Keto Coconut Cream Pies

Keto Coconut Cream Pies

I usually never have a sweet tooth, but today it was out in full force. I was craving coconut cream pie… badly! I didn’t want to make a whole pie, so I figured making individual sizes in ramekins would be best and they turned out amazing.   The hardest part about this recipe was the custard. I tried making a slurry (thickener) using coconut flour instead of using xanthan gum. I figured not only would the flour thicken the custard, but it would also give it a bit more of a coconut ...

Garlic and Herb Monkey “Bread”

Garlic and Herb Monkey “Bread”

Yes, I know that it is sort of a stretch to compare eggplant to bread. Once it’s covered in cheese I can say with certainty that you won’t miss the gluten. Especially when it comes to this keto spin on traditional garlic and herb monkey bread! Dig in to melty mozzarella cheese that encases each piece of cubed eggplant, and holds it together in a golden brown shell. The outside stays soft due to the texture and water content of the eggplant, but you will get a little crust on the edge and ...

Instant Pot Smothered Pork Chops

Instant Pot Smothered Pork Chops

These Smothered Pork Chops are a one pot dish that’s perfect for busy nights when we’re short on time but still want a homemade dinner that’s quick and easy. Boneless pork chops can be a challenge. They are a great source of protein but often come out dry or bland. This Instant Pot recipe creates moist, tender chops in a short amount of time. And smothering them with ...

Keto Spaghetti alla Carbonara

Keto Spaghetti alla Carbonara

Carbonara is an Italian staple. While you may not be able to have the delicious carby version, you can definitely make a similar keto kind! For this recipe, you will need shiritaki noodles. You can find them in the grocery store alongside the tofu. If you can’t find it, don’t fret! You can also use zucchini noodles, cucumber noodles, or even Palmini noodles (although, that’s a bit pricey.) One trick with carbonara is you have to follow the recipe to a ‘T.’ If you don’t, you could end ...

Roasted Mushroom and Walnut Cauliflower Grits

Roasted Mushroom and Walnut Cauliflower Grits

Savory, cheesy grits are one of my favorite comfort foods. Fortunately it's easy to transition them from a high-carb treat to a keto staple. Cauliflower is so versatile and as we all know, it can substitute everything from rice to creamy mashed potatoes. This recipe takes cauliflower to a beautifully satisfying middle ground with texture complimented by a savory cream and sharp cheddar accent. Add a protein packed vegetarian topping of smoky roasted mushrooms, and walnuts, and you have a version ...

Oven Roasted Caprese Salad

Oven Roasted Caprese Salad

I’ve always have a love affair with fresh mozzarella, but as we all know even on a ketogenic diet no food is truly “unlimited.” A traditional caprese salad used to be my go-to at any potluck because the vibrant mix of fresh basil and creamy mozzarella was better than any of those other lettuce based salads…until now! The beauty of this, warm twist on a classic, is that it is much more filling but with all of the traditional flavor. Because the salad base is fiber packed spinach, it ...

One Pot Shrimp Alfredo

It just takes a few minor adjustments and some quick cooking tips to make this one pot shrimp Alfredo! My absolute favorite part of this one pan recipe is that it goes from raw shrimp to a creamy sauce so quickly! Because you are cooking everything in a series of quick ...

Spinach Watercress Keto Salad

Spinach Watercress Keto Salad

A keto salad doesn't always have to have twelve different toppings or a long list of ingredients to be delicious, satisfying and nutrient dense! Sometimes the simplest of recipes can be a staple meal or an easy side to add with your favorite entrée. This salad is packed with healthy fats and can be altered slightly to meet any of your flavor preferences. You can try Asiago in place of Parmesan cheese, or baby kale or arugula in place of spinach. The key to making a fat burning salad is to ...

Bacon & Cheese Cauliflower Muffins

Bacon & Cheese Cauliflower Muffins

These delicious bacon and cheese muffins may look carby, but don’t let that fool you. They are only 2.2 net carbs per muffin. Plus, they are so easy to make! For this recipe, you will need cauliflower rice. Some stores do sell the cauliflower pre-chopped, but if you can’t find it, stick the vegetable into a blender and food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower is the size of a grain of rice. It’s fairly straightforward - the only annoyance is cleaning out the blender afterwards! The ...
