Texas Brisket and Spicy Bacon Jalapeno Turnip Greens

I hope you have enjoyed Food Porn July.

I’m going to close out this series with my favorite low-carb or Keto combination: Texas Brisket with Bacon Jalapeno Turnip Greens. I started eating this combination about a year ago at Whole Foods. I will usually just grab it on the weekends when we are out doing our grocery shopping.

All of these recommendations reflect my own tastes. Different people will prefer differ foods. The key to success on a low-carb or Keto diet is to learn the basic principles and adapt your favorite foods and meals around them. The biggest lifestyle change is usually in side dishes.

If you are eating lots of steak, pork chops, pulled pork, ribs, brisket, salmon and rotisserie chickens in your diet, you’re not going to be hungry. You don’t have to sit there and peck at a salad to lose weight. The easiest way to lose weight is to eat fatty meats and leafy green vegetables while cutting carbs. The fats and the fiber will quell your hunger and lower your overall calorie intake.

  1. “The easiest way to lose weight is to eat fatty meats and leafy green vegetables.”

    I’ve eaten like this my whole life. When I eat potatoes, I never peel them. Neither my wife or my mom did, either. The skin of the potato is where all of the vitamins and flavour are.

    When I go to the BBQ pit, I usually get brisket, smoked sausage and pork.

    I get Saddler’s Smokehouse brisket in the grocery store. I heat it up, with pinto beans, in the microwave. Or put it between whole wheat bread and make a sandwich.

    I like Head Country BBQ Sauce.


  2. I like to put a dash of Tobasco or Louisiana hot sauce in my greens.

    I keep a jar of sliced Jalapéños, and a jar of diced Jalapéños on hand. I like to add them to salads, vegetables, cornbread, etc.
