* Almond Meal *


Low Carb Garlic Herb Crackers See the Living Low Carb with Almond Meal link on the left.

* Almond Milk *

Almond milk isn't really milk; it is made from almonds. There are a few different brands, but I prefer Blue Diamond Unsweetened Almond Breeze because it only has 1 or 2 net carbs and contains fewer other ingredients I want to avoid than other brands I have seen.

You may be able to find Blue Diamond Unsweetened Almond Breeze in your local grocery store. It is available in several flavors and sizes. You can also order it online. These links will get you started.

* Carbquik and Carbalose Flour *

Carbalose Flour is made from modified wheat and has far fewer net carbs than regular wheat flour.

Carbquik uses Carbalose Flour to make a bake mix similar to Bisquick.

I have not been able to find Carbquik or Carbalose Flour in a grocery store, though you may be able to find them if you are lucky enough to have a low carb store nearby. You can order Carbquik and Carbalose Flour online.

* Coconut Oil *

Coconut oil is a healthy oil which is solid at room temp, but melts easily. I use it in chocolates as well as other recipes.

You may be able to find coconut oil in your local store, but look for good quality.

You can also order coconut oil online. Try these links.

* Coconut, Unsweetened *

Unsweetened coconut is difficult to find in person, though you may be able to find it at a natural foods store or section of your market. I have found it at Wegman's. You can also order it online.  You can start with these links.

* Dixie Diner Mashers *

These are a low carb version of instant mashed potatoes and come in a variety of flavors. I have used them in a few recipes. Be aware they contain soy, so if you want/need to avoid soy, you'll want to avoid these, too.

I have not found these in a regular store, but I have seen them in a low carb store. You can also order them online.

* Erythritol *
Low Carb Russian Teacakes See the Living Low Carb with Erythritol link on the left.

* Fiberfit Liquid *

Fiberfit is a liquid sweetener. It is basically liquid sucralose with soluble fiber added. Because it doesn't contain fillers, it has no carbs added like powdered and granular forms of sucralose have.

I like to use Fiberfit on its own and to balance the "coolness" of erythritol in my recipes.

I have not found Fiberfit in person. You can order it online through this link.

* Flaxmeal *

* Glucomannan Powder *

* Guar Gum *

Guar gum is a thickener. Unlike flours and starches, it contains no carbs. A little goes a long way and it needs to be sprinkled and stirred in gradually to avoid clumping and turning into a gummy ball.

You may be able to find guar gum in your local store. You can also order it online.

* Heinz One Carb Ketchup *

This ketchup is sweetened with sucralose and contains only 1 net carb per serving. It is also called "Heinz Reduced Sugar Tomato Ketchup."

You may be able to find this in your local store or you can order it online.

* Hood Calorie Countdown Dairy Beverage *

Hood Calorie Countdown is a milk substitute with very few carbs. You can drink it like milk; I like to use it in recipes.

It used to be easier to find Hood "milk" in local stores, but it has gotten more difficult. I can still find it at my local Walmart.

I don't know of a place to order Hood Calorie Countdown, but the 1st link below shows you what it looks like and gives you a store finder. If you can't find it, you can sub 1/2 cream and 1/2 water for the white Hood in my recipes or check out the 2nd link below for another low carb milk sub.

Hood Calorie Countdown comes in Fat Free White, 2% White, and 2% Chocolate flavors.
