Hey, you guys, have we forgotten Chris' suggestion about recipes?  Please add your own.  wink Ok, here's what I did for dinner tonight.  I "breaded" skinless/boneless chicken breast strips with egg and grated parmesan cheese, then sauted them in olive oil.  I made a tomato sauce in a skillet with onion slices, garlic, oregano, basil and a small can of tomato sauce and put some on the bottom of a glass baking dish, placed the chicken on top and then put the rest of the tomato sauce on, then topped everything off with provolone slices.  The rest of the family ate this with spaghetti but I chose to place my chicken piece with the sauce on top of shedded lettuce.  Yes, that's right, lettuce, and it was really satisfying.  The lettuce mixed up really well with the sauce.  Along with this I had small raw broccoli florets and cucumber slices on the table to munch along with dinner because I didn't make a salad.  Well, I mean, I already had LETTUCE on my plate!  In the past, I made zucchini noodles for a dish like this.  For those who missed that thread:  peel a zucchini down lengthwise around and around for the "noodles" and saute them very lightly.  They can take the place of noodles in any dish.  Note: when I "bread" anything now, I use egg and parmesan cheese, or egg and a combo of the cheese and almond flour.

Sometimes when I MUST have breading I use oatmeal run thru the blender till it kind of looks like whole wheat flour... but I guess it's whole oat flour. It works well, has a nice nutty taste and oatmeal is the only carb that they really want us to use. Doesn't seem to drive up my numbers too much and makes me feel as though I'm getting away with something. turn

my husband was dx'd like 3 months ago and his doctor told him no ketchup or cooked tomatoes...which he really misses.   But, this receipe uses tomatoe sause so is that okay opposed to everything else that is tomatoe?

chili, when I eat this dish, I don't eat a lot of the tomato sauce.  Since the rest of the family also eats it, I make the Chicken Parmesan sauce as one normally would but I don't use breading for the chicken pieces.  As I described, I use grated parmesan cheese in place of the breading.  It's true that if you eat a lot of tomatoes, you'd be getting a lot of carbs and that's particularly so when you have sauce since it's concentrated with tomatoes.  (Ketchup also has sugar which is why it's not good for us - but, a spoon of ketchup isn't sinful if the rest of the meal is low-carb.  It's when someone dumps a LOT of ketchup on food, that it can mess up the blood sugar.)  When I serve myself of the chicken, I will have whatever sauce is on it (with the melted cheese) but I don't scoop up extra sauce.
