Crispy Pepperoni Chips

6 ounces pepperoni, thinly sliced

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Lay the pepperoni slices in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven and soak up the excess grease by pressing paper towels against the pepperoni chips. Return the pan to the oven and bake an additional 2 to 4 minutes, until the pepperoni slices are very crispy.

Serve as a snack anytime or use in place of crackers for dipping or for topping with your favorite cheese! They’ll stay fresh and crispy for 1 to 2 days if you store them in an airtight container.

The last two recipes are quick, simple and if you are trying to get your kids to watch their carb intake without them knowing it…this is a great way.
They both are less than 1 carb per serving and very little fat.


Still to come, low carb soup and stew recipes to take off the winter chill raspberry

Mikki finally got me to try a Zone shake. My whole family loved it. Looks like breakfast will be changing around here. All breakfast haters, like me, should give them a try.

Thanks, KAT!

I’m still scared of those shakes. I hear they have improved, but the last one I tried was, um, not so good.

Marla, I hate shakes & I hate chocolate. But these are a whole different experience. Ask Mikki or Sifu Dan for their recipes. You may be surprised.

I am the first to admit how nasty the old version was… the new ones are much better.

I get to be home a lot more now, so there’s plenty of time to make one in the morning. O.k. I’ll give it a whirl…

How about a spinach and blue cheese stuffing?
Works well in turkey/chicken breasts also.

1 package(10 ozs) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 ozs blue cheese or feta cheese
2 ozs reduced-fat cream cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
4 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
4 1/2 tsp dried basil leaves
2 tsp dried oregano leaves
      Black pepper to taste
      Paprika

Combine all ingredients, mix well.    Enjoy!
