Kat and I have been eating low carb for a few years now and it has been the best choice I have ever made when it comes to dieting and staying healthy. We’ve picked up a lot of tips and tricks along the way that make eating low carb easy and today we’re sharing some of our favorite easy low carb recipes along with the low carb substitutions that make them just as good as the original recipe. Of course we indulge in carbs every once and while. We are only human and those little suckers are pretty tempting especially during the holidays. If you want to try eating low carb my number one tip is to start out slow by cutting out “bad” carbs like sugar, flour, rice, and pasta. It becomes much easier as your body gets used to it and when you’re ready you can cut out sugary fruits and vegetables that are also high in carb. Since I began eating low carb I have lost about 65 pounds. I did not and do not exercise because I truly hate it with every ounce of my being.
Eating low carb is the easiest way for me to stay healthy and keep the weight off. I have made all of the low carb recipes below and they have received the Melinda stamp of approval.
Here is an easy low carb recipe that the whole family will enjoy. Use leftover ham from the holidays! This Low Carb Cauliflower Chicken Cordon Bleu is easy to put together for busy weeknight meals and you can even take it to work for lunch the next day.
This Turmeric Chicken Salad is great to pack for lunch. You can eat it over a bed of lettuce or spread it on cucumber slices. Either way it is a delicious, filling recipe that you should always have on hand.
This simple Roasted Tomato and Asparagus Salad recipe is tossed in a simple balsamic vinaigrette. It makes a simple healthy lunch, or a great side for a light dinner. Easy low carb recipes can’t get any easier than this. Top this with a chicken breast for a tasty meal.

If you haven’t tried zucchini noodles yet, you are missing out! Most grocery stores now sell them already spiralized. It is much more cost effective to spiralize them yourself though.

I love salmon already but this Pistachio Crust adds crunch and a delicious flavor. You can do this to chicken or pork too.
