I'm looking for some new low carb dinner ideas that I can put together on Sundays for the week. I do a lot of Crock-Pot/casserole meals. I work 10 hour days and if I have to cook too then excersizing doesn't make the cut for my time that day. But I'm bored with my recipes. I need some new ideas please

    I like to marinate and grill a ton of chicken breasts. Throughout the week I'll use them on salads or use various sauces or salsas to make them taste a little different each day. Roast a couple pans of vegetables too and then you've got a bunch of meals for the week.

    Turkey meatballs! Mix 2lb turkey in any flavor god or Mrs Dash with egg and 1/4c brown rice or quinoa, I do 3.5oz balls with a side of zucchini or broccoli. Bake or broil turkey balls to your preference of brown. I dip in mustard or hot sauce, but that is preference 😊

    Also meat loaf, meat balls. If you are trying low carb, have these with cauliflower blitzed into a rice like side.

    I second meatloaf! We use cupcake pans to make pre-portioned mini meatloaves. Bakes faster too. They freeze quite well after being cooked if you wrap in plastic.
