New to low carb eating, My first attempt actually turned out really well. Baked 70mins. came out a little under, no color change from psyllium, lots of little air pockets ,but still firm and a little dense. Held up well to firm butter and refrigerated almond butter. Cant wait to have toast or a sandwich. Thanks for doing all the hard trial & error work and keep the recipes coming.
Want perfectly uniform mini burger patties? Try using a lid from a small jar, or a cookie cutter, as a form for your ground beef. You’ll have to find one that is the right size (slightly larger than you want the burger to be once it is cooked) but once you have it you’re good to go. Line the lid with plastic wrap to keep the ground beef from sticking inside of it!

OMG! I can’t take it anymore! This recipe only works with Gluten. Marye says you cannot substitute anything for the gluten. If you do, then you are not making Marye’s recipe. If you are celiac, search for a different recipe because this one has gluten as an ingredient and you cannot have any gluten. Nobody is forcing any of you to cook this recipe. If you do not want to use gluten, look elsewhere. This clearly isn’t the recipe for you.

Make things yourself. While it’s extremely convenient to buy most things pre-made or pre-cooked, it always adds to the price per pound on items. Try prepping veggies ahead of time instead of buying pre-cut ones. Try making your stew meat from a chuck roast. Or, simply try to make your mayo and salad dressings at home. The simplest of things can work to cut down on your overall grocery shopping.


Non-GMO low-carb pastas are a good option if you're concerned about the potential effects on your health of consuming genetically altered ingredients. Though there are competing views in the scientific community with regard to the long-term safety of regular GMO consumption, many choose to eat only non-GMO products as an extra-cautious measure. Similarly, organic low-carb pastas that include ingredients that haven't been treated with or exposed to chemicals are easy to find.
