Low Carb Keto Chicken, Shrimp and Sausage Gumbo
Greetings low carb travelers.
I’m here today to share two great things I found this morning. One is a recipe for gumbo, and the other is a commercial starring someone you may recognize.
It’s a 1979 commercial for Pabst Blue Ribbon. (below)
And that good looking fellow you see is none other than a young Patrick Swayze. You see him getting ready for a hot date, donning a flashy scarf and giving his beautiful hair one final toss. He meets up with his date, played by his real wife, and they head straight to the disco. His dancing skills are in full display in this commercial. It almost makes me want to drink a Pabst Blue Ribbon. Almost.
I’ll tell you what I do want to drink though- this bowl of low carb chicken, shrimp and sausage gumbo.
This stuff is off the hook!
It’s nice and spicy and full of protein. I based the recipe on a gumbo I found in Cook’s Illustrated. But instead of thickening the soup with white flour, I subbed in low carb arrowroot powder. That brought the carb count down to just 7g net carb per bowl. I just had a bowl for lunch and added in some coconut cauliflower rice. Boy was it good. Well worth the time it takes to make this big ole pot of gumbo.
