This Chimichurri Marinated Chicken is so easy to make, ultra flavorful, healthy, delicious and low carb. Making this recipe requires only about 5 minutes of prep time and about 30 minutes in the oven. This is a fresh and tasty dish that has only 3 net carbs and is great when served with so many different sides. I like to enjoy it with a salad, fresh veggies or some potatoes when I am not counting carbs.
As a kid, I was a very picky eater. Broccoli was one of the only vegetables I would really eat, and even then, it had to be smothered in cheese. A whole lot has changed as far as the foods I will eat, but one thing hasn’t changed – I still love broccoli! This Bacon Dijon Broccoli Salad is quick and easy to make, and it is loaded with some of the best ingredients around (broccoli, cheese and BACON!). This salad just happens to be low carb and Keto friendly (only 4 net carbs), but it is a delicious recipe that anyone will enjoy!
I have been making this Easy Fresh Aji Picante for years and my husband and I love to put it on just about anything! I originally found this recipe on Skinny Taste. If you have not checked out all of the amazing recipes that Gina has created at skinnytaste.com, you are really missing out! Making this Colombian hot sauce is as simple as blending the ingredients together. It takes only a few minutes, and the result is a perfectly spicy and fresh sauce that is incredibly versatile. This is a naturally carb free, dairy free, gluten free, vegan and vegetarian sauce, so it is great for most diets!
As much as I love to cook (and I really do!) I really have a problem taking the time to prepare myself a decent lunch most days. Honestly I often fail to even eat a decent meal until dinnertime. Don’t get me wrong, I always manage to eat during the day. Too often though, I find myself grabbing something quick (like a bunch of cookies from a recipe I was testing – don’t judge me!) to hold me over. Recipes like this Easy Avocado Chicken Salad are perfect for me, because I can make it one day, and have a healthy lunch all ready to go for a couple more days. It is loaded with chicken, bacon, avocado, tomatoes, red onion and a simple light dressing and it is delicious!
I have never really been a huge breakfast person. It takes me quite a while to get going in the morning, and I frankly don’t even want to put forth the effort to make myself a meal that early. My kids, on the other hand, don’t feel the same way. They wake up “STARVING TO DEATH” every single day. These Bacon & Cheese Egg Bites are great because I can make them on Sunday, stick them in the fridge, and then grab a few and heat them up for a quick and sustaining weekday breakfast. An added bonus is that these egg bites only have 1 carb per serving, making them great for any kind of low carb lifestyle.
Finding a recipe that is quick, easy, healthy, delicious AND low carb can seem almost impossible at times. This Easy Caprese Stuffed Chicken is all of those things! Making this is as simple as cutting a pocket in a few chicken breasts, stuffing them with some fresh ingredients, seasoning them and baking them. This chicken pairs well with some fresh vegetables, a salad, rice or fresh pasta.
If you have never had shishito peppers, they are these fantastic little peppers with a mild, sweet and just slightly smoky flavor. Shishitos have a pretty thin skin, so they cook relatively quickly, and because of their convenient size, they are a great bite-sized snack. This Easy Blistered Shishito Peppers recipe will only take about 10 minutes, and it only has 5 simple ingredients. We like to enjoy these as a snack, appetizer or side dish. This recipe also has only 60 calories and 4 net carbs per serving, so it is both delicious and healthy!
I love making and serving guacamole because it is so quick and easy to make, but it is also loaded with flavor, healthy and low carb. This Fresh Homemade Spicy Guacamole is one of my favorite appetizers to serve at parties or even just to whip up as a quick snack for my family. It’s time to pour some margaritas, grab some chips and dig in!
What is your favorite side dish? I mean – like your VERY favorite. You know if you could only have one side dish for the rest of your life, what would it be? For me, it would be mashed potatoes – no question! As much as I love mashed potatoes, they aren’t always the most waistline friendly food. Not to worry! I have an alternative! This Easy and Healthy Mashed Cauliflower is a great low calorie (176 per serving) and low carb (5 net per serving) option, and to be honest, it tastes pretty darn good!
Jalapeño Poppers are definitely one of my favorite appetizers, so I decided to take those flavors and create a Jalapeño Popper Chicken Casserole. This casserole consists of a creamy seasoned chicken mixture, jalapeños, melted cheddar and crispy bacon. It only takes a few minutes to put this dish together, and after 20 minutes in the oven you have a delicious cheesy meal ready to go. This casserole also happens to be low carb (only 4 net!) and Keto friendly! This is great served with some fresh veggies, a side salad, rice or mashed potatoes or cauliflower.
