Vegetarian Taco Stuffed Avocados

Vegetarian Taco Stuffed Avocados

Vegetarian tacos often mean substituting ground beef, or chicken, for loads of highly processed vegetarian “meat” items which can also be very expensive. Other alternatives for vegetarians might include heaping scoops of beans or rice which are also not part of the ketogenic way of life. My solution? An old school vegetarian meat substitute that can be seasoned to impersonate multiple different recipes: walnut meat! It may sound strange at first, but raw walnuts have a unique texture that ...

Prosciutto and Goat Cheese Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette

Prosciutto and Goat Cheese Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette

When trying to incorporate more fresh veggies into your weekly meal plan, salads seem to be a quick and easy item, but it is also easy to get into a salad rut. If you find yourself using the same toppings and the same dressings give this combination a try! Dark leafy greens are the hearty base to stand up to piles of prosciutto and a dose of creamy goat cheese. Not a fan of goat cheese? That’s ok! You could swap for a mild cheese, but I encourage you to give goat cheese a try! It adds a ...

Maple Bacon and Walnut Kale Salad

Maple Bacon and Walnut Kale Salad

The idea of a kale salad is tough to swallow for some but try it smothered in warm maple walnuts and crispy bacon. I guarantee you’ll feel differently about the sturdy, vitamin-packed green! We all know the health benefits of bacon, right? Pair that with fiber-packed, iron-rich kale and you have a keto superfood salad! The robust kale leaves are smothered in rich, fatty nuts that have been lightly caramelized in the bacon grease and a hint of maple flavor. The accent of sweet onion paired ...

Simple Keto Bacon and Broccoli Salad

Simple Keto Bacon and Broccoli Salad

Here is one of the easiest and most delicious broccoli salads. This is a staple in my house because the recipe consists of only 6 ingredients. This salad makes a great base keto recipe where you can change up the ingredients to keep things interesting or suit your own tastes. It’s also a great idea for meal prep and packing lunches. Now, I usually use mayonnaise as the delicious base for this recipe, but I decided to spice it up a little bit and add even more flavor! You can make things ...

Vegan Cucumber and ‘Bacon’ Side Salad

Creamy, crunchy, and smoky all at the same time, this salad invokes the warmth of summer. It hits all the spots and is a great dish to bring to parties or cookouts, work potlucks, or serve with dinner. With minimal prep time, this is a quick and easy salad. I had my eye on testing out some vegan bacon lately using mushrooms and it was a hit! The mushrooms get nice and crispy and leave your home smelling amazing. While this salad is low on protein, it’s a great side salad for BBQ season ...

Balsamic Avocado Bowls

Balsamic Avocado Bowls

Move over, avocado toast! These bowls are great for a cookout, picnics, or game day. Balsamic vinegar and goat cheese is one of my favorite combinations for salads. It’s just too tasty! For this recipe, I used a little liquid smoke to add some extra flavor to the cheese. If you don’t have the smoke, you can always skip it then add the cheese without heating it first. If you like things spicy, then you can make this recipe hotter with Sriracha or chili flakes. These are also easy to ...

Maple Asparagus Salad

Maple Asparagus Salad

The Maple Asparagus Salad is an explosion of colors and textures. It’s crisp, juicy, and crunchy with a hint of sweetness. The maple balsamic dressing works wonders when paired with both feta cheese and asparagus. The maple asparagus salad is great for spring and summer dinners, cookouts, and picnics. There’s minimal prep time; the most time-consuming part of this recipe is cooking and preparing the asparagus spears. You also don’t have to dunk them in cold water afterward, however, it’s ...

Fat Boost Smoothie with Coconut Chantilly Cream

Fat Boost Smoothie with Coconut Chantilly Cream

Most days, I need a fat boost. First things that come to mind? Avocado and coconut. Avocado is perhaps one of the healthiest low carb foods you can have. Super low in carbs, high in healthy fats, and packed full of nutrients, dare I say it is a must for a low carb high fat keto diet. It’s smooth and buttery and used as a fruit in most Southeast Asian countries. As a result, it’s incorporated in a lot of sweet desserts, ice cream, and smoothies! Coconut cream has a higher fat content and makes ...

Keto Cauliflower Tabbouleh

Keto Cauliflower Tabbouleh

I’ve recently fallen in love with the convenience of cauliflower rice in a bag. It’s located in a huge number of grocery stores now in both the fresh food and frozen section, which makes preparing keto meals easy on a tight schedule! I’ve been thinking up new ways to use cauliflower rice and I was so excited to try a vegan mock tabbouleh recipe that would stay low in carbs but bring that flavor that I miss from the customarily grain heavy dish. I’m so glad I did because this dish is easy and so ...

Keto Taco Salad

Keto Taco Salad

Do you love Taco Tuesday, and feel like you can’t partake because of Keto? Well, look no further! You can still have your tacos but without the shells! These are great for all occasions, but we love them for family dinners or entertaining friends. There’s some minor food prep involved, but the most intensive part is disassembling the avocado [there’s some magic to that I haven’t mastered yet]. You can substitute the cheese for a Mexican blend or Pepper Jack, in addition to using jalapenos ...
