According to About.com, a good low-carb dinner includes a plainly cooked source of protein and more vegetables substituted for sources of carbohydrates like potatoes or rice. Salad with an olive-oil based dressing is effective for adding more substance to the plate if the protein and vegetables do not seem filling enough.
About.com also recommends making low-carb versions of comfort foods. One way to cut out starches like rice and potatoes is to substitute them with cauliflower. These options satisfy both hunger and the psychological aspect of eating. Traditional cuisines low in carbohydrates are also effective and include French cuisine, Asian cuisine (excluding rice and noodles) and Greek cuisine, among others.
