Here are some creative low-carb recipes that will help you maintain your health goals without sacrificing flavor.

1. Zucchini Noodles with Pesto and Grilled Chicken
Ingredients:

●    1/4 cup pine nuts
●    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
●    2 cloves garlic
●    1/4 cup olive oil

●    2 grilled chicken breasts, sliced

Instructions:
1.    Using a spiralizer, create zucchini noodles (zoodles) from the zucchinis.

3.    With the processor running, slowly add olive oil until the mixture becomes smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
4.    Toss the zucchini noodles with the pesto until evenly coated.
5.    Top with sliced grilled chicken and serve immediately.

Benefits:
●    Zucchini noodles are a low-carb alternative to pasta, providing fiber and vitamins without the excess carbs.

2. Cauliflower Fried Rice
Ingredients:

4.    Add the grated cauliflower to the skillet, stirring to combine with vegetables and eggs.
5.    Pour soy sauce over the mixture and cook for another 5-7 minutes until the cauliflower is tender but not mushy.
