You guys!!!! I have so much to share with you today. Including some delicious recipes to help you have a morning that you start off with “Hey Guys!!!”
I am down 17.6 pounds. That point six may not seem like a lot, but I am getting closer and closer to being down 20 pounds!
How am I doing it? I’m going low-carb!
As promised, I planned to share a few recipes with you, some that are super easy and count as low-carb. I have not included exercise as of yet. I’ve been nursing a torn MCL and wanted to give myself a chance to take some pounds off of my knee and to get this new medication I am using to start working.
Let’s get to the food portion, shall we?
Keto Taco Casserole
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 yellow onion, diced
- 2 lbs ground beef (I go for lean)
- 2 tbsp kosher salt
- Ground black pepper for taste
- 2 tbsp taco seasoning
- jalapenos, chopped (I use a jar of nacho jalapenos.)
- 6 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 2 tbsp chopped cilantro leaves
- 1 c sour cream (for serving)
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a large skillet, heat the oil on a medium heat. Add onion and cook for 2 minutes. Add ground beef and brown with the onions.
Sprinkle taco seasoning & jalapenos (as many as you are comfortable with.) Cook another minute.
In a large bowl, whisk eggs, then add the meat. Spread the mix in an even layer in a casserole dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Cook 25 min.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with cilantro & top with sour cream.
Buffalo Chicken Casserole
- 1 block (8 oz) cream cheese
- 2 c. cooked, cubed chicken (I buy the bag of Tyson pre-cooked, cubed chicken.)
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1/2 cup Buffalo Wing Sauce
- 3 tbsp heavy cream
- 4 oz. shredded cheddar
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Add cream cheese, buffalo sauce and garlic to a skillet. Heat at medium, and whisk. When the cream cheese has melted, add in the chicken. Mix well and remove from heat.
Spray a casserole dish with coconut oil and spoon in the mixture and smooth it out.
Pour heavy cream over the top and sprinkle with cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes!
These are two super easy recipes to make that most kids will enjoy. Big on flavor, low on carb and easy to make!
