Starting a diet can be overwhelming, especially when you don’t know where to start. A low carb diet means consuming fewer carbohydrates and more protein and fat. A low carb diet is a great option when it comes to weight loss. However, it is challenging because you have to give up on foods like bread, pasta, potatoes, and other starchy food.
Not all people on the low carb diet eat dairy products, but if you want to add dairy to your diet, there is no harm in it. One of the most loved forms of dairy for those who are on a low carbs diet is cheese curds.
Cheese curds are one part of the famous Canadian dish, Poutine. They are the curdled pieces of milk made in the process of cheddar preparation. They are squeaky and tasty low cab snacks to have while you are on a diet, although you will have to avoid fried cheese curds.
Here are some cheese curds dishes that you can enjoy with guilt while you are on the low carb diet.
Baked Cheese Curds
Baked cheese curds make a great snack or appetizer. Cheese curds are usually eaten deep-fried, which you need to avoid if you are on a low carb diet.
But baked cheese curds are a great option. The recipe is simple, and you need oat flour, some eggs, and cheese curds.
Start with beating some eggs in the bowl and add cheese curds. Give it a good mix and coat them with oat flour. After the coating is done, bake it for 5 minutes, and you are ready to go.
Cheese Curds Salad
Salad is something that comes to our mind whenever we think about diet and can sometimes be really boring. However, salads with cheese curds can never be boring, and it is super delicious and healthy.
Cherry tomatoes and cheese salad taste amazing. The tangy-sweet flavour of cherry tomatoes and the squeak of cheese curds blend perfectly together
It is too simple to make as well, Grab some fresh cheese curds and half-sliced cherry tomatoes and mix them along with your favourite no-carb or low-carb dressing, and you have the plate of happiness.
This is a delicious and low carb twist on the classic Canadian comfort food, Poutine. Those who are on a diet, they cannot have the classic Poutine because it has potato fries in it.
To make cauliflower Poutine, you need cauliflower, cheese curds, some egg, and some oat flour. You need to bake cauliflower after dipping it in egg and then coating with oat flour. Make some brown gravy with the oat flour, and finally, take a bowl, add breaded cauliflower, pour some hot brown gravy, and top it with cheese curds.
When you purchase cheese curds, make sure you get fresh ones because if the cheese curds are not fresh, they won’t squeak. Not everyone in Australia has easy access to fresh cheese curds. I also didn’t have one until I started getting it from Pure Dairy. They sell fresh cheese curds in Australia, which are sourced from Wisconsin. They are individually quick frozen, so the squeak is retained, and also the nutritional value is not altered.
