Keto Whipped Cream

Keto Whipped Cream

Whipped cream is a surprisingly satisfying guilty pleasure, but it doesn’t have to come with the guilt. Unfortunately, most of the recipes and canned products contain enough added sugar to slow your keto progress. Though these sugar-filled options make it seem like all whipped cream is unhealthy, this couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, by just whisking together three ingredients, you can make your own fluffy, airy, and flavorful whipped cream with a fraction of the carbs. This ...

Roasted Cajun Cauliflower Steaks

Roasted Cajun Cauliflower Steaks

This cauliflower steak recipe is so great because it’s not cauliflower pretending to be rice, pizza crust or even mashed potatoes, but just being a deliciously roasted and seasoned version of itself! These cauliflower “steaks” are obviously not steaks at all, but rather large slices of whole cauliflower that are seasoned and roasted to perfection. The best part about roasting cauliflower in “steak” form is that the flat sides get a little crisp while the center is tender. The trick to ...

Keto Cheesy Bacon Bread

Keto Cheesy Bacon Bread

The orange crust gives you the first clue as to how delicious this bread is. Tucked inside this almond-flour based loaf is plenty of crispy bacon and cheddar cheese. This keto bread makes the perfect side for our Mississippi Pot Roast recipe or a simple breakfast with a healthy smear of softened butter. Make sure you heed the warning about slicing the bread while it’s hot. Like many keto goods, this one’s fragile until completely cooled. If you try to slice it early, then you may end up ...

They’re worth making just as a side but could also be the base for an impeccable biscuit and gravy meal.

Sliced Keto Sandwich Bread

Sliced Keto Sandwich Bread

This is a truly yeast-risen keto bread.  It's as close to the real thing as you're gonna get.  So yes, you will notice this recipe uses a little real maple syrup.  Keto purists may struggle with this one, but the sugar is needed so that the yeast has something to eat.  It gets eaten up, so you don't have to worry about added sugar in the recipe. Like all keto baked goods, make sure you let the bread cool completely before attempting to slice it.  If you slice it too early you may run into ...

Spinach and Cheese Bites

Spinach and Cheese Bites

These wonderful appetizer bites bind spinach together with cheese, eggs, and the secret ingredient - nutritional yeast! The nutritional yeast makes these spinach and cheese bites taste meaty, if not extra cheesy. This is an easy recipe that's perfect for serving at a gathering, especially with a nice high-fat dip like the Spicy Sausage Cheese Dip or the Cheesy Cauliflower Onion Dip. This shocked me a bit but - kids seem to like this recipe too! One said that he hates spinach, but he loved ...

Spicy Avocado Salad

Spicy Avocado Salad

This salad is an excellent side dish for summer events like BBQ’s and picnics or lazy summer dinners with family and friends. You can also prepare it for work lunches and potlucks. The hot sauce gives the salad a nice kick, but you can omit it from the recipe if it’s not your thing. This easy salad has several opportunities for substitution; you can swap out the cilantro for dill or cherry tomatoes. For the dressing, you can use lemon juice instead of lime. Yields 4 servings of Spicy ...

Simple Radish Salad

Simple Radish Salad

This recipe is an incredibly simple salad that requires no cooking at all! The radish slices provide a nice crunch that goes well with the garlic Parmesan dressing! I used an arugula mix for the lettuce, but you can use any kind of lettuce you’d like. I also used Dijon mustard for the dressing, but if this is something you don’t have, regular mustard will do the trick. I would highly recommend buying a brick or triangle of Parmesan cheese to grate it yourself if possible. Many ...

Simple Asian Cucumber Salad

Simple Asian Cucumber Salad

A refreshing salad with a hint of tang! This Asian cucumber salad is great for get-togethers, work potlucks, or as a small salad with lunch or dinner. Now, this recipe only makes one serving, but cooking for two? Just double the ingredients! I used a gluten-free soy sauce for the dressing, but alternatively, you could use coconut aminos. You could also add in some extra ingredients, like avocado and onions but be careful because that will bring the carb count higher! Yields 1 servings ...
