  2. Put the salmon in portion-sized pieces in a large baking dish or on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  3. Combine the carrots, parsnips, green beans, and olive oil in a medium-sized bowl, mixing well. Season with salt and pepper. Then spread the vegetable mixture around the salmon or place in a separate baking dish. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until the root vegetables are tender.

5 minute hollandaise sauce

  1. Crack the egg into a high and narrow mixing bowl or large measuring cup or beaker.
  2. Melt the butter in a pourable container, either in the microwave or on the stovetop.
  3. Blending the egg with an immersion blender, slowly pour a thin stream of melted butter into the container. When the lowest layer turns white and creamy, bring the blender up to the next layer. The hollandaise is ready when it's thick and fluffy.

Keto: Dairy free #6

Following a healthy dairy-free diet doesn’t have to mean depriving yourself — and this week’s meal plan is proof of that.

On the menu, we have some spice-heavy keto dishes like our Sindhi-style lamb curry. Additionally, there are some quick and easy weeknight favorites such as our tasty tuna zoodle salad and chicken stir-fry.

While following this plan, if you’re not a big fan of certain ingredients, feel free to swap them. If, for example, you don’t enjoy eating lamb, you could always substitute it for chicken or beef.

The same goes for vegetables. If there’s something you don’t fancy, change it for another low-carb veggie. Check out our visual vegetable guide for more inspiration.

Get ready to enjoy some of our favorite keto meals while staying below 20 grams of net carbs per day.
