Turkey Alfredo on Fathead Flatbread

Keto for me, since I never really cooked before, is about experimentation and winging it. A couple nights ago I tried to make bone broth by buying a small turkey and cooking the heck out of it in a multi-puprose rice cooker. Apple cider vinegar should help to break down the bones, but I had to get to the bones first. So I pulled out all the cooked meat and set aside, and continued to cook the bones for about 12 more hours.

I also had planned to try keto lasagna with fathead dough noodles but abandoned that idea for the time being. So here I am with a giant pile of turkey, a nicely browned fathead flatbread, and broth. One of my go to super easy meals is chicken alfredo sans pasta, so I made the sauce, stirred in the turkey and poured a bit of broth into it, added fresh spinach after turning off the heat, and loaded it onto the flatbread that had been cooked the night before.  The final touch was colby cheese and basil, popped in the oven long enough to melt the cheese.

Easy, fast (when you subtract the time it took to make the broth) and pretty darn delicious. So take a chance. Experiment. Have fun. Make your food pretty. Treat yourself right. Keto on, Warriors!

The book I used to get started (I am still a newbie!) is thorough and well-researched, one of the top selling keto books, if you’d like to check it out.

Full Fat Chicken Alfredo!

Love alfredo sauce but know that pasta is not keto friendly? I use a lot of mushrooms instead of pasta because they can bulk up the sauce like a shell noodle would. I also love using more than the broccoli floret. The stems, steamed first, can offer that bulk when you ditch the pasta.

Now if you’d like to play around with some keto bread, try the fathead dough for pizza. I’ve made keto crackers from it as well. And look at all that delicious, satiating, brain-satisfying fat! Full fat cream cheese, romano, kerrygold butter, whipping cream!

If you’re into intermittent fasting, this is a fantastic full-fat meal that will keep you satiated for hours. Try eating around 7pm and see if you can wait till noon the next day to eat. A cup of fatty or bulletproof coffee for breakfast is great for a pseudo fast, or a low-calorie fast, and fat is what your brain needs! Our bodies are built to use stored fat for energy. That’s what ketosis is. Did cavemen eat 4-6 small meals throughout the day? No! They ate in a short window of time, then fasted intermittently until they could hunt down the next woolly mammoth. And what did their bodies use for energy since they didn’t have a protein bar to snack on every couple hours? Stored fat!

In addition to the Kerrygold butter for the shrooms, I cooked the chicken in avocado oil…oh heck, watch the video. I explain it there. Bon appetit! Oh, and for dessert, try a keto shake! For a resource on paper, this is the Keto book I bought. Well researched, thorough and full color meal photos.
