Keto: Spring is in the air #1

Longer days with more light; the warmth of the sun coaxing everything into bloom. Yes, spring is in the air.  And while we all love cheesy casseroles and hearty stews, in spring our fancy turns to lighter, fresher meals with vibrant young veggies, cold plates, fresh herbs and tart bright flavors like the refreshing burst of lemon.

With this spring-inspired meal plan starts off the week with a breakfast of vegetarian keto scramble and grilled pork skewers with ribbon zoodles for dinner. (Eat leftovers for lunch, or skip it.) Other fare during the week includes a keto salad Niçoise, a seared salmon with asparagus and a lemon-flavored chicken soup.

This meal plan will keep you below 20 g net carbs per day.

    I do this all the time. My favorite is cucumber and mint. So refreshing. I also have an immersion pitcher with a slotted container for holding the fruit. I just keep adding water to it and change out the fruit and herbs every 4-5 days.

    Yes unsweetened carbonated water like club soda is OK.

    Can you add
    Propel to your water?

    If fruit is a no-no on a keto diet, is putting fruit in water letting any of the sugar/carbs into the water?

    If you are only using 1 or 2 pieces to flavor the water, the sugar release would be so minimal that it shouldn't matter. Berries are OK, so if you are concerned, I would use berries.

    I'm adding an orange to my water do I need to count that as any carbs? I let it steep a couple of days and just add water as needed
