How to Calculate Atkins Net Carbs

Atkins Net Carbs = Total Carbohydrates – Fiber – Sugar Alcohols/Glycerin (if applicable)



  • 2 tablespoon Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 8 oz, raw (yield after cooking) Bacon
  • 1 cup, shredded Gruyere Cheese
  • 1 Tbsp Organic High Fiber Coconut Flour
  • 0 3/4 tsp Thyme
  • 0 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 0 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 32 oz, raw, yields Turnip


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.  Prepare a 9-inch glass pie pan by greasing with butter (about 1/2 Tbsp; use remaining to grease pan in step 4).  Set aside.  A metal pan can be used; turn oven down to 400°F.  
  2. Cook bacon in a pan over medium-high heat until crisp, drain on paper towels, allow to cool, then chop.  Place bacon in a small bowl and add cheese, coconut flour, thyme, salt, and pepper.  Toss together then set aside.  
  3. Thinly slice turnips into rounds using a mandoline.  Arrange slices beginning in the center and working out to the edges so that they overlap slightly.  Sprinkle 1/4 of the bacon mixture and drizzle with the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons butter.  Repeat three times with remaining turnips and bacon mixture ending with a layer of turnips.    
  4. Lightly butter the bottom of another pie pan, fill pan with pie weights and set it on top of the final layer of turnips.  Bake on a sheet pan (to catch any drippings) for 55 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown.  Remove top pie pan and continue to cook another 10-12 minutes until the top is browned.  Serve immediately by loosening the edges and flipping onto a serving platter.  Cut into 12 equal pie-wedge servings.
