Summer is such a treat on keto as the berries are in season and there’s so many things to make with them! The weather this year has made the harvests bountiful and they’ve been popping up at just about every farmers market we’ve been to. Since summer’s coming to a close, we thought that picking up some strawberries would be a great idea before they’re out of season! The keto cloud bread does perfect with this easy shortcake recipe. Instead of using the traditional biscuit or croissant pre-made dough to make the shortcake portion, these light and fluffy cakes are..
If you all didn’t know by now, Asian food is in one of my favorite categories of food. Prior to keto, grabbing take-out was the time of the week I looked forward to the most. From Sweet and Sour Chicken to Grilled Short Ribs, I’ve tried to recreate as many favorites as I can into keto friendly recipes that everyone can enjoy. Kung Pao Chicken is traditionally a spicy stir fry made with chicken, peanuts, vegetables, and chili peppers. It normally calls for Sichuan peppercorns, but since they can be a bit expensive and for some hard to get –..
Sweet, sour, spicy, and absolutely addicting. These pickles combine multiple layers of flavor into a simplistic pickle that you can add to almost any dish. Grill up a burger, some hotdogs, or just have them with a salad – adding these flavor packed pickles will surely brighten any dish. On a ketogenic diet, a little bit of crunch is never a bad thing, either. These little guys will not only add flavor, but they will add a great texture to almost anything you put them with. The sweetness initially comes through on the pickles, which pairs well with many savory dishes..
If you’ve ever been a fan of coconut shrimp, this recipe’s for you! The classic coconut shrimp gets a twist with chicken and a deep curry flavor that runs throughout. To match alongside it, we pair pork rinds with the chicken to bring the flavors out and allow for a crispy chicken tender. Never thought you’d have crunchy on keto? Think again. To make the flavors of the chicken nuggets really sing, I decided that a dipping sauce was absolutely mandatory for this. A sweet and spicy mango dipping sauce was created. It’s super creamy and adds everything you want to complete..
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..
