Really struggling to fill my cheap carb gap!

what is the gap between?
some ideas:
Cauliflower is good instead of mashed potato (even DH liked my low carb cottage pie)
carrot batons as a snack
courgettes instead of pasta
pork scratchings instead of crisps

Oh & instead of sandwiches try lettuce leaves rolled up with cheese &/or ham or tuna mayo or cream cheese with smoked salmon trimmings...

Eggs (hard-boiled is a good snack, or egg mayo).
Smoked salmon trimmings, or tinned fish like mackerel or sardines
Yes to pork scratchings though there really is a limit to how many of those you can eat!

It's not easy though!

Celeriac or swede instead of potatoes
