Low-Carb Lent

Monday, February 27, 2012
tofuDo you follow certain food traditions for Lent? Perhaps you forgo meat on certain days, or animal products altogether. There's no doubt that the tendency is to substitute high-carbohydrate foods in place of the protein, but it needn't be that way. One thing to do is to eat more fat if you're cutting back on protein. For example, add more oil in your salad dressings and vegetables. Also, find high-protein substitutes for meat dishes. I have recipes on this site to help, and you can also check out this collection of Lenten recipes compiled by About.com's Guide to Catholicism, Scott Richert. There are some good low-carb ideas as well as those higher in carbs.
