Autumn’s New Favorite Salad

And she asks for it almost every day!

 Click here for the  recipe for the Asian salad I posted the other day.  This is so good!


A few comments on the recipe:

Follow the word directions – the gram amounts she listed did not make sense when I tried to measure it.

For the dressing: I did not use that much garlic – way too much for us! When I have been in a hurry, I just use garlic and ginger powder.

I subbed stevia for the Swerve.

I subbed Coconut Aminos for the soy sauce.


I had never bought a Napa cabbage before – it is much sweeter than regular cabbage.  I took off the larger outer leaves and then cut it finely:


You can either put your veggies in the food processor or cut them by hand.  I was in a hurry and just cut up what I had on hand.  Remember we are now in a “low carb” mode, and not strict keto, so peas and carrots can be used. 


These are the items I used for the dressing – again when I am in hurry I just use garlic and ginger powder:


I missed putting the stevia in the last picture:

Taco “Salad”…3 Days Straight..and Counting!

“Autumn, let’s try these,” ….I have been saying for the last 21 months about the Taco recipe on page 83 in Dawn Martenz’ The Keto Cookbook. For some reason Autumn never wanted to, but finally she did…just turning into a “Taco Salad” (see “Recipes” page) instead of tacos…and she has had it everyday for the last 3 days!



It is so basic – lettuce, hamburger, cheese, sour cream and a tad of low carb ketchup.   I felt like, “Dah – why have we never done this before!”  Although, I still think making taco shells out of cheese like Dawn does is a cool idea 🙂

Even after eating this for 3 days straight,  Autumn is saying to me as I am taking this picture, “Mom, please hurry up so I can eat!!!!


Keto Joy!
