3 Tasty Low Carb Recipes
People follow low carb diets for all sorts of reasons. One of the most popular reasons is to support weight loss, of course, but some studies have found that following a low-carb diet can also reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
According to the Harvard School of Public Health, a nutritious low-carb diet can be “beneficial for lowering triglycerides, the main fat-carrying particle in the bloodstream, and also deliver the biggest boost in protective HDL cholesterol”.
Research also found that a moderately low-carbohydrate diet could benefit the heart, so long as the protein and fat sources included in the diet came from healthy sources – think avocado, nuts, seeds and fish.
Low-carb and particularly ketogenic diets can also be helpful for people with diabetes and insulin resistance.
Whatever your reason for going low-carb, these 3 tasty low carb recipes are nutritiously balanced and packed with flavour – we’re sure they’ll hit the spot!
