Superbowl can be a landmine of bad food choices on the Slow Carb or Paleo diet if you don’t plan for it. You can also stick to the plan pretty easily and eat some killer food if you’re up for a bit of prep. Here’s a few ideas to have a Slow Carb or Paleo [...]

I’ll give you a hint: if you’re from the Rio de Plata region of South America, chances are you’ve been drinking it since you were a child, and your family’s been drinking it for [...]
Chicken Tenders, Chicken Fingers, Chicken Strips, Chicken McNuggets. Normally we think of these things as breaded, deep-fried (and possibly mechanically-separated, chemical-filled) parcels of junk food. It doesn’t have to be that way. Using almond meal and some other seasonings, you can create your own, healthy almond-crusted chicken tenders. Ingredients 1 cup almond flour Sea Salt to [...]
The weekend’s almost here, which means it’s the perfect time to fool-proof your ability to stick to the plan next week. There’s one way that’s almost guaranteed to help get you results every time. In this post, I’ll show you what that is and how you can easily integrate it into your new lifestyle.
How does your kitchen match up to the needs of a slow-carb diet?
Here at The Slow Carb Foodie, we’re committed to helping you become the best slow-carb chef you can be. Part of becoming that chef is working with the right tools. Today I’m continuing my series on building the perfect kitchen by talking about the different tools you’ll need.
You might have a lot of them, but I bet there are a couple pieces you don’t have. The idea is not to have a ton of gadgets (MED principles still apply in your kitchen) but to have a collection of the best things for your purposes.
This short list of tools will allow you to make a good 90% of everything you’ll see on this site or find in any cookbook.
Eggs: roughly 70 of the most awesome calories you can eat. Packed with healthy protein and fat, they’re a really easy way to get the 20g Tim recommends in the morning.
The problem is some people get tired of them. And if you’re like Laura, you wouldn’t miss anything if you never eat an egg again in your life!
With this post, I’m going to show you nine super tasty ways to prepare your eggs so that they’re not just the same old thing anymore. At the end, I’ll link you to some recipes that use them.
You’re tired of the same old thing, right? Yeah, I know Tim Ferriss told us we should eat the same things over and over, but we don’t have to listen. Here’s the thing, though: you don’t have to be a fancy chef to take something ordinary and make it exquisite. All you need are the right tools. The star of any “4 hour kitchen”, in my opinion, is going to be your spice rack (link to Amazon). Here’s the down low on the ones I think you need immediately.
Happy New Year SlowCarb-ers! I hope you everyone had a happy and healthy holiday season. I accomplished “happy” but “healthy” was not so successful. I spent the week in Queensland, Australia camping with friends at the Woodford Folk Festival, one of Australia’s most popular music festivals (don’t be too jealous all of you in the [...]
