Cheesy Ranch Chicken and Broccoli Bake (KETO)

Alas, we have succumbed to the Keto Diet which requires us to eat very few carbs, lots of protein, veggies and some fruits. Beginning today you will see Keto friendly recipes. This is not to say they aren’t tasty!! I am a novice here and still in the early stages of figuring out what is good and bad. Help me!! If I post a recipe which you know is not KETO please let me know. I need your help… You know if I post it, it must have at least tasted good…LOL. Here we go….

  1. Glad to see that you are on Keto! It’s been my eating style for over a year now. I’d be happy to share my favourite recipes with you. I’m returning to Mexico on the 3rd of November. I’m looking forward to seeing you. … Bev
