14 Delicious Summer Low Carb Recipes
Easy summer BBQ & grilling
When you think of a BBQ you expect certain types of foods to be there like burgers, grilled bread, or a pasta salad on the side. This can be a problem on the low carb diet because all of those dishes are typically based on wheat products that are rich in carbs.
Our recipes use alternatives made with flaxseed. That ensures the dishes are very low in carbs and you can make them any way you like. You can enjoy all the summer BBQ classics on the low carb diet.
