You and I have very different views of what a “diet” should look like. I would be happy to eat foods that contain no carbs, if that was what I thought was healthy for me. Of course, I don’t want to starve myself or deprive myself of foods I love, so I try to find ways to get what I need from a “diet” that is still healthy.
We all have our favourite foods, so we know they are good for us. But did you know that a low-carb diet can help with weight loss, cholesterol, blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and more? It’s true. This easy keto beef with gravy and cabbage mash recipe is a great dinner that’s low in carbs.
I can’t help but wonder what beef looks like when it’s cooked on the keto diet. I’ve made this recipe for beef stew before, but this time I wanted to make it keto friendly. I thought about just doing it with beef strips and using gravy, but I wanted to try something different. The first time I made this recipe I used cauliflower mash, but I was missing a bit of starch.
