February 8, 2019

6 “sweet” low carb recipes, plus tips for eating out

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and if your head is filled with visions of sweet treats, it’s quite possible to indulge in a very sweet yet sugar free and low carb Valentine’s Day with my tips and recipes here. Next, check out my low carb Valentine’s dinner for two, plus low carb desserts perfect for any romantic evening: 

Dinner for Two 

This decadent dinner has a “surf and turf” theme: 

Cauliflower Risotto

This creamy dish is the perfect start to your meal. Cauliflower transforms a typically high carb dish into a tasty low carb risotto. 

Bacon-Wrapped Filet with Blue Cheese Butter Sauce

Bacon and a rich blue cheese butter sauce turn this steak recipe into one worthy of a Valentine’s Day celebration. A spinach salad adds a fresh touch to the meal. 

Basic Steamed Lobster with Drawn Butter

Basic Steamed Lobster is anything but basic, and it’s surprisingly easy to make. 

Sweet Nothings 

End your meal with low carb Valentine’s Day desserts you can enjoy with a champagne toast (or cup of hot chocolate): 

Crunchy Almond Butter Protein Truffles

Here’s the perfect swap for high carb chocolate truffles. You also get a nice boost of protein with the Atkins Milk Chocolate Protein Powder that is in this recipe. 

Indulgent Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate covered strawberries are a sugar-packed treat, but this recipe uses sugar-free chocolate. 

Mexican Hot Chocolate

Keep up with the guilt-free chocolate theme and warm up with a low carb cup of this cozy Mexican Hot Chocolate. 

Ready to ditch the dishes and be wined and dined instead? Follow my tips here for a low carb Valentine’s Day meal at any restaurant. 

Happy Valentine’s Day!
