    I am very pleased with your site presentations. But, I have one difficulty of understanding things in reading. I only suggest if videos made it would help a lot of members.
    Thank you.

    Why does this recipe contain such a huge amount of carbs? I don't understand

    If you look in the Nutrition info for this recipe you can see it is described as "Liberal low carb". It has 24g carbs per serving. I would guess that some people using the site want to eat more carbs than is usually given for a strict ketogenic diet, and this recipe might appeal to them. Also, I've no doubt that some people using the site are vegetarian and might be delighted to find a recipe which contains lots of vegetables.
