Cut Carbs, Not Flavor

Low-carb diets are all about incorporating hearty proteins, healthy fats, and vibrant vegetables. Many people keep an eye on their carb count as a way to slim down. I’ve hand-selected 5 recipes that are not only low-carb, but can also be prepared in 30 minutes or less. No excuses for skipping the gym!

Chicken Champion

Balsamic Chicken


Chicken is your number one friend with a low carb diet. It’s filling, versatile, and most importantly, lean! I’ll bet you even have most of these ingredients for this recipe on hand--and don’t worry, there’s no need to marinate overnight. We recommend serving this over a bed of greens for a balanced meal.

Gorgeous Grain Bowl

Roasted Veggie Grain Bowl with Avocado and Hummus

Lemons and Basil

This hearty meal is full of protein and flavor. The cool avocado and hummus are an amazing compliment to the warm roasted vegetables. The high-protein content makes this a great post-workout meal.

Zesty Zoodles

Zoodle Primavera Pasta

The Fit Mediterranean

One of our favorite ways to cut the carbs is to use a veggie noodle alternative. Break out the spiralizer for this recipe to create zoodles to accompany this elegant sauce. Capers, pine nuts and parmesan cheese make this an italian lover’s dream.

Steaming Stew

Chili Tri-Color Cauliflower

The Fit Mediterranean

Cauliflower is a wonderful low-carb favorite thanks to its hearty texture. It can be used across all cuisines, and even as a replacement for rice. This vegetarian recipe is so simple to make and is perfect for a “chilli” day.

Pho-nomenal Pho

Pho with Zucchini Noodles

StreetSmart Kitchen

Last but certainly not least, we’ve got a pho recipe to knock your socks off. At first, I was skeptical that this dish could be achieved in 30 minutes, but the steps are actually so simple. We love the use of zucchini noodles to keep the carb count low. Give this heart-warming dish a try while it’s still soup weather!
