Easy Tuna PattiesTuna patties are delicious, but they can run a little high on excess carbohydrates if they contain bread crumbs. This recipe calls for a little almond flour and coconut flour to remedy that situation. These are perfect for make ahead meals and work well for lunch in a pinchButter Baked King Trumpet MushroomsIf you can get your hands on these firms but exquisite mushrooms, please buy them and make this dish! What I love about king trumpet mushrooms is that they are hearty and mild in flavor. They pair well with any protein or on their own. I tried these on zoodles and also on shirataki fettuccine noodles. However, if you aren’t fond of low-carb eating, try it served on whole wheat pasta.Sheet Pan Bhindi MasalaI love okra, but not when it’s slimy. This sheet pan method will endure that this does not happen. Authentic bhindi masala requires a lot of effort when cooked on the stove top. The way we’re doing it will cut the cook time in half and you’ll have a delicious main or side dish for the week.Egg Salad Stuffed AvocadosThis is one of the easiest low-carb, healthy fat recipes you’ll ever make. The hardest part is finding the perfect avocado since they tend to go from unripe to discolored in 15 minutes. So, purchase the avocado either the same day or a day in advance before making this dish.Marinated ZucchiniThese quick and easy marinated zucchini slices can be cooked quickly on the grill, in a skillet, or baked in the oven. They are a great low carb, low glycemic side dish that goes well with pretty much any meal.Egg Salad Sweet Potato ToastTired of real toast and looking for a healthy, low glycemic alternative? Well, I've got your back. The egg salad offers a nice hit of protein along with a heart healthy dose of complex carbohydrates. This recipe is also great to serve as an appetizer and makes a great brunch item. Just have fun with it.Easy Peasy Overnight Chia PuddingI love chia pudding, but I prefer it with almond milk over coconut milk. This is a simple recipe for chia pudding that you can use to muffins, oatmeal, protein shakes, or just eat as is, before a workout. It’s a phenomenal fuel source and loaded with fiber.Coconut-Walnut Energy BallsThese little gems are great for a post workout snack or a quick pick me up between meals. One to two energy balls is all you'll need since they are quite high in calories. This is ideal for those who engage far more taxing exercise regimens. Not only are these chock full of fruit and nuts, but is also a good way to incorporate added fiber in your diet. Each energy ball has 3 net carbs.Bacon-Cheeseburger SaladThis is one of my favorite “go to” salads for when I have a serious cheeseburger craving, but don’t want to eat too much bread. I think you’ll love it too. This recipe has 3 net carbs per serving.Chicken Hummus SaladOne of the easiest Chicken salads to make. It’s hearty and filled with protein and fiber. Makes a great lunch. You can bake, poach, or even grill the chicken. The choice is yours.Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff Soup with Shiritaki NoodlesThis low carb soup is delightful. You will need a to jump on the Instant Pot bandwagon for this recipe though. Also, if you haven't tried shiritaki noodles yet, this is your chance. I find that the texture and flavor blends nicely into soups and does a fantastic job of keeping your carb count low and your stomach satisfied. Remember, never freeze shirataki noodles. They will dehydrate and ruin your soup. If you want to freeze this soup, do not add the noodles. You can do so after you have thawed it out. Shiritaki requires no cooking.Braised Pork Tenderloin and SauerkrautI absolutely adore this German staple and retooled it to fit a low carb lifestyle. While apples are absolutely wonderful in it, this fruit offers far too much sugar to be considered keto friendly. Those of you on a keto diet have already noticed a change in your tastebuds, haven't you? If you must have the sweet, add just a smidge of sugar substitute to the dish. Do not over do it.Marinated and Grilled Flat-Iron Steak with Blue Cheese CrumblesEvery once in a while I like to add a little steak into my dinner rotation. It isn't a common occurrence, but if you are a meat eater you might know exactly what I'm talking about. Not only is steak a good source of iron and protein, but this particular cut a little leaner than say, a ribeye. If you can't get your hands on a good quality flat-iron, then try skirt or flank steak. Marinate up to 24 hours if needed. You can use both an indoor and outdoor grill for this recipe or even a cast iron skillet in your oven.Greek Zoodle SaladIt's no secret that zucchini noodles are a great alternative to pasta. They have a much lower calorie count (much, much lower) and are the perfect way to sneak a little extra veg into your meals. If you own a spiralizer, you'll have access to fresh zoodles in no time. If not, you probably rely on prepackaged zoodles from your corner market. In this case, you'll need to follow one quick extra step listed below. Don't worry though, this light, refreshing Greek Zoodle Salad chock full inspiring ingredients like feta, kalamata olives, etc., is well worth the effort.
