When it comes to sticking to a low-carb diet, you might find yourself limiting your meals to just salads. The good news it that you don’t have to! The following meals are great options when you’re in a salad rut and want to try something new without compromising your health goals. Cutting down on carbs doesn’t mean you have to stick to dull lunches, so check out these creative low-carb lunches and let us know what you think!
Avoid a carb-heavy lunch like pasta or a sandwich with this light spinach salad with tomato and shrimp for your protein. This option is great because you won’t experience that post-lunch slump from a blood sugar spike that makes you crash.
There’s nothing better than pomegranate in the summer. This pomegranate sweet potato and quinoa salad is the perfect, light pick-me-up to replace a heavy lunch.
No refined carbs here! Replace your usual sandwich or wrap with this cilantro lime pork lettuce wrap, a light and delicious alternative without the terrible carb guilt!
Take a break from pasta and mix it up with these vegetable fried rice noodles. Pasta is often made from process white flour that’s stripped of all the good stuff — fiber, minerals and vitamins. No thank you!
