Many health trends have come and gone over the years, but there is one that has stuck it out for the long-run. That’s right; we’re talking about cutting down on carbs. Some need to make dietary adjustments for a health condition while others want to balance out their diets. Whatever the case, you no longer have to worry about going hungry thanks to these dinners that you fill you up, but are low in carbs.
Turkey zucchini meatballs
Many of us love to grow zucchini at home. This meal is a great way to use up all that produce. Simply shred your vegetables and mix the zucchini with some turkey mince, a small spoonful of breadcrumbs, and a little ricotta cheese. These could be the juiciest meatballs you’ve ever enjoyed.
Pepper lasagne boats
This is just like lasagna, but made in peppers instead of using pasta! That’s right; layer your sauce into halved peppers and cover with cheese before placing them in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese is melted and good to go. It really is that simple.
Honey BBQ chicken skewers
If you want to cut down on carbs, then all you need to do is mix up your favorite honey BBQ sauce and lightly paste it over some chicken skewers before grilling for a few minutes on each side. Yes, there are some carbs in this meal, but they are significantly reduced. Serve with a side of steamed vegetables to complete this meal.
Steak and peppers are great for people looking to cut down on their carb intake. All you need to do is grill your meat and gently fry off your vegetables. Put down the tortillas and step away from the carbs. This recipe sees us use lettuce leaves in their place. Not only are they delicious, but the lettuce helps to add a little extra crunch to the dish, too.
Chicken and cauliflower rice
Sometimes, we just want a big bowl of rice. Thankfully, cauliflower can be the perfect alternative as the vegetable has a similar texture with a whole host more flavor. Adding grilled chicken and vegetables to the dish can help to flavor up the meal, while cauliflower rice can also be used as an alternative in many other fan-favorite recipes.
Asian chicken and sprouts
This recipe is so simple that it can be cooked up in no time. All you need to do is shred some brussel sprouts, grill and shred some chicken, and mix it all together with chopped Asian vegetables and stir fry sauce. Voila! It’s almost like having takeout, but oh-so-delicious and healthy instead.
