Keto Raspberry Ice Cream

Keto Raspberry Ice Cream

Here is a quick and easy recipe to satisfy that sweet tooth without sacrificing flavour. 

Raspberries are keto friendly because they are very high in fiber, which essentially cuts their carb content in half. So if you are looking for a keto-friendly, gluten-free, low carb, refined sugar-free healthy and very tasty frozen treat, this recipe only has 7 net carbs! I keep my carbs at around 20, and I was still able to fit this in my day.

Ingredients:

7 Tbsps 35% Heavy Whipping Cream (or full fat canned coconut milk)

1 Cup Frozen Raspberries

1/4 Cup Water

1/4 Cup Cinnamon

Instructions:

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth…yep, that’s it!

I decided to explore the Keto diet for a number of reasons. I definitely would have described myself as a critic, admittedly because I was misinformed, and I didn’t fully understand how it worked, or why I should consider it.

Before I started Keto, I was tired, like ALL THE TIME. I just couldn’t seem to get enough rest to lose that lethargic feeling. Within a week of being in ketosis, I had so much energy. Usually by 2 pm, I was done for the day, and would desperately need a nap, but that changed. I slept so much better, too. I woke up feeling rested. Also as someone who suffers from PCOS (symptoms caused by a hormonal imbalance), I would have really bad night sweats. It was like my body couldn’t regulate my temperature. These seemed to disappear as well. Bonus: I was also finally losing weight again after plateauing for over a year!

Keto isn’t for everyone, but it is definitely working for me! If you are considering the Keto diet, make sure to talk to your doctor and/or nutritionist, as well as do your research. There is a lot of bad information out there.

Okay! Onto my favorite keto snack. I actually discovered this by accident as a way of trying to meet my fats quota, but it is absolutely delicious! For a girl who has a sweet tooth, I needed to come up with something that would satisfy that didn’t involve unpleasant sugar substitutes.

Ingredients:

1 Tbsp Coconut Oil

1 Tbsp Coconut Butter

1 Tbsp Almond Butter

1 Svg(about 15) Dark Chocolate Chips (70-80%)

5 Tbsp 35% Heavy Cream (canned coconut milk if you need a dairy-free option)

Instructions:

1) In a small microwave safe bowl, add coconut oil, coconut butter, almond butter, and chocolate chips. Microwave about 40 seconds.

2) Stir until well blended. Add heavy cream and mix well. I used a coffee frother.

3) Place in refrigerator and chill for about 2 hours until solid.

Healthy Oven Fried Chicken- Gluten-Free, Paleo, Keto, Low Carb

Healthy Oven Fried Chicken- Gluten-Free, Paleo, Keto, Low Carb

I have a confession. I love fried chicken! I’m not talking KFC or Church’s Chicken, and definitely not Chick-Fil-A. I mean home-made crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside southern fried chicken.

It’s probably been twenty years since I’ve last tasted it. So, needless to say, I was having a craving. And since I’m in the Keto phase of my eating plan, I thought, “This is my chance!” But I chickened out (no pun intended) and opted to do a baked version instead.

Regular fried chicken calls for flour, which is not an ingredient that I can use with my eating plan. I simply replaced flour for almond flour for the coating.  It gave the chicken a thin crispy layer.

You’ll want to set up a little station line that includes 1-2 beaten eggs, a shallow dish of seasoned almond flour, and a greased baking dish.

Dip each piece of chicken in the egg, then roll it in the almond flour, and place in the dish.  Bake at 400 degrees for 45-55 minutes.

Ingredients:

8-10 Bone-in, skin on chicken legs

1-2  Eggs, beaten( I think 1 is plenty)

1 Cup Almond flour

1/2 Tbsp of Seasoned Salt

1/2 Tbsp of Paprika

Instructions:

1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease a large baking dish.

2) In a small bowl, beat egg and set aside.

3) In a shallow dish mix almond flour, season salt, and paprika.

4) Dip chicken in egg, then in almond flour, fully coating it, and place in baking dish.

5). Bake for 45-55 minutes.  Flipping halfway through.

Shepherd’s Pie Recipe : GF, Paleo, Keto, Low-Carb and still tastes good!

Shepherd’s Pie Recipe : GF, Paleo, Keto, Low-Carb and still tastes good!

Okay, so about a week and a half ago, I started a new eating plan. Yes, of course, I want to lose these last 20 lbs of baby weight, but I’ve also been feeling really lethargic, and my hormones were going haywire. I’m talking night sweats, break outs, and uncontrollable sugar cravings!

So I knew that something had to give. I had been wanting to try intermittent fasting for a while. The benefits intrigued me and I knew that it made sense to eat that way. However, with this new eating plan, I also had to incorporate some modified Keto. For someone who loves sweets….this was going to be tough! But honestly, it was a lot easier than I thought.

Last night, I modifed a shepherd’s pie recipe so that it fit into my plan. I was pleasantly surprised, because it is very yummy!

So let me share this simple, healthy recipe with you.

 

Ingredients:

1 head of cauliflower

1 lb of ground turkey

1 large zucchini

2 tbsp ghee

Pink Himalayans salt and ground pepper (to taste)

1 tbspn Italian seasoning

 

Instructions:

1). In a medium sauce pan, cook cauliflower  in water until soft. Drain, mash, season with salt & pepper, mix in ghee. Set aside.

2.) In a large pan, fry ground turkey, season with salt and pepper. When it’s fully cooked, place turkey in a bread pan in an even layer.

3.) Dice zucchini and layer on top of turkey. Season with salt pepper and Italian seasoning.

4.) Add mashed cauliflower in an even layer. Push down if necessary.

5) Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!

Healthy Slow Cooker Southwestern Chili

I don’t know if it’s the cold weather or the upcoming Super Bowl, but I just really wanted a nice warm bowl of chili. This isn’t a strictly vegetarian recipe, but it does not use any meat, and it is easy to make vegetarian if you want to by substituting water or vegetable stock for the bone broth. I made a batch of bone broth, and it seemed like an easy way to include it in a recipe.  It is super easy! Just throw all of the following ingredients into your slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 7-8 hours.

Ingredients:

2 cups Red Kidney Beans (drained and rinsed)

1 can diced tomatoes with juice

1 yellow onion (diced)

1 cup frozen corn

1 green bell pepper

1 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp black pepper

2 tsp sea salt

1 cup quinoa

4 cups bone broth (water, or vegetable stock)

Top with your favorite garnishes. Mmm.. that hit the spot! Oh..and go Pats!!
