Phase 1 serving: 1 cup =1 serving of vegetables plus One invisible carbohydrate*
Note: Be careful with the Invisible Carbs here. Play with this recipe until you find your favorite combination.
* One Invisible Carbohydrate can be equal to one gram of carbohydrate. The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) allows food manufacturers to label any food/drink with 5 or fewer calories or, 999 milligrams of a carbohydrate (almost 1 gram), for each serving size and still label that serving as 0 Calories and 0 grams carbohydrate!!! You must be vigilant to read labels and watch for 0-0-0 grams of carb, fat & sugar. If there is a serving size listed, there is probably a carb in there somewhere! Remember…too many of the invisible carbs can kick you out of ketosis if you are in Phase 1 or 2.
