The CKD Food/Recipe List
« on: October 25, 2009, 09:58:51 AM »
Since I've been recommending the CKD quite often, I get quite a bit of questions regarding what you can or can't eat. So, in response, I'm starting an entire thread dedicated to posting a list of foods and recipes that can be used throughout your CKD. Feel free to post your low-carb/carb-free ideas.

To start out, here's a cheat sheet of foods that contain 5g or less of carbs/100g serving size:


VEGETABLES:
Alfalfa seeds, sprouted 1.28
Arugula 2.05
Asparagus, cooked 2.63
Bamboo shoots, cooked 0.92
Beans, green, cooked 4.69
Beans, snap, green, cooked 4.68
Beet greens, cooked 2.56
Broccoli, cooked 2.16
Brussels sprouts, cooked 4.5
Cabbage, cooked 2.16
Cauliflower, cooked 1.41
Celeriac (celery root), cooked 4.7
Celery 1.95
Chard, swiss, cooked 2.04

MEAT AND FISH:
All meat and fin fish 0.00
Caviar 4.00
Crab 0.95
Lobster 1.28

EGGS AND DAIRY:

Cheese, Gouda 2.22
Cheese, Swiss 3.38
Cream cheese, 2.66
Cottage cheese, 2% milkfat 3.63
Eggs 1.22
Half and Half 4.30
Heavy Cream 2.79
Goat milk 4.45
Mayonnaise 2.70
Milk, 1% milkfat, added solids 4.97
Milk, 3.25% milkfat 4.66
Ricotta cheese, whole milk 3.04
Soy milk, 0.51

DIETARY FIBER:
Soluble and insoluble fiber (a part of other foods) 0.00

BEVERAGES:

Coffee (without cream or sugar) 0.00

SWEETENERS:
Aspartame (NutraSweet) 0.001
Saccharin (Sweet'N Low) 0.001
Stevia 0.00
Sucralose (Splenda) 0.001

1 Both aspartame and sucralose are usually bulked up with maltodextrin, but it is usually in such a small amount that it can be ignored. Likewise, Sweet'N Low is bulked up with a small amount of dextrose (glucose)

Do keep in mind that the amount listed is per 100 grams of product, so don't just go to town on eating them as the carb count can add up fast.
