Finding low carb products that are satisfying to you, could make your weight loss SO much easier.
In this post we are breaking down five low carb products that I feel like everyone needs to try on their weight loss journey. These are products I use all the time myself and products that my clients are also obsessed with so I know you will love them too.
I feel like a lot of the times when people start living a low carb lifestyle, they feel like they’re giving up something.
But the reality is, especially now, there are so many low carb alternatives to your favorite things. So you never have to feel like you’re missing out. And that’s not to say you can never have the real thing once in a while, of course. But the truth is having a lot of these high carb products on your weight loss journey is not the best for your weight loss or health.
A lot of low carb products give you the same satisfaction that a lot of their high carb counter products would have. But also a lot of the times they’re more purposeful, meaning they have more protein or fat in it. This is going to make them much more satiating.
1. Red Rose Teas
These Red Rose Teas freaking dessert teas! And everyone I share them with tells me how instantly obsessed with them they become.They have fun flavors like blueberry muffin, caramel apple, strawberry shortcake, lemon pie.
They are sweetened with Stevia and are so delicious. Stevia comes from a plant that’s been used for a very, very long time. Stevia is a great sugar substitute to use on your low carb weight loss journey. I don’t recommend to overdo the Stevia, but having it here and there is totally okay. I found these just randomly looking at Stop & Shop in the tea section that was like, ooh the blueberry muffin one sounds fun. So I grabbed it and I was just blown away by how much it actually tastes like a blueberry muffin, how delicious it was.
So many of my clients swear by these. I love them. If you’re someone that craves something sweet at night, this is such a great alternative because it really hits a spot, but it’s just tea and it could totally help you on your weight loss. I can’t even tell you how many clients I’ve had stop late night snacking cause of these teas.
2. Lily’s Chocolate
If you’ve experimented with any kind of low carb baking, you’ve probably heard about Lily’s chocolate before. They are like the queens of chocolate when it comes to low carb.
They’re sweetened with Stevia, which is a natural sweetener. I just think they taste so good. I’ve never heard anyone say that they didn’t like them.
They have fun flavors like hazelnut milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and milk sea salt that to me tastes similar to like a Carmelo. You will not be disappointed by them.
They also have baking chips that you can use and peanut butter cups.
3. Bean Based Pastas
A huge lifesaver for any pasta lovers out there. There’s so many different kinds. And I do feel there are better ones than others. My favorite brand personally taste-wise, texture-wise, and nutrition-facts-wise are Explore Cuisine.
The ones that I recommend from Explore Cuisine are edamame pasta or the black bean pasta. The only ingredients in these are just edamame or black beans and the nutrition facts are awesome. It’s 20 grams of carbohydrates, 13 grams of fiber, and 24 grams of protein. So that means that there are only seven net carbs in this serving size, which is two ounces and 24 grams of protein. You can actually use this as a protein source. A lot of the other bean-based products out there are not this high in protein or this low in net carbohydrates.
So this one to me is my absolute favorite. You put whatever sauce you want on it and it takes the flavor of that and this one has a real feel of pasta, I personally think. I mean, obviously it’s not pasta, but I’m going to just magically make low carb pasta that’s exactly like the high carb one and have it be the same, but this is as similar as it gets.
4. Zevia soda replacement
These Zevia soda replacements are always in fridge! My personal favorites are the root beer and cream soda. Just like the red rose tea, these are a perfect treat to have at night if you are feeling something sweet. They are sweetened with stevia too. Unlike regular soda they have no caramel coloring, which is a nasty chemical we don’t want to be consuming!
I’ve basically got my whole family hooked on these. So if your family is soda drinkers then these are a great swap.
5. Protein Powder
So I love eating whole real foods. And I do recommend that my clients focus on whole foods as the main part of their diet. However, I think getting a good protein powder can help you boost the protein of your meals, which I see a lot of people lacking in, especially for breakfast. If you’re someone that needs quick, easy breakfast ideas that are low carb, a protein powder can be an easy way to make a sweet breakfast, still high in protein, low carb, and that tastes delicious and that’s easy for on the go.
Ways to use protein powder
You can easily mix it in a smoothie or you can easily put it in overnight oats or yogurt. There are so many things you can do with it. You can even bake with a lot of protein powder. So getting one that you really liked the flavor of, and then it has a simple ingredient list is what you want to look for.
The best low carb products for protein powders
My personal favorites are…
Collagen Fuel by Primal Kitchen – I think this one taste the best
Tone it Up – plant based
All these three protein powders have minimal ingredients. They’re all low carbohydrates and high in protein. Some protein powders are actually higher in carbs than protein. So you just want to make sure you look at the label before you buy one to make sure it’s low carb.
I hope that you try these products and you loved them. And if you do try them, I would absolutely love to know what you thought of them and if you enjoyed them.
