Hi Anita, I double checked my carton egg whites. 3/4 cup of egg whites is equivalent to 4 large whole eggs, not 4 large egg whites. Mine has a chart for converting whole eggs, and the conversion for egg whites only is below the chart. It says 2 tablespoons of liquid egg whites are equivalent to the egg white of 1 whole egg. So, 12 large egg whites would be 24 tablespoons, or 1 1/2 cups as written in the recipe. Hope this helps!
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.
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.

I had some Ricotta cheese that I needed to use so I decided to make this recipe. Although I wasn’t exactly sure how to calculate 1 1/2 lb to cups, I guesstimated using the Ricotta that I had which was about 24 oz. It turned out delicious!!! I also used an emulsifier instead of a blender. I didn’t want to have to scrape off the sides because I didn’t want to waste any of this deliciousness. I used strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries. OH MY–DELISH!!!! Thanks so much for putting this recipe out there for us.
Hi Maya, I have made this twice and the first was actually closer than the second! The second one was raised really well when I put the foil on for the last 10-15 mins of cook time and when I took it out 12 mins later it had completely fallen! Now it is almost wet in the center though there are air pockets in it, it’s very odd. The first loaf was pretty flat the whole time and I am pretty sure that was because I didn’t have my egg whites whipped enough but they were spot on for the second loaf. I am also thinking it might be my baking powder after reading some of the comments. I plan to try again and just use a baking soda/cream of tartar mix rather than the baking powder. Any other suggestions? Anyone? LOL!

Creamy risotto, fluffy couscous, and succulent pilaf- all things you can’t enjoy when you’re living the Keto lifestyle, right? Nope! If you haven’t discovered cauliflower rice already, let me be the first to sing the praises of this fantastic ingredient. I’ve put together a list of my favorite Keto-friendly cauliflower rice recipes so you can get to enjoying this fantastic (and nutritious!) ingredient asap!

Well, I made your Keto bread and was disappointed. It tasted very eggy! I over cooked it like you said and it was still too moist. (I even used thermometer). I’m wondering about maybe an altitude issue since I live in Denver. If I make it again, I’ll try less egg whites. But it still didn’t taste anything like bread. I’m having trouble switching to Paleo! Help.

Are tomatoes high in carbs


This is BY FAR the best Keto Bread recipe anywhere, I make this weekly, and today I tried the same recipe only adding 2T swerve and 2T Raisins (adding 14 grams of carbs to the loaf but well worth it!) to make an Irish Soda Bread and I swear you cannot tell a difference between it and traditional Irish Soda Bread. I am going to try this recipe adding some shredded cheddar next week for a cheese bread, thanks for this versatile keto bread recipe that doesn’t taste like eggs!

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.
Anyone who has gone without sugar whether on keto or low carb, knows the pains – yes, sometimes hunger pains. But seriously, that sugar craving struggle is REAL. As we mention often here on Keto Dirty, our goal is to help you find ways to create a keto lifestyle. We blur the lines of traditional keto where you may not use certain ingredients or may not drink diet drinks. 
Deb, Thank you so much for leaving a comment – we’re happy to hear you enjoyed the bread! Yes, the yeast in this recipe is for aroma/flavor. Unfortunately we aren’t at high altitude so we don’t have experience baking in that way. We’ve read that it can be helpful to slightly decrease baking powder, slightly increase liquids, and increase oven temperature by 25F. Please let us know how it goes if you try the recipe with any of these changes, and sorry we couldn’t be more help with this!

Is peppermint tea a herbal tea


Hi Mindy, That sounds very odd. The salted butter is probably why it was too salty, but I think one of your ingredients must have gone bad, because the bread shouldn’t have a bitter or sour taste at all. Or did you use baking soda instead of baking powder? That would taste both bitter and sour, so that could be it. It needs to be baking powder, not baking soda. Hope you’ll try again!

What happens when you dont eat enough carbs


The most common reason that any bread falls is that it needed to bake for longer. That being said, I’ll be perfectly honest – sometimes this keto bread recipe falls anyway, even despite doing everything else right. Fortunately this isn’t a huge deal because it still tastes delicious – IF you baked it for long enough and the center is cooked through.

How many eggs can I eat a day to lose weight


Wanted to add to my last comment, forgot to give you the 5 stars it deserves! Don’t know why but cooking on the griddle gave a more eggy taste , like french toast and not as light.the micro gives best texture and gives the look of sliced bread. I’m a celiac who lived with a carboholic. This bread will be my new go to. Fresh bread in 2 minutes and great when it’s too hot to bake. Thank you, thank you

What is the fastest way to lower LDL cholesterol


If you’ve been dairy free and struggling to find a keto treat that doesn’t include dairy, this is the pie for you! Decadent and dreamy, melt in your mouth creamy chocolate pie with a hint of vanilla and coconut to satisfy your dessert needs without the dairy. This pie is so silky that your friends and family won’t believe it’s dairy free! The main ingredient is coconut cream, which can lend a flavor of coconut, but it is paired perfectly with 70% dark chocolate that is both keto friendly ...

I made dressing/stuffing out of this bread! I cut the bread into slices, then cut the slices into cubes. I put them on a metal pan and into my toaster oven on low temperature and let them crisp up. It takes a good while, but they DO get crisp! Then I have my croutons for the dressing. The dressing I made was delicious. I think the next time I make the bread to use for croutons I’m going to add onion powder and sage to the mixture before baking so the croutons will be seasoned some before I begin making the dressing! Love this bread! It is the most like wheat flour bread that I have tried! Thanks Maya!
I bought this book based on how many good reviews there are and felt that there needed to be a real voice. This book is misleading. Easy Keto for Busy people translates to 'bland food that is kind keto with net carbs that are pretty high for each meal and usually take an hour-ish for prep and cooking." Her portion sizes for meals are confusing as it says something serves 4, but the food is barely enough to fill 2 adults. Which means you're eating double the net carb per meal as the breakdown suggests. Save your money, borrow it from the library, then return it and look elsewhere.
Get some sweet corn extract and follow this recipe. All you’ll need is many of the same healthy ingredients that we’ve already talked about like butter, almond flour, flaxseed meal, and eggs. However, the secret ingredient that takes these keto cornbread mini loaves to another level is jalapenos. They give these mini loaves an extra kick for your taste buds and your well being.

Can I eat rice noodles on Candida Diet


If you are like me and are a great fan of tuna salad, here is a fantastic recipe for you to try! Make these for a tasty lunch and you will really enjoy the combination of soft and creamy tuna salad with the zingy taste of the pickles. Using small pickles would also make these ‘sandwiches’ perfect as party food. If you don’t like pickles you can substitute cucumber, but you will lose some of the flavor.

Can I drink milk on keto


A Tex-Mex style casserole packed with bell pepper, green onion, cilantro, and jalapeno, then topped with cheddar cheese. Great served with a dollop of sour cream, or even extra jalapeno if you can handle the heat! If you love Mexican flavors, and meatloaf, then this recipe will be one you enjoy too. To make this meal fast we used a food processor, but you could also chop everything by hand if you don’t happen to have one. You want the vegetables to be a chunky, colorful, and flavor-packed ...

How can I lose weight fast with hypothyroidism


Rarely a day goes by that I don’t have eggs. Packed with protein and incredibly versatile, eggs are my idea of a true superfood. But don’t take my word for it- this list of 35 Keto egg recipes shows how easy they are to include in almost every meal. Whether fried, poached, boiled, or scrambled, this list has a Keto-friendly egg recipe for any occasion.
I haven’t tried this recipe with anything other than cream cheese. The cream cheese is a pretty integral part of this recipe and is something I consider a “keto staple.” With that said, you could try using mascarpone cheese as a substitute. Or, take full-fat cottage cheese, blend it up in the food processor or blender, and use that as a substitute. Whatever you do choose as a substitute, make sure it has plenty of fat in it. Hope this helps!

Can you put any yeast in the mixture? And if you did, would it help it rise more in addition to tasing more “yeasty”? I have been making (with great results) a browner, wheat colored bread from a recipe called Diedre’s For Real Low Carb Bread. It uses yeast and only has one rise after kneading with my dough hook attachment on my mixer. I would like to try some white bread.

I had the same problem. Everything blended beautifully, rose in oven, then fell. Toothpick came out clean after 45 min of baking. I let it cool and then cut into it this morning and it has raw spots throughout the loaf. I am so disappointed because I killed a dozen eggs to make it and really don’t want to do it again. I wonder if the oven needs to be warmer and the cooking time needs to be increased?

What can I eat on a keto lunch


Eggplant. Many eggplants are big enough that you can cut them crosswise and end up with a slice the size of a bread bun. Grill them or bake them and make a sandwich or open-faced sandwich out of them with your favorite keto ingredients. However, keep in mind that the eggplant will be tender after you cook it so it won’t hold up as well as the other bread alternatives.

How can I drop 20 pounds in a week


This recently published cookbook is penned by Jennifer Marie Garza, who dealt with yo-yo dieting throughout her life until she discovered keto. She wanted to share her positive experience (and her love of recipe building) with others, so she even started a blog and a couple of crazy successful Facebook groups where fans flock for her delicious recipes and to cheer each other on. Given her keto journey thus far, a keto cookbook seems like a totally fitting next endeavor.

Is Bacon bad for diabetics


Hi Jen, It sounds like it needed to bake for longer – this is why it sunk and was still moist. The timing varies by ovens and even different pans. I hope you’ll try it again and just keep it in there for longer. You can cover the top if it starts to brown too much. For the one you made, depending on how moist it was in the middle, you may be able to salvage it somewhat by pan frying the slices.
Study - Gut Health: The oleic acid content of macadamia nuts may help prevent ulcerative colitis (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) In one study, performed by the European Journal of Gastroenterology & Hepatology, researchers looked at participants who consumed daily oleic acid versus those who did not - found that those who did consume daily oleic acid were 89% less likely to have ulcerative colitis
Hi I made the Easy paleo keto bread 5 ingredients. It was moist, texture was good but it didn’t turn out completely white, more like a pale yellow and the crust was overdone. I opted for honey as my sweetner because this bread is for my nephew who has autism and we want to keep it as natural as possible. I baked the bread exactly at 325 for 40mins uncovered and then another 40mins covered (tent). What could I do next time to achieve a white bread with golden crust?

Hi Maya, I’m new to your website and I’m anxious to try out this bread recipe. I’m helping my 27 year old son lose some weight. He’s on some pretty potent medication that has caused him to crave carbs thus putting on quite a bit of weight over the past few years. Since I’m his caregiver and also a Certified Nutritionist, I’m looking for some healthy alternatives to make his transition a bit easier and he loves bread.
Because sardines are a good source of protein and B vitamins, they really are brain food! They are quick and easy to prepare and in this dish the olives add a lovely contrast in texture and flavor. Black olives are very healthy and the Kalamata ones are the best, but you can use whatever ones you have. This is a very low carb meal but full of taste and goodness and so keto-friendly!

Can I eat eggs everyday on keto


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?

keto recipes chicken breast


Salmon is one of the healthiest fish you can eat, packed with omega 3 and healthy fats, but because it is fatty, it takes strong flavors like ginger to help cut through this. This dish looks so good and yet it can be ready in half an hour, so it would make an impressive meal for a dinner party or for a family lunch. Cooking the salmon in foil helps the fish to absorb all the extra flavor of the garlic and lemon too.

Is Lemon a keto


The French Toast Bake recipe looks much easier than any other "french toast" type recipes I've seen, and I can't wait to try it! As well as the Faux Oatmeal (if you can't tell, I'm a sweets and breakfast person). All the recipes have nutritional information (surprisingly, some diet-related cookbooks don't have that information!) and the photos are very nice - and they look like what they are supposed to be!
