Avocado toast is becoming more and more popular nowadays as it is a filling and nutritious dish for breakfast or lunch. This one has the additional flavor from the tomato and the chopped nuts give a lovely twist to the texture, however, if you have a nut intolerance, just leave them out! Serve this on your choice of keto bread for a super lunch idea.

This is a quick and easy curry recipe as the fish takes only a few minutes to cook, so it would be perfect for a chilly evening when you don’t have time to spend too long cooking. The salmon is rich in healthy fats and if you don’t have green beans then you could use spinach or asparagus or even some broccoli florets to give you a warming and satisfying meal.

What can I eat with J pouch


I’m so glad you love it, Tanya! Yes, $17 sounds like a lot for xanthan gum. I use this one here. Swerve is sweeter than erythritol, so you’d need less of it – I have a conversion chart here. You’re absolutely right about the xanthan gum and texture – it will make the bread more chewy. It will still be more of a “light and fluffy” bread, but definitely less muffin-like with the xanthan gum. I haven’t tried add-ins yet – let me know how it goes if you try!

Capsaicin, one of the compounds responsible for the spicy flavor of jalapenos, has been found to improve our health in many ways. The current research on capsaicin suggests that it enhances cardiovascular health significantly, increases metabolic rate, and improves body composition. So, if you like spicy food, then you are in luck — especially when you eat this keto cornbread.

If I did not know that this was not bread made from wheat flour, I would not have known the difference – taste-wise. I added all of the ‘optional’ ingredients. Now, this loaf is not nearly the size of a regular loaf of bread. But it is incredibly filling. I slice it a touch thinner than 1/2 inch to make, what looks like, a finger sandwich. It satisfies my love for sandwiches and fills my up.

How many eggs should I eat for breakfast on keto


There are delicious lactose-free dairy products out there, including cream cheese, sour cream, and even some yogurts. Furthermore, the higher the fat concentration in your dairy (e.g. butter, ghee, heavy cream, hard cheeses like parmesan and romano), the less lactose there usually is in the dairy product. But if you’re sensitive to all forms of dairy, you might need a vegan alternative, even if you’re not vegan.
This sounds amazing and I’ll be making it for breakfast this morning, but I think the carb count is a little off. I think it’s closer to 3g of total net carbs. I could be wrong, but there are almost 3g of net carbs in the 3 tbsp of almond flour, plus add a little for the baking powder and the egg? Maybe I’m counting wrong, or maybe it’s just my almond flour that’s higher than yours…

intermittent fasting every other day


Here is another great idea for a healthy and satisfying meal for the whole family! The creamy tomato sauce helps to boost the flavors of the meatballs and the fried cabbage is a good alternative as a side dish. This recipe would also work using other ground meats such as pork or turkey, so it can accommodate any dietary restrictions you may have to cater for.

Is it safe to fast every other day


Theresa, Thanks so much for your comment! We aren’t sure what you mean though; our recipe above calls for 2 cups (224g) of almond flour, which is the same measurement you mentioned from the brand you use (112g per 1 cup X 2 cups = 224g). It may be helpful to reach out to a particular almond flour manufacturer if you have a product-specific question. We hope this helps and happy keto baking!

How do you starve without being hungry


I am a little confused about beating the egg whites with a hand mixer. I used 12 large egg whites as the recipe says. However, I did not add cream of tartar as I have none. I have been beating these egg whites for almost 40 minutes with an electric hand mixer and I still have not yet come to the consistency as your photo shows for stiff egg whites. So my questions are, is this amount of time normal for beating the egg whites? And what amount of time would you recommend if this is not the normal amount of time?
My bread came out a teeny bit “eggy”…which wasn’t bad, I still enjoyed it. Maybe some egg yolk made it in the batter??? Anyway, the slight egginess made me think of French toast. So with the last few pieces, that’s what I made. I mixed an egg, heavy cream, and a little vanilla to coat the bread…used browned butter to sub for syrup…then topped off with Swerve confectioners sugar. It was delicious! 

I made 2 loaves, but put them into the oven at the same time. This made the first loaf rested for 30 minutes. It raised up above the pan.! I used the xanthan gum and the cream of tartar. The second one did not rise as it did not sit. I baked the tall one for 43 minutes while the lower one was only 35 minutes. We LOVE IT! Tastes just like regular bread.
Hi Danielle, The bread will not rise without the baking powder, but you could try it if you don’t mind that. Some people make homemade baking powder with baking soda, cream of tartar, and arrowroot powder. But, arrowroot is still a very small amount of starch. Divided among the slices, it’s actually fewer carbs than some of the other ingredients (e.g. almond flour has a small amount of carbs also).
If you’re not a fan of baking but you’re a fan of eating bread, there are places to get keto friendly bread these days. If you’re lucky, you may be able to find a loaf of “Paleo Bread” in the freezer section at Whole Foods Market. This bread is going to cost you over $10 per loaf, but it is made of good ingredients and is a few grams of carbs per slice. There’s also rumors of ALDI carrying a new Zero-Carb bread, but it sells out fast and we haven’t been able to review it. Hopefully in the near future there will be more local buying options for low carb bread, but for now, those are your only options.

Is it okay to freeze cheesecake


I remember eating coleslaw at cookouts growing up. It was always heavy with way too much mayo and not enough flavor. This Keto chicken coleslaw is worth giving coleslaw a second look. For starters, it doesn’t go overboard on the mayonnaise. Instead, the cabbage (a mix of red and white for color and crunch) is tossed with a light and tangy dressing made from Keto mayo and fruity white balsamic vinegar.

Is drinking Himalayan salt water good for you


I so miss bread fresh from the oven (I’m going to be adding the yeast)! You are absolutely correct about beaten egg whites creating air pockets. My family has always made buttermilk pancakes from scratch and we always separate the eggs, beat the whites to soft peaks and fold them in at the last minute. The pancakes rise beautifully! Have you tried this with your keto pancakes?

The somewhat sweet roasted pumpkin combined with salty cheese is an amazing experience. This salad is somewhat higher in carbs than we would normally post, so keep in mind that it’s better for those of you who are eating within a shorter time period each day. You can lessen the carbs by reducing the amount of pumpkin used and replace it with a lower-carb vegetable like cauliflower or zucchini. Every time we post a recipe with halloumi, we get a lot of questions about it. Look, halloumi is ...
Hi John, You could possible try a hand mixer in a bowl instead of the food processor, but I haven’t tried it, so can’t vouch for the results. Most likely the bread would not be as tall because the mixer would completely deflate the first half of the egg whites when you add them to the batter. The second half should be folded so that part will be find. If you try with a bowl and hand mixer, let me know how that goes.
