If you dislike cooking, then fret no more. There are ways to have a healthy, low-carb diet without ever turning on the stove or pushing a button on a microwave. This meal plan may involve a drive-through and it may involve eating fresh or cold foods, but all you have to do is open your fridge. A Healthy, Low-Carb Day of No Cooking The following meal plan is for a day's worth of eating. The total carb count is 33 grams net carbohydrates, 25 grams fiber, 120 grams protein, and 1,567 calories. Mealtime Foods Breakfast 1/2 cup all bran cereal with extra fiber1/2 cup milk3/4 cup strawberries3 tablespoons sliced almonds Lunch Go to Wendy's. Order two grilled chicken breast sandwiches and a caesar's salad. Do not eat the buns and croutons. Snack 3 large mushrooms, each with 1 tablespoon of cream cheese-based cheese spread Dinner Chicken club wraps using 3 large lettuce leaves (you can use low-carb tortillas, but will need to adjust the carb and fiber counts)4 ounces of cooked chicken from the deli counter or from a supermarket whole roasted chicken1/2 cup sliced red pepper1 plum tomato, sliced1/2 avocado1 tablespoon mayonnaise Dessert Raspberry vanilla cream – No cooking, but requires a blender for 5 minutes Calories can be varied by adding and subtracting protein and fat, or, if your particular carbohydrate needs vary from this, by changing amounts of carbohydrate foods. Create Your Own No-Cook and Low-Carb Daily Meal Plan You can create your own menu of food for the day by rotating staple meals. For example, cereals and smoothies are a good option for breakfast, while different types of salads are usually a good choice for lunch or dinner. Most of the carbs in vegetables and salad ingredients come from fiber, so the net carb count is extremely low. Use leafy greens such as lettuce, cabbage, kale and spinach to make your base, then add low-carb vegetables to brighten the flavor with bell peppers, zucchini, and cucumbers and squeeze on some lemon juice. To jazz up your salad, make it a Mediterranean salad adding grape tomatoes, feta cheese, olives, red wine vinegar and canned tuna. Breakfast can be a low-carb, high fiber cereal with milk and berries. Or, change it up and make a protein shake, which is great if you need to grab it on the go. Protein shakes can include a low-carb protein powder, fresh berries, crushed nuts, and almond or coconut milk. Another great morning, lunchtime or snack option can be organic or nitrate-free deli meats that you can eat with or without an ounce of cheese. Fast food restaurants are also an option, the rule of thumb with keeping your diet low-carb is to eat the protein and ditch the bread, potatoes, or starchy foods. Was this page helpful?
