party like a wok star

A little snack of raspberries, blueberries,
cashews, and Greek-Style Yogurt
What? You didn't know?
Low*Carb treat for sure!
Butter Lettuce comes with "strings" attached
pretty high-maintenance, but worth it - 
just like any Diva
 ground chuck, bag of  cabbage mix, water chestnuts, onions...
the secret is in the spice/sauce:
sesame oil, tamari, rice wine vinegar, fish sauce
garnished w/ cashews
all you need to "party like a wok star"
*apron optional, but highly recommended*

Monster w/protein x2
Creatine, water, 
coffee w/sf hot chocolate
berry snack w/ greek-style yogurt
beef n cabbage
6,000 steps @ work, no work-out -
way too tired and sleepy both!


  1. Everything looks delicious, really cute picture of you my friend......:-) Hugs

  2. You made cabbage look fun... wok star for sure!

  3. Oh Anne, I am so with you on the coffee mixed with SF hot cocoa. Yum!

    Love the 'wok star' pic. ;)
    Food looks great, too.

    Best wishes for a great week,

  4. that berry snack with yogurt looks so good!
    the cabbage does look fun. the cashews must add a different texture. but a good one.

  5. Thanks for the comments on the food pics -
    I was secretly hoping to make people drool!

    People don't know what's on LowCarb -
    They think it's all about beef jerky and hard boiled eggs!

    Hope everyone had a good weekend -
    Ready to get back into the mix!?
    Onward and downward!

  6. The greek yogurt mix look delicious. Can't say it's low carb though cause greek yogurt has tons of carbs.

  7. Aha - my point exactly -
    Here's a link to Greek Gods Yogurt

    4 oz of the plain yogurt has only 5 grams of carbs.
    Can't go wrong with that, eh?
    A snack size serving. Yummy as the day is long.

  8. Actually, the plain isn't that bad. Probably should have checked before I commented. The only greek ones I have tried were the flavored ones which were around 20g per container ::foot in mouth::.

  9. anne - Even on an extreme keto diet, it's a doable amount of carbs. Thanks for making me aware of this :).

  10. Tony - You and I are kindred spirits!

    The flavoured yogurt, yes. Carb City!
    But the plain ones are good for little mixes -
    you can even mix protein powder in them.

    Fage is good too @ 7 carbs per 8 oz

  11. I love the kitchen and of course you wearing an apron :)

  12. *Disclaimer*
    SpunySuzi - not my kitchen!
    Not even my apron!
    This is what you call FANCY!
    Mine is what you call not-so-fancy!
    But I sure do like it, too!
    My whole kitchen would fit on this range!
    Alas - all I brought to this party was my cute face!

  13. Hey Wok Star! I'm back from vacation and catching up on your posts. You've been busy-- Love the Maple leaf spatula and congrats on being a judge!

    Hope you have a great week ahead.

  14. HEY Anne, glad to see your woking it out. Everything looked great, Have to go back and read your post I have missed. you a judge now too....Is there nothing you won't do. Take care. hug to you, oh shite hugs.

  15. Great post and love the wok star pose!! I sent this to my hubby the guitar player who is also working on weight loss. I can see I need to come back to your blog and go way back to the beginning and read all your posts. Will let you know when I have done that.

  16. I just found your blog and I love your food pictures.

    Greek yogurt and berries is a great combo!

  17. Great title and love the pic with the pan held like a guitar. Them cashews have my mouth watering. I lurves them, but have banned them. One of the things I can't stop eating once I start. Luckily, there are plenty of other nuts to choose from. Butter lettuce is fantastic.

    It's always all about the sauce. :D

  18. Nice pic. So says a chef named sous. :-)

  19. I believe the cute face was enough :)

  20. This looks delicious. What kind of greek yogurt is that?

  21. Nancy - Yummy Greek Gods Yogurt - plain flavour.
    I am trying to blog about the flexibility of LowCarb...
    It's often not what people think it is...
    Low Carb is really just "common sense" on a plate!

    Thanks for all of your kind words!

  22. Greek yogurt with fresh berries has been my new go-to thing to eat. It's SO good and so filling!

    And I, like all the other people that have commented, love the picture - too funny! :)

    Anne (yay! Another Anne with an 'e'!)

    P.S. Thanks for your comment on my blog - it made my day!


I would love to hear from you!
