Faithful followers of low carbohydrate diets tend to eat an increased quantity of meat, chicken, fish and eggs. They also eat a quantity of vegetables daily along with a free ration of salads and a small quantity of nuts.
The problem with a low carbohydrate, low sugar but high fat and protein diet is that the foods become boring after while. Dieting is usually derailed through becoming bored; tired of eating the same old recipes each day, based on salads, salads and more salads.
The low carbohydrate version usually advocates the introduction of fried meats which makes it a little more palatable but still some innovation would not go amiss, especially when it comes to producing tasty accompaniments to an otherwise uninteresting plate of food.
A low speed juicer can produce nut butters; herb butters and juices that feature all the vegetables allowed on the free list. Use herb butters to melt over steak or fish to produce a completely different flavour. Try using the juicer to produce meatballs blended with garlic, herbs and mushrooms. Mix some saffron and paprika to the recipe to inject some interesting flavors and colors.
Use some of the vegetables on your free list to produce chilled soup. And try making ‘faux mashed potato’ by mincing a raw cauliflower, shaping it into patties and then gently steaming it. Add herb butter for extra flavour – it sounds awful but is truly amazing. Minced cauliflower in also great with fish and you can make a superb white sauce with fresh cream, herbs and butter. Try grinding almonds and use them to thicken soups and stews instead of the usual flour which is not allowed.

Make a breakfast juice from free list vegetables and use it to accompany an omelette filled with a small amount of cheese or mushrooms or a combination of leftover vegetables. On such a breakfast even the hungriest of dieters would not be able to muster an appetite until lunchtime: the high protein acts as an appetite suppressant.
Make a thick paste with vegetables, including spinach, cauliflower, cabbage and broccoli and then mix the paste with minced fish. Add some chilli, ginger, pinch of ground almonds, lemongrass and garlic and shape into patties. Gently fry them in butter and you will have fantastic Thai fishcakes you can eat with – dare we mention it – salad!
To provide a burst of energy, juice some wheatgrass early in the day and drink it on an empty stomach. You do not need more than a small ‘shotglass’ of wheatgrass to make a noticeable difference to your energy levels and help reduce your appetite throughout the day.
Juicing is becoming an art form and there is no doubt that becoming an expert juicer provides excellent support for a low carbohydrate diet. Start with purchasing a good quality juicer and also introduce some healthy supplements to give your low carbohydrate diet some acceleration and spice up some tasty recipes.
If you are considering a healthier lifestyle, start with a single gear juicer. I recommend the Samson Juicer from Purely Juicers. If you prefer a twin gear juicer try the Omega Juicer
