Question Need Low Carb Ideas

I'm taking a meal to a pregnant mama tomorrow and I need ideas. The only restriction she has is that the meal must be low carb. What can I make her that's quick and simple?

Thanks.

If you make her something grain free it will be lower carb as long as it's not loaded with fruit and honey .

Google "easy paleo dinner recipe" for options.

I made this salad low carb for dh by using less sugar in the dressing, leaving out the chow mein noodles and adding more nuts and sunflower seeds. We both really enjoyed it. I store and transport dressing, toppings and salad separately and mix when we're ready to eat.

We also like curry beef or chicken similar to this recipe. Instead of potatoes or rice, I serve it with cauliflower. I also use a can of coconut milk and less beef broth, but I'm thinking just the broth would be lower in carbs.

this one is a favorite in our house: http://www.thepaleomom.com/2011/12/r...meatballs.html

it's grain-free and i usually serve it with a side of sauteed cherry tomatoes or other quick veggie and a simple salad.

Cut up some chicken breasts and spread them on a jelly roll pan with veggies (carrots, peas, onions, broccoli, sweet potatoes etc.). Drizzle everything with olive oil and then sprinkle with salt and seasonings. Roast at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Serve alone or over spinach.
