Shrimp skewers breaded with almond flour and spices, fried in coconut oil. Served alongside salad with a rich chipotle mayo sauce.
I’m not big on New Year’s Resolutions (we dedicated a whole podcast on how disruptive resolutions can be to our overall health here), but I do see the value in staying focused on the things that make me feel happy, healthy, and whole.
I personally set aside time once a month (on the 10th of every month – my birthday number) to assess how I’m allocating my time, energy, and money to see if I’m actively contributing to the life I want to live.
While MANY of the things I do daily to contribute to the life I want to live have nothing to do with the keto diet (think: camping, yoga, Netflix binges, pajama parties, art classes, and daily walks), there are a couple of must-do keto nutrition, diet, and keto food prep actions on my “list” that support the balanced body and mind I want to maintain with my keto diet.
Some of the little things that make a BIG difference when it comes to maintaining my eating style are:
So the first three items are pretty self-explanatory, but the last one on quick 20-minute meals is something I know we can all benefit from. This week, I created a quick and easy keto shrimp salad that was out-of-this-world amazing. So much so that I Kevin said, “Babe, this is blog-worthy. You’ve got to make it again and share it with the peeps!” (FYI: you guys are called ‘the peeps’).
So here we are! The salad couldn’t be easier to whip up. The Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour combined with frying the skewers in coconut oil and drizzling the salad with chipotle mayo dressing makes this recipe an official FAT BOMB dinner – a great way to boost your fat for the day without relying on another silicone mold treat.
Let’s dig in!

Whether you choose to reassess and refocus on New Year’s, your birthday, anniversary, a date that holds significance to you, or whatever, it is nice to set aside some time every week, month, or year, for some good ‘ol “where am I at, what am I doing, what do I want” sessions. Let’s chat about what things you focus on, what keeps you motivated, and where you find your inspiration. I love hearing your stories ;)
