Healthy Food...

Looking for some Low Carb & Low Calorie things to cook. I'm up for pretty much anything , we're not picky ! We started a new low carb diet. Started last Wednesday and we've already lost 2 lbs!

What kind of meals do you eat to keep you healthy?! Thanks for the suggestions in advance!

Eat lean meat, poultry, eggs and fish/shellfish and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables; limit snacks, deep-fried foods, saturated fats and sweets.

Cut out processed food. Go meatless a couple of times a week, eat breakfast. Cut out added sugar.

There is a sign on my front door: " No healthy food are served here. Eat at your own risk".

I doubt I will be much help.

That is the routine that I follow.

I need to be careful with fruit and some starchy vegetables.

Sad to say I don't cook much anymore usually it is salad and meat or sometimes meat and salad!

Watch your portion size. Veggies should fill more of your plate than protein or carbs. Use a smaller-sized plate.
