Even my kids love these cauliflower bites!  I think that is the combination of ranch flavour and crispy coating.  Or maybe its the cheesy dipping sauce??  Whichever it is, I’m just happy that they’re eating more vegetables.

Tips for keto cooking:

  • Find low carb substitutions for your current favorite recipes.  Like cauliflower instead of perogies and radishes instead of potatoes.
  • Maintain a healthy balance of protein and fats.  Sometimes its hard to get enough fat and/or protein in a ketogenic diet so be sure to include a balance of both in your dishes.
  • Plan ahead and use tools like this Meal Planning Printable to reach maximum success.
  • Find recipes that you love, like this Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole, Taco Bake and Hamburger Soup, and use them in your weekly rotation.
  • Be sure to stock the kitchen with helpful tools (aff links) like this food scale, these measuring cups and a Kitchen Aid mixer.
