5 High Protein Low Carb Foods That Taste Good

When it comes to eating healthy, carbs are often the one thing that can easily be cut out of a diet and help you to reach weight goals or overall health goals. Let’s face it, carbs are the enemy for many people. However, when you do decide to cut carbs, be sure that you are considering high protein foods. Protein help to keep you full...a lot like carbs do, with the added benefit of helping to encourage weight loss as most studies suggest. The key is finding high protein, low carb foods that taste good, so you don’t feel as though you are losing out.

1. Omelets

These are super high in protein and low in carbs, and with all the things that you can add into these omelets, they can taste delicious. You can add in cheese is you want, or leave this out for those who may be going dairy free. You can add the veggies of your choice such as mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, or even spinach.

2. Cold cuts

Foods that taste delicious like cold cuts when paired without bread are going to be super low carb, and high protein. You will find that meats like prosciutto, salami, jamon and koppa are your best options.

3. Pistachios

These are a great nut to snack on, and they are low calorie as well. They are high in protein and low in carbs making them a great option to go to when you are feeling peckish but don’t want a huge meal.

4. Shrimp

It is a good source of lean protein and has almost no carbs. In fact, just one serving of this can account for half a daily intake of protein. You can dress it up with spices and herbs to add to the taste without having to use cocktail sauce which can add in sugars to your diet.

5. Sunflower seed butter

Most people when they think about peanut butter being a great source of protein and having a great taste, which it does. However, sunflower butter is super high in protein and has a nice taste that can add a little zest to whatever you eat it on. To cut the carbs, try to use low carb breads or crackers, or just simply eat this with some fruit.

Just because you want to cut carbs does not mean that you have to cut taste with these protein choices.
