Low carb: Set & forget #1

Set_and_forget_1_16x9

With this week’s “set-and-forget” meal plan, you have the ability to get your dinner going before you even head off to work.

This week’s meal plan is all about convenience. When it comes to the mid-week meals, they’re more centered around using your slow cooker. But then, for the weekend, we’ve selected relaxed meals that can be cooked and eaten at each mealtime.

Don’t have a slow cooker? Don’t worry about it. A large pot over low heat will work just as well. (If you’re using a pan on the stove, you’ll want to be sure someone is home to keep an eye on it during the day.)

Among this week’s star dishes, you will enjoy our slow-cooked Moroccan beef, juicy pulled-chicken, and come the weekend — when you have more time to cook — our popular eggplant pizza.

With these recipes, you can even cook the meals in bulk on the weekend and refrigerate or freeze them until needed. And the best part is, these recipe ideas will keep you below 22 grams of net carbs per day.

And remember: With this week’s lineup, you can feel free to adjust, change, or skip any meal. It’s completely up to you!
