Low Carb Chia Seed Crackers

Low Carb Chia Seed Crackers

Lately I've been craving something crunchy...a small snack that can give a chance to the normally slightly gooey and soft texture you get with keto. I've done cheese chips, and I've gotten a little tired of them. I've done flax chips, which are filled with phytoestrogens and getting a bad rep. So what's left? I figured I could make something out of chia seeds, since I had done similarly with tortillas - and boy was I right. These chia seed crackers are absolutely amazing. Granted they aren't ...

Goat Cheese Tomato Tarts

Goat Cheese Tomato Tarts

When company is coming over and I want to keep all of the recipes I prepare ketogenic, I try to go above and beyond to make things that I normally wouldn't. I like to make things that impress people so that they don't have the wrong idea about this diet. Many people who know me always think that my diet is extremely restrictive, but this is my moment where I show them I can make anything they could - and probably even better. Putting that extra bit of work in to impress people not only helps ...

Cheesy Bacon Bombs

Cheesy Bacon Bombs

I'd like to take a second to tell everyone about the new forums that I've just opened! I decided that this would be a much better outlet for discussion than a Facebook group because of the organization quality of information, and the more communal feel. If you'd like to take the time to join us, partake in discussions about everything keto, and voice your successes - feel free to join us on the Ruled.me Forums! Anyway, back to the food. These little morsels are just divine. It's like biting ...

Pecan Butter Chia Seed Blondies

Pecan Butter Chia Seed Blondies

A little delicious treat is something that everyone on a ketogenic diet will crave. But, when it comes to the carb counts and fat ratios, we need to make sure everything is in check before we start baking. These blondie squares are 88% calories from fat - just about good enough to be considered a fat bomb. As many of you know, I try to stay clear of the usual "fat bomb" consisting of frozen coconut oil and cocoa powder. You can check out my other "twists" on fat bombs by trying out a chia seed ...

Coconut Cream Yogurt

Coconut Cream Yogurt

Making your own yogurt might seem like a weird idea at first, but it's pretty simple and it's almost all hands off. We're going to culture the coconut milk in the oven using the light of the oven and the contents of probiotic capsules. You want your coconut milk to culture in the 110F - 115F range. We'll achieve this by leaving just the light of the oven on and keeping the door completely closed. Don't open it during the culture period! You may also want to invest in an oven thermometer so you ...

Almond Butter Chia Squares

Almond Butter Chia Squares

Are you getting tired of the oily frozen fat bombs that you've been making and constantly seeing around the internet? Well, I sure am. So I wanted to set out to give some new textures, flavors, and ways to get your fats in. These are a little more carby and less fatty than the pure oil fat bombs, but they taste SO much better that it's worth giving them a try. They come out to 83% fats, 5% carbs, and 8% protein which is still highly ketogenic in itself. Plus...they taste ah-may-zing. ...

Cumin Sesame Lemon Mug Cake

Cumin Sesame Lemon Mug Cake

Cumin is one of my all-time favorite spices to use with meat, but without the meat portion it seems weird to use. I had to come up with something that could accent the earthy qualities needed for cumin, while still playing a role in the recipe. Sesame seeds definitely do the trick! If you missed out on the last savory mug cakes, check them out: Bacon, Cheddar & Chive Green Chile Cheddar Mug Cake Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Mug Cake To brighten the whole dish up, we add a ...

Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Mug Cake

Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Mug Cake

Fresh, delicious, and unique. These are the 3 words I'd use to describe this mug cake. Tomato is a fantastic thing that can bring mositure, taste, and a unique sense of flavor to a dish. If you missed out on the last mug cakes, check them out: Of course you don't have to serve this with a slice of tomato, but it does really seal the deal when you're finished. A nice crisp small piece of tomato to get that "I need something fresh" out of your mind. This mug cake is extremely ...

Green Chile Cheddar Mug Cake

Green Chile Cheddar Mug Cake

In a perfect world we could just make all of our meals in a mug, take 5 minutes out of our day for the food we consume, and be on our merry way to more important things. Though, mug cakes won't always get that craving for meat out of your head, they are still an awesome meal replacement for anyone who's in a rush. If you missed out on the last mug cake, it was a good one so make sure to check it out. Bacon, Cheddar & Chive - yep, I did that. You can easily pre-pack the ingredients ...
