Introduction

Welcome to the world of low-carb cooking! Whether you have special dietary needs or are simply looking to lose weight, these recipes will put you on the path to better health. Making simple ingredient substitutions and choosing recipes that are high in flavor — fruits, vegetables, and lots of lean protein — are the keys to a healthy and balanced low-carb diet.

Eating healthy with a low-carb diet means picking foods that carry optimal nutrition and give you enough carbohydrates to be healthy, but not enough to weigh you down and sabotage your weight loss goals. There are two types of carbohydrates — sugars (also called simple carbohydrates) and starches (or complex carbohydrates). Your body takes the energy it needs from these molecules, and then stores the rest of them for later use. When you eat more carbs than your body needs, the excessive levels cause your body to produce fat in order to store the excess energy.

Because of this, diets that consistently contain more carbohydrates than the body needs can lead to health problems such as obesity and, in some cases, diabetes. Research has also suggested that diets high in starch contribute to heart disease and chronic inflammation, the number one cause of death in the United States. So while it is important to have carbohydrates in you diet, controlling your intake to reasonable levels is always smart.

Here are fifty of the best recipes for the carb-conscious diet. Some of these recipes are low-starch, low-carb versions of classic dishes that you’ll recognize, and some are totally new and innovative, but all of them are so delicious that you’ll never miss all those heavy starches and sugars. These fifty recipes run the gamut from filling breakfasts to elegant dinners and decadent desserts, while touching on everything in between. You’ll never find yourself eating bland low-carb meals again!

Miniature Jicama and Chorizo Snackers

A crunchy-when-raw, low-carb root vegetable native to Central and South America, Jicama resembles a turnip or large radish with a light brown skin. It can be found at any specialty grocery store.

Serves 10

Ingredients

6 ounces goat cheese, softened

5 ounces spicy salsa

¹⁄2 pound chorizo sausage

1 medium jicama, peeled, quartered, and sliced

Salt and white pepper to taste

Cilantro leaves for garnish

Combine the goat cheese and salsa in a small bowl. Use the tines of a fork to blend until incorporated; set aside.
