Piping Hot Low-Carb Country Cheese Biscuits


These cheese biscuits I made are a better choice for low-carbers

There was an interesting discussion on my local talk radio station the other day about Southern cooking being the cause of the high obesity rates in the South. With foods like fried chicken, country fried steak, and biscuits & gravy, it's little wonder why so many Southerners are just plain fat.

I called up the show and spoke with the host who already knew about my 180-pound weight loss success story and has even read my book about it. His simple question was, "How can Southern people resist the temptation of these delicious foods?"

My answer -- "It's all about making the right choices about what you put in your mouth. If you want to eat your favorite Southern dish, then you need to find a way to make it healthier than it is now."

With that in mind, please allow me to introduce you to yet another one of the excellent products from Dixie Diner. This is their amazing Country Biscuit Mix.


Dixie Diner Country Biscuit Mix


This packaged mix can be prepared and cooked in less than 30 minutes and the biscuits are fantastic. Containing just 25 calories each, these biscuits are also fat-free, contain 4g protein, 3g fiber and just 1g net carb!

To Southernize this mix even more, I added some cheese to the batter before putting them in the oven to bake. When they were finished cooking to a beautiful golden brown, some of the cheese had squirted out of the piping hot biscuits. Yummy!

While the consistency is not exactly the same as the dense biscuits you are accustomed to, their light, fluffy and buttery taste will give you a taste of the South without compromising your low-carb lifestyle one bit!

Try some for yourself and make them for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even an in between meal snack. They are VERY good and better for you than those "other" white-flour laden, carb-loaded biscuits you've eaten your whole life and that made you overweight. Now taste how incredible healthier biscuits are like without the unnecessary carb, calories or even fat.

Eat the way you do now but try lowering calories, because this is should be just as or more effective than statins.

Choleseterol synthesis is dependant on many things and one of those is energy intake. Cutting back say 10%-20% would probably bring your Total cholesterol down to ranges of around 115-180mg/dL , lower LDL and keep HDL high.
