It's all about Keto

Keto is the one of the biggest diet trends on the planet right now. But there’s a big time problem with keto, and it’s one that can’t go undiscussed: it can be a nutritional nightmare.

Add to the equation all the math you have to do to figure out your “macros”, plus peeing on sticks or sticking your finger to get blood to figure out if you’re in ketosis, and that my friend, is the reality of being on the keto diet.

That's why we're excited to share this recipe from the Hot Melt Diet program – a nutrient-dense version of keto with no peeing on sticks necessary!

Hot Melt Garlic Lime Salmon Recipe


2 salmon fillets
2 tablespoons ghee (divided)
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon seal salt

Avocado Salsa
1 ripe avocado, pitted and diced
2 tablespoons salsa (your choice)
2 tablespoons red onion, diced
2-3 tablespoons cilantro, chopped coarsely (use the stems, too!)
1 tablespoon olive oil 1/2 lime, squeezed
sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste


In a small bowl, toss together chili powder through sea salt. Rub half the melted ghee onto the salmon fillets, then follow up with the spices and sprinkle on the filet. In a skillet over a medium high heat, melt remaining ghee and let the pan get hot. Now add the salmon, skin side down, and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes, depending on the thickness of the filet. While the salmon is cooking, make the Avocado Salsa. In a medium bowl, toss all salsa ingredients together. Refrigerate if not using right away.
