Craving a big, juicy burger for lunch? Skip the greasy, fattening food truck favorite and whip up your own carb-free version at home.

Loaded sweet potato chip nachos

Nachos without the chips? We'll admit, we never though it was possible. The sweet potato chips that serve as the base for this dish, though, do a pretty good job of pulling it off.

Spinach, goat cheese and avocado grilled cheese

A healthy twist on an American favorite, these bite-sized BLT cornbread sandwiches are just as delightful as the real thing and not nearly as bad for you.

Lime beer-braised salsa hot dogs

Steak fajita stuffed avocados

Hello, healthy fats. We love food truck fajitas, but those heavy tortillas are so not good for you. A carb-free dish with all of the zesty flavor of your favorite Mexican food, without the empty calories this is a must-try for lunch.

Chili-orange salmon soft taco

Food truck tacos are just plain tasty. They're also stuffed with greasy meats and topped with fattening cheeses and sauces. This lighter version uses salmon, and can be made right in your own kitchen.

Gluten-free stromboli

For those that have a love for Asian cuisine, you'll love this light take on traditional stir-fry. Switching out rice for quinoa, this dish is all the deliciousness you crave without any extra poundage later.

Spicy chicken curry-stuffed pitas
