This is going to sound a little strange…. after much research I have finally found a low carb substitute to use in place of MANY things. I know, you’re all anxiously waiting on the edge of your seat to find out what this miracle ingredient is. I’ll tell you one thing, it’s nothing you’d ever expect. The one thing that you should always have in your house (to help make your low carb diet successful) is…… PORK RINDS!!
Crazy, right? They have zero carbs and virtually zero flavor, and they make for a great secret ingredient in some unexpected places.
Here’s just a few of the recipes we’ve tried using pork rinds–
Breading Chicken- Crush your pork rinds and use as you would use breadcrumbs on chicken
Meatloaf– Use in place of breadcrumbs
Pancakes– Yep, I said it, pancakes. It’s tough to get past the idea of eating pork rinds in your pancakes, but it’s actually quite yummy. I follow this recipe.
Pizza Crust– I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect low carb pizza crust, and I think this one may be it! I use this recipe
And there’s many more that I haven’t tried yet. Cheesecake crust, nachos, bread pudding, believe it or not the list goes on and on. Let me know what you’ve tried and how you like it!!
