I haven’t blogged in months, people, because lookie! I got licensed and insured and am officially in business to get a 2 net carb pizza crust…or flatbread…or wrap…into the market. It’s currently only available to people in Kansas City, as I am just now officially underway, but the goal is to get it picked up nationally and into stores…there are many steps to get there, but for now, I am so excited to get this Keto pizza crust out there for people who don’t have time to melt the cheese and make the mess at home. For updates, please like the Fattyhead Facebook Page. Cheers!
Keto and low carbers often lament the loss of crunch in their altered eating choices. Socially, we like a little chip and dip action for game day, office parties, holiday gatherings, and rainy Sunday afternoons. A variation on the fathead dough so popular among Keto Warriors is the answer! Specifically, Laura’s KetoKrust concoction…these sesame garlic fathead crackers I just made! And low carb dips offer a healthy array of options, from guacamole dip to salsa to cream cheese and fondue dips.
Rice and bread and pasta! Those new to Keto long for substitutes for their favorite starch. Hemp hearts make a fantastic rice substitute! Versatile enough to add bulk to many dishes. The keto recipe below is a cooked rice-substitute dish, but cooking hemp hearts is not required. They can be added raw to any dish, sprinkled on salad even. Get creative.
Hemp Heart Rice Substitute Recipe
Sauté 1/2 small onion in 1T Kerrygold butter. Add 6T hemp hearts, 1/2 cup chicken stock, 4 oz cut chicken breast and cover for about 5 minutes. Then add 1 cup chopped spinach. I also threw in a few pine nuts. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Makes 2 servings.
