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
This was so yummy! Great for sandwiches. I’m a total amateur when it comes to baking and I was so sure I’d messed this up. The instructions seem a little intimidating- I usually avoid all recipes that even involve separating eggs. I don’t have a hand mixer so used my immersion blender in too wide/flat of a bowl for fluffing the eggs, so they didn’t get thoroughly “fluffed.” But despite that, the consistency of the bread was great. It was just shorter than I’d have expected. So happy I tried this! Great instructions and tips.
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!

How long does bone broth take to work


Hi Barbara, I haven’t tried making this recipe into a lemon blueberry bread, but what you’d want to do is add a bit more sweetener (a few tablespoons? depending on how sweet you want it), lemon zest (not lemon juice to avoid too much liquid), and fold in blueberries carefully to avoid breaking down the whites. As for the other recipe you tried, it shouldn’t be gritty (though this one you’re looking at is definitely more fluffy) – did you use a super finely ground blanched almond flour?

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.

Why is Dairy bad for MS


You’ve heard of green tea ice cream, but have you heard of avocado coconut ice cream?! It’s a healthy source of fats and great for curbing those sugar cravings. The toasted coconut flakes nicely compliment the smooth flavor of avocado. This ice cream is great for a girl’s night or to snack on during a Netflix binge. There is quite a bit of prep time involved, and an ice cream maker is required. You can substitute Allulose for another preferred sugar substitute. Yields 8 servings of ...
Maya, I can’t tell you how excited I am to find this recipe! I have three young cats who are on a raw diet. In my previous life I was a home economics major and was taught not to waste anything. So from making their raw food I have the byproducts of egg whites and chicken bones and skin. It all gets frozen for future use. I use the bones and skin to make my own bone broth but I have egg whites out the ying yang! They are frozen in jars with the measurement of the contents on the lid. Now I’m going to thaw some and make bread! Have you tried making french toast with this?

What is the best age to freeze your eggs


Here is another great recipe for a tasty and filling lunch that only takes 20 minutes to make – perfect for a busy day! Bacon and cabbage team up really well and the added ground meat adds to the protein level. You can use whatever ground meat you have, so try adding chicken or beef for a change. This recipe gives you quite a lot of food, so this would be good to keep for lunches several days in a row.
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.
Hi Aamash, Sometimes egg whites from a carton are more difficult to beat to stiff peaks, though I do use those all the time myself. Usually it’s best to add some cream of tartar when beating especially if you are using the whites from a carton. This will help them come to stiff peaks. Having the egg whites at room temperature also helps, versus cold from the fridge.
Stir fries and sautees are so quick to make that they are the best meals when you are short of time for cooking. This one only takes five minutes and is filling and delicious. This is a combination of ground beef and vegetables flavored with garlic and oregano, but you could use whatever ground meat you have; turkey works really well here. This is a low carb meal suitable for the keto diet.
The one thing that disappoints me a little is how high the net carbs are on a lot of the recipes. For a keto person who tries to eat 20 or fewer carbs, I can only make one of these recipes every couple days due to carb counts often being around 10. (Maybe its a sign i should switch to OMAD) This isn't applicable to all recipes but several that I've seen. But still a great keto and low carb resource for sure!
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.
This is a rich tuna salad, served as a salad, that’s punched up with pesto and lemon. It’s creamy without feeling overly heavy, so it’s perfect for serving up as a summery lunch. I also love that this dish can be tossed together in less than 10 minutes and is a single serving. This makes it great for those of you who are taking lunch to work or live alone. Plus, if you keep the basic ingredients on hand in your pantry then it’s an inexpensive option that you can make whenever you ...
I found your recipes and was eager to try them! This morning I made the almond and coconut flour bread, blueberry muffin and the pancakes for family breakfast. They were all delicious!! I was amazed at how moist they were. However, even thought the bread was light, it did not achieve the height shown with the recipe. I need advice on how to achieve a higher loaf. My family was delighted at the healthier version of our Sunday morning breakfast. Thank you, Maya, for the time and effort spent in perfecting and sharing your recipes.
I’m notoriously pathetic in the kitchen. But since being on the Keto diet, learning how to try new recipes has become a necessity for me. I think the food I most miss has been bread; so I’ve tried several different recipes in the hope of finding one I actually like. Yours is the only one I can honestly say that I really love! I was sure I had messed up another recipe when I poured it into the bread pan. But it came out smelling fantastic and tasting even better. Thank you for sharing it. Keto on!!

Hi Ashley, Usually egg whites take just a few minutes to beat to stiff peaks. Definitely not 40 minutes. Old eggs can sometimes be the culprit, or a bit of leftover fat/grease from something else in the bowl can prevent stiff peaks (this is especially common when using a plastic bowl). Lastly, it could be that your mixer isn’t powerful enough to beat that many whites to stiff peaks, but this reason is a last resort and probably less likely. Cream of tartar is a huge help in reaching stiff peaks so you can try adding that next time.

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.
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!

These little crustless quiches have the perfect balance of meat and vegetables, making them super-tasty and perfect for a quick snack or a lunch. These taste so good cold so would be great to take to work or pack in the kids’ lunchboxes. Just be a bit careful to taste the mixture before you add the salt as the ham can be salty enough, depending what type you use.
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!!

The best part about this recipe is that it’s simple, and once you have it down, you can replicate this keto friendly bread any time you want. I’ve been making a low carb loaf every Sunday for the past few weeks and would recommend that to anyone. It’s so nice to have a loaf of bread at your disposal when you’re on a low carb diet. It almost feels like cheating. Check out this recipe and start making the best keto bread you’ve ever tried today!

What happens if you eat one meal a day


I just made this bread and it’s lovely but when I work out the ingredients I used it works out a far greater fat content that yours. I used ground almonds as that is what we use for almond flour in the uk, I don’t know if that makes a difference. Per serving (half the recipe) this is what I get: cal 240, fat 21.3g, net carb 2.2g, protein 9.4g. Any idea why mine is so much more?

Egg-based wraps. These take a bit of preparation, but they are absolutely delicious with the right ingredients. My favorite egg-based wrap recipes are the Ultimate Breakfast Roll Ups and the Spinach, Herb & Feta Wrap. Both of them come packed with unique flavors and keto-friendly ingredients that make for the perfect high-protein, high-fat breakfast.
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!
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…

What happens if you dont eat 3 meals a 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!

You’d never have thought that Chinese cuisine would naturally produce delicious Keto burgers, but there it is! This has been one of my favorite dishes growing up in a Chinese household, and I’m really excited to finally share it with you. This eggplant burger recipe sticks pretty closely to the traditional Chinese recipe (often called Qiezi He or Qie He).

Omigosh! This bread is just delightful! DH (dear husband) and I started a no carb diet 10 days ago and really miss a bit of carbohydrates. When I ran across this recipe, I had to give it a try. It is delicious! In the middle of moving, I have no access to my food processor. And, I didn’t add anything else that was recommended except for the cream of tarter, which I had on hand. I did everything by hand but found my mixer to make the stiff egg whites. The tips on baking were really helpful! Thank you so much! We are so enjoying every morsel.
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.
