One of the reasons that I decided to pursue the keto plan is that with my hypothyroidism, I had tried every diet out there. I had done the extreme measuring, counted points, had eaten foods that came in a box, I had watched every calorie that made its way into my mouth. I was done with all of that. I wanted to eat real, healthy foods that still tasted the way they should, made with products that were more actual food and less chemical substitutes. Keto spoke to me because I could have my cake and eat it, too. Well, maybe not cake, but I could have some great fat bombs that made me not really miss cake!
With keto, I have the freedom to experiment and find great tasting substitutes for most of the foods I love. It’s given me the confidence to find great recipes for foods that I enjoy, while still adhering to keto standards.
Summer is here, and for my family, that means lots of social get-togethers where food is involved. I’m not going to lie; I love a good burger patty covered in cheese with some avocado slices. However, a woman cannot live on burgers alone! Some great side dishes can help round out your meal and help you stay in ketosis. One of the first recipes that I experimented with was potato salad.
My Keto Quickie ‘Potato’ Salad is perfect because it’s simple. There are not a lot of steps, and it’s tasty… it’s easy to make to take to a get-together, but it’s also a great way to add a little variety to any meal. I’ve been known to make it as a last minute snack when I was having a serious carb craving. Pro-tip: it’s better on day 2!
When I do make this recipe to share, it is always well-received. Not a single party guest has ever seemed to be upset or put out that I made a keto-friendly version of potato salad. Most are surprised to find that they love the flavor and texture. The green onions offer the perfect amount of zip to this recipe. It’s not bland!
