If you’re thinking of limiting your carbs, but can’t imagine life without bread, I promise you that there are plenty of tasty, high protein alternatives that taste delicious. Give a few of these high protein meals a try and you’ll be like, “bread who?” before you know it. It’s easy to eat low carb meals for breakfast, lunch or dinner and these are the recipes that prove it.
It’s not all just steak and eggs. These days high protein grains are becoming hugely popular, and are incredibly versatile when it comes to flavor profiles and preparation. Take quinoa for example, it’s great for breakfast as an oatmeal alternative or in an egg bake, in a soup, as a side dish, or even as a binder for a veggie patty.
Quinoa is so much cooler than rice could ever be.
Let’s not forget kale, brussels sprouts, artichokes and mushrooms; all high protein vegetables that can be prepared so many ways, and avocados, dates and blackberries which can be used to make a variety of high protein sweet treats.
All these versatile ingredients paired with herbs, spices and all the protein “classics” like meat and fish, make for an endless array of options for your next healthy, low carb, high protein meal.
