Weekends are rough! So here’s our contribution to getting you back on track for the week. Personally, I use these low carb recipes, 3 – 5 times a week to keep my carb intake low at night. Save them up, print them out and share them with your friends and family! Low Carb, Paleo chicken nuggets made at home are simple, reasonably priced, gluten free and MUCH better for you then drive throughs and store bought. When the usual brands of chicken nuggets were dissected by Doctors Richard D. deShazo, MD and Steven Bigler last year, they found that store bought nuggets were made up of a mixture of tendons, some protein, carbs and a whole lot of FAT. Making your own is definitely the way to go if this is a favorite in your household!
