Fall is here! The leaves are slowly turning orange and the weather is becoming cooler each day that passes by. Pumpkins are popping up in the farmers market, and pumpkin spice…everything is making a return. I say that like it’s a bad thing, but I really do love the deep flavors that come out with pumpkin spice – and even better, I’m bringing them to you keto style.
I know many of you saw that the first month of Keto Delivered had its setbacks, but month two went much more smoothly – and here’s to hoping the same for month 3! I had a little bit too much fun in the kitchen bringing these recipes to life, trying to recreate old family favorites of mine and bringing your family new favorites as well.
As the season has changed, I really wanted to push some fall flavors into not only the Keto Delivered box ingredients, but also into the recipes. I really wanted to focus on that delicious spice cabinet feel that you get when you’re walking into my Grandma’s kitchen in the middle of fall. Or, when my mom used to bake her famous casseroles that gave just a little bit of Texas kick to keep your mouth and stomach warm through the cold months.
So, what’s in the box you ask? Let’s get into it: here’s the second month of Keto Delivered, unboxed for you!
Life of Riley Foods – Walnut Butter
Life of Riley crafts small-batch, specialty nut butters using only the highest quality ingredients to create unique blends inspired by their passion for superb eats and healthy living. They are made with organic and non-GMO ingredients and their products are always gluten, grain, soy, dairy, and free of artificial fillers. Sweetened only with touches of pure maple sugar, raw honey, or dried fruit – their products are some the highest quality around!
Walnuts in and of themselves are already fantastic nuts when it comes to keto. They’re high in fat, low in carbs, and absolutely delicious. Life of Riley doesn’t cut any corners when it comes to their nut butters – everything that goes into them are top quality. You won’t see any cheap oils in here, they use complementing oils to make their nut butters that much more creamy and flavorful.
This is honestly one of the best nut butters I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating – and that’s saying something! It’s almost addicting, and I advise you to use extreme caution when eating it with a spoon as it just goes down so easily. To get the best bang for your buck, I suggest using it in a few different applications. For breakfast on-the-go, there’s some great Pumpkin Spice Walnut Muffins. But, if you’re in a brunch type of mood, these Pumpkin Spice Waffles with Walnut Glaze will hit the spot. If you want to make your dinner just that much tastier, try Roasted Brussels Sprouts with a Warm Walnut Dressing!
It’s. Just. Good.

Ninjagoatnutrition – fatCoffee
fatCoffee is a delicious, easy way to make a keto-ready cup of butter coffee in 1 minute or less. Made with 100% grass-fed butter, organic coconut oil, MCT oil and powdered goat’s milk, fatCoffee provides clean, steady energy for hours at a time. Mix with coffee or tea for a delicious, fulfilling treat anytime, anywhere.
They work with a local farm which raises their cows on a 100% grass diet – no grains, ever. Their milk is churned into the only 100% grass-fed butter commercially available, anywhere. Their packets of fatCoffee need no refrigeration, are travel-ready, and can be taken just about anywhere. Just add 8 oz. of hot coffee or tea (or any liquid of your choice), and one packet of fatCoffee to a tightly-sealable thermos or water bottle and shake for 30 seconds. You can also mix in a blender for a delicious, highly-satisfying cup of butter coffee.
Breakfast is one of the most popular meals to want on the go. With fatCoffee, you can pretty much grab a packet, pour it into your thermos, and shake it to mix. It’s a great way to get a fast meal that’s nutritionally sound. Make sure that you keep a pack or two in your car, though! If you ever forget a drink to mix it into, just tear the package open and squeeze into your mouth. Seriously – it tastes like unsweetened coconut icing and it’s really tasty just on its own!
If coffee isn’t your thing, don’t worry. You can make a super simple 5 minute Raspberry Smoothie. Or, if you’re in the mood for something fall flavored in the evening, a Warm Pumpkin Spice Drink will do the trick!
You can grab your packets of fatCoffee on their website at: https://www.ninjagoatnutrition.com/

Two Snooty Chefs – Southwest Sedona
Their spice blends are created by chefs, packed with great taste and use only premium herbs and spices. They make small batch spice blends to order to ensure their quality and taste.
Now that fall is here, everyone wants to make hearty meals with their oven. That’s exactly what I had in mind with this spice blend – though it is a very encompassing spice that can be used on just about anything. From Southwest Style Casseroles to roasted vegetables to frittata bakes, this will add a depth of flavor and kick of spice to all of your meals. It has a perfect amount of spice to keep a warm mouth in cooler weather.
I had a lot of fun trying this spice out. It’s got a great flavor with just the right amount of lime in there for a subtle twist on regular meals. If you want to create a great meal that involves two ingredients from the box, try out the Stuffed Pork Chops paired with the Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Walnut Dressing. A seriously great meal!

LB Jerky Co. – Gramps’ Original
The Long Beach Jerky Co. was founded by Alex Naticchioni and Richie Beckman in July 2013, but the roots of the venture go back 30+ years. A bit of history: Their grandfather “Gramps” (Albert Naticchioni Sr) perfected his recipe of beef jerky and made it once a year for family to enjoy. And enjoy they did. Every Christmas for as long as Alex can remember, they had bags of beef jerky in their Christmas stockings.
As he got older, he helped Gramps with the meat slicing, the preparation and the cooking. Wanting to continue the Christmas tradition, he began making his own beef jerky and teamed up with Richie in January 2013 in their small apartment kitchen in Long Beach CA to try to duplicate the great taste he remembered. The weekend event of jerky making and beer drinking turned into a business venture virtually overnight. After several trial runs of the original recipe, they started exploring other recipes and experimenting in the beef jerky world. Friends and family loved the taste. Could they sell it? Would others buy it? They explored, tasted, researched and ate more beef jerky than you could imagine and now have 3 recipes … All USDA approved and packaged!
Long Beach Jerky Co. was born. Holding true to Gramps’ style, they use only brisket and put emphasis on the importance of the quality meat they use. They stay true to the old fashioned, thick cut style, but one that won’t rip your teeth out. They use choice ingredients in the making of their product and feel that simple is better. Following in Gramps’ footsteps, this one time holiday tradition has turned into a local favorite and one that is meant to be shared by all. “Here’s to you, Gramps.”
There’s not too much to say about this jerky except for the fact that it’s absolutely delicious. It’s a bit meatier than other jerky and has a great mouthfeel. It has somewhat of a crunch on the meat that slowly melts into a great texture and extreme flavorful juiciness upon chewing. It’s been one of my favorite jerkies I’ve tried so far – not too dry, not too damp, and absolutely soaked with flavor.

VitaPerk – Original Coffee Vitamins
VitaPerk is a company that seeks to improve two important areas of life: coffee and your health. By combining vitamins and minerals important for daily health with the wide appeal of one of the world’s most popular beverages, VitaPerk provides a way for people to increase the healthfulness of a daily routine.
With the thousands of people that I’ve helped become successful with keto, the biggest mistake I see is not worrying about vitamins or minerals. Doing so can cause lethargy, headaches, and other small problems that aren’t something you want to run into. If you’re having trouble remembering to take a multivitamin, or just want a really quick way to get everything down in a delicious drink – VitaPerk can help you out!
If you’re not a fan of coffee – don’t worry. Simply pour this into your water bottle, tea, or other favorite drink and shake it up. It’s that simple.They have tons of flavors, too.
