It's a common misconception that keto is just about bacon, eggs and cheese. In reality, there is a variety of foods you should eat to get all the nutrients you need. For this salad I used a few simple ingredients. The dressing is full of smokey flavour - not too spicy and with a nice hint of lime.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
