Sometimes you just have those craving for Chinese take out and of course, that’s not ideal for the keto diet but here’s a way to achieve the same take out taste but its keto approved. By making this keto beef and broccoli in the instant pot you can make it healthy while cutting back on cook time. When cooking in your Instant Pot you’re setting it and forgetting it instead of standing over the stove, so it’s kind of like calling for take out.

Does herbal tea count as water


Made this today using my muffin top baking pan. It is perfect for sandwiches and I don’t have to cut them. That is good because my slicing ability is bad. So one batch makes 2 muffin tops. First batch emptied my coconut supply so I did another batch with double almond flour. Found that the almond flour by itself makes for a good sandwich. The batch with coconut and almond flour is sweeter, reminds me a bit of french toast, still good but not what I would like to have for a roast beef sandwich. Think it will be good with some almond butter on it.
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!

Is carnitine good for kidneys


I have an EXTREMELY ignorant question…. Does tenting mean you just cover it? Or do you actually make it look like a little tent and keep the ends open so the air can get it? I just made this, and just covered it. The bread looked AWESOME after the first 40 minutes but then after covering it it came out a lot flatter. First slice was still pretty yummy, even though I probably should have cooked it a little longer. THANKS!!

Is sugar bad for PCOS


LOWER the oven temperature to 350°F. In a bowl, mix together the eggs, cheese, cream, rosemary, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika until combined. Pour the egg mixture over the Brussels sprouts. Bake for 20 minutes, until bubbly. To get a nicely browned top, turn the oven to broil and broil for 5 minutes, watching carefully to make sure it doesn't burn.
In this lovely Thai salad you can either use canned chicken or use up leftovers from a roast chicken. The peanut butter gives this dish the flavor of chicken satay, with a little bit of a kick from the ginger. This is a low carb meal that is ready in minutes, especially if you use pre-made slaw mix, but if you have time you can make it from scratch. The salad is also low in calories and great if you are watching your weight.
Whether you have a sweet tooth or you just need a quick boost of sweetness now and then, this list of Keto candy recipes can help you satisfy that urge without busting your diet. This list includes everything from child-friendly candies like homemade gummy bears and fudge pieces, to candies that are more suited to adult tastes such as candied pecans and chocolate fat bombs.
Was very pleased with this cookbook overall! Have tried several of the recipes and they have all turned out great. Directions are easy to follow and pictures are gorgeous and vibrant! I think some of the recipes are pretty simple and things most keto people have already tried, but the cookbook has a great beginner's general knowledge that makes keto so easy to do. This is definitely a cookbook for all levels of keto!

Is Bourbon a keto


Cloud bread is a longstanding keto staple. It can be a touch tricky, but it makes a great bread substitute for sandwiches. We’ll show you how to not only make it, but also how to turn it into a great BLT. These do freeze well, so make extras and save for another week! Just make sure you place some freezer paper between the layers so that they don’t stick.

This bread was very good. I have made many keto breads over the past 18 months and I liked the taste, texture and crumb of this one. I did include one big change in making it, though. I always keep powdered egg whites in the pantry to reduce having to find uses for dozens of yolks not utilized in keto recipes. I used a half cup of powdered whites, 1 tsp cream of tartar and 3/4 cup of warm water in my stand mixer. Beat at low speed until all the lumps are dissolved and then at high speed for 6 to 8 minutes. This produced a large bowl full of very stiff whites perfect for standing up to folding into a stiff batter. I buy the powdered eggs online for about $15. A one pound package is the equivalent of 90 non-GMO, USDA certified, USA raised eggs and always on hand. I have found over the years that these are less expensive than fresh eggs with no waste from unused yolks. They are great for meringues, puddings, cakes, etc and can be stirred into batters without reconstituting – and no separating eggs or worrying about errant yolk in the whites. My bread also cooked quicker. I placed it in a preheated 325F oven and it was light brown at 37 minutes. I tented it and 18 minutes later the interior temp was 206F. It was great toasted for breakfast the next morning and I am looking forward to French toast this week, too. Thanks for the recipe!
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 ...
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?

I want to say thank you. I don’t always have time to bake, and this is a life saver, of sorts. My brother is diabetic, and his doctor recommended a low-carb diet; I’m diabetic also, and gluten intolerant. This bread has the most wonderful taste and texture, and is so quick and easy, I’ve already committed the recipe to memory. Even my SO, who is neither gluten free nor diabetic, likes the taste and texture. I did cut down the salt, because like some others, I found the 1/4 teaspoon to be too salty. Other than that, raves and kudos!! We are thrilled, and planning all the different ways we’re going to use this bread. Many thanks!!

Can I juice while intermittent fasting


This keto shepherd's pie casserole is a recipe you’ll make again and again. It’s filling comfort food at it’s finest, and a great dish to prepare when you’re trying to make sure you have leftover. Well-seasoned ground lamb is topped with a creamy cauliflower mash, then baked in the oven until golden. This recipe is a great way to use up any ground meat that you have on hand. We’re using lamb but you could also do this with chicken or beef. Just make sure that the cooked cauliflower is ...
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


I’ve been on Keto for about a week. I’m one of those people who said I could never give carbs or sugar. I’m still not sure that I am, but for week one so far so good. I made your keto bread and it really helped me get through the weekend. I had a brunch to attend at a relative’s house and I was able to bring this bread, toast it up and partake of all the toppings they had to offer. And as I’m typing I’m eating a tuna melt made by frying the bread in butter and topping with cheese and Tuna. I feel like I’m eating a real lunch. So for now, thanks for helping me power on!

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!

Can you make whipped cream with half and half


Hi Kaylee, I’ve substituted raw sunflower seeds ground dry in my bullet for almonds. I found it to taste better. Expect the color to be similar to the color of the seeds. I sub 113g sunflower seeds for every 1 cup of almond flour. As for eggs, shop around. I get pastured eggs for berween $4 to $6.50. Usually, on sale. Like this week, sprouts has buy 1get one free so that’s 2 dozens for $6.50. Even Publix to my surprise will mark down their pastture raised eggs to $3.50/dozen.

My husband was just put on a low carb diet for a health issue he is having. He was really missing bread so I made this for him. He is super, super picky and LOVED this bread. I made two loaves at the same time and froze the second. Just thawed it to eat and it takes the same as when it came out of the oven. The hubs eats a slice, toasted with avocado with breakfast every morning. Thanks for this recipe!

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!
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.
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…

Our favorite sweetener of choice is Stevia. Stevia is a natural substance that is great for baking. It can have a slight aftertaste that some people dislike, so it’s best used with strong flavors like cinnamon.  Or else mix some stevia with some erythritol. The erythritol will cover up the stevia taste and the addition of stevia means you can use less erythritol.

keto diet recipes 14 day


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!
The mustard dressing in this dish gives the chicken a wonderful flavor especially if you let it marinate overnight, but this is optional as you can still enjoy it after just ten minutes! Use whatever greens you like, collard greens, spinach or kale for example, then tuck in and enjoy this warming and satisfying meal. This recipe is also dairy and gluten-free, yet it is rich in flavor and goodness.
Simple replacement (from heavy cream to coconut milk) is adequate in most situations, but in some cases, coconut milk should actually be the go-to! A seafood chowder or creamy broccoli soup does great with coconut milk instead of heavy cream. If you’re looking for more worldly dishes to try at home, consider this coconut Thai soup by Gnom-Gnom or a tom kha gai (coconut chicken soup) by Ketogasm. Both call for coconut milk from the start.

I made this today. I did not have almond flour so I took some slivered almonds and made flour from them in my nutribullet. This turned out fabulous. Only a pinch of salt is necessary. The variations are endless! I don’t do Keto but I will definitely be making this often for everything!! This is a great save if you are out of bread! Thanks so much for this recipe! It is DELISH!

What carbs should I avoid to lose belly fat


This ketofied chicken recipe features pickle juice as the brine, and protein powder as the low-carb breading alternative. The result? Juicy and golden tenders that are a perfect dupe.  Brining and frying are the secrets to cooking flavorful chicken breasts.  Using pickle juice for the brine infuses these chicken tenders with their dill flavor, plus leads to perfectly seasoned meat. Try serving these up with a side of our buffalo coleslaw, and our fire and ice pickles. These chicken strips ...
Thank you so much for your recipe. This is the best keto bread recipe I have come across. There is only one suggestion it’s better to use medium size 8X4 inch pan to get perfect size slices. There is one question., can we replace coconut flour with almond flour completely? If yes what is the quantity for almond flour in this case? Thank you once again.

How many times a day should you eat on keto


Nice and firm. Baked it on the recommended temp, added 6 or 7 minutes. Pressed the middle and it was great. I let it cool. What was nice about it was obviously it’s low carb bread…hurray for that, but it cut well. Got 18 slices easily about 1/2 inch thick without breakage. Most importantly, it wasn’t greasy, or almond tasting overload, just delicious.

What is poor food


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 ...

Is Coconut good on a keto diet


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.

How am I JUST coming across this recipe after almost two years of being keto? This is THE ONE!! After I made the first loaf, I knew this was going to be used for my Thanksgiving stuffing. I did a test run, and, no lie, you cannot tell that this is a keto stuffing! I’m downright giddy! So I made six loaves of this amazing bread today and put them in the freezer for Thanksgiving. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this recipe. I’m making two more loaves tomorrow for sandwiches and toast. Oh, and I used all the ingredients, including the optional ones, and the results were perfect. Hands down the best keto sandwich bread out there (and I’ve literally tried dozens).

How many calories will kick you out of a fast


This recipe uses cauliflower to stretch the lobster without losing the wonderful flavor. It’s so delicious you can eat it straight out of the bowl or wrapped in romaine lettuce. We highly suggest using mayo made from olive, coconut, or avocado oil instead of ones made using sunflower or canola oil. Keep a jar of this healthy avocado mayo in your fridge to make quick and easy keto recipes.
I have a question I hope you can set me straight. I was putting the almond flour in my dry measuring cup and it didn’t seem right. I checked around the internet and found someone who said always weigh almond flour. So, I did. 8oz. = 1 cup so 8oz almond flour. It looks like enough but so much more than one dry measure cup. I got as far as doing the food processor part and realized I needed more eggs. So, I’m kinda in holding until I go to the store so, I thought I’d ask.. have I made a terrible mistake and wasted a lot of supplies or am I cool? 

Can you eat mcdonalds on keto


Really miss bread! Made per recipe including options. Looked really good. Sliced good. But it had spots and tasted very much like eggs. Could not get past egg taste. Next day made grilled cheese sandwiches. Texture was good and sandwich looked great. Again tasted too much like eggs. May try again using less sweetner and lots less eggs. However I will be trying your other recipes.


This way of eating has made me feel better in so many ways. I just had such a craving For the texture of cake or bread last night that I had a piece of cake and a sandwich wrap! I knew I had to find a way to satisfy that craving and considered eating a sandwich once a week. Now I can do it without too many carbs. Thanks for taking the time to make it come out right. No more carb BINGES for me.
Zucchini. If you like the crisp freshness of zucchini, then turn it into a zucchini boat. A zucchini boat is like a healthier, keto-friendly version of an open-faced sandwich. Simply scoop out most of the contents of the zucchini and fill it with your favorite savory ingredients. Need some ideas? Try out our Broccoli Chicken Zucchini Boats or our Sausage Zucchini Boats. You can even make two of them and turn it into a sub sandwich. If you do this, however, make sure you have extra napkins handy — it will get messy.

Does Hashimotos disease qualify for disability


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.

Finally made this recipe, is my second bread recipe I’ve made and the top is nice but the inside always feels moist … I am putting it in the oven a bit more to see if it dries out, is that the texture that it should have because of the butter or what? I liked the flavor! Just not sure of how is supposed to be inside. I haven’t watched the video yet. Thanks!!

Chicken enchiladas made with a green chile sauce is one of my favorite dinners.  Trying to recreate enchiladas with low-carb tortillas can be a pain, especially if you try and make them yourself.  With these, we've used softened cabbage leaves to roll up the filling.  It's an easy and nutritious option! The enchiladas are stuffed with shredded chicken, onions, and shredded cheese.  They're dolloped with a sauce made from chicken broth, sour cream, and green chilis.  The result is flavorful, ...
Beating the egg whites is the answer to the denseness that comes with making an almond flour bread. I’ve made countless baked goods using almond flour and the main problem I’ve encountered is how dense the finished product is. The fluffy egg whites in unison with the high dosage of baking powder do a good job of getting this loaf nice and fluffy and adding some air pockets into the loaf. This makes for a better tasting bread.

This recipe has its roots in Puerto Rican cuisine and, with only a few ingredients, is a cheap yet filling meal. Steak and onions is a true favorite with most meat lovers and with the seasoning on this meat the whole dish is bound to be delicious. For a slightly sweeter taste, try using red onions instead of white. This is a lovely filling dish to serve for lunch on a chilly day.

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


Love this recipe! I use all the optional ingredients. A tsp Monkfruit sweetener. Two Tbsp psyllium powder for the best results – firm and slices easily. Tried one without psyllium (I ran out) but it didn’t hold together as well. I wrap the loaf in a lint-free cotton towel and freeze. You don’t need a food processor. I beat the egg whites, move them to a separate bowl, then use the mixing bowl for dry ingredients and proceed. Seems to work just fine and with less cleanup. My favorite way to eat this is to toast it. Delicious, thank you!
