Crispy Baked Sriracha Lime Wings

I love wings. Who doesn't, right? I could never be on a diet where wings weren't a part of my life. Very sorry, vegetarianism. Please excuse me, pescatarians. Chicken wings are just too important in my life. And these wings, Glow Getters, are worthy of being on that pedestal.

Like most people, I am obsessed with sriracha. It's just so good! I've gotten over my phase where I put it on EVERYTHING, but it's definitely still my hot sauce of choice. Sriracha pairs perfectly with lime, and these wings soak up that flavor like a sponge.

Grilled Lemon Dijon Chicken

This, hands down, is one of my favorite at-home chicken preparations. It hits all of my favorite recipe criteria:

  1. Easy
  2. Cheap
  3. Super flavorful
  4. Easily accessible ingredients

What more do you need? If you've never thought to try this flavor combo before, I encourage you to try it. As easy and accessible as it already is, it can be made even more so by swapping out Meyer lemons for regular lemons, and also by using a grill pan and cooking the chicken on the stove/in the oven. It can also be customized for you, depending on whether you like white or dark meat. Sold yet? Good...let's get to grilling!

Keto Chicken Cobb Salad in a Jar

If there's one thing I love, it's salad in a jar. I don't know if I like it so much because it's super convenient or because it's visually impressive, but I make at least three a week. For those of you who haven't heard of salad in a jar, prepare to have your mind blown.

You'll see lots of salads in a jar on this blog, because, well...I make lots of salads in a jar. Today, though, I'm going to share with you my absolute fave: Chicken Cobb. It's the perfect keto salad, delivering lots of healthy fats, while being hearty enough for a full meal that leaves you full til dinner. No wimpy salads over here. Grab your ingredients and let's get to layering.

Instant Pot Bone Broth

So what's the deal with bone broth? Well, I don't call it liquid gold for no reason. Besides the fact that it's the base for soups and is used to cook more flavorful sauces and veggies, it also contains a ton of goodies, including collagen (great for skin, nails, hair, and bones) and protein. In addition, it boosts your immune system, so it's great to sip on in the rare event you're sick (because we don't get sick often!). So, if you have an Instant Pot, whip it out and let's get to cooking.

Matcha Chia Pudding

As you may know if you follow me on Instagram, I LOVE chia puddings. I mean what's not to love? Depending on your goals/moods you can really change them up to make them whatever you want to be. Sometimes I make them thinner and eat it from a bowl to be reminiscent of a porridge, sometimes I make them thick like a hearty pudding should be, the kind that holds its own in layers. And the flavor combos -- don't even get me started.

Another thing I love about chia puddings is that they pack a great fat/nutrient punch. Chia provides loads of fiber, omega-3s, and calcium, among other nutrients, and also 4.5 g of fat per tablespoon. In addition, I make my chia puddings with coconut milk, so I get all the wonderful fatty goodness and flavor from that as well. Depending on what you put in it, it's a great way to get some good fats in . So, without further ado, here's today's chia pudding variation: Matcha!

Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice

Cauliflower rice (or cauli rice, as I often call it, because those two extra syllables can be a burden) is super versatile and the perfect accompaniment to almost any dish. It's weird -- I rarely ate rice before eating keto, but now I eat cauli rice about four times a week. Because of cauliflower's neutral flavor, you can adjust it to whatever you're eating. That means coconut ginger for Thai food, seasoned with coconut aminos for fried rice, and of course, cilantro lime for Mexican dishes. Try this rice as a standalone side dish or as the bottom layer in your homemade chipotle burrito bowl, and thank me later.

Crispy Keto Eggplant Fries & Smoky Dipping Sauce

If the only way you've ever tried eggplant is parmesan, give these eggplant fries a chance. While the texture of eggplant parm is kind of meaty and hearty, the eggplant in these fries takes on a totally different note and gets crispy on the outside (thanks to an almond meal coating) and almost creamy on the inside. It's truly delicious! As a bonus, try them with the accompanying simple smoky dipping sauce.
