Low Carb Recipes to Tingle the Taste Buds

by ironparadisefitness

Low carb recipes are usually uninventive salads and lifeless chicken and steamed veg.  Until now!...

The best nutrition plan is one that you can stick to.  So if you have a plan that's full of foods that you hate, how long are you going to stick to it?  And when it comes to following a low carb diet, that compliance becomes even more tricky.  Because low carb recipes are typically uninspiring and make that diet even harder to stick to.  With that in mind, I've got a couple of low carb recipes for you that are packed full of flavour.

So with these recipes we're going to focus on high protein and low carb. Firstly (and most importantly) these dishes are low low in carbs, which is great for those of you that are limiting carb intake.  For instance a Keto diet or something similar.

And even if you're on a bulk these dishes are great.  Because you can just add a serving of rice, or maybe even a naan bread for some variety. And hey presto you've got an awesome couple of meals to throw in your Tupperware.

The recipes I've got for you today are designed to be really simple to make and add a big hit of flavour to keep you coming back for more.

So without further ado, let's dive straight into Meal Prep Sunday and let's get cooking...
