A low-carb diet can offer many health benefits, but you may struggle to come up with meal ideas that fit your busy schedule.

Even if you’re not the most creative person in the kitchen and only have a few ingredients at hand, it’s easy to make tasty, low-carb meals that require fewer than 10 minutes of prep time.

All the meals are low-carb and weight-loss-friendly.

    This dish makes for a great breakfast that you can enjoy every day. It’s rich in protein and healthy vegetables, keeping you full for a long time.

  • Purchase coconut oil online.
  1. Grilled Chicken Wings With Greens and Salsa

Instructions:

  • Rub the chicken wings in a spice blend of your choice.
  • Place them in the oven and heat at 360–395°F (180–200°C) for about 40 minutes.
  • Grill until the wings are brown and crunchy.

  1. Bacon and Eggs
    Though bacon is a processed meat and not exactly healthy, it is low in carbs.

You can eat it on a low-carb diet and still lose weight.

If you keep your bacon intake in moderation and don’t eat it more than once or twice per week, there’s nothing wrong with adding it to your diet.

Ingredients: Bacon, eggs, spices (optional).

Instructions:

  • Add bacon to a pan and fry until ready.
  • Put the bacon on a plate and fry 3–4 eggs in the bacon fat.
  • If you want to add some flavor to your eggs, put a bit of sea salt, garlic powder, and onion powder on them while frying.
  1. Ground Beef With Sliced Bell Peppers
    This low-carb meal is perfect if you have some spare ground beef laying around.
