Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Or, even better, set your broiler on high.
  2. Divide the broccoli into florets and boil in lightly salted water for a few minutes. Make sure the broccoli retains it's chewy texture and fresh green color.
  3. Drain off all of the liquid and place cooked broccoli in a well-greased baking dish. Add butter and seasoning.
  4. Sprinkle cheese on top of the broccoli and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the cheese begins to brown. If you are using your broiler, this step can go more quickly. Keep a steady eye on the dish and remove when the cheese starts to brown.

Tip!

Frozen veggies are so convenient; they are always on hand in the freezer. For this dish, just thaw and remove any excess fluid before you add the other ingredients and pop in the oven.
Don't forget—broccoli is a perfect accompaniment for grilled or broiled fish. And it is tasty with any protein source, be it fish, meat, eggs or cheese!

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.

    No need to boil vegetables, steaming retains more flavor, more color & more nutrition.
