Low Carb Dieters: Want a Break from the Meat? Make It Veggie!Written by Sylvie Charrier
At first, your low carb diet seemed like best dream you'd ever had. A dietary expert was actually telling you to eat as much meat, eggs, and cheese as you possibly wanted. You could go to any restaurant, order biggest slab of beef on menu and—since you weren't eating bread or potatoes with meat—you could still claim you were watching your waistline when offered dessert. But, now that low carb honeymoon is over, you might be finding that thought of another pork chop, omelet, or hunk of cheese makes you sick to your stomach. If you fit this description, there is a way to keep your carbs low, but your spirits high. Instead of a steak for your next breakfast, lunch, and dinner, why don't you try a low carb vegetarian dish?
Don't worry—you don't need a special ID card to eat vegetarian foods, nor do you need to wear sandals and burn incense. In fact, with nuts, fruits, and vegetables, you eat vegetarian foods all time! But, if you're ready to skip steak once in a while, it's time to replace some of your meat entrees with vegetarian options. And, believe it or not, it's easier than you might think to whip up a low carb vegetarian dish.
"I can't believe it's not vegetarian!"
The easiest way to take your low carb diet on a vegetarian trip is by using meat substitutes. Meat substitutes taste, feel, and even smell like real deal. When you simply substitute these faux meats in any of your meat-based recipes, you'll have to check package twice to make sure it really says "Vegetarian" on label. From tofu to tempeh, seitan to TVP, there are just about as many meat substitutes as actual meats on market today. You can have vegetarian ribs, shrimp, steak, chicken, turkey, salmon, and just about any other meat you can think of. But, if you really want a break from meat, real thing or even fakes, vegetarian dishes can serve you up right.
