I avoid the products marketed as "low-carb" just on principle. If the carbs are low, they're still full of other stuff I'd prefer not to have. As someone else mentioned, just eat real food!
There's some good recipes out there. I have a book on cooking with coconut flour that's great! I do use a lot of frozen veggies. There's a misconception that fresh produce is better, but that's only if you know when it was harvested and the growing conditions. Commercially frozen veggies are sometimes processed right on the harvesting equipment, frozen as it's picked! Can't get fresher than that. It's my impression (accurate or not?) that there are lots of street markets where you can get good locally grown and recently harvested produce that you could portion out and freeze. Yes, more of a chore...but you'd still have the convenience of pulling out a frozen bag at mealtimes.
Low carb products may have low carb counts, but the carbs they do have may come from grain or other frankenfoods that I'd just as soon pass on. Take a nice drive out to the country and find someone raising animals and produce that would provide a much healthier alternative!
...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
