|Those are all good suggestions. For desserts, I prefer Swerve sugar substitute. It’s interchangeable in recipes 1:1 and does not have an aftertaste that usually comes with other sugar substitutes. Also 85% Shcmerlings chocolate officially has 0 net carbs. |
Those are good alternatives if you can tolerate sugar alcohols. For me they all cause an insulin spike.
The only true 0 carb food is fat.

|As far as a Friday and Shabbat Meal Plan
This is what I do
I try to keep a ketogenic lifestyle
In the am I have a large cup of hot water
2 TBSP butter
I prepare my water bottle and sip on it all day
70oz water with ice
2 TBSP Apple cider vinegar
1 tsp pink Himalayan salt
1 tsp magnesium
1 tsp Potassium
1st meal whenever I’m hungry
3-4 egg yolks scrambled in lots of butter
Tuna and egg salad with lots of homemade mayo
Cheese crisps- melted cheese made crunchy in the microwave with homemade guacamole.
Basically the fattiest protein available, extra fat, low carb veg.
2nd meal, FRIDAY, IF IM HUNGRY
the same as above
OR a piece of salmon, dark chicken with skin, steak, flanken, any fatty protein, olive oil or mayo for dipping and a portion of Shabbat veg.
Pesto salmon or Sesame mustard salmon
with homemade mayo or spicy mayo (hot sauce).
Salads: I eat a little bit, make it more for guests
Roasted mini peppers
Heart of palm
If you let me know which salads you like I can help you find a low carb alternativa
Roast, flanken, OR a fatty nice piece of beef, lamb or veal
2 low carb veg
roasted sesame broccoli
roasted cauliflower with zaatar
string beans with roasted garlic
kugel cauliflower, broccoli, spinach,
If I have guests I’ll make rice just for them or a few roasted potatoes
There are 3 go to desserts I make, but you can google and get recipes
Between carpool Pesach blondies
Cooking with Tantrums coconut milk mousse
You can also make fat bombs
I substitute the sugar for stevia. It works well in these 3 recipes.
For the chocolate chips I chunk up UNSWEETENED baking chocolate (very bitter)
I don’t usually eat dessert but sometimes you need a little something, Shabbat afternoon.
Shabbat lunch is the same as dinner.
I try to mix and match from above.
You’ll find that once you get use to eating
Fatty protein, extra fat, low carb veg that your appetite gets smaller and you don’t crave sweets
If you let me know Foods you can’t be without, I can try to help you adjust them to fit a low carb lifestyle.
