I try to avoid lunchmeats because I tend to keep eating and eating until I’m overfull lol. I do love pepperoni, though.
Some of my favorite meals, though are:
*Meatza (essentially, make meatball without the breadcrumbs, spread on a cookie sheet, bake 10 min at 450, then spread with toppings and broil until cheese is bubbly)
* Stir fries with chicken, shrimp or chunks of steak, whatever veggies I have on hand, with soy sauce & chili garlic sauce
*Roasts made in the crock pot
*Veggies roasted in the oven with minced garlic & olive oil or butter until the veggies caramelize
*”Salsa chicken”: chicken breasts dusted with taco seasoning, topped with salsa, baked for 30 minutes, then topped with cheddar & a dollop of sour cream
*”Carrot fries”: carrots sliced thin like fries, tossed in oil (I use bacon grease, but you can use EVOO) & salt, baked at 450 for 15-22 minutes. I usually serve these with horseradish mayo
*Julienned cabbage or zucchini, sauteed, then stir in red sauce, homemade ground sausage, and a little parmesan for “pasta”
*Bunless burgers with gourmet toppings
*”Fish sticks” or “chicken nuggets” made with almond flour (there are recipes online) and served with homemade dipping sauces
I love to try new recipes, and I like that finding something lower in carb is a challenge but usually ends up being delicious!
