What comes to mind when you think of salads? Usually what comes to my mind is dieting. The great thing about keto is that you can pack those salads full of healthy fats. This Cobb Salad is not only full of healthy fats and protein, but also it is delicious! I have never really been a fan of salads but when a salad is packed full of bacon, chicken, boiled eggs and ranch, I can not complain.
Cobb Salad and healthy fats.
After living a ketogenic diet lifestyle I have found that some have a hard time consuming fat, or getting it into their diet. I struggled with this in the beginning and I can understand how it can be hard. I have done many diets and fat was always something I stayed away from. I wish I knew then, what I know now about fat. I am not a doctor and I would recommend doing your research. It took me awhile to get over it and learn all the things I could about the truth of fat. It is one of the main ingredients I focus on.
Adding fat to a salad makes it so much easier to get in your daily macros. Some of the fats in this salad is avocado, bacon, eggs, ranch, and you can add olive oil. Cobb salad is a fully loaded meal. There are so many ingredients you can add to it. You may notice one of the main ingredients of a Cobb salad is not in this recipe. That ingredient is blue cheese. I have never been a fan of blue cheese and that is okay. If you love blue cheese you can certainly add the ingredient in.
If you miss the crunchy croutons in salads then you are going to love Carrington Farms Crounons. The company was generous enough to send me some and I love them. If you are wanting that crunch in your salads I would recommend getting some. If you are interested in this product you can buy it here. This post was not paid for but the products were sent to me for free.
Eggs, bacon, chicken, avocado, ranch, all the things!
Salads can be appetizers or meals. This recipe can certainly be either or when it comes to preparing your meals. There may be a lot of ingredients but they are easy to prepare. Everything in this recipe just comes together in the end and you will not be disappointed.
