Low carb meals for families

Planning meals, grocery shopping, and cooking for an entire family are time-consuming tasks — we get it! If you’re new to low carb, you may find the adjustment difficult, especially if you cook different meals for yourself and the rest of the family. We’re here to help you put an end to short-order cooking!

On a low carb diet you should be eating real food, and real food is good for everyone. That being said, for most growing children there is no need to eat strictly low carb, so you can add various vegetables to their plates and offer fruit for dessert.

What are your thoughts on cooking low carb for the entire family? Do you have a go-to winning dish that everyone at the table enjoys? We’d love to hear about how you and your family experience low carb in the comments below.

Please note: If you are breastfeeding, aim to consume at least 50 grams of carbs per day in order to meet your dietary requirements. For more information on this topic, please see our article on breastfeeding on low carb.
