I don’t know about you, but I love cabbage! Cabbage is one of those super veggies that has tons of health benefits.

This Keto Cabbage recipe is super simple, which is why I love it.

Cabbage is a favorite of mine because you can do so much with it. I will be sure to share some of my other favorites soon.

Unlike some of my least favorite greens (collards… ugh), cabbage doesn’t have an overly strong taste.

Sure, it doesn’t smell that great when you cook it, but that’s a small price to pay for this cholesterol-lowering veggie that is also rumored to help prevent cancer (I don’t make that claim, but some researchers do!).

 Low-Carb Cabbage With Bacon  Recipe:

Cabbage is often touted as one of the World’s Healthiest foods, and for a good reason. While I could sit here and share many of those reasons with you, you can just read the article to learn more.

Unlike many veggies and fruits, cabbage is relatively low in carbs and even lower in Net Carbs.

Once you reach your weight loss goals and your body has regulated itself, you can worry much less about getting carbs from natural sources like cabbage.

When I started the keto diet, I didn’t have much weight to lose, so I wasn’t as worried about carbs from veggies.

I follow 20 grams of carbs day diet, but if I go over because of cabbage, I don’t fret about it.

If you have a favorite keto cabbage recipe, I would love to try it.

Be sure to share yours in the comment section. I’ll give you credit if I add it to the blog!

Keto Cabbage Ingredients:

Keto Cabbage With Bacon Lunch Recipe- Something this simple to make shouldn't taste SO good! Low carb delight, get your fat and your veggies with this quick and simple lunch recipe. Bacon and cabbage with coconut oil. | ketosizeme.com

  • 2 cups shredded, Cabbage
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • Salt to taste

Want to get the most out of your dish? Salt is more than a seasoning.

As you probably already know, salt and keto go hand in hand. It’s important to replenish electrolytes when you are on keto, and one way you can do that is by ensuring you are getting enough sodium, magnesium, and potassium.

Quality sodium is what we are talking about at the moment, and many keto’ers swear by Pink Himalayan Sea Salt.

I bought mind soon after starting keto, but before that had only ever used white table salt.

You should aim for 3,000-5,000 mg of additional sodium daily and try to get as much of that in your food a day as possible.

Of course, you always need to speak with your doctor before upping your salt intake, but low sodium on keto is miserable!

High-Fat Cabbage Directions:

  1. Fill a pot with just enough water to cover the cabbage and boil the cabbage for 5-7 minutes.
  2. Cook bacon and crumble.
  3. Add salt and bacon to cabbage and enjoy

Just curious, but how did you get such a high calorie count on this recipe? When I made it mine only came out to 92 calories per 1 cup serving. 2 cups shredded cabbage= 34 calories, 4 slices of bacon=160 calories. Total calories=194 or 92 per serving.

I'm thinking maybe some sort of oil? Or very thick cut bacon.
