Low Carb Keto Friendly Recipe

pickle-juice-recipe.jpg

Kind of like Beattle Juice only Pickle Juice. If you have done any kind of research into a low carb-keto diet you have probably seen posts about pickles and drinking pickle juice.

The reason everyone is talking about pickles and pickle juice is because it's an excellent way to prevent you from getting headaches, muscle cramps and getting dehydrated when you are on a low carb- keto diet especially when you are first starting out. Even before I started my low carb way of eating a found out that I could stop my migraines in their tracks with some pickle juice. 

WHY PICKLES AND HOW DOES THE PICKLE JUICE WORK?

The pickle juice just happens to be the perfect mix of salt, water, and vinegar which renew the electrolytes in your body. It also helps you stay hydrated too. Did you know that athletes drink pickle juice too? It a much better drink than those awful sticky sugar filled sports drinks.

After draining several bottles of pickles of their juice I decided to make my own pickle juice. I already make pickles, I come from pioneer stock and we pickle everything! Here is our tried and true delicious pickle brine recipe.

PICKLE JUICE (SANS CUCUMBERS)

Wash and dry canning jars.  In a large pot combine water, vinegars, and salt. Bring to a simmer then add garlic cloves, dill, and red pepper flakes. Simmer for 5 minutes for flavors to blend. Pour into quart jars.  

That's it! Peasy Peasy! Store in the fridge.

Taco on a low carb keto diet? You bet! I wouldn't go with out some good Mexican flavory keto tacos in my life.

🎵"If you like Cinco de Mayo, so you  c'n eat tacos all day. If you're not into carbs, and you have half a brain. If you like taking walks at midnight ..." 🎵 I know, in another life I was weird al with food lyrics haha.

There is no way I'm missing Taco Tuesdays just because I'm on a low carb keto diet. I love Mexican foods and flavors. Any taco can easily be converted to a low carb - keto taco by replacing the taco shell with your favorite lettuce. I used romaine hearts but a butter lettuce taco shell would be really good too.

Do you make tacos for Taco Tuesday? These turned out so good. You're going to love them and so will your family.
