PIN Easy Healthy Low Carb Recipes
Ya’ll have been asking for more low carb recipes lately, so you know what time it is?
I’ve complied 45 SUPER simple and healthy, gluten free low carb recipes, from breakfast to dessert and EVERYTHING in between. We’re talking snacks, dinner and side dishes TOO!
What is the low carb diet?
But first, let’s explain what a low carb diet is. It is exactly like what it sounds like: a diet where you eat a higher lever of proteins and fats than carbs. Typically carbs in the form of sugary foods, pastas and breads are reduced, with the focus on real food with protein and natural fats and vegetables. Some studies have shown a low carb diet to aid in weight loss and improve general health markers.
Personally, I do not follow a low carb diet. I prefer to approach diet in a balanced way – eating proteins, carbs and fats at every meal and allowing myself sugar treats every so often! However, as I said, this is something YOU guys ask for and I like to try to help where I can, even if it’s not the exact way I eat 🙂
Low Carb Baking Ingredient Staples
Savory recipes (like dinner recipes) are pretty easy to make low carb without having to buy any kind of special ingredients. However, once you get to baking, things get more tricky! To get your going into the world of low carb baking, I’ve complied a list of the ingredients I think you should have in your pantry as staples:
- Erythritol Sweetener
- Coconut Flour
- Almond Flour
- Xantham Gum
- Stevia Sweetened Chocolate Chips
- Coconut Oil
The Best 3 Ingredient Low Carb Snack
This is sort of weird/embarrassing but WHATEVER. I am going to share with you one of the easiest low carb snack recipes that I love. I don’t love it because it’s low carb (since I don’t follow the diet) but I love it because, although it sounds weird, it tastes YUMMY.
This is what my roommate and I affectionately call “Taylor’s Ham Snack.”
You literally wrap a dill pick and cheddar cheese in a slice of deli ham. I know you’re probably questioning my “food blogger skillz” now that you know what one of my favorite, stupid-easy snacks are. BUT, do not knock it until you try it. IT’S SO GOOD.
Taylor's Ham Snack
The simplest, yummiest keto friendly snack EVER.
- 1 Slice Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Dill pickle
- 1 Slice Deli Ham (nitrate free)
Lay the cheese and pickle on top of the deli ham and roll up.
