Easy low-carb meals may be great for losing weight, but they’re also great if you are fighting high blood sugar. According to the CDC, 37.3 million Americans, or about 1 in 10 people, have diabetes.
Here are a few simple low-carb meals I eat almost every week — some every day! I know it’s hard to walk away from your favorite carbs, but incorporating tasty meals like these into your mealtime routine just a few days a week may improve your health.
Get Started With These Four Easy Low-Carb Meals
Let’s give our bodies a break from the carbs and added sugar.
1. Low-Carb Vegetable Lasagna
I’m happy to share Jamie Spannhake’s fantastic low-carb vegetable lasagna that even carb addicts love. She replaces the lasagna noodles with thinly sliced zucchini. Zucchini makes a great stand-in because of its ability to soak in flavor and absorb oils, which spreads good taste throughout the dish. Plus, zucchini is low in calories (even lower than other green veggies like broccoli and brussels sprouts) and has loads of potassium and vitamin C.
2. Greek Chickpea and Feta Salad
If you enjoy Mediterranean-inspired dishes, you’ll love this delicious and easy-to-make salad, loaded with healthy ingredients. This version of Greek salad is one of the tastiest I’ve tried (I love chickpeas!). High in protein and fiber and low in carbs, it is great for a post-workout meal to speed up workout recovery!
3. Classic Greek Salad Is Easy and Tasty
Horiatiki Salata, the classic Greek Salad, is a low-carb meal and so good you may think you can’t make it at home. But you’re wrong. It’s an easy and tasty salad made from a few fresh ingredients. Most of the technique of this salad is just chopping. And not even high-level chopping. This isn’t Michelin Star kitchen work. This is busy family kitchen work. You just need a large purple onion, an English cucumber, a green pepper, a tomato, some capers, kalamata olives, and feta cheese.
4. Mark’s Anytime Granny Smith Apple and Almond Butter Breakfast
One of my favorite breakfast recipes combines Granny Smith apples, nut butter, and raw oats. All the fiber and protein in this recipe is a great way to start the day, but you can snack on this recipe anytime — mid-day, after school, or after dinner for dessert. (I know oats contain carbs, but a sprinkle adds texture and extra fiber to this quick breakfast.)
