Recipe Low Carb
This cereal called quinoa is high in carbs, like any other cereal, but at least it contains those complex and healthy carbs with which we are allowed to enjoy our lunches. I read only well about this quinoa, not only about its good carbs but also about the many proteins it contains, vitamins and more, fibers, minerals, etc., etc. So, although it shouldn't appear on a low-carb menu, with about 23-25 grams of carbs per 100 grams of cooked quinoa, I confidently include it in place of any other unhealthy carbs.
& # 8211 100 grams of white beans from a can
& # 8211 several slices of smoked salmon
Quinoa is boiled & # 8230 cannot be eaten as such although they are tiny little seeds. So boil water with a little salt (or, even better, some chicken or vegetable soup). When the water boils, add the quinoa and leave it on the stove for about 15-20 minutes, until the beans start to soften and dissolve. I left it to cool a bit and I mixed it with all the vegetables above, finely chopped.
I also prepared a great dressing, my number one favorite, if I want to eat salads with dressing:
& # 8211 a small soy yogurt (other times I used normal yogurt 0% fat)
& # 8211 3 crushed garlic cloves
& # 8211 a tablespoon of olive oil
& # 8211 a teaspoon of dried dill, half a teaspoon of salt
Mix all together and pour over the salad. Add the salmon slices and the meal is ready. This is today's lunch box. However, although it is extremely healthy, we try to keep the meal at 30-40 grams of carbohydrates so as not to exceed the proposed limits.

Salmon with mango and avocado sauce
A recipe from the category "It's so good that you don't want to share it with anyone". Salmon with mango and avocado salsa seems like a sophisticated recipe, delicate or fancy, if you will, but you have to believe me it's not like that at all.
I kept trying to avoid salmon in my diet, because I didn't have many good experiences with it. Every time I ate, there were bumps on my skin and I said, clearly, I'm allergic. What I didn't take into account was the fact that I only ate salmon from one restaurant, which I frequented, and I didn't think that maybe the allergy came from other causes, not necessarily from the salmon itself. That was until one day I gave up going to that restaurant and decided to prepare it at home.
