I thought I would share a recipe post of a typical meal prep night for my family and I. Most people are fine with their protein choices of chicken, salmon, tilapia or other lean meats but struggle with what to make for their side dishes. Remember this picture on Instagram a couple weeks ago? I'll now highlight how to make the perfect side dish to accompany your protein on a low-carb day!
