... Nutmeg also makes a great addition to spinach. ...

Thanks for the tip, Umpa!  :)

I just bought some fresh nutmeg and a small grater for it (and ginger).
I'll try adding some nutmeg next time I make this dish.

Pre-shredded cheeses tend to be coated with a potato starch so it isnt sticky. I always shred my own. Carb free that way!  ;D

Wow!... :o I did not know that cheese you grate yourself will last longer than pre-grated!
Hmmmm.....  :-\ Wonder why?

Per pound, it's cheaper than pre-grated too!
Since eating low carb & high protein can get a bit expensive, I love to save a few bucks whenever I can.

Next time, I'll buy blocks of cheese from Costco and grate them myself in the old "grindy thingy" and put them in Zip-Lock freezer bags.
 
The stuff you learn on this forum just blows my mind!

We should NEVER take carb counts for granted!
This should be a cardinal rule for all of us.

Whenever buying a product, the first thing to do is READ the nutrition label EVERY TIME!
That way, we protect ourselves against eating unwanted carbs due to a manufacturing change.
