Crackslaw with Chicken – Reduced Calorie Option

Using chicken is a great idea if you want something with fewer calories yet offering the same great flavor as beef crackslaw gives you. The following crackslaw with chicken recipe is really tasty and perfect for a low carb diet whether you are following Atkins or another low carb diet regime.

The crackslaw with chicken recipe itself is very similar to the beef version because chicken is versatile enough to be a perfect beef substitute but of course you can apply your own tweaks should you wish. Chicken is lower in calories than beef. If you’re low carbing then you probably aren’t counting your calories, just your carbs, but calories do matter so you might want to try this if your low carb diet isn’t working properly and you’re wondering whether you’re still having more calories than your body can burn. Try this crackslaw with chicken dish for size.

Chicken or Beef: Either is Fine

Swapping beef for chicken affects the total calories but it does not affect the net carbs, so you can use whichever you prefer, or if there is something on sale at the grocery store just use whatever they have, even turkey or lamb or perhaps a mixed ground meat package but take a peek at the label. Here in Holland they often sneak sugar and chemicals into their ground meat (seriously!) – better safe than sorry when making crackslaw with chicken or beef. Continue reading

Low Carb Tortilla Pizza

This low carb tortilla pizza is incredibly good and it takes about 10 minutes to make and the same again to cook. Whether or not you have made pizza before, you will find this low carb tortilla pizza incredibly simple, and the sky is the limit as far as toppings are concerned.

Use a low-carb tortilla to make your pizza. I recommend the Mama Lupe ones because they’re so good and only 3 carbs (and 60 calories) each. And they are the closest in flavor to regular tortillas. I also tried the La Tortilla brand for my low carb tortilla pizza because those are only 50 calories each but… nope not as good as the Mama Lupe ones.

This low carb tortilla pizza recipe makes a fabulous dinner, and it is also quick enough to make for lunch. Whatever meal you are making this pizza for, you are sure to find it filling and delicious.

Keep some low-carb tortillas in the refrigerator (they keep for weeks in there) and rustle one of these up whenever you’re in the mood for some comfort food! Continue reading
