Healthy Food Choices – High in Proteins and Low in Carbs

Are you looking for new recipes to wow your guests at an upcoming dinner party? Or maybe you are considering cooking healthier meals for you and your family and need some new recipe ideas. Either way, you can’t go wrong with a menu that is high in protein and low in carbs.
Your family will probably not even realize you are feeding them healthy meals. They’ll just know that your meals are delicious!
The first thin to consider is the ingredients that go into your meals. There are some carbs that you should avoid because they won’t contribute to a high protein, low carb lifestyle. Carbs that should be avoided include white rice, crackers, pasta, and jam.
Try to get in the habit of starting your meals with a salad. Almost any salad will do. The key is to have a mixed salad with lots of raw veggies. Top it off with some fruit or a bit of cheese for color and flavor. Be careful with salad dressing. Go light or use a nice vinaigrette instead.
When selecting veggies for your salad, keep in mind the likes and dislikes of your family. Even the most finicky child probably likes some raw veggies. It won’t do anyone any good to serve a healthy salad that they refuse to eat!
Meat is an excellent source of protein and should be a part of all of your low carb, high protein meals. There are countless meat variations you can choose. Include chicken, fish, and even pork and beef in your entrees.
Fish is one of the best meats for you, so try to include it a few times a week. There are many different types of fish that you can prepare, including tuna, salmon, and probably many your family has not even tried.
Keep the portions of meat moderately sized, and avoid frying meat which adds fat.
