Hemp Hearts for Keto

Hemp hearts are my new favorite Keto staple. With a texture like couscous and a nutrition profile perfect for ketogenic eating, hemp hearts can be added to many dishes for bulk, texture, and a subtle nutty flavor. 3 tablespoons contain 10 grams of protein, 180 calories, 1 carb and 1 gram of fiber which equals ZERO NET CARBS. And they can be eaten raw over yogurt or cottage cheese, as well as sautéed in butter or added to dishes. Check out what I’ve made over the last couple weeks!

Hemp Hearts for Keto Meal Ideas

1. Hemp Hearts in Stirfry: can be added to a typical cauliflower rice stir fry for that grainy texture that some people on Keto miss. I use liquid aminos in place of soy sauce with garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper to sauté in avocado oil with diced chicken and eggs.

2. Cheddar Cheesy Hemp Hearts Soup: use any soup base you want. I use chicken stock, cream cheese, cheddar cheese to my sautéed onions for a savory, creamy comfort food soup perfect for fall.

3. Steak and Hemp Hearts with Eggs: scrambled my eggs into a bit of cauliflower rice and hemp hearts with veggies. Seasoned with paprika, added a couple ounces of steak, and voila, a hearty breakfast with plenty of protein takes just a few minutes to whip up.

Homemade Keto Mayo Avocado Egg Salad

Say hello to the easiest Keto Mayo I’ve ever made! It also happens to be the only Keto mayonnaise I’ve ever made, but I digress. Do this:

Keto Mayo Recipe

In your single serving Ninja Blender Cup, crack one hormone-free egg, yes, include the egg whites! Blend with 1/2 t mustard, 1 T Apple cider vinegar, pinch of Keto safe sweetener, and Himalayan pink salt. Then add 1 cup avocado oil and blend more. Done. Chill that Keto Mayo and get a bowl for the other ingredients. (Next time I will add a splash of lemon juice, but I was out). Now I’ve read that this will last just a few days, so you might want to whip it up specifically for a recipe. Well, looking here…I just happen to have an idea for you below!

Keto Avocado Egg Salad

One ripe avocado, two hard boiled eggs, 2 grape tomatoes, 1/4 cup Keto Mayo, chopped dill pickles. If my fridge had been stocked properly, green pepper and celery would have been delicious. Or grilled chicken. Served on a bed of greens. Make it your own, Keto Warriors! Oh, some fathead crackers or sour cream Keto “potato” chips would be perfect!
