Caramel sauce on a keto diet is like a dream come true! Especially when the ingredients are this simple. So grab a pot and a wooden spoon and lets get to simmering this luscious sauce that Grace and I created as we were writing Growing Up Keto. PRE_ORDER […]

french onion dip

French Onion Dip

French Onion Dip. Do you love it too? I’ve created two versions. One is short and simple, but may mean using a bouillon that has a few questionable ingredients. The second takes a bit longer to make but is super delicious and just as authentic tasting and has […]

Cheddar Broccoli Soup

Cheddar Broccoli Soup

While this Cheddar Broccoli Soup is really simple to make, it’s important to note a few key steps to ensure success. First, don’t skip browning the onions. It adds a depth of flavor that you won’t want to miss. Also, we prefer to cook the broccoli until it’s […]

90 Second Toast

90 Second Toast

Okay, you’ve seen 90-second bread, but hear me out. This is 90-second toast because it’s really pretty awesome toasted, but just kind of ‘meh’ straight out of the microwave. This is the absolute closest I’ve come to something like a toasted English muffin. It’s great with Creamy Skillet […]

Let’s talk about Cholesterol!

Let’s talk about cholesterol. We have so many questions that come in about the effects of keto in cholesterol levels…and we hear about so many doctors that actually warn patients away from the #ketolifestyle because they just don’t know the facts! So…let’s talk about it. Here’s the reference […]

low carb stuffing

Low Carb Stuffing

I’ve been making this low carb stuffing for the last 5 Thanksgivings. We love the sausage, mushrooms, celery, etc., but I’ve changed out the “bread” a few times. I’ve used soul bread and cornbread. The cornbread is by far our favorite! This year, I MAY try a mix […]

Who’s Afraid of Real Food? (My response to claims of keto crotch.)

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.

Free Keto Living Day by Day 28-day, 4 week guide!

Celebrating Sweet G with Grandmother’s Coconut Cream Cake!

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.” 

Week Two Meal Plan, 28-day Guide

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.  

Keeping Food Logs

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 […]
