Keto Teriyaki Chicken

April 16, 2019

There are lots of recipes out there they are very keto adaptive. Teriyaki chicken is one of those! The taste of this was pretty identical to that of its sucrose substitute. I'm definitely adding it to my keto dinner rotation. I replaced my usual rice side with broccoli and cauliflower and it was quite satisfying.

Shredded Chicken Keto Burritos with Joseph's Lavash Bread

April 15, 2019

Yesterday I talked about my favorite low carb sliced bread. Today I'm going to talk about my favorite low carb wrap bread. There are a few out there. And I'll write posts about them later but I just wanted to mention my FAVORITE one today. It's Joseph's Flax Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Lavash Bread. Get it on Amazon here. I'm able to find these easily at most grocery stores even Walmart. It's only 5g net carbs per serving.

Keto BLTs with Low Carb Sola Sweet Bread

April 14, 2019

Who says you can't have your bread and eat it too?

Normally on keto or any low carb diet one would have to deprive themselves of those classic sandwich delights. Grilled cheese, BLTs, peanut butter sandwiches, lunch meat sandwiches....the list goes on. In today's modern keto market you now have choices! I made these classic BLTs last night using my favorite low carb bread: Sola Sweet Bread. And it tastes no different than it's high carb version. And believe me, I'm picky about that.

Keto and Gluten Free Swedish Meatballs

April 13, 2019

These are my new dinner favorite. Keto Swedish meatballs. The lowest carb meatballs that I can find at the store have 1g net carbs per meatball which can really add up when you're eating meatballs. These meatballs are .68g per meatball.

Keto Butter Biscuits

April 11, 2019

Every morning I like to have a real breakfast. Unfortunately for me, I hate eggs and keto relies HEAVILY on eggs. I've tried to like them so many times. It's just not happening and it's a shame I realize because they're so good for energy. On keto, most of my usual breakfast foods are out- cinnamon toast, bagels, cake, brownies;-P (no lie). But I can have as much meat as I want. Bacon is great and I love it but it's a bit messy and time consuming for breakfast. Sausage patties are good because I can just throw them in the pan and they brown easily in 10 minutes. Plus, they're not as expensive as bacon and Charlie likes them so I can make one for him as well. But plain 'ol sausage patties for breakfast are a little threadbare. So I'll make Carbquik biscuits and pair it with my morning sausage and I'm good! You can cut a biscuit in half and have a sausage biscuit! Only 1g net carb per biscuit!

Keto Chocolate Cocoa Dusted Truffles

April 10, 2019

Today I made these keto chocolate cocoa dusted truffles. Starting to see a pattern here;-P I have a bit of a sweet tooth. Recipe via Green and Keto. These end up being 1.5g net carbs per ball. I find 1 or 2 balls to be more than enough to satisfy me in one sitting. They're pretty rich.

Keto Low Carb Peanut Butter Bars

April 9, 2019

I made this this morning and let it chill while making the some keto soup for lunch. It's SO good. Almond Butter Fudge Bars! I used Maranatha no sugar no salt Peanut Butter instead of almond butter. For the chips I used Lily's. Only $5.66 here. This made a great post-lunch snack treat.

Sugar Free "Keto" Pixie Sticks

March 5, 2019

I've been doing the keto diet for two months now. There are so MANY things I can discuss about THAT. For now I want to just "sprinkle" this fun goodie. Keto Pixie Sticks! Now, I don't want to get in a debate about using artificial sweeteners for keto purposes. I understand that some people think it totally hinders their progress while others use it in order not to fall into bad sugar habits. I like to think I fall into the latter. I've also heard a lot of people say that eating artificial sweeteners keeps them craving sweets and I DO think that there is something to that.
That being said, I've eaten these and it has not kicked me out of ketosis. Maybe you're different. I've heard so many different things from people who've had totally different experiences than me doing this. At the very least this is a much healthier alternative to processed sugar pixie sticks. I used real freeze dried strawberry powder. You can use any kind of fruit powder though! Mango, lime, lemon, apple, grape, raspberry, blueberry, etc. Though, those will have varying amount of carbs. The strawberry powder has very few net carbs. Only 4 per TABLESPOON! Using the measurements in my recipe below that's only 1.11g of carbs per stick. PS. These DO have a small amount of natural sugar from the strawberry powder but it is free of processed sugar.
