Wasa crisps with jarred marinara, sautéed onions, green peppers, cherry tomatoes, and garlic, and then topped with cheese before air frying for 3-4 minutes. My leftovers were claimed by a kiddo.

@GreenTealael You safe? I woke up and saw there was a mass shooting in your area.

Thank you for checking on me 😍

I am safe (Rochester is quite far from me) but prayers of justice for the victim's families ♥️

So...I couldn't handle the bread (like I didn't already know that 🤦🏾‍♀️) and payed the price.

Here's a low carb tortilla burrito several hours later featuring a fire stick remote for size comparison 🤣

Made this Keto chicken Pizza Crust this AM (making regular pizza for the fam later and I wanna join in on the fun).

It smells DELICIOUS: 350g shredded chicken breast, 1/2 cup grated Parmesan, 2 eggs & seasonings. Baked at 400 for 20 mins.

85 calories & .05g NET carbs per serving (1 serving == 1/8 of the entire thing), plus whatever toppings you add...

Will post pics of the final product later...sooo excited!

@GreenTealael, BTW, I did get the zero carb bread from BariatricPal. It is Ok. I obviously can not compare it to the Aldi variety, so it “may” be comparable. 🤷‍♀️ Unfortunately, it does give me a belly ache after about a half a slice. I ended up getting a regular old loaf of Ezekiel bread and have a slice of that when I “must” have real bread. It obviously has carbs and more calories, but I have a slice and don’t crave it very often...like less than once a week. No guilt for me since it is such a rare treat. I toast it and spread with cream cheese, sprinkle with Everything But the Bagel, and top with deli sliced ham. I had one slice of the zero carb bread with a bit of low sugar jam. Once again, just ok, and had a belly ache. No thanks. 😬

This looks so good! It even looks like dough, amazing!

I didn’t know it could work with shredded chicken breast. I’ve been wanting to try it ever since I saw a recipe video for it on Facebook. In the video they used ground chicken instead.

The Aldi Bread and Thin Slim bread IMHO is not comparable except the fact that the both have zero net carbs. Sorry if I that distinction was not clearer 🥺

I tried Thin Skin about a year before I tried L'Oven and I thought it was ok but not nearly as realistic in taste & texture as L'Oven.

If I want a traditional sandwich I'd choose L'Oven, if I wanted to make French toast I'd choose Thin Slim (plain white, I've never tried honey)

My sister who is not a WLS person also could not handle the gastro effects, must be the type of Fiber IDK, but I had no issues

Ezekiel bread is really good & I like it because it tends to be hard/dry which I appreciate more than soft bread.

Whew! Since getting the zero carb bread, I haven't talked this much about bread in the WLS Community in a long while. I feel like my secret is being revealed & I hope no one is being triggered 🤣

OMG. Success!!! I actually liked this better than regular pizza!! Its crispy and everything! Fam even gave it the thumbs up, but they are barred from eating more cuz it’s all MINE (they can eat the regular pizzas I made for them).

Now I’m thinking I could use this for other bread/crust applications 😎 oh, the possibilities!

I ate an entire slice (1/8 of the pizza) but I probably should have eaten less (and slower, dammit), cuz I am stuffed at the moment (verging on TOO stuffed)

1 slice is 155 cals, 1.6g net carbs.

Toopings include: mozzarella, pepperoni, salami, sundried tomatoes, Brussel sprouts and jalapeño.

Recipe review😬 I used the products below to make these. IMO, cook time of twelve minutes in my air fryer is too long. They have a slight bitter/burnt flavor. Cooked in batches due to air fryer size. Second batch I watched closely to achieve less burnt flavor. Probably about 11 mins and more in basket as I guess my first half was smaller. See photos.

Notes: Watch closely during cooking to achieve best taste/texture. Does not taste anything like Fritos, but was not really expecting lentil Pasta to taste like corn chip. 😂Pretty tasty and easy for a crunchy, salty snack. Very filling! I ate probably 15 pieces during preparation to get cooking and seasoning right. I am very full now 😬

@GreenTealael, thank you for sharing the recipe! 😀

So for special occasions we get the fancy donuts from them bakery in town that has been around for 80+ years. My oldest turned 15 this month so donuts it was. I’m not regretting my life choices to eat a donut because I have never been a donut fan. But before surgery I’d have eaten the whole thing. (Same donut next to it for comparison.)
