    Any vegan keto information?

    Well, I’ve searched this site and it looks like you’d have to cobble something together yourself, vegan wise. Here’s a soup you could try. Vegan kale and spinach soup. Oh, sorry, I thought I copied the link. Just type vegan into the search box. Good luck!

    What if you do not like mayo?

    You can omit it and substitute with ranch or blue cheese dressing or other fatty sauce as you prefer.

    What if you don't like avocado?

    Then you can omit it. That will lower the fat content in the recipe somewhat though.

    I was craving a BLT and found this recipe. I had to make some changes due to ingredients on hand, I only had salad in a bag and cherry tomatoes. I slices and roasted the cherry tomatoes, and made a salad with all the ingredients, cutting up the bacon. I added a little bit of ranch dressing for added tase. It was delicious and will be an easy go-to lunch in the future.

    These recipes seem really good, but everyone of them I look at I am confused as to what the serving size to eat is vs how much the recipe yields. It says servings 2. Does that mean the nutrition facts and macros are for 2 servings or that the recipe yields 2 servings and the nutrition facts and macros are actually for just one serving? I would love to see that clarified on more of the recipes on this site.

    Hi, Candice! All the nutrition info listed for our recipes is per serving.

    As many as fit in with your daily carb allowance or to meet your protein needs.

    1 serving is over 600 calories?

    Yes, the nutrition information is listed per serving. If you prefer less fat or fewer calories, you could adjust the amount of mayonnaise or avocado.
