This Reuben Salad has all the classic flavors of the traditional sandwich minus the carbs and grease that you would normally get from the pub or diner. It’s super easy to prep for lunch or a light dinner and the kids ate it too! This is a great option if you’re following low carb or keto. Scroll down for my recipe for my Reuben Salad below.

Reuben Salad

Ingredients:

  • Rye bread torn into chunks
  • 1-2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1-2 heads of romaine, torn
  • 1/2 lb of deli corned beef sliced into strips.
  • 1/2 lb of deli swiss cheese sliced into strips.
  • 1 cup of sauerkraut or cole slaw (I do cole slaw since I don’t like sauerkraut)
  • Russian dressing

Directions:

  1. First make your rye bread croutons. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place your rye bread chunks on the baking sheet and toss with melted butter. Put in the oven until golden brown.
  2. While the croutons are baking, prepare your salad. I have found that if you’re serving a group of people, you can make a board and place each ingredient in separate bowls so that people can make their own individual salads. Or just combine all ingredients in one large bowl and toss.
  3. Top with croutons right before serving.

If you’re looking for great salad bowls these are my favorite! They’re awesome for pasta too!

Keto pumpkin spice latte

Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte

Enjoy your favorite fall coffee drink and stick to your diet with this healthier

Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe.

My husband and I recently started keto this past week.  What a time to start – this is the time of year when I crave all of those yummy comfort foods and of course my fave pumpkin spice coffee drinks that are full of sugar. So I was determined to come up with a recipe to duplicate my beloved bevy but make it keto friendly. Here is my Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe, at only 2 grams of net carbs.

Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of fresh brewed coffee
  • 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 2 Tbsp of butter
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice (make sure there’s no added sugar)
  • 3 packets of stevia
  • 2 Tbsp of heavy whipping cream
  • Optional – MCT oil or coconut oil

You will need:

A handheld frother. I literally have a love affair with mine. Click here for mine.

Directions:

  1. In a pot over medium heat mix together pumpkin puree, butter, almond milk, vanilla extract and pumpkin pie spice. (Make it a bulletproof coffee by adding a little MCT oil or coconut oil!) Bring to a bubble.
  2. While the pumpkin mixture warms in the pot, brew two cups of coffee.
  3. Stir the coffee into the pumpkin mixture stirring well.
  4. Add the heavy whipping cream and stevia.
  5. Using a handheld frother (linking mine here), gently whip all together in the pot.
  6. Pour into two mugs and enjoy either hot or cold.
  7. Optional – Top it off with a little extra whipped cream and some pumpkin pie spice. (To make homemade whipped cream, mix some whipping cream and a sprinkle of stevia in a mixing bowl with a blender until whipped cream forms).

Sooooo much better than the typical sugary version at your local coffee shop and healthier too!

I love to see what you create, so if you make this be sure to take a photo and tag me on Instagram @ourtiny_nest!
