How to Cook Low-Carb Meals

Start by removing carbohydrate-rich foods from your pantry. When high carbohydrate foods aren't available, they won't tempt you to consume them.

When cooking main dishes, substitute cooking oils with olive oil. All meats are acceptable for a low-carbohydrate diet. Meat is high in protein and considered an essential part of a low-carbohydrate diet for providing energy. Lightly coat meat in olive oil and seasonings such as salt and pepper. Grill meat for extra flavor.

Part of a low-carbohydrate diet is replacing carbohydrates with fats and proteins. Cheese and eggs are healthy low-carbohydrate options to use for cooking and creating meals. Add cheese or chopped, boiled eggs to the top of fresh steamed asparagus for a low-carb vegetable.

High-starch vegetables such as potatoes, peas, corn and carrots should be restricted when eating a low-carbohydrate diet. To create a creamy side dish, cauliflower can be steamed and then pureed with butter and a small amount of cream.

Fresh fruits make a great dessert option but high glycemic fruits such as bananas or citrus fruits should be avoided. Baked apples with butter, cinnamon and brown sugar can be created with simple ingredients and are a healthy low-carbohydrate option.
