Cuban Picadillo

Cuban Picadillo is one of my husbands favorite meals.  It’s also a great way to include olives in a main dish.  My kids prefer canned green olives over jarred, but I am the opposite.  I think the jar olives bring a lot more flavor to the recipe since they have a more intense, briny flavor. This meal comes together quickly once you cook the ground beef.  Use a small skillet to finish cooking the dish.

    Hi, I’m new to the Keto diet way, which I am using to heal cancer, and am still learning how to do it correctly. I see your recipes in this cookbook seem to be aimed primarily at children? child portions/recipes. How do I adapt this for myself as an adult?

    Thanks, Shirl.

      The recipes are calculated by a registered dietitian to make sure calorie needs are met for growth and development without exceeding individual requirements. I strongly encourage you to seek out a dietitian who works with adults to evaluate your specific needs. Calorie intake and ratio are equally important to making the diet effective. Only a dietitian would be able to tell you exactly how many calories a what your correct ratio should be. I wish you the best with your treatment!
