I’ve been working on this list for many months. The hard part is knowing where to start and end. There are so many low carb alternatives available, whether it is genuinely good ingredient alternatives, low carb versions of your favorite recipes, commercially available low carb items (check out netrition.com) or low carb mixes for food such as bread, sauces, cookies etc (LC Foods is particularly good for this!).
So here are the absolutely essential low carb hacks that I think every low carber should know:
Bread – make cloud bread
Breadcrumbs – use crushed pork rinds (like in this pork tenderloin recipe!) or ground almonds
Chili – just ditch the beans!
Chips – make homemade tortilla chips
Cornstarch – experiment with a little xanthan gum
Crackers – substitute cucumber slices, flaxseed crackers or pork rinds
Flour – try coconut flour or ground almonds
Mashed potatoes – use mashed cauliflower
Milk – depending on the usage, try plain unsweetened almond milk, or mixing heavy cream and water together
Onions – use onion powder
Rice – make cauliflower rice
The above hacks are quite generic but VERY useful. But here’s a list of low carb versions of specific dishes and condiments:
