I didn’t realize low-carb could taste great until I had my first cauliflower crust pizza, which my kids really liked as well. Since then I have been kind of addicted to seeing how many carbs are in the food my family eats, and to cut a few corners where I could. Truthfully, I used to relate low-carb to cardboard-tasting food – but I was so wrong.
Low carb doesn’t have to be tasteless and it sure doesn’t have to taste like cardboard. Some of my favourite meals now have few carbs, and I try replacing at least two meals per week with a low-carb option. I even have a good repertoire of Low Carb Desserts!
