A breakfast, lunch or dinner favourite. Don’t you just love a recipe that you fancy at any time of the day? This low carb roast salmon, kale and poached egg bowl is the perfect balance of healthy fats, fibre, carbs and protein to keep hunger at bay, insulin levels stable and your belly happy and healthy. It works really well with smoked salmon too if you prefer.

I used keto superfoods like salmon, avocado, kale and eggs. They are great sources of quality protein, healthy fats and electrolytes, making it the ideal dish for those who practice intermittent fasting while following a lchf diet. Whether you prefer skipping a meal or fast for 24 hours, this is the ideal low-carb recipe to break your fast.

Just one serving will provide over 70% of your daily potassium and 30% magnesium. And remember, if you just started following a ketogenic diet, don’t be afraid to use salt. Sufficient sodium will keep keto-flu at bay!

Food is one of life’s most powerful medicines. I’m a true testament that once you find the right approach for you, you can overcome poor health through the healing power of food.

I believe the secret to radiant health starts and ends with a healthy gut so my recipes are all grain, gluten and refined sugar free. Most are also dairy-free.

This was excellent and so simple to make! Great mix of flavors. Chopping the kale in a food processor gave it a wonderful texture. I used sardines because I didn’t have any salmon.
