  Nay, I started with a recipe for what amounted to SOS, or Creamed Beef on Toast, except that the recipe used hamburger instead of dried beef. That sounded good, so I tried to think of what to put it on, since toast was out. Usually I put that sort of thing on veggies, but for some reason that wasn't what I wanted. So I thought of eggs, instead. And then I thought of using sausage instead of ground beef. So it ends up sort of like Biscuits and Gravy with a side of eggs, only without the biscuits. I've had the extra sausage gravy over the eggs, way back in the days when I ate biscuits and gravy made with flour, and it was good. So that's how I came up with this.

NowYouDidIt - Four large eggs is close to a cup, raw, and more than that cooked, depending on how it's cooked. It has about 25 grams of protein, which is a good sized serving. And it usually costs between 40 and 50 cents, which is cheap for a meal's worth of protein. And, as you say, it is very versatile. There are lots of ways to eat them, though I tend to cook them the same few ways most of the time.

    Maw do you think eggs are a cheaper protein than meats? It sure seems that they are, they are also more versatile. My kids don't like large quantities of meat- I'm thinking of going more with eggs. Only problem is I can't make them fast enough- they eat them up fast! emoticon

    I never considered putting gravy on eggs. Interesting idea.

Free low carb kindle cookbooks

Thursday, May 30, 2013

I was at amazon.com today for some reason (I don't even remember why or whether I did what needed to be done there!) and thought I'd see if they had any new low carb cookbooks for free. They do! At least, they're new since the last time i looked. Here are some of the ones I found. I haven't looked at them yet, but maybe there's something there that would interest you. As I understand it, you can get free Kindle for PC software so you can essentially turn your PC into a kindle, in case you don't actually have one of the handy little devices.

Zero Carb Slow Cooker Cookbook, by Susan Sterling. (Not that they're really zero carb, of course. It looks like she just took regular recipes and if there was something with carbs, said to get a zero carb version of it. Zero carb marinara sauce? Give me a break! With tomatoes? But, that aside, and recognizing that most things are going to have more than -0- carbs, some of the recipes look interesting. There are some other Zero Carb Cookbooks, too, and I assume the same applies to them. But, after all, the cookbooks are free.)

0 Carb Cookbook, by Susan Sterling. See comment above.

20 Incredible Coconut Flour Recipes, by Marissa Paine. Some should be low carb, anyway.

300 Low Carb Slow Cooker Recipes, by Dana Carpender. If it's by Dana, it's got to be good!

Best of Grain Free Meal Plans, Volume I, by Cara Faus. Again, some at least should be low carb.

Blood Sugar Diet Recipes, by Stephen Robinson. "For preventing diabetes" so it's hard to tell what it will recommend.

Cave Wraps: 40 Fast and Easy Paleo Recipes, by Ivy Martin. Paleo isn't necessarily low carb, but a lot of it is.

Paleo Diet Handbook: Quick and Easy Paleo Diet Recipes, by Michael Thomas and Eric Edwards

Paleo Recipes for Slow Cookers and Crockpots, by Stephanie Haber

Quick and Easy Chicken and Seafood Paleo Entrees, by George Bryant and Abel James

The Extreme Fat Burning Protein Diet, by Scott Warren

The Paleo Aficionado Chicken Recipe Cookbook, by Amanda Matthews

The Paleo Cookbook (Dinner Edition), by Ryan E. Taylor

The Paleolithic Diet - What it is and why it works, by Mackenzie Jagger

The Paleolithic Slow Cooker Cookbook, by Amy Atlas, Jeremy L, et al

The Ultimate Low Carb Diet Cookbook, by Donna Pliner Rodnitzky

Wheat Belly Trying Gluten Free, by Ravi Kishore

Wheat Free Cookbook, by Marcia Hansen

Zero Carb Appetizer Cookbook

And then I had trouble connecting with amazon so I quit. Anyway, you get the picture. There are lots of free electronic cookbooks available, as well as all the recipes online. I happen to like reading cookbooks, so findng so many free ones is great.

    I just looked up "The Extreme Fat Burning Protein Diet" book and my kindle store gave me a price of $8.97. But I do have "My Grain Brain Cookbook" & " Unravelling Paleo" which were both free

Stuffed Peppers of Many Kinds

Thursday, May 30, 2013

Kyndra Holley, who writes the Peace, Love and Low Carb blog, has recipes for at least half a dozen kinds of stuffed peppers. It seems like she takes recipes that need to be held in something (like tacos, or pizza) and uses the pepper shells to hold them. A great idea! I can get big peppers for 50 cents during the summer at the Farmers Market, which would be the time to try them.

Here are links to her recipes:

s.html


Kitchen Sink Stuffed Peppers - peaceloveandlowcarb.blogspot.com/201
2/02/kitchen-sink-stuffed-pepper-cups.
html


And I thought I saw a recipe for Taco Stuffed Peppers, but maybe that was someone else using the same idea.

I haven't tried any of these, but it sounds like a way to sort of fancy up a meal and make the meat go farther, especially if you grow your own peppers or have access to cheap ones at the Farmers Market.
