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 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.
