Steak Salad

This great recipe is just one of many from Betty Rocker. Virtually no carbs (only from the fiber from the vegetables), and very high in protein.
The combination of lean protein and healthy fat accomplishes that perfectly – making this an ideal dinner.

  • 2 flank steaks – about 13- 1/2 lb each
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • fresh basil
  • 2 vine-ripened tomatoes
  • 1 avocado
Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Heat up your grill or skillet, and cook until desired doneness.
While the steaks are cooking, prepare your salad by filling two bowls with the salad ingredients. Add 1 cup of spinach to each, some fresh basil, 1 sliced tomato to each, and divide the avocado between them.
Slice the steak pieces over the salad and serve with a little fresh ground pepper.

Lauren’s Protein Pancakes

high protein low carb pancakes

Having this almost feels like you’re cheating –  full recipe can be found at fithiphealthy.com. I make these type of pancakes regularly, except I may add some chocolate whey protein in there for some extra protein.

I also substitute the coconut sugar with splenda or other zero calorie sweetener for when I especially have to watch carb and calorie intake. A great high protein, low carb recipe for breakfast.


  • 2-3 egg whites
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ½ cup almond, cashew, hemp milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla, a dash of cinnamon, and a dash of salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut sugar

Combine all ingredients and stir (be patient) until everything is mixed together, then pre-heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat so that the pancakes cook properly.  I do not grease or spray the pan, but you certainly can if you’re afraid that the pancakes will stick.

Then, pour desired amount of batter onto skillet (I use two tablespoons to make medium-sized pancakes), and cook until golden, a few minutes on each side. Transfer pancakes to a plate and repeat with remaining batter.
