3 Low Carb Spring Dinner Menus | Atkins

Colette's Blog

April 13, 2018

Now that you’ve given your #AtkinsPantry a spring clean and the weather is warming up, it’s time for a special meal that celebrates the fresh flavors of spring. I’ve pulled together a variety of low carb recipes that feature vegetables and fruits currently in season right now, such as artichokes, asparagus and arugula and rhubarb and strawberries. You can mix and match any of these recipes or follow the menus I’ve recommended.

 Surf and Turf

There’s nothing more satisfying than a hearty grilled steak, especially when fresh herbs add a burst of flavor and Asparagus Wrapped in Chili-Spiced Bacon sizzles as a side dish. You can’t go wrong when you start with shrimp cocktail, which is a traditional part of any steak dinner, and the meal ends on a sweet note with Vanilla Mousse with Rhubarb Sauce.

 Seafood Feast

You can test your sushi-making skills with this low carb sushi recipe that features cream cheese instead of rice (watch the how-to video here!). The Spicy Ahi Tuna Salad is bursting with vegetables, while Strawberry Granita offers a light and refreshing finish.

Spring Comfort Food

This menu is a light take on the heavy comfort food you may have been craving during the colder months. You start with artichoke leaves dipped in rich lemon butter, while chicken and mushrooms pair perfectly with roasted asparagus. And there’s pie for dessert!
