These one-ingredient keto tacos are perfect to have for #TacoTuesday! You’ll only need some cheddar cheese and your favorite taco toppings.

One taco shell has a total of 1 gram net carbs.

The one ingredient you’ll need for these tacos

Yes, you can create a delicious taco with just one ingredient: cheddar cheese. There are some tips I’d like to give you when choosing a cheddar cheese because not all of them are equal when it comes down to the ingredients. Natural cheddar cheese isn’t orange, it usually has some colorant added to it, to make it look more appealing. But some colorants are not harmful, and some are.

Stay clear of cheddar cheese that has artificial coloring listed in the ingredient list like tartrazine (aka Yellow No 5). This is a food dye often used in food products in the U.S. (luckily in Europe this food dye is banned). It’s linked to multiple health issues and even cancer, so check the ingredient list when shopping for cheddar cheese.

Natural food coloring can be listed as Annato or Beta Carotene. These are coming from natural sources such as the seeds of the achiote tree or carrots.

These keto egg filled meatballs are reminding me so much of my childhood; Have you ever had ‘birds nests’? That is what my grandma used to name them. She would make these for me as a kid, and I loved them. She taught me how to prepare them, but I made some adjustments so they stay keto-friendly.

One egg filled meatball has a total of only 8 grams of net carbs.

This recipe is easier than it may seem. I usually prepare these in the oven, as is described it in the recipe, but you can also prepare these in the air-fryer. In that case you can just replace the baking in the oven-part of the recipe by placing them in the air-fryer and fry them for 20 minutes at 190 degrees celsius or 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

The ingredients for these keto egg filled meatballs

Ground beef: I like to use organic grass-fed, grass-finished ground beef because this meat is free of antibiotics and hormones and it’s higher in nutrients. But you can use any of your preferred ground meats such as pork, chicken, lamb, etc.

Eggs: organic, pasture raised or conventional.

Spices: To season the beef I used salt, black pepper, paprika powder, ground cumin and garlic powder. For the tomato sauce I used salt, black pepper, ground cumin, paprika powder and dried oregano.

Coconut oil: I used coconut oil to sautee the meatballs and the ingredients in the tomato sauce. You can use any of your preferred healthy cooking fats.

Chopped tomatoes: For the tomato sauce I used organic chopped tomatoes from a can. You can also use any other tomato sauce without added sugars. Make sure to check the ingredient list. It should only have tomatoes listed.

Sometimes you just want something nice and sweet, that is keto-friendly but also doesn’t take you hours to prepare in the kitchen. Well, this recipe will set you up with just that. This keto-friendly chocolate mousse is super delicious and ready in no time!

One serving has only 2 grams of net carbs.

The ingredients for this keto chocolate mousse

Heavy cream: When choosing a heavy cream make sure it’s unsweetened, organic, and preferably from grass-fed, grass-finished cows. This way you avoid the added sugars, antibiotics, and GMO crops that are fed to these animals which in turn can harm your health.

Raw cacao powderRaw cacao powder is unsweetened and in the purest form. This way, you can avoid any extra additives that are often found in most chocolate.

Powdered erythritol: I like to use erythritol as a sweetener for my keto recipes. You can also replace this sweetener with any other keto-friendly sweetener of your likings like monk fruit or stevia. Make sure to use a powdered (or liquid stevia) form, this prevents the mousse to taste kind of ‘crunchy’.

The flavoring: To give the chocolate butter mousse some extra flavor, I added vanilla extract. You can choose to leave this ingredient out, but I prefer to use it since it gives it a more delicious taste.

The ingredients for the keto stuffed cabbage rolls

Canned tomatoes: for the canned tomatoes I choose organic crushed tomatoes. You could use fresh tomatoes you cook and crush yourself and add some salt, but to keep it convenient I chose to use organic crushed tomatoes from a can.

Spices: I used salt, black pepper, paprika powder, ground cumin, and chili powder in the tomato sauce. If you like your tomato sauce spicy, you can add in more chili powder. I like it medium-spicy, so I used a small amount of chili powder to get a hint of spice, but not have our mouths on fire.

Ground meat: in this recipe, I used ground pork. But you can use any ground meat of your preference.

For the stuffed cabbage rolls

To garnish

  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • some fresh cilantro


Start with making the sauce

  • In a medium-sized pot or pan, melt the coconut oil on medium heat. Cook the garlic and onion for 1-2 minutes.

Prepare the stuffed cabbage rolls.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 °F or 180 °C.

  • Place the rolls into a baking dish.
