Low Carb Sources


#1

What are good/efficient (nutrition & budget wise) low carb sources to take during cutting/dieting?

I know veggies and fruits come to mind, but what types of veggies and fruits do you guys suggest for cutting/dieting?

???

Fruits are not low carb.

I'd recommend you check the exact proportions of these on a site like http://www.nutritiondata.com but some that come to mind are:

Broccoli
Spinach
Cabbage (various kinds)
Lettuce (various kinds)
Cucumber
Zucchini/Courgette
Eggplant/Aubergine
Radish
Peppers
Tomatoes
Avocado
Berries
Watermelon

Recipe for low carb peanut butter cookies thanks to Jelena...

Ingredients
1 cup peanut butter, creamy or crunchy
1 Splenda
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a large baking sheet.

In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, 1 cup sugar replacement, the egg, and vanilla, and stir
well with a spoon. Roll the dough into balls the size of walnuts. Place the balls on the prepared
baking sheet. With a fork, dipped in sugar replacement to prevent sticking, press a crisscross
design on each cookie. Bake for 12 minutes, remove from the oven, and sprinkle the cookies with some
of the remaining sugar replacement. Cool slightly before removing from pan.
