calculator Calculating Net Atkins Count™


  • 1 head, large (6-7" dia) Cauliflower
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 4 tbsp Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce
  • 3 tsp Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 1 1/3 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 1/2 oz Blue or Roquefort Cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Cut the cauliflower into smaller florets and drizzle with the olive oil. Roast on a baking sheet for 35-40 minutes, or until tender.
  3. When cauliflower has about 10 minutes left to roast, warm a large skillet over medium heat. Add the hot wing sauce and Sriracha to the pan and cook until bubbling and reduced to a paste, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the butter and vinegar.
  4. When the cauliflower is done roasting, add it to the skillet with the sauce and toss to evenly coat all the cauliflower. Serve immediately with blue cheese sprinkled on top.

Cooking Tip

For added creaminess and to cool the heat, combine the blue cheese with a couple tablespoons of sour cream.

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
