Here are recipes for one week LOW CARB if you should choose to try it!!!
~ Shepherds Pie
4-6 pieces bacon, chopped
2 pounds ground beef
Small onion, chopped, 2.5 ounces
Salt and pepper
1/4 teaspoon toasted onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 egg, beaten
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
16 ounce package frozen green beans
16 ounce package frozen cauliflower
3 tablespoons butter, divided
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon chives, minced
In a large skillet, fry the bacon until crisp; drain well and set aside. In the same skillet, brown the hamburger and onion, seasoning with salt and pepper; drain the fat. In a 7 1/2 x 11 3/4" baking dish, mix the hamburger, bacon, onion and garlic powders. Check the seasoning for salt and adjust if needed, then stir in the beaten egg and half of the cheese. Spread over the bottom of a baking dish.
Meanwhile, in a medium pot, cook the green beans according to the package directions; drain well then return to the pot and stir in 1 tablespoon butter. Season to taste with salt. Spread the beans over the meat layer. In the same pot, cook the cauliflower 10-12 minutes until very tender; drain well. Put the cauliflower, 2 tablespoons butter and the sour cream in a food processor. Puree until smooth. Add the chives and pulse to blend. Adjust the seasoning, if necessary, then spread evenly over the green beans. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top. Bake at 350º for 35 minutes, until hot and bubbly.

Per Serving: 433 Calories; 31g Fat; 30g Protein; 8g Carbohydrate; 3g Dietary Fiber; 5g Net Carbs
1 chicken breast (or more for families)
1/2 c. canned mushrooms
garlic powder
onion flakes
parsley flakes
mozzarella cheese
Sprinkle desired amounts of each spice and mushrooms onto chicken in a covered baking dish. Add 1/2 c. water. Bake at 350 for 45 mins. Sprinkle on mozzarella and put uncovered back into oven. Turn oven off and let cheese melt... Don't open for 15 mins (let them juices redistribute )
Empty 1 envelope of taco seasoning, 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts & a jar of salsa in the crockpot, and cook on high(4-6 hrs.) or low(6-8 hrs.) Should be able to shred with a fork. Place meat mixture in tortillas(family) or ice burg lettuce(for you, low carb!) and top with your favorite toppings! So YUMMY !! we eat this once a week !!!!
14 1/2 ounces canned
tomatoes -- Hunts choice cut diced tomatoes
8 ounces tomato sauce -- Hunts
14 ounces beef broth -- Swanson's
14 ounces water
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 large yellow onion -- diced
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne -- to taste pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt -- add more later if needed
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground oregano -- or blended Italian seasoning
15 ounces black soybeans -- drained and rinsed, optional
How To Prepare: Preparation: In a large kettle, brown ground beef and onions, breaking up well, until cooked through. Drain all fat. Add spices and continue to cook and stir for a few minutes, then add the remaining ingredients. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for at least 30 minutes or until reduced slightly. Add beans, if using, in the last 10 minutes, just long enough to heat through. Black soy beans have a softer texture than pinto beans and will break down faster if cooked too long. Add water or more broth if necessary - sometimes it cooks down faster than anticipated.
Serve hot.
Bell Peppers, red or green (6 total -- 2 for chopping, 4 for stuffing)
1 LB Lean Ground Turkey or Ground/shredded Chicken (I like to shred my own)
Zuccinni (if you like) sliced into half moons
Onions (1) chopped
2-3 Jalapenos (chopped)
1 small bag of moister part skim mozarella cheese

How To:
1. Combine all of ingredients in a mixing bowl and hand mix. Include your choice of dry seasoning and sometimes a little red pepper.
2. Cut the tops off your 4 bell peppers for stuffing. Clean the insides out.
3. Stuff in your stuffing...
4. Put in your preheated oven (350) for about 30-45 minutes.. Depending on how long your oven cooks, if it is chicken I would say 45, and turkey about 30.
5. Sprinkle to top with a little cheese about 10 minutes before you take it out.
6. Serve

This starts out looking quite large when you press the meat into the pan, but it shrinks quite a bit. What I thought would make 6 servings, turned out to be closer to 4 servings. With all the meat and cheese, though, it is pretty filling. I might try using half Italian sausage and half ground beef sometime.
