Fire and Ice Pickles

Fire and Ice Pickles

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 ...

5 Minute Keto Pesto

5 Minute Keto Pesto

Typically pesto is a very simple recipe of basil, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese, garlic, and olive oil. Over the years people have added more and more ingredients to this classic recipe in order to adapt to tastes and preferences.  My personal addition is the tomato paste. I felt like the original version of this recipe was slightly bitter with the basil and pine nuts competing for top flavor.  A touch of tomato paste adds some acidity, sweetness, and cuts back on the bitterness. On keto, ...

5 Minute Keto Raspberry Vinaigrette

5 Minute Keto Raspberry Vinaigrette

We went out for lunch recently and had a salad that came with a raspberry vinaigrette. Of course knowing it would be laden with sugar, I made sure I got it on the side to confirm my suspicions. When the salad came to the table, I dipped my finger in the dressing to give it a taste - and not surprisingly found it ridiculously sweet. The flavor, though, was amazing. Once we got home, we knew exactly what we needed to do. Recreate this vinaigrette without the carbs and sugar - so we could ...

Low Carb Blackberry Chipotle Jam

Low Carb Blackberry Chipotle Jam

When it comes to keto, jam definitely isn't the first thing that pops into your head. But, making some new sweet sauces can definitely be within your grasp. To top it all off, you can add plenty of fats to really bring the macros up to par. We use MCT Oil here because of the liquid properties that it has. When you store the jam in the fridge, it will continue to stay as a sauce and not harden up (as it would if you used coconut oil). These's two main flavor components that I'd describe ...

Keto 5 Minute Caesar Dressing

Keto 5 Minute Caesar Dressing

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 ...

Homemade Sambal

Homemade Sambal

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 but also 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 ...

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

It's that time of year when every recipe seems to have hints of pumpkin or squash in them. Well, I'm going to be no different and going to be posting quite a large array of pumpkin based recipes for fall season! While I do love pumpkin, I try to use as little as possible for the carb counts to stay low. To keep the flavors of fall bursting through whatever I make, I tend to accent a lot of my recipes with this homemade pumpkin pie spice - the perfect combination of flavors to really keep your ...

Roasted Garlic Chipotle Aioli

Roasted Garlic Chipotle Aioli

Mayonnaise is well known among people on a ketogenic diet, but aioli seems to sit in a corner and not get too much attention and love. Well, there's a really easy explanation for this - they're pretty much the same thing. Aioli is...well, mayonnaise with garlic. Easy enough, right? This term was cultivated in the French region of Provence. Normally the garlic of aioli is crushed using your hands or a mortar and pestle, so the flavors of the garlic can come out into the sauce. But, if you see ...

Bacon and Roasted Garlic Spinach Dip

Bacon and Roasted Garlic Spinach Dip

Over the years, traditional spinach dip from the store has gotten a bit bland. It all tastes like the same stuff - cream cheese and some spices put together and poured out into the thousands of plastic containers that you see on the shelf. This? Nothing of the sort. It's packed full of flavors and bursting with a different texture in every single bite. Paired with chia crackers or pork rinds, nobody that's eating this will even have a clue they're eating keto - it's that good! Whether you're ...

Bacon and Roasted Garlic Guacamole

Bacon and Roasted Garlic Guacamole

Guacamole is fantastic, and so easy to make. On a ketogeic diet, you really need to get plenty of fats into your days worth of food - so what about piling some guacamole on top of your favorite lunch meat and rolling it up into bite sized pieces of deliciousness? What about grabbing the bag of pork rinds and using the guac as a dip? These are all fantastic ideas - and I'm sure you can come up with some other awesome ways to eat this stuff, because it goes down easy. I was talking to a ...
