Low Carb Recipes

A low carb recipe is a great way to practice healthy eating lifestyle and diet. A low carb dish is not necessarily for those who are on a diet or want to lose their weight. A low carb lifestyle can and should be adopted by all. The advantages of a low carb balanced diet is that it has all the necessary nutrients minus the unhealthy fats. A low carb meal can be had from a choice of almost any kind of dish.

Any dish you wish can be converted into low carb by modifying a few ingredients. For example milk can be replaced by low-fat milk, yoghurt can be replaced by low-fat yoghurt, sugar can be replaced by sugar free pills, and so and so forth. And you can replace lot of daily food items you consume such as instead of white bread, go for whole wheat bread. Instead of white rice, go for brown rice when making chinese dishes.

Korean Not Real Kimchi Salad

I never really liked kimchi to be honest. You know, that spicy pickled cabbage with specks of red all over. The fact that it was always stored in a huge jar of murky vinegar (I think) didn’t help entice my senses either. Kimchi, to me, always tasted like waxy spicy sour cabbage. I just didn’t like it.

But Korean kimchi salad is a whole different topic.

The first day I tried it (the same night my mom came home with Korean style grilled chicken!), I almost finished the whole carton of it. Yes, it is that good. It’s sweet, crisp, light, and refreshing – the perfect appetizer for any occasion. I highly recommend everyone to try this dish. You won’t be disappointed.

Here’s the recipe! Continue reading “Korean Not Real Kimchi Salad”

Top Five Healthy Lunches For the Office at Home Or For Weight Loss

Lunch is a difficult meal for many people trying to lose weight. It’s tempting to go to a shop near the office and grab something there, but often this is no good for the waist or the wallet! Alternatively, you may choose to bring something in from home – and the most obvious choice is a sandwich. However, given that one should try to restrict the amount of carbs one eats in a day, a sandwich may not be the best choice.

So, here’s some suggestions for some sandwich-free lunches.

  1. Fruit

This may not be many people’s first choice for a filling, satisfying lunch but it is worth doing every now and again particularly if you know you’ve got a carb-rich dinner that night. A fruit salad is healthy, delicious and makes you feel great for being so healthy!

  1. Home Made Soup

Great for the winter! When you make soup for dinner, just make a little bit more so that you have some left over for lunch the next day. You can either heat it up in the microwave, or take a flask to the office. It may look nerdy, but your waistline will thank you for it!
