This ultra-healthy option is a carb-free, effortless, and flavorful side dish that complements many dishes! If you’re seeking a lighter side dish without sacrificing taste, look no further; this Cauliflower Curry is the way! Curry Cauliflower Couscous is a great side dish, although I must clarify: there is no actual couscous. This recipe is simply blended cauliflower and does wonders for low-carb diet seekers. This white veggie side dish perfectly replaces couscous, bulgur, and rice without being packed with carbohydrates. Cauliflower vs. Rice I mean, rice is a beloved ingredient; I have nothing against it! However, sometimes, to lower our calories, we need to make some concessions, this cauliflower couscous being a good one!

Avocado Zucchini Pasta offers a fantastic gluten-free option to traditional pasta dishes. Zoodles, essentially zucchini strands created by grating them lengthwise, are paired with a delectable avocado pesto dressing and enhanced with sun-dried tomatoes—a delightful combination of flavours and textures. Avocado Zucchini Pasta is the new pasta (well…actually, non-pasta) in town. I see them everywhere; for guys who didn’t catch the “zoodle” vibe, it’s zucchini noodles. No gluten or wheat is in them, making them an excellent meal for fitting in our bikinis this summer or a low-carb diet. This was my first attempt to do those famous”zoodles,” no need to buy those big spiralizer machines to make them; I simply use a cheese grater, and it does the trick. It’s an easy, fast, healthy recipe but also creamy and tasty; the avocado pesto makes it stand out.

Braised Red Cabbage with Apples is a fantastic side dish for lowering carbs! This version is made with wine, butter, onions, bay leaf and many apples and goes well with a simple chicken breast and salsa verde. This Braised Red Cabbage with Apples side dish is low carb, tasty and easy to make; its overall flavour is sweet and sour, and let’s face it… it doesn’t hurt the eyes to look at it. I’ve used lean meat on top, chicken breast, with a Spanish salsa verde, but it could easily be a pork tenderloin. I always add rice, potato or pasta as sides to feel full, in other words, carbs. But lately, I’ve been trying to cut it out, and one of the best ways I’ve found was cabbage. I believe cabbage is more filling than most veggies and goes perfectly with any meat. Plus, you can easily change the aromas,…

This is a lovely imitation of a beloved meal turned into a carb-free dish! Plentiful, nonetheless, this zoodle or zucchini pasta will melt your heart! It is so simple to pull together; all you’ll need is cream, an egg yolk, sweet peas, parmesan and crisp bacon bits! Those Zoodle Carbonara with sweet peas are great with any creamy sauce, and why not give it a touch of crunch with the bacon bits? Carbonara sauce can be made the traditional way, which is without cream, just eggs, bacon, parmesan, and oil, or the sinful way, which involves cream. Since those zoodles are so healthy and light, let’s make the sauce the sinful way, should we? What is Zoodles? Zoodles is basically making spaghetti with zucchini, or courgette, they say, in Europe. Formed by sliding the veggie lengthwise on a cheese grater, a julienne mandoline or a spiralizer. The zucchini is simply…
