Meal planning on a low carb diet is actually really simple: protein and veggies (and maybe fruit). And the easiest way to increase your calories is to add some healthy fats. Here's a few quick ideas:

Grilled boneless chicken breast seasoned with cumin and smoked paprika, topped with sliced avocado. Plus a steamed veggie like green beans.

Baked white fish fillet (tilapia, flounder, etc.) sprinkled with Mrs. Dash lemon-pepper. While the fish is baking, melt some butter (again, grass-fed or homemade), add some crushed rosemary and walnuts, and heat until it's fragrant and the walnuts have browned. Serve the walnuts on top of the fish. Plus a steamed veggie like broccoli.
