Ranch Dressing

Ranch Dressing

Here recently I have been doing a ketogenic diet.  This is an extremely high fat low carb diet that has to be done with clean real food and healthy fats.  This ranch works perfect for that. I actually call it my keto ranch.

Ranch Dressing

Whisk together all ingredients. Store in refrigerator.

I use 2 Tablespoons at a time usually, but I eat fairly large salads.  Pictured above is 3 cups spinach, 2 oz nitrate, nitrite free ham, 1/2 oz shredded carrot, 1 oz raw cheddar, and the ranch.  Pictured below is 3 cups spinach, 2 oz shredded chicken, 3 slices of nitrite, nitrate free bacon, 1/2 oz shredded organic carrot, 1 oz raw cheddar, 1/5 tomato, and the ranch.  Other salad favorites to add are boiled eggs, avocado, black olives, mixed greens.

Parmesan Garlic Crusted Chicken Strips

  Parmesan Garlic Crusted Chicken Strips – gluten free

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, mayonnaise, lemon juice, water, and minced garlic then sit it aside.

Put your oats in a blender and blend until it is a powder. In another bowl, combine oat powder, both Parmesan cheeses, pepper, salt, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder.

Bang chicken breasts/strips down to about 1/4-1/2 inch thick.  Pat dry.

Take each breast/strip and coat both sides in the dry mixture, then dunk in egg mixture, then back into dry mixture on both sides again.

Place onto a thoroughly greased (I used coconut oil for this) cookie sheet or tin pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 40 min or until golden brown and thoroughly cooked through.  I like to serve with marinara sauce.
