Blending the delicious flavors of seasonal summer veggies with the protein-goodness of egg whites, this menu item is a great wake-up call to a great day. With only 110 calories and 12 grams of protein, this hearty egg breakfast tastes like you just stocked up at the local farmer’s market.
We make breakfast time easy with this low carb scramble that will remind you of countryside summers in Tuscany. Add two large eggs directly to this dish, mix it with a fork and microwave for a perfectly scrambled egg breakfast. Kale, cooked Italian turkey sausage crumbles, onions, mushrooms, spices and more keep this easy-peasy dish simple and delectable.
Enjoy lunch on the beach with an easy and portable bar that is perfect to throw in your beach bag or cooler. The complementary blend of coconut and vanilla makes this high fiber meal bar the perfect go-to when time is tight. Almonds and walnuts help keep you satisfied and energized for a busy summer day.
The arrival of warm weather means the arrival of cookouts, barbecues and grilled chicken! Enjoy your favorite backyard barbecue flavors without even turning on the grill. This marinated chicken breast mixes sweet, tangy brown sugar with onions, garlic and vinegar to create a delicious mealtime experience. Flame-broiled and served on a whole-wheat bun, this classic grilled favorite lacks zero flavor. Serve up this menu item with a seasonal side salad filled with grilled summer veggies.
Who doesn’t love pizza? This guilt-free pie combines the traditional flavors of mozzarella and vine-ripened tomatoes with a pinch of basil. We serve it atop a thin, crispy crust that rivals your favorite slice at the beach or carnival. Indulge in this fan-favorite food without the unwanted grease and heavy-carbs that you’ll find on the boardwalk.
Roasted peppers, vitamin C-packed broccoli and edamame join forces with tenderly baked chicken to create a wholesome summer harvest meal! With the additional goodness of cauliflower rice and bourbon-flavored sauce, this healthy dinner has all the comfort food feels with good-for-you ingredients!
Short on time? No problem! This cool and refreshing meal is packed with protein and quick to make. Our ready-to-eat tuna salad can be placed on a crisp lettuce leaf or a multigrain roll for an easy, satisfying summer meal.
Summer means that fresh fruit like apricots are in season and better than ever! We put a savory spin on this sweet summer fruit by using apricot puree in this Asian-inspired meal. If you love ordering takeout and stir-fry is a go-to for you, this dish is a must-try! Sugar snap peas and carrots combine with a guilt-free glaze and tender chicken in this hearty, keto friendly dinner.
We transformed another cookout classic into a light and healthy meal delivered directly to your door! Don’t judge a meal by its name because this slightly odd-sounding dish has everything you could hope for: ground beef and sharp cheddar cheese with just the right amount of onion. So, forget the bun and pay homage to the classic cheeseburger with this low carb alternative.
Roasted chicken is complemented by the fresh flavors of warm weather produce. While this dish contains chicken as the main protein, we think the zucchini squash, asparagus and tomatoes are what stand out the most in this light but hearty menu item. Low carb and high in protein, this is the perfect weeknight dinner to enjoy out on the deck.
Heading to the beach? Going on a summer nature hike? Be sure to pack this perfectly portioned snack! This blend of roasted almonds, pistachios and peanuts is lightly kissed with sea salt to create a portable, keto friendly treat—anytime, anywhere!

Plus, each serving has three grams of net carbs and zero grams of added sugar. Combine them with summer fruit and veggies for healthy smoothies all season long.
Beat the heat and stay hydrated! B vitamins and electrolytes make this mix the go-to for when you’re craving a guilt-free alternative to your daily water intake. Super refreshing, this sweet and sour mix is a great addition to your summer menu. Need to quickly rehydrate with some electrolytes after a long day in the summer sun? These single-serving packets are the perfect blast of refreshing hydration. Quench your thirst and boost your hydration while sipping on the sweet and tangy taste of lemon and lime.
