It is delicious and sometimes I add uncured smoked sausage to it and it is even better.

I use a little butter and olive oil mixed together and then saute a small amount of chopped onion in it and then add the cabbage, herbs, and the chicken broth. Cover and let it cook down. Take the lid off and let it evaporate.

Do I use ALL of the ingredients you replied with combined or just butter, just olive oil, etc.?

You can saute it in a little butter, olive oil, chicken broth, and herbs and eat it as cooked cabbage.

I mix mine with homemade dressing and if I don't want to mess with that I will make a dressing with low sugar commercial salad dressings mixed with some splenda or you can also use stevia.

I need your advice! I bought 3 bags of coleslaw mix on clearance. What are some smart carbing ways of using it? I like slaw dressing but would love to know other ways of preparing.

I was eating those raw and then I found that with thyroid instead of not having
them at all because it interferes with the meds, I can have them cooked.
Better than not having them at all.

Sugar snap peas are a good crunchy snack :D. I grabbed a little veggie snack container from the supermarket one afternoon and it had carrots, grape tomatoes and sugar snap peas, I was surprised by how much I liked them.

I love radishes too and they really satisfy me. I also like those mini colored peppers as I'm not super low carb.

Well I try to find low carb vegies to eat . like radishes and I slice them so I get more crunch per bite. Celery is good too, Cabbage is low carb and you can eat plenty of that - cook in butter or bacon grease.

I up my fat intake which will curb the carb craving.eventually. I'm still learning

I have arthritis in the spine too so I know what you are dealing with. I have R.A. so I sometimes have to take steroids. Things that work for me are to drink lots of water and brush my teeth a lot. When I do have to eat I force myself to eat something healthy. Don't keep tempting things in the house. I buy my husband carby junk I don't like as he insists on having something. Then I'm not tempted.

Just started on Tramadol and steroids for my back since the first meds weren't working. I know going into this that I'm going to have major munchies for carbs, even though I'm trying for low carb. Help?

X-rays showed a spine full of arthritis which was aggravated by the wreck.

I am drinking lots of water. Can't drink it cold though as I can
only manage a few sips. But tap water is fine and I can drink
a lot of it. At least I'm doing something right...

Get your 8 cups of water in a day. You will eat less. When you are feeling hungry drink a glass of water. Sometimes people confuse thirst with hunger.

If you feel a craving coming on try brushing your teeth. It often short circuits it.

The protein slows the absorption of the carbs and keeps the blood sugar stable.
