We see so many amazing success stories in our “Cooking Keto with Kristie” Facebook Group that we decided it was time to shine the spotlight on a few. This week we salute member Candy Martin for not 1 but 2 “non-scale” victories. Candy Martin you are amazing! Want […]
My grandmother always made the best hot chocolate . She started with cocoa powder and water, and I loved when she made it for me. Sadly, my own children got cocoa mix until we went low carb, and I was determined to make my own. My Keto friendly […]
Thought you guys might want to see our menus or menu options this week while Kristin P and I are working and eating in Stockholm. Tonight, we will choose from this menu. For the other nights, the menu is chosen and we will eat a common meal, choosing […]
Makes 2 servings Prep time: 2 minutes, plus 5 to 10 minutes to cool Cook time: 3 to 4 minutes Using precooked sausage or leftover sausage or browning sausage ahead of time makes this a really quick meal. My kids can assemble it themselves, or I can prep […]
It’s Halloween which can be a tough time to make good decisions when living a Keto lifestyle. Here are a few tips to not only make healthy choices for yourself but advice on how to encourage good habits for candy hungry kiddos. Get our Low Carb Chili Recipe
Makes 8 servings This very low carb chili makes 8 generous servings. Consider that there is three pounds of meat in the recipe which ensures that it is hearty and filling. One of the reasons that I’ve added so much meat is because chili can be high carb. […]
That word has popped up in at least 4 different places for me over the past week. And all in the context of food… First, there was a conversation about the upcoming holiday season and someone said, “What if someone just wants to enjoy the holiday and eat […]
The very first copy of my new book “Crazy Busy Keto” has finally arrived….and it’s time for the official “unboxing”…..with the help of “J” and the dogs of course. Can’t wait to share this book with all of you! The book will be released on November 26th online, […]
Pi day just got infinitely better! A rich, chocolate filling and a light meringue crust make a great formula for Pi day. The meringue crust was something my grandmother made just a few times. I’d forgotten about it until I was thinking about Pi day and what I […]
Let’s look at the hype and some reliable resources to reassure our female (and perhaps our male) members that consistently eating whole, real foods like meat, full-fat dairy, and vegetables and NOT EATING processed packaged foods created in a factory, will result in personal crotch calamity.
My latest book, Keto Living Day by Day, includes a complete 4-week guide to following a ketogenic diet. We will use the book like a textbook and the guide I’m providing here like an active “class”, so that you have support every single day of the 28.
Here’s how to follow the 28 day guide and what you need to do NOW to prepare for September 10th.
When I compiled a collection of all of my Pumpkin Spice recipes, I came up with nine. Nine? That’s not an even number, so just to tidy up the list, I decided to share my Pumpkin Spice Dutch baby recipe.
When I took the first bite, I nearly cried. My eyes closed, I was transported to my Grandmother’s kitchen just as it was when it was overwhelmed by Christmas baking and cooking. It was G who pulled me back in time as she said, “Mom, is it wrong that I’m really glad that Dad doesn’t like coconut?! I really don’t want to share this!” We savored that cake, each being considerate of the other and only having a few bites over several days. As I offered her the last crumbs, she said, “This. Mom, THIS cake is what I want for my birthday.”
If you’re following along on the 28-day guide in Keto Living Day by Day, we’re starting week 2 on Monday! The first week has been GREAT fun, and I love the progress that folks have made so far. Now, I know that it’s a holiday week, so you may need to adjust this menu to fit your celebration plans.
Meal planning may or may not excite you. If it doesn’t it, I understand, and I won’t hold it against you; however, if you like having a guide to meals that are truly low carb (or ketogenic), then I think you’ll like this.
What can you accomplish in 28 days?
While I don’t love tracking my food intake, it can be a very powerful tool for troubleshooting. In fact, in my Facebook group, if you complain of a stall or of not losing weight quickly enough, you’re likely to be asked for a 5-day food journal. In my […]
