Hi! I created Ketology after struggling for years with hormonal changes and weight gain. As I got older, I found managing my weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. Within 3 months of switching to a ketogenic lifestyle tailored for my age, I not only shed 30 pounds of stubborn fat, but my mood improved, my focus sharpened and I have had nothing but positive effects! Learn more about my journey here.

I learned to appreciate scallops later in life – after I started keto and got them once in my monthly Butcher Box delivery on a whim. Since then, I get them almost every month and perfected a couple of keto scallop recipes which I make every month without fail, one being my keto bacon-wrapped scallops with spicy mayo in lettuce wraps.

I love the texture of scallops and the flavor that just brings me back to my days growing up on the Connecticut coast. And something about bacon and scallops is a marriage made in heaven. This recipe for bacon-wrapped scallops with a spicy mayo has become a favorite among my family and friends I turn to over and over again – it’s perfect for a keto lunch that’s filling but doesn’t make you feel like you overdid it at all.

When buying bacon, look for sugar-free bacon as many traditional, store-bought varieties do add sugar. You can usually find a sugar-free version – but I just get bacon along with my scallops in my Butcher Box so I don’t have to go on a hunt at the market!
