                     "Life began with waking up and loving my mother's face."
                                                                                George Eliot

When you're a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice — once for herself, and once for her child.

Real Mothers:

  • Real Mothers don't eat quiche; they don't have time to make it.
  • Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.
  • Real Mothers often have sticky floors, dirty ovens and happy kids.
  • Real Mothers know that dried playdough doesn't come out of carpet.
  • Real Mothers sometimes ask "why me?" and get their answer when a little voice says, "because I love you best."
  • Real Mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade... It is marked by the progression of Mama to Mommy to Mother.
All of us at Low Carb Luxury wish all you hard working mothers out there a joyous Mother's Day.

                        Product Of The Month

Our product review team features a "Product Of The Month" in each issue of our magazine. These products are a group consensus of those we find to be the most innovative, healthy, tasty, and/or helpful to the low-carber's daily dietary regime.

Carb Clever Fruits from Del Monte

When many of us started low carb, we felt we had to curb things like fruit... certainly the canned stuff. Even though for some of us, it was our favorite kind. Canned fruits are usually either packed in Heavy Syrup (HFCS, sugar, etc), Light Syrup (a little less of the same), "In its own juice" (concentrated fruit juices to sweeten the fruit and hike up the carbs), or Water (ugh...)

Del Monte Carb Clever Peaches And then the good folks at Del Monte got an idea. Why not pack the fruit with a Splenda sweetened syrup? And thus was born
Carb Clever Fruits from Del Monte.

They come in 5 varieties:
Sliced Peaches (6 net carbs per serving)
Sliced Pears (9 net carbs per serving)
Fruit Cocktail (10 net carbs per serving)
Pear Chunks (9 net carbs per serving)
Peach Chunks (6 net carbs per serving)

But the first question's going to be, "Does it taste good?"
"Can I tell the difference?"

I think you'll be pleased with the results... In fact, many non-lowcarbers we had tasting these didn't know the difference at all. Bottom line, Carb Clever fruit cocktail tastes like Del Monte's regular fruit cocktail.
Del Monte Carb Clever Pears
Not for induction, these fruits will fit into most any other part of your weight loss plan. And besides simply chilling them and enjoying them as-is, you might think about the ways you used canned fruits in your pre-lowcarb life. I'm working on a great version of "dump cake" and will post the recipe when it's complete.

Try using the peaches to bake over chicken. Or try the sliced pears in your salads with a sprinkling of walnuts. Use them to make your homemade ice creams with (think peach chunks in a vanilla base!) The possibilities are endless.

Del Monte Carb Clever Fruit Cocktail The 14.5 oz fruit cocktail, pear slices, and peach slices each contain 3 1/2 servings, and the diced fruits in 8.25 oz cans offer up 2 servings. Each contains fruit, water, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), ace-k, and sucralose. That means that these fruits come in at 50 to 70% less carbs than fruits in heavy syrup. And they don't contain preservatives. So you can feel good about them as a healthy alternative.

Good job, Del Monte! A big thumbs up from us!

Del Monte Carb Clever Fruits are available nationwide in your local grocery. If you can't locate them, give Del Monte a call at 1-800-543-3090.
