21 Best Low Carb Meal Prep Recipes
Meal prepping can save you time, money and doesn’t always have to consist of chicken, rice and broccoli. Put aside a couple of hours on a Sunday, grab your glass tupperwares (plastic tupperwares can release toxic chemicals when microwaved), and take away the stress of deciding what to have for lunch everyday! Check out 21 of our favourite low carb meal prep recipes below.
Give us a Quiche
Quiche is one of our favourite lunchtime recipes and one of the more economical uses of Lo-Dough - one base can provide you with 2-4 portions for your lunch (depending on how hungry you are!). Compared to regular pastry, Lo-Dough also helps you reduce your carb intake by roughly 90% whilst still being able to enjoy this eggcellent recipe. Perfect if you’re following a low carb or ketogenic diet.
