Four Easy Low-Carb Recipes Under 10 Minutes

The low-carb diet surged in popularity in the past few years and took credit for transforming the bodies of a couple of celebrities. Everybody seemed to be going for a low-carb version of their meals nowadays! A low-carb diet is also known as grain-free and comes in different forms, including paleo and Atkins. The main goal is to remove as much carbohydrate components in your food.

How does a low-carb diet work? When you eat fewer carbohydrates, you replace most of the body’s carbohydrate intake with fat. This causes it to be better at burning fat for energy. Our body typically uses blood sugar, which comes from carbohydrates, to create energy. In the low-carb diet, you have lesser blood sugar so the body will burn the stored fat instead. We credit this metabolic phenomenon for the weight loss of those who undergo this diet.

We’re going to help you get on with this new diet with four easy recipes. The ingredients are not hard to find, so even if you’re not on the low-carb diet, these recipes will serve you right.

Bacon and Eggs

Ditch the toasted bread and you’ll have a low-carb meal with this breakfast staple. We’re not proud to use bacon because it’s processed meat, but this classic combination is low-carb. So don’t be surprised if you overly enjoy eating this and lose weight. It is recommended though, to eat bacon once or twice per week. Please keep it to a minimum, but anything more than that could be unhealthy. While we’re doing our best to be healthy, remember that it is still best to get health insurance always prepared.

Ingredients: Bacon, eggs, spices, or season to taste.


  1. Add the bacon to a pan and fry until ready to your likeness.
  2. Set aside the bacon on a plate and fry three to four eggs in the bacon fat.
