A Delicious Low Carb Diet Meal Plan

A low carb diet meal plan can be delicious but variety is the spice of life - use it to maintain this lifestyle change.

If you love eggs then breakfasts will be a breeze; poached, scrambled, fried….they are a low carb staple!

Breakfasts

  • Bacon & eggs on wholegrain toast
  • Prosciutto based quiches with smoked bacon, sundried tomato, basil and parsley
  • Chorizo frittata with chilli
  • Open grilled sardines on rye with fresh tomato and onion
  • Fried mushrooms with herbed sausages
  • Asparagus and goats cheese frittata 
  • Spicy lamb ‘pancakes’ 

Snacks

Having ready-made portions on hand will take the guess work out of snacking.  Your appetite may change gradually but keep in mind we often snack out of routine rather than genuine hunger. 

  • Marinated chicken wings
  • Ham or salami rolls
  • Devilled eggs
  • Cashew nuts
  • Protein balls
  • Smoked beef strips
  • Chicken skewers


Lunches

Use lean cuts of meat and include plenty of seafood when available.  If possible visit your local fish market and butcher for affordable specials. Also low carb does not mean low flavour, feel free to herb and spice things up as much as you like.

  • Lamb steaks with eggplant and hummus
  • Red salmon, egg & rocket salad with anchovies, bacon  & Cesar dressing 
  • Lentil, pancetta and spinach soup
  • Thai fish cakes with coriander & mint salad
  • Cajun chicken with avocado, lime and chilli salsa
  • Barbecued peri-peri pork with quick guacamole
  • Beef burgers with grilled eggplant and capsicum

Dinners

When seeking low carb vegetables remember leafy greens have the least amount and are rich in phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals, followed by stems and flowers (broccoli, asparagus, cauliflower, artichoke and mushrooms).  Others such as pumpkin, squash, avocado and tomato are next on the carbohydrate scale. 

  • Whole Roasted chicken with thyme and sage butter
  • Beef and mushroom teriyaki stir fry
  • Asian pork with wilted greens
  • Barbequed Cajun and paprika squid with avocado, sundried tomato and baby spinach salad with lemon and ginger dressing
  • Coconut and macadamia crusted fish with steamed asparagus
  • Braised beef with green beans in garlic butter
  • Chorizo, fetta and parsley stuffed squid with roast mushrooms basted in pesto sauce on a bed of baby spinach.

Desserts

Finding recipes that avoid sugar and still taste delicious has definitely become easier with many online recipe sites available. Diabetic networks in particular have a wealth of innovative dessert ideas including traditional sweets using sugar substitutes such as splenda or better still, stevia.

  • Toasted almond and coconut meringues
  • Light peach cobbler
  • Chocolate dipped pecans and strawberries
  • Sugar and crust free spiced pumpkin pie
  • Low Carb New York Ricotta Cheesecake
