No one is defined by just one thing. Neither is your health. Our customers have many health concerns, and we know they can overlap. Lots of foods that fit one kind of diet clash badly with another. That’s a huge hassle when trying to take care of your overall health.
Many recipes suitable for a low-carb diet are high in fat or salt. Tons of recipes designed for the DASH diet don’t pay attention to carb counts. Finding good foods that fit both diets can be difficult. But we have four great recipes low in carbs, fat and sodium to help you enjoy snack time without derailing your health goals.
There are low-carb tortillas at the supermarket. But they can be pricey and aren’t always as good as the traditional ones. We like these because they are different. They aren’t like corn or flour tortillas, so you don’t compare them. As they are made with lime juice and cilantro, they aren’t bland. They are wonderful for wraps, tacos or as a snack on their own! A serving has 47 calories, 4.4 grams of carbs, 1.6 grams of fiber and two grams of fat. Get the recipe.
We are huge fans of tuna salad. But, sometimes, mayonnaise can be heavy. And sometimes, you want a new twist on a beloved classic. That’s where this spread comes in! Made with avocado and Greek yogurt, it’s still creamy and delicious, but it’s lower in saturated fat. The recipe takes just five minutes, and you may never add mayo to your tuna again. A serving has 130 calories, 6.1 grams of carbs, 3.7 grams of fiber and 8.2 grams of fat. Get the recipe.
You’ve heard of kale chips, but what about beet chips? Beets are high in antioxidants and healthy nitrates. They have a mostly neutral flavor that is similar to a potato chip but leans toward a little sweet, like roasted corn. They are pleasant and have a satisfying crunch many of us look for in a savory snack. A serving has 70 calories, seven grams of carbs, two grams of fiber and 0.5 grams of fat. Get the recipe.
As we said, we’re all for new takes on old classics. Is this a twist on hummus or a new version of guacamole? You can decide for yourself. What we know is that it’s smooth, creamy and delicious no matter what you dip into it! This dish is quite high in fat but low in saturated fat. It’s so tasty it’s sure to become a party staple in your home. A serving has 156 calories, 9.5 grams of carbs, 3.2 grams of fiber and 12.4 grams of fat. Get the recipe.
We hope that you enjoy these dishes as you work to achieve your blood sugar and heart health goals. It can be difficult. But it’s worth it to experience good health. It is possible to eat great food as you travel on your health journey; these are just four examples!
