Holy yum!! Clean keto is the way to go! Everything in this recipe was perfect. It was really quick and easy to make and it tasted delicious!

Lemon Herb Mediterranean Chicken Salad

I've been loving keto eating but have found myself swaying in the past months to a not so clean version of keto. Now that summer is approaching I am going back to my clean eating roots and keeping my keto clean!! This salad fits right into that and totally hit the spot! The chicken marinade was awesome and also worked well as a dressing. Loaded with avocado and olive oil it has fats, it has protein, it has greens AND fit into my keto lifestyle. Check it out and let me know what you think! Marinade/Dressing: 2   tablespoons   olive oil juice of 1 lemon   (1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice) 2   tablespoons   water 2   tablespoons   red wine vinegar 2   tablespoons   fresh chopped parsley 2   teaspoons   dried basil 2   teaspoons  garlic,  minced 1   teaspoon   dried oregano 1   teaspoon   salt cracked pepper,  to taste 1   pound   (500 g) skinless, boneless chicken thigh fillets (or chicken breasts) Salad: 4   cups   Romaine   (or Cos) lettuce leaves, wash

**LOW CARB** Baked Eggs & Zoodles with Avocado

I honestly didn't think I was going to like this recipe. I didn't think zucchini and eggs were going to taste good together, I was SO wrong! It was totally delicious, simple to make, and dairy free which I have been trying to do more of. I definitely recommend adding this one to your meal plan!

**KETO** Cheeseburger Casserole

Everything is better in a casserole, right? We found this cheeseburger casserole easy to make and very delicious, there were just a few things we would do differently because ours came out a little wet. We didn't need to grease the pan and should have drained the beef before adding the cream cheese. We are going to try it again with those two things changed and see if we can make it an even better recipe. All around it tasted delicious and is a really good low carb dish for the entire family.
