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!

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 ...

Keto Asparagus, Egg, and Bacon Salad

Keto Asparagus, Egg, and Bacon Salad

An asparagus salad topped with bacon and eggs, then dressed with a tangy dijon vinaigrette.  The dressing is easily made with pantry staples that you likely have on hand.  That makes it great for whipping up any time you find great asparagus. You can save time by making extra hard-boiled eggs or bacon when you cook them for other recipes.  That way, all you have to do is blanch the asparagus and create the dressing.  I like to have both in my fridge at all times. Yields 2 servings of ...

Easy One-Pan Ground Beef and Green Beans

Easy One-Pan Ground Beef and Green Beans

This one-pan meal is an easy lunch to whip up with just a few simple ingredients.  First, we pan-seared ground beef with butter then tossed in fresh green beans and served with a side of sour cream.  We used fresh beans because they provide more texture and snap.  For a sprinkle of extra flavor, try adding some shredded Parmesan over the top of the dish before serving. This recipe is great for meal prepping lunches ahead, especially if you make extra servings and divide up into ...
