Lately I have been trying to get more fish into my diet. I used to be much better at that than I am now but fell off the wagon at some point. I took a good look at some of the recipes I used to enjoy and think I understand why -- many of them are not very low-carb friendly.

I grew up in San Diego, CA and developed a love for fish tacos early on. It is hard to get a good one outside of Baja - and now that I dwell in the Midwest, let's just say it's impossible BUT I have been making my own for eons now -- I even figured out how to enjoy them low carb.

JAM is not something one thinks of as a low-carb food. Sure you can buy sugar-free jams (that are pretty good actually) but making them at home isn't entirely possible without TONS of sugar....at least that is what I thought.

As a single, empty-nester, I don't buy a lot of large cuts of meats unless I have a plan to cook for a crowd. A few weeks ago I scored a great deal on a pork loin roast. I threw it into the freezer with the thought that I'd either cook it for Easter (we went a different direction) or I would cook it for the special man in my life (hadn't got around to that one).

Early in my low-carb journey I saw Chef Ming Tsai and his Mom make a dish that featured thin-sliced beef steak and asparagus. It had simple ingredients and certainly could be made low-carb. Weeks later when I decided I wanted to try it I couldn't find the recipe to save my life.

When growing up, I spent a good amount of time in New Mexico -- my grandparents and extended family lived there (we were a military family and had moved away). We visited as often as possible. As a result of this connection, I learned to LOVE green chilies - on most everything. Burgers, eggs, etc., Well, my grown-up palette has decided that even better than green chilies is Poblanos.
