mushrooms, carrots, zuchinni, cabbage are all nice additions to a roast. We have eliminated most carbs as well, so it has been tricky with dishes that always had a potato/noodle/rice with it. You could slow cook it with seasoning, then shred it and put it on salads. :) Good luck!

I make a rub out of a blend of favorite spices, or use McCormick Mesquite seasoning as a rub. Lightly cover meat with rub , lightly spray Pam on top. Wrap roast in foil then place in baking dish. Bake until done depending on size of the roast. Make mixed vegetables and sliced baked apples as a side. My family loves this.
Add a can/jar of spaghetti sauce, chopped tomato, onion green pepper, bake roast until done. Slice and Serve over spaghetti squash.
Add a can of Campbells golden mushroom soup and mushrooms to the roast. Bake until done. Serve with mashed cauliflower, and a salad as a side.

Mushrooms and onions? Cabbage? Those would probably be added later than potatoes normally would if you're using a slow cooker. Other root veggies like carrots or parsnips would be really good, too, but I don't know if those are too starchy/carby for you or not. Sweet potatoes, too. Cauliflower might be interesting as well.
