As a busy mom, there is little time to create separate meals to meet your fitness goals, especially if you aim for paleo, keto, or other low carb lifestyle. Since my daughter enjoys a fast metabolism, I make rice, bread, or pasta dishes for her while modifying for low carb swaps for myself.
She recently discovered a love of steaks so I made carne asada flatbread pizza and a salad for myself which was super quick to make. There are notes about my oven in the instructions. I have to adjust 25 degrees over what most recipes call for and increase the time to get the right amount of crispness.
Low Carb Swap: Salad
This recipe uses the carne asada, tomatoes, mini peppers, etc. over gem or butter lettuce with a cilantro lime dressing. If you have avocado, put a few slices on top and it will definitely fill you up. I’m still working on the Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette recipe, I’ll post the recipe once it’s perfected. In the meantime, use your favorite dressing or vinaigrette.
Low Carb Swap: Carne Asada Wrap
Use the carne asada, cheese, tomatoes, mini peppers, lettuce, and low carb tortilla. You can put sliced avocados or guacamole into the wrap. I like the Siete Foods Coconut & Cassava Tortillas for wraps or the Siete Foods Almond Flour Tortillas for quesadillas. You can find these tortillas at Whole Foods or order them on Amazon (linked).
The recipe instructions show each step, so it makes it seem really long, it’s pretty quick and easy to make. When I started cooking, I found that people left out steps and I would wonder why my dishes didn’t come out the same.
