Keto: Spring is in the air #1

Longer days with more light; the warmth of the sun coaxing everything into bloom. Yes, spring is in the air.  And while we all love cheesy casseroles and hearty stews, in spring our fancy turns to lighter, fresher meals with vibrant young veggies, cold plates, fresh herbs and tart bright flavors like the refreshing burst of lemon.

With this spring-inspired meal plan starts off the week with a breakfast of vegetarian keto scramble and grilled pork skewers with ribbon zoodles for dinner. (Eat leftovers for lunch, or skip it.) Other fare during the week includes a keto salad Niçoise, a seared salmon with asparagus and a lemon-flavored chicken soup.

This meal plan will keep you below 20 g net carbs per day.

    Would ghee be a good substitute for the lard in this recipe?

    Generally speaking, ghee or bacon fat will work as a sub for lard.

    What is a sheet pan please? From the UK never heard of that. Baking tray possibly?

    Yes, a baking tray will work just fine.

    What else can be used in place of lard? Can i use butter? I would think that coconut oil or bacon fat would change the taste? If I have to use lard where would I find that? Is it just on a shelf and says LARD on it? or would that be like Crisco or something like that?

    Bacon grease would be a good substitute for lard. Lard is rendered animal fat; Crisco is vegetable oil based and not a good option.

    One must be careful with lard. Much of the commercial contains other fats such as transfers as well as other adulterates. Read the list of ingredients carefully. Best to buy it from the meat counter or render your own.
