Low Carb Cauliflower and Thyme Soup
You have to scroll far down on the page for the recipe, but it’s worth it! This soup is low in calories as well as sugar (1 g per serving). Including prep and cooking time, this delightful soup can be on your table in just 30 minutes. Great for lunch or dinner.
Crunchy Cheesy Shrimp
This recipe can serve as a main course, a side dish, or an appetizer! These cheesy shrimp take only minutes to make and may disappear just as quickly! http://barbaras.com/recipes/crunchy-cheesy-shrimp/
Roasted and Spiced Chickpeas
If you are looking for a unique snack or a different side dish (goes great with the Balsamic Salmon!) to accompany a main dish, this recipe is for you. You can give an extra pinch of chili powder if you like it really hot! http://naturallysavvy.com/recipes/roasted-and-spiced-chickpeas

Guacamole is the perfect snacking dip with fresh veggies or whole grain chips. Avocado and extra virgin olive oil are super sources of healthy fats. Dip and enjoy!
Pomegranate and Pear Quinoa Salad
This recipe has it all: high protein in quinoa, which also is a great source of fiber, the natural sweetness of pomegranate and pears, and healthy fats in the sunflower seeds. http://naturallysavvy.com/recipes/pomegranate-and-pear-quinoa-salad-recipe
Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Even if you think you don’t like Brussel sprouts, you’ll love this recipe. The combination of maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, and coconut oil make these roasted green orbs a true delight. Makes a perfect side dish. To lower the sugar content, swap the maple syrup for balsamic vinegar. http://naturallysavvy.com/recipes/maple-roasted-brussels-sprouts
Love waffles for breakfast? This recipe includes a few surprises, including fiber- and protein-rich flaxseeds and unsweetened applesauce, and of course Puffins cereal. The combination results in a treat everyone will love. You can swap the brown sugar for coconut sugar, which has a lower glycemic index, or eliminate it altogether (which would be my recommendation). http://barbaras.com/recipes/puffin-waffles/
This easy recipe takes just 15 minutes from prep to table. Be sure to use wild-caught salmon, which is a rich source of essential omega-3 fatty acids. https://www.fatsecret.com/recipes/balsamic-salmon/Default.aspx
