4 High-Fat, Low-Carb Quick Meal Ideas To Keep You Energized And Feeling Your Best
What do you think of when you hear the word “fats”? Does it make you want to scream and run in the other direction?
Listen — that’s understandable, but there are good fats that give our body the energy it needs to get us through the day. It would be pretty much impossible to be a functioning human without them.
There’s a nice little list of “healthy fats” found in some whole foods that you can add to your diet. Here we can take a look at some HFLC meals that won’t take up your whole day, ditch the added carbs, and give you a good zip of energy!
1 head butter lettuce or other artisan lettuce you like
Wrap it up:
Make the tahini green goddess dressing
Prepare and slice the vegetables and set them aside.
Pat the shrimp dry and toss it with kosher salt, the garlic powder, and dried oregano.
Heat 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil in a large non-stick pan. Add the shrimp and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until just pink and no longer grey. Immediately squeeze the lemon all over the shrimp.
Assemble the lettuce wrap. Take one lettuce leaf (or you can overlap two leaves if you’re using smaller lettuce leaves) and arrange some of the veggies and fresh herbs on top. Add 1 to 2 shrimp. And finish with a drizzle of the green goddess dressing.
Serve the lettuce wraps with a bit more of the green goddess dressing on the side.
Add the ingredients for the pesto to a food processor and process until creamy.
Add more lemon juice, garlic, and/or sea salt to taste
Heat the avocado oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add the spiralized zucchini noodles and sun-dried tomatoes. Cook, stirring occasionally for 2 minutes.
Add the spinach, cover the skillet, and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes.
Remove the cover and continue cooking until zucchini noodles reach desired doneness.
Add the avocado pesto to the skillet with the zoodles and stir well to combine. Serve zoodles with lemon wedges and toasted pine nuts.
