Here at Food Art Inc, we love Southern Cuisine – and we know that, as a Louisiana couple about to get married, you love it too.

However, we also know that some of you may be searching for healthier alternatives when it comes to your wedding menu.

Can you serve low-carb Southern foods at your wedding, for example?

Yes, you totally CAN – and following, we have gathered some of the most popular recipes in this direction. Read on and find out more.

  • Cauliflower grits topped with shrimp. Grits are a quintessentially Southern food, and if you really want this dish on your wedding table without all the carbs that come with the “original” version of the recipe, you can always replace it with “cauliflower grits”. You will love this alternative!
  • Carb-free Southern chicken. Who doesn’t love fried chicken? For a low-carb alternative, skip the wheat flour and replace it with coconut flour. Not only will this keep your (and your guests’) carb intake in the lower range, but it will also add a special, exotic tint to your deep-fried chicken. It’s a win-win situation, really!
  • Pulled pork sandwiches. You won’t be able to use actual bread to pair your delish pulled pork with – but cabbage leaves are a wonderful option. Just serve your slow-cooked, tender pulled pork wrapped in cabbage or salad leaves and your guests will love it – regardless of whether or not they follow a low-carb diet.
  • Crab bisque. Another quintessential Southern food you definitely don’t have to skip altogether if you want a low-carb wedding menu. Just replace the dairy in it with delicious coconut milk and you’ll get the same consistency, and the same amazing taste (if not better, considering the great taste the coconut milk will add to the mix). You and your guests will LOVE this!
  • Cajun catfish. If you want to serve something really unique, catfish is what you are looking for. A low-carb version of this recipe doesn’t need much alteration – just use olive oil instead of butter and try to use homemade, natural, or bio spices. Other than that, this is a healthy dish every single guest will enjoy!
