This is a great plant-based, ketogenic main course that is full of phytonutrient rich ingredients that help you burn fat for fuel. If you are looking for a tasty vegan dish to enjoy than try this one out as it is really good!
Coconut flour wraps are one of my favorite foods as they taste great and you can do a lot with them as far as wraps, fajitas, etc. They are low in protein and carbs and high in healthy coconut fats which makes them a perfect food on the ketogenic lifestyle.
The cilantro lime vinegarette provides a ton of phytonurient rich anti-oxidants that help the body to cleanse and detoxify. The avocado and olive oil help the body to full out a higher proportion of fat soluble anti-oxidants from the veggies as well.
Our Cancer cleanse program is a plant based ketogenic diet that emphasizes a diet high in healthy fats, anti-oxidants and fiber and low in carbohydrates and protein. This is one of many foundational recipes we use on this plan!
