Just dropping this quick Keto Cacio e Pepe recipe for those of you who love the trending Italian dish. So simple to make and a healthier option made with frozen cauliflower rice. If you want the real deal you can check out this recipe.
All you need is 4 oz of butter, 2 garlic cloves, 1 cup of parmesan and salt and pepper.
Check out the video on how I made it.
I simply love this dish because it brings back memories of when I was a kid and my mom would stir up either Cacio e Pepe or Ail e Olio. I can't help eating both but with cauliflower rice.
Memories of home always come back to me when I make my favourite italian dishes. Sadly as a type 2 diabetic it's not always easy to modify some dishes. However, I always try my best to put a spin on something my mom used to make and ketofy it.
I used to love my moms cannelloni and I am sure I can come up with a low carb recipe but sometimes my moms dishes are just not to be messed with and can be enjoyed on special occasions as is.
Eating low carb foods seems so easy to me. After all, it's been over 3 years since I have been eating this way. It's just second nature to me now. As a diabetic it's just a non-negotiable to me and will have to eat this way the rest of my life.
Luckily I love it so much. Do you find it easy to eat low carb? Drop me a note, I would love to hear from you.
Why not enjoy these with some low carb ricotta bites while we are on the Italian tip 🙂
