What can we say? Bacon is magic!

Coach Loli and Mr. Coach keep cooked bacon in the fridge for quick, easy, and magical meals. For this one just heat up the bacon in a little (okay a lot) of bacon grease and toss in the cabbage but don’t cook it, just heat it up to avoid developing sugars. You could also do this with spinach or kale if you were so inclined.

The juxtaposition of the ho-hummery of cabbage and super-yumminess of bacon make this a treat full of healthy, natural fat, a modest amount of protein, and prebiotic fiber.

And, by the way, this means you should SAVE YOUR BACON FAT!

Shrimp All’olio Coach Loli Style

Shrimp is a favorite of Coach Loli and Mr. Coach They are also fans of pasta all’olio.

Since they are keto eaters the pasta had to be swapped for those weird and wonderful Konjac noodles. Coach Loli doesn’t eat dairy so she swapped out butter for ghee. The noodle swap kept the dish VERY low carb and keto friendly while the ghee added a simple and delicious flavor and, of course, healthy fat. It also kept it dairy free. If you’re a dairy eater, butter will do just dandy. The lemon juice and red pepper flakes the Coach added deepened the flavors of the garlic and shrimp.

What traditional dishes have you re-invented?

Tepanade on The Go

Tepanade on The Go

Sometimes you just need a snack that can go with you. Coach Loli is a big fan of tepanade. You can dip all kinds of low carb goodies in it.

Have you tried dipping pork rinds in tepanade? It's delicious!

Those olives are low carb and full of healthy fat, the garlic is a great prebiotic, capers are just yummy, and the extra EVOO just adds more to keep you satiated.

This is a perfect small meal or on the go snack.
