Catalina Style Dressing

Catalina Style Dressing

I love being able to whip up a keto salad dressing from scratch with my emulsion blender! Even if I don't have my homemade ketchup on hand for this recipe, it only takes a few minutes more to make it first.

It has a tangy sweet taste that is both subtle and rich. It goes well with just about any kind of salad ...

Basics to Curing Bacon

Basics to Curing Bacon

Written by kjudd on Reddit. He has given me permission to post this here. Right, so I've read the easiest thing to try when dipping your feet into charcuterie was bacon. Let's just say that affordable bacon here is, well…crap. I’m talking about main supermarket branded stuff here, none of the higher quality artisan bacon. I underlined affordable because, I, like most of you eat this stuff a lot. So, I figured if I can make a higher quality bacon at home for a similar price, why not? ...

Calorie Counting on the Ketogenic Diet

Using the Fat Fasting Technique

The fat fast is a technique brought by Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution - used by people who are metabolically resistant and have trouble with their induction.

Toasted Garlic Cauliflower Wrap

Toasted Garlic Cauliflower Wrap

I recently started to get annoyed with the amount of carbs that are in wraps. I just don't want to be stuffing an extra 8-12 carbs in my diet when it can be avoided, so I started experimenting. Through some horrible failures, I found a good recipe over at EmpoweredSustenance. She found that using more egg in the mixture would allow it to hold together better when baking it. Bingo! Throw some spices and herbs in there, some gyro meat, and tzatziki sauce - and you have yourself a ...
