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.

These grilled shrimp are easy and delicious. Simply coat the shrimp with sauce, and grill 2-3 minutes per side. Whenever I make these grilled shrimp, I’m reminded that “fast food” does not have to equal “junk food!” Click for the recipe

Korean Beef

This flavorful Korean beef recipe is ready in less than 30 minutes. It’s made with pre-sliced sirloin steak and does not require marinating the beef. Simply stir-fry the beef, add the sauce, garnish and serve. I like to add cooked and dried shirataki noodles to the skillet to absorb the sauce, but you can skip the noodles and serve this Korean beef over steamed rice. Click for the recipe

A great option for a quick and healthy weeknight dinner, this nori wrapped salmon is ready in 20 minutes. Click for the recipe
