I'm not a fan of the Italian dressings. What do you all eat for a salad dressing on the LC/HF diet?

Sometimes, I add no carb mayo to my regular 2 carb ranch dressing to get to use double the amount with same carb count. Add sugar free ketchup to mayo and have 1000 dressing...you can even add a little sf relish to it. Some people will water the bought dressing down to stretch it. Sour cream with a little garlic, dehydrated onions and some bacon bits is good for a change. I have even finely grated cucumbers in sour
cream or mayo and added a little salt. Experiment.

Lunch for me is the meal with most carbohydrates during the day, but it seems for my body that this works fine.
My better half makes lunch for us. He is just the best!:)
He makes vaffels from cottage cheese, eggs, oatmeal, bran, baking powder, liquid natreen, vanilla essence and cardamom.
Each vaffel is 6,5 carbohydrates and 9,9 protein.
I eat 2 vaffels and I always eat berry with them. I have strawberry from the garden and also raspberry and blueberry. I freeze them in small portions, so I eat 50 gram of berry with my vaffel, and sometimes I also have some whipped cream. This meal makes me feel good for hours.
If he is not home or dont feel like making vaffels, I usual makes pancakes of eggs, sour creme, psyllium, splenda,bran and salt. They are best eaten after a couple of hours, so I love those when we are on trips.
If I visit someone, I eat what they offer, but stays away from things that will makes my BG rise.

Walden Farms makes a variety of flavors of zero carb dressings. They also make coleslaw dressing, barbeque sauce, maple syrup, chocolate syrup...etc..
