5 healthy Low Carb Meals in Under Fifteen Minutes

“Im too busy to cook every meal”

“I literally have no time to meal prep”

“making lunch everyday takes forever”

If you have ever said any of these things, you are in the right place! Here are 5 easy low carb recipes that are absolutely delicious, oh and they can all be prepared in under fifteen minutes.

1) Kale, Eggs, and Cherry tomatoes in coconut oil.

Ingredients: Coconut oil, 5-10 Cherry tomatoes, a few handfuls of kale, sea salt

Instructions:

  • Coat the heated pan (medium size, medium heat) in coconut oil.
  • Add Kale, begin turning it until it is all lightly coated in the oil, sprinkle with salt. Kale reduces a lot, so you have to wait a minute or two before adding the tomatoes.
  • Slice the cherry tomatoes in whichever way you like them. Toss them in with the Kale. Stir and reduce heat,
  • Using a spatula, clear the center of the pan, add a little more coconut oil if necessary, then crack your eggs into the center of the pan.
    • You have a few different options here:
      • You can let the eggs fry until they reach an over easy texture that you like
      • You can flip them and go with a traditionally fried egg
      • Or you can scramble them either staying in the middle of the pan or stirring in the kale and tomatoes.

Put it all on the plate and chow down!

2) Ground Turkey and Spinach

Ingredients: ½ lb Lean Ground Turkey, as needed Baby spinach, ½ tsp salt, coconut oil, ½ tsp crushed red pepper, 1 tsp curry powder, 1tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp ground sage.

  • In a bowl, mix Ground turkey with spices. Make sure you have distributed the spices evenly.
  • Add the ground turkey to the hot pan, stir until cooked.
