Low Carb Cheeseburger Salad

You know if you’ve followed me for a while that I don’t follow any special diet or any specific way of eating. I pretty much just eat regular ole food but in moderate proportions. I’ve yo-yo dieted for more years of my life than I care to count. It all works for a while (in terms of weight loss) but I always go back to where I was.Low Carb Cheeseburger Salad mixed on a plate

And at this stage in my life, I don’t need to be on a special diet for health reasons. As much as I would love to lose about 30 pounds, it is just too hard for me to maintain it for more than a couple of years at a time. I feel like I’m just coming to an age of acceptance. Ha! This is how I was made and I just want to be healthy and not stress about my size.

Special diet needs

However, I certainly understand that some folks must follow very specific diets for health reasons like diabetes. So, what I am trying to do is categorize certain recipes on here, like this Low Carb Cheeseburger Salad recipe from Wholesome Yum, as best as I know how. Disclosure: I’m not an expert on any specific diet regimen at all.Low Carb Cheeseburger Salad with homemade Thousand Island Dressing

There are so many out there (diabetic, kidney disease, heart disease, Celiac disease, etc.) Then you have specialty diets like Paleo, vegetarian, vegan, low carb, low sugar, Weight Watchers, keto, etc. But if I know for sure that a certain recipe will fall under a certain category (like low carb) then I will do my best to put it in that diet category. I do try to provide nutrition facts for each recipe but I always encourage those who rely on those nutrition facts for health reasons to use their own common sense and to use their own trusted apps or nutrition calculators to figure out exact numbers. Low Carb Cheeseburger Salad recipe from The Country Cook
