If you are trying to stick to a low carb lifestyle, you may be pretty well aware of how hard it can be to get some variety in your food. Since BBQ recipes typically call for meats and vegetables, this style of cooking really does fit right in with your lifestyle.
There are some basics to keep in mind when you are trying to combine the BBQ and a low carb lifestyle. You will unfortunately have to give up adding the potato and corn to any of your BBQ creations. However, that should not really be a problem because you can use many different low carb vegetables instead of potatoes and corn.
As a general rule, vegetables are encouraged when living the low carb lifestyle. The exact carbohydrate amount in each different vegetable does largely depend on the serving size. Most vegetables contain dietary fiber, which can be subtracted from the total carbohydrate count because the fiber is not digested. Selecting different colored vegetables can help to make your low carb BBQ creation visually appealing. Not only does incorporating these colorful vegetables make your shish kabob look mouthwatering, but you are giving your body a huge dose of healthy phytonutrients and antioxidants too.
