Low-Carbing Among Friends “Buy Supplies” LINKS …

 

COMMON SUPPLIES REQUIRED: I’ve put together a comprehensive Clickable list of groceries & spices etc. needed for making 95% of recipes in the cookbook series: Low-Carbing Among Friends. Don’t panic when you see the long list. Instead, choose only the “flours” that you will want to bake with, choose your own sweetener combination, Many of us combine sweeteners for the synergy they provide. Out of each section, choose the items that you most regularly use and add a few interesting ones, based on a few recipes you’d like to make. Each week, plan which recipes you’d like to try and note the ingredients on your shopping list, including meats & fresh produce that you will need. I keep a running list on the side of my refrigerator, so that I never run out of anything. When I remember something I am running short of or need, I add it to that list.
