Low Carb Dinner Swap

11 Aug

I love carbs. I also know how important they are for energy and full, defined muscles. However, sometimes tossing our grain go-tos for higher fat options will help us regulate our blood sugar levels, increase our satiety and overall, change our body composition.

Below is a quick and delicious low-carb friendly meal:

    Sounds good. I have recently discovered the wonders of cauliflower. It is so versatile. You blitz it up and it can replace rice or couscous. Amazing.

      Yes! Great point. I have heard of using a spirilizer for noodles too (but might be better with zucchini). Have you tried cauliflower mashed potatoes?

        No I haven’t. Sounds interesting. I do have a spirilizer that I use for zucchini
