Keto Fajitas, anyone? So many ways to serve this simple dish, it can satisfy many individual tastes. And for the family that is not all keto, or has some low-carbers on board, a good high-fiber tortilla can add variety while you stay keto and skip it all together!

Step One: Slice one pound of chicken breast or steak into strips
Step Two: Marinate meat in bowl with:
1 T soy sauce SUBSTITUTE (coconut aminos)

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.
