FRIENDLY FOODS FOR CARB EATERS
ASPARAGUS, very low calorie and great flavor. Steam in the microwave-ready bag for five minutes, let it stand for a minute and then serve it up. Add a very small amount of Ghee (butter substitute), salt and pepper for a delicious low calorie food.

Look at that serving size! Three servings in a whole bag.
Helpful hint: Split a bag with a friend, this lowers the carb load for each of two servings to 4.5.
|Cut Broccoli Neutri Facts|
Broccoli is a favorite of ours, notice that a whole bag is almost an entire day of carbs for a Keto diet, split a bag with a friend.
|California Blend Nutri Facts|
Another high carb blend of veggies, split a bag with a friend (see a pattern here?)
One of our dinner favorites, Chopped Spinach
|Chopped Spinach Nutri Facts|
Five servings in this bag? Are they kidding? You know what to do, split a bag with a friend.
|Cut Green Beans, Nutri Facts|
These are not lectin-free, we're no longer eating them but if you must split a bag with a friend.
|Peas and Carrots Blend, Nutri Facts|
CARB-O-MANIA, Peas and carrots were a favorite here, maybe someday they'll sneak back a little (after we've hit all our weight loss goals). Peas and Carrots are high in calories and carbs but they pack a pretty good pile of protein too. Nobody said this was gonna be easy but you can do it if you read the nutrition facts.
Happy eating to all!
