Many of my Fit by 50 meals are low carb, so I’m always on the lookout.

The key to sticking with any eating plan, is a variety of tasty food.

Salmon & asparagus Ingredients for 3 servings:

  • 18oz wild caught salmon
  • 1 bundle asparagus
  • spray olive oil
  • Seasonings:
    • 2 teaspoons olive oil
    • 2 teaspoons herb seasoning (no/low sodium)
    • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
    • sea salt & pepper to taste

Risotto Ingredients for at least 5 servings:

  • 1 medium head of cauliflower (about 3.5 cups of raw cauliflower “rice”)
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped portobello mushrooms (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves chopped garlic
  • 8oz coconut cream (vegan, unsweetened)
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
    • Note: Remember, for the ketogenic diet you want to reduce the amount of carbohydrates from non-veggie sources as much as possible. Opting for reduced-fat products may run counter to this goal since they tend to be higher incarbohydrates since the original fat in the product has been stripped away and replaced with sugar for taste.)
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • Seasonings:
    • 1 tablespoon fresh (or dried) rosemary
    • 2 teaspoons fresh (or dried) thyme
    • sea salt & pepper to taste
    • red pepper to taste

Enjoy!

Until next time… Namaste my friends

About Tamara Hoerner (1256 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

I'd love to know what you think!
