Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.

These recipes showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as lean proteins and moderate portions of dairy.

In this adaptation of a Chinese takeout classic, fresh orange juice and a soy-based sauce create a sweet and savory glaze for salmon. We’re serving the fillets on a bed of fried rice, brimming with delicious cool-weather vegetables. (Cooking the egg separately from the vegetables before mixing it all together ensures perfect texture!)
