This recipe is great for lunch or dinner; light, healthy and full of flavors. Looking for low carb ingredients is not an issue at all. Plenty of recipes and ingredients are readily available, the real test is to create something which provides a balanced platter. I am not convinced lowering the carbs but filling the plate with fatty foods is a good balance, which is the key! Fat choices should revolve around healthy fats like butter, olive oil, nuts etc. in good proportion. Try this delicious recipe and see what you think.
