There’s no secret that I love a good smoothie. Smoothies are my favorite breakfast because they’re quick, easy, tasty, and you can take them on the go. But sometimes I don’t want to drink my breakfast, but I still want that fruity, healthy feel that I get from my favorite drinks. So instead, I make a smoothie bowl. This Banana Peach Smoothie Bowl is so versatile. Add your favorite fruit, nuts and other toppings to make it more filling. But if you are looking for a yummy drink instead, try this fabulous Mango Banana Smoothie!
Chicken is definitely my favorite source of protein. It’s yummy, versatile, and generally inexpensive. The one downside is that pretty much every chicken recipe that looks good to me is loaded with carbs. Or, at least, every chicken recipe that shows up randomly on the newsfeeds of my social media accounts. Regardless, in my attempt to keep a low-carb diet, I usually just end up eating chicken with… chicken. And seasoning and veggies, of course. Which is fine for a few days (or weeks…) in a row. But after a while, it can get pretty boring. So, after some hunting, I’ve found some great recipes to switch up my meals. If you, too, are sick of eating plain old chicken, you’ll love this list of 13 Low Carb Chicken Recipes. It’s full of recipes so delicious that you won’t miss the carbs at all!
One of the hardest things to get used to on a low carb diet is doing without desserts. Luckily, you don’t have to, with a few substitutions you can enjoy even rich chocolate sweets that will satisfy your cravings. You don’t even have to make a giant cake that will either get tossed out if no one else in the house is eating low carb or tempt you to overdose on it. You can enjoy your cake and eat it too with this easy and tasty single serve recipe for Double Chocolate Almond Low Carb Mug Cake. The carbs are low, especially for a chocolatey treat- around 5 net carbs, but it may differ a bit depending on the sweetener and almond milk you use. I go with sugar-free as much as possible to keep my carb count low.
