I have been Grain-Free since October after reading Dr. Gary Davis's book Wheat Belly. I really, honestly at this stage do not miss the grains and I highly recommend this book if you are doing any low carb diet. They are NOT what makes you feel full and satisfied, protein and fat are what does that. I used to make lots of casseroles, back in the day. But without rice or noodles, how so you make a casserole? You have to get creative! Here is a "Zucchini Noodle" casserole I enjoy making.
It starts by using this little Julienne Veggie Slicer I picked up at my grocery store. You can use it on anything, but with zucchini it makes perfect spaghetti-like noodles. It is like a regular vegetable peeler, but has a serrated edge on one side that does the trick.
I just love this new little tool! It will work well on eggplant, potatoes and daikon and other veggies too. Previously I have used a regular peeler to make wider zucchini noodles and love those recipes too! (See my grain-free Fauxccini Alfredo HERE and lasagna HERE). If you are counting sugar and carbs, the S/C Value will depend on what all you put in your casserole, your specific sauce and amount of zucchini. Mine turned out to be 8/2 for the entire casserole, I ate half of it and it was my whole dinner.
Just a quick note: I have updated my blog roll Great BFC Blogs and moved it to my right column. These are all great blogs dedicated to Jorge Cruise's Belly Fat Cure and Fast Track, and a few good Paleo sites. It lists the 10 most recent posts, so be sure and check out these sites! If you have a BFC Blog that I don't have listed, please leave a comment and let me know, I'd be happy to add your's too.
