Easy Keto Spinach Salad Recipe

It’s week 3 of the new year and my hubby dearest is still sticking to his Keto diet. It certainly has made makes things more interesting when planning meals as I am not on the diet myself. Luckily the Keto diet includes lots of vegetables which I eat lot’s of already so it works out as I can always add carbs on the side. I made this delicious easy Keto Spinach Salad recipe for lunch the other day and it was delicious.

So let me start by explaining what a ketogenic diet aka ‘Keto’ diet is; keep in mind I am not a health professional and to always consult your doctor. Keto is basically a very low carb and high fat diet which shifts the body’s metabolism away from carbs to fat. The reduction of carbs then places the body into a ketosis metabolic state that makes the body efficient at burning fat for energy. A lot of people have reduced their weight significantly following this diet. I personally do not follow it as I am not trying to lose weight and love me some carbs (in moderation of course)

Now back to the recipe. This spinach salad is super simple and my Keto husband loved it so much. All you need is lots of spinach and a few toppings like blueberries, walnuts, avocado, hemp seeds and red onions. The fat comes from the nuts, hemp seeds and avocado however you can certainly add chicken, fish or steak if you are very hungry. 

The dressing is also very simple and I made it by just whisking olive oil, lemon zest and lemon juice, minced garlic and freshly ground black pepper. So simple yet so delicious.
