Sometimes the really simple recipes are the best. I love how throwing a healthy ingredients that you have on hand together can create a really wholesome, flavourful keto-approved and diabetic-friendly meal.

This keto bowl features a variety of fresh low-carb veggies, satisfying protein and healthy fats that I usually have on hand, and ties it all together with a delicious horseradish mayo.

Feel free to substitute ingredients here — you could use some canned fish (remember, canned fish is good for you!) or shredded chicken instead of the smoked salmon; broccolini or snow peas instead of the asparagus; fermented vegetables such as kimchi or sauerkraut or pickled onion instead of fresh onion. The dressing can be made in advance and will keep in the fridge in a sealed jar for up to 5 days.

If you’re the one meal a day (OMAD) style keto eater who practices intermittent fasting, use both servings for one large meal. This way you'll cover your daily potassium intake and two thirds of your magnesium intake — and you know how important electrolytes are for a healthy keto diet!

I can’t get enough of this meal!
I love it and you can mix it up by exchanging the vegetables or protein - I’ve made it with salmon and marinaded chicken
