Looking for some new diet ideas that won’t break the bank? Here are 3 Quick Keto Friendly Low Carb Recipes made using 4 ingredients or less! Packed with protein, easy to make while traveling, and guaranteed to satisfy.

This first recipe is one of my favorite quick snacks. I usually eat this by itself with a spoon or with some fresh vegetables like celery sticks!

Low Carb Tuna Tabbouleh

Start with either a bowl or something to mix everything together in if you’re traveling, your tabbouleh salad container would work great!

Add into whatever you’re using a drained can of tuna, 1/2 cup of tabbouleh salad, and a little optional lemon.

Mix all of those ingredients up good.

For the tabbouleh salad you’ll be using a packaged one which you can find at most local grocery stores. Make sure to look for lower carb one.

The next one of these low carb recipes might not sound too appetizing but trust me, it’s delicious!

Low Carb Cream Cheese Tacos

Start by mixing together 4 ounces of cream cheese and 1-2 servings of a low sodium taco seasoning mix.

Add your mix into some deli slices and roll them up tight. Turkey, chicken, ham, and so on all work great!

You can now have your taco Tuesday…without the carbs.

The last one of these low carb recipes is made for those of you with a daily sweet craving aka ME!

Low Carb Cocoa Cashew Cottage Cheese

Add into a mixing bowl 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, 2 tablespoons of coca powder, 1/2 serving of crushed up cashews, and a little keto friendly sweetener like erythritol.

Don’t like cashews or want to lower the carbs even more? Switch it up with a lower carb nut like almonds!

Mix all of those ingredients together until everything is incorporated and/or your cottage cheese is smooth if you don’t like the look of it.

Pro tip? Put it into the fridge for a bit and it’ll have more of an ice cream texture!

Did you know that cocoa powder has no sugar in it and 2 grams of fiber per serving?

That’s it, there are your 3 new low carb recipes! You can easily switch up the flavors or protein of each recipe when you get bored and you can double or triple the recipes below to accommodate a bigger appetite.
