Low Carb Jambalaya

Rating: 5 stars 344
A jambalaya for the low-carb and paleo crowd. It's rice free, with extra veggies to make up the volume. Just as delicious and flavorful as traditional jambalaya, without the insulin spike!

Low-Carb Beef Cabbage Stew

Rating: 5 stars 51
I modified another recipe on this site for South Beach Diet® Phase 1. Not only is it on my diet, but it tastes delicious! Garnish each serving with sour cream.

Lomo Saltado (Peruvian Steak Stir-Fry)

Rating: 5 stars 13
I've never been a big stir-fry guy, but when it comes to lomo saltado, I make an exception. First of all, it's Peruvian--and I love to eat anything Peruvian. But, it's also a stir-fry that features not only meat and vegetables, but also French fries. Serve with steamed white rice and garnish with cilantro, if so desired.
