Twisted Tuesday and a Slow-Carb “Dessert”

Welcome to our first Twisted Tuesday.  Why twisted?  Because desserts have no place in the slow-carb diet, with the exception of cheat day.

But our mission on this diet, apart from the obvious, is to make it fun.  So we scoured the various lists of acceptable foods, and came up with something that can very nearly pass as a real dessert.  So, without further ado, here it is:

Slow-Carb “Dessert”

By Shami’s Gourmet

Slow Carb

It’s not exactly sweet, but it is quite tasty and all ingredients are slow-carb friendly.  You can’t eat this all day on the slow carb-diet, but two or three during the day is acceptable.
Prep Time:
2 Minutes
Total Time:
2 Minutes
1 serving


  • 2-3 leaves iceberg lettuce
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter (only ingredients in the peanut butter should be peanuts and salt)
  • 1 tbsp slivered almonds
  • 1-2 baby carrots


  1. Place lettuce leaves flat in a small bowl
  2. Spoon peanut butter onto lettuce
  3. Sprinkle slivered almonds over peanut butter
  4. Place carrot(s) on top
  5. Optionally, fold lettuce over contents
  6. Enjoy!!
