Breakfast

While breakfast is typically an easy meal, especially since pretty much everyone loves eggs, bacon, and sausage…am I right?! However, if you are anything like me, you do not want to get up and cook. I can do scrambled eggs in the microwave with meat I cooked over the weekend mixed in but I have loads of pre-made breakfasts that are so tasty! If you make the pre-made, it also makes morning clean up a breeze because you are just reheating. So here are my faves, my go-to breakfasts:

Bacon Cheddar Eggs Cups

We especially love this method for breakfast. Most people these days are getting up early to hit the gym or get into work early so, naturally, there is a loss of time to fill up with a hearty breakfast. That’s where these bacon egg cups come in for the win! We keep it pretty simple with this recipe while still amping up on the flavor and macros to get your day started off just right!

Sausage And Egg Breakfast Casserole

When you follow a low carb, LCHF or ketogenic diet, you find that you end up eating a lot of eggs. Eggs for breakfast. Eggs for lunch. Even eggs for dinner. So you search for creative options to give you some variety with your low carb recipes.

I like to use eggs sausage and cheese to make an easy breakfast casserole or a breakfast strata. Depending on what you add to it, it can work for any meal and really you have a limitless variety of meal options. Plus it serves a lot and is very filling so you can turn it into multiple meals or serve the whole family for a single meal.

Keto Breakfast biscuits hugging gooey, melty cheese and breakfast sausage. Perfect for those who are not a fan of eggs! Freeze and eat all week. This recipe is made with a version of fathead dough. I am sure you have heard of it! If you haven’t, it is a low carb and keto friendly, gluten free version of dough that works great for pizza, roll, bread and of course biscuits! Fathead dough uses melted mozzarella cheese as the “gluten” to hold the dough together. The flour is typically almond or coconut.

You will not miss the hash browns.

A paleo low carb English muffin recipe that’s soft and buttery inside, crusty on the outside. These gluten-free English muffins are easy to make in 2 minutes, with 5 ingredients!

You know a recipe is good when you plan out several meals to have during the week, and instead you just keep making the same simple food over and over. That’s what happened here. I started by trying to make gluten-free English muffins low carb. I was happy that they turned out to be paleo English muffins, too. And they were so good, I just kept wanting them over and over! In fact, I made this low carb English muffin recipe for breakfast every day this week.

They were that addicting, seriously. Every. Single. Day.

Not only is this quiche very high in protein and very low in calories, it only requires three ingredients and could not be easier to make. It’s also absurdly delicious, regardless of how ridiculously healthy and easy it is.

Also you’d be hard pressed to find a dish that can beat these stats. Where else can you get a breakfast that is 65 calories, 1g of net carbs, 11g of protein, and actually freakin’ delicious?

Nowhere. That’s where.

My favorite keto breakfast sandwich is low in carbs, high in healthy fats and off the charts in flavor! The sausage on the outside is the perfect touch to make you not miss the bread at all! This high fat meal will keep you full for a long time.

Lunch

Lunch also tends to be convenience items. Whether you are at work, or a busy mom, you need easy. I’ve compiled a week of what I think are easy, doable lunches and these happen to be favorites of mine. I find that if I have simple grabable items, I’ll be less likely to indulge in the naughty ones.
My all-time favorite sub sandwich has always been an Italian sub. Something about that combo of meats and provolone with a simple oil and vinegar drizzle is just perfect. And now I can eat it any day of the week and have no guilt, plus it fits in perfectly with my current keto needs.
Don’t you just love the flavors of Greek foods? I love the lemon, the dill, the red onion, and more. Basically if it has the word “Greek” attached to it, I want in. This year, in an attempt to eat better, and stay on top of meals so I don’t feel as much need to snack, or binge on junk, I have started making some meal prep bowls. One of the ones I made was this Greek Chicken Meal Prep Bowls from Damn Delicious. It was delicious. I made it a few more times, and changed it slightly by adding a few things to the marinade, etc. But I loved it so I had to share it.
These Buffalo Chicken Celery Sticks are totally addictive – and if you’re looking for a low carb snack or lunch this is the recipe you need.
Sure- nachos taste delicious, but they probably don’t rank high on the list of nutritious, wholesome recipes, especially when you’re trying to eat healthy! However, you can satisfy your cravings for this classic Tex-Mex snack without worrying about your waistline by subbing in bell peppers for ordinary tortilla chips. This recipe for Bell Pepper Nacho Boats calls for delicious ingredients, like lean ground meat, savory spices, juicy salsa, and melted cheddar cheese.
For me, I just need to clear the food out of my sight. Getting out of the kitchen will help with that. And low carb soups are an easy way to get back on track.
This Avocado Cucumber Egg Salad is a wonderful version of a classic egg salad brought to you by Will Cook For Smiles. Everything is made better with avocado and in this case, there is creaminess from avocado and a little crunch from cucumber added to this delicious egg salad.

Skinny Chicken Fajita Soup is a zesty, low fat, gluten free meal with an easy low carb option! This skinny soup recipe is exactly what you need.If you love tortilla soup, Skinny Chicken Fajita Soup offers the same type of comforting Mexican appeal, with a unique taste and texture.

Top it with reduced fat cheese, scallion, and fresh avocado, for a dinner that will make you say OLE!

Dinner

Typically with “diets”, you’ll be cooking two separate meals to accommodate your family. However, everyone will love these recipes unless there is an ingredient in one they don’t like. Don’t act like there is a change. I never said I was “dieting” because it’s regular food. Tasty food!

Mexican Stuffed Avocado

Fast and Easy – 3 Ingredients!

To pull off this impressive stuffed avocado recipe all you’re going to need is 3 ingredients. You’ll need an avocado, some cheese, and our Mexican shredded chicken! Fine, maybe you don’t need our shredded chicken, but it sure does take these stuffed avocados to the next level!

 

“FATHEAD” Pizza

Love pizza, but not the carbs?!🍕

You’ve gotta try making Fat Head pizza dough out of cheese and almond flour! It tastes great, is keto-friendly, low carb, gluten-free, and happens to be super simple method using just a few main ingredients. Plus, I like that the texture is chewy like normal pizza dough, and sturdy enough to pick up a piece to eat!

Chicken Enchilada Zucchini Boats

These unbelievably delicious and perfectly flavorful Chicken Enchilada Zucchini Boats! With these you save on carbs by swapping out the classic tortilla wrapped enchiladas with hallowed out zucchini boats instead. I was actually really surprised myself by how much I truly loved these! I was so skeptical at first and I thought there’s no way I could ever trade in a classic, cheese loaded, pure comfort food enchilada for a healthier version. Indeed was I wrong.

Cheesy Chili Spaghetti Squash Casserole 

This casserole recipe has a spaghetti squash base, then a layer of cheese, a layer of sour cream, a layer of chili, and then more cheese (of course.) It’s hearty and satisfying, but not so heavy that it will weigh you down.

I like mine sprinkled with cilantro, but that’s completely optional. You can also serve it alongside some salsa, additional sour cream, and guacamole or slices of avocado.

Creamy Ham and Broccoli Casserole

A delicious and creamy casserole filled with ham, broccoli, and a burst of flavors. This recipe is low carb, gluten free, and a Trim Healthy Mama “S” fuel. This casserole is great for an quick and easy week-night meal, but yet it is decadent enough for a more impressive meal.

 

 

 

 

Tuna Zoodle Casserole

Paleo Tuna Green Chile Zoodle Casserole. An easy, paleo, zucchini noodle casserole that’s Whole 30 approved, high protein, and low carb. Wholesome yet healthy, this dish can feed a family! A great way to use your spiralizer and boost your nutrition.

Easy Jalapeno Shrimp Veggie Bake

Spicy jalapeño shrimp veggie bake is low carb, grain free, and an easy to make recipe in under an hour! Seasonal vegetables, lean protein, herbs, and spices, all cooked in casserole dish even cast iron skillet. A better for you gluten free casserole with shrimp and veggies! A total crowd pleaser.
