May 2017: Low-Carb Salad Recipes, Video Presentation from Dr. Colin Champ, and New Authority Nutrition Articles
May is National Salad Month! I absolutely love salads. In fact, I eat at least one a day, and some days I have salad for all three meals. Unfortunately, the salads you get in restaurants are often loaded with carbs due to additions like croutons, sugary nuts and sweet salad dressings. Here are 5 delicious, truly low-carb salads from some of best LC food bloggers around. Enjoy!

Video Presentation from Colin Champ, MD
The Ketogenic Diet and Cancer: Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks
February 2016, Metabolic Therapeutics Conference
It's truly an honor to share this video from Dr. Colin Champ, whom I've met several times and hold in extremely high regard. Dr. Champ is a radiation oncologist from Pittsburg who supports ketogenic diet therapy as an adjunct to standard treatment of certain cancers. He's published several research papers on the benefits of ketogenic diets for cancer, and his presentations are among the most popular at professional conferences. He also has a wonderful nutrition blog called Caveman Doctor where he discusses diet and other lifestyle measures for preventing disease and increasing quality of life.
Dr. Champ's talks at the 2016 and 2017 Metabolics Therapeutics Conferences in Tampa were exceptionally interesting and inspiring, delivered in his unique, engaging style. This year's presentation isn't available online yet, but I know you'll enjoy his 2016 talk as much as I did.
