Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Cocktail Meatballs (IF)

In partnership with FaveHealthyRecipes, I continue in my mini-series of New Year’s Eve party recipe ideas with these low carb cocktail meatballs. One of my viewers, Laurie “Avalanche,” is doing dairy-free low carb plan, so I exchanged the Parmesan cheese I normally use in my binders for pork rinds. Pork rinds work really well as a binder in your meatloaf or meatball recipes and would be fine for any phase of Atkins. Best of luck to all those who are just starting the diet today or tomorrow, and if you have any questions, please be sure to ask.

For even more low carb friendly entree recipes, FaveHealthyRecipes has a large section of low carb snack ideas. ( http://www.favehealthyrecipes.com/lowcarb)
