Welcome to Seasonal Low Carb
Welcome to Seasonal Low Carb (SLC)! I’m Darcy and I’m the mother of two awesome boys (5 and 3) and the wife of a hungry husband. We are all happy foodies at heart – so changing our ways of eating from the Standard American Diet (SAD) to low-carbohydrate (low-carb) living was HARD.
“I found living a low-carb life was harder then I thought it should be. I was overwhelmed with the different types of low-carb approaches out there, since everyone thinks THEIR way is the only way.”
I found living a low-carb life was harder then I thought it should be. I was overwhelmed with the different types of low-carb approaches out there, since everyone thinks THEIR way is the only way. Then there’s the new terms, ingredients, and daily food/macronutrient tracking to do. Incorporating all that within the already limited time/budget I had available each day was difficult. And making a satisfying low carb meal with the hour I had left from getting home before my kids’ bedtime was beyond frustrating. I get tired just writing about all of it! I knew I couldn’t be the only one struggling and that there had to be a better way. After lots of research, trial and error, and losing 60 lbs. and counting; Seasonal Low Carb was born!
SLC is a one stop shop of information, delicious and affordable recipes, alternative cooking methods and encouragement for you to find the right form of low carb for you. We strive to make living your unique type of low carb as easy and enjoyable as possible. SLC answers “what’s for dinner” through a variety of new monthly menus that serve a larger spectrum of low carb protocols because one approach doesn’t work best for everyone. And our MENU BUILDER allows you to create the perfect menu/meal plan for you through our ever expanding library of recipes.
SLC meal plans provide macronutrient profiles for each recipe and daily meal plan totals. But no one else but SLC allows you to ADJUST your macronutrient totals within most recipes to more precisely meet your daily goals. It’s an incredible tool to support your low carb goals. You can also adjust the serving size for each recipe to cook for one or for a crowd. The variety of menus support a variety of protocols, budgets and culinary skills- so new cooks don’t need to worry! Each recipe comes with directions for multiple cooking appliances and methods where possible, so you can cook normally, batch cook, or freezer cook with the appliances you have access to. Each recipe also includes U.S., Metric and Imperial measurements for our international clients. And each menu comes with its own shopping list to make preparing for the meal plan that much easier.
I add my own personal foodie touch by focusing on a new country/region every other month that inspires that month’s menus and recipes. In between each regional focus will be a mixed menu pulling from our growing database of recipes. I’ll post weekly informational articles on the blog, and extra educational and motivational resources available only to certain membership levels. Our very competitive prices make low carb affordable, no matter what your budget.
Low-carb is very personal to me. I discovered the low-carb world as I addressed serious health issues (thyroid cancer, metabolic syndrome, scoliosis, fibroids, pituitary tumors and resulting infertility, and familial Alzheimer’s and ADD). I was a bit of a hot mess! During the pinnacle of all that I worked a full time job with a 2 hour a day commute (by foot, bus and metro- uphill both ways- ha!!)! It was crazy! My experience with low carb is not restricted to an academic understanding of it’s benefits- I’ve been personally transformed by it! I’ve walked in the shoes of being an overweight, tired, budget conscious parent with limited time and support, but a big desire to go low-carb. I’m passionate about making low carb easier, more enjoyable and more effective. My goal is to provide a tool box of services to enable you to build the best low carb lifestyle for you so you too can experience the benefits of low carb living!
So welcome to Seasonal Low Carb! My biggest hope is that Seasonal Low Carb will make low carb living Less Work and More Yum for you and your family! Let me know the ways that Seasonal Low Carb can help support your low carb goals- all suggestions and ideas are welcome!
