Baked Brie Juicy Lucy

Baked Brie Juicy Lucy

The good ol' juicy lucy, stuffed with cheese and absolutely delicious. The cheese melts all over the burger as you're eating it, adding extra bursts of flavor and an extremely juicy consistency. We'll be baking this burger...yes, baking it. It may sound weird but I've been experimenting with cooking meat in my oven on convection setting, and I've had spectacular results. We'll be using convection baking for this. So make sure you DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN at all during the cook time. If your oven ...

Low Carb Focaccia Bread

Low Carb Focaccia Bread

Bread, bread, bread. That's all that seems to run through some peoples mind where they're on a ketogenic diet. Don't worry though, this versatile and low carb focaccia bread will help you out. I normally don't bake much bread, because I don't really find I have any cravings for it. That being said, it does have a lot of uses, and it is especially useful for people that are only just transitioning to a ketogenic lifestyle. Hamburgers, sandwiches, toast, fried bread with bacon and eggs. ...

Macadamia & Coconut Keto Custard

Macadamia & Coconut Keto Custard

I've been looking for some different ways to use the Homemade Macadamia Nut Butter that I made the other day. I've not had custard in a long time, but for some odd reason it popped into my head and I got a craving. I set out to make a recipe that can stand up to low carb, but still taste great. I went for a texture that custard should be when baked - some egginess, but a velvety soft texture. As you chew, the notes from the vanilla, egg, coconut milk, and then macadamia nut butter come ...

Pumpkin Flax Cookies with Almond Butter Icing

Pumpkin Flax Cookies with Almond Butter Icing

I went to the store the other day and saw some Flaxseed Meal on the shelf. I remembered all the breads and treats I used to make with flax, so I decided to pick some up and see what I could come up with. I love flax, but some people can't handle it. It's mostly made up of insoluble fiber, so if you have a weak stomach or a weak digestive system - it will send you to the bathroom! These cookies turned out amazing. They taste great, and the flax really pushes a more earthy and crunch texture to ...

All you have to do is implement a few of these budgeting techniques and strategies: Follow ...

Homemade Macadamia Nut Butter

Homemade Macadamia Nut Butter

To be honest I've been seeing everyone telling me to to do a post on how to make your own nut butter for a while now. I'm pretty lazy when it comes to making my own foods that I can easily just buy themselves already done. But I started to get curious and decided to try making Macadamia Nut Butter. Not only can you reduce the carb count, filler nutrient amounts, and increase your total nutrients for what you're making, you can also tailor it all to your own liking. Peanut butter, almond ...

With all the new people finding, switching, and transitioning into a low carb diet, I figured it was about time I put together an FAQ on all the common questions that are asked when someone is starting out. I don't go too in depth in the answers, but I tried to give a direct answer and then link to a more in depth article on the topic to help you fully understand it. If you have any other questions you'd like to be added, changed, or are unsure about - please feel free to leave a comment ...

Bacon and Beef Stuffed Bell Peppers

Bacon and Beef Stuffed Bell Peppers

For people on a ketogenic diet, changing meals up is crucial. The same boring hamburgers without the bun just don't do it for some of us over time. Adding in some meals that are out of the ordinary, while still using the same ingredients helps us to thrive, survive, and prosper. Stuffed bell peppers are a fantastic way to try something new. While the ingredients aren't all that new, the taste will be. The fat of the beef and bacon gets to completely slather and run through the beef, ...

Crispy & Delicious Kale Chips

Crispy & Delicious Kale Chips

I know when you're on a ketogenic diet, you really can't get much crunch in your life. The best we get is some cheese crisps, the crunch of raw vegetables, and maybe pork rinds once in a while. But they're just not the same! If you've been searching for some potato chips, these may just rid you of the cravings. The salty taste, the extreme crunch, and...the added health benefits of kale. What's not to lose? Now, when you're cooking these you have to be careful. There's 2 important ...

Homemade Tomato Sauce

Homemade Tomato Sauce

Although I don't use tomato sauce too much, I had to share this recipe. I recently made a trio of meatballs, including bacon with mozzerella, chorizo with cheddar, and italian sausage with pepperjack. The problem with a ketogenic diet is that we must be careful with those sugary vegetables (and pseudo-vegetables like tomatoes). I found a great tomato sauce that many of you will love. It's called Flora Tomato Sauce, and it doesn't have many carbs per cup! I decided to use this to create a more ...
