Recipe: Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Cracker Noodles
Can you say flavor BOMB?!
If you’re on a keto diet, you’re probably no stranger to eating meat. You may have conquered the bun-less burger, you’re a self-proclaimed master of the charcoal-grilled skirt steak, or you can make a mean low-carb chicken parm. Or maybe all three! (If so, please invite us over for dinner sometime. We’ll bring the cookies).
Although meat is a central part of the keto diet for many people, we cannot forget the humble veggie! There are plenty of downright delicious vegetarian dishes that can be just as filling and satisfying as our familiar favorites. That’s why we’d like to propose a challenge to our Fat Snax Family: Meatless Monday 💚
Meatless Monday is a movement that advocates skipping out on meat once a week in an effort to help reduce the environmental impact of the food that we consume. It also promotes a more plant-rich diet that helps reduce the risk factors of chronic diseases. Sounds like a win-win, right?
We’ve rounded up eight easy meat-free dinner ideas to help you jump-start your week with some plant-powered goodness. With that said, let’s jump right in!
The modest frittata is the ultimate ten-minute meal prep dinner. All you have to do is whip up some eggs and cream, chop up your veggies, and toss in some cheese, and you’ve got a filling, veggie-loaded meal that makes plenty of leftovers for breakfast the next morning.
A simple recipe with deceptively complex flavors, this salad hits all of the marks of a satisfying dinner. Creamy, crunchy, sweet, tangy, and fresh, this spinach salad is a sure-fire way to kick off your week feeling like a lean, green, salad-eating machine.
This recipe brings "licking the bowl clean" to a whole new level. Not only do you get to enjoy a bowl full of cheesy, creamy goodness, but you get to literally eat the bowl itself. The recipe may call for a cup of shredded chicken, but with all of that delicious cheese, you definitely won’t miss it.
This recipe might be one of the most mind-blowing ones we’ve come across. With the help of a nifty noodle called “shirataki” that requires essentially no cooking, this luscious dish comes together in under ten minutes.
The perfect summer recipe, this simple charcuterie-style dinner was made for enjoying al-fresco (perhaps while you sip on a low-carb cocktail?) Packed full of fats from the olives and cheese, this is a veggie-heavy dinner that won’t leave you reaching for your snack stash an hour later.
Picture this: crisp bell peppers blizzard-ed with cheese, guacamole, and salsa. So simple, yet so impressive-looking, this colorful, flavor-packed dish is what we like to call the ultimate crowd-pleaser. If you're feeling adventurous, try whipping up this cauliflower "meat" to sprinkle on top.
Everyone knows that the best part of a quesadilla is the cheese, so we’d advise loading this bad boy up! This recipe is for a simple cauliflower and cheese dish, but you can absolutely dress up your ‘dilla with some roasted veggies, fresh herbs, hot sauce, and sour cream.
If you’ve ever typed “keto recipes” into Google, you’ve probably heard of cauliflower rice before, but broccoli rice? Now that’s a new one—even for us! Bulk this dish up with extra veggies like mushrooms and bok choi, or toss in some cubed tofu for an extra protein-boost.
Alright, so we know that earlier, we said we "challenge" you to try out Meatless Monday, but we're confident that with insanely yummy recipes like these, there's no real challenge here. And hey, if all else fails, all of our products are vegetarian! We're not gonna say that we haven't eaten Fat Snax for dinner... 👀
