Back in February I ran a quick poll on Facebook, to see what you guys wanted to see more of… Main Dishes, Desserts, or Side Dishes… Side Dishes were clearly, almost overwhelmingly, the most requested.  So I present to you this amazingly delicious, oh so nutritious, side dish filled with buttery garlic goodness; Keto Garlic Butter Mushrooms.

In my version of keto I strive to eat whole nutrient dense foods, and limit processed foods (and even the processed foods I eat from time to time are still made with natural ingredients, free from artificial colors and preservative.  Personally, I use the 80-20 rule, meaning my diet is made up of at least 80% whole foods, and the remaining 20% is reserved for processed foods or treats. I would love to sit back and tell you I eat 100% organic whole foods that I grew from a garden and picked myself, but that’s just not realistic (for me).  So I do the best I can, I make an effort to choose nutrient dense whole foods when possible and not stress out or beat myself up if I choose a less healthy option that still fits my macros. Sometimes I think it is just as important to fuel the soul as it is your body.

I love wild mushrooms and whenever I’m at the grocery store with mushrooms on the list I always look for something unusual or fun sounding instead of just plain white button mushrooms.  The variety of different earthy flavors and the plethora of nutrients makes this fantastic side dish a little different every single time I make it. But that’s what makes it such a great accompaniment to the rest of your meal.
