20 Low Carb Meals You’ll Want to Make Right Now

With the rise in popularity of the keto diet, it seems like everyone is on the hunt for delicious low carb meals. There are a number of health benefits associated with eating a lower amount of carbs (in particular, empty carbohydrates) and let’s be honest – low carb meals are usually pretty delicious!

I’ve had a lot of friends who’ve had success with following the keto diet and while I personally don’t subscribe to any particular diet plan, I do enjoy eating low carb meals regularly, so I’ve rounded up 20 of my favorites!

Low-carb, keto and paleo meals tend to feature a lot of meat (including a lot of the recipes below.) Meat can be expensive, especially if you want high-quality meat. If you haven’t heard of Butcherbox, I recommend you check them out!

Butcherbox is basically a meat subscription box, featuring high-quality beef, chicken and pork. You can choose from their curated boxes or design your own. Your meat is then delivered straight to your door in an insulated box. All of the beef is 100% grass-fed and the chicken is 100% organic.

Right now, they have a special going where you also get 2lbs of Wild Alaskan Salmon for FREE with your first box, so check out Butcherbox here!
