Oh, My Yum, you are going to love these Keto Cheesy Baked Tomatoes! This recipe is sponsored by SheSpeaks/Rubbermaid.
I have been so busy since my husband left but I have been snapping pictures of some of my favorite recipes on my phone so that I could share them with you. As I’ve said before my goal is to find fun new ways to add more veggies to this crazy keto lifestyle and tomatoes is one of my favorite ways to do that. One of the biggest problems I have when it comes to vegetables is spoilage. I don’t know what it is about my house, but fruits and veggies start to shrivel up and die as soon as they come through my door. Well, everything except apples. I’m not even sure they are real apples because they seem to live forever.
Last week I got three Rubbermaid® FreshWorksTM& food storage containers to try out for myself, and I have to say, these things are perfect for me! Even when I try to buy exactly what I need for my weekly recipes, I always end up losing a few produce items to the trash can. Some of the biggest offenders are greens, berries, and tomatoes, so that’s what I decided to use for my “fresh test.” The strawberries only made it two days (kids), but everything else is still alive and well in my fridge. The salad looks exactly like it did when I bought it. You can enter to win a 3pc set for yourself at the bottom of this post!
FreshWorks is a food storage container that uses patented FreshVentTM technology to keep produce fresher up to 80%* longer than traditional produce packaging. FreshVent regulates the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide to create the optimal environment so produce stays nearly as fresh as the day it was picked, while the CrispTrayTM helps reduce moisture and spoilage.
Enough science talk, let’s get to this recipe!
