Pizza, for breakfast!? Yes, it’s true! Sometimes on keto, I get cravings at weird times. Breakfast food for dinner, and dinner for breakfast. In this case, I was really craving a pizza in the morning. So, I thought it’d be a really nifty idea to use a waffle base as a pizza. It worked great – and it even makes it easy to pull apart each quarter and eat it like a slice of pizza. You can top the pizza waffle with anything you’d like to – scrambled eggs and bacon with some ranch as the sauce. Or, go another..
The ketogenic diet was originally developed almost 100 years ago to treat epilepsy. Nowadays, it is used as a nutrition plan by health-conscious men and women to optimize body composition and athletic performance. Recent research suggests that high fat, very-low carb diets have another benefit: They may help control glucose, triglycerides, insulin, and body weight in people with diabetes. The research below shows the ketogenic diet may be an effective tool you can use to manage symptoms of Diabetes, alongside exercise and medication. Cutting through the Fat: What is Diabetes? Before we get to research, we need to review some..
When this was first made for me, I didn’t believe that the peanut butter would add anything of value to this dish – in fact, I thought it would take away from the taste. Boy was I wrong. The peanut butter adds that sweet element that plays so great with all of the rich and savory notes of the dish. The pepperjack cheese adds just a small hint of spice after each bite – which is a perfect addition. This is a fantastic option for a brunch or a heavy breakfast if you’re the type that skips lunch. It’s a..
In honor of National Ice Cream Day (yes, it’s a thing!), I made one of the lowest carb ice creams that I have before. Coming in at only 1.3g Net Carbs per serving, this can be eaten without having to worry about any of the macros. It’s almost pure fat – and it tastes fantastic to boot. The flavors of the brown butter and heavy cream come together to form an almost caramel type flavor. If you’re familiar with the keto caramel recipe, then you’ll see that this one has some similarities. You brown the butter, add cream, and mix..
As most of you know, I’m a huge fan of Asian food and flavors. Surprisingly, I’ve never had flanken cut short ribs (most familiar with the Korean style short ribs). I found them in the supermarket a few weeks back and grabbed some to try. I have to tell you – they are well worth it! They’re not too expensive, they’re extremely tender and delicious, and best of all – packed full of fats. I didn’t have any Kimchi on hand, so I served with some purple cabbage, cilantro and a soy/vinegar based dipping sauce. Traditionally, these grilled ribs (kalbi..
My girlfriend’s favorite flavor of ice cream is Salted Caramel from a local creamery here. I’ve really been playing around with the ideas of sweet and salty for an ice cream flavor to see how much more of the sweetness comes out with the salt aspect. I wanted to recreate both the texture and flavor of boutique ice cream. This one definitely fits the bill. The flavors of butterscotch play perfectly with the saltiness that comes through. Though, I do want to say to make sure to use a flaked sea salt. Using lite salt or kosher salt might give..
Typically pesto is a very simple recipe of basil, pine nuts, parmesan cheese, garlic and olive oil. Over the years people have added more and more ingredients to adapt to tastes and preferences. My personal addition is the tomato paste. I felt like it was slightly bitter with the basil and pine nuts competing for top flavor in the pesto. So, a touch of tomato paste adds some adicity, sweetness, and cuts back on the bitterness. On keto, there’s a lack of condiments to use that aren’t mayo based, so I thought making a very flavorful pesto would be a..
Being that the weather is heating up, the humidity is rising, and it seems like some days are just too hot – these popsicles will do just the trick. We went out to the Hmong Sheboygan Summer Festival on Sunday and although tons of fun, it was really hot! Once we got home, partially drenched in sweat, I knew that I had to make something that would cool us both off. The idea of keto and popsicles usually doesn’t resonate with me that well. They’re normally really hard (due to the liquids) or partially solidified fat mixed with liquid. All..
I based this off of the crust that’s from my 5 Minute Pizza recipe. Although this one will take longer than 5 minutes, it gives a viable way to make flatbread crust that’s dairy free. Although it’s made from mostly egg, the good news is that the egginess doesn’t seem to come through in taste. You can top it with any toppings you’d like to! If you want to keep the toppings dairy free, there are many nut-based cheese alternatives that you can make. From macadamia nut spreads to cultured “cream cheese” made from coconut cream, a quick search online..
I’ve been on a mission lately to use up different ingredients found around most common households. There’s been quite a few e-mails sent to me lately about tuna melts. I never really had too many of these pre-keto, but I’ve had my fair share of grilled cheese and knew exactly what to do to get something portable, easy to make, and perfect for any time of the day. These keto tuna melt bites really fit the bill. The crispy outside matches great with the soft, creamy filling on the inside. It really is as if you made a fried tuna..
