Low carb recipes to help you lose weight

easy low carb dinner recipes

If you’re trying to lose weight than you’re most likely in need of some food options that aren’t bland. Here are some low carb recipes to fire up your taste buds.

Most of the low carb food options we will present here at Body Spartan will also have a good amount of fat in them. That’s because we know that a keto diet is one of the most effective low carb diet’s for losing weight.  Fat literally incinerates off your body on this low carb, high fat, diet.  With under 30 grams of carbs a day, after about a week, your body will start to burn fat for fuel, instead of carbohydrates.  The result is a shredded, lean, healthy body.

Low carb recipe for breakfast

This awesome egg breakfast has 60 grams of protein, 38 grams of fat, and trace carbs (less than 10).

What you need:

  • 5 whole eggs, scrambled
  • 3 Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage Links
  • 3 Kirkland Turkey Sausage Strips
  • A handful of green beans
  • 3 sauce pans

Low carb recipes

The tricky part is timing and not burning anything. However, if you are attentive, you can easily accomplish this.  You’re total cooking time should be about 8 minutes.

In all saucepans, use an olive oil cooking spray to make a nice coat of oil to avoid food sticking to the pan. Then in one saucepan, place the bacon strips and the sausage and use medium-high heat.

In another saucepan, add a thin layer of water at the bottom, then add your green beans and cook on high with a lid.  The water will boil and steam the green beans. A little Himalayan sea salt sprinkled on top will give them a nice taste.

Finally, in a third saucepan, add your whole, scrambled eggs.  I like to use Himalayan sea salt and pepper on these.

Cook the eggs until scrambled, the bacon and sausage until cooked thoroughly (according to the package instructions – about 8 minutes), and the green beans until the desired texture is achieved.  All this can be done in about 8 minutes for each sauce pan.

Serve on a plate together as shown.  You can add salsa or Sriracha to your eggs for a little extra taste and/or spice.
