The Letter ‘S’: Succulent Steakburgers, Salad, and Simple Staples.

Spring is for succulent, satiatiating, simple recipes.

Spring has sprung here is Albuquerque, NM!  So, I made a simple salad, and steakburger lunch. Sipping on a keto Limeade was an especially sweet way to start the day.  I wanted to reitterate the importance of simplistic recipes and staples in your diet.  I strive to highlight specific ingredients, in order taste everything on the plate, individually and in concert with eachother.  Simple foods are key to sustaining the keto lifestyle.  It’s nice to make fancy recipes all the time, but seriously, who has the time? Replacing starch-rich foods can be a fun hobby, but tend to lead to super calorie dense keto “cheat style” meals. Besides,  a burger and salad is about as easy as it gets to cook, and takes a grand total of like 20 minutes.  In your own style, find foods that squash your hunger fast.  The best way that I’ve found to beat cravings for crappy foods is to stay full!  So, if you are respecting a feeding window,  make sure you eat calorie dense,  fiberful and nurtitious foods, BUT ABOVE ALL, KEEP IT SIMPLE!


Create simple meals you can repeat easily, with variables to make them unique, escaping dietary boredom.

Strawberry Limeade…On Keto??? Yes!

This is 2 limes, 6 frozen strawberries, ACV,  and ginger paste.  I also added 1/2 cup of water and a tsp of stevia powder in order to make my Strawberry Limeade.  I put all that into my ninja and made a simple slushy, for spring!

Show me a fruitade on a shelf with 2.5g fiber per serving!

Why yes, this IS a frothy, delicious Strawberry Limeade!

Sufferin’ Succotash! Limes have more liminoids than lemons, go figure…

“Preliminary research has shown that limonoids, like vitamin C, are powerful antioxidants and may help to prevent certain cancers and cardiovascular disease… liminoids counteract the effects of free radicals, which are blamed for a wide variety of illnesses as well as aging-related cell deterioration. Free radicals are atoms or molecules with unpaired electrons. They are by-products of your body’s energy metabolism process and thus impossible to avoid. However, a diet rich in nutrients with antioxidant properties can keep free radicals in check and avert the damage they can cause. Researchers at the Citrus Research Center of Texas A&M; University conducted laboratory tests to identify citrus phytonutrients with powerful antioxidant properties. In the March 2005 issue of “Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry,” they reported that two citrus limonoids — limonin and limonin glucoside — exhibited significant antioxidant properties.”

In order to highlight how delicious, and beautiful simplicity can be, I present Luciano Pavarotti singing “Un aura amorosa” from Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte.

Cheers, Happy eating!
