Low Carb January: A Roundup

So I managed to lose 9.8 pounds in January (John lost even more!), mostly by avoiding starches and sweets. This wasn’t an absolute rule – I still had work events where I ate what was there, had fruit as a snack, and drank alcohol. But this did mean that I brainstormed a lot of fun low carb meals for John and myself. Thought I’d share the dinners we had at home this month, which were a mixture of old favorites, adaptations and new recipes (we’re continuing this into February, but a bit more relaxed).

Broccoli Cheese Soup
Viet Chicken Thighs over Nuoc Cham salad
Salmon Kebabs with greens
Pizzeria Salad
Chicken Piccata over Green Beans Almondine
Cauliflower Soup
Thai Basil Chicken in lettuce cups with stir fry veggies
White Bean Stuffed Mushrooms, zuchinni with tomato sauce and mozzarella
Greek turkey burgers (lettuce wrap, no bun)
A chunky chicken noodle soup made by John
Chicken Milanese with brussels sprouts
Salmon Guac Wraps
Chicken with Snow Peas with quinoa
Hot and Sour Soup with Chinese broccoli
Fajita Steak Salad

Goat Cheese Stuffed Pork Chops with green beans
