So my husband went to the doctor and was advised that he needed to completely change his way of eating. I don't mind telling you that after working all day, we often ate fast food or quick fix meals which definitely equated to high-fat and high carbs.
The highlight of my week was knowing for sure that Wednesday was Wing Wednesday which meant I didn't have to cook since we would be ordering pizza and 1/2 price wings from a large pizza chain. After the visit to the doctor, our whole eating lives would change.
I began my search for low-fat, low-carb recipes. It has been really fun creating new weekly menus complete with shopping list. We have been able to try many new recipes which have been wonderful. I think there has only been one recipe which my husband
and son didn't like and most likely won't be repeated.
Allrecipes has been great. The only thing I would like to see is for me to figure out an easier way to import some recipes from other sites. When I link them just as a weblink, it doesn't include the ingredients in my shopping list.
I love to take pictures of the food once I have made the recipes. It is so fun attempting to make a professional looking picture from my tablet or cell phone. I think I have taken some nice pics. You will have to decide for yourself.
