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!

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 ...

Spinach Shamrock Latte

Spinach Shamrock Latte

Happy St. Patty's day everybody! I think I'll be staying pretty classic this time and make some Corned Beef and Cabbage tonight, but we'll see what happens to give it a twist. So, you rarely see me using avocado and there's a reason for it - I just don't like the stuff. The greens we're getting today is from spinach. Spinach is seriously one of my favorite vegetables. It's packed full of micronutrients and it takes on flavors of other things really well. You're probably thinking to yourself ...

Low Carb Taco Tartlets

Low Carb Taco Tartlets

So, you're having a party coming soon and you have no clue what to serve everyone? Well, that's the predicament I was in. I wanted something that was finger friendly, but showed I put some work into it at the same time. A little tartlet was exactly what I had in mind! The ground beef can be subbed out for pretty much any type of meat - I just have a bunch on hand that I need to use, so that's what went in. I think this would be fantastic with an Asian style ground pork also. If you've ...

Fried Queso Fresco

Fried Queso Fresco

These ooey gooey squares of goodness are one of the best ways to get a side in when you need a lot of fat. By itself, this cheese isn't the best - but it has the solubility to stand up to the high temperature required for frying. Get a nice layer of crisp on these bad boys and they're seriously good eats. They make for great snacks, or a great side item to a lean meal. Just be aware that they don't save great - they're best served hot. Yields 5 total servings The Preparation 1 pound ...

Peppermint Frost Breath Mints

Peppermint Frost Breath Mints

About xylitol: 1 cup of xylitol, a sugar alcohol, has 228g carbs, but as humans we don't have the enzymes to process any of the nutrients from xylitol, so it passes through our system. Studies show that blood sugars and ketone levels are not affected by this in humans, but it can cause digestive upset if you are sensitive to sugar alcohols. If you aren't sure how you will react to xylitol, use in moderation. I recommend trying one piece 2-3 times a day, preferably after eating. I have a ...
