Low Carb Vegetarian Recipes - Kale Chips


I prefer to make my kale chips in the dehydrator and I also prefer to use Dino Kale or flat leaf kale over the curly kind.

You will also be able to find a variety of kale chips at your grocery stores these days.

Low Carb Vegetarian Recipes - Zucchini Noodles

I've used a couple different spiralizers and it does make the job of making raw noodles a lot easier. 

However, if you do decide to cook your raw zucchini noodles - you might want to use the spiralizer in this video because it makes a thicker noodle than the other spiralizers.

You could also use the higher carb vegetables to make noodles in a spiralizer - which contain more sugar than the vegetables found on the low carbohydrate food list.

Low Carb Vegetarian Recipes - Toppings for Your Spiralized Noodles:

  • Olive Oil and Garlic
  • Olive Oil and Sun-Dried Tomatoes
  • Homemade or Store-Bought Spaghetti Sauce
  • Pesto Sauce

Just be careful not to overdo it with the starchy vegetables because your body can only handle a certain amount of sugar at one time and some starchy vegetables should only be eaten cooked.
