We have a regular dinner guest who is on a no carb diet.

I do the usual grilled met, stews, goulash, kebabs, salad, sugared nuts (she gave me a box of sugar substitute). I found a recipe for 'sky bread' which is a sort of soufflé. I am looking for recipes for waffles, cookies, .... anything!

Stick to meats and cheeses, and maybe green vegetables and salad if they're interested. Season meats and use olive oil if the meat is too dry. Sometimes butter is good on a steak. For seasonings you can use Adobo, plain garlic powder or onion powder, fresh garlic or fresh onion, salt and pepper, or marinate in Kikkoman soy sauce. NOT LaChoy, because that one has corn syrup added. If in the mood for Italian, oregano on chicken is a unique scent and flavor.

Google paleo recipes. They often use almond flour (ground up almonds also called almond meal) as a flour substitute.

Here's one site but there are lots of others.

(If you see any recipes that call for almond or rice milk, you can just substitute real milk if you want to.)

Milk has carbs.

You're right. The recipe calls for almond milk though. The reason I said they could use regular milk is that so many people say...eeewwww, almond milk. I use almond milk for everything due to allergy--and it's good.

This is a quick look at the number of carbs in milk vs almond milk. Almond milk is almost nothing compared to regular milk.

The thread should read 'low' carb. The only food that has 'no' carbs are meats. Even lettuce has carbs.

Technically, that's inaccurate.

The only zero carb foods are FATS, Other foods thought to be zero carbs, including meat, contain trace amounts if carbs. Fir those trying to follow a strict low carb diet, those trace amounts can add up pretty quickly.

A true ZERO carb diet is impossible. Technically speaking, zero carbs means less than 20 per day. And surprisingly difficult to achieve. (40 is much more manageable ). Great list, for those interested: (taking my wine and lo mein away was my down fall with Atkins AFTER I lost 40 pounds, now, sadly, all returned.)

Milk, even Almond milk, has sugar content. If not opposed to dairy, use heavy cream, and cut it with water if necessary. The fat content will help keep blood sugar stable. Read labels, and make sure you remember to consider the serving size for the listed carb content. 4 grams of sugar in a teaspoon (typical ketchup content) is a lot more than 4 grams in an 8 oz serving. Since I mentioned ketchup, Heinz makes a ketchup sweetened with Splenda, and it tastes very good, so if ketchup is needed, use that. There's still carbs, but much less so.

Please no reinvention of the square wheel

I am trying to do something nice for someone living in a hotel since November. My sister made waffles with ground pork rinds and who knows what and they were good. No, I cannot ask her.

Then it's best to stick to meat, cream, butter,eggs, olive oil, no onions, carrots, maybe some green vegies or green salad.

Or buy some premade stuff - like low carb bread, tortillas, etc.
