Today I ring in four months on a ketogenic diet. Happy ketoversary to me! A little update…
If you have a bullet blender and like fresh restaurant style salsa, you must try this super easy recipe! It’s also one of the best salsa recipes I’ve tried. Now, this isn’t something you want to dive into mouth first. While it is keto friendly, it’s not your keto bestie. Think good clean fun in moderation. I like to drizzle some on top of one of my favorite Mexican casseroles, king ranch chicken. Delicious!
I’ve had a bit of an obsession with spaghetti squash lately. Like all day ‘err day. Something about it really has been hitting the spot. I thought I’d share my favorite way to fix it – twice baked – in just five easy steps.
If you’ve never tried spaghetti squash before, I encourage you to have it this way first. The texture is similar to angel hair pasta, it tastes like spaghetti with a hint of sweetness, and it’s hard to screw up. Spaghetti squash is also economic as it runs about $1/lb and even your biggest squash weighs in around only three pounds.
Running errands? Road trip? Over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house you go? Chances are you’ll get the munchies or need some fuel, and maybe you forgot to pack snacks or didn’t feel like prepping them. With the weekend coming up, I thought I would share five of my favorite keto friendly snacks you can find on the road at your average pit stops.
Chocolatey, creamy, smooth… chocolate mousse has got it goin’ on. Here are two ways to crush that chocolate/creamy/dessert craving – one zero carb while the other is one net carb, both stupid simple, and both offer different textures. Either way, it’ll “stick to your ribs” to fend off any hunger pains. I use mousse often when fasting (before or after to drive up my fat numbers) or when my sweet tooth starts acting like a napless toddler. It’s good for breakfast, too… I’ve heard…
Creamy, bacon-chicken-y, full of flavor and one of my husband’s favorite keto recipes that feels indulgent. This is a recipe you can prep in advance, throw in the crockpot on your way out the door, and enjoy when you get home.
Let’s talk hidden carbs. They’re lurking out there and you need to train yourself to be aware.
