Low-Carb Conversations
Low-Carb Conversations features conversations with co-hosts Leah Williamson, Kara Halderman and a variety of voices in the Low-Carb, Paleo and Real Food movements, expressing many different points of view.

Laura Dolson from lowcarbdiets.about.com and Sam Gaucher from canadagirleatspaleo.com are our guests this week on Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore and Friends!

While Jimmy is off at PaleoFX and finishing up his writing project, Cassie and Kevin were lucky enough to be joined by yet another canuck, Sam Gaucher  of Canada Girl Eats Paleo, and the very wise and insightful Laura Dolson, who maintains the About.com section on Low-Carb eating.

We had a lot to talk about!

Gina Reig's Creative Curry Clafouti

(As we discussed during the show, it is pronounced "cla-FOO-tie," and it's kind of like a quiche. It keeps well and is super yummy!)

Ingredients:

• 6 eggs
• 6 tablespoons melted grass-fed butter/ghee/coconut oil cooled to room temp. + 1 pat for greasing pan
• 3/4 cup coconut milk
• 4 cups cooked, chopped chicken (optional) You can sub any cooked meat and/or greens, onions, etc.
• 2 tablespoons curry spice, or to taste
• Sea Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions:

• Preheat oven to 400° F.
• Butter a 10” round or 13×9” baking dish
• Whisk together eggs, fat & coconut milk until frothy.
• Mix in chicken or other meats/veggies and spices and pour into baking dish.
• Bake about 45 minutes or until top is golden brown and puffy.

Gina elaborates:

"BE CREATIVE WITH THIS! YOU COULD USE HERBS INSTEAD OF SPICES. THE EGGS, COCONUT MILK, SEA SALT AND FAT ARE THE NEEDED COMPONENTS. FROM THERE, YOU CAN BE SUPER CREATIVE!"
