3 Healthy (And Delicious) Alternatives to Carb-Heavy Side Dishes

image_pdf

Cutting out carbs is one of the biggest hurdles when you’re trying to eat better. They often make up a lot of calories in a meal, especially if you’re eating things like rice and pasta. If you remove those carb-heavy foods, you often end up hungry after a meal which leads to snacking and makes it harder to lose weight. The key is finding some great alternatives to those not as healthy foods so you can still make the meals that you love without a huge pile of carbohydrates on your plate every night. These are some great alternatives to popular carb-heavy foods.

Crockpot Beer Braised Pork Sliders

image_pdf

It’s National Sandwich Day! And here is an amazing pork sandwich that will help you celebrate the day!

The story goes that John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich (a city in the Shire of Kent, England) loved to play cards – and he loved to eat meat. But he didn’t want greasy meat fingers to smear up his cards. So he ordered it between bread. It solved two problems. One, his fingers stayed clean and two, he didn’t need to put anything down as he would if he used a fork. In fact, this method of delivery became so popular, people started ordering, “the same as Sandwich”. And the rest is history!

So here’s a tasty slider sandwich – pork braised all day long in beer and garlic salt. Moist, full of flavor and perfect between buns (and it goes amazing with beer battered onion rings)!

Fried Green Tomato Benedict

image_pdf

Do you still have a green tomato or two on your vines? I did. Problem is, once the weather starts to cool, those things don’t ripen. You can put them in the window sill and eventually the color will turn, but I don’t think the tomatoes taste as good as those that ripen on the vine. So what to do with all those green tomatoes?

You can pickle them. I love pickled green tomatoes with a little seasoned salt. And you can fry them. We’ve all heard of fried green tomatoes.

Or you can use them as the base of a delicious eggs Benedict – low carb too!
