View Comments

Hi everyone!

We are in the third week of our “Low-Carb, High Flavor Challenge”, and this week I have the low-carb version of some really good dishes and a new delicious and elegant entrée to introduce to you guys.

Recipe and Grocery List – Week 3

MondaySeared Scallops with Pinot Grigio, Butter, and Pine Nuts

For 2 servings, you will need:

Tuesday - White Wine, Paprika, and Rosemary Marinated Pork Tenderloin

For 4 servings, you will need:

WednesdaySteak Lulu (no gnocchi, use spaghetti squash instead)

For 6 servings, you will need:

Notes:

By replacing the gnocchi by spaghetti squash you will save a lot of calories and carbohydrates. The original recipe has 543 calories and 30 grams of carbs per portion; the version with spaghetti squash has 398 calories and only 7.2 grams of carbs per portion.

Thursday - Layered Shrimp with Cream Cheese and Herbed Tomatoes (with no bread)

For 6 servings, you will need:

Notes:

By removing the bread and replacing the cream cheese by its fat free version you will cut the calories from 322 down to 260 per portion; and the carbohydrates from 16 grams to 8.4 grams.

Friday - Pineapple, and Roasted Red Bell Pepper Crusted Chicken (no Panko bread crumbs)

For 4 servings, you will need:

Notes:

You don’t have to necessarily use fat free cream cheese in this recipe, unless your goal is also to cut down calories.  So by replacing the original cream cheese by the fat free version and by removing the Panko bread crumbs from the recipe, you cut the calories down to 194 and the carbohydrates to 7.7 grams per portion. The original recipe has 297 calories and 13 grams of carbs per portion.
