Experiment Your Way to Thin: Turnips instead of potatoes.

Are you missing your French fries or mashed potatoes?  Here are some good substitutes that I absolutely love.  I do suggest that when making any of these recipes you count the net carbs in all the ingredients you use.  This way you will know exactly the net carbs of what you are eating.

You can experiment with any of these recipes, taking out what you don’t like, or adding your own seasoning.  Enjoy !

Remember, when doing the Atkins diet there is always a substitute for your favorite foods.  There is no need to starve or deprive yourself of anything, you need only be bold, creative, and experiment your way to thin.

Do you have any favorite food substitutes that you would like to share?
