Carbs in Veggies

Image
Honestly, if you are eating all your GREEN veggies (& Cauliflower), It just doesn't matter how many carbs you are eating! I heard Dr. Eric Berg say one time that he had not ever heard of someone getting fat by eating salads/veggies! So true! However, don't think you add those orange (carrots, sweet potatoes) or yellows (corn, potatoes) to the mix! Those will increase your carb count in the wrong way!

Every Day Is Another Chance...

Since Thanksgiving is over, don't beat yourself up over your 'mistakes' because every day is a new chance! You can do this!!

Happy Thanksgiving

Image
This is my last post this week because of traveling 'home' for the holiday. I wish you all a Very Happy Thanksgiving! Remember eating Keto is a lifestyle, not a diet. The holidays may seem like they will be tricky, but you just plan for them and you'll be just fine! There are always Meat & Veggies at the table. I will be bringing a Meat 'Stuffing' (my mother-in-laws recipe with a few Keto twists) & I thought I was bringing a Cauliflower Stuffing until I just saw an Instagram post last night where someone used Pork Rinds as their bread... OMGosh, I will be trying that recipe this year! And, I always bring dessert so that I can enjoy something sweet too! So, my Pumpkin Custard Pie (Pennsylvania Dutch style) and I'm trying @FoodDreamer's Goey Pecan Pie this year too!
So bottom line - Enjoy yourself! Don't Stress! Make do with what you've got and when the holiday is over, get back on track!
Chat with you next week! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

Chocolate Filled Pumpkin Bread

Image
You guys, I made this yesterday and posted on Instagram with a HOLLER out to Cristina Culp at The Castaway Kitchen.... This is the best pumpkin bread I have found since going Keto!! It did come out thin, but it is so moist and delicious! I didn't find the recipe on her site yet, it came through the newsletter that she sends out, but I did ask her if she has a link so I can post it here! If she does, I'll be back to edit this post with the link!

How To Boil Eggs in a Pressure Cooker ("Instant Pot")

Image
We love boiled eggs at my house. We eat them in our salads, made into deviled eggs, or just plain as a snack. The only issue w/ boiled eggs is the peeling process... especially fresh eggs!! I have tried many techniques including adding a ton of salt to the boiling water (which worked pretty good) but, since I have found the Pressure Cooker method - this is hands down the way to go!! These eggs peel like a dream and you won't overcook them!

Pour 1 cup of water in the bottom of your Pressure Cooker.

Place the basket of eggs (as many as you want) into the pot.

Close the lid, set the cooker for manual High pressure and for the minutes you desire (5min.).

It will take the cooker approx. 5 min. to build to pressure and then 5 min. to cook. Let the pressure naturally reduce for an additional 5 min. after the cooking cycle is completed. Then do a quick pressure release. That should be approx. 15 min. total.

Place the hot eggs into cold water to halt the cooking process. You can peel imme…

Chicken & Keto Dumpling Soup

Image
This was a perfect soup for this weekend! I have a huge soup cookbook from my pre-Keto days and every soup I've made from it was absolutely delicious. In my opinion, making soups Keto-friendly is pretty easy to do. Just swap out the non-Keto-friendly ingredients for Keto-friendly ingredients. For instance, in the soup: No 'real' dumplings, no corn, no flour to thicken it up, no noodles, no rice, no potatoes. Just added our favorite veggies: Broccoli and Green Beans. Can you imagine? It actually called for dumplings, noodles, rice, & potatoes! Wow, talk about Carb overload.... and my son absolutely LOVES it that way. He was very disappointed to see this version. However, the rest of us thought it was pretty darn good!
