Simple Engagement Chicken

Prep Time: 1 hour and 15 min
Serves: 6-8 plus

My grandma always told me if you can’t cook a whole chicken then you will never find a husband. Lucky for me I can, and now I am engaged!  But for reals, if you eat meat you should be able to make a roast chicken. It is a classic staple, one that you will make over and over again. I also love that it’s not just 1 meal but you can make a ton of variations of recipes depending on the season (right now lots of soups and warming foods). 

BROTH: After eating the meat (or I usually take it off the bones to store it) I will put the bones, a little bit of apple cider vinegar and some herbs into a stock pot and fill with water, let simmer for 4-5 hours then strain. Store in glass in the fridge and sip throughout the day or you can freeze to use later.

Plus I made this recipe so you don't need any fancy tools like a thermometer. If you have your cast iron and oven and boom good to go.

Mediterranean Tzatziki Dip (dairy-free)

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 6-8 as a dip or 10 for when paired with meat or seafood

This dip is one I have been obsessed with all summer. It is refreshing with the thinly shredded cucumbers and lemon juice. I love it with Mary’s crackers or pairing it with lamb in a Gyro bowl or on top of some wild salmon. If you are not sensitive to dairy, or you are not aware of being sensitive to dairy, it doesn’t hurt to cut it our for a bit (let’s say 10 days) to see how you feel when you enter it back in. I personally stick to sheep or goat products for cheeses, but either way whatever you choose make sure it is organic, full-fat and preferably raw/unpasteurized.

Strawberry Moringa Mint Smoothie

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2

This low sugar, keto (high-fat) smoothie is my go to in summer. When I see strawberries at the market I will freeze half for my on the go lunch or snack (depending on my workout). Because of the healthy fats from the coconut, MCT oil and chia seeds, this smoothie keeps you full and satisfied. Cauliflower is my secret to a creamy consistency without the high sugar and carb from the traditional banana used in most smoothie recipes. Try adding a scoop of collagen or protein to up the protein as well.

Taqueria Style Pickled Jalapenos and Carrots

This recipe is one from my upcoming Mexican Keto Cookbook. A tease to see what’s coming and one of my favorites!

Every taco shop has the classic spicy, crunchy carrots and jalapenos in their salsa bar. I am guilty of being the person to fill the salsa container to the brim, and snack on them until the tacos are ready. This at-home version is something I love to have on hand for friends that come over and want a snack. You can eat them all by themselves, add them on top of a taco, or serve as a condiment to your summer grilling.

Spaghetti Squash with Meat & Mushroom Bolognese

Prep Time: 25
Cook Time: 1 hour
Serves: 6 people 

One of my favorite winter meals, but to be honest I make it year round because it is so comforting and very satisfying. The meat sauce is a staple that I learned from my Pop and once you make it I promise your family will be begging for more!

Spaghetti squash is packed with fiber and vitamins like carotene and vitamin A, plus you do not need any special tools to make it into "spaghetti" you just use your fork.

Green Tomatillo Salsa with Cilantro and Lime

Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cook Time: 20
Serves: 3.5 cups

Tomatillo means “little tomato” in Spanish and that’s essentially what it is. Small, firm and green with a lantern-type paper covering, most people miss them in the produce aisle. When roasted, the firm acidic meat of the tomatillo transforms into a sticky-sweet tomato caramel you'll want to serve with everything. That being said, the naturally occurring sugars in the salsa are better absorbed in our bodies by adding a healthy fat such as MCT or avocado oil.
