Low Carb Macadamia Nut Brownies

Low Carb Macadamia Nut Brownies

I've been making so many sweets lately that I had to take a bit of a break and allow the leftovers to be eaten before making more. Being on a keto diet, it's hard for me to keep eating sweets, even if they are low carb, because I find my cravings start to come back after I eat them. Low and behold, everything is gone and I wanted to make something I haven't done in a while. I settled on brownies because I haven't really gotten around to making a cake, and I have only been making cookies ...

Keto Bites: Asian Pork & Shrimp

Keto Bites: Asian Pork & Shrimp

I've always liked the idea of eating food with my hands. Being able to pick something up and eat it without mess is a luxury most of us overlook. It's easy, convenient, and can be mobile when needed. I'd imagine pretty much anybody could make these. They're really simple and I got most of the prep out of the way hours ahead of time. The hardest thing here is cutting everything up, and that's one of the easiest things to do! While it is a bit time consuming to cut things, it's well worth the ...

Best Basic Low Carb Chocolate

Best Basic Low Carb Chocolate

I'm sure this recipe is out there in cyberspace somewhere, but I never found it. I stumbled upon it by trial and error and am I ever happy I did! This is THE best chocolate I've had since I first started a keto way of life. The applications are endless and I look forward to all the wonderful things I can make with this stuff. I know it's a little high on the carb end (if you're not counting fiber), but for holidays, birthdays, or special occasions, it is perfect. Also, when using it in ...

White Chocolate Bark With A Twist

White Chocolate Bark With A Twist

I've never been a big fan of the flavor of coconut (I know, I know), so fat bombs have never held much appeal to me. Then I discovered that coconut butter (also called coconut cream) has less of that coconut taste. To make things even better, I discovered cacao butter. Cacao butter is the fat extracted from the cacao been. It smells like chocolate, but is an off white color. As soon as I started working with it, I realized this would be my ticket to making white chocolate. Because of the ...

Cheddar and Bacon BBQ Meatballs

Cheddar and Bacon BBQ Meatballs

These are some of the best meatballs I've ever had, keto or not. They're juicy, and they're full of cheese and bacon. What's not to like here? You really have a choice of where to go with this recipe. You don't have to use the BBQ sauce, but it pairs up extremely well with this recipe. You can add salsa and go for a Southwestern vibe, or add some homemade alfredo sauce and go for a very rich dish. I like my BBQ sauce to be spicy and tangy, so if you like more of a subtle BBQ sauce you ...

Keto Recipe: Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Keto Recipe: Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Call it a fat bomb if you will, but I'll call it my temptation atomic bomb. Chocolatey, peanut-buttery, rich, and purely delicious. This is the keto ice cream that I always make when I am having a craving for something sweet. All that fat-filled, creamy richness will fill you up in no time and have your sweet tooth put to sleep in even less. We're going to use cottage cheese to obtain the creaminess that ice cream is known for, but with only a fraction of the carbs. Cottage cheese!? THAT ...

The Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet: Optimal Health and Weight Loss

The Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet: Optimal Health and Weight Loss

The Mediterranean diet is widely recognized as being one of the best diets for weight loss and overall health. When compared to a typical western diet filled with processed foods, this plant-based diet is a safe, effective, and reliable bet. However, conservative approaches typically yield moderate results. In contrast, radically unconventional diets have a greater potential to make significant changes — changes that may come with an increased health risk for some. The keto diet is the ...

Keto Sansrival

Keto Sansrival

Sansrival is a Filipino classic - crispy, chewy, meringue layered with French buttercream and cashew nuts. Translates to, “without rival.” Aptly so, as this is hands down a crowd favorite. The original recipe calls for a dacquoise, a meringue made with nuts that when cooked long and slow yields a crispy wafer. The keto version, however, will not have the same texture. Instead it’s more sponge-y. Sugar’s hygroscopic, or moisture absorbing, nature lends to the crunch that sweeteners ...
