Life without carbs?

...would be just horrible. If I can't have bread, I don't want nobody, baby. But I must admit, I'm quite surprised to learn that a couple of weeks without my yeasty friends aren't so awful. Planning meals that contain no "bad" carbs is not only easy, but thoroughly enjoyable as it stirred up some creative juices in me. The food has been healthy and frankly, extremely satisfying. Although I am looking forward to a slice of crusty French baguette topped with some pâté in my near future, the last two weeks or so of low- carb eating has enlightened (and hopefully lightened!) me.

Example of a low carb meal from this past week: Bruschetta Halibut, Oyster and Crimini Mushrooms Sautéed with Garlic and White Wine and a green salad.

Bread who?

I've never met a carbohydrate I didn't like.

I'm not too sure about these low-carb diets.. I grew up in the belief that bread was an essential food for your body. Not to mention that I just can't stand the thought of depriving myself from the crispy crust of French baguette or the buttery taste of fresh warm croissants.
Your meal looks good, though. Very tasty and delicate
