Keto Asian Coleslaw

This crisp, lightly sweet keto asian coleslaw is a great addition to your weekly meal plan. I created this recipe after we went out to dinner and I saw an Asian inspired coleslaw as a side on the menu. Intrigued, I took a bite of my friend’s side (she ordered it) and found the taste to be amazing. I knew I had to replicate it in my keto kitchen. This recipe has a net carb count of 3 net carbs per serving which comes from the cabbage & red pepper. By omitting the red pepper you can reduce the carb …

Keto Portabella Pizzas

Is there anything better than cheesy, full flavored pizza that keeps you on your keto diet? We think not. These keto portabella pizzas do the trick and take only 25 minutes from start to finish! Here’s how this idea came around. I love, love, love marinated and grilled portabella mushrooms. My husband… not so much. But, he would eat just a little bit because he knows mushrooms are so good for him. So, I thought… what if I use portabella mushroom as a pizza CRUST? Because of the melty cheese, I knew grilling wasn’t the best option. I mean, who …

Easy Low Carb Pizza Sauce

I’ve developed a few low carb pizza recipes throughout the years, but I hadn’t yet created an easy and delicious tomato based low carb pizza sauce to go along with it. For my birthday, I got an Aerogarden…and I’ve been growing a few different types of fresh basil. This low carb recipe was inspired because I was looking for a way to use up the fresh basil I had just harvested. When on a ketogenic diet and keeping carbohydrates low, remember that tomatoes are inherently high in natural sugars. So, any tomato based pizza sauce should be used in moderation. …

Sugar Free Maple Bourbon Glaze

I originally created this Sugar Free Maple-Bourbon Glaze for Easter Ham. The bourbon in the glaze balances the flavors of the peppery brown mustard and the sweet sugar substitutes, making it delightful on a salmon filet, a meaty chicken thigh or barbecued into smoked turkey legs. Glaze Your Meats One benefit of using a sugar substitute is that they don’t burn. You can apply your sugar-free glaze liberally throughout the cooking process without the fear of it burning. I have a number of other ideas for this glaze, including smothered chicken thighs in the Instant Pot. I’ll update this post …

These Keto Mini Key Lime Cheesecakes are so easy to make. Single-serve cheesecake are perfect for parties or if you just want a quick bite.

My favorite dessert on this earth is cheesecake. Mix some coconut in there and I’m in heaven. When I started the YouTube channel, Keto Coconut Cheesecake was already being developed.

Sugar Free Maple Bourbon Glazed Ham

I wanted to create a sugar free glazed ham that tasted just like the real thing so we could have a Keto Easter Dinner. I searched the internet for sugar free glaze recipes and came up with very few. Most of them used ingredients I personally avoid having learned how toxic they are to me personally. Next, I pulled out family recipes and started creating this glaze that worked perfectly. In the sugar free glaze recipe I use a mixture of two different sweeteners to provide a full flavor. If you need to pick just one sweetener, I recommend Bocha …
