Bored with your Low Carb Diet?

To those who are bored with low-carb fare, may I gently suggest getting out of your rut with some different styles of cooking.

Bacon-wrapped shrimp and salad of mustard and turnip greens, cucumber, bell peppers, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Prep time: about 20 minutes.

Roast beef in wine sauce with green beans and roasted peppers and mushrooms. Hands-on prep time: under half an hour.

These recipes are adapted from Firecracker Shrimp and Filletto di Bue alla Contadina in More Cooking Secrets of the CIA (Culinary Institute of America). The trout and pork chop recipes are among many other outstanding dishes in the book. It's only $4 on Amazon.
