I was inspired by a fellow low carber and new blogger by the name of Tommy Runesson on this very simple low carb side dish, He lost over half his body weight on the Low Carb High Fat diet that is sweeping through Sweden right now. It is similar to Atkins in that they are both ketogenic diets, but LCHF as it is known is much higher fat especially during weight loss phases and focuses on real food and food quality too. He turned me on to this simple way to cook to Spinach and his mentor Skaldeman is fantastic as well.
Induction Friendly side dish, which was inspired by my LCHF friend in Sweden, Tommy Runesson
- 4 thick slices of bacon
- 4 cups spinach, raw
- 2 oz sharp cheddar cheese
- In a large frying pan, cook the thick slices of bacon. When almost done, remove bacon from the pan and chop into small pieces.
- Add spinach to the bacon oil in the frying pan, and turn down the heat. Stir the spinach into the bacon grease and add chopped bacon pieces. Cook until the spinach is well wilted.
- Add sharp cheddar to the frying pan, and stir it in. Serve warm.
