Weight Loss Talk + 2 Easy, Delicious Low Carb Dinner Ideas

Posted on January 23, 2018 By In Diet With disabled comments

Keto SnacksWe’re three weeks into the 2018 90-Day Low Carb Challenge already and it’s time to weigh-in again…

It’s never too late to join us by the way, so feel free to jump in now if you haven’t already. ?

You’ll find the Week Three Weigh In at that link in the Facebook Challenge Group, or you can comment here on this post if you’re not participating in our Facebook group.

Weight Loss Talk

Almost daily I see people get discouraged about the weight they’ve lost.

Wait… that doesn’t make any sense! ?

It’s true though. As an example I’ll get a message or a reply that says, “I’m up a pound this week” and when I respond I hear something back like, “I lost 10 pounds in the first two weeks.”

It’s easy to focus on the one or two pounds you gained, instead of the 20 you’ve lost, or lose sight of the awesome progress you’ve made.

You should know: It’s totally normal for the body to “hold” (or for your weight to even fluctuate slightly) after losing weight so fast in the first week or so. Your body has to adjust to the loss. It’s part of the normal weight loss trend, that’s all!;)

It’s #2 on this list of 4 Reasons You’re Not Losing Weight (or losing weight “fast enough”).

Weeks 2 and 3 of the Low Carb Challenge are difficult or frustrating for most people, because it’s a normal adjustment period. The key is not to do anything drastic or start changing everything up – but simply to keep doing what was obviously working so well for you in the first week or so. OR, if you HAVE changed anything, to go back to what was working great.:)

 

Low Carb Dinner Ideas

 

Two Easy, Delicious Low Carb Dinners & Simple Sides

As usual I’ll share what I’ve been eating lately, so you can see my low carb meals and MyFitnessPal logs for fresh ideas & examples.

In my last low carb food diary I was snowed in and tried out a variety of low carb recipes & ideas. There were a lot of cookies, waffles, candy & biscuits last week, lol – all low carb of course!

Speaking of cookies, if you read my last food diary the Peanut Butter Keto Kookie might have been out of stock if you clicked on those. Update: They’re back in stock, and a fresh batch is ready to ship out. ?

Here’s what I ate over the weekend, including two very easy (but delicious!) home cooked dinners with simple low carb vegetable sides…

My Low Carb Meals on Saturday

I had my favorite healthy low carb breakfast: 1/2 cup of pecan pieces, 1/4 cup of Daisy brand cottage cheese and 4 diced strawberries:

Lynn's Low Carb Cereal

That was actually a late breakfast, then I had an early dinner.

I found a great meat sale at the grocery store so I picked up a variety of meats – including Eye of Round Steak – which I had no idea how to cook. ?

I found this Braised Eye Round Steak recipe online and just modified it a bit. Or simplified it, actually.:)

Here are the ingredients I used:

Eye of Round Steak Recipe (How to make it tender!)

I melted 2 TBSP of butter in a non stick skillet and added minced garlic, then turned it up to medium high for a few minutes to sear the meat.

Eye of Round Steak made tender - Easy Low Carb Recipe

I made a strong serving of Smoky Beef Bone Broth (using 3 scoops instead of 2) and poured that over the Eye Round Steak, covered it and turned it down – then let that simmer for a full hour. With my fingers crossed.;)

Easy Low Carb Dinners

I had some frozen cauliflower, so I cooked that – then mashed it with an old fashioned hand masher. I added butter, salt, sour cream and a bit of shredded cheddar.

This was my first time making mashed cauliflower and it came out delicious! ?

Mashed Cauliflower - Easy Low Carb Sides

The Eye Round Steak came out delicious and tender too. ?

I was worried it would be tough, but simmering it for a full hour worked! It would probably do very well in the slow cooker the same way.

Which made me realize that the Keto Bone Broth would be MUCH better in my pot roast and other slow cooker recipes than packaged seasoning mixes.;)

I poured some of the broth over my mashed cauliflower too. It made a VERY easy meal that was serious comfort food and really good. I cleaned my plate… Yum!

Low Carb Meal Ideas

Later that night I had some peanut butter topped with sugar Chocolate Syrup for a quick snack/treat.

Simple Low Carb Treat - Peanut Butter and Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup

That peanut butter & chocolate bumped my carb count up to 24 net carbs for the day, but that’s not too much over my usual – and it was totally worth it.;)

My MyFitnessPal Diary for Saturday

MyFitnessPal Low Carb Food Diary with Net Carbs Column

How I Have MyFitnessPal Set Up with Net Carbs

 

My Low Carb Meals on Sunday

I was on the road Sunday morning so I grabbed 60 grams (2 servings) of pecan halves and made a “Coffee Keto Shake” using the Keto Shake Mix with hot coffee to take with me:

Low Carb on the Road - Keto Shake and Pecans

On the way back I decided to get some exercise, but grabbed lunch at McDonald’s first – thanks to their All Day Breakfast menu. ?

I got “3 sausage patties and 3 round fried eggs, please” and ate it at the park before my hike.

Low Carb Fast Food Breakfast

Aaron met me out there and we hiked one of my favorite trails: Old Stone Fort State Archaeological Park which has several waterfalls and great hiking trails. ?

Outdoor Exercise: Hiking, LowCarbTraveler at Big Falls

I had to work Sunday evening so Aaron came over made dinner. He’s a BIG fan of Hunter Gatherer Pili Nuts, so he sauteed those in butter with riced broccoli & cauliflower.

The Pili Nuts add such a nice buttery crunch to cauli rice!

Low Carb Vegan or Vegetarian Foods

The main dish was Parmesan Chicken which you can coat in mayo, but this time we used Primal Foods Avocado Oil Ranch instead, then coated it in fresh parmesan.

Primal Foods for Parmesan Chicken, Easy Low Carb Dinners

You just bake it at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, and it comes out perfect. ?

If you want GREAT parmesan chicken, my favorite way and top recommendation is to use Chipotle Lime Mayo instead. ?

We topped it with a bit of organic salsa:

Keto Dinner Ideas

We both agreed this was the BEST meal we’ve had in awhile. ?

Aaron loved the mashed cauliflower too – that was the first time either of us had tried it, even though I see it around the web all the time.

It’s such an easy low carb side, and NICE change from just the usual steamed cauliflower!

My MyFitnessPal Diary for Sunday

MyFitnessPal Low Carb Food Diary with Net Carbs Column

I had peanut butter & chocolate again that night.;)

 

On Monday I had leftovers from the weekend, and also did more Low Carb Waffle & Muffin Recipe experiments. ? I’ll HAVE to sit down and share all of those recipes, ideas & photos with you, because they were AMAZING!

I’ve been really tied up with work lately though so I’m short on time and running behind, which is why it was SO nice to get outdoors and unplugged for a hike for awhile on Sunday. ?

Hiking Buddies

But stay tuned – I’ll get those waffle & muffin recipes to you ASAP.

You’ll love them!! We did. ?

In fact we just tried ONE MORE pancake & muffin recipe tonight, and I think it was the best batter yet – or maybe the second best. I’m looking at a very strong tie between two of the recipes, lol…

 

How are things going with you?

22 Delicious Paleo Recipes to Make with Ham

Posted on January 22, 2018 By In Diet With disabled comments

Paleo Grubs
Paleo Grubs –

It sometimes seem that in the paleo world, bacon gets all the love. But what about its cousin, ham? Plain and simple ham is a great addition to soups and egg muffins, not to mention it’s delicious on its own with a homemade glaze. Try these paleo ham recipes!

ham recipies

1. Sweet Potato Spinach Frittata
This frittata is one of the most filling and nutritious breakfasts you can make, but it’s so easy! All you need for this one is olive oil, sweet potato, salt and pepper, eggs, chopped spinach, and sliced deli ham. The measurements are approximate, too, so use what you like!

Creamy Coconut Milk Seafood Chowder

2. Creamy Coconut Milk Seafood Chowder
This chowder is creamy with a coconut base and seasonings like garlic, leek, and lime juice. The best parts, of course, are the chunky bites of rainbow trout with tiger prawns, parma or prosciutto ham, and fresh mussels in their shells. You’ve got rutabaga, so it even has a veggie, too!

3. Ham and Egg Cups
Ham can be a great vehicle for eggs in general, and this super simple ham and egg cups recipe is so easy it’s hardly a recipe! I recommend garnishing with fresh basil. You don’t need to use the recommended brand—I suggest using a nitrate free smoked ham.

4. Easy Glazed Ham
Before holidays, the buzz in my family used to be “who’s going to pick up the ham?” That was until someone realized how easy it is to glaze your own ham! This version uses peach or apricot preserves (fruit-sweetened), honey, butter, shallots, and chipotle pepper flakes.

5. Ham and Turkey Frittata
This meaty frittata is full of flavors, including mushrooms, rosemary, oregano, and sweet potato. You can use leftover ham and turkey in whatever proportions work for you, and cook with your fat of choice. Bacon fat would definitely lend an amazing flavor to this dish.

Zucchini Fritter Eggs Benedict With Prosciutto and Tomato

6. Zucchini Fritter Eggs Benedict With Prosciutto and Tomato
Featuring a rich but easy blender Hollandaise sauce, these easy eggs benedict has prosciutto ham and a crispy zucchini fritter base to replace the English muffin with a healthy but still-dressed-up vegetable. It’s the perfect combination of flavors and textures!

7. Prosciutto Wrapped Scallops With Avocado Salsa Verde
This combo sounds fancy, but if you follow the ingredients and instructions, you’ll have a decadent light meal in no time. The scallops are seared and wrapped in prosciutto, and the salsa verde with avocado is the perfect tangy and refreshing complement to the flavors.

8. Ham and Pineapple Skewers
For being composed of only two parts, these skewers are incredibly flavorful and you’d better make a double batch because they’re going to go fast. Between the ham, the pineapple, and the flavorings from fresh pineapple juice, Dijon mustard, coconut aminos, raw honey, and ginger, these will become a fast favorite.

9. Ground Lamb and Ham Stuffed Tomatoes
This is a unique recipe that makes a great weeknight meal, and it beloved by kids and adults alike. You’ll need beefsteak tomatoes, shallot, mushrooms, butter or ghee, ground lamb and diced ham, garlic, parsley, and egg. The texture is kid-friendly and the flavors are bold but agreeable to a variety of palates.

Slow Cooker Ham

10. Slow Cooker Ham
Every paleo eater should have a good slow cooker ham recipe, because they can make your holidays and big family dinners so much easier by freeing up oven space and doing all the work for you. This one has honey, orange juice, rosemary, and apple cider vinegar.

11. Ham Salad
If you’re looking for a paleo recipe you can bring to a family picnic and not get any funny looks, this is the recipe for you. This ham salad uses cooked ham, paleo mayo, celery, red onion, apple, raisins, salt, and freshly ground black pepper. It’ll be a hit!

12. Ham and Spinach Egg Muffins
This is no shortage of “egg muffin” recipes on the internet, designed to create healthy, convenient savory breakfasts once can make ahead and enjoy on the go. I love this one using thinly sliced honey ham with spinach, eggs, dried dill, and a dash of salt and pepper.

13. Egg Muffins With Ham, Kale, and Cauliflower Rice
If you want to fancy up your egg muffins a bit, try this version with rice cauliflower, eggs, kale, ham, salt, and pepper. Despite looking and tasting like they were complicated to make, these egg muffins are as simple as the rest. Only a few ingredients needed!

Paleo Spaghetti Squash Hawaiian Pizza Pie
Photo: Smile Sandwich

14. Paleo Spaghetti Squash Hawaiian Pizza Pie
This pizza pie is incredibly easy to make, and tastes remarkably similar to pizza but with no crust or cheese. You’ve got cooked spaghetti squash, ham steak, onion, pineapple, pizza/pasta sauce (make sure it’s paleo), eggs, coconut oil, fresh basil, salt, and pepper.

15. Grain Free Cuban Sandwich
This Cuban sandwich is, on my opinion, one of the best ways to enjoy good quality ham. It’s made with mustard, butter pickles, and homemade plantain bread. The bread is fantastic! This recipe calls for cheese but notes that you can leave it out if you don’t eat dairy.

16. Glazed Ham With Apple and Cranberry Chutney
This sticky and sweet glazed ham is made with coconut sugar, raw honey, organic maple syrup, and whole cloves to stud the surface. Serve it with a homemade chutney using apples, onions, cranberries, fresh ginger, black pepper, and apple cider vinegar.

17. Ham and Veggie Breakfast Skillet
Got leftover ham that needs to be used up? Try this ham and veggie breakfast skillet made with fresh spinach, sweet potatoes, onion, grass-fed butter or ghee, sea salt, freshly ground pepper, and eggs. If you want, you can swap out the butter for a fat of your choice to play with the flavors.

Paleo Ham and Sweet Potato Soup

18. Paleo Ham and Sweet Potato Soup
With a touch of maple syrup and mustard, this ham soup has a delicious sweet-and-spicy savory flavor you’re going to love. Since it’s packed with ham, sweet potatoes, celery, carrots, onion, and more, you’re getting veggies along with protein and healthy fats from the coconut milk.

19. Shirred Eggs
This pretty egg-based dish with its lovely scallops edges is made in a dish lined with thinly sliced ham or prosciutto. Coconut milk, sea salt, cracked pepper, and herbs like fresh thyme, tarragon, or chives help to develop the flavors. Still need more? Top it with paleo Hollandaise sauce.

20. Spiced Maple Glazed Smoked Ham
Spiced with cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and cloves, this maple glazed ham is a real treat. Coconut palm sugar helps ensure a sticky and slightly caramelized outer “crust,” and you can plan to start this dish just a few hours before you want to eat it.

21. Hard Cooked Eggs With Basil and Fluffy Ham
These hard boiled eggs will look and taste impressive to your family and guests, but you don’t really have to do anything all that special to make them. The secret is just a microplane grater for the ham. Don’t forget the slivered basil leaves! They really complete the flavor.

Zucchini, Ham, and Sun-dried Tomato Savory Muffins
Photo: Eat Drink Paleo

22. Zucchini, Ham, and Sun-dried Tomato Savory Muffins
For a muffin that features ham but isn’t just egg-based, try this breadier version with tapioca, coconut, and almond flours as well as eggs, olive oil, sea salt, garlic, zucchini, chopped ham, and sun-dried tomatoes. They have an elegant flavor and a deliciously crumbly texture.

The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD and Dr. Steven Lin

Posted on January 21, 2018 By In Diet With disabled comments

David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny.

If there’s one thing I hope that you’ve learned in being a member of this community, it’s that no part of the body works in isolation. Our body is an incredibly synchronous machine, with any number of parts working in concert to execute even the subtlest movements or actions. Our entire body functions in this integrated way (hence terms like integrative health and integrative practitioner!).

In this discussion, one area we’ve neglected in this conversation is the mouth and our oral health. Dr. Steven Lin, the author of the new book The Dental Diet, is here to encourage us to consider the role of this part of the body not only in our total health, but as the starting point for the entire journey OF health!

Let me share a bit more about Dr. Lin:

Dr. Steven Lin is a board-registered dentist, writer, and speaker with work published in The Sydney Morning Herald and The British Dental Journal. He has also written for MindBodyGreen and About.com and given talks as part of the TEDx program.

Trained at USYD with a background in biomedical science, he is a passionate whole-health advocate, focusing on the link between nutrition and dental health. Dr. Lin focuses on helping his patients prevent dental disease so as to avoid treatment. He looks for the root cause of disease, believing that the mouth-body connection is the best way to monitor our health.

He is also convinced that our diet is the cause of the problems in our mouth, from crooked, rotten teeth to inflamed gums. The oral-systemic link means our mouths affect our body and our bodies affect our mouths.

Dr. Lin’s personal and professional mission is to prevent dental diseases instead of treating them.

I do hope you’ll enjoy today’s interview, pick up a copy of Dr. Lin’s book, and think more about the implications of your health choices on your oral (and total!) health.

Make sure to follow Dr. Lin on his website, facebook and twitter.

22 Heavenly Paleo Souffle Recipes (Savory and Sweet)

Posted on January 21, 2018 By In Diet With disabled comments

Paleo Grubs
Paleo Grubs –

Souffle has a reputation for being finicky and difficult to make. But it doesn’t have to be! Try these paleo-friendly soufflé recipes with no sugar or grains, and usually minimal natural sweeteners. There are some savory and some sweet, but all are simple to make and will be a perfect breakfast, dessert, or dinner side dish your family will love.

souffle recipes

1. Berry Pancake Souffle
With the natural sweetness of berries (whatever your favorites are), this soufflé doesn’t need any added sweetener. It only needs grassfed butter or ghee, eggs, vanilla extract, and a touch of cinnamon for a delicious breakfast that takes only a few minutes to make.

Raspberry Souffle

2. Raspberry Souffle
Just look at how this beautiful soufflé rises up out of the ramekin with pure perfection! The flavor is sweet and delicate with bright raspberries. This is maple sugar-sweetened with a touch of honey and arrowroot powder to make the texture work.

3. Butternut Squash Souffle
This sweet soufflé is spiced with ground cinnamon and vanilla extract and sweetened with a bit of honey. You’ll need lots of butternut squash for this recipe, so it’s a great way to use up those squashes you’ve had hanging out in your pantry or cool storage since the fall.

4. Strawberry Souffle Omelet
This strawberry breakfast treat is made with vanilla and almond extract for a decadent and sophisticated flavor, sweetened with organic coconut sugar. Use lots of fresh sliced strawberries and sprinkle sliced toasted almonds over the top!

5. Paleo Apple Pie Souffle
This one tasted just like your grandmother’s apple pie, but without all the grains and refined sugars. You’ve got an apple bottom with cinnamon, a custardy egg filling, and a fluffy meringue-like egg white topping. And this one’s got no added sweetener, so it’s a great light dessert or breakfast.

Flourless Dark Chocolate Souffle

6. Flourless Dark Chocolate Souffle
This is one of the simplest soufflé recipes you can make with just almond milk, coconut sugar, dark chocolate, egg yolks, and egg whites. It’s a great starting point if you’re never made soufflé before because the ingredients are simple, and also because chocolate.

7. Raspberry Souffle With Molden Chocolate Center
This light soufflé is filled with bright raspberry flavors and a melty, chocolate center. For the granulated sugar substitute, try coconut sugar—maple sugar would also work well and may preserve the light pink color of the soufflé a bit better than coconut sugar.

8. Mini Sweet Potato Souffles
Made with sweet potato and banana, these naturally-sweet (nothing added!) desserts are packed with flavors from pecans, walnuts, or almonds, vanilla, cinnamon, and ground nutmeg with shredded coconut. And you’re getting a vegetable for dessert!

9. Butternut Squash Souffle
The last butternut squash soufflé I showed you was a sweet version with cinnamon, and this one is savory instead. You’ll just need eggs (separated), squash, coconut milk, salt, and pepper. This makes a great fall or winter side dish when you need something protein-rich.

Spinach and Chard Souffle
Photo: Jan’s Sushi Bar

10. Spinach and Chard Souffle
This soufflé is perfect as a dinner dish with fresh spinach and Swiss chard, coconut milk, onion, garlic, and nutmeg as the flavors. It’s also a fun and healthy way to dress up spinach and chard if you’re tired of having them sautéed or in salads. Try a soufflé for a change!

11. Simple Egg Souffle
If you love having eggs for breakfast but you’re running out of ideas to make them fun and different than your usual omelet, give this recipe a try. You’ll need lots of eggs, coconut milk, onion powder, baking powder, almond flour, sea salt, black pepper, and a cooking fat of your choice.

12. Souffle Frittata
Part soufflé, part frittata, this breakfast is super easy to make and is a welcome change for breakfast. It’s made with butter and eggs (yum) and you can fill the recipe with your favorite frittata fillings—anything you want as long as you follow the proportions.

13. Carrot Souffle
This carrot soufflé is a great dinner side dish to get your veggies in along with some protein from the eggs. The flavor combination is awesome, with savory onion as well as cinnamon and vanilla. You’ve never had anything like this delicious soufflé before!

Strawberry Pudding Souffle
Photo: Perry’s Plate

14. Strawberry Pudding Souffle
These treats are soft and light as a cloud, with a delicious strawberry flavor you won’t be able to resist. You can make them with either fresh or frozen (thawed) strawberries. Fresh lemon juice adds some spunk to the flavor and raw honey is the only sweetener.

15. Spinach and Bacon Souffle
You knew there’d be a bacon soufflé, didn’t you? Here it is! You’ll need bacon, ghee, tapioca flour, nutritional yeast (for a cheesy flavor without dairy), almond milk, sea salt, black pepper, eggs yolks and whites, and baby spinach. This is a super healthy soufflé that’s packed full of bacon flavor.

16. Easy Paleo Chocolate Souffle
Here’s another take on chocolate soufflé, and this one is full of healthy fats like coconut oil, and coconut milk. The honey sweetener is optional, because the dark chocolate will be a bit sweetened already. This could be a delicious low-sugar dessert if you want it to be!

17. Thanksgiving Savory Bacon Butternut Squash Souffle
While this soufflé would be perfect as a side dish for a Thanksgiving dinner, you can enjoy it whenever you want! Make it with butternut squash, eggs, bacon, bacon fat (this one infuse the whole soufflé with bacon flavor), garlic, shallots, fresh thyme, sage, salt, and pepper.

Paleo Dark Chocolate Souffle

18. Paleo Dark Chocolate Souffle
Dark chocolate soufflé desserts are like a beautiful marriage of cake and mousse. This version is decadent with coconut milk, coconut butter, raw honey, pure cacao powder, vanilla, and a touch of coffee powder, which really brings out the chocolate flavor.

19. Spinach Souffle
I can’t get over how beautiful this deep, green soufflé is. It has a light flavor with fresh spinach, coconut milk, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and nutmeg. It’s also incredibly easy to make! Serve this as a side dish with any meal of the day to help you get in your greens.

20. Paleo Dark Chocolate Souffles For Two
Looking for a great date night dessert with chocolate and amazing flavors? Here’s your winner! This soufflé for two has dark chocolate, maple extract, coconut milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, and extra delicious toppings like extra maple syrup, whipped coconut cream, and raspberries.

21. Meyer Lemon Custard Souffle
For this recipe, you’ll just need to replace the evaporated cane juice with either coconut sugar or maple sugar. The rest is easy! Just an eye, Meyer lemon, a touch of arrowroot starch, and some butter. These light and springy soufflé custards are full of lemon flavor.

Breakfast Fruit Souffle
Photo: Primally Inspired

22. Breakfast Fruit Souffle
Make this easy soufflé with eggs, cinnamon, coconut oil, vanilla, and maple syrup. You can top it with whatever fruits you like to have for breakfast—I’d go with a mixture of berries like strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. Maybe some banana, too!

Snowed In: Low Carb Baking & Taste Testing Fun :) Cookies, Waffles, Cupcakes & Candy

Posted on January 20, 2018 By In Diet With disabled comments

Keto SnacksIn my last food diary I shared my low carb meals from the weekend including two very easy (and healthy!) home-cooked dinners with delicious veggies.

Aaron brought me a great salad Monday evening because I had to work late, then we got hit with snow that night. Snow, ice and subzero temps for days actually!

I work from home fortunately (I’ve been in business 21 years now), so we got snowed in here at my house – with a lot of low carb products I had lined up for food reviews…:)

I don’t normally spend a week eating cookies, waffles, cupcakes and candy (even if they ARE low carb!) but… lol, that’s what it came down to! That and some fun new low carb recipe experiments. ?

I’ll give you a quick tour of all the fun low carb foods we tried this week. Baking was a necessity of course, not just for food – but also because keeping the oven going helped keep the house warm while it was below zero for days on end. ? Brr!

I have discount codes for most of the products we were testing out this week, so I’ll include those at the end of the post in case you want to check any of them out.

Monday

For breakfast I had my new favorite “hot coffee keto shake” using the Ketologie Keto Shake Mix. It’s so much better than BPC (Bullet Proof Coffee) – creamy, smooth, rich and no mess or fuss! Plus it has the coconut oil AND collagen in it already.:)

Keto Coffee Shake, Better than BPC!

I had leftovers for lunch: a meal I had cooked over the weekend with grilled chicken, Pili Nuts and roasted veggies. Then for dinner Aaron brought me a salad from Bojangles’.

Their Roast Chicken Bites Salad is 14 net carbs, and the ranch packet is 2 net carbs. I ate *most* of it – maybe 3/4 of the salad. It’s always so fresh and really good!

Bojangles Fast Food Low Carb Salad

After dinner we made Low Carb Chocolate Walnut Cookies using Good Dee’s Double Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix and adding a bag of chopped walnuts:

Low Carb Chocolate Walnut Cookies, Gluten Free & Keto Friendly

I’ve made these before and they’re delicious!

Chocolatey, nutty, the perfect cookie consistency – and very low carb.

I love getting creative with Good Dee’s mixes! ?

Easy Low Carb Desserts

Tuesday

Breakfast was my “cheesy eggs” which for some reason always get a lot of compliments on Instagram. ? Here’s how I make them:

I melt a full TBSP of real butter in a non stick skillet over medium heat (5 on my stove). I crack the eggs into the melted butter and scramble them right in the skillet, add a dash of salt, then about 1/3 the way through I add in the cubed cheese (about half ounce per egg) that I cubed off the block – and finish scrambling.

The key: cook slow over medium heat!

Perfect Scrambled Eggs

For lunch I made more of my Spinach Biscuits Recipe, and also made some small Cheddar Biscuits using the same base low carb biscuit recipe:

Baking Low Carb Bread and Biscuits - Versatile Gluten Free Recipe with Simple Ingredients

Note: I’ve discovered adding 1-2 teaspoons of baking powder really makes them rise up nicely and fluffier on the inside. ?

Easy Low Carb Biscuit Recipes

The base recipe is:

1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Almond Meal/Flour
1 TBSP melted butter
2 large eggs
1 6oz bag Kraft Finely Shredded Parmesan

Low Carb Cheddar Biscuits

For the spinach biscuits I add:

* Pictsweet Cut Leaf Spinach (whole bag- steamed)

You could steam or saute fresh spinach of course, or add pretty much anything to the base recipe for fun low carb bread & biscuit creations. ?

Low Carb Spinach Biscuits - Gluten Free Bread Recipes that are Keto Friendly

You can slice them in half with a sharp knife, or just use two biscuits to make a sandwich – which is what Aaron did. I dipped my biscuits in ranch and chunky salsa.:)

Taste Test: Snickerdoodle vs Peanut Butter

Cookies for dinner?! Sure, as long as they’re low carb and filling. Why not, right? ? Besides, we had spinach at lunch – and filled up on those beautiful biscuits.

I also wanted to get Aaron’s opinion on the two different Keto Kookie flavors because I am in LOVE with their brand new Peanut Butter recipe – but I needed a second opinion…

Best Keto Kookie Flavor EVER is...

I’ve had ALL of the Keto Kookie flavors and Snickerdoodle has been my favorite – until they came out with the new Peanut Butter cookies this month. ?

The Snickerdoodle Keto Kookie has a really nice cookie texture and a great snickerdoodle/cinnamon flavor:

Snickerdoodle Keto Kookie - Low Carb, Gluten Free Cookies

The brand new Peanut Butter Keto Kookie though… is buttery soft and crumbly with a rich peanut butter flavor, and simply the BEST “kookie” they’ve come out with yet! ♥

Gluten Free, Low Carb Peanut Butter Keto Kookie

Aaron agreed. He said they both had great cookie texture, smelled amazing, and the flavors were wonderful… but agreed there’s no comparison to the new Peanut Butter Keto Kookie. They really nailed this recipe. ?

Peanut Butter Keto Kookie - Gluten Free, Low Carb Cookies

It’s the closest thing to a traditional peanut butter cookie I’ve EVER tried, including making my own low carb pb cookies at home!;)

Wednesday

Still snowed in, now with windchill & frostbite warnings, we decided to try the Low Carb Pecan Pie Waffle Recipe that came in the last Keto Krate box.

Waffles seemed perfect on a cold winter morning. ?

The recipe called for Legendary Foods Pecan Pie Nut Butter and also for “a TBSP of sweetener.”

This was the perfect opportunity to break out my Ketologie Sweet Like Sugar and test it out!

Trying New Low Carb Recipes and Keto Product Taste Testing

The Ketologie Sweet Like Sugar was perfect. It’s granular like sugar, but it’s a zero carb organic sweetener that really does taste just like sugar!

And the waffles? YUM!

The Legendary Foods Pecan Pie Nut Butter is rich and delicious by itself, but it made FABULOUS waffles!

Low Carb Pecan Pie Waffles - from the January Keto Krate Recipe

They were even better with the (brand new) ChocoZero Maple Pecan Syrup. Perfect flavor combination! That plus real butter melted over the hot Pecan Pie waffles was seriously the best low carb breakfast I think I’ve ever had.:)

ChocZero Syrups - New Maple Pecan Sugar Free Syrup

I’ll write up the low carb waffle recipe for you if you don’t subscribe to Keto Krate or didn’t get the January Box that had that recipe included.

We are working on some variations to it, which I can’t wait to test out & share with you – including lower carb versions of the waffles, and also low carb muffins. ?

We made a double batch of the waffles, so I had those for both breakfast AND lunch (no complaints! lol) then I ate some leftover roasted vegetables for dinner.

We were just using up and working with what we had here, but as you can see we weren’t suffering much.;) lol

For dessert…

Low Carb White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Peanut Butter Cups:

Sugar Free, Low Carb Dipping Cups for Keto Candy and Fat Bombs

I made these using ChocZero Dipping Cups and adding salted macadamia nuts and peanut butter – using the dipping cups as a candy mold.

That made for a delicious sweet & salty, creamy & crunchy combo!

Thursday

We decided to experiment with the low carb waffle recipe again, this time with another nut butter from Legendary Foods: the Blueberry Cinnamon Bun Cashew Nut Butter.

At 8 net carbs per serving, or 4 net carbs per TBSP, yes it’s amazingly delicious… but WAY too high in carbs for my taste.;)

We also added a bit of organic frozen blueberries. Two waffles were way too high in carbs for a keto diet but they WERE delicious, fluffy and beautiful. ?

Low Carb Blueberry Waffles - Recipe Experiements

It FINALLY warmed up just above freezing, only for a few short hours in the afternoon on Thursday, but it was enough to let us out of the house before we went totally stir crazy (or ate any more waffles -lol).

We got out for a nice long drive to the Savage Gulf State Natural Area to hike Greeter Falls and Boardtree Falls in Altamont, TN.

It was a total winter wonderland up there, and breathtakingly beautiful with all of the waterfalls frozen in midair! ?

Winter Workout - Hiking Frozen Waterfalls in Tennessee!

We hiked for maybe 2 or 3 hours. The fresh air was GREAT, and it felt SO good to stretch my legs on the trails with a few good inclines.

We just layered up and kept moving.;) It was exhilarating between the fresh air, exercise, the cold and all of the amazing views!

I was ready for a big juicy steak and some vegetables at that point, so we stopped on the way back for a healthy low carb dinner.

I was CRAVING greens, so I ordered a caesar salad with no croutons – just romaine & mozzarella. And I cleaned that plate!

Low Carb Restaurant Sides - Romaine Salad with Fresh Mozzarella

My dinner was a juicy 12oz ribeye steak with sauteed vegetables – broccoli, cauliflower, squash & zucchini. It comes with carrots too, but I pick those out.;)

Low Carb Dining - Keto Restaurant Meal

I ate ALL of my salad and a little over half of my meal, and brought the rest home to eat for lunch the next day.

OMG THAT WAS GOOD!!

Later that night we decided to make Low Carb Chocolate Cupcakes using Good Dee’s new Chocolate Snack Cake Mix.

Low Carb Chocolate Cupcakes with Nut Butter

We filled the cupcake tin fuller (and even added a teaspoon of baking powder) with the goal of having fluffy muffin tops on these…

That didn’t work. They fell flat. ?

We topped them with another nut butter from Legendary Foods. This one was the “Peanut Butter Cup Nut Butter” and NEITHER of us liked it. It was thick and flavorless – and I ended up scraping it off of my cupcakes.

Aaron didn’t even bother putting it on his at all. ?

That’s the first LF product we have NOT liked!

Even though they didn’t fluff up or have “muffin tops” Good Dee’s Snack Cake Mix has a great flavor and cake texture. Very light & fluffy, and delicious!

Low Carb Cupcakes and Cake Mix Test

And yes, we’ve been having FUN taste-testing and experimenting – and eating all the fun combinations of low carb products this week.;) Especially those waffles!!

Friday

We had cheesy eggs again for breakfast, and I had my leftover steak & veggies for lunch. Aaron ordered “Naked Wings” from Domino’s for dinner, which are just chicken wings with no sauce.

They’re best if you order them “extra crispy” by the way:

Domino's Pizza Low Carb Delivery - Naked Wings, No Sauce (Extra Crispy)

I only ate two of the wings, and I just ate them plain – then later I made myself a yummy low carb snack plate!

I had one of the chocolate cupcakes, a serving of pecans, an ounce of cream cheese, and 2 tablespoons of peanut butter:

Low Carb Snack Plate - LCHF Foods

I just realized I forgot to log the 2nd TBSP of peanut butter. ?

How To Get Net Carbs in MyFitnessPal

Aaron finished off the cupcakes (and also ate most of the cookies & waffles this week ? thankfully!). He loves the ChocoZero syrups, the two we’ve tried so far anyway: chocolate and maple pecan.

Low Carb Cupcakes Experiment

I love the ChocoZero syrups too, but am most excited to try their new Peppermint Syrup – which should be here any day now. ?

 

FAQ about ChocZero Dipping Cups

I get a lot of questions about the ChocZero cups so I posted a Q&A about ChocZero Dipping Cups on Facebook yesterday (based on MY experience with them). You’ll find that helpful if you ordered some and aren’t sure about certain things:

See my Dipping Cup Creations & Ideas for creative ways to use them. ?

 

Being snowed in was fun. ?

Being snowed in with a man that likes to bake… even more fun! ? lol

Aaron has a serious sweet tooth. Me, not so much. The big juicy steak was my favorite meal of the week! Well… the Pecan Pie Waffles with Maple Pecan syrup DID pull a close second.;)

Here are the links to some of the products we were testing out and taste-testing / experimenting with – and the coupon codes for our discount…

Our Discount Codes

I try to score these discounts for you every chance I get! ?

Keto Kookie – code: LOWCARBTRAVELER

ChocZero – code: TravelingLowCarb

Ketologie – Sign up by email on that page for the Free Keto 101 Ebook. It’s a great read, and that will get you on the list for any special deals or coupon codes that Dr. Tracey puts out.;)

 

I included Pili Nuts in the list because we are going to try the waffle recipe with the brand new Pili Nut Butter, and also use that for a Blueberry Muffin Recipe too – instead of the Legendary Foods nut butters.

The goal: to lower the carb count on the waffle recipe!

We have a few more Legendary Foods nut butters to try too, and we’re thinking next up will be Apple Pie Walnut Muffins and Apple Pie Pancakes. What do you think? ?

 

In addition to the fun hike this week, I’ve been keeping my Daily Tricep Dips goal. I’m up to 20 at a time, and I’m holding them longer – which feels great!

Confession: as much fun as this has been, I’m REALLY looking forward to the 50-60 degree weather this weekend… and getting back to my usual SIMPLE low carb meals.

How are things going with you?

I would love to hear how your week went, and what you’re into this weekend. And of course any new low carb foods, products or recipes YOU’VE tried lately…

Leave a comment and let’s chat!:)

Best,

p.s. I had a brief moment of true sadness when I ran out of Peanut Butter Keto Kookies AND they sold out on that same day! ? ? Fortunately they are back in stock – and I have more on the way now. ? *whew* (yes, they are THAT good!)

Insulin Resistance and Cognitive Decline

Posted on January 20, 2018 By In Diet With disabled comments

David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny.

I want to dive a bit deeper today into our discussion of the relationship between diabetes (and even mild elevations in blood sugar), and the overall health of your brain. With that, it’s becoming increasingly clear the lifestyle factors that impact metabolic disease, of which insulin resistance is at the core, also play a key role in influencing the health of the brain and long-term cognitive capacity. Let’s look at this recent study published in Experimental and Molecular Medicine in today’s video.

12 Comforting and Healthy Paleo Trout Recipes

Posted on January 19, 2018 By In Diet With disabled comments

Paleo Grubs
Paleo Grubs –

Trout doesn’t often get as much love as its ocean-dwelling distant cousin, salmon. But trout can be made delicious and paleo-style with ingredients like fresh herbs and spices, coconut milk, and more. Try some of these paleo trout recipes and let your trout feel the love.

trout recipes

1. Broiled Parsley and Oregano Trout
For another dish that looks fancy but is actually really easy to whip up on a weeknight, try this trout stuffed with parsley, oregano, salt, lemon zest, garlic, and olive oil. You don’t need to do much to trout to make it taste good, because it has such a nice flavor naturally.

Asian Slaw Salad With Smoked Trout and Lime Tamari Dressing

2. Asian Slaw Salad With Smoked Trout and Lime Tamari Dressing
This deliciously savory salad is made with whole smoked ocean trout, green cabbage, carrot, spring ion, sesame seeds, and coriander. Top it with a silky tamari lime dressing and you’ll be left with a lunch salad to look forward to on a busy workday.

3. Cedar Plant Trout With Asian Guacamole
One sure way to win me over on any dish is to add guacamole to it, so I’m instantly sold on this recipe. The colors and flavors combine magnificently! The trout filets are seasoned with sesame oil and cracked black pepper, and topped with a guac featuring ginger, fresh mint, lime, and more.

4. Pan Seared Trout With an Orange Butter Pecan Sauce
In my family, we are sauce people. Put a sauce on almost anything and it’s an instant hint. I’m especially excited about this tasty orange butter pecan sauce for pan seared trout with olive oil, orange zest, chopped pecans, parsley, salt, and pepper. It’s easy and delicious.

5. Roasted Rainbow Trout With Vegetables
I love this easy one-dish dinner that comes together in 40 minutes and doesn’t take a lot of work, because the oven does all the cooking. With seasonings like maple syrup and garlic powder, you know this trout with sweet potato, eggplants, and bell pepper is going to be tasty.

Creamy Coconut Milk Seafood Chowder

6. Creamy Coconut Milk Seafood Chowder
Made with rainbow sea trout, rutabaga, fresh mussels, shrimp, coconut milk, leek, garlic, and other amazingly delicious ingredients, this super savory and light-but-filling meal is healthy and takes only fifteen minutes. You wouldn’t believe it from how fancy it looks!

7. Smoked Trout and Endive Salad
This is the salad I would love to be eating for lunch every single day. It has gorgeous colors with ingredients like endive, sweet apple, radishes, smoked trout, yogurt (you can use coconut yogurt), grainy mustard, olive oil, lemon, salt, and pepper.

8. Perfect Poached Fish
This recipe will work with any kind of fish, but the recommended dish is trout because it goes so well with these flavors. The process and ingredients are simple and elegant with white wine, sliced onion, crushed garlic, lemon, and sea salt. So delicious.

9. Paleo Smoked Trout Mousse
Trout mousse is a sophisticated dish that can be served with paleo crackers or veggies as a dip or spread. You’ll love this easy version made with smoked trout flakes, smoked salmon, elmon, chives, dill leaves, coconut milk, coconut oil, sea salt, and black pepper.

Celeriac Remoulade and Smoked Trout Salad

10. Celeriac Remoulade and Smoked Trout Salad
Few salads I’ve seen are more beautiful and elegant than this simple one with celeriac, smoked ocean trout, Spanish onion, capers, olive oil mayo, lemon juice, sea salt, and black pepper. The dressing is light and simple to preserve and highlight the smoked trout flavors.

11. Rainbow Trout Casserole
This casserole is packed with goodness from Brussels sprouts to trout to Dijon mustard and butternut squash. Chopped pistachios add a welcome crunch while the flavors of garlic and onion season the cauliflower and other veggies. A bit of ghee and chicken stock complete the subtle flavors.

12. Cabbage Wraps With Smoked Trout and Avocado Cream
When your cabbage wraps are filled with flavorful ingredients like smoked trout and lemony avocado cream, you won’t even miss the bread. The best part of this recipe is that it takes only a few minutes to make, so you’ll be feeling nourished in no time.

Check In! Powering Through The Weekend? :-)

Posted on January 19, 2018 By In Diet With disabled comments

Keto SnacksSome people say that weekends are the hardest for them to stay on track with their healthy eating and low carb macros, so I thought I’d check in… and see how your weekend is going? ?

I’ve had a GREAT week and am even back to doing my daily Tricep Dips, which makes me super happy!

Which is all because I could NOT open my jar of Pili Nut Butter last week, which did NOT make me happy. ? lol

I have some cool news for you, plus I scored you a discount on the NEW Peanut Butter Keto Kookies (code: LOWCARBTRAVELER) but first here’s a quick photo tour of my low carb meals this week.

You can also see what I ate last weekend here if you missed my last food diary…

I actually cooked a little this week. ?

My Low Carb Meals This Week

This week I made my low carb spinach biscuits which just use a few simple ingredients but come out GREAT. ? I really love easy low carb recipes, especially for quick breads like my low carb biscuits.

Low Carb Bread Recipes

I only made half a batch of the spinach biscuits and I added a little shredded cheddar because I was short on parmesan.

I was also out of parchment paper which is what I normally use, but I had some non-stick foil – both are great for quick cleanup and no sticking.;)

Low Carb Spinach Recipes

Those made for a delicious sandwich. ?

I used Oscar Mayer Deli-Style Rotisserie Chicken slices and Duke’s mayo:

Low Carb Sandwiches

I had some great take-out this week too…

Including the Roast Chicken Bites Salad from Bojangles’.

It’s 14 net carbs for the entire salad, and 2 net carbs for their ranch packet.

Bojangles Low Carb Fast Food - Roast Chicken Bites Salad

Another great low carb take-out meal was this Grilled Chicken Taco Salad – minus the taco ? – from a Mexican Restaurant.

I ordered it with avocado slices instead of guacamole, mostly out of personal preference but also because I have no idea what they put in their guac.

Low Carb Mexican Restaurant Meal, Take-Out

Several people asked me how I track restaurant meals. If it’s not something on the menu, where I can look up the nutrition facts online to log it, I just log the individual foods in my meal – based on how much I eat, like this:

Tracking Mexican Food Low Carb Macros

I couldn’t finish the whole taco salad so I had the rest of it – mostly chicken, avocado & cheese – the next day as leftovers:

Low Carb Leftovers

 

I tried the new Peanut Butter Keto Kookies this week. ?

This flavor JUST came out this month…

Peanut Butter Keto Kookie - Gluten Free, Low Carb Cookies

Yum!

Aaron and I had them plain one morning with coffee, and we both LOVED them. They are the closest thing to a traditional peanut butter cookie I’ve ever had – very soft and buttery and crumbly. ?

I scored us a coupon code too! Go to Keto Kookies and use code LOWCARBTRAVELER for our special discount.

They were even better “dressed up” as a delicious dessert!

I topped the Peanut Butter Keto Kookies with cream cheese, peanut butter and then drizzled them with ChocZero sugar free chocolate:

Low Carb Dessert aka LCHF Keto Fat Bomb

Amazing flavor combination!!

That dessert above made for a great breakfast one morning. ?

Other low carb breakfasts I’ve had this week include my usuals – like cheesy eggs. This is 4 eggs scrambled in real butter with colby jack cheese:

Easy Low Carb Breakfast Ideas

And my favorite “low carb cereal” breakfast: 1/2 cup of pecan pieces, 1/4 cup 4% Daisy brand cottage cheese and 4 small diced strawberries:

Easy Low Carb Breakfast Ideas

This was a very easy low carb dinner…

I had some steamed spinach left over from making the spinach biscuits, and some Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Fajita Strips. I tossed both in a skillet with some butter and fried those together – then drizzled Alfredo Sauce over it:

Quick Easy Low Carb Dinner Ideas

I used Pictsweet frozen sliced yellow squash and lined it on a baking sheet with olive oil and salt and cooked those in the oven to go with the chicken & spinach:

Low Carb Dinner - Chicken, Spinach and Squash Meal

 

I made a delicious dessert using ChocZero Dipping Cups.

I love those things!!

I added half a TBSP of Pili Nut Butter to each White Chocolate Dipping Cup, plus half a serving of macadamia nuts. Then I topped each one (I made two) with another TBSP of Pili Nut Butter (half a TBSP on each):

Keto Candy, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut LCHF Fat Bomb

You can get the Pili Nut Butter here. I like Almond Butter better or natural peanut butter better, but the Pili Nuts are amazing. My favorite low carb nut!!

The ChocZero dipping cups make the best “keto candy” ever!

Some people call these Fat Bombs, but I love that you can use the cups as candy molds to make individual candies instead of making up a whole batch of something. Which is great for portion control. ?

Low Carb Candy Recipes

You can see my Dipping Cup Ideas here.

I used the Dark Chocolate ChocZero Dipping Cup on the Keto Kookie dessert above too. ChocZero makes chocolate syrup, and I have some to try, but I love how the dipping cup chocolate sets up kind of like Magic Shell. ?

Keto Friendly Low Carb Dessert Ideas

Aaron loved that ^ and also the “Turkey Sandwiches.” ?

That was my favorite meal of the week too, so I’ll probably make more of the Spinach Biscuits this week. They’re great straight out of the oven too, or topped with a fried egg – so they work well for dinner OR breakfast.

Low Carb Biscuit Sandwich

 

I just got another box full of low carb foods to try, so I’ll give you all the details on that in one of my next posts – plus how you can get a FREE purple hand mixer.

Stay tuned for that! ?

I’ve also been enjoying Chocolate Keto Coffee Shakes (VIDEO) a lot this week, and just supported their Kickstarter Campaign to bring individually sized packets to the market. I’m reviewing their entire 21-Day Kickstart Program too, so I’ll give you all the nitty gritty details on that soon as well.

Those two links ^ go to Facebook posts, but they are on my public page so you don’t need to be ON facebook or be logged in to watch the video or see the posts.;)

How are things going with you?

I would love to hear how your week went, and how you’re weekend is going. Any questions, or fun low carb meals & ideas you want to share?

Leave a comment and let’s chat!:)
