Carbs... replacement foods
Have you tried the cauliflower recipes like cauliflower rice or twice baked cauliflower (all gooey with sour cream, cheese and bacon bits)?

Atkins 40
You eat 40 net carbs/day. 15 must come from "foundation vegetables" and the other can come form any healthy source (no sugar, white flour, etc.) There is some info on the Atkins web site (so you don't have to buy the book). It is Sharon Osborn's diet.
