Low Carb Root Beer

A low carb root beer recipe that lets you indulge a little AND stay faithful to your Ketogenic Diet! The secret behind this low carb root beer recipe is choosing a root beer extract that doesn’t contain added sugars. Some of my favorite flavoring extracts I’ve used in the past actually contain some form of sugar in the ingredients list. It’s so surprising ALL the places that sugar is hiding, isn’t it?? We’ve really got to become avid ingredient list readers 🙂 So, after some research, I’ve chosen to use Cook’s Root Beer Extract because it’s all-natural, gluten-free and has …

Keto Coffee Cake Muffins

These Keto Coffee Cake Muffins are so tasty that you won’t believe they are keto friendly. The swirl of cinnamon, sweetness of Bocha Sweet and hint of vanilla guarantee they’ll satisfy your tastebuds and help you stick to your ketogenic diet. Actually, my theory is, that if you can learn how to cook and bake keto friendly… that you’ll be much more likely to stick to the keto diet and achieve your health goals. When I first started the keto diet, I made recipe after recipe… completely frustrated by the bland and garbage-worthy results. Now, having grown up baking and …

Keto Walking Tacos

Keto Walking Tacos have been on our wish list…well…since we started keto. When we began planning our oldest daughters high school graduation party and decided on walking tacos as the “main course”, I knew I needed a creative solution for my clients, friends and family who eat keto and would be attending! Not all of them would be satisfied by a taco salad (the obvious option). A quick trip to the grocery store and a perusal of the ‘grain-free’ section left me empty handed. However, the pork rinds peaked my interest. If I could find individual bags of pork rinds, …

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 …
