On a hot summer day, I love a great (and chilled) side dish like broccoli salad. For this recipe, you can use fresh broccoli or frozen and it’s a great side dish for your next barbecue, or with some yummy steaks! For my recipe, I show the instructions using frozen broccoli which was easier forContinue reading “Low Carb Broccoli Salad”

What’s better to serve on top of your tacos than some fresh guacamole! I love how creamy and filling guacamole can be, without all the carbs and it’s healthy for you too 😋 This recipe is quick to make, perfect for Taco Tuesday, and low carb and keto friendly. The ingredients are simple and IContinue reading “Homemade Guacamole”

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Heads up, this is not a low carb or keto friendly recipe, but it’s so delicious! Corn is a starchy vegetable so it’s best to be avoided for a low carb diet, but corn definitely has health benefits. Corn is packed with fiber, vitamins and minerals and is low in fat. If you’re looking forContinue reading “Grilled Corn on the Cob”

Shiritaki noodles are a great low carb option for your next stir fry dinner, have you heard of them?? Here’s a link to the one we buy! https://www.nasoya.com/products/pasta-zero-spaghetti/ I like how the noodles are still in a noodly shape, which makes them seem cool for our toddler too.

Roasted Cheesy Zucchini

If I can add cheese to any side dish, I will! This makes your zucchini so tasty, and cooks up so fast in your oven. We use our toaster oven that has bake and broil settings on it so we can bake up stuff like this without heating up our whole house in the summertime.Continue reading “Roasted Cheesy Zucchini”

Italian Sausage Links in Sauce

I know my title sounds funny, but I am so used to writing pasta after everything, I had to change my wording for low carb dishes that don’t have pasta. I cooked the links and prepared the sauce as if I was going to serve on top of a bed of pasta, but instead servedContinue reading “Italian Sausage Links in Sauce”

Sautéed Mushrooms

As a kid, I couldn’t stand the texture of mushrooms, but now as an adult, I just love ‘em! Before starting our low carb diet, we would order them as a topping on pizza but that was about it. These last few weeks, we’ve been adding more low carb veggies to our diet and mushroomsContinue reading “Sautéed Mushrooms”

Mediterranean Cauliflower Rice

Perfect addition to our Greek and Mediterranean menu here at home 🇬🇷 I used frozen cauliflower rice for this recipe, but you can also use fresh cauliflower. You would need to “rice” the cauliflower by putting the florets in your food processor and pulsing until they are close to the consistency of rice. If youContinue reading “Mediterranean Cauliflower Rice”

Greek Pork Chops

These pork chops are marinated overnight and sautéed on your cast iron skillet, cooked under 10 mins and so juicy. If you’re tired of dry pork chops, I cannot stress enough that they need to be marinated. Making a quality marinade for your meats is more important than how you cook them! As long asContinue reading “Greek Pork Chops”

Savory Sautéed Green Beans

I’ve made sautéed green beans many times, but this time I wanted to update and make it keto friendly! Using fresh green beans is always my go-to, but you can also use frozen. I blanch the green beans in the beginning of the recipe so they don’t get mushy or too browned when they getContinue reading “Savory Sautéed Green Beans”
