Recall that I purchased one year’s worth of “Low Carb” recipes and shopping lists from EMEALS on a Groupon.  A pretty good deal, for $2.00 a month and darned convenient that the Hubs can do all the shopping.

However, one thing I have found is that EMEAL’s interpretation of low carb is different than mine.

I come from the low carb camp that you should refrain from using sugar (or any “real” sweetners for that matter).  The recipe called for Honey, but since it was only 1 Tbsp, I guess I was able to live with it for a day.  The rest of the ingredients were olive oil, grape tomatoes (I used cherry), chicken breast pounded flat, salt, pepper, and Balsamic vinaigrette salad spritzer.  Huh ?? Salad spritzer.  I went with it, although I would have preferred to use real Balsamic.

The beans called for butter, parsley, dijon, and lemon rind.

Overall this meal gets a thumbs down.  The chicken was not terrifically flavorful and the lemon rind in the beans was not a great flavor.  More importantly the family AND myself just didn’t care for it.
