Low Carb Recipes Your Kids will eat!


We survived our first two weeks on a low carb menu.  I have discovered that the key is to involve your kids in the menu planning and to choose some of their favorites.  For the most part, the kids have not complained much!  I even fooled them with cauliflower “mashed potatoes.”  They didn’t even realize they weren’t potatoes and before he found out what they were, my son said they were his favorite part of the meal!  Here’s this week’s round up of Low Carb Recipes Your Kids Will Eat.

Low Carb Recipes Your Kids Will Eat


SUNDAY:  Low Carb Pepperoni Pizza Chicken Bake – I am LOVING the recipes I’m finding on Kalyn’s Kitchen.  She’s got stuff that’s totally kid friendly and right in sync with what my family loves!  This recipe has been added to our family’s favorites list!


MONDAY:  Slow Cooker Creamy Beef – The actual title of this recipe from A Year of Slow Cooking is Creamy Beef over Noodles, but since we are low carb, we will be skipping the noodles and instead I’ll be making some Garlic Mashed Cauliflower to double as mashed potatoes.

TUESDAY:  Taco Tuesday!  With football and swimming, I like to keep Tuesday nights simple.  We’re having tacos on low carb tortillas (I will have taco salad for mine) and I will make some homemade guacamole!


WEDNESDAY:  Parmesan Chicken Strips – This Parmesan Chicken Strips recipe I found sounds pretty yummy.  I can’t wait to test it out!

THURSDAY:  Enchilada bake – We liked this Mock Green Enchilada Casserole during our first week so much that I’m going to experiment tonight and try to create a similar recipe using red enchilada sauce.  Stay tuned for the recipe and review!


FRIDAY:  Crock Pot Pork Chops with Creamy Herb Sauce – I’m looking for recipes to change things up so we don’t get burned out, and this recipe from Crockpot Gourmet looks delicious!

SATURDAY:  Crock Pot Turkey Chili – It’s our trunk or treat at church and we’re having a potluck, too!  I’ll be taking a crock pot turkey chili recipe!
