My Experience “Breaking Keto”

I took my first 3-week break from my strict Low Carb/Ketogenic regimen in nearly 2 years. I’m going to be real with you– I’m not going to “stevia-coat it”. Below you can read how I compare my expectations vs my reality and how these 3 weeks affected me (during and after). I started my ‘Ketogenic Journey’…

Keto Creamy Cucumber Salad

Cucumber Salad is my “go-to” summer recipe; one that I bring to cookouts, parties and barbecue’s. It’s something that’s not the usual coleslaw, potato salad, or macaroni salad. Cucumber salad is simple and enjoyed by everyone because it’s refreshing and not a heavy side (so you can NOM on more food!). With all that being…

Keto Skillet Pizza

This is the best keto pizza I’ve ever made. (& I’ve made a lot of keto pizza). It’s a quick, simple recipe, and totally a picky-eater approved choice. I played around with my original Keto Pizza recipe (a good alternative if you don’t have a cast iron skillet to use) and found this to be a real…

Fried Halloumi Cheese Sticks

Fried Halloumi Cheese is a must-try. I no longer appreciate using alternative flours to mimic the texture of mozzarella sticks, or anything else that consists of bread for that matter. After some time on a low-carb diet, you get used to not thinking about bread! When I cook this I think about Dane Cook’s skit,…

Keto Pizza

If you’re not new to Keto, this is of no surprise to you. Keto-friendly pizza dough is so popular among the community. Who can live without pizza? I can’t! I’ve tried many different types of keto-fied pizza crusts, and nothing tastes quite as good as this one.

Bacon-wrapped Asparagus

This is the most-requested side dish at my house. It’s very easy to make and makes your side vegetable a little more appetizing, because bacon. I love bacon, and I love asparagus. Nothing makes me happier than to wrap my marinated asparagus in bacon! I also tried these with wrapping an individual spear with an…

Pizza Rolls

Cut your pizza cravings in 10 minutes with this quick recipe! I use this when I don’t have enough ingredients or time to make my favorite Keto Pizza. I don’t make these too often, because to be quite honest there isn’t much nutritional value in these other than dairy. However, they’re great party snacks, or…
