Bridal Shower Carb Free Menu Suggestions

i'm planning a brunch for my girlfriend's Bridal Shower and she's not eating carbs. I need help trying to figure out exactly what to have for the brunch other then fruit and veggie platter. any suggestions?

  1. Fish and salads to be very simple.

    1. I am a low carb queen! I would make a frittata. Something with spinach and feta perhaps? Also, I make radish hash browns alot. You should try those too. If you should offer fruit, make sure they are mostly berries which are lower in carbs. They also sell low carb vanilla yogurt in the grocery stores to serve along with the berries. Hope this helps. Here are some links to recipes:


      Radish hash browns:

      1. Perhaps a crustless quiche? Shrimp cocktail could also work nicely, or even kabobs with shrimp, pineapple, and red bell pepper. Individual flans or custards could work for dessert.

        1. Crab or shrimp salad served in martini glasses, deviled eggs, baba ganoush with red bell pepper strips for dipping, ham & cheese pinwheels

          1. I'm not understanding what carb-free means if she can have fruit and vegetables since they're mostly carbs, both complex and simple. With carb free, I'm thinking roast turkey, roast beef, shrimp, cheese. Maybe shrimp wrapped with bacon. Frico cups filled with eggs and prosciutto. Even shrimp cocktail sauce has sugars/carbs. Deviled eggs w/out mayo?

              The folks I know who are low-carbing now mean "no white" carbs -- no flours, pastas, potatoes, processed sugars.
