30 Quick & Easy Low Carb Meals

posted in: Ketogenic Diet

We choose to keep our meals simple, we have a few core foods with some auxiliary sides we rotate into our diet. The simplicity of our meals endures long periods of time because we like it – the food is tasty and nourishing. After years of experimenting with different diets, we have found something that works for us – why complicate it? But this philosophy is our own and I know not everyone feels the same way. So in efforts to help keep your interest in good tasting, nourishing low carb meals here are 30 quick and easy low carb meals for you!

Eating a simple diet has its benefits. We know what we like and how we like it, this allows us to keep kitchen prep to a minium. I prep food in bulk by making batches of fermented sauerkraut and amounts of steamed or roasted veggies large enough to have leftovers. Personally, I prefer to live outside the kitchen. I would much rather spend time playing with my three-year-old than plan and prep elaborate meals. You can see our pragmatic approach in our favorite low-carb, ketogenic DHA rich breakfast, which I also sometimes eat for dinner. There are a few flavorful accents we add to our food but enjoying simple meals is part of our simple lifestyle.

Low-Carb Meals Made with Chicken

There may be slight adjustments to these recipes that you can make to increase their nutrient and taste levels. Some recipes call for skinless chicken, if I were to make it I would surely use chicken with the skin. Try swapping chicken for other poultry meats like turkey, duck, goose, or quail.
