I usually buy plain Greek yogurt (higher in protein than regular yogurt) and add a couple packets of Splenda or one packet of Stevia and about 1/4 cup of blueberries or sliced strawberries. I don't know the exact carb count, however, I do know that I am getting my calcium, protein and fiber without the added sugar of yogurt with fruit already added.

I like to add blueberries or sliced strawberries too!

I read somewhere that lemons have more sugar in them than strawberries!

Wow, that is interesting. I have a few low-carb recipes that include lemon zest and lemon juice. I do know that berries are lower in carbs than most other types of fruit.

Lemons are one of the super foods that is supposed to help control blood sugar along with avocados, almonds, cherries and a few other I can't remember.

I don't know about the carb count..it's definitely something to look into!

If you have a Kroger grocery store around you, they have a wonderful low carb yogurt--it's called Carbmaster. Usually 60-80 calories and 4 g carbs. Good flavors too, like strawberry pomegranate, carrot cake, vanilla chai. And I think they taste pretty good. I believe they're sweetened with Splenda.

I bought three flavors --mango peach, watermelon strawberry and berry pomegranate and really like them a lot. I was expecting an aftertaste because I'm not a fan of Splenda (sucralose) but there wasn't any. The little bottle is cute and small enough to fit discreetly in a purse or pocket and all you need is one squirt per 8 oz. I was drinking out of 32 oz. cup and used only 3 and it was still great. In the Walmart by me they're $3.48 each, so not cheap, but they're an option when you don't want to use Crystal Lite packets, diet syrups, or plain water and seltzer.

I also added some of the mango peach to diet ginger ale and it was delish.

You mean in the store? Yes, they were right next to the Crystal Lite and they were VERY popular. Half the flavors were completely sold out.

Oooh thanks! I've been seeing these advertised and wondered if there would be an aftertaste. And I never would have thought of adding to diet ginger ale! I'll be on the lookout as well.

I tried the yogurt tonight. Each 6 oz container has 60 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 4 carbs and 9 grams of protein.

The texture is thicker than yogurt, but not off-putting. I tried carrot cake and it was really good...tasted more like spice cake batter. I will definitely have it again with some chopped pecans because I felt like I wanted something crunchy with it!

Thanks Lin!

You can find almond milk pretty much anywhere these days. You can find it either in the cold case with milk or on a shelf at room temperature.

Myself, I prefer the cold milk. I buy the Blue Diamond Unsweetened Vanilla. It's DEFINITELY better than soy milk. To me, it doesn't taste that much different than regular milk. I normally use the vanilla for my cereal.

I've also purchased the unsweetened original. I'm going to be using this for my savory recipes that call for milk. I've read that almond milk works well as a substitution and for 1 carb per cup..it's definitely worth trying.

Try Wal-mart..I've also found it at Kroger, Sprouts and Whole Foods.

Definitely have to look for that almond milk Misty- thank you

Found some of those Shiritaki noodles that Cors mentioned early in the thread

http://www.miraclenoodle.com/miracle...-products.html


Does anyone have an opinion on how they taste before I invest any money on buying them in a big quantity?

Bleck..lol We picked up some and OMG they were so very, very disgusting. I don't know if it was the shape I bought which was the angel hair, or what, but I just couldn't do them. I rinsed them for 10 minutes under cold water, cooked them according to package directions and the texture was just very, very off putting.

I would buy one bag and try them and I would suggest getting a thicker noodle than the angel hair.

+1 for almond milk, and -after the initial strangeness of the texture wears off- I like shirataki too.

I really like this site. It has a wealth of information and recipes.

This is a great article on low carb/high fiber foods!

I've been using this site, too. I also just joined www.sparkrecipes.com. There's a recipe calculator on it. You input your ingredients and the servings and it gives you all the nutritional info. I put in a new recipe I had for a coconut pie and it gave me all the stats. I can't tell if it's really that cool or if I'm just a dork...lol
