In these unprecedented times, we all seem to be stocking up on food and supplies for the upcoming weeks. While both of us found it extremely tempting and struggled with grabbing pre-packaged/processed snacks from the pantry, we have recently tried to make a more conscious effort to remain healthy by making home-cooked meals that keep us full for longer. Living at home, we’ve had some time to experiment with recipes and make some tasty and nutritious meals. Here’s a collection of our favorite low-carb, veggie recipes, from breakfast to dinner. Many of these recipes can be improvised too with meat if you’re looking for some extra protein! Try them out, and let us know how they turned out in the comments below!
