Potato Chips

Swap out salty, greasy potato chips for naturally low-carb Zucchini Crisps.

Pasta

Do you miss good ol’ spaghetti and meatballs? You can enjoy flavorful Zucchini Noodles with Spicy Chicken Sausage instead.

Ice Cream

We can all scream for ice cream, especially if it’s low-carb ice cream. Whether you want low-carb chocolate ice cream or low-carb coconut-vanilla ice cream, Atkins has plenty of delicious low-carb ice cream recipes to pick from.
