In the entertainment industry we all want to stay fit and healthy, so here are a couple great dinner ideas that taste amazing and are low carb so if you want to lose a few pounds to boot these are perfect!
Carbs are needed to fuel your body and your brain, but if you’re looking to drop a few pounds fast or just to eat healthy and clean cutting them out especially in the evening may help. Make sure you do it the right way though, you shouldn’t cut all carbs completely so try these low-carb snack and meal ideas.
Ham and Cheese Pinwheels:
Pinwheels aren’t just for party guests. Roll a few slices of ham with lettuce, herbs, and your favorite type of cream cheese and add a few to your brown bag. Accompany your protein-filled lunch with a few slices of fruit and veggies and you won’t even miss those carby bread slices.
Tuna Salad on Tomato:
When you’re watching your carb counts, bread can be a major culprit. But bread doesn’t have to be the only thing to build a sandwich on! The next time you whip yourself up a light tuna salad, serve it on tomatoes or cucumbers. Tuna is packed with protein and iron, and the veggies will give the snack added vitamins and nutrients.
When the heat starts to pick up in the Summer, nothing beats a caprese salad. Simple to make, you only need a few ingredients: tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and olive oil. And the fresher the better! If you’re worried about calories, opt for a part-skim mozzarella, which still tastes satisfying.
Cucumbers With Ranch Greek Yogurt Dip:
Rethink ranch dip by substituting Greek yogurt for sour cream and mayonnaise. Instead of the powdered spices and salt, quickly chop up some chives, parsley, and garlic for our cucumbers with ranch Greek yogurt dip. There is so much flavor packed in these fresh herbs, only a little salt is needed to satiate your palate.
