Low Carb Salads & Soups

The low carb diet is one of the most popular diets / lifestyles in the world. Popularized in the 1970s by Dr. Robert Atkins, it has become a mainstream lifestyle followed by many people throughout the world. Many individuals with diabetes, weight problems, and other concerns report having found relief and improvement from their conditions by adopting this diet. The diet is based around the idea of limiting carbohydrates and replacing with healthy fats and proteins. Unfortunately, this often means that many higher-carb recipes that people used to enjoy are now off limits.

One of the ideas behind the success of any diet or lifestyle change is ensuring that its one that you can follow. Creative cooks around the world have experimented and found ways to replicate the taste or texture of high carbohydrate dishes with alternative ingredients that are lower in carbohydrates. 

These delicious low carb recipes are great options for those who are following such a diet. By using naturally-derived sweeteners, alternative flours, and other substitutions, a low carb diet doesn’t have to mean that all the flavor and enjoyment is lost. Enjoy these recipes!

Red Bourbon Chili Sausage over Cheesy Cauliflower Grits

Admittedly, I'm not the biggest fan of southern stick-to-your-rib comfort food cooking, but occasionally I succumb to it and enjoy an episode of gluttony. I AM a big fan of mixing sweet and salty or sweet and savory, and this recipe turned out so well that I forgot to even get a picture of it once it was finished!
