Low-Carb Big Mac Cheeseburger Salad

LOW-CARB Big Mac Cheeseburger Salad

For the last month, I’ve been researching and learning about a nutrition plan called the Kenogenic Diet.  Basically, take everything you’ve ever learned about nutrition and flip it on it’s head and you have the Kenogenic diet. For the first time in years, I am enjoying more healthy fats in my nutrition such as grass fed butter, avocados, cheese, bacon and more. And I’m loosing weight! Amazing how you can feel so much better just by changing your nutrition. I was willing to make a few minor adjustments to not only get the scale moving again, but also to boost my confidence! In addition, I’ve been focused on eliminating foods that cause inflammation in my diet. It’s really been amazing! And I feel great! I’m finding the SOURCE of the food is just as important as the food item itself. (more on that to come later)

Below is one of the recipes I have taste tested and love!  It’s one of my favorites so I wanted to share it with you too! This recipe feels like you’re enjoying a “fast food” meal without the FAST FOOD calories and junk! Be prepared to feel like you are enjoying a “cheat” meal!
