High Protein Shakshuka

Easy Dinner with a Protein-Packed Shakshuka

As the day winds down, it's helpful to conclude with a meal that's not only satisfying but also aligns with our health and nutritional goals. Enter the High Protein Shakshuka – a versatile dish that brings warmth, flavour, and a nutrient-rich profile to your dinner table. 

Cook Once Eat Twice

Last week I cooked Low Carb Chow Mein. (You can check it out here). These recipes use the same base of onions, minced beef, mushrooms and capsicum. This is the perfect dish to bulk cook. Simply double the base ingredients and then divide in two. Add the cabbage, curry and sour cream for chow mein. The spices, eggs and passata for Shakshuka. Voilà-two meals that taste completely different!

The Significance of a High-Protein Dinner

Incorporating a high-protein meals in your day is crucial for muscle repair and growth, especially if you've engaged in physical activity. Protein also plays a vital role in keeping you satiated, reducing hunger and making it less likely to binge on high carb foods. Our High Protein Shakshuka, featuring grass-fed beef mince, eggs, and cheese, serves as an excellent source of high-quality protein, making it a perfect dinner option.

Low Carb for Better Health

Part of the reason Low Carb Real Food is so important is that it is a powerful way to lower insulin.

These days the majority of adults have higher than normal insulin levels. This is as a result of insulin resistance. 

High circulating Insulin is harmful to our health 

  • It is harmful to our blood vessels
  • It is harmful to our kidneys
  • It is harmful to our eyes. 
  • It is harmful to our brain 

It affects every organ in our body and every cell right down to our mitochondria. 


the result of all of this is that you feel tired and hungry. You get brain fog, and develop diseases like high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer's Disease. 

Sounds Grim 

But it doesn't have to be that way. Eating a real food diet, lower in sugars and starches is a powerful step to improving your health. 


This is why I create easy recipes for you to try.
