Easy Low Carb Recipe Options
When Baylor asked me to teach easy low carb recipes for a cooking class,I was excited. I thought it would be fun to demonstrate three recipes that are easy to make but had flair. Sometimes you don’t realize how easy cooking good healthy delicious meals can be. I decide to prepare my Roasted Salmon and Broccoli Salad from KITCHEN 101. I love this recipe because you roast the salmon and broccoli at the same time. I have the best low carb recipes and these recipes are not boring. So, next Chicken Stir Fry Lettuce Wraps were on my list as lots of people don’t think about making chicken lettuce wraps for a low carb dinner. Of course, I had to make a indulgent dessert so Strawberry Cheesecake Parfaits-was an easy choice. All these recipes are from my easiest cookbook, KITCHEN 101.
