Low Carb-in’ It Up

If you know me in the slightest, I am a magnet for sickness. Not that I’m always sick, but when I’m sick, I’m reaaaal sick forever. So of course, since colds and the flu and upper respiratory illnesses are going around in my area, I’m basically dying over here. Being sick, I have no energy to work out, nor can my extremely sore throat handle that pressure. While I’m waiting to go to the doctor and, hopefully, have her fix me up, I’ve been looking to incorporate some low-carb meals into my diet.

Here are a few I’ve found in my searching that look delish.

Easy Fried Rice

You will need…
White rice
Water chestnuts
Teriyaki sauce
Bacon (four pieces)
Soy sauce
Any other Chinese sauces, if wanted

Make a serving of white rice. (unbleached rice is better for you!)
Chop up small pieces of bacon; about four pieces
In separate skillet, cook bacon until 3/4 done.
When rice is done, add bacon and drained water chestnuts to the rice.
Add about 3 tablespoons of teriyaki and soy (or to taste).
Add any other sauces if wanted. We usually use the House of Tsang brand; their great! I’d recommend the General Tsao, Spicy Stir Fry and the Wok Oil. I’m sure their all great; those are just what I’ve tried.
Stir until browned.

Delish Green Beans

You will need…

A package of green beans

Olive oil

Onions (about one large)

Bacon (optional)


And of course, spices!


Cut the ends off the green beans and set aside. Chop up about 3 cloves of garlic (or as much as you want) and set aside with the green beans. Lastly, chop up the onion.

(My boyfriend likes to add just water to the skillet and let the green beans boil for awhile before he drains them and adds the rest of the ingredients, but I don’t see the point of that. So either way! This is how I do it…)

Heat up a skillet on the stove and pour in some olive oil. Not too much!

Throw the green beans in, since they will take the longest.

In a side skillet, cook up some bacon, about 2 slices.

After the green beans are about half way done, throw in the garlic and onions. Stir occasionally.

When the bacon is done, chop into small flakes and add to the green bean pot.

Add a bit of garlic salt, and pepper.
