Green Beans

2.7 g carbs / 100g Green beans are a delicious fresh snack or can be used in a tonne of different dishes from salads, to stir fry’s, stews and more.
Capsicum Green


2.5 g carbs / 100g We’ve specified the green variety of capsicum as it’s generally lower in carb than the red or orange varieties which are usually much sweeter. Don’t be afraid of them though, the red capsicums only contain 3.5 g of carbs per 100g so are still very low carb and delicious!


1.2 g carbs / 100g Celery is loaded with essential minerals and vitamins such as folate, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C and vitamin K. Add it to salads, stir-fries or fill the curve with peanut butter for a yummy snack.

4.8 g carbs / 100g Onions aren't super low, but I added these in because they do add a great flavour to most low carb dishes. They come in white, brown and red (Spanish) which look and taste great in any meal.

Radish 1.9g

1.9 g carbs / 100g The colour of these amazing vegetables is reason enough to love them, let alone for the fact they are super-low in carbs and a perfect addition to salads!

1.6 g carbs / 100g The Zoodle craze has put zucchini in the spotlight for low carbers, used as a low carb pasta/ noodle substitute. They are also a great addition to stir-fries, grilled, or added to a bolognese.
