You all have been wondering when it’s time for a healthy low carb diet? Roundup time!
Low carb cooking has never been easier with the plethora of new low carb cookbooks out on the market. Rounding up the best low carb cookbooks is the goal of this article. I have compiled 45 super low carbs, delicious, and surprisingly healthy, low carb recipes from breakfast to dessert, everything in between.
Let me say right up front that these recipes are not “low carb”, nor do they contain any carbohydrates at all. They are truly “low carb”, as in they use no carbs whatsoever, but are still considered “healthy”. Some people believe that the term low carb is used loosely here, because some people will eat anything, even if it contains zero carbs at all, and they can do that while still eating “low carb” foods. They also may call something “low carb” even if it does not contain carbs at all.
For instance, one author recommends using coconut milk instead of butter and using pureed low fat coconut meat instead of regular meats. However, coconut milk is actually an excellent alternative to butter (and to any fat, for that matter) when cooking with fresh coconut milk.
You can use any kind of coconut milk, although it’s best to use organic and unrefined coconut milk if you can, because it is just as good and has much more healthful benefits than regular coconut milk. If you can find organic raw coconut oil in your area, try it instead. That’s the stuff I use for my recipes.
Coconut oil has many benefits for the body and heart. It helps prevent heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and even obesity. There are some health problems that coconut oil also cures, such as liver disease and hypertension. All that and more, along with its numerous other health benefits, it’s truly the perfect food for your body!
Another great low carb recipe is tofu. I don’t really care what kind of tofu you have, but it should be firm and moist and not dry or crumbly. It can be baked, grilled, boiled, broiled, fried or steamed and it’s great in desserts and other delicious dishes.
There are even plenty of low carb recipes for desserts too, such as chocolate cake, banana pudding, ice cream, and custard. There’s also plenty of low carb recipe for breads and pastas, like quiche and whole wheat pizza crust.
These are just a few low carb recipes with grains, but there are many others, including brown rice and whole grain breads and pasta. You can use rice or whole wheat tortillas, but make sure the flour is whole grain and not all-purpose flour.
As long as you’re on a low carb diet and eating healthy, you’ll enjoy a wide variety of foods and plenty of vitamins and nutrients that you might not get on other types of diets. For example, if you are eating vegetables you’ll get plenty of potassium and calcium, iron, magnesium, sodium, phosphorus and calcium and sodium. Potassium and iron are needed by your body for regulating your blood pressure and heart rate.
Magnesium is helpful in fighting heart disease. Phosphorus helps make your bones strong, especially in growing children. And phosphorus helps control high cholesterol.
Magnesium can help treat osteoporosis, arthritis, depression, fatigue, anxiety, and anxiety. Calcium is very important for bone and teeth development. It’s also important for controlling your cholesterol.
Finally, sodium and potassium are both important in maintaining a low carb diet. Both sodium and potassium help regulate your blood pressure and also for helping your body to retain water. Sodium helps reduce muscle cramps, bloating, cramping, nausea, and gas. Potassium is very useful in regulating blood sugar levels.
