Aren’t vegetables supposed to be good for you? Well, we all know they’re good for us. But there’s a reason we call them vegetables. They’re not all created equal.

Low-carb for weight loss isn’t new—in fact, it’s been around for nearly 30 years. But the high-fat nature of the diet has caused some people to shy away. But can you really make Low-Carb work for weight loss?

We put together this article of our favorite Low-Carb Sides since one of the most difficult choices we make on a daily basis is what to eat for supper. You may find us eating one of these sides with a steak or salmon on any given night. Having a few go-to sides on hand may make dinner planning a lot simpler! All of our side dishes are cooked in a dutch oven.

Brussels Sprouts Carbs

You may have heard that brussels sprouts are rich in carbs and should be avoided. Although they have more carbohydrates than other veggies like broccoli or spinach, they are still low in carbs and a wonderful addition to your evening dinners! A cup of brussels sprouts has eight total carbohydrates and three fiber, for a net carb count of five. If you get most of your carbohydrates from vegetables and berries, 5-10 net carbs for a supper side dish isn’t a terrible bargain! They’re delicious when tossed with bacon, nuts, and, of course, fat!

Broccoli Side Dish (Easy)

We don’t blame you if you’re sick of broccoli at this point. Broccoli is the vegetable of choice for the majority of people who consume vegetables, and with good reason. They’re low in carbohydrates, filling, and don’t induce bloating! We are definitely eating broccoli if we are not eating brussels sprouts. It’s all about the add-ons, too. Fresh shallots and garlic, as well as a spritz of lime juice at the end, give this dish a lot of flavor! Feel free to experiment with various spices and add-ins when it comes to these side dishes.
