Sometimes a meal can be completely transformed by just the right side dish.  I mean you can have a plain chicken breast with a little seasoning and a plain vegetable or you can have a special side dish that really makes the meal a meal that you are still savoring after it's all finished.  Many times the side dish is what makes the meal.
This spicy pumpkin side dish is one of my favorites any time of the year. We had it again last night.  So good, either hot off the stove or cold the next day. I decided to post some of my favorite side dishes for you all as well as do a round up of other side dishes that I've found to share.

Zucchini Lime Salad - refreshingly good

Browned Butter Squash This one was incredible! Higher in carbs,  but good alongside some cooked turkey or chicen breast to really spice up your meal.

Smokey Cheese Cauli-mash Oh yes! Not just your ordinary faux-tatoes!

Mushroom Mozzarella Bake by Jennifer Eloff - mouth watering goodness.

Bacon Vinaigrette Marinated Asparagus and a Grill GiveawayBacon Vinaigrette Marinated Asparagus (and a grill give away if you check it out today) by Karen from Living Low Carb One Day At A Time.

Miracle Cauli-Tabbouleh by DJ Foodie - Oh my yums!

Roasted Brussels Salad by Lisa from 24/7 Low-Carb Diner - that looks amazing even if you don't think you like Brussel Sprouts!

Happy eating!!!


  1. WOW!!!! What an awesome mouth-watering line-up of side dishes, Ginny. I'm impressed!

    Thanks for including one of mine. That mushroom dish just went viral on FB and it's such a simple recipe.

    I totally agree with you too - the side dishes can really make or break a meal.

    1. I can see why it would go viral Jennifer! Thanks for sharing it!

  2. Everything looks so good! I love I Breathe...I'm Hungry...! She has some great meatball recipes.

    Sometimes I think I have more recipes than I'll ever have time to try. The problem is that many times I make a new recipe, and like it so much I want to make it again and again. Kind of a nice "problem" to have, huh?

    1. I know what you mean!!!! I see so many wonderful recipes and have so little time or energy to try them all! I keep collecting them though, lol, and someday...
      Yes, nice problem to have! LOL. Yes Mellissa has some great meatball recipes and many others as well. So many great food bloggers out there!
