Helpful tips for cooking and meal preparation
Eating low-carb, high-fat includes getting back to wholesome, real, unprocessed food. Some have even called it vintage eating. If you like to cook, you’ll find delicious meals below to make for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Not so sure about doing a lot of cooking? Here are some helpful tips to make it easier:
- Take a break from breakfast: If you’re not hungry, feel free to skip breakfast and just have coffee (with some milk if you want it).
Many people find that within a few days of eating low-carb, high-fat meals, cravings and hunger decrease significantly. This can make it easy to skip a meal, perhaps especially breakfast.
Skipping a meal is cheap, fast, and might increase the diet’s effectiveness for weight loss and diabetes.

- Make bigger lots: cook two servings and save the second for lunch the next day. Now you only need to cook once per day!
- Freeze leftovers: Most of the recipes freeze well, too, so you can make up a casserole, divide it into smaller serving sizes and then freeze some to warm up later for a meal. Perhaps you don’t even have to cook every day?
- Repeat favorites: Crazy about scrambled eggs? Love steak? You can eat ’em everyday.
We have more than 700 low-carb recipes with a huge variety of ingredients and flavours so you never will get bored. If, however, you find a couple of meals that you love and you find easy, feel free to eat them as often as you like. You will get the same results.
- Basic no-cook plates: Away from a kitchen or not wanting to cook for a meal? Sliced deli meats, cheese, and vegetables with dip make an easy lunch.
Or boil up a dozen eggs and keep them ready in the fridge to grab for lunch or snacks. A can of tuna or salmon, with some full fat mayonnaise and vegetable crudités, is a simple lunch.
Smoked oysters, sardines, herring with raw veggies or a salad are other easy no-cook choices.
Who should NOT do a low-carb diet?
