Paneer, single-handedly has to be one of the best vegetarian fat source in a ketogenic meal. Itโ€™s the kind of ingredient that can help you hit your fat, protein macros for a meal while keeping things low carb. Also, itโ€™s the softest, tastiest cheese ever! If you havenโ€™t tasted paneer […]

Roasted Vegetable Salad with Herb Vinaigrette

While fresh, crisp salads are undoubtedly tasty, there is something about roasted vegetables in a salad that gets me all the time.

Crunchy salad with Spicy Herbed Breadcrumbs

This flavourful salad is a combination of fresh and juicy vegetables topped with spicy herbed breadcrumbs. It is an improvised version of the panzanella salad; stale bread or any bread along with tomatoes and other vegetables go into the making of the panzanella salad. Instead of using rustic bread varieties, […]
