Citrus Avocado Vegan Mayo | Keto Recipe

Following the ketogenic lifestyle means giving up a lot of store-bought mayonnaise options, salad dressings and sauces because of how much sugar they contain. That certainly doesn’t mean we can’t have any. This amazing avocado mayo is so versatile, I use it on almost anything! It goes great as a salad dressing, fantastic as a sauce for salmon or chicken, and is a perfect eggless vegan mayo. Heck, I eat it as-is with a spoon a lot too!

I’m not the biggest fan of chicken, especially the breast part because it seems to be dry and bland. I take it back. Every single word! The minute this meal touched my lips, I was in heaven! The swooning noises coming from my boyfriend across the table confirmed that he agreed. Inspired by the lovely Jo Cooks, this keto-friendly stuffed chicken breast is worth the extra fuss it takes to prepare, twice over! Not kidding: Must. Make. Now!

Keto-Friendly Oven Dried Tomatoes | Recipe

These delicious oven dried tomatoes were made to be added into our cream cheese & prosciutto stuffed chicken breasts, but could absolutely be used as a salad topper or as a side dish. Not all of them made it to the recipe they were intended to since we ate a bunch as they were so tasty, but I suppose that is a great sign!

Winter means cold, and cold weather means soup season! Some people think it’s weird, but I could eat soup every day. Of course it would have to be a different flavour each time, and varying textures, but I would love it! I used to love cream of mushroom soup as a kid, but can’t eat the canned version nowadays. This vegetarian keto-friendly mushroom soup was inspired by the recipe published by “All Day I Dream About Food” a few years ago. It is absolutely delicious, and is sure to be thoroughly enjoyed throughout the frigid Canadian winters!

Date-night with the fiancé quickly went from movie-night to urge to cook a delicious ratatouille! I mean, who doesn’t love a great Disney movie with good company and good food. We gathered up the supplies, made a few tweaks to make sure it was a keto-friendly ratatouille, and the magic we cooked up is magnificent!  The version from the movie with the pretty little slices of vegetables is technically called Confit Byaldi, and it really gives the dish some class and a little fun. Not the best at slicing or want to get this dish made quickly? Cube the veggies and cook in the casserole in a stew form rather than slicing. It might not be as pretty but it tastes just as good!
