Not unlike Persephone, Sam and I find pomegranate seeds incredibly tempting. When my wife was diagnosed with severe Type 2 Diabetes, we thought that going keto would leave us out in the cold regarding one of our favorite fruits. Turns out, pomegranate seeds contain antioxidants that lower blood glucose levels and reduce bad cholesterol.
It is tempting when eating keto to romanticize the carbs in an experience like eating Swiss Raclette. My fond memories of eating it for the first time are really about the cheese, though. To make this dish keto, just a few easy swaps were needed. Fresh vegetables stand in for the potatoes. Toasted Mug Bread replaces the baguettes. The raclette cheese and dried beef remain unchanged. I serve it with a light garden salad.
