I am just curious to see what you all are eating and what is your favorite meal while eating this way.

I just concocted a meal from cooked chicken (1/2 cup) Franks wing sauce ( oh yummy and -o- carbs), mayo and about 2 oz of cream cheese (4 carbs) and sprinkled with cheddar cheese (1 oz - 2 carbs) and baked it in the oven... OH YUM it just gives me the creaminess, the zing and chicken all together......

What meal has made you go OH thats SOOOOO GOOD! (Sorry Mr. Food in Heaven)

My favorite Atkins meal is eggplant parm. I "bread" the eggplant with grated parmesan cheese seasoned with garlic powder, oregano, parsley, italian seasoning and black pepper....dip it in beaten egg first....then fry it in olive oil until golden & crispy. I layer this in a baking dish with tomato sauce & mozzarella cheese. I usually have a salad with oil & vinegar dressing with this.
I also love spaghetti squash with alfredo sauce with slices of italian sausage.
The cheeseburger quiche & the just like twice baked potatoes from Linda's Low Carb recipes are also favorites of mine.

I don't eat low-carb, but when Atkins was really popular in the UK spaghetti squash was readily available. I miss it. I've been really craving it lately.

The other night I made a pasta sauce from onions, wilted swiss chard and garlic and a handful of small plum tomatos some sausage and, of course, oregano. It was soooo good. The whole time I was eating it with whole wheat pasta I kept thinking it would have been amazing with spaghetti squash. :(

I might have to make a special trip to Borough market and pay through the nose for some if they have it. Hmmm... I wonder if I could trick my son into eating it. THAT would be worth the money.
