Cauli-Mac & Cheese, 7 Net Carbs of Comfort

What’s wrong with this title? How can we call it Mac & Cheese when there is nothing even remotely resembling Macaroni in it? This is the ongoing argument between my husband John, and I. Now, while part of me agrees with him, the part that grew up on homemade, crispy topped, giant casserole dishes of ooey, gooey, ACTUAL macaroni…there’s also the Keto/LCHF/Banting goddess that resides in my brain gently reminding me that cauliflower actually is similar to macaroni.

Low Carb Crunchy Chocolate Bark


Well…anytime you see the word CHOCOLATE…you know carbs are going to be involved somehow. However, it is possible to keep those carbs to a minimum and still satisfy your sweet tooth and your craving for chocolate.

No. You can not have a Snickers bar, or a Reeses Peanut butter cup or even a Peppermint Patty. But Lindt Supreme Dark 90% Excellence Bar is your friend. Melted and mixed with a little stevia or xylitol it is just as sweet as milk chocolate. Continue reading “Low Carb Crunchy Chocolate Bark”
