Why say "meatless"? Just say tofu or whatever that stuff is.

This is very helpful, I've started the Charles Clark, and I've had to cut out fruits and any bulky carb veggies, including flour, grains etc.

It's a challenge, and pricey as we seem to go through a lot of vegetables as I've gotten the whole family on it, (3 of us) but hopefully it's working!
Thanks for the tips.

I bought a juicer with my Christmas money and am using it every morning. My apple/carrot combination for breakfast gives me a super helping of vitamins and energy. It does get a little expensive, but our health is SO worth it

Have you seen the Arnold's Way website? http://www.arnoldsway.com/ The green smoothies information is wonderful, and so are the YouTubes!

Hi - you could try baba ghanouj which is similarly yummy but eggplant based. See http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/1

Buying those books would be my biggest tip to anyone, particularly if you're wanting to do a 20g carb induction phase as a vegetarian.

I second that, Overlord. Rose Elliot's books have made a low carb diet not only possible but also enjoyable for me. As an LC vegetarian I have learned SO much more about diet generally.

Default Hey! There's a thread for ME

Nobody in the Newbies area told me there was a vegetarian thread on this forum. Hurray! So happy. And Rose Elliot was my introduction to possibly doing low carb while staying a vegetarian. Great cookbook! Although I do wish some of her measurements made more sense for an American audience.

And I do NOT recommend her chocolate muffins if you make them with Stevia. Horrible after taste.

I wish I had found this thread sooner. I've been feeling a bit like a freak over on the newbie thread.

Default Stevia problem. Help!

I have found Rose Elliot's book really useful too. I used to hate tofu but she has one or two good recipes with it which I use regularly. I tend to avoid cakes, except when I am doing a LOT of exercise but I bought a shedload of stevia powder for my breakfasts (I live in Spain and it's not easy to get here) and I have given up on it. I find it has a very bitter taste whatever I do with it. The problem is getting the dose right. Mostly I use sweetener for my porridge. I do a carb-cycling diet, so it's eggs, mushrooms and spinach one day and porridge the next for breakfast. Any help with how to get the dose of stevia right would be VERY welcome, because this stuff is not cheap!

Default I avoid Stevia mostly

I just use it for my tea sometimes or sprinkle it on oatmeal. I can't stand the after-taste. I do think the trick is to use as little as possible. If I overdose it, then it is awful. So always go light. I used it in the chocolate muffin recipe in Elliot's book and I overdid the Stevia.

Generally I just don't make baked goods anymore, but I think if I do, I'll use sugar and just watch my in-take.

I love her baked-egg pizza recipe! That was majorly tasty and it really did have the flavors of pizza.

Have you tried her bread recipes? Just wondering.

Natural stevia does have a bitter, liquorice taste. The only brand that doesn't have an aftertaste is NuNaturals. It comes in carb free powder form or liquid. It really does make a difference for baking or making desserts. You can buy it on-line from iherb which ship obroad.

I know this is a very old thread, but thanks for keeping it here. I happened on this by accident, as I was getting a little overwhelmed with what I can and can"t eat. I have to follow a vegan type lc diet due to health concerns

My body will not allow me to eat animal products at all without consequences in the form of debilitating pain. I was eating meat and dairy but can't anymore. I've been getting my protein in the form of nuts and seeds and nut butters and soy. I have some black soy beans in the slow cooker as we speak.

I guess I was trying to see what other vegan type protein sources were out there

Anybody home? It doesn't look like there are any people visiting this forum. I am a lacto - ova vegetarian and have started low carb to curb my appetite and pull the reins on my weight gain. This has been good for me. I look forward to hearing from other vegie low carbers.
