I would try a splash of vinegar. I would probably try rice wine or apple cider vinegar. Maybe even some sesame oil...oh and garlic for sure..maybe even some sliced green onions.

I also forgot to mention some red pepper flakes for a little bit of heat if you can take it!


A snack for today...cheese crackers

Nice cheese crackers!

And thanks for the suggestions. I will add some more pepper next time. I was aiming for Chinese chicken but I'm liking the onion and garlic idea too.

I love garlic in my asian dishes! I don't know well the green onion will hold up to the crockpot!

Thanks! Who knew melting cheese in the microwave could taste so yummy!

Marinate in soy sauce and Sherry for 1 hour...

Then, make the wing sauce:
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup hoisin (Dynasty isn't the best brand ever) sauce
1 1/2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp hot chili/garlic sauce
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/3 cup sugar (splenda)
1/3 cup white vinegar

(to thicken, use 1 1/2 tsp of cornstarch & a tiny bit of water - until it dissolves....not sure if you can use some...)

Deep fry the wings in PEANUT OIL...make sure they're dry.
Then, clean out the oil from the pan and put your wing sauce into the pan/wok (until it boils)
Then add the thickener and keep stirring until the sauce becomes thick. Once the wings are covered in sauce...eat up!

I have to second what Misty says. MY body doesn't have as much of a "health" issue with fat and salt but it does have issues with carbs. There are studies that back up both sides of this "debate". Personally, I feel WE know what's best for our bodies and can decide accordingly. Salt and fat not good for you, then don't eat it and don't hang out a low carb thread.

I have a double whammy: diabetes AND problematic liver. And my liver wasn't harmed the old fashioned way either - Vitamin B pills screwed me, not alcohol. There are people that assume that a low sugar/low carb food will be good for you. Not if you don't use the serving size.

Low calorie diets are dangerous, I admit that. I see a nutritionist, my calories are about 1800-2000 per day, 50-60 TOTAL carbohydrates per meal. Does that mean I go overboard on some meal? Sure does. Do I always trim the fat off of pork chops before cooking or eating? NEVER before cooking, and off before I eat ONLY if someone's watching.

Yes, we are adults here, but there is research that high fat diets, high protein diets are bad, too.

Just saying

I've learned to reduce my fat by subsititution: turkey bacon, chicken sausage. I've learned to reduce portion sizes: 1 or 2 slices of pizza at a meal fill me up.

YES I do still have pizza. I'm diabetic, NOT dead.

Elimination of garlic salt in recipes is a great way to reduce sodium intake. Use garlic powder or granulated garlic.

I bake the wings at a hgh temperature, coat them first with a little oil, salt and pepper. Then I put my hot sauce on them: the family things I'm strange since I drink Frank's Hot Sauce from the bottle.

There is evidence that a high fat, high protein diet is good for you as well. You'll have to chose which propaganda you want to believe.

My body doesn't tolerate 50-60 carbs per meal. I have no liver issues, no heart issues, no cholesterol issues, so my way of eating works for me.

We all have access to the research. Watch the movie FatHead. It will open your eyes.

If you want to debate diets...take it to Hyde Park or the Health Board. This is a thread for those of us to post low carb recipes and product reviews. Not a place to declare a superior way of eating.

Now, on with the low carb yummies!

Yes and I have four dead relatives in my family to my count: all of them women, all of them obese, all of whom were made sicker via outdated creeds about diet and health similar to yours. Thank you for sharing but as has already been said several times here already, YRMV.

Rojodi, you've said what you felt you needed to say, and now let's move on. This isn't the appropriate board for health or diet lectures.

Folks my sister just gifted me with a Ronco Rotisserie machine! XD I'm so excited. I couldn't wait for it to come in the mail. Now that it's here I'm just sitting here looking at it. I don't know what to try. Anyone have one? I'm really hoping this will help me to eat better this winter.

Lilly, all I can say is...those things make the BEST turkeys ever. The trick is just to find one small enough to fit in. I think 10 lbs was the limit, but oh my, so juicy and delish!

Other than that, all I ever did was chickens. Lame, I know.

ooh how about a gyro/souvlaki type thing. Marinate pieces of chicken or pork or lamb, stack on the stick thingy and let it cook. I'm thinking crunchy caramelized outside, moist juicy inside, and you can slice of as much as you like for days.

My bff has one and makes the best turkey and chicken in it. She said her maximum turkey size is 15 lbs. She has also used it for roasts and other big chunks of meat. I don't think she has made any small things in it. She doesn't usually make small things anyway, so it is nothing against the machine.

I have one (well it's at the house and I have yet to retrieve it but I will) and I put dry rubs on chickens and used to make at least two a week--one for eating that night and one for snacking and recipes that required cooked chicken. There's nothing like a rotisserie chicken. I grew up on rotisseries because my Italian grandma swore by them.

Mine is the big one and I could cook three medium chickens or two oven roasters at a time.

EDT: Just remembered, mine came with kebob rods and I DID make pork and beef kebobs pretty often. I marinated the pork in pineapple or orange juice 8 hours-overnight and the beef in Robusto Italian dressing, but also olive oil with fresh chopped garlic and herbs works well too. I'm allergic to peppers to alternate with the meat so I used things like grape tomatoes, pineapple chunks, peach slices, apricots, chunks of red onion, marinated mushrooms, etc.

But those promises I made
No longer hold me
Mercurial more wayward by the hour
The shackles fall away I'm in your power



People throw rocks at things that shine.
