We all know that chicken goes well with basically anything.
But just to kick up a notch your chicken flavor, some aromatics are just better than others.
That’s why, in this keto recipe, I decided to bring the best herbs and aromatics to make this chicken taste incredibly delicious, without too much of a hassle.
This recipe is, in fact, very easy and quick. It requires you to use some spices but nothing crazy nor weird. These are spices you should have in your pantry already…
No carbs in this dish make it great for a ketogenic diet (especially if you are lifting and are on the ketogains macros!).
Pair it with a salad and some crème fraîche for even more delicious taste!
In the area of Naples, they make a delicious dish called ‘scarola stufata’.
It has a ton of olive oil and almost no protein but god if that’s delicious!
Even though the original is harder to make as tasty using less olive oil, I tried my best, with this recipe to recreate a very similar taste.
This recipe will add also a lot of fiber to your diet. In case you don’t know, endive is a vitamin powerhouse too!
In this dish, there are around 300g of endive which will give you around 900% of your daily intake of vitamin K!
Besides that, you get 120% of vitamin A and almost 100% of folate!
This is what I call eating healthy and delicious! It’s possible and this is what I’m trying to do with this project.
Eggplants season in this part of the world!
If you have been following me for a while now, you should know how much I like sardines and what a powerful food they are.
Plenty of omega-3s, minerals, and protein.
Some people though might be intimidated by the weird oily texture and, sometimes, the smell.
After trying this recipe, I promise, you will start loving sardines like you never thought possible before.
The flavors packed into this simple and easy recipe are incredible.
You can see my genuine reaction to tasting this recipe for the first time. I was seriously having a foodgasm there!
Besides tasting heavenly, this recipe is Keto since it has almost no carbs at all but also Paleo, Primal, LCHF, and, of, course IIFYM.
Also, it requires no cooking (besides the eggplants which you could make in bulk and store in the freezer). It takes literally 5 min to assemble and it’s very cheap too.
I use canned sardines that come at 88g for just 0.53 euro!
I have this for lunch. This recipe is recommended if you are cutting because it has few calories, lots of proteins, and it’s very very satiating.
I haven’t found a proof in the scientific literature but I experience complete appetite suppression for many hours after eating this and I suspect it’s the raw garlic.
I can’t wait for you to try this quick recipe out and have many foodgasms like I had 🙂
Chicken is the bodybuilders most favorite.
Alright, alright, it’s chicken breast and this recipe is with chicken thighs.
Well, I LOVE chicken thighs and can’t help myself coming up with recipes to make them taste even more delicious!
Furthermore, as many of you, I like simple recipes: few ingredients, quick from pan to plate, little cleaning afterward.
Guess what, this one-pot recipe is all of that!
And it’s a keto recipe too!
*ROAR OF APPLAUSE* (thank you, thank you)
It uses mainly herbs that you should have in your kitchen available (if not, what are you even eating hahah) and other staple ingredients.
It uses wine, but as I always say, you don’t need the expensive stuff. Buy the cheap one and it keeps in the fridge forever (it’s for cooking!).
This super easy to make recipe provides almost 50g of protein per serving, 1g of carbs and 630kcal. What an amazing way to cut weight, if you ask me!
This goes great with a salad made of fresh lettuce, fennel, arugula, celery, and a couple of cherry tomatoes. With, it goes without saying, some tasty extra virgin olive oil drizzled on top.
You don’t need to be a bodybuilder to appreciate this keto recipe. Given the high-protein content, though, this recipe is indicated for whoever does resistance training which means lifting weights. Also if you do calisthenics or gymnastic and you are on a ketogenic diet, this recipe is good for you too!
Besides being keto friendly, this recipe is also suited for the following diets: Paleo, Primal, LCHF.
You can replace the wine with beer, vinegar, chicken broth.
Without further ado, here’s the recipe!
If you are short on time and don’t have enough time to cook this keto lunch recipe can be a lifesaver.
This dish is called Caprese. and I’ve been eating it when I was in Italy very often and it was one of my most favorite meals!
Especially if you use buffalo mozzarella and very fresh cherry tomatoes, this can turn easily into a foodgasmic experience 🙂
You don’t need fancy recipes to eat well. This is what south Italian cuisine is all about: few ingredients, simple to make, tastebuds ecstasy guaranteed.
This dish is very low carb, therefore, it can be eaten on a ketogenic diet.
It’s also dirty cheap and very quick to prepare since no cooking is involved!
I love mackerel. But its smell doesn’t love my house so I rarely cooked it.
Until I stumbled upon this method to avoid it smelling the entire house when cooking it in a pan.
Simply put a bowl with white vinegar just next to the stove.
When I read it I thought of another mambo jumbo technique you can find plenty of on the internet. But, hey, white vinegar is super cheap so why not trying!
Because I was afraid that the smelly smoke would contaminate my softboxes diffusers, I didn’t film it, unfortunately. But I could take nice pics to put on the website as you can see.
Mackerel contains high amounts of omega3s which have an anabolic effect. This means that they can stimulate directly muscle protein synthesis which becomes synergistic with your workout.
Fatty fish cooked in a hot pan with olive oil is amazing because, when you sear it, the Maillard reaction takes place and the fish surface becomes super crunchy. Having the oil infused with garlic before searing the fish will infuse all that goodness into the fish.
Let me tell you what a match made in heaven is mackerel with olive oil, garlic, and lemon!
The parley then will completely remove the fishy taste creating a great balance with the lemon and all the other tastes.
I’m really proud of this simple yet succulent dish!
