Week 2 – Keto Menu – Recipe #3
Here is the recipe card that came with the Green Chef meal prep. Click on the images to enlarge.
Ingredients and Nutritional Information
Macro Adjustment / Recommendations
The protein content is much higher than the fat in this recipe. However, this can be easily overcome by adding fat in the way of butter or approved keto oils over the veggies after prep. Also, the use of cashew, although acceptable for lazy keto/dirty keto, cashews are not highly recommended on the keto diet because they contain more carbs and less fat than pecans and almonds. For this, switch out the cashews for pecans or almonds for the added texture and nutty flavor.

It took less than 5 minutes to chop up the mushrooms, peppers and onions.
The only prep for the pork was to season it with the spice pack provided and sear on both sides
We added the veggies to the pork and added the pre-made seasonings provided. After the pork and veggies came off the heat, we fried up our eggs (not pictured)
For a meal that was relatively easy to put together, there were so many layers of delicious flavors! Toragashi spices contain heat, the veggies with the acidity, the egg with the rich fatty flavor and the cashews for nuttiness and the texture of crunch. Would we order this again? Absolutely! Both my husband and I enjoyed every bite and were full by the time our plates were empty.
