    I don't understand how you are supposed to consume the olive oil with this meal. Do you just dip each of the other ingredients into the oil?

    I would drizzle the olive oil all over everything EXCEPT for the deli meant. You could also use some low-carb veggies and serve with a classic bagna cauda. Artichokes and sardines would also be good to add to this. My wife and I have this all the time and refer to it as "snack dinner".

    This is delish! Yes, drizzle the olive oil and season with the salt and pepper.

    I just built the meal on a plate covered in spinach (>1oz) poured the olive oil on and few shots of vinegar.
    Added added about .5 of a net carb. .8 protein and 7 calories.

    Can you have these keto plates for lunch? or are these better to have only for dinner? If I have the Italian keto plate for lunch then could I have the Keto chicken and Feta cheese plate or Keto tuna plate for dinner? Just confused if the meals are interchangeable or should be reserved for certain times.
    Thanks

    The meals are all pretty interchangeable! On our meal plans, we will frequently call for dinner leftovers to be saved for lunch the next day.

    We made this for lunch. It is easy to assemble ahead of time and filling. Only thing we will change is to cook the prosciutto as the texture was not our thing.

    It's perfect for those days when you don't have time (or willpower) for cooking. For me, it's difficult to keep on my diet when I'm really hungry and have no time to cook, so recipe like this is a real saviour. No more excuses :) Simple, but good quality ingredients make it delicious.

    You can change the meals around any way you like. Just watch your total carb count for the day. :)

    That's a great idea. Caprese is one of my favorites as well.

    Can you use burrata cheese instead of mozzarella?
