The Mac Salad

Once upon a time Big Mac’s were my jam! Thankfully McDonald’s made me sick while I was pregnant and I never looked back. I do love this Big Mac Bowl recipe I found via The Hungry Girl’s website. I do not love her low-fat, calorie counting ways, so I decided to update my own keto version. Plus I like to maximize nutrients with each meal I eat, so I ditched some of her ingredients in favor of higher quality ingredients.
