Zero Carb desserts are non-optimal and not one of us veterans eat these, but for people starting out, who are craving or just need something different, Zero Carb desserts are a much better option than carb filled desserts that will derail your progress. These are a great treat for kids.
Holidays are right around the corner and notorious for throwing people off their diets. With proper planning there is no reason you can’t stay on your Zero Carb diet throughout the holiday season.
Holiday dinners typically involve a main dish of meat so that part is easy, but what about side dishes, appetizers and desserts?! If you are hosting a holiday party you can easily make ZC dishes with a few low carb sides for guests and they wouldn’t miss the high carb stuff. If you are attending a holiday party be sure to stuff yourself with as much meat as you can eat before you go to the party. That should prevent you from wanting to snack on high carb foods. You can always bring a Zero Carb appetizer to snack on so you don’t feel left out.
You can add or substitute any other seafood you like such as white fish or lobster.

Where I live, cryovaced beef ribs are cheap. They don’t look like they have a lot of meat on them, but I usually get full on 3. This rack of ribs cost $9.77 and it fed my husband and I. There were 3 ribs left over that I will eat for breakfast.
I use an electric smoker (LOVE it), turn it on 220 for 5.5 hours.
Soak 1/2 cups of you favorite wood chips, I used these this time. It is a mixture of different wood types. (I don’t like a heavy smoke flavor, so I only use 1/2 cup once in the beginning.) Here is a link to a variety pack of wood chips. Great way to test out different flavors.

This will be a very light, delicate “bread.” It doesn’t hold up well if you make the sandwich ahead of time; it gets soggy. It is best to assemble the sandwich when you are going to eat it.
This recipe can be doubled easily. Just use two baking sheets.
