I frequently get asked the question “How do I eat more fat?” While in a perfect world, you can eat globs of coconut oil off a spoon, it’s just not that attractive of an offer to most ketoers out there. Instead, you can create a salad dressing, pack it on top of a salad full of greens (micronutrient filled), and enjoy to your hearts content! Instead of worrying about how many carbs a dressing has, or which to choose from – you could make your own in just about the same amount of time. In fact, it’ll be done in..
Truth be told, I’ve never really had the opportunity to try tofu. It’s always been on the list of things that seem like they’ll be nasty if I tried them, or other people have told me the horror stories connected with it. But, I’ve got a pretty open mind and loved the idea of giving it a try with my own spin on it. Let me tell you – if you’ve never had tofu, or think you don’t like it…you need to re-try it! Baked tofu is wonderful. Instead of the soft, gooey, flavorless mess that people usually describe, you..
Sometimes we really miss going to a Thai restaurant and being able to sit down and enjoy the food. But, being keto we try to find ways around that and still be able to make food that plays to the cravings we have. Last night, Pad Thai was on the menu – and let me tell you – it was AMAZING! We inhaled the dish within minutes and felt so satisfied after – just like you would when eating a regular meal with normal pasta. Two things that really can’t go wrong in a dish: delicious AND healthy. The bean sprouts..
This recipe for sesame crispy beef is the keto-fied version of a classic dish found in many Chinese restaurants. We keep it keto-friendly with the use of daikon noodles instead of rice, trading out the typical sirloin steak for a fattier cut, and using creative ways to achieve the sweet aspects. This dish, when cooked at your local Chinese restaurant, typically has some sweetness. In this recipe, stevia paired with rice wine vinegar and vegetables does the job of creating a bit of sweet without compromising the carb count. Make sure that you’re not getting seasoned rice wine vinegar as..
A lot of fast food chains have tried to include healthier choices in recent years. However apple slices, full carb wraps, and 6 new fat free salad dressings don’t mesh with the low carb high fat lifestyle. Luckily there are still options when you need a fast food fix and are following the ketogenic diet. This will be your go-to guide to keto food when you’re in need – fast – and not at home. We’ve all been there. You’re out running errands on a Saturday afternoon and your tummy growls: it’s 2 pm and you haven’t eaten yet! Or..
Maintaining the keto way of eating while traveling: I can’t count the number of times that I’ve been e-mailed, messaged, or asked about this topic. It’s a common factor that when people travel, they’re just not sure if they can keep up with a high-fat ketogenic lifestyle. A few months ago, my girlfriend and I went on a small vacation through Portland and Seattle. I wanted to document all of the food I was eating to share the experience and to provide some tips and tricks with all of the curious folks out there. Being ketogenic while being on vacation..
This is a very popular rice dish that can be found in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. In fact, it is Malaysia’s national dish. Usually called Nasi Lemak, it is roughly translated to Rice Fat. When relating to the culture, that usually means coconut rice. It’s an extremely common dish that’s served pretty much everywhere: street vendors (garai), night markets (pasar malam), restaurants, and made in homes across the countries. Traditionally, it’s wrapped in banana leaves and sometimes held together with a newspaper or brown paper. My friend Hazim told me that it was his favorite breakfast pre-keto, where he..
Sambal is a sauce or condiment typically made from chili peppers and combined with secondary ingredients such as shrimp paste, garlic, ginger, scallion, sugar, and vinegar. Tamarind can also be seen commonly added to sambal to make variations on the condiment. I wanted to keep it simple and prepare a very easy sambal that you can make at home to re-create an authentic and real taste. Boiling and then blending the dried chilies make a great basic chili paste which can be used in frying cauliflower rice and zoodles or some stir-fries. Though a chili paste itself is not sambal..
My girlfriend and I have been on a serious jalapeno popper binge for the last few weeks. We love the spicy, creamy, and awesome flavors that come along with fresh jalapenos. Add some cheese, cream cheese, and a bit of spice in there – and you’ve got yourself a real keto hit. We go out a lot in the mornings and bring breakfast with ourselves to eat on-the-go. The strange stares and weird looks we get from people while we’re eating bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers for breakfast are priceless, but we had an even better idea. Why not combine one..
With national pancake day just having passed, I got the craving to make something special for myself. All of the ads that I kept seeing on TV for pancakes are definitely to blame, but I wanted something a little bit different. Apam Balik came to mind, which is a very common style of pancake that is seen in Malaysia and Singapore. In Malaysia, we see these pancakes filled with creamed corn, sugar, butter, and a peanut filling. In Brunei, we see them filled with condensed milk, peanuts, and a raisin filling. In Indonesia, we commonly see them with cheese and chocolate..
