In one of my previous lives (before food blogging!) I used to cater houseboat trips on Utah's beautiful Lake Powell, and this recipe for Low-Carb Marinated Grilled Kabobs was one of my favorite things to make on the houseboat. This recipe became popular even with the old photos, but when I made it again recently I decided it must have a photo update. When when I took these new photos I remembered how hard it is to photograph hunks of meat, but even if I don't love the new photos completely, I think they're definitely an improvement!

And this marinade for beef is absolutely delicious! This recipe was a hit with Jake and his girlfriend Aubrey, and I think any red meat lover would enjoy this for a tasty meal from the grill. When I made this at Lake Powell I always used red wine in the marinade, but I've been making it with beef stock instead of wine for quite a few years now. And if you skip the Worcestershire Sauce (or use a Paleo/Whole 30 approved Worcestershire Sauce) these delicious low-carb and Keto Kabobs can easily be Paleo or Whole 30 as well.

If you live in a place where grilling season only lasts a few months a year, you can definitely cook kabobs like this on a Stove-Top Grill Pan or a George Foreman Grill as well. Either way you cook these tasty kabobs, I hope you enjoy trying the recipe!

A few weeks ago I claimed on social media that Low-Carb Loaded Cauliflower Mock Potato Salad was going to be my favorite new recipe of this summer. But as soon as I took a bite of this Low-Carb and High Protein Avocado Egg Salad, I could tell it was also a serious contender for that honor. This was so easy, so good, and so delicious, especially if you're someone who loves the combination of mayo + eggs like I do. I'm sure this is a new favorite egg salad I'm going to make often when I need something quick and tasty to eat!

I've seen recipes on the web for egg salad with avocado and egg salad with cottage cheese, and the idea of combining them had been swirling around in my head for a while now. Then last week my brother Rand came to visit, and he's a vegetarian. So I made this recipe as something that would work for a vegetarian houseguest and a protein-obsessed salad eater (that would be me), and we both loved it. Rand ate his inside Joseph's Low-Carb Pita Bread and I just ate mine plain.

And when I sat down to write this post I had a little bowl of the leftover egg and avocado salad, which was still delicious after being in the fridge overnight, yaay! I do think it's partly the combination of flavors in my dressing that made this such a wow for me, so if you try it I hope you will at least take a look at the recipe for my take on perfect egg salad and not just go on egg salad auto pilot! And I think you will like it!

It's not hard to tell that I'm a huge fan of grilling, but I first made these Low-Carb Greek-Seasoned Grilled Pork Chops with Lemon and Oregano when my grill was packed away at my old house during house renovations, and I tried the recipe out on both a Stovetop Grill Pan and a George Foreman Grill, and it was a success with both those methods. 

It seems like a lot of people like Greek-inspired recipes, and this recipe has some of the same flavors that have made Very Greek Grilled Chicken such a popular recipe on the site. I used boneless pork sirloin chops when I was cooking these Greek pork chops inside, but when I decided to re-do the photos and cook outside on the grill, I switched to bone-in pork chops. Both types of pork chops were great with this Greek marinade, hope you will try it no matter which cooking method you use!

If you're a food blogger with a mega-popular recipe like this Low-Carb Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake (seen by over 4 million people), you'll probably try to ignore the fact that you aren't all that thrilled with the photo you took more than six years ago when your sister Pam first told you about the recipe! Especially when this recipe turned out to be number one when I spotlighted the Top Ten Low-Carb Zucchini Recipes on Kalyn's Kitchen last summer.

But this year when I noticed people starting to visit the recipe again something snapped in my photographer brain, and I decided this amazing and easy way to cook zucchini simply MUST have a new photo. Do you agree that the new photos shows off the deliciousness a little better?
