Day 17 of the 21 Day Keto Challenge

As we get closer to the end of the structured challenge, it’s important that we learn a bit about WHY keto works.  This includes understanding why it’s not designed as a short term, quick-fix diet.  For me, I know I need to understand why something […]

As we edge closer to the halfway mark, it’s a good time to think about some of the complimentary health things we can do. Keto on its own is great, but when you team it with other changes like fasting and exercise, you really propel […]

Greek Keto Chicken Kebabs with Halloumi, Capsicum and Tzatziki

Greek Keto Chicken Kebabs with Halloumi, Capsicum and Tzatziki

A super quick and simple dish, these keto chicken kebabs are the perfect meal for a warm night or for a BBQ. Marinate ahead for maximum flavour, but these can also be marinated for a short amount of time if you are in a rush.

I buy my halloumi from a local deli and the quality is always much higher than at the supermarkets. I have tried supermarket halloumi before and it cracked, so if you only have access to the supermarket stuff, I would suggest letting it come to room temperature before skewering it to help with the cracking.

 

Lastly, if you are using wooden or bamboo skewers, soak them in water for at least 10 minutes as this stops the wood burning while you are cooking it.

 

Pair this with my Keto Pumpkin and Feta Salad for a complete, nutritious and keto friendly meal.
