I started a Swedish site in September 2011 to prove to people that it is possible to eat good varied food even if you do eat low or no carbs. At work (and from other people around me) I sometimes heard:
-“It must be really boring eating only meat and fat”
-“Meat is so boring, you get no variation”
-“Fat is only butter and cream”
When you look around in the cantina at the place I work I cannot see much more variation in the carb filled boxes. Its Pasta with meatballs, pasta with hot-dogs etc. Not much variation there either…
So I started the site to prove them wrong about less variation on LCHF.
If you want you can really create as much variation as you can with pasta and other big carb food. You might have to be a little more creative and to give all low carbers in Sweden some nice inspiration with both text and pictures.
Now I am going international and I will try to get the same to all you who do not speak or read Swedish that good…
Regarding the variation I have run a couple of “special weeks”. During these weeks I have tried to vary one main ingredient as much as possible. One week I ate only salmon and one week only chicken and one week only pork chops. I really did 5 totally different plates from the same ingredients. Pretty soon I will try to do a couple of special weeks on beef, shrimps and maybe minced meat.
Regarding the numbers on the site I will use the metric system so it’s gonna be kilos (kg) and not pounds (lb). 1kg is 2,2 lb.
