Would you guys like to know what is my new favorite Keto side dish? Well here’s the answer; Zucchini Gratin!
Tonight I made it for the second time and it was better than the first. I guess that’s what happens with practice 😊 The recipe is easy to follow, takes just a few fresh ingredients, and is super delicious!
The recipe comes from I Breathe I’m Hungry and of course I found it on Pinterest. It’s low carb, Keto, paleo, and gluten free. Since taters aren’t Keto and most people eat Au Gratin Potatoes, this is the next best thing.
I used cheddar and mozzarella cheese, although the recipe called for pepper jack. It was still delicious! This time I made it in a shallower dish and it turned out less soupy than the first time.
We paired it with cheesy brats, green beans, and a small piece of pork steak. Then, for a special low carb treat, I made my very first peanut butter pie! Omg, it was so rich and fabulous, a tiny slice was perfect!
I know it looks like a lot of food, but I don’t eat much during the day, so I look forward to a good dinner. For instance, this morning I had Keto pancakes which are just an egg mixed with an oz. of cream cheese.
Lunch was a snack really, home made almond clusters- I had one. I ate breakfast late and had drank my bulletproof coffee, so I stayed full til dinner. Btw, the pie recipe came from Keto Connect and the clusters from Keto Whoa.
Normally I track my macros and worry about how many carbs I ate. Yet now that I’m taking my supplements from Pruvit, I don’t have to do that. So I’m trying to get back to just sticking to my diet.
Actually, I have been off my supplements until my auto-ship gets here. I cannot wait, I miss the energy, focus, and lack of cravings I enjoyed while I was drinking my ketones.
