I assume you aren't going on an extreme low-carb plan like Atkins, you just want to lower your carb intake on your current plan. Check out low carb recipe websites, you'll find all kinds of delicious foods! Us Atkins girls love www.genaw.com. Here's some examples:

Fake spanish rice:

Zucchini lasagna:

Zucchini lasagna is DELICIOUS! You can use your regular lasagna recipe but sub zucchini for the noodles. It lowers the carb count tremendously. Check out the website, it will teach you how to sub the carbs in foods to make ones that are just as good.

Jicama hashbrowns:

I haven't had this but I want to try it soon. Apparently jicama fries up just like potatoes do in hashbrowns.

Another good website is http://lowcarbfriends.com/recipereview/. A lot of them don't have the calorie counts, only the carb counts, so if you're calorie counting you're going to have to count it yourself.

Good luck!
