Father’s Day is Sunday and if you are at all like me, you haven’t planned a darn thing. You may have purchased a present online a little late in the game and it hasn’t arrived yet. You’ll probably grab your kids and head out on Saturday to grab a few small items for them to give the man in your life, and you’ll have them make homemade cards, because what says I Love You, Daddy more than a piece of construction paper with crayon drawings? And now you’re wracking your brain, trying to come up with a yummy low carb, gluten free meal to feed your man.
I wouldn’t say that the majority of the recipes on this blog are manly. But I scoured my archives to find a few “man-food” items, or at least Father’s Day appropriate items. So whether you are going to make him breakfast in bed, a nice dinner or ply him with alcohol and some nice dessert, I’ve got you covered. All delicious, all highly recommended and all appropriate for a low carb diet!
Breakfast or Brunch:
Real men might not eat quiche, but they should eat this quick and delicious Zucchini Parmesan Frittata
Looks like coffeecake, tastes like a cinnamon roll. It’s Cinnamon Roll Coffeecake!
This Cheesy Skillet Bread is one of the most popular recipes on my blog, beloved by men, women and children alike!
Make your lumberjack a stack of these heart-healthy Walnut Flax Pancakes.
Spicy Candied Bacon. ‘Nuff said.
Brie and Caramelized Onion Stuffed Burgers. ‘Nuff said.
Spicy, tangy and cooked over an open flame. Definitely man-food. Chipotle Lime Grilled Chicken.
If your grill isn’t working, or it’s raining, or if your man just likes exotic flavours,
The ultimate low carb grilled cheese! Brie, Ham and Green Apple Panini.
He loves mashed potatoes and mourns the fact that he can’t have them on a low carb diet.
Trust me, this Sour Cream and Cheddar Mashed Cauliflower will have him singing a different tune!

A refreshing Sugar-Free Mojito.
For the dad with a slightly more refined palate, try a Rosemary Grapefruit Martini.
Seriously addictive and great with beer or a cocktail. Rosemary Garlic Parmesan Cocktail Nuts.
Fried Green Tomatoes. Hey, they’re fried, that must mean they’re man-food.
Plus I couldn’t come up with any more manly cocktails!
Beer in caramel sauce. ‘Nuff said.
All cupcakes should be filled with Peanut Butter Cream! Peanut Butter Cream Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache.
Yes, another peanut butter dessert. What can I say, my man loves peanut butter!
For the man who doesn’t like chocolate. Gasp! What??? Apparently they do exist.
If it’s really hot and you want to cool off with a summery ice cream, this
Strawberry Rhubarb Swirl Ice Cream will do the trick.
Happy Low Carb Father’s Day!!!
