If you don’t already have some ground beef in the fridge and are planning on buying some to make this mouth-watering dish, then we recommend you get some grass-fed beef.

This protein is packed with nutrition and it also contains a good amount of omega-3 fatty acids that have amazing benefits for our brains. Grass-fed beef has a really low profile of calories due to the diet of the cattle which is clean and natural.

This beef also contains another beneficial fatty acid which is called conjugated linoleic acid – CLA for short – which can help in preventing diseases like diabetes. It also helps obese people lose weight in a healthy manner.

A recent study concluded that people who were consuming CLA had better insulin sensitivity which means they had healthy sugar levels, hence lowers the risk of inducing diabetes. Moreover, grass-fed beef helps in improving immunity and reducing inflammation in the body, bolstering the longlasting health benefits of following a ketogenic diet.

Some suggestions for keto sides for these keto Swedish meatballs are mashed cauliflower or cauliflower rice with some beef gravy.

All you need for cauliflower mash is to blanch the florets from a cauliflower head in some hot water for 3 to 5 minutes. Put these florets in the food processor with some butter, couple tablespoons of cream cheese, and a dash of salt.

Blend until it reaches a nice creamy consistency, garnish with some freshly chopped chives and serve.

To add more taste to the cauliflower mash you can put a couple of garlic cloves to the food processor while processing the steamed cauliflower florets. This cauliflower mash will have around 128 calories and 7 g of net carbohydrates.

If you are making beef gravy at home, then to keep it keto-friendly you can add xanthan gum instead of flour or breadcrumbs for it to reach a thicker consistency.

To save time you can make the Keto Swedish Meatballs and cauliflower mash in bulk and store them in the freezer for up to a month and use them for busy weekdays meals.
