The following low carbohydrate food list will include low carbohydrate vegetables and some of the fruits that most people mistake for vegetables.  It will also include low carb herbs - which herbs are naturally.

Be Careful of These!

These are higher in carbohydrates, so be careful:  Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Pumpkin, Parsnips, Beets, Sweet Peas, and Sweet Corn

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 by the way some starchy vegetables should only be eaten cooked.

Low Carb Vegetarian Recipes - Zucchini Noodles

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

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 - Kale Chips

I prefer to make my kale chips in the dehydrator and I also prefer to use organic Dino kale or flat leaf kale over the curly kind because it contains less oxalates which can create stones in your body.

If you prefer to use the oven when making your kale chips, just be sure to keep an eye on them.

You can also find a variety of kale chips at your local grocery stores these days, but it's so much cheaper to make them yourself.
