Most of our meals include salad and fruit as a side.
As many of you know, Tristyn has been following the Keto diet for a while now. Most of our dinners are Keto friendly or can be adapted to fit a Keto diet.
Smoked Salmon Salad
This is basic and straight forward. It’s all your favorite taco toppings, but instead of placing them in a tortilla/taco shell you pile them up on a bed of lettuce & chips. So easy and so good!
Most of you know that Tristyn follows the Ketogenic diet, so you might be wondering how we can do quesadillas that are Keto friendly. I’ll let you in on our big secret: low carb tortillas! We have tried all different kinds of low carb tortillas, and honestly, our very favorite ones are from Target. These are the tortillas we use, and I cannot say enough good things about them!
When we make breakfast quesadillas I scramble some eggs, fry some bacon, and shred a bunch of cheese. Then I just assemble the quesadillas and sometimes throw in some diced green chilies for extra flavor and bake them at 350°F. I usually just keep and eye on them and flip them when I feel like they are about halfway done.
Smoked Salmon Salad:
Smoke or cook a filet of salmon and place it on a bed of lettuce. I usually add capers, sunflower seeds, and a vinaigrette dressing. It’s simple, fresh, and delicious.
This is one of my all time favorite salads, and I don’t hesitate to pile mine up with all the best ingredients. My cobb salad includes cooked chicken, bacon, tomato, sharp cheddar cheese, avocado, hard-boiled eggs, and a healthy amount of ranch dressing. Tristyn, however, is not a big fan of cobb salad, so he usually cooks himself a steak and has a side salad with ranch whenever I make cobb salad.
I hope you can use some of the ideas from our weekly meal plan for your own family. If you have any questions let me know. And, as always, thank you for reading.
