If you’re in the midst of transitioning to a low-carb diet, then you’ve probably felt like there’s not much to choose from.

While salads are always an option, they can get old quick—especially if that’s all you’ve been relying on in this courageous trek to health. 

Luckily, there are tons of creative ideas out there—like veggie rice and noodles—that will leave you full and happy without carb-guilt. Here are a few recipes to get you going.
