Tasty Low Carb Treats Cooking Video

Let Them Eat Fat!!!

 

"Fill 'em with fat, right off the bat!" When Terry and I decided to live a low-carb lifestyle, eight years ago, I went to a rather famous doctor in Portland, Oregon. She's a psychiatrist who, in addition to caring for children in her psychiatric practice, has a thriving practice helping low carbers understand the science that supports the low carb high fat diet. Her name is Dr. Ann Childers.

She was constantly telling me that she believes the epidemic of dementia, Parkinson's Disease and Alzheimer's is because our brains need fat and with the craze of low-fat products that have filled our world for the last 40 years, we've deprived our brains of the fat they need. (I'm paraphrasing her.)

I discovered early on with this way of eating that fat is the best food to stop craving and feeling hungry. If your kids are like mine were, they're hungry much of the time, and nothing seems to stop the little munchkins from rummaging around the kitchen like homeless guys in the park. Round and round they go pulling open cabinet, oven, pantry and freezer doors searching for something to eat. 

Low carb, high fat cooking can come to the rescue, because fat stays with your body and gives you the kind of energy that lasts.....through the snowball fights, sledding, ice skating, snowman making, skiing, snowboarding, you name it. I think you'll love this easy, healthy snack that's better than ice cream and it's guaranteed to shut up your craving for junk food! What happens is you gradually weanyourself off of sugar and processed junk foods, because your taste buds change. After being on a low carb, high fat diet for just a month, vegetables like cucumbers, tomatoes and broccoli began to have a sweet taste to them and berries taste like candy they're so sweet. Candy becomes disgustingly and spit-outably sweet!

In this video, I show you how to make a snack that'll stop the the whole family (including you) from craving junk food.

Baked Salmon Cooking Clip

In chapter five of “The Joy of Being Disorganized,” I talked about meeting Oprah and what fun it was to find out she was a self-confessed SHE (Sidetracked Home Executive)! It was a moment where a real life celebrity became just like you and me. Dining can be like that too. You don't have to eat at the tables of Paula Deen, Rachael Ray or Giada to savor gourmet tasting food.

You can make it yourself! In this cooking video I show you one of the easiest ways to bake salmon-- that heart healthy source of omega-3 fatty acids. Doctors call it “brain food” but I just call it delicious.

Throw in a sprig of rosemary (which always goes well with almost any fish) in and enjoy! Here's my simple recipe with video to follow.

Want to make a delicous, low-carb custard for dessert? The recipe is below.

When this yummy, custard dessert comes out of the oven, you’ll impress and delight your family your guests and you. AND this dessert is very low in carbs for dessert.

Empty Mayo Jar Salad Dressing

When you scoup all you can out of that mayonaise jar, did you know there's still enough left in the jar to be a creamy part of a salad dressing? All you have to do is add some yummy ingredients, put the lid back on and shake it! Voila-- you've just created a creamy, gourmet salad dressing good enough for a fancy five star restaurant. Who knows.....after you blend up this flavorful masterpiece you just might decide to open one!

And for the heck of it I'll toss in a LOW CARB white sauce that's delicious. Also, since I no longer eat sugar-laden catchup I make this instead.

If you don't believe me about the carbs, look at the back of a catchup bottle and read how many there are.

Yummy Low-Carb Burritos

Posted by Pam Young

Jul 28, 2017 5:00:00 AM

 

 

If you love Mexican food, but instantly think about all the carbs in most of it, you can un-carb any high carb dish, with minor replacements. 

Watch this video from my kitchen as I prepare burritos that'll take you right over the border in a low-carb way.

 

 

Olah! Oh, by the way, if you are serious about living a low carb lifestyle, I recommend Gary Taubes' book "Why We Get Fat and What We Can do About it." It was this science writer for the New York Times that completely changed my husband Terry's and my life. Subsequently I took two years to write "The Mouth Trap: the butt stops here!" Documenting my switch to a happy, healthy way to eat. Just click on the cover to learn more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love,

Kale Caesar!

Posted by Pam Young

Jul 14, 2017 6:00:00 AM

 

Come along with me to the market as I pick out something I used to be really scared of buying....kale! And if you think I was afraid to buy it, I was realIy afraid to cook it! Kale is one of those vegetables that looks pretty and scary at the same time when you don't know what to do with it. But it's a super food! Packed with vitamins and nutrients that can't be found in that chocolate bar you have up in the cupboard or under the bed (the House Fairy visits adults too!) So together in this video, I'll help you conquer the kale issue (if you have one) by making a classic Caesar salad with a twist and you won't believe how much you'll love it! Kale Caesar!

One of my all-time favorite low-carb cooking recipes is what I call “Cauliflower-oni and Cheese." Who needs that carb-loaded, slimy macaroni when you can cook up a yummy, steamy head of cauliflower and leave your pickiest eater drooling for more? In this fun, how-to cooking video, I share with you the secrets of happy cows from Ireland, and the joys of a forty year old pot. (The kind on the stove.) This is sumptuous, dining, and you'll want to make plenty for the crowds that will be begging for seconds and thirds and the recipe.

Homemade Chicken Salad (Video)

Posted by Pam Young

May 19, 2017 5:00:00 AM

 

 

When you buy a whole chicken and cut it up into parts, you end up with the chicken back, neck, rib cage and giblets. In a slow cooker, cook those remains in a quart of water for an hour, and remove to take all the meat off the bones. (It will yield about two cups of meat.) To make bone broth put the bones back in the broth that cooked for an hour and cook for up to 20 hours in a slow cooker.

That bone broth is filled with vitamins and minerals and  is great to have as a snack or used in soups and sauces calling for broth.

But you're here to watch my cooking video and get the Chicken Salad recipe so let's go!
