      Let me know if you think of anything else handy from the site to put here.

      I agree - I've been searching through the recipes but i'm confused about what I can and can't eat. Lots of them include cheese.

      Is it possible for us to have a BT recipe thread (like the Atkins one)? Perhaps everyone could just post their favourite meal as a start?

      Yes I think it is a great idea, I have suggested this before, obviously I can't do it as I don't do BT so totally up to you guys :)

      Glad I'm not the only one who pilfered the book off someone else :D

      The salsa chicken is really good. I just put some chopped up chicken in a pyrex dish, mixed in the salsa, threw in a small chilli and some garlic, cooked it, and served it with riced (grated) cooked cauliflower. That's the best one I've done so far :)
    • Re: Body Trim Recipes??? help!!

      There are a couple of really nice recipes here for the new BT'ers. I have always just tried to use the same meals for all of the family just modifying my dinner to remove the carbs. But these I can give everyone.

      When they have tacos, I just do taco without the shell, just layer the ingredients on a plate and eat with a knife and fork. The same with hamburgers. Take away the bun and its just as nice and not necessary to make different dinners because I am on a diet. Same if we go to Mums for dinner I ask her not to put potato on my plate or rice or whatever.

      The only thing I have trouble with is pasta as I love it. I have recently had zucchini "spaghetti" with bolanaise sauce. I bought a julienne peeler from the fancy kitchenware shop and cut down the length of a zucchini. It made strings almost exactly the size of normal spaghetti strands. I put them into the pasta bowl no cooking or steaming and just put the hot bolanaise on top. It was really good. I am gonna try it now with marinara sauce - my favorite :D

      This low carb way of eating is gonna be a long term thing so I'm trying to make it easy on myself. Any other tips or hints would be most welcome. :)

      Some of those sound nice and easily adaptable for me on Atkins.

      Whatever low carb you are doing stir fries are your friend, I reckon. I love roasts too, just don't have the gravy, (I save the juice/drippings and pour that over my meat and veges) with roasted veges from the allowable ones roasts are wonderful. And you can stuff a chicken, I use LSA mix (recipe below)

      Is there a foods list in BT, can you get hold of that. And can't your friend get her password sent to her?

      My recipe is free of the hot food group as I am allergic to anything of the chilli family and I have a problem with garlic. You would add garlic at the onion stage and them the chillis if you use them. It is best made ahead and cold when you stuff the bird, but I have spooned it straight from the frypan on occasion.

      Ingredients (size/number of ingredients depends on size of bird)
      * Onion, brown, chopped
      * Celery, chopped
      * Bacon, chopped
      * Mushrooms, smallish ones thinly sliced, any type can be used, the Dutch brown ones are particularly nice in this
      * Herbs, I use fennel seeds, sage and rosemary every time, plus oregano, mixed Italian blend - whatever appeals to my taste on the day!
      * LSA (ground linseed/sunflower/almond meal - available from the health food aisle in Coles or in bulk at health food stores.
      * Oil - olive, butter, even lard
      * Lemon juice
      * Water or chicken stock (or partly wine - that's optional and adds carbs)

      Heat the oil at medium heat in a heavy bottom pan, I use a stainless steel one. Throw in about 20 fennel seeds and the onion. Stir fairly constantly, when the onion starts to go transparent, add the herbs & bacon. Stir for a few more minutes and add all the veges EXCEPT the mushroom. Stir till they just start to brown a bit, then add a tablespoon of butter and then the mushrooms, don't put the butter away, you'll want it again.

      Make sure your LSA and water/stock are to hand and ready to grab.

      Stir this lots all together and once the mushies start to cook a bit add 2 tablespoons butter and turn heat up a bit. Now add your LSA. I just keep adding until the amount 'looks right', usually 4 - 6 tablespoons (I use a little scoop so it is hard to gauge). You need to stir constantly and may need to add a bit more butter. You then add some water/stock - not a lot, enough to make it a bit sloppy looking and then add your squeeze of lemon. Now you stir constantly until the liquid is mostly evaporated and you have a nice, slightly crumbly but moist mix. Taste to test.

      Naturally, it is impossible to put a carb count on this as the amounts vary with each bird, depending on size. But LSA 4.69 carbs per 100g, so it's low. And you don't eat great amounts of it, so I usually have a tablespoon or so with my meat and count it as 3 carbs. I always think as I make it what the poor brainwashed folk on low fat diets are missing out on!

      And savour that chook (or whatever)!
