Low-Carb Recipes Around the Web

cookingIf you are anything like me, you’re probably pretty happy to stick to some tried-and-tested low-carb recipes, but what if you want variation or want to try out low-carb versions of your favourite dishes to keep you on the straight and narrow low-carb life?

Luckily, we live in the information super age (sometimes a bad thing – step forward Google self-diagnosis…) and low-carb recipes are really easy to find.

So, if I’m in the mood to experiment in the kitchen, here is where I look…

BBC Good Food has a great selection of tried and tested low-carb recipes. I particularly like the prawn and chorizo frittata and the seafood curry.

The website uses easy-to-find ingredients and users often rate the recipes and make comments about additions they made, or substitutions, which can be very useful. And the measurements are UK ones, which you don’t often get in a low-carb recipe search.

Allrecipes.co.uk (you can also check out allrecipes.com if you want American measurements) is another site offering a great selection. I like the Cobb Salad and the lasagne recipe that uses courgette strips instead of pasta to make this popular classic.

The Food Network website has an extensive collection, as you might expect. There aren’t carbohydrate counts included for recipes, though, and look out for sometimes liberal interpretations of “low-carb”. I love spicy food, so the sound of this chicken satay definitely appeals.

If Christmas is on your mind (yikes, how am I going to resist roast potatoes/stuffing/mince pies/chocolate – insert your carb of choice), then lowcarbdiet.co.uk has a whole section with lots of ideas – from indulgent breakfasts to dips, starters, main courses and puddings. There’s a very helpful carb count for each recipe too.

There are numerous bloggers offering wonderful low-carb recipes, as you might expect. Here are links to just a few of them…

Where do you go to find low-carb recipes? We’d love to know…
