Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Begin by cooking the eggs. Lower them carefully into boiling water and boil for 4-8 minutes, depending on whether you like them soft or hard boiled.
  2. Cool the eggs in ice-cold water for 1-2 minutes when they're done; this will make it easier to remove the shell.
  3. Place eggs together with mussels, avocado, cottage cheese, mayonnaise and spinach on a plate.
  4. Drizzle olive oil over the spinach. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.


Substitute canned sardines, anchovies, or other more adventurous canned seafood if that is what you have in your pantry!

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.

    Wow,this combo was a winner. Truly delicious and easy. I wasn't really looking forward to trying the seafood, but the combo of flavors on this dish is a refreshing change from all the cheese in so many keto recipes. Thank you!
