Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Chop or tear the lettuce into smaller pieces. Distribute it on plates or a large platter. Add the parsley.
  2. Layer the antipasto ingredients on top.
  3. In a mortar or small bowl, add basil, finely chopped chili, and salt. Crush with a wooden spoon or use the mortar and pestle. Sprinkle over salad and drizzle with olive oil.

Tip!

To keep the lettuce crisp, make sure to add the dressing at the time of serving, not beforehand.

This salad is based on classic Italian cold cuts but you can always personalize it to your own liking. For example, you can replace ham and salami with tuna or mackerel in tomato sauce. You can also add chicken leftovers, marinated shrimp, or crab meat.

For some extra protein, add some boiled eggs.

Keto: Enjoy losing weight (16:8) #1

If you want to lose weight while still enjoying amazing food, we’ve got the perfect meal plan for you.

To help turn you into a fat-burning machine, we’ve decided to employ intermittent fasting (16:8) in this week’s meal plan. This means your first meal will be at lunch — but feel free to drink coffee, tea, and of course, water throughout the day.

This mouth-watering ketogenic menu will keep you way below 20 grams of carbs per day. It includes some popular budget-friendly meals, such as our No-bean keto chili and Crispy tuna burgers, plus a few more elevated meals like our
Ribeye steak with loaded cauliflower mash.

Remember, you can always swap pricey ingredients such as ribeye with cheaper protein options such as chicken thighs or pork chops. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

By skipping breakfast, you’ll automatically save money that you could potentially spend on higher-quality ingredients such as grass-fed beef and organic eggs — a good investment for your body, the animals, and the environment.
