On low carb days I don’t eat rice, potatoes, wraps, pasta or any of those. But.. the struggle here might be that you miss some volume in the meal. I posted low carb recipes before, like the courgetti pasta, easy salad and cauliflower rice. This last one is such a good one, because you can make a lot of different variations on the recipe. Why not substitute the cauliflower for broccoli!
