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. …

Fried Brussels Sprouts

These shaved fried Brussels Sprouts are soooo crispy and delicious! Getting these just right was a labor of love… I mean that. We LOVE eating Brussels Sprouts!! The Secrets of Crunchy Fried Brussels Sprouts After much trial & error, we discovered that when using a home fryer, having the brussel sprouts warmed and NOT chilled made a big difference in the finished result. In commercial fryers, this likely isn’t a problem. But, in home fryers we found the oil temp dropped considerably when using still chilled sprouts. Another tip is to make sure your sprouts are thoroughly dry. We washed …

For those of us on a keto diet, let’s just totally avoid that junk! Instead, choose fresh crab and if you buy canned make sure you read the ingredients because sugar can be hiding in there! This …

Keto Salami Roll Ups

These keto salami roll ups are easy to make and soooo tasty! They are the perfect keto appetizer recipe for any party. A football game, a holiday appetizer…or just any excuse to whip these up. I should have called these “disappearing keto salami roll ups” because they don’t last long around our home or at any party we take them to. To make things easier on yourself, soften your cream cheese either by leaving it out on the counter for a few hours or warming it in the microwave. This makes it much more spreadable and easy to work with. Your New …

Keto Cheesesticks

There’s just something about cheeseticks that are fresh, hot and gooey that are oh…so…satisfying. Am I right? Fortunately, on a keto diet, low carb cheese is allowed! While looking through the artisian cheese section of our local grocer (Hy-Vee), I came across this stuff called Bread Cheese. Curious… I bought it and took it home and followed the package instructions on cooking it. Actually… my husband was so excited that he kind of took over in the middle of that first batch. As it came out of the pan, he had zero patience on tasting it. Let me tell you, …
