Some reduced carb diet guidlines:
* Make low carbohydrate bread crumbs for deep fried foods.
Although you can possibly buy low carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can make them at home by using reduced carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is simply toast the low carbohydrate bread in a preheated oven on a sheet of cookie paper. Once it is quite hard and crispy, whizz it in your food mill.
