It’s Like A Potato Chip!

If you miss potato chips, do I have a video for you! Crunchy keto crackers with a 5-minute prep time, made from cheese, sour cream and milled flaxseed. Amazing! Go for it. You can do this, Keto Warriors! If you’re new to keto, please poke around the blog. I am pretty much a newbie, so…

Keto Salad Dressing

Many store-bought salad dressings are made with canola oil or soybean oil, so even though you can find plenty that are low carb, finding one that uses Keto friendly oils is trickier. I don’t bother looking anymore. With olive oil and vinegar always in the pantry, I can make my own in a couple minutes….

New To Keto? Keep it Simple, Smartie!

Fear not! You can start keto in the simplest of ways. Look at the meal above. Fancy, eh? Not really. It’s chicken and sauce from a jar. Seriously. You need just a tad bit of knowledge about the macro goals, which means that about 70% of your calories should come from fat, about 25% from…

Excellent Keto Book

I have been doing this keto WOE (way of eating), with all the questions and conundrums, the missteps and masterpiece recipes, the victories and confusion and benefits and learning and experimenting for less than a year, and still consider myself a newbie. But I am convinced this is the way of eating for me. I…

One-Pan Dinner: Keto Sloppy Joes!

Flavors from India make these sloppy joes zing! This is an easy, fast keto meal with a real twist on traditional sloppy Joes. And it works for families with non keto eaters in the house. In the video, which is only a minute long, I misspoke when I said olive oil. I meant avocado oil….

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…

Comfort Food That Won’t Kill Me!

Why does my heart-shaped fathead dough pizza have dill pickle eyebrows? Great question! Because my comfort food has come a long way, baby. My Grandma Ruth always had two things ready for me when we visited. Sweet pickles and sausage sandwiches on white bread. God, I adored that woman. She knew how to love fiercely….

Calorie Restriction Does Not Work

Time to pay attention to What and When we eat, because long-term calorie restriction is actually slow starvation, and your body will fight you…to the death.
