30-Minute Easy Slow Carb Roast Chicken

Slow Carb Roast Chicken

This recipe is ridiculously simple and very tasty.  A perfect inaugural slow carb roast chicken for a bachelor or bachelorette new to cooking.  So easy and so well received that my friend’s non-cook boyfriend asked me to teach him to make it.  This dish is great served with green beans and roast veggies.

**Note: I like crispy, caramelized veggies so I will sometimes stir more often, but this isn’t necessary.

My Favorite Slow Carb Chili Recipe

Chili is often a staple for those of us on a Slow Carb Diet.  It’s family-friendly, party-friendly, super-easy, and by making a batch or two early in the week and portioning it out for lunches, you have your weekly meals planned.

While chili is a familiar food, everyone seems to have their own recipe.  Here’s mine – a bit more ingredients than most use, but I think it gives the chili a bit more depth than most chilis.

If you’re concerned about the cocoa powder, leave it out, but if you use pure baking cocoa with no added sugars or fillers, you’re actually getting yourself a mighty dose of antioxidants that shouldn’t cause your blood sugar to spike.

Slow Carb Steak – Pepper Crusted Beef Fillet

A properly cooked slow carb steak is a delight to your mouth!
This is a really simple but flavorful Slow Carb steak recipe.  The trick is in not overcooking the steak.   I prefer mine medium rare.

A nice cut of grass fed beef, properly cooked, doesn’t need a whole lot of extras to taste amazing.   A friend’s dad used to say that if a steak requires A1, it wasn’t cooked properly. I have a similar philosophy about coffee and cream…

Anyway, you can cook this in terms of how you like it done however you prefer, just watch for burning the outside if you like your inside well done. If you’ve never had a steak with just some salt and pepper, then you haven’t experienced what good meat really tastes like. Do let us know after you’ve tried it!

Mary F told me recently, “This is the first diet that I have not been hungry between meals or craved sweets. My husband is on it also, and we both have noticed an increase in our energy. He’s lost 5 lbs already. I haven’t lost any, but I’m trying not to get discouraged because this seems like a healthy way to eat.

Rich and Decadent Slow Carb Lamb Chops with Mushrooms and Herbs


This  great meal for a special occasion or entertaining when you want to pretend you aren’t on a diet, this recipe is “lick the plate” delicious.  Seriously, I’ve had guests ask me if it’d be rude for them to lick their plates!

I initially started making this recipe because I wanted to find a way to use all the fresh herbs I was growing on my balcony.  Fresh is always best and more flavorful, but you can certainly used dried as well.
