Living low carb is tasty, and easy to prepare at home
Here is a great example of a fantastic low-carb dinner for two that you can make for around $25.
It consists of filet mignon, baked cauliflower and creamed spinach.
- Step 1 – One giant cauliflower (any supermarket will do): Carefully snap the heads of cauliflower, and try to make the pieces as similarly sized as possible (for uniformity while they cook). Dump in bowl, and coat with olive oil and season to taste (we used salt, pepper, garlic and cayenne pepper). Massage in the oil and spices, then arrange on a single layer baking sheet. Cook at high temperature (400 degrees or higher), and bake till they brown evenly – turning maybe once or twice. As it browns darker (caramelizes), you get a sweeter taste, so cook to your preference.
- Step 2 – Creamed Spinach (any frozen variety): Boil in bag until hot. So easy a caveman can do it.
- Step 3 – Filet Mignon (from Truglio’s Meat Market): Get a cast iron skillet nice & hot. Season your steak to taste (salt & pepper usually good enough). Cook in liberal amounts BUTTER for about 4 minutes per side, then tent in foil until you’re ready to eat.
Ahhhh, low carb living rocks!
