We’ve got another funtabulicious Friday here today in Episode 68 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends.

This podcast is one of the most unique in the low-carb and Paleo communities because you get to hear real opinions from real people living this lifestyle sharing the real deal about the nutrition and health ideas of our day.

We’ve got two more awesome guest friends from the Paleo and low-carb blogging community joining us today as we welcome Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and Jennifer Courtney from the “PaleoMomRx” blog. Listen in as Jimmy and Cassie talk about what foods RDs would eat and wouldn’t eat, how so many people are diagnosing their health online these day and how listening to health podcasts can actually lead you to lose more weight than those who don’t. Then they invite in Sam and Jennifer to address how a medical doctor gets it all wrong about high-fat, low-carb diets, the absurdity of the new Coke anti-obesity ads focusing on calories, whether “fat genes” determine whether you’ll become obese or not, the viability of BMI for measuring obesity, the negative effect of carbohydrates on the brain and the fact that there is 30% more sugar in cereals sold in the UK than in the US. And then our favorite part of the show is the recipe and cooking tips time at the end with Sam and Jennifer featuring a chicken fajita dish. Now you know what to do: pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk!

Recipe:

LOW CARB CHICKEN FAJITAS
INGREDIENTS
▪ 1 medium chicken breast
▪ 1 lettuce
▪ 2 tomatoes
▪ 1 red pepper
▪ 1 birdseye chilli
▪ 1 small red onion
▪ ½ avocado1 lime
▪ 1 tablespoon of olive oil
DIRECTIONS
Cut 1 tomato, ½ red pepper, birdseye chilli and red onion to make a salsa. Spoon out the avocado and chop up the other tomato, mix those together, squeeze the lime in and mash it up to make a guacamole.
Slice the other ½ of the red pepper and chicken into strips. Fry them in the olive oil. Once cooked put on a separate plate. Now comes the low carb bit. You’ll be using the lettuce leaves as tortillas to make the fajitas. With a leaf in hand spread on some salsa, guacamole and place some fried chicken peppers on top. Roll it up and eat it up, but be careful  as I have had salsa juice run down my top on a couple of occasions!
