high-protein, low-carb meals

While I don't follow any particular diet, most of the recipes I create are generally low-carb, high-protein recipes. Of course you'll find a few recipes outside of that generalization, but I strive for most to fit in that category because it's generally how I try to eat. I have found I have the most energy and feel my best when I'm eating high-protein, low-carb meals.

It’s important to give your body nutrients, especially when you’re busy and living an active lifestyle. The best way to keep your body fueled (and avoid the hanger between meals) is to eat nutrient-dense foods! When making meals or choosing snacks, consider the nutrients they offer. How much protein does the recipe contain? Does the meal contain enough carbs to keep you full?

While I don’t discriminate against any recipes, high-protein, low-carb recipes keep you full for longer, among other health benefits such as managing weight, building muscle, and preventing chronic illness.

Yes, absolutely.
