Mock Keto Potato Salad

Potluck celebrations and picnics are in full swing and I was really craving a mustardy potato salad! Don’t like mustard? No worries, I’ll tell ya just how to adjust this recipe in the next section. I was pretty skeptical about using cauliflower in place of potatoes in this recipe. I found a few recipes that called for raw cauliflower and I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to love that. Here, I’ve steamed the cauliflower until fork tender and then spread it on a cookie sheet to cool. Next, I diced up the rest of the veggies and had those …

Keto Coleslaw Recipe

In the hot summer months, I just love the creamy, crunchy, tanginess of chilled coleslaw. Fortunately, making your own is very easy with the right ingredients and a little know-how. My secret ingredient in this recipe is a new super-food sweetener called Bocha Sweet. It’s a granulated sugar substitute made from the Kabocha Pumpkin. These super-food pumpkins have a high pentose content. It turns out that pentose is REALLY good for our body! Pentose can be metabolized as a pure source of cell energy. Even Better? Unlike other artificial and alternative sweeteners–pentose provides energy WITHOUT requiring insulin as a delivery …

Keto Jalapeno Poppers

74% fat~8% net carb~17% protein Tip: Broil at the end for a few minutes for crispier bacon on top! At first I was going to leave out this section because this recipe is so simple. Then, I realized that this recipe features a few kitchen items I wouldn’t want to be with out. First, the ceramic baking sheets we use to bake these. They make clean-up an absolute breeze. We use them constantly and replace them every few years as they tend to get scratched up from things like kids using pizza cutters right on the sheet!

Savory Keto Cloud Bread

67% fat ~ 4% net carb ~ 23% protein Soften your cream cheese so that it’s nice and squishy. You want it to mix in to the egg mixture easily. Hard cream cheese takes a long time to mix in and you’ll end up stirring a lot of the air out of the eggwhites which you don’t want to do! Avoid mixing your ingredients too much. This is why I strongly encourage you to warm your cream cheese so it’s at least lukewarm. You can substitute the Acacia Fiber with ground flax or ground psyllium husks (the powder). Both of …

Keto Bread with Yeast: Coconut Flour Keto Bread (Delicious!)

72% Fat 6% Carb 11% Protein When I set out to make the perfect keto bread, I had no idea what was in store for me. For 15 years, I had been baking breads using traditional flours. I started by searching the web “How to make keto bread”. I picked a few different “well-rated” keto bread recipes and started baking. Results from these recipes were very “wet” and had an “off” flavor. Many of them contained psyllium husk powder to which I grew a quick aversion to. I did not like the flavor that the psyllium husk gave to the …
