I'm looking for some great recipes for dinner that will benefit me and my family.
My op requires I eat protein first... so say I have a plate with meat, veg and potato on it. I'll eat all the protein first. If I still have room, I move to the veg. If I then have room, I can move to the potato (carbs).
Anyway, I'm getting really sick of simply serving meat and veg/salad every single night. Rice/pasta I can do... but I can manage so little of it, and it's hogging precious protein space so I avoid it if possible.
Any recipes that use mostly meat/protein and veg and little else? I can just eat mostly the protein portion of my serve... so it doesnt have to be high in protein. Just lacking carbs (Cos carb-based dishes are always rubbish if you just don't eat hte carb portion... lol).

Can you have stir frys and curries but just not have them with the rice/noodles?
Or can you have maybe 1 mountain bread wrap and make lamb or falafel kebabs ?
Garlic prawns ( I do mine in tomato base sauce and feta)

Stir fry chicken or beef with the veg, and a bit of rice on the side

Now that it's getting colder, things like stews would be good. Chicken cacciatore, beef casserole, Osso bucco. Normally they are served with carbs, but you could skip that and just have them as they are, the meat and veg.

Like others have said wintery stews, casseroles etc, meat and veg soups, omelette, frittata, quiche, also my naturopath told me instead of rice, grate cauliflower and really lightly fry in in a tiny bit of oil (can add garlic if you want but it's yummy on it's own). It's really yummy and fulfills that 'void' of not having rice with stir fries etc and extra serve of veggies! For a sweet protein breaky, make a 'crepe' with an egg, a tsp sugar/sugar substitute such as xylitol, tsp vanilla and tbls cream, whisk and add to buttered frypan ad swirl to coat it, flip like a crepe and serve folded filled with ricotta mixed with tsp sugar/xylitol and tsp vanilla, and some berries.

San choi bow, tacos- with mince, kidney beans, cheese and sour cream for a variety of protein. Moussaka, savory mince, meatballs served with veg or salad, roast dinner without potatoes- you can roast some lower carb veg like carrots, eggplant, zucchini, capsicum etc.
