Simple Low Carb Recipes for a Mother’s Day at Home

May 6, 2020

While you may not be celebrating Mother’s Day with brunch at a restaurant or at a larger family gathering, now, more than ever, it’s important to honor mom, and all the roles she’s taken on recently: teacher, chef, activities coordinator and purveyor of puzzles, to name a few.

 I’ve put together some low carb Mother’s Day recipes that are delicious and easy for kids and dads to prepare and enjoy, while giving mom a day off.

 Breakfast

Whether you’re treating mom to breakfast in bed or you’re letting her sleep in until brunch, you can take your pick from these sweet and savory main dishes. Round out her meal with a side of bacon or sausage and a mimosa (with a small splash of OJ).

 Lemony Protein Pancakes

You’ll also need the recipe for Atkins Flour Mix to make these perfect pancakes.

 Mini Breakfast Sausage, Bell Pepper and Scallion Casseroles

Everyone gets their own mini egg casserole, and you can substitute whatever ingredients you may have on hand, such as diced ham, turkey or bacon, spinach, mushrooms or tomatoes and any kind of cheese.

 Parfait Menu

These light and fruity parfaits are the perfect addition to breakfast in bed or brunch, and the recipes are simple enough for the kiddos to make on their own (with a little adult supervision).

 Raspberry with Walnuts

 Breakfast Berry Parfait

 Crunchy Tropical Berry and Almond Breakfast Parfait

 Lunch and Dinner

Let mom relax over a leisurely lunch or a delicious dinner with these recipes. Be the grill master, and showcase your skills with burgers, ribs, steaks or salmon, and some easy grilled vegetable sides. Have the kids help prep, plus they can make dessert!

 Chili Maple-Mustard Ribs

 Citrus and Chili Salmon Steaks

 Beef Burger with Feta and Tomato

 Grilled steaks with Mustard-Herb Rub

Grilled Asparagus with Lemon

 Grilled Green and Yellow Squash with Basil

 Dessert Menu

Mom will love these make-ahead, kid-friendly desserts.

 Fresh Fruit Kebabs with Almond Crème

 No-Bake Mini Strawberry Cheesecakes

 Last, but not least, don’t forget to clean the kitchen and do the dishes!
