Some Hidden Low Carb Recipes That Should See the Light of Day

When I started low carb in 2003, was the place I hung out. Recently, a commenter mentioned a chef named Karen Barnaby who had a low carb cookbook.

The name rang a bell.

I went to, and – yes! – the same woman – a chef at The Fish House in Vancouver, Canada had, maybe a half-dozen years ago, posted a number of recipes. The site – and these recipes – are not easy to find as the site, while still active, has not really been updated in a loooong time. Don’t let the look of the site, nor the fact that there is a petition from 2008 fool you – the site is still active and a great resource.

I’ll bet these great-looking recipes are pretty hard to find if you don’t know where to look, however. Let’s see if I can help out.

The list is lifted directly from the site, but I’m not going to copy the recipes directly because, well, I think that would be wrong. I think I’ll be checking these out in the coming months.
