30 Day Low Carb Diet Plan - Day 2

Day 2 - Low Carb Recipes

Strawberry Crepes
Butter (enough to fry crepes)
3 large eggs
2/3 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons Dr. Atkins Bake Mix
4 tablespoons sugar substitute
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon orange zest grated

Strawberry filling:
2 cups strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced
6 tablespoons Sugar Twin sugar substitute

Prepare a heavy, 8 inch skillet or crepe pan with heated butter. Whisk all crepe ingredients together in mixing bowl. Once the butter stops foaming, pour 1/6 crepe mixture into skillet, making sure to cover the bottom evenly. Cook until bottom is browned and top is set. Use a spatula to flip the crepe and brown the other side. Once done, transfer to a paper towel. Repeat this procedure with remaining batter and butter.
Next, make your filling by combining strawberries with sugar substitute and spoon about ¼ of mixture on each crepe. Add light whipped cream to taste and garnish with remaining strawberries.

Lemon Marinated Sirloin
1 pound steak, your choice of cuts
1 Teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup cooking oil
2 Tablespoons sliced green onion
4 Teaspoons Splenda
1 1/2 Teaspoons salt
1 Teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 Teaspoon prepared mustard
1/8 Teaspoon pepper

If steak has fat around edges, be sure to score them first with a knife. Place the steak into a shallow baking dish. Combine all ingredients to make the lemon marinade and pour over steak. Allow to sit in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours so the marinade has a chance to soak in. Grill steak to your preference on an outdoor grill, adding leftover over marinade during cooking to maintain tenderness.
