    • Pantry items, cooking ingredients, please list your low carb choices.


      I am starting a thread to list the ingredients we use for cooking, i.e. pantry items, cooking ingredients, etc.

      Here are some I use:

      Bulla light cream for decaf coffee and in cooking creamy sauces.
      Splenda tablets - these are much lower in carbs for almost all purposes - only hassle is you have to crush them first (I use a heavy mallet).
      Almond meal - to use in cooking (muffins, etc).
      Hazelnut meal - same as for almond meal above.
      Cottees diet toppings - add flavour to protein shakes, muffins.
      Cadbury Bourneville cocoa - cooking, protein shakes.
      Cadbury Lite chocolate - tastes almost like the real thing to me. As a snack, pushed into muffins, melted with cream as a chocolate sauce. Grated on top of desserts, cheesecakes etc.
      Philladelphia cream cheese (I only use regular block for cooking).
      Sour cream - Farmland brand - as a topping for cheesecakes.
      Baking powder - fluffs up pancakes and muffins.
      Readywhites - frozen egg white pack - contains three sachets - each sachet equivalent to 3 egg whites. I find these are handy and save on chucking out egg yolks.
      Cooking spray (I use the olive oil for all my cooking).
      Of course, POH muffin/cereal mixes and other items available in POH Shop (MRM shakes, protein bars).
      Currently waiting on Atkins supplies through GNC shops in Melbourne (Prahran branch is closest to me). Basically I'm only after the Sugar Free Pancake Syrup.

      I would love to hear about ingredients or good finds everyone else uses.

      Whilst looking through for chicken recipes I came across this thought perhaps some others may like it
