Cloud bread also known as Oopsie bread it a staple for those on a ketogenic diet. While the version I have for you today is made with cream cheese, this keto bread is also often made with cottage cheese or even ricotta.
The keto bread is also great with a scoop of keto chicken salad or egg salad in it.
Low Carb Lemon Chicken
The wraps are filled with low carb lemon chicken. Lemon is one of my favorite ways to flavor ketogenic foods as it is also great for helping to maintain alkaline balance. Maintaining healthy alkalinity in the body during keto dieting can be a challenge. An unbalance can contribute to keto flu.
