    1/6 oz baby spinach & 1/2 c. Mayo per serving? That's when I used the converter for 1 serving since my husband won't eat it. Seems....off?

    I don't like mayonnaise, what can I substitute that with? Or can I just exclude it all together?

    The mayo is there to help add fat. You can also use sour cream or cream cheese if you'd prefer either of those.

    Yes, just no sugar in them!

    Smoked Salmon is purchased prepackaged and has been pre-cooked and smoked

    I have never found a brand of smoked salmon that is made without sugar, and yet it is used all the time in keto recipes. Can someone provide a brand, or perhaps an explanation? Bacon falls into a similar category: so many bacon recipes, yet never is it recommended to seek out a brand made without sugar (Nieman's Appkewood Smoked Bacon is sugar-free, but sooo expensive). My sugar addiction is triggered by both of these meats because even with less than 1g carbs per serving, the sugar is present and tasteable. Why is there no conversation about this? Thanks for any insights...

    I found this to be too much mayonnaise. I lowered it to 75 grams and my macros and kcals were OK

    Yes, canned salmon is allowed. It is not a good sub for this smoked salmon though, just to clarify.

    Yes, cucumber is a good low carb vegetable.

    175g of salmon in one go would have been way too much, I opted to only put in 120g, a whole packet. + The mayo it was a wise decision, I am stuffed
