Mexican Tuna Steak, Sweet Red Peppers & Avocado Salsa

Jalapeno Poppers Smoked With Bacon And Cream Cheese
“Football season is upon us. I’m not a sports person, so for me, this means next to nothing besides dodging carb-loaded game day snacks and listening to my friends yell at the tv. Although indulgent, bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers are usually a safe bet as party food goes. My low carb jalapeno poppers recipe kicks the flavor up a level by adding one of my favorite “ingredients”: smoke.” Recipe: Ketogasm.
Cauliflower Parmesan Soup
“This creamy cauliflower parmesan soup is velvety and rich. It’s amazing how creamy the soup turns out considering there is no cream whatsoever. The trick to a creamy cauliflower soup without cream is adding in butter, or ghee if you’re dairy-free, and using a blender to puree. You can use either a stand blender or immersion blender, what is most convenient for you. Voila! Creamy without the cream and added calories!” Recipe: Ketogasm.

Roasted Pork Belly Bites With Braised Cabbage
“Bacon is a way of life for us keto folks. The best way to know you’re getting a quality piece of bacon is to make it yourself.. but that can take quite a bit of work and that’s a recipe for a different day. A much simpler and still delicious route to take is roasting some good old-fashioned pork belly.” Recipe: Tasteaholics.
Cheddar Chicken & Broccoli Casserole
“We love broccoli cheddar! The combination is delicious and we love finding new ways of incorporating it into our day.

Keto Chicken Soup
“When the the weather turns cold, or you’ve got a cold there are few things more comforting than a big warm bowl of chicken soup. I mean you can’t go to a book store and find a section full of Minestrone for Your Soul or Clam Chowder for Your Soul (well, maybe you could in you searched hard enough in New England). But for the most part chicken soup is synonymous with warmth…comfort…healing, and this low carb version doesn’t disappoint your tastebuds or your soul. ” Recipe: CastIronKeto.

Italian Sheet Pan Eggs With Artichokes & Prosciutto
“You can use this simple recipe as a template and create your own version of sheet pan breakfast. Try a combination of sun-dried tomatoes and Italian sausage, or sliced mushrooms and asparagus.” Recipe: EatDrinkPaleo.
Paleo Bang Bang Chicken (With Mango Cucumber Salad)
“I have wanted to make a paleo bang bang chicken for a long time. You might have come across the name bang bang chicken or bang bang shrimp in a hipster fusion restaurant but the name is actually Chinese (Szechuan) in origin. Also known as bon bon chicken, the traditional dish consists of cold, shredded chicken drenched in spicy sesame sauce. The chicken is tenderised by pounding with a heavy wooden stick, and as such, it is claimed that the name refers to the sound of the chicken being pounded.” Recipe: EatDrinkPaleo.
Shredded Chicken Chili
“I’m all about that meal prep and shredded chicken has become part of my regular routine… it’s always in the fridge ready to go! With a stock of shredded chicken on hand, this dinner comes together for me in a matter of minutes. If you aren’t much of a meal planner or prepper, you can quickly boil and shred the chicken before combining all of your chili ingredients or you can go the rotisserie chicken route and shred that up instead. See! Nutritious cooking doesn’t have to be that complicated!” Recipe: Ketogasm.
Keto Cheeseburger Casserole Skillet
“Gluten free buns are predominantly dry and the texture is off, and lettuce wrapped burgers always end up disintegrating. That’s where this delicious cheeseburger casserole comes in. All the flavors of your favorite burger in one convenient dish. So instead of dealing with a crumbly carb filled bun, or a the puddle left behind from a lettuce wrapped burger, pull up a seat and grab a forkful of this tasty entree.” Recipe: CastIronKeto.
Spicy Baked Chicken Meatballs
“These baked chicken meatballs are SPICY! If you can handle a solid roundhouse kick to your palate, you’re in the right place. Poblanos, habaneros, and jalapeños, oh my! Loaded with spicy low carb peppers, this chicken meatball recipe is not for the faint of heart.” Recipe: Ketogasm.
Low Carb Raspberry Glazed Chicken Wings
“Back to the chicken! Raspberry glazed chicken wings, where have you been all my life? The berry wing sauce is crazy delicious and so incredibly simple. Sweet, tart, unapologetically fruity. Arguably best of all, you just toss the ingredients in a casserole dish and walk away until your timer goes off.” Recipe: Ketogasm.
Low-Carb Smoky Pulled Pork Breakfast Hash

Low Carb Keto Chicken Tetrazzini With Zucchini Noodles
“Born out of an insatiable, nagging pasta craving and iron-clad willpower, I now present to you: low carb keto chicken tetrazzini. This chicken tetrazzini is made with zucchini noodles instead of spaghetti, and the sauce is entirely keto friendly. If comfort food and keto fell in love and had a baby, it would be this low carb casserole recipe.” Recipe: Ketogasm.
Keto Chicken Wings
“The blue cheese in this recipe is what really makes it drool-worthy, and it’s also a super nutritious component of the meal. Blue cheese is a good source of protein, potassium, and calcium, but it’s the moldy blue veins that run through it that really pack a healthy punch.” Recipe: CastIronKeto.
Keto Tandoori Chicken Bowls
“Needless to say this was not the greatest introduction into Indian food and I was a little jaded when we tried again a few months later at another Indian restaurant while out of town. I was amazed… The flavors, the spices, all of it was so far removed from our prior experience. I was absolutely hooked; chana masala ✓, tikka masala ✓, palak paneer ✓, but the one dish I can’t get enough of has always been tandoori chicken.” Recipe: CastIronKeto.
Slow Cooker Keto Chicken Tikka Masala
“Chicken Tikka Masala is a super delicious and flavorful curry that you can now make keto! You can serve this on its own and it’s an amazing dish, though you can pair it with some sides to “bulk” it up in a sense. I decided to serve this with cauliflower rice, with a 1/6 serving per person.” Recipe: Ruled.
Sesame Almond Zoodle Bowl
“The sesame almond zoodle bowl is the perfect vehicle for this amazing sauce. Peanut sauce has been one of my favorite dipping and drizzling sauces for everything from low carb egg rolls to an overflowing bowl of stir fry veggies. Sadly, I’ve recently begun reducing my peanut intake. I’ve been focusing on more recipes that incorporate keto friendly nuts and nut butters like cashews and almonds and I have fallen in love!” Recipe: Ruled.
Chicken Tender Lazone

Zucchini Pasta With Chicken & Pistachios

Instant Pot Smothered Pork Chops
“I love using the Instant Pot in the summer months when I don’t feel like heating up with kitchen with the stove or oven. These Smothered Pork Chops are a one pot dish that’s perfect for busy nights when we’re short on time but still want a homemade dinner that’s quick and easy.” Recipe: Ruled.
Keto Cauliflower Pizza Casserole
“Instead of using carb-loaded pasta as a base, we use steamed cauliflower. Not a cauliflower fan? Try the recipe anyway. It doesn’t taste one bit like cauliflower. Instead, it’s more like macaroni and cheese meets pepperoni pizza. The sauce is rich and creamy with notes of tomato, garlic, basil and oregano. The red pepper flakes add just a little bit of heat and complexity. Add in layers of pepperoni and gooey mozzarella cheese, and this recipe becomes comfort food nirvana.” Recipe: Ruled.
Low-Carb Cauli Cottage Pie
“This time around it is not topped with mash potato and a sprinkle of melted cheese (although feel free to sprinkle if you wish) but rather a healthy thick layer of delicious, healthy and creamy caulimash topped with the Paleo favourite, crispy bacon!” Recipe: Eighty20Nutrition.
Keto Egg Roll In A Bowl
“Keto egg roll in a bowl has been an all-time favorite dish of mine since embarking on a ketogenic lifestyle. It’s crazy popular in the low carb, paleo, and whole 30 circles for several reasons: it’s quick, it’s easy, and it captures the delightful essence of an egg roll without all the garbage added.” Recipe: Ketogasm.
Low Carb Chicken Enchilada Casserole
“I have two favorite foods, pizza, and enchiladas. If they were the only food available, I could eat them both every day and be happy. But when you follow a low carb diet, those are two types of foods that are notoriously full of carbs.” Recipe: 730SageStreet.
Low Carb Pizza – Turkey Crust Meatza
“Since then, I’ve tweaked a few things, played around with the ratios, cooking vessels, and a variety of toppings. I prefer to use a cast-iron skillet to get a nice crunch on the crust. Cast-iron skillets get super hot and stay that way, which is great for searing meat. Since your crust is made of meat and cheese, the meat is seared nicely while the cheese crisps up.” Recipe: Ketogasm.
Slow Cooker Chicken Low Carb Nachos
