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.

    Made this today but as I don't like chicken I left out the broth. It really didn't need any more liquid. Was very tasty.

    I added some nutmeg and left off Parmesan cheese. Very yummy side. Also great with fresh minced garlic.
