Low Cab Side dishes to partner with your ulam. 

For Pinoy cooking, the concept of sides does not really exist. Rather we have a pairing of main dish (proteins) and vegetable on the table. Plus rice of course. On my budget table I’m always skipping the veggies since they’re not as popular and always results in drama in the table.

But ever since I started with my (not very strict) low carb journey, I have began again with the pairing and is eating the veggies as my sides instead of rice. These are mostly buttered and or sauteed, but I listed them just to give you an idea of what you can do for yourself.

In order to grow my personal blog, Relaxlangmom earns revenue in a few different ways. I publish several sponsored posts each month, which are always labeled at the top. I also sometimes earn an affiliate commission on the sales of products I link to. I feature only items we genuinely love and want to share, and this is an arrangement between the provider and RLM (readers never pay more for products). These are the ways we support Relaxlangmom, and allows me to run the site and engage with this community I truly love. Thank you for reading!
