    Five Minute Cheese Puff Pizza -- 2.5g carbs

    Serves: 1
    Nutritional Information: 2.6g total carbs, 0.2g fiber, 2.4g net carbs, 9.6g protein, 12g fat, 160 calories


    INGREDIENTS
    Slice of deluxe American cheese (1g carb per slice, made with cream not soybean oil)
    (I don't know if this cheese is sold in Europe, but it is a processed slice cheese made with cream & whey)
    1 tsp of Zestlicious Pizza Sauce (below)
    1 oz of shredded mozzarella cheese

    DIRECTIONS
    1) microwave single slice of deluxe American cheese for 35 or so seconds, on silicone mat or parchment paper -- silicone mat works best for me.
    2) peel off and invert
    3) spread on the Zestlicious Pizza Sauce
    4) apply the mozzarella, making sure to cover the cheese puff all the way to very edges.
    5) broil at 500F for about 3 or so minutes until cheese is browned
    6) enjoy!

    Zestlicious Pizza Sauce:
    6 oz can tomato paste
    1/4 cup water
    1/2 tsp dried oregeno
    1/2 tsp dried basal
    1/4 tsp ground cayenne
    1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp onion powder
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1 tablespoon olive oil

    I also like using sour cream or creme fraiche instead of cheese for a lighter pancake. Avoid low fat versions though as they've often got starch added, so carbs and can go weird when cooked.

    I guess it's figuring out what you like to eat, and why. If you enjoy the basic taste/texture of cereals, but miss the sweetness, maybe try using an artificial sweetner on unsweetened ones? Or, if your meter doesn't spike, add some dried fruit? They'll have quite a lot of natural sugars, so may have much the same effect as regular cereal.

    Or there's alternatives. If you skip the toast and go easy on the beans, a traditional full-english is pretty low carb. Downside is it takes longer to get ready. I don't usually eat breakfast, but there are some timesaving tricks. You can microwave fried eggs in a shallow bowl in 2-3mins. Add a little oil to stop them sticking, and cover to avoid yolk eggsplosions. Or give'em a quick beating with a fork, add salt & pepper and maybe a dash of milk, nuke for 2-3mins and it's quick scrambled eggs. You can also add chopped mushrooms, veg, salmon, bacon or whatever takes your fancy to jazz that up a bit.

    A new favorite recipe. This is from Brenda Zorn over at Ketogenicforums.com. She does wonders with pork rinds. They are like peanut butter cups with crispies. They do melt and need to be kept refrigerated. I used a low carb chocolate bar instead of making my own chocolate because I can be lazy and then the chocolate doesn’t melt so fast. They are delicious even without added sweetener and very filling.
    https://www.ketogenicforums.com/t/chocolate-peanut-butter-bars-very-low-carb-by-zorn/27602

    NEW KETOCANDY BY ZORN
    Ingredients:
    1/4 cup butter, softened
    1 cup finely crushed pork rinds, like pork rind flour
    1/2 cup peanut butter. (Be smart and choose a unsweetened non-hydrogenated one)
    1 teaspoon almond extract

    MIX.
    Add sweetener to taste.

    MIX AGAIN.

    SPREAD/PRESS into a 8x8 pan.
    Topping:
    Melt part of a 100% cocoa chocolate bar with half as much coconut oil and add liquid sweetener to taste. I used liquid sucralose. Make enough topping to pour/spread on top.
    CHILL until set. Cut into squares.
    NOM NOM NOM NOM
    Cut into 12 squares these are less than 2 grams net carbohydrate each

    Economy so depends on what you usually have in your pantry.

    Sheet pan chicken fajitas basically requires some peppers and spices
    https://asweetlife.org/sheet-pan-chicken-fajitas/

    Spiced roasted chicken
    https://asweetlife.org/coffee-spiced-roast-chicken/

    Breaded and baked with almond flour crust, or you could use crushed pork rinds
    I would probably add some spices to the crust.
    https://asweetlife.org/low-carb-gluten-free-chicken-milanese-with-almond-flour/

    My Mom hated to cook. Her chicken, however, was quite good and easy.
    Yes, it’s a just throw it together and cook recipe.

    Rinse chicken pieces and place in a shallow pan with water. Maybe 1/4 inch deep (1 cm ?)
    Sprinkle with poultry seasoning, garlic salt, and celery salt.
    (I never seem to have the celery salt so I do without. You do want a fair amount of seasoning/salt)
    Place in 350 degree oven for about 1 hr.

    The chicken seems to puff up and absorb moisture from the water while the skin gets crispy.

    Don’t forget to make broth and then chicken soup from the bones. Can’t get much more economical than that :)
