Easy Grilled Chicken Thighs – juicy marinated boneless skinless chicken thighs, grilled to perfection and served with a salad, slaw or vegetables. Perfect to add to grain or grain-free bowls and salads.
Grilling chicken thighs is one of my favorite ways to cook them. Unlike grilled chicken breast, these Grilled Chicken Thighs are less likely to end up dry and overcooked on the grill, even if you cook them slightly longer.
Chicken thighs, also known as dark chicken meat are perfect for grilling, they take on marinade well, have a rich flavor and are a lot more juicier, but also more though (since this is muscle meat) than chicken breast.
Pineapple Strawberry Cantaloupe Popsicles – fruity, colorful and delicious, these popsicles are a the perfect treat for a hot summer day. Light, nutritious and plant based -great for both kids and adults.
Looking for a cold and refreshing fruity snack? You’ve come to the right place. These Pineapple Strawberry Cantaloupe Popsicles have three different layers of fruit and no extra sweetener.
I was almost going to call them “ombre” popsicles, but I’m not sure how many people associate ombre with food. It is a hair trend, isn’t it? Or shall I call them layered popsicles?
You won’t believe how easy to make these Pineapple Strawberry Cantaloupe Popsicles are. All you need to do is blend the fruit, soak some wooden popsicle sticks in cold water for 15 minutes and layer the fruit inside popsicle molds. I use these popsicle molds I got on Amazon (affiliate), but any popsicle molds should work.
Oven Baked Okra quick and easy way to cook okra in the over. Crunchy, spicy and delicious, perfect for a side dish, snack or an appetizer. Low-calorie and low-carb, this okra baked in the oven makes the perfect Keto side dish.
This recipe has been in my drafts for years. I can usually purchase okra from the grocery store year round here in Chicago, but I usually make it in the summer, not sure why. Okra is a popular item in Bulgarian cuisine, used in soups and stews and sometimes roasted.
I know okra is one of those things that you either love or hate, just like Brussel sprouts. There are some tips to consider when purchasing, prepping and cooking okra.
Low carb, Keto friendly parmesan Baked Zucchini Chips – easy to make, tasty and low calorie, healthier alternative to regular potato chips.
I’m a huge fan of zucchini, but lately I haven’t been cooking with it as I used to. Trying to rescue these zucchini that have been sitting in my fridge for days, I decided to make this Easy Baked Zucchini Chips with Parmesan.
Since zucchini is 95 % water and relatively low in carbs (1 medium zucchini has 6 grams of carbs and 2 grams of dietary fiber) it is a great vegetable for the low-carb, Keto diet. It cooks fast and can be used in desserts, salads, pastas, soups and main dishes. And last but not least healthy snacks like this low carb zucchini chips.
Cucumber And Onion Salad With Apple Cider Vinegar And Olives – crunchy, flavorful and easy to make, this salad is perfect for summer. Inspired by Mediterranean cuisine, this salad is popular in my home country – Bulgaria.
Low calorie, this Cucumber And Onion Salad With Apple Cider Vinegar And Olives is great as a party (barbecue) salad, or a side dish.
Have a lot of cucumbers from your garden? Make sure you try thus Cucumber And Onion Salad With Apple Cider Vinegar And Olives. If you don’t have any veggies in your garden, just like me – get a cucumber from the store and make this easy, light, flavorful and colorful summer salad.
I know creamy cucumber salads, where the dressing is made with yogurt are popular and everyone loves them. They are good! But I personally am a fan of non-creamy cucumber salads, where the dressing os made with olive oil and apple cider vinegar.
Bacon Wrapped Chicken Skewers – fun and easy to make, juicy pieces of chicken breast wrapped in crispy bacon, grilled to perfection. Fun and easy to make, summer bbq favorite. Low carb and Keto friendly, jazz up the traditional chicken kebabs with the addition of bacon and take them to a whole new level. Both grill and oven cooking options available.
Grilling season is half way through and I try to fire up the grill at least 3 times per week, some weeks every day. Love smokey, charred meats and veggies and even make desserts on my gas grill.
Sometimes the most delicious recipes are the most simple ones, just like these Bacon Wrapped Chicken Skewers. Pieces of chicken meat, wrapped in bacon, threaded on a stick. So cool, delicious and easy to make. My Keto friends – here you’ve got some protein and good fats.
Easy Keto Chocolate Mug Cake – flourless, gluten and sugar free low-carb mug cake, made with simple ingredients and baked in the microwave or oven.
If you wonder what sweets you can have on Keto, you’ve come to the right place. Besides this mug cake recipe, at the end pf the post you’ll find a list with more Keto friendly desserts. This mug cake has been highly requested by readers, ever since I shared my Keto Chocolate Cake Recipe last year, and it took me a while to make it.
This is the best Keto mug cake with chocolate I’ve ever made and it tastes just like brownie.
The Best Avocado Egg Salad – easy and quick to make, low-carb and Keto. Use on your healthy toast, sandwiches or with lettuce.
This is seriously the best avocado egg salad and has been my favorite for a while.
Super easy to make and you have the option to top with your favorite toppings like Everything But Bagel seasoning, Bacon bits or green onions.
The creaminess in this egg salad recipe comes from the egg yolks, mayo and avocado, which are all good fats.
Can you skip the mayonnaise? Of course if you are not a fan of it, you can leave it out and use some more avocado to balance the creaminess. Greek yogurt is a great substitute for an egg salad like this one.
But since Mayonnaise is Keto and I love it in egg salad, I usually use it in the recipe.
This avocado egg salad sandwich has been very popular on my blog and I shared the recipe years back. Now I serve my egg avocado salad on a low-carb, Keto bread bun.
