I almost never talk about cooking on this blog.
But I do cook. Definitely not a master at it but I have a few “go to” low-carb meals that I can eat again and again.
All the recipes I make are ridiculously simple and most of them (except the chicken wings) can be prepared in less than 10-15 minutes.
Simple foods, simple ingredients.
I already posted all of these on Facebook and thought I’d put them all in a post.
All are low-carb, healthy, weight loss friendly meals.
Egg Stir Fry
Ingredients: Coconut oil, frozen vegetable mix, eggs and spices.
- 1. Put coconut oil on a pan, turn the heat on.
- 2. Put vegetable mix on pan, heat until thawed.
- 3. Add 3-4 eggs and spice (I use a spice mix, although salt and pepper works fine).
- 4. Fry until ready.
I eat this for breakfast every day.
Burgers Without The Bun
Ingredients: Butter, burgers, cheese, spices and salsa sauce.
- 1. Put butter on pan, turn up the heat.
- 2. Add burgers, spice on both sides.
- 3. When close to being ready, add cheese on top.
- 4. Wait for cheese to melt.
- 5. Put on plate, add mild salsa sauce on top.
- 6. Serve with some vegetables.
Grilled Chicken Wings
Ingredients: Chicken wings, spices.
- 1. Add spice on chicken wings.
- 2. Grill at 200-220°C (392-428F) for 40ish minutes.
- 3. Serve with vegetables and perhaps some mild salsa.
Keep an eye on the wings. Grill until wings get brown and crunchy. 5 minutes too long is better than 5 minutes too short.
There’s something primitive about eating meat off the bone. I Love it!
Fried Chicken Breast Pieces
Ingredients: Chicken breasts, butter, garlic, salt, pepper and curry.
- 1. Cut chicken breasts into pieces.
- 2. Add butter on pan, turn up the heat.
- 3. Add chicken pieces.
- 4. Spice with salt, pepper, garlic and curry. Lots of curry.
- 5. Fry until the chicken gets a brown, crunchy texture.
- 6. Serve with vegetables.
Use plenty of butter with this meal, chicken breast on its own is too dry.
Eggs And Bacon
Ingredients: Eggs, bacon.
- 1. Fry bacon, not too long.
- 2. Fry eggs in bacon fat.
I have no idea when I will write the next cooking post, but if I make a healthy low-carb meal that I feel proud of then I usually take a photo and post it on Facebook.
