Enjoy these Atkins Low Carbohydrate Diet Recipes
How to Prepare: Heat up a frying pan over medium heat (about 5 on an electric stove top). Melt about 2 tablespoons of butter in the pan. Peel and chop one clove of garlic, and fry it in the pan, just until it's light brown. Add 8 slices of prosciutto, cut into smaller pieces. Fry the prosciutto for about 3-5 minutes; you're not trying to make it crisp, just flavor the butter. Add 12 ounces of chopped spinach, toss all of it together in the pan, cover the pan. Let it cook until the spinach is cooked (it's better if the spinach is not over cooked), about 3-5 minutes. Delicious and fast!

Sauteed Broccoli Florets, Zucchini and Mushrooms
Serves:10 CarbsPerServing:11 total recipe excluding broccoli, lemon juice and italian seasonings Effort:Easy
1 1/2 zucchini -- sliced and chopped 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms -- 1 large handful - I estimated 1/2 cup for nutritional counting 2 stalks broccoli florets (I save the stalks to make Appletree Salad later in the week, YUM)1 clove garlic -- crushed salt and pepper sprinkling of Italian Seasonings 1 squeeze of lemon 2 tablespoons olive oil
How to Prepare: In a skillet, heat the olive oil and throw in all the veggies, sprinkle on the seasonings and cover with a lid so that the steam helps cook them too.
Temp should be med-high. Stir occasionally and when the broccoli is bright green throw in the garlic and cook for two more minutes. Before taking off heat, squeeze lemon juice over.
Slice three tomato slices for each plate, season with salt and pepper and drizzle balsamic and olive oil over. Exquisite!!

Raw Spinach Sliced Garlic cloves Jane's Crazy Mix-Up Salt SeasoningsCracked Black Pepper -- (or seasonings of choice) Olive Oil or one of your choice
How to Prepare: Heat about one tablespoon of olive oil in hot skillet (I use a wok). Throw as much spinach in pan as you would like (use your own judgement); then put sliced garlic cloves in (again, you as much as you would like -- I use about 3 large cloves).

Don't blink! As soon as the spinach wilts (takes seconds, if pan is hot) take spinach out of pan. This is a very simple and delicious dish.
