Mediterranean Zucchini Noodle Pasta – Low Carb, Gluten-Free, Primal
Per serving – 231 calories; 20 g Fat; 6.5 g Protein; 6.5 g Carbs
A super flavorful and simple recipe that’ll fulfill your taste for something pasta-ish. The recipe does include Parmesan and feta cheese. Remove to keep it dairy-free and I’m sure it’ll still be scrumptious.

Easy Keto Swedish Meatballs
Per serving (3 meatballs) – 544 calories; 46 g Fat; 28 g Protein; 1 g Carbs
Inspired by Ikea’s Swedish meatballs, this recipe is said to be just as good but without all the carbs. What I like is it includes a sauce and cauliflower mash.
The recipe does include dairy, but I believe you might be able to get away with substituting the cream for full-fat coconut milk or coconut cream.
But, heads up, if you do sub with the coconut milk or cream, you might add a coconut taste to your Swedish meatballs.

Keto Shrimp Scampi
Per serving – 366 calories; 15 g Fat; 49 g Protein; 7 g Carbs
Since going paleo 5 years ago, I haven’t had a good shrimp scampi in a while. This shrimp scampi calls for summer squash noodles and tips on how to make them.
Now, there are stores that sell spiralized vegetables so all you’ll need to do is grab a box instead of a spiralizer. Unless you’d rather make your own.
Shrimp tossed in white wine or chicken broth coupled with butter over summer squash noodles? Um, yum!
