Looking for a new low-carb recipe to try? Here are a few from our Recipe Finder to consider. When determining what exactly “low-carb” means, we used basic guidelines from the Mayo Clinic: Typically, those following low-carb diets stick to 20 to 60 grams of carbohydrates per day (for perspective, the daily recommended amount, based on a 2,000 calorie diet, is 300 grams). Pick, choose and modify the recipes as needed to suit your diet.
