Keto friendly recipes: Caprese Salad

Over the last couple of years I've gained what could affectionately be called "happy relationship weight" along with the Google 15 (who brought some friends) and in an attempt to curb this I've been trying the low carb/Keto approach to weight loss.

It's early days yet but to be honest, it's working. I'm not hungry and I've lost more weight in a week than I did in a month of low calorie low fat dieting. As a foodie though there's no way that I can eat steak for dinner every night or replace bread with grated cauliflower and lettuce. So I thought I'd post some of the keto/Atkins friendly food I've been eating starting with a simple one.

Caprese Salad

1 handful of basil leaves
1/2 cup fresh mozzarella bocconcini
1/2 cup grape or baby tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste
extra virgin olive oil


  • Wash and tear up the basil leaves
  • Cut the tomatos and the bocconcini
  • Combine in a bowl and toss thoroughly
  • Season to taste and drizzle with olive oil
  • Less than 5g of carbohydrates


  1. Looks really amazing. I was really sick of eating the same old salad everyday, but this looks like a really simple and yummy salad. I'm going to be making this very soon, thanks for the great recipe.

  2. Supplemental creatine keeps the creatine levels of your body slightly elevated, which forces your muscle tissue to hold an addition amount of water. click site
