Low Carb Chocolate Avocado Ice Cream

This is delicious, healthy, full of good fat and only about 15 grams of net carbs per serving. I recommend you use the, ‘Hu Kitchen Dark Chocolate Bar’ –they are super clean, made of only cacao, coconut sugar and cocoa butter. This makes 2 servings (although it’s one serving for me). If you want toContinue reading “Low Carb Chocolate Avocado Ice Cream”

Caesar Salad Recipe

Nicole’s Homemade Mayonnaise Facing the ugly truth, I had to give up Hellman’s, being 92% soybean oil. But I loved the taste, texture, consistency, look, smell, and feel of Hellman’s, to say nothing of BLTs, and couldn’t find a substitute I liked. Once I did, I realize it’s not the bread but the Hellman’s thatContinue reading “Caesar Salad Recipe”

Are you Clean about your KETO or just talking Dirty?

Dirty vs Clean Keto The Ketogenic Diet is a strategic macro-nutrient distribution of daily food intake designed to switch the body’s metabolic state from Glycolysis, whereby glucose from carbohydrate intake fuels the body’s energy needs, to Ketosis, whereby fat is burned for fuel in the absence of the carbohydrates.

The Gift of Magnesium

Can we talk about magnesium for a minute?  Call me crazy, but I can get quite effusive when discussing this powerhouse macro mineral.  In the pantheon of essential minerals, magnesium, in my book, is nothing short of a superstar.  Of course, all the essential minerals are necessary for good health, and they all deserve theirContinue reading “The Gift of Magnesium”

MEAL PREP: Turkey Tacos Right now is a really amazing time to be low carb, gluten, and grain free.  There are numerous companies that make alternate versions of your favorite carbs, and these days you won’t lose all of your friends for replacing rice, mashed potatoes, and pizza crust with cauliflower (only most of your friends).  I’mContinue reading “Turkey Tacos”

Stuffed Cabbage

MEAL PREP: Stuffed Cabbage My favorite cheat meal is a burrito. 90% of the time I follow the Paleo diet, and only eat meat, vegetables, eggs, nuts and seeds. I don’t eat grain, beans, or dairy, and a burrito is all of those things wrapped up in another thing that I don’t eat. So it’sContinue reading “Stuffed Cabbage”

One Skillet Cashew Chicken Stir-fry

MEAL PREP: One Skillet Cashew Chicken Stir-fry Wedding gifts keep pouring in and I recently received a beautiful Le Crueset cast iron pan in sexy-red (image to follow). With proper maintenance, a good cast iron pan is indestructible! This thing is a work of art, and I was really excited to use it.  So I wentContinue reading “One Skillet Cashew Chicken Stir-fry”

Beef and Chicken and Broccoli

MEAL PREP: Beef and Chicken and Broccoli I like Chinese food as much as everyone else does, but when you get Chinese takeout it’s full of crappy oils, crappy ingredients, and leaves you feeling just like it, crappy.  Luckily, you can quickly whip up these flavors at home by swapping out their crappy ingredients withContinue reading “Beef and Chicken and Broccoli”
