Low-carb meals for families

Planning, shopping and cooking food for an entire family is often a time-consuming task. When starting low carb you could find yourself increasing that time, cooking different things for yourself and the rest of your family. It does not have to be like that.

It’s important to remember that what you should eat on a low-carb diet is real food. And real food is good for everyone. At the same time, for most growing children there is no need to eat strict low carb. So feel free to add a variety of vegetables to their plates and a fruit for dessert, if you like.

Also, if you are breastfeeding you should probably stay above 50 grams of carbs per day yourself, as your requirements are increased (breastfeeding on low carb).
