We've got some good news for you coming up next Friday, February 28, 2014. Our host Jimmy Moore will come out of hibernation from writing his book Keto Clarity: Unleash The Health Benefits Of The Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet to be a part of the epic, CAN'T MISS Episode 100 we have planned for you. He and Dietitian Cassie have quite the entertaining and surprising show to share with you and you're just gonna have to tune in next week to find out what the fuss is all about. But we promise it will be totally worth your while with an all-star line-up of more than a dozen guest friends who will be here to help us celebrate this momentous occasion in "Low-Carb Conversations" history.

This week, Dietitian Cassie invited a nutritionist and dietitian-in-the-making named Christin Grettenberger from the "Detective Dietitian" blog to join her as guest co-host. They journey through the latest health headlines with two amazing guest friends, Mary Shenouda from "The Paleo Chef" blog and Megan Opel from the "Peaches & Cake" blog.

Before getting to their guest friends, Cassie and Aglaee chat about the article Why Are So Many Dietitians Critical Of The Low-Carbohydrate Diets? by another fellow RD named Franziska Spritzler.

Cassie and Aglaee are joined by a sensational pair of guest friends in husband-wife team Kyle and Julia Visser. Kyle Visser is a professional basketball player living and playing in his 5th season of the New Yorker Phanthoms team in Germany. His wife Julia is the founder of "Jules' Fuel" dedicated to sharing the benefits of real food, fitness, travel, and purpose in life, including how she convinced Kyle to give a Paleo-styled nutritional approach a try. Listen in as Cassie, Aglaee, Kyle, and Julia give their take on the latest health headlines, including the 9 foods an athlete would never eat, the Coca-Cola ad that was banned in the UK for being misleading, the negative implications of consuming gluten on brain health (explained well in the YouTube video "The Truth About Gluten"), how exercise can be used therapeutically to minimize stress in your life, and a wonderful TEDx Youth talk by Dr. Katherine Reid called "UnBlind My Mind: What Are We Eating?" Plus, don't miss Julia sharing two of her sensational recipes--3-Layered Paleo Shepherd’s Pie and Easy Egg McNothin’.

Paleo bloggers Juli Bauer and Julia Colling join our host Dietitian Cassie along with guest co-host and fellow registered dietitian Laura Schoenfeld today in Episode 97 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"

 

It's been over three months since our last episode of "Low-Carb Conversations" and we've so missed being here with you discussing and dissecting all the latest health headlines. Jimmy Moore is away writing his next book coming on August 5, 2014 entitled Keto Clarity: Unleash The Health Benefits Of The Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet that is sure to follow in the bestselling footsteps of his 2013 release Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? (the audiobook version will be available within the next few weeks). Just as we did while Jimmy was away last year with his book, we'll be featuring some guest co-hosts filling the chair with Dietitian Cassie over the next few months (except for our epic Episode 100 that you won't want to miss coming up on Friday, February 28, 2014--MORE DETAILS ON THAT SOON!).

Don't forget we are a listener-supported podcast and rely on your donations to keep the episodes coming throughout 2014. We're incredibly thankful for the support of our enthusiastic fans and would be honored to have you join that group who provides us a financial donation if you benefit from this podcast. CLICK HERE for a quick and easy way to send $1, $5, $20 or even $100 towards the costs of making the magic of "Low-Carb Conversations" happen on a weekly basis. THANK YOU FOR YOU SUPPORT!

With Jimmy away, Cassie invited on one of her fellow RDs to join her in today's episode in the amazing Laura Schoenfeld from the "Ancestralize Me" blog and a staff nutritionist at ChrisKresser.com. She and Cassie chatted about this blog post from Laura explaining the flaws in that U.S. News & World Report ranking of diets that released last month as well as a SheKnows news story that quoted Cassie responding to what U.S. News considers a "healthy" diet. When you get two real food RDs this riled up, it must be an important topic of discussion!

Cassie and Laura are joined by two incredible guest friends in Juli Bauer from the "PaleOMG" blog and author of the cookbook OMG. That's Paleo? and Julia Visser from "Jules' Fuel." This fabulous female foursome had a great time sharing their opinions about some recent health headlines, including four reasons why you shouldn't go on a low-carb diet, more commentary on the U.S. News & World Report 2014 diet rankings, the critical role saturated fat should play within the context of a healthy diet, the World Health Organization (WHO) deciding to pull back the curtain on the health impact of sugar, seven practical ways to begin reducing the amount of carbohydrate in your diet, and so much more! Plus, everyone's favorite segment with delicious new low-carb recipes is back at the end of today's show. I know it's been a while, but you know what to do--pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk about it!

Today is our final episode of 2013 for this fun-filled, opinion-driven look at all the latest health headlines of the day. We've seen some truly incredible shifts beginning to happen in the media coverage of topics like saturated fat, cholesterol, calories, low-carb and Paleo diets, and all the other popular topics you've come to expect from this show.

AUDIO

Have you ever caught yourself watching a television show, reading a news story online or hearing an ad on the radio that just make you want to scream to the top of your lungs? That's kinda what we do here on this podcast every Friday when we take on all the latest health headlines out there making news--and making us mad! Yes, it can be quite maddening at times hearing the constant vilification of saturated fat, the heavy promotion of whole grains as healthy and an over-obsession on calories having any real meaning in the discussion of nutrition. But that's why "Low-Carb Conversations" is here to serve you each and every week. We have two amazing co-hosts who really know their stuff and combine their collective wisdom on diet and healthy living with two influential members of the online health community to share educated opinions about what all these things mean. Challenging those headlines that don't seem quite right and highlighting the good ones that do is the magic that makes this show happen. We'd love to keep doing this for you throughout 2014, so CLICK HERE if you would like to make a contribution towards keeping us on the air. THANK YOU FOR YOU SUPPORT!

Self-described "nutrition nerd" Brian Klein and cyclical ketogenic diet blogger Naomi Most join our co-hosts Dietitian Cassie and Jimmy Moore today in Episode 94 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"

 

Where else can you hear educated opinions that match what you believe about the health headlines of the day than on this podcast? If you're like most of us in the low-carb community, it probably drives you nuts when you see a crazy headline claiming that low-carb, high-fat diets are killing you because you're living proof that this is simply not true. In fact, it could be argued that you are a million times healthier now than you were before you started low-carb, Paleo, primal and real food living. This is why we think "Low-Carb Conversations" is so important to stay on the air to directly challenge the negative headlines and to shine a light on those headlines that are showing how this message is penetrating into our culture. If you want to see this show continue to take on the conventional wisdom of the day, then CLICK HERE to financially support the work we are doing. THANK YOU FOR YOU SUPPORT!

Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie are stoked to have two more fabulous guest friends from the low-carb blogging world joining them today in Singapore-based low-carb, high-fat fan Ilona Kasza from the "Big Fat Blog" and 22-year old real food-based low-carber and college student David Pickholtz from the "My Low Carb College Kitchen" blog. Listen in at the beginning as this foursome take on a brand new "Secret Headline" feature that Jimmy and Cassie decided to start doing each week to get a spontaneous reaction from their guest friends. This is the graphic that got the conversation going--Dr. Oz's 500-Calorie Fast Food Meals:


Dr. Oz's 500-Calorie Fast Food Meals

You're not going to want to miss the response to this! Listen in as Jimmy, Cassie, Ilona and David opine on the health headlines, including how researchers try to extrapolate information about high-fat diets on humans from a study on mice, the absurdity of a new research study claiming offering donuts as an incentive for exercising is a good thing, why the interpretation of what constitutes a "quality" diet is important when the subject is pancreatic cancer, whether sugar should have a warning label attached to it or not, new research showing drinking coffee and cutting carbohydrates in your diet can reduce endometrial cancer, the rising online doctor visit trend for cost savings, and so much more! We always have a great time on this show, so pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk about it!

Paleo, gluten-free, low-carb blogger Carol Lovett and professional chef and health blogger Camille Macres join our co-hosts Dietitian Cassie and Jimmy Moore today in Episode 90 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"

It just feels right having this show back on the air again over the past few weeks dissecting all the latest health headlines out there in the mainstream world to see what kind of messages they are communicating with an unsuspecting public. Yes, we are the great exception to the rule when it comes to reading through the typical editorializing that goes on even in the midst of reporting on scientific studies on diet and health. Make no mistake about it, conventional wisdom on these subjects still rules the day--but we're getting closer and closer to making the messages we communicate on this podcast a part of the debate of ideas...and that's exciting stuff! We need podcasts like "Low-Carb Conversations" to solidify in the minds of listeners what to think about these critical issues that are important to attaining a healthy lifestyle so that they can keep sharing this alternative information to the people within their circle of friends and family who need to hear it the most.

No matter how much you know and believe in the concepts of healthy low-carb, Paleo living, it's nice to have a place of solace, encouragement and reinforcement to help you in this journey. If you'd like to see that continue, then won't you consider making a donation to help us continue to provide a weekly critical look at the health headlines that dominate our modern-day culture. We've been incredibly grateful for the support that so many of you have given us in the past couple of months, but we have tens of thousands more listeners who could help us keep going strong in the months and years to come if most of you shared a very modest donation as little as $5 to carry on. If you like the show and want to keep hearing more of it, isn't it worth a small seed of investment now to reap big dividends in changed lives down the road? CLICK HERE if you want to help us make that dream a reality. THANK YOU FOR YOU SUPPORT!

Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie are thrilled to welcome in a dynamic couple of beautiful peeps to join them in the studio today (it's "Jimmy and the babes"!), including Paleo, gluten-free, low-carb blogger Carol Lovett from the "Ditch The Wheat" blog (author of the Paleo-friendly e-cookbook Indulge: 70 Grain-Free Desserts) as well as professional chef and health blogger Camille Macres from the "Recipe Rx" blog (author of the creatively-titled Paleogasm: 150 Grain, Dairy and Sugar-free Recipes That Will Leave You Totally Satisfied and Begging for More). Listen in as they take on some fascinating health topics, including the sudden rise in Type 2 diabetes that has hit 114 million people in the (rice-loving!) country of China, a confused health advocacy specialist on the subject of carbohydrates, a critical blog post of Paleo, low-carb and primal living with specific digs at Mark Sisson and several others from the ancestral community, a recent paper published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that calls for an end to the diet debates (wishful thinking!), a mainstream column knocking the health halo off of smoothies and fruit juice (FINALLY!), the absurdity of the cholesterol-lowering food products that are marketed to consumers these days, and so much more! This is a fun episode today that we KNOW you're gonna love, so pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

CAMILLE'S BLAT OMELET WITH GARLIC AIOLI RECIPE

Serves 2

BLAT, if you’re not familiar, stands for BACON-LETTUCE-AVOCADO-TOMATO, and is typically an upgrade to the famous BLT sandwich. Here’s my take using eggs, glorious eggs! This is the best low-carb breakfast on the block.

6 eggs
1/4 cup chopped green onions
Butter, for cooking eggs
6 slices applewood smoked bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled
2 avocados, diced small
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Spike or other seasoned salt
1 cup arugula
2 tablespoons Balsamic Reduction (Trader Joe’s and some other markets carry a Balsamic Glaze if you want to skip this step)

Heat a 9-10 inch skillet on medium-high heat. Add about a teaspoon of butter. Whisk eggs in a medium bowl. Add half of the eggs to the hot pan and sprinkle with green onion, salt, and pepper. Turn to low and cover, allowing the steam to cook the top of the egg. You can get crazy and try to flip it, but you risk breaking it. Toss avocado, tomatoes, and arugula with lemon and seasoned salt. When top cooked, remove from pan and add bacon, and salad. Fold over, slice in half, drizzle with balsamic glaze and serve with a dollop of aioli.

As you know, we are a listener-supported podcast and really do rely on the donations of listeners just like YOU to continue bringing you this weekly excursion into offering up opinions on what's making news in the world of nutrition and health. WE NEED YOU and appreciate anything you can do to financially support the work we are doing.

If you are a fan of "Low-Carb Conversations" and would like to see it continue to air, then won't you consider making a donation? We are perhaps providing one of the few places where you hear a voice of reason in the insanity that is the subject of health in 2013! CLICK HERE to be a beacon of light to those who are still stuck in the darkness of conventional wisdom regarding diet and living healthy.

and Roland Denzel from the "Eat Well Move Well" podcast. Tune in to hear this foursome share their thoughts on the recent dust-up regarding the use of Kerrygold butter, whether our pursuit for 100% perfection in Paleo products is wise or not, the practicality lessons learned from the release of the world's first hamburger made in a lab, whether junk food is the answer to obesity, why processed foods will almost always never be healthy, the introduction of egg white options on the menu at the fast food chain Sonic, why some school districts have chosen to opt out of the government-mandated "healthy" school lunch program and more!

Health blogger and medical school student Kris Gunnars and corporate registered dietitian Paul Krieger join our co-hosts Dietitian Cassie and Jimmy Moore today in this special cholesterol-focused Episode 87 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"

It's been a little while since we've been on the air, but we're back with a bang today here on "Low-Carb Conversations" celebrating the long-awaited release of Jimmy's brand new book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? (also available in Kindle e-book) with a special edition of the show dedicated solely to health headlines that deal with the subject of cholesterol. And in addition to our fabulous co-hosts Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie, we are pleased to welcome two highly-qualified guests to take on such a complex topic--returning guest friend and medical school student Kris Gunnars from the "Authority Nutrition" blog and registered dietitian Paul Kriegler from "Lifetime WeightLoss." Listen to them take on these cholesterol health headlines along with Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie, including why cholesterol and saturated fat are not the enemy, the role of statin medications in the treatment of cholesterol, the shocking information about cholesterol communicated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in a 2013 pamphlet, the new knowledge we have about cholesterol, former President George W. Bush's recent blocked artery story, Paul's column on the real deal on lipids, Kris' column on cholesterol and nutrition myths that pervade our culture and more!

THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!! While a lot of people are loving the weekly look at the health headlines of the day from a real food, low-carb, Paleo outlook we provide on this podcast, the reality is we're not getting the financial support we need to keep this show on the air as often as we'd like.

Weight loss and health blogger Justin "Dez" Dessonville and registered dietitian/real foodie Mary Trenda join our co-hosts Dietitian Cassie and Jimmy Moore today in Episode 86 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"

AUDIO

After taking off last week for the Independence Day holiday, we're back today with what could quite possibly be our final episode of "Low-Carb Conversations." Because we are a listener-supported show, we need the donations of listeners like YOU to help keep it going. While a lot of people are loving the weekly look at the health headlines of the day from a real food, low-carb, Paleo outlook we provide on this podcast, the reality is we're not getting the financial support we need to keep this show on the air as often as we'd like. To that end, we'll be taking the next few weeks off to see if interest begins to pick up enough for us to return to the air in August. If not, then this will sadly be the final episode. Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie DEFINITELY want the show to stay alive and continue providing a sane voice of reason in response to the absurdity that tends to happen with health headlines. CLICK HERE if you want to keep hearing "Low-Carb Conversations" in the months and years to come! Your donation of ANY amount is greatly appreciated.

Today we are pleased to welcome an inspiring weight loss success story in Justin Dessonville from the "I Am Dez" blog and registered dietitian and real food advocate Mary Trenda from the "Considering You" blog to chime in with Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie on the various headlines making news in the world of health, including what's behind the new proclamation from the so-called health "experts" that omega-6-rich vegetable oils are healthy, why triglycerides are a much bigger deal than total cholesterol in heart disease, a closer look at why carbohydrates are a culprit in disease, a new study showing the Atkins diet produces the best long-term weight loss success, how marketing foods as "healthy" has actually led to even more obesity and disease, the paradoxical use of high-fat foods in an effective weight loss plan, a public health professor's one-week low-carb diet experiment and so much more! Now it's time (perhaps for the final time) to pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

Laura's Sauced Pork Chops
Over medium-high heat, place pork chops seasoned with salt and pepper in skillet and cook about 4 minutes each side depending on thickness. Make sure skillet is hot so you can get a good sear. When they're mostly done, remove and cover or put in warm oven.

De-glaze the pan with chicken stock, bone broth, or white wine and scrape up all the bits at the bottom of the pan. Reduce to a simmer and whisk about 1 1/2-2 Tbs of Dijon mustard into about 1/3 cup of heavy cream and then dump that into the pan. The sauce will thicken up in a minute or two and just pour it on top of the meat and steamed veggies.

Welcome back as our special low-carb friends Jessica Kempf of the Budget For Health blog and returning friend Eric "That Nice Boy Dana Carpender Married" Schmitz of mytotalgymtransformation.com  join co-hosts Dietitian Cassie and Kevin Kennedy-Spaien.

While Jimmy is still toiling in the salt mines, dictating his latest book to a staff of specially trained ninja scribes in Kathmandu, we're holding down the fort here on the Virtual Porch. Our special guests this week help us talk about such scintillating subjects as:

  • Why you don't need to be rich or snobby to eat well
  • Why you may not be able to instagram your next dining experience
  • How to make your own full-fat yogurt
  • What the heck "eating clean" may or may not mean
  • Bacorn, Kale chips and much, MUCH more!

Please note that Kevin was viciously attacked by his microphone this week. As a result that mic had to be put to sleep. He hopes to sound better  for episode 72!

Welcome back for another fantastic episode of Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore and Friends! Today is special for a few reasons: First, Jimmy's not here- he's taking a break to write a new book. Second, It's our special 70th episode. Woot!

Of course it is also special because of our great guests Adam Kosloff and Mark Spurbeck who are joining Dietitian Cassie and guest-host Kevin Kennedy-Spaien today. Adam is the author of Beyond Caloriegate and the voice of the Escape From Caloriegate podcast and Mark is one of Minneapolis' most prestigious personal trainers through his company Fit Twin Cities.

You can learn all about both of them at:
Adam Kosloff's Caloriegate, and
Mark Spurbeck's Fit Twin Cities

Today's recipe is Adam's dad's pot roast from their book, The 12 Essential Low Carb Cooking Skills: Plus, 49 Simple, Scrumptious Low Carb Diet Recipes.

Pot Roast (Serves 4 to 6)

Pot roast is a good simple one-pot meal that requires a minimum of fussing. Like any braise, it takes some time to prepare. It is easily prepared in a slow cooker. (Follow manufacturer's directions for cooking time and temperature.) This recipe is very basic, but fail-safe.

Ingredients:
1 (3 to 4 lb.) pot roast (chuck, top or bottom round)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can chopped tomatoes
2 cups beef stock
2 onions, coarsely chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
3 large carrots, peeled and cut on the bias into 1" pieces
2 celery stalks, chopped
4 ounce cremini mushrooms, quartered
1 tablespoon herbs de province
2 bay leaves
Kosher salt and pepper
Chopped flat-leaf parsley, for garnish

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Season the meat on all sides with salt and pepper. In a Dutch oven, brown the meat on all sides in the extra virgin olive oil. Add the tomatoes, the onions, the herbs de province, the bay leaves and the rest of the veggies. Make sure all the herbs and veggies are immersed in the liquid. Bring back to a boil. Tightly cover the pot and place it in the oven. Roast for about 3 hours, or until the meat is tender. When done, remove the pot from the oven. Remove the meat and allow it to rest on a cutting board. If the jus is too thin, return the pot to the stove top and boil to reduce it. The jus should be thin but well-flavored. Correct the seasoning. Slice the meat and serve accompanied by the veggies and jus, garnished with parsley, or, you can serve a few chunks of the beef atop some pureed veggies with a bit of the jus over top and garnished with the parsley (yum!).

Your two congenial and lovable co-hosts Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie are in their rightful places ready to tackle the latest health headlines of the day. This podcast is one of the most unique in the low-carb and Paleo communities because you get to hear real opinions from real people living this lifestyle sharing the real deal about the nutrition and health ideas of our day.

We've got two more awesome guest friends from the Paleo and low-carb blogging community joining us today as we welcome Sam Feltham from "Smash The Fat" and Jennifer Courtney from the "PaleoMomRx" blog. Listen in as Jimmy and Cassie talk about what foods RDs would eat and wouldn't eat, how so many people are diagnosing their health online these day and how listening to health podcasts can actually lead you to lose more weight than those who don't. Then they invite in Sam and Jennifer to address how a medical doctor gets it all wrong about high-fat, low-carb diets, the absurdity of the new Coke anti-obesity ads focusing on calories, whether "fat genes" determine whether you'll become obese or not, the viability of BMI for measuring obesity, the negative effect of carbohydrates on the brain and the fact that there is 30% more sugar in cereals sold in the UK than in the US. And then our favorite part of the show is the recipe and cooking tips time at the end with Sam and Jennifer featuring a chicken fajita dish. Now you know what to do: pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

LOW CARB CHICKEN FAJITAS
INGREDIENTS
▪ 1 medium chicken breast
▪ 1 lettuce
▪ 2 tomatoes
▪ 1 red pepper
▪ 1 birdseye chilli
▪ 1 small red onion
▪ ½ avocado1 lime
▪ 1 tablespoon of olive oil
DIRECTIONS
Cut 1 tomato, ½ red pepper, birdseye chilli and red onion to make a salsa. Spoon out the avocado and chop up the other tomato, mix those together, squeeze the lime in and mash it up to make a guacamole.
Slice the other ½ of the red pepper and chicken into strips. Fry them in the olive oil. Once cooked put on a separate plate. Now comes the low carb bit. You'll be using the lettuce leaves as tortillas to make the fajitas. With a leaf in hand spread on some salsa, guacamole and place some fried chicken peppers on top. Roll it up and eat it up, but be careful  as I have had salsa juice run down my top on a couple of occasions!

Today we present to you our final podcast of 2012 in Episode 65 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends! Co-hosts Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie along with their two guest friends chime in with more opinions on the latest and greatest health headlines to give their unique low-carb perspective on them. We're taking the next two months off from the podcast but will come back refreshed and ready to roll again with lots of new low-carb and Paleo bloggers in the new year. We are a LISTENER-SUPPORTED podcast and appreciate all the fantastic donations that so many of you have provided us. If you enjoy what you hear on "Low-Carb Conversations" and want to help us out, then you can make a donation to keep us on the air in 2013.

We're loaded with an awesome hour-long conversation for you today as Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie welcome two new low-carb podcasters with opinions to spare. They are Kelly McCausey from the "Low Carb Mom" blog and Lynn Terry from the "Traveling Low Carb" blog who are the co-hosts of a brand new podcast called the "90 Day Low Carb Challenge." Listen in as we talk about some dubious "signs" you'll live to be 100 years old, vegan Dr. Joel Fuhrman's nonsensical nutritional advice for being healthy, whether beans are a good option for controlling diabetes, how new research shows moderate weight loss does very little to lower heart disease risk in people with diabetes, whether heavy statin drug use can actually lead to greater vascular calcification and whether obsessing over your exercise routine is doing more harm than good.

We've got another great show to share with you today in Episode 64 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends! Your congenial co-hosts Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie stand ready to lead the conversation challenging the latest health headlines that are permeating our culture. There's a lot of garbage information being put out there that real people are unfortunately believing is true which is why we are privileged to bring you this show week after week. If you appreciate the service we are providing with this podcast, then don't forget we are LISTENER-SUPPORTED and rely on YOU our listeners to keep it on the air. If you enjoy what you hear on "Low-Carb Conversations" and want to help us out, then you can make a donation so we can keep pumping out information that takes on the conventional wisdom that pervades diet, fitness and health. THANKS so much for your amazing support!

We've got a fantastic show for you today as Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie welcome to the Virtual Porch a wonderful husband-wife team to share their opinions about the health headlines. They are Louise Hendon from the "Ancestral Chef" blog and her husband Jeremy Hendon from the "Simple Health" blog who are the owners of two excellent businesses to help Paleo and low-carb enthusiasts alike: Louise's Foods and Paleo Living Magazine. Listen in to get their take on why they believe gluten-free eating is a big deal backed by science and personal experience, why the battle against wheat is justified, whether a Harvard study explaining Atkins diet weight regain is valid or not, a "bad science" research example claiming countries that eat the most chocolate win the most Nobel prizes (yeah right!), reasons why the severely obese category is growing at a lightning pace, how not getting enough sleep is detrimental not just to your body but also your fat cells, Dr. Andrew Weil's new focus on carbohydrate density, and Chris Kresser's recent column dismissing the fears over the nutrate and nutrite concerns of bacon. And Louise has a scrumptious, mouthwatering recipe for you to try in your own kitchen at the end of today's show. We can't wait to have you join in on the conversation today, so pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

We’ve got a fabulous show in store for you in Episode 49 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends with our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Mindy Noxon Iannotti rockin’ it with two more fabulous low-carb friends. If you missed the BIG NEWS last week that we’ve decided to go to a LISTENER-SUPPORTED format with this podcast, then I wanted to invite you to make a donation to help keep this show on the air. We were blown away by the outpouring of love and financial support after making this announcement last week and we are so grateful to each and every one of our incredible listeners who have told us how much this podcast means to them. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for helping us continue providing new episodes of “Low-Carb Conversations” and we’ve got another spectacular hour-long episode to share with you today!

We feature a Philadelphia, PA-based Paleo fitness expert named Roger Dickerman(who Jimmy met at PaleoFX in March) from Relentless Fitness and the Senior Nutritionist at the UK-based low-carb GoLower company Emily Maguire who works with the incredible low-carb advocate Hannah Sutter who Jimmy has interviewed previously on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” Listen in as our prestigious panel chimes in on the recent sugary soda ban in New York City, a new study that says being obese doesn’t necessarily mean you have heart health risks, a history lesson on how highly-processed omega-6-rich vegetable oils replaced natural animal fats, whether too much Vitamin D can be as problematic as too little, and the notion that once you’ve been fat people will always look at you as being fat. It’s a full slate of interesting topics for you today, so sit back, relax and enjoy the conversation!

NOTE: Apologies for the “rumble” during this podcast. We had a poor Skype connection with one of our guests. THANK YOU for your understanding!

We're so happy to be back at it again in Episode 48 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends with our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and the prodigal child Mindy Noxon Iannotti back in her rightful place on the show after being gone since March. And we've also got some MAJOR changes to tell you about with the podcast. You'll immediately notice we no longer have any sponsorship ads at the beginning of the podcast. That's because beginning right now, we are totally listener-supported. Yep, we are focused on bringing a show dedicated to you, for you and about your healthy low-carb lifestyle. If you like what you hear, then we'd appreciate your financial support to help us keep this show on the air. We appreciate all of our faithful listeners and encourage you to make your contributions so we can keep the fun going: DONATE HERE!

In this special extended one-hour show (let us know if you like the longer episode or not), we feature a husband-wife team named Tom Nikkola and Vanessa Romero who joined us on the recent May 2012 Low-Carb Cruise. We were so impressed with them that we just knew they had to be on the podcast to talk about the health headlines of the day. Tom is the Director of Nutrition & Weight Management at Lifetime Fitness and his wife Vanessa blogs at "Healthy Living How To." Listen to their inspiring stories of low-carb success and then as they opine with Jimmy and Mindy about whether exercise is harmful, if exercise is equal to diet in terms of diabetes management, the idea that there's no such thing as cardio exercise, a new study proclaiming low-carb diets are good for the kidneys and if Dr. Atkins is to blame for confusion over carbs. Plus, don't miss Vanessa's mouthwatering melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate coconut cups recipe at the end. Get ready for a fun ride in today's super-sized, but oh-so-healthy episode of "Low-Carb Conversations!"

It's a fun-frolicking good time rock and roll today in Episode 45 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends featuring Jimmy's PaleoFX friends Darryl Edwards and Ashley Tudor! He met these two health superstars in person last month when he attended the PaleoFX conference in Austin, Texas and he decided to bring them on to comment on some recent health headlines that are sure to be conversation starters. Our lovely co-host Mindy is again out getting better from her recent surgery but that doesn't stop us from dishing out opinions on some pretty outrageous news items as of late including that asinine red meat will kill you study, Jimmy's 2009 blog post about these kind of red meat studies that still applies today, and and 7 million pounds of ammonia-treated "pink slime" meat (this brings a whole new meaning to the term "mystery meat") purchased by the government to be served in school lunches starting this Fall. Oh yeah, we had a lot to say about this stuff! Plus, don't miss the best part of the show when we share some incredible recipes that are quick and easy for your healthy low-carb. So sit back, relax and enjoy the show. Pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk.

Asian Infused Lettuce Wraps by Lydia Shatney
http://divinehealthfromtheinsideout.com/2010/08/asian-infused-lettuce-wraps/

 

1 pound grass fed ground beef

1/4 pound of grass fed liver, pureed (optional)

1 head of leaf lettuce, bibb or butter lettuce

3 cloves garlic minced

1 tablespoon grated ginger

1 lime, juiced and zested

1 teaspoon red chili paste, or more to taste

2-3 scallions, minced

1/4 cup minced cilantro

splash of rice wine vinegar

splash of naturally fermented gluten free tamari or shoyu (soy sauce)

salt to taste

Heat a skillet with a bit of bacon grease or lard. Add the ground beef and cook on medium. Add the garlic, ginger, zest and lime juice, scallion, cilantro, chili paste, rice wine vinegar and soy sauce. Stir well until the meat is cooked through.

Remove from heat and place in a serving bowl. Rinse the head of lettuce and dry well. Place the clean leaves individually on a plate. Serve alongside the meat – scoop meat onto lettuce and wrap, roll or fold and enjoy!! These were such a success with my kids that I think these will have to stand in once in awhile instead of regular tacos on taco night!!

Paleo Chewy Granola Bars by Sarah Ballantyne (aka The Paleo Mom)

Ingredients:
1 ½ cups slivered almonds
2 cups finely shredded unsweetened coconut
1/3 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/3 cup raw pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds)
1 Tbsp sesame seeds
½ cup blanched almond flour
1/3 cup extra virgin coconut oil, melted
¼ cup unsweetened, natural almond butter (or Peanut)
¼ cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
¾ tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp ground flax seed
1½ Tbsp water
¾ cup mini chocolate chips or your favorite chopped dried fruit (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 325F. Grease a 9”x13” baking pan with coconut oil.

2. Mix ground flax seed with water and let sit for 3-4 minutes.

3. Pulse pepitas in a food processor a couple of times to break up to the size of sunflower seeds.

4. Add coconut oil, almond butter, honey and vanilla to flax goop and mix well.

5. Add almond flour and baking soda and stir to combine.

6. Add slivered almonds, shredded coconut, pepitas, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and chocolate chips or dried fruit. Stir to combine.

7. Spoon batter into prepared baking pan. Spread out and flatten well with your hand or the back of a spatula.

8. Bake for 22-23 minutes, until golden brown. They will puff up slightly while baking, so immediately after removing from the oven, flatten the bars with the back of a spatula (or something else heat resistant and flat).

9. Let cool completely in pan before cutting into bars (I actually like to refrigerate before cutting). Cut into bars (I usually get 18-20) and wrap individual bars in plastic wrap for easy travel (optional). I prefer to store these in the refrigerator.

Bomb Diggity Bison Chili by Joey Cardillo

o 1 TBS raw certified organic extra virgin coconut oil
o Around 2 lbs of ground bison (but you can use other meat if desired)
o 1 organic onion (chopped up). We like to use white onion.
o 2 cups organic celery (chopped up)
o 2-3 cloves of organic garlic

o 1 jar of salsa (about a 12 ounce jar will work) or simply make your own. We like
pretty hot stuff so we use the spicy ones! Mild is cool also: just do what you like
best.
o Diced organic tomatoes, canned are ok but fresh are obviously better.
o 2 ½ tsp organic cumin
o 2-3 tsp organic chili powder
o 1-2 tsp organic thyme leaves
o 2 tsp Himalayan sea salt
o 1/2 cups organic green chiles

Sauté the onions, celery and garlic on low-medium heat for about 5 min. After
these are done sautéing, add the meat, chili powder, thyme and cumin (stir it up
for about 5 minutes so it all mixes up). Next pour your salsa in, add the tomatoes
and salt. Next come the green chiles. Let all of this simmer for at least an hour.

Make sure all ingredients are certified organic and meat is pasture-raised, grassfed organic. This stuff is bomb!

It’s another fabulous day for chatting about healthy low-carb living with our friends Mark Jeacoma and Tina Langston in Episode 398 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends! Our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Mindy Noxon Iannotti packed in the conversation with their guest friends today discussing Paula Deen’s recent announcement that she has Type 2 diabetes, the misinformation that has been spread around out there about what causes diabetes (NEWSFLASH: it’s NOT the butter!), the New York Times column “The Fat Trap” by Tara Parker-Pope that says attempting weight loss is futile and Gary Taubes’ response to that column adding back in a bit of reality to the discussion. Plus, don’t miss our recipes at the end for delicious low-carb crackers and muffins made with flaxseeds! So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk about it on the Virtual Porch gabbing away about the health headlines of the day from the low-carb perspective.

Recipe:

Flaxseed Crackers from Tina Langston

A great high fiber, crunchy, nutritious, and tasty snack. Good with dips, spreads, or plain.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Ingredients:
• 1 cup flax seed meal
• 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
• 1 and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup water
Preparation:
Heat oven to 400 F.

1) Mix all ingredients together.

2) Spoon onto sheet pan which is covered with a silicone mat or greased parchment paper.

3) Cover the mixture with a piece of parchment or waxed paper. Even out the mixture to about 1/8 inch. I find a straight edge, like a ruler, works well, though you can use a rolling pin or wine bottle too. The important thing is not to let it be too thin around the edges or that part will overcook before the center firms up. So after you spread it out, remove the paper and go around the edges with your finger and push the thin part inwards to even it up.

4) Bake until the center is no longer soft, about 15-18 minutes. If it starts to get more than a little brown around the edges, remove from oven. Let cool completely – it will continue to crisp up.

5) Break into pieces.

The whole recipe is 6 grams of effective carbohydrate plus 35 grams of fiber.

Flaxseed Muffins from Tina Langston

3 eggs
1/4 cup vanilla davinci’s
1/4 cup cooking oil plus 2 T.
2T. water
2T. Cinnamon (amount is correct)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup golden flaxmeal

Beat eggs and other wet ingredients well. Add dry, mix to combine. Let the batter sit for about 5 mins. Spoon into 12 greased muffin tins, bake @ 350- for 12ish minutes… I overbake mine slightly… they are almost crunch when they first come out but then soften up a little bit – I eat these over a course of like 4-5 days so I dont like them to turn to total mush. I make these as mini muffins and freeze them as I would not want anyone eating the whole lot over a few days. Drink plenty of water when eating items made with flaxmeal.

Sugar-free, super simple, key lime mousse by Ash Sierra

1 small soft ripe avocado (about 9 Tablespoons)
1/2 juice of a lime (or -- if you can -- use a key lime)
3 tablespoons coconut milk from native forest (in can, they don't use BPA)
pinch of salt
1 dropper vanilla stevia extract (I use the Now brand glyercine based)
5 Tablespoons coconut oil

Toss everything except coconut oil in a blender (I use a magic bullet type thing for this) and blend!
Heat coconut oil to liquid, add, and blend!

Finito! Be careful, you may eat the whole thing! If you put it in the fridge it will get much more solid....
Be creative, add 2 tablespoons of cashew or mac nut butter for extra richness, make a creamcheese topping..
I love to add some ground flax (not presoaked to avoid toxins!) it gives the mouse a built in crust taste
enjoy!

Dutch oven fail safe beef roast recipe by Whitney Ross

Ingredients:

Beef roast

Broth (I use my home made beef broth, but I have used mushroom or vegetable)

2 Bay leaves

3 -5 cloves Garlic

1 Onion

Seasoning (I like Penzy's beef roast seasoning, 8th Wonder, Herbamare or just garlic powder, salt and pepper)

Rendered lard, coconut oil, avacado oil, bacon fat

Instructions

Pre heat oven to 350

Heat oil in the dutch oven on medium high. (I have this dutch oven Costco Dutch oven but I wish I had this one Dream one )I use about 1/3 to 1/4 inch of oil.

Season the beef which has been brought to room temperature by taking it out of the fridge for 15 minutes to an hour. (not totally important)

brown the meat 4 minutes per side

Turn the heat off, add the onion, bay leaves, garlic and broth. The broth should just cover the meat, there can be some meat sticking out of the top of the broth, but not a lot.

Cover the pot and put it in the oven for 3 hours.

Primal meatballs by Whitney Ross

Ingredients for 25-30 meatballs

3 lbs of grass fed ground beef
3 eggs (farm fresh egg yolks for AIP)
3 C pulverized, cooked cauliflower (7 minutes in the microwave to cook it, no water stir halfway through)
1/2C parsley
3-6 cloves garlic chopped or pressed
1TBS salt
pepper to taste
1C raisins (omit for strict AIP, include if you are eating some sugar or some fruit)
1C grated parmesan (omit for AIP or find grass-fed, top quality cheese)
1/2 inch of oil in the pan to fry, bacon fat or olive oil or coconut oil

Mix all the ingredients together except the oil and then make 1 meat ball and fry it in hot oil with the temperature on medium - medium low in the pan. Brown it on all sides, about 2 minutes each side. Try that meatball and see if you need to add anything to the mixture like more salt. We cook these in a really large stainless saute pan and cook them in batches of 6. Don't crowd the pan or they will not brown properly. Don't mix the meat and ingredients too much or it won't stay together in a ball.

Recipes:

LC Cocoa by Alyssa Palomares

INGREDIENTS
-6 - 8 oz. boiling water
-1 tbsp cocoa powder
-2 tbsp sweetener of your choice (I use Stevia in the Raw)
-2 tbsp softened extra virgin coconut oil OR 2 - 3 tbsp cream
-1/4 tsp vanilla extract
-Dash of salt

OPTIONAL:
-Whipped cream, for garnish
-1/4 tsp each cinnamon and cayenne pepper (WARNING: texture is a bit gritty if you add these; not sure how to get around it)

INSTRUCTIONS:
At the bottom of your mug, mix together the dry ingredients. Add the coconut oil or cream and stir into a paste. Add enough boiling water to cover the paste, and stir before adding remaining water. If desired, top with whipped cream.
It is VERY important that you do not pour all the water into the mug at once, otherwise it won't mix neatly.

Brownie Recipe adapted from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrfnNdylTlA

Single-serving LC Brownie by Alyssa Palomares

I should note that this recipe was intended for a toaster oven, but it can be adapted for a regular oven. The original recipe was supposed to be microwaved, but that might dry out the brownie. The texture is more like a cake instead of an authentic brownie, but I'm not sure how to fix that. Some people might consider it dull by itself, so feel free to give it a frosting, mix in some chocolate chips, put low carb ice cream on top - whatever you like!

I wanted to give measurements for making multiple servings, but I'm not sure how that would affect the cooking time. I did increase the measurements to make two brownies once, but I don't remember how much I had to adjust the time or if I had to. Sorry if this is inconvenient! I know how inefficient it might be to heat up a regular oven for just one brownie.

INGREDIENTS

-3 tbsp butter OR coconut oil, softened - or you can use a mixture of both!
-1 egg
-3 tbsp coffee (black or with cream - instant is fine)
-1 tbsp cocoa
-2 tbsp coconut flour
-2 tbsp sweetener of choice (feel free to adjust to your liking)
-1/4 tsp vanilla extract
-Dash of salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a bowl, mix butter/coconut oil with the sweetener thoroughly. Add egg, and beat. Alternate between adding the coconut flour and coffee (in that order), 1 tbsp at a time. Add cocoa powder and vanilla extract, and mix thoroughly. Pour batter into a ramekin and put in the oven for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Alternatively, you can scoop the batter onto a cookie pan lined with aluminum foil to make pancakes. It might also work if you put the batter in a skillet, but I haven't tried that.

Tossed Spice Chicken Thighs by Hunter Copeland


I'm  in favor of folks eating more fish as well as red meats, but this is an easy chicken recipe that my family seemed to like and I thought I would share.

Ingredients:

1 pound of chicken thighs (works w/ chicken legs)

dried rosemary

sea salt

black pepper

garlic powder

paprika

melted butter or coconut oil

Preparation:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Pat the chicken legs dry. Brush with either melted butter or coconut oil and sprinkle with each spice. You may vary them depending on your taste preferences.  We have tried it with different spices and diffeent amounts.  It is good regardless. Sage and rosemary work well.  Bake the chicken in a shallow baking dish and when you notice liquid flowing from it, baste the droppings back over the top of the chicken.  Also,this recipes isn't as good with breast meat.  Use the fattier chicken parts -thighs or legs.

Recipes:

SPINACH LASAGNA

1 pound ground beef

2 tablespoons onion, chopped

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 cup spaghetti sauce

8 ounces cream cheese

1 egg

1/8 teaspoon pepper

10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed & drained

4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded

2 tablespoons parmesan cheese (I used the kind in a can)

Brown the hamburger with the onion; drain off the fat. Mix in the

garlic powder and spaghetti sauce; season to taste and heat until

bubbly. Meanwhile, soften the cream cheese in a medium-size

microwaveable bowl for about 40-60 seconds. Stir until creamy; beat in

the egg and pepper with a spoon until well mixed. Blend in the

spinach. Spread half of the meat mixture evenly in the bottom of a

greased, 8 x 8″ glass baking pan. Spread the spinach mixture over the

meat; top with the mozzarella, then the rest of the meat. It may not

completely cover the top, but that’s ok. Sprinkle with the parmesan

cheese. Bake at 350º about 30 minutes until hot and bubbly. Or, cover

with plastic wrap and vent one corner then microwave on HIGH for 3

minutes; then reduce to MEDIUM and cook for another 7-10 minutes until

hot and bubbly. Let stand 3 minutes before serving.

Recipes:

Bryan's Pro-Biotic Ginger Bug, a recipe that is super simple and can heal / restore health!

Ingredients
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons grated ginger root (skin and all).
1 cup of spring or filtered water (not straight tap water).
Stir these ingredients in a cup (mason jar is best).

Every day or 2 add the same amount of ginger and sugar (and water as necessary).

This will start to bubble, then you know it's active and consuming the sugar.
You just pour a bit (spoonful) of the liquid into a glass of your drinking water, or any cool beverage really.

You'll be consuming just a tiny fraction of a teaspoon of sugar, but you're getting a healthy dose of probiotics.

Amazing!

This liquid can be used for many many purposes. Even making your own ginger ale (or ginger beer as it is called).

Pizza Peppers by Lynn Weiler

4 large 8 inch banana peppers..washed,topped, cut lengthwise and seeded.
Lay them on a foil lined cookie sheet and fill with your favoritw pizza sausage...it takes about a pound
Bake them at about 350 for a half an hour or until they are cooked through and browned on top

While that is baking, saute some coconut oil or butter in a pan with about a pound of sliced mushrooms and 8 diced roma tomatoes. Add 1.2 t basil and a pinch of oregano, salt and pepper, or what ever spices you love on pizza.

When the peppers some out of the over, put two on a plate, spoon the tomato mixture on top and then cover with parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese.
I stuck them back in the warm oven for a couple minutes and wow...I will never miss a pizza crust again.

Mousse au Chocolat Recipe

Mousse au chocolat is a traditional French dessert. I have seen U.S. recipes (like Alton Brown's version) that are nothing like a real French mousse. And guess what? A real French mousse au chocolat is also a fairly low carb treat. Now, this is not a low carb recipe blog, but since I am in Belgium, where I can easily buy 70% or more dark chocolate (which is lower in sugar and high in cocoa butter), I will post one anyway.

The recipe below uses 70% dark chocolate Belgian chocolate (see nutritional information) but you can also make it with 86% dark Belgian chocolate (see nutritional information).  Ghiradelli also sells dark chocolate, if you cannot easily find dark Belgian chocolate. But it and other brands (e.g., Lindt) have soy lecithin in it. Whatever brand of dark chocolate you use, make sure cocoa butter is listed on the label. It is found only in high quality chocolate.

Ingredients:
100 grams (3.52 ounces) of dark chocolate (this recipe assumes 70% dark Belgian chocolate)
1 tablespoon butter
2 eggs

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over water that is simmering, but not boiling. Add butter to the melted chocolate. Note: good Belgian chocolate has a lower melting point than U.S. chocolate and the melted mixture should not be too hot, so it won't cook the egg yolks.

Separate the two eggs. Beat the egg yolks then mix them into the melted chocolate until it is smooth, and without lumps.

Whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whites into the chocolate mixture.

Divide into three dishes and refrigerate for three or more hours. Each mousse will have about seven net grams of carbs per serving.

I usually consume fewer than 30 grams of carbs per day, so this would be about a fourth of my daily total. Therefore I would not recommend eating it very often, but it is a nice way to occasionally treat yourself to some dark chocolate, which is high in healthy cocoa butter.

Shrimp Cocktail Sauce

Take 6 to 8 ripe, medium sized tomatoes. Peel and seed the tomatoes.
Pulse the tomatoes in your food processor (but do not puree; leave chunks).
Add 1/4 cup pure horseradish (or perhaps a bit more, if you like more bite to your sauce)
Salt and pepper to taste.  
Juice from 1/4 lemon
1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce (optional).

Then stir it all together. Makes about one cup of cocktail sauce for your cold, boiled shrimp. Without using processed and carb-laden ketchup.

We discovered that it tastes better if it has had a while for the flavors to mix, so prepare some a few hours before you need it. And we sometimes needed to put the sauce on the shrimp with a spoon, but it was really good. It also avoided the necessity of making cocktail sauce with ketchup.

Recipe:

Makes 2-3 normal servings or 1 post-WOD serving

All ingredients are from Trader Joe’s, but any store will do

Ingredients:

1 lb grass-fed ground beef

2 tbsp coconut oil (not from TJs, but you can find it at Whole Foods or onlinehere

1 jar Tomatillo and Roasted Yellow Chili Salsa

3 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp salt

dash of oregano

1 spaghetti squash

Directions:

Poke a number of holes into the spaghetti squash with a fork to release pressure while cooking. Put the squash in the microwave for 15 minutes, rotating every 3.

At the same time, brown the ground beef on medium in a skillet with 3 tbsp of coconut oil. When the beef is halfway done, add the cumin, pepper, salt and oregano. Finish browning the beef, turn the heat to low, and add the jar of salsa. Let this simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes until it thickens.

When the spaghetti squash is done, remove it from the microwave (carefully, it will be hot). Slice off the end caps and cut in half length wise. With a fork, remove the seeds and fibers from the center. Again with a fork, scrape the remaining squash into a new container. Here, you can choose to continue cooking the squash in the microwave with additional oil for 15 more minutes, or pan fry it. The consistency should be soft with a slight crunch to it.

When done, the beef can be served on the bed of squash or mixed together, either hot or cold.

Low Carb BBQ Brisket Prepared in a Smoker and Cooked Twice

 

Since this recipe is nothing but meat (and rub) it is low carb.  I use an electric smoker to get the smoke flavor and also to produce a flavorful “bark” (blackened outside surface) that provides a great deal of flavor.  Since briskets come in 8 to 12 lb. sizes, this makes enough meat for several meals.   Portions can be easily frozen for use later on.

 

 

 

Low Carb BBQ Brisket Recipe, Double-Cooked in a Smoker
5.0 from 1 reviews
Print
Recipe type: Entree
Author: Joe Lindley
Prep time: 30 mins
Cook time: 27 hours
Total time: 27 hours 30 mins
Serves: 12
Low Carb BBQ Brisket (Smoked Beef Brisket) prepared in a Smoker and double-cooked to provide tasty Burnt Ends. This recipe provides tender sliced BBQ beef and chopped BBQ beef.
A smoker is used in this example, however an oven or roaster oven can be used with liquid smoke to obtain the smoky flavor. The oven approach won’t provide as much of the “bark” outer surface characteristic of smoked beef.
Ingredients
  • 8-12 lb. Beef Brisket with the “fat cap” (see Notes) (Select or Choice Grade)
  • Dry Rub (Gordons Grub Rub)
  • Optional Spices for Chopped Brisket (be careful to just spice lightly to punch it up):
  • Coarse Pepper
  • Coarse Sea Salt
  • Onion Flakes
  • Dried Tomatoes (Sprinkles – in a ground form)
  • Cayenne Pepper
Instructions
  1. Set Smoker to 225 Degrees
  2. Wash the brisket with water and dry off
  3. Rub in the dry rub on all surfaces of the Brisket, especially the fat side
  4. Put the Brisket into the Smoker (fat side up) and leave for 1.25 hr. per lb. (i.e. 12.5 hr for a 10 lb brisket)
  5. Remove the Brisket from the smoker and remove the “flat” (Video 2) for refrigeration/freezing and use later.
  6. Immediately wrap the “fat cap” in aluminum foil (two or three layers – Video 2)
  7. Put the fat cap back into the smoker for another 1.25 hr. per lb. (i.e. 12.5 hr for 10 lb brisket)
  8. Remove the fat cap from the smoker, remove meat from it (see video), and chop it up.
  9. Combine all of the chopped fat cap (burnt ends) with some of the flat (chopped) and spice very lightly with the optional spices of your choice to produce chopped BBQ beef.
  10. A suggestion is to save half of the flat for slicing and use as a more formal sliced BBQ entree.
  11. The chopped BBQ from this is spicy enough that, to serve as an entree, it can just be sprinkled with olive oil, reheated in a microwave, and served as is.

Notes

Check the “trim” of the brisket: Sometimes the fat on both sides is completely trimmed off, which is NOT what you want. You want a brisket that has one lean side with the fat trimmed off (called the flat) and one fatty side that has fat over the entire length of the brisket. On the fatty side there should be a thick knot of fat at one end, sometimes intermingled with meat, called the “fat cap”.

Plan ahead: The brisket will be in the smoker for a long time – two long stretches. You don’t want to end up messing with it in the middle of the night. For briskets, 2 hours or so of smoke is about right, so after you’ve finished the smoke phase, you may, if you prefer, transfer the brisket to a preheated oven or roaster oven for the remainder of the cook time, wrapped in aluminum foil in a deep pan to catch the juices.

Debbie Hubbs and Monique Forslund join Jimmy and Mindy (and Christine) for the last of our segments from the 2011 Low-Carb Cruise!

We've got some great recipes today, including a mock Pita for sandwich wraps courtesey of Monique (get the directions here: http://www.lifezone.se/en/food-tips/moniques-very-popular-egg-wraps-3061144) and Debbies crowd pleasin' tongue teasin' Oopsie Rolls which can be made as hamburger buns/deli rolls or as desserts!

Recipe:

Oopsie Rolls

4 eggs (at room temperature)
4 oz cream cheese
1/8 tsp cream of tartar (optional, won't affect the recipe if not used)
1 level scoop vanilla whey protein powder (to give it more of a “bread” texture)

1. Separate eggs into 2 bowls; use glass or grease free metal for the egg whites.

2. Beat the egg whites & cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.

3. In 2nd bowl, beat yolks together with cream cheese and protein powder.  If you want your oopsie for dessert – add splenda or cinnamon or cocoa powder.  Or add garlic powder, pepper, cheese, etc for a more savory oopsie.  Or leave plain.

4. Carefully and slowly fold the yolk mixture into the egg whites.

5. Spray cookie sheet, or muffin top pan with a non-stick cooking spray.  Drop mixture onto cookie sheet or muffin top pan.

6. Bake in a 300 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes .

Cool completely before storing. To store, layer between sheets of parchment paper, wax paper or non-stick foil.  Place in a gallon baggie in the refrigerator leaving the baggie open overnight which causes them to dry out a bit which makes them more of the consistency of bread.  Can freeze.  OK to double or triple recipe.
 
Makes about 10-12 small rolls.
