Low-Carb Food Options for Health-Conscious Eaters
People are more conscious of their health and diets than ever before. And, with so many different diet options to choose from, it can be difficult to know which is best. But, one of the main consensus points among most of today’s diet fads is that cutting carbs can coincide with weight loss. Many diets, such as the Keto diet and Atkins diet encourage dieters to completely cut carbs out of their diets to lose weight. Even for those not on a strict diet, removing some carbs from a diet can be a positive thing.
Here are a few low-carb alternatives for high-carb foods to consider:
All of these low-carb options can be made and enjoyed by residents in the spacious kitchens at our apartments in Mount Dora, FL. Contact us today to learn more about the Veranda Apartment Homes community.
- Kale chips – Kale is a super food, meaning that it is packed with more key nutrients than other foods. Therefore, kale chips are the perfect low-carb alternative for potato chips. They offer the same crunchy, salty deliciousness, sans the extra carbs.
- Zucchini or spaghetti squash pasta – Pasta is loaded with carbs, and adding high-fat meat and cheese don’t exactly make pasta a health-conscious option. For anyone who loves pasta but wants to cut some carbs, zucchini noodles and spaghetti squash noodles are the perfect alternative. They can be prepared to look just like pasta, and they are delicious with sauce and cheese – without all the carbs of regular pasta.
- Cauliflower pizza crust – Pizza is a staple of almost every American’s diet. But, pizza isn’t always the healthiest food option, and the carb-filled crust is something many people try to avoid. Diced cauliflower makes for a great low-carb alternative to traditional pizza crust. When baked in the oven, it gets crispy, just like regular pizza. So, it will be tough to even notice the difference!
