To start, you can brush up on your grill skills with my low carb grilling guide, where you’ll find tips for grilling everything from poultry and produce, to burgers and steak. Speaking of steak, check out these suggestions for picking the best cut of steak.

Once you’ve decided on your main dish (be sure to peruse our low carb recipes if you need some inspiration), you can start your meal with fresh guacamole and cut-up veggies, shrimp cocktail, artichokes with lemon butter, brie-stuffed grilled jalapenos or an antipasti platter featuring salami, prosciutto, a variety of cheeses, olives, marinated artichoke hearts, fresh veggies and hummus and whatever else you have on hand in your pantry that makes for fun finger food.
