Low Carb Recipes

If you’re having trouble with your blood sugar, or if you need to lose weight but find that you’re unable to do it on the standard low-fat, high-carb diet, talk with your doctor about switching to a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. The recipes featured here typically contain 10 grams of net carbs per serving or less, making them suitable even for very low-carb diets.

Spicy Baked Meatballs

These baked meatballs truly are spicy! If you’re not into super-spicy food, try using just 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes.

Dinner doesn’t get any easier than slow cooker pulled pork. Quickly mix the barbecue sauce, pour over the pork, set and forget.

In this delicious low carb nachos recipe, pork rinds replace the tortilla chips. I usually serve this as a main course for four. If you serve it as an appetizer, it will easily feed six. Click for the recipe
