Here’s mine, “A Meal Plan you can live with.” There are many other important factors, however you must control what you consume. coconut flour gravy is low carb the gravy tastes great coconut flour is easy to use!

Add to that 1/2 cup of heavy cream and I like to add some of the meat as well. See below. 3) I experimented but eventually I added 4 TBS of Coconut Flour to the mixture. I whisked the mixture while adding the Coconut Flour. One unexpected benefit? … Coconut Flour does NOT ‘clump’ o Continue reading >>

Classic Low Carb Pot Roast With Vegetables & Gravy

Classic Low Carb Pot Roast With Vegetables & Gravy

Home Classic Low Carb Pot Roast with Vegetables & Gravy Classic Low Carb Pot Roast with Vegetables & Gravy Hooray for cooler weather and my favorite time of year. This month I look forward to brisk after dinner walks with my family followed by cozy evenings spent in front of the fireplace (or t.v. lets be real). Its time for fuzzy sweaters and curling up with a good book (or iPhone) and the resident animal foot-warmer. Festive gatherings mark the season and provide us with a chance to shine by sharing our best recipes with family and friends. Whether its grandmothers recipe for cheese pie or a great comfort food favorite like pot roast, everyone has a star recipe. Pot roast is classic comfort food which delivers melt-in-your-mouth, fall-apart tender beef. But, let us not forget those savory cooked vegetables, in a broth so rich in body and flavor, that it will have you making excuses to sit at the table longer. And, pot roast is one of those fix-it-and-forget it meals thats super easy to prepare. Sure it takes a good 15-20 minutes to get everything ready to go, but after that, its hands-off until its done. Ive worked on this low carb beef pot roast recipe on and off for over a year. Its mouthwatering delicious and fairly easy to make. Ive prepared it both in the crockpot and in the oven and prefer this oven method simply because it concentrates the flavors and Ill take flavorful over fast and less flavorful any day. Luckily, this pot roast recipe is pretty easy and it does most of the cooking by itself. The recipe starts with a chuck roast. I like to use chuck roast for my pot roast because the meat is marbled throughout and there is a lot of connective tissue between the muscle. If its cooked long enough, all of the fat and connective tissues melt out providing a beau Continue reading >>
