6 Great Ways to Enjoy Your Low Carb DietWritten by Sylvie Charrier
If there is one low carb diet complaint that we hear over and over again, it's that a low carb diet is so boring. Sure, they don't always use those words, but that's what they mean when they say "there's not enough variety," or "it gets so monotonous," or "there's nothing to eat." Luckily for you, these carb complainers are wrong. No one ever said that low carb dieting had to be boring. In fact, low carb dieting is not about restriction, but about enjoying really delicious, really diverse foods.
There are many ways to begin enjoying your low carb diet today! Here are 6 simple ways you can turn your low carb diet into a high taste adventure!
1.Mix It Up
Start thinking outside "I can't eat anything" box and start seeing all things you can eat on a low carb diet. You'd be surprised how many foods open up before your eyes when you stop focusing on what you can't eat and being looking around at what you can.
If you do nothing else to break your low carb blahs than fill your cupboards with assorted spices and seasonings, you'll still be thankful. Dress up your low carb foods with fresh herbs and tangy marinades. Add zip and zest with flavorful dressings and mouth-watering marinades. Jazz up your menu with lip-smacking low carb syrups and spicy sauces. The key is taking bland and making it bold!
Dump notion that you have to eat meat every day and try a vegetarian dish a few days a week. Believe it or not, you don't have to be a vegetarian to eat like one. In fact, studies have shown that vegetarians who follow a well-balanced low-carb, low-fat, high-fiber diet often have a lower chance of coronary artery disease, hypertension, and obesity. If that's not enough convincing, try any of many meat substitutes in your local store. Whether you're looking for fish, chicken, steak, or sausages, you'll find that meatless version of each often has same consistency and taste as original. The beauty of it, of course, is these meat-free dishes are often dramatically lower in fat and calories than meats they replace. In most cases, protein count is higher, and net carbs are very low too!
