One of the things that I missed when I first started my low carb high fat diet was potatoes. I grew up on potatoes, but they are no longer a part of my diet. Potatoes are high in starch and I prefer not to waste my time with them because I have found better ways to indulge in my love for potatoes. That’s why I came up with this Low Carb High Fat Fake Potato Bar Recipe. This recipe is a potato alternative, which my family loves, and I think you will too!

Just so you have the facts… 1 medium potato has 163 calories (of course I don’t count calories and really don’t care about this number) , virtually no fat (which isn’t helpful for my diet), and 37 grams of carbohydrates which after the 4.7 grams of dietary fiber gives the potato  32.3 grams of net carbs (the ones I count). So one potato alone would kill my 20 grams of carbs a day limit. Which is why I avoid potatoes like the plague. Am I saying that potatoes are unhealthy? No, of course not. Although I would dare to debate the people who claim that potatoes are the healthiest food in the world. Starches turn to sugar when digested, which is why I avoid most starches.
