Keto Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Keto Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Though cauliflower is a low-carb vegetable, not all cauliflower crust pizzas are keto-friendly. In fact, most store-bought products and restaurant-made cauliflower crusts have around the same amount of net carbs as traditional flour-based pizza. As with most of your favorite dishes, your best option is to make it yourself -- especially when you want pizza. This is the most reliable way to get all the flavors and textures you crave without slowing your progress. All you need is the right ...

Easy Keto Smoked Salmon Lunch Bowl

Smoked salmon is rich in its own right and can stand up as a meal in and of itself. Today, I bring you a super simple lunch that can be put together in just a few minutes and is filled with delicious flavors.

Summer Tuna Avocado Salad

Summer Tuna Avocado Salad

Who knew avocado and tuna would go so well together!? I’m in awe of just how delicious this salad is. It has a mix of strong flavors complimented by the tart lemon dressing. Not to mention, it requires NO cooking and can be put together in just a few minutes! For this salad, I used an English cucumber, but if you have trouble finding it, you can use just a regular one. It should be fairly large, roughly 8 inches in length so that you can get enough for this recipe. You can also add in ...

Mushrooms & Goat Cheese Salad

Mushrooms & Goat Cheese Salad

Wow - this is one amazing salad!  The best part is the mushrooms sauteed in butter.  It helps keep the lettuce moist and pairs well with the balsamic vinegar dressing and crumbled goat cheese. For this recipe I used a baby greens mix from the store but if you can't find that mixture even just baby kale, spinach, and a little romaine will go a long way with this delicious dish.  Alternatively for the cheese, you could also try chunks of brie or feta.  Each would taste equally as ...

Homemade Keto Caesar Salad

Homemade Keto Caesar Salad

Here's how you can make a classic Caesar salad at home, with keto-friendly ingredients.  We add plenty of Parmesan cheese and dressing but skip the croutons in favor of crispy bacon.  If you've already got leftover chicken on hand, then you could make this for lunch in no time at all. The dressing uses anchovy fillets, giving it that classic flavor profile,  but if you can't stand them then feel free to skip it.  Another tip is that if you can find jarred anchovies then use those instead ...

Tangy Keto Broccoli Salad

Tangy Keto Broccoli Salad

What could be better than this tangy broccoli salad with bacon, cheddar cheese, pumpkin seeds, and a tangy dressing?  It's a great salad or side dish, but since it requires no cooking, it's also easy to prepare.  Most people would never notice that this is low carb, so it's a great recipe to bring when you need something to share! There's some erythritol in the dressing to replace the sugar found in many broccoli salad recipes.  If you don't like a sweeter dressing, then feel free to omit ...

Keto Warm Kale Salad

Keto Warm Kale Salad

Kale leaves pan-fried in butter then tossed with Dijon mustard dressing, and topped with crumbled feta cheese.  The dressing is my new favorite way to eat kale, and there's something seriously satisfying about tucking into a bowl that's both healthy and delicious.  This hearty salad works great as a nutrient-packed side dish for dinner, or simply as lunch. This is another great base recipe that you can make your own every time you create it.  Other toppings you should try include bacon, ...

Cold Zucchini Salad

Cold Zucchini Salad

This cold zucchini salad is the perfect summery salad for serving alongside BBQ.  We create this with sauteed zucchini, celery, lots of onion, and a mayonnaise-based dressing.  This salad is great for making ahead because it's even better if you let it sit overnight. There's no need to bust out the spiralizer or even the vegetable peeler because the zucchini is very simply chopped, which gives it a great chunky texture.  Try adding some rotisserie chicken and feta cheese for a heartier ...
