Low Carb Tangy Cucumbers

Tangy_CucumbersWell, once again I’m on my low carb diet. Trying to do things really good this time around and get my healthy low carb vegetables too. AAAANnnnd just for the record a cucumber is a fruit, but that’s a discussion for another day .

Otherwise, 
Cucumbers are REALLY good for you and apple cider vinegar is REALLY good for you too. This combines the two, and some salt, into a really easy to make and tasty low carb treat.

Enjoy:

Low carb fried tuna patty

Super simple fried tuna patty. Scramble one egg, add one 5 oz very well drained can of tuna and 4 tablespoons grated Parmesan (or two tablespoons grated Parmesan plus one tablespoon coconut flour for a little less salt/cheese flavor. This will result in a slightly higher carb count though). Thoroughly mix. Split into four equal parts. Roll into a ball and place in medium heat pan with lots of butter. Press flat with fork to desired thickness. Brown both sides. About 2 carbs for the whole recipe or about 5 carbs for the whole coconut flour recipe alternative.
