Ingredients

  • 10 oz. 275 g halloumi cheese
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp butter for frying
  • 2 2 avocadoavocados
  • ¼ ¼ cucumber
  • 13 cup 75 ml sour cream
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ ¼ lemon (optional)
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp pistachio nuts
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Slice the cheese into serving-sized portions and fry it in butter over medium heat until it becomes golden. A few minutes on each side should be about right.
  2. Serve with avocado, cucumber, sour cream, pistachios and lemon.
  3. Drizzle olive oil over the vegetables. Season with salt and pepper.

Tip!

Go ahead and vary the crunchy veggie... or better yet, make a medley. Celery, radishes, jicama, kohlrabi, and even romaine lettuce all work well with or as a substitute for the cucumber.

    Start low carb, on Sept 18, almost 4 weeks and lost only 4 pounds. What is wrong. I cut all the starches out of my diet. Have few glasses of wine per week ? Why haven't lost at least 5.

    The wine would be the problem I think.

    1 pound a week lose is a good and healthy weight loss, you're doing it right. If you cut out the wine all together, you'll find it drops off quicker. Add in some exercise, you're going for gold.

    Just starting out on Keto. I have done it basically last year lost 15kilos but have started to put a little back on and didn't get to goal. So this time I want to get to goal was 96kilos want to get to 78 by end of August, currently 84.5.

    If I added Celery, radishes and romaine lettuce
    1/ would the carbs be the same or higher, 2/ would I still get into Ketosis.

    I work and can't use some of your meals on the challenge either (need lunches that don't require heating), so I'm adding this for lunch in the challenge.

    Thank you.
