The recipes in this book sound great and I even made a couple that tasted good but what I'm not sure on is how accurate the nutrition facts are and serving sizes. For example the Meatloaf only has 184 calories, fat 10.5 g, protein 8.3 g, carbs 7.3 g and fiber 15.7 g (have no idea where all that fiber is coming from) I even hopped on some websites to enter in the Ingredients and it was nowhere near what the book claims especially for calories. I was doing really good at losing weight, I feel I gained more after making and eating the foods out of this recipe book. I agree with another reviewer the meals are on the higher side of the carb factor. On to another keto cookbook for me.

What is the symptoms of HBsAg


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!!

Is pasta healthier than bread


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!

Can you drink water while fasting


Hi James, Thank you for sharing. Most likely this wasn’t fully cooked if it stuck to the parchment paper, as I never have to grease it, but I did add a note to the post that you could do that to be on the safe side. I think the previous recipe and post were not clear enough on how to make sure that it’s done, so I updated them and hope that will help. I’d love to know if that made a difference if you try it again. But, this bread is more similar to fluffy pre-sliced white bread than a crusty bread, so I still would not expect a crust. If you are looking for a crusty bread, try this almond flour bread instead.
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
Made this bread yesterday. I was very sceptical whether it would seem like bread. I do not have a food processor. So I mixed the dry ingredients by hand. And folded the first half into them. Then I folded the ingredients as per the recipe and I was very pleasantly surprised. It turned out great and I will make it again. As for the egg yolks I made scrambled eggs and had them with my new bread for breakfast.

Do ulcers get worse at night


Julian Bakery Paleo Bread. Julian Bakery makes loaves of bread that are made out of coconut flour or both coconut flour and almond flour. Both varieties have 1 gram of net carbs per slice and are paleo friendly and gluten free. You can usually find Julian Bakery Paleo Bread at your local health food store or if you can’t find it there, just order it from their website.

For anyone that loves the warm, spiced, crunchy texture of crumb cake, this keto dessert is for you. Make a batter with almond and coconut flours, flaxseed, and butter before baking and topping with a nutty crumble. Make these 1-carb donuts Bulletproof by using Ceylon cinnamon and grass-fed butter, plus skip the nutmeg. Avoid eating flax too often as well, since it can irritate your gut.


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?
Fish cakes can be a great meal to serve for the whole family and since these ones are quick and easy to make, they could become a go-to for midweek dinners. This recipe uses canned salmon which can usually be found cheaper than fresh but still has all the flavor you would expect. These can be served with a salad, salsa or sauce or you can simply tuck in as they are!

Does Hashimotos disease qualify for disability


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.

Can losing weight increase chances of pregnancy


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.
Blondies are chewy and gooey like brownies, but their flavor is less cocoa and more butterscotch. To replicate that classic blondie flavor in our Keto Skillet Blondies, without using traditional brown sugar, we used a combination of almond extract and and vanilla. Invite your friends over for dinner and serve this warm skillet with a scoop of keto-friendly ice cream. Everyone, grab a spoon and dig in to just 5.25g of carbs per serving!

Is eating steak good for you


Not only does the pumpkin give this bread a beautiful orange hue, but it provides you with a great source of Vitamin A and many other eye, skin, and lung protecting carotenoids as well. The coconut milk used in this keto recipe will give you some energy-boosting saturated fats called medium chain triglycerides, and the almond flour will help you meet your fiber, protein, and mineral needs for the day.

Is Sliced turkey a processed meat


This open-faced burger is a great way to serve up a fast lunch or dinner without worrying about a bun substitute. Ground beef patties seasoned with taco flavoring are served up with avocado, lettuce, pickled jalapenos, and pepper jack cheese. A drizzle of olive oil across the top ties the whole thing together! This recipe is a bit calorie-heavy, so it may be best suited for those of you who like to practice intermittent fasting. If you need to adjust the macros down you can easily do this ...

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!

Does D Ribose help fibromyalgia


Instead of a traditional peanut butter filling, these dark chocolate cups incorporate a striking green center made from coconut butter, matcha powder, and vanilla bean. For an extra boost, you can even add MCT oil or collagen peptides to the filling. Use coconut milk as your dairy, and stick with stevia or monk fruit as your sweetener to keep this dessert Bulletproof-approved.
Eating Keto gives us plenty of opportunities to get our daily dose of meat, but sometimes I get a huge craving for a plate of vegetables! Not only are they healthy and full of vitamins, but a meatless main course can be a great way to change up your Keto meal routine. That's why I've put together a list of 32 Keto-friendly meatless recipes, with delicious options to get your veggies in for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
For anyone that loves the warm, spiced, crunchy texture of crumb cake, this keto dessert is for you.

Make these 1-carb donuts Bulletproof by using Ceylon cinnamon and grass-fed butter, plus skip the nutmeg. Avoid eating flax too often as well, since it can irritate your gut.
For Keto, this bread is awesome! I have made it a few times, once with almond meal instead of blanched almond flour.. came out equally as good, just gives the look of a wheat bread. I slice it up once cool, and leave it on the counter for a few days. Then whatever is left goes into the fridge where it lasts for at least a week (if it actually lasts that long.) I like having bread around when doing Keto.. it helps with ease of a last-minute meal. Think Turkey sandwich, avocado toast, egg or chicken salad sandwich! Thank you!

How much dark chocolate can you eat on keto

A pretty cake stand goes a long way too. 

Can I eat yam on keto


Hi Amber, Yes, the baking powder and egg whites do help it rise a bit, just not as much as regular bread. It’s hard to say what went wrong, if anything. Everyone’s palate is a little different, so it’s possible you just didn’t like it, or maybe something didn’t go as it should have. It could be that the batter and whites weren’t folded together quite enough?

Why does my poop smell so bad


I've been in the mood for a classic, homestyle, casserole and this recipe really fits the bill. This easy weeknight dinner features broccoli and ham mixed up with a flavorful cream sauce composed of cream cheese, mayo, and full-fat Greek yogurt. If you prefer, you can substitute sour cream for the yogurt. If you make a ham for a holiday celebration, this is the perfect way to use up some of those leftovers. A shredded rotisserie chicken would be a great budget option for this recipe as ...

Can I drink Diet Coke during intermittent fasting


Since apples contain too much sugar to use in keto desserts, this pie uses a secret ingredient: Chayote squash. With a bright green skin and firm texture, they make the perfect apple substitute, and a perfect keto pie with under 4 net carbs per slice. Keep it Bulletproof and skip the nutmeg and apple extract, plus use grass-fed butter and Ceylon cinnamon. Avoid consuming xanthan gum too often, since it can irritate your gut.
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.
Made this 2 times. The 2nd batch turned out much better and more delicious . I use coconut sugar in place of the sweetner listed. However, I am having trouble with the egg whites and the consistency pictured. My egg whites turn into a foamy meringue. I have made meringue before, and I knew it would stiffen up, and it did. Otherwise the rise was much better on the 2nd attempt and looked very much like the bread pictured. I seemed to fold in the mixture better 2nd time around. 1st time it looked like I had pockets of uncooked dough though the temp reading at 2 locations showed above 200 deg F. I blamed it on not folding the mixture with the eggs well enough.

Hello!! Went grain free about two months ago to reverse a chronic illness. Am feeling great but was jonesing for a piece of bread!! Big time!! And that’s what you gave me! I wish I could share the photos I have of this loaf which baked up beautifully!! It is light and airy and tastes mild and yummy. Interestingly, when I toasted it up, a hint of coconut came out (obviously from the coconut flour). Thank you so much for sharing this… sandwich here I come!!

Get the same crunchy crust and cakey texture as regular cinnamon sugar donuts, without the sugar. With this keto dessert, you’ll make a simple batter with almond flour, butter, and eggs before baking and tossing in crunchy erythritol and cinnamon coating. Keep this one Bulletproof-friendly with Ceylon cinnamon and grass-fed butter, plus swap the almond milk with full-fat canned coconut milk.

How many carbs are in Olive Garden zoodles primavera with grilled chicken


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.

What is xanthan gum Walmart


Hi Al, I’m glad you liked the taste and am honored you chose my site for your first ever comment! 🙂 I haven’t tried this recipe in a bread machine. Most likely the biggest issue with your bread being flat is that you didn’t fold the egg whites in – breaking them down would definitely make the bread flat. I haven’t tried adding yolks as most people want their bread less egg-y, not more. I’d have some concerns about the bread being too “wet” by adding them though, even if you like an eggy taste. A better option might be to brush the top with yolks for color.
This recipe provides a fun spin on chia pudding. Instead of it just being one flavor, we’re layering several to create a Neapolitan style dessert. First, we create the base chia seed pudding recipe.  Then we divide it up into three bowls and create the vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry flavors.  If you want to dress this up like the pictures, then layer some thinly sliced strawberries inside.  You can top with whipped cream and garnish with a sprinkle of cocoa powder too.  We also added ...

What happens if you dont eat 3 meals a day


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?

How long does it take to cook lasagna at 350 degrees


I was so excited about making this bread. I recently cut all grains out of my life and I’m also in the process of going gluten free because i have a lot of digestive issues. I followed the recipe precisely. Checked the temp before taking it out of oven. It looked amazing nice and golden brown. I cut into it and i couldn’t wait for that first bite. I was so disappointed it has an odd flavor I just couldnt stomach and it was very salty to me. I tried a few tiny bites with different condiments and couldn’t eat it. After reading some comments, I see it is supposed to be unsalted butter. I used salted, but why did it seem to have a bitter sour taste to it?

Can you put any yeast in the mixture? And if you did, would it help it rise more in addition to tasing more “yeasty”?

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.
So I was really excited to make this bread. Went and bought all the supplies. The bread didn’t come out good at all. The outside looked good but when I sliced it the center was still moist. So I put it back in the oven with the tented foil probably for another 30 to 45 and still most. I’m def bummed that I waisted a whole carton of eggs. Is there something I could’ve done wrong?

Do Vegans eat rice


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!

What is L Arginine used for


Sardines are a really good source of fish oils, vitamins and minerals and can be bought very cheaply, so a quick keto salad like this would be perfect for people on a budget or for students. The sardines are packed with flavor and require no cooking so even novice cooks can manage this for lunch or dinner. The cider vinegar offsets the oiliness of the fish giving the salad a lovely freshness.

However, if you would rather have something a little more cheesy instead, then use the ingredients for the Extra Cheesy keto breadsticks instead. Not only will you get the health benefits of the extra cheese, but you will also give your body a good dose of allicin — a plant compound that is found in garlic powder and onion powder. Studies have found that allicin can helps decrease the risk of heart disease and boost brain healing from traumatic injury.
When you are separating the eggs if you use the method of pouring the egg from one half of the shell to the other you have to be extremely careful because the sharp shell can easily break the yolk. There are tools that you can purchase that will cradle the yolk and let the white run into a separate bowl. Or, you can use your hands. You need to make sure that your hands are extremely clean and fresh from being washed. Break the egg into one hand and let the white slip between your slightly separate fingers. The yolk will settle into your hand and the white will slip off into the bowl.

Does glucomannan break fast


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!

What are the early signs of liver damage


I followed the recipe to a tee, used all recommended ingredients. I’ve attempted making it twice, the first time I didn’t have a food processor and that was a complete fail. The second time, today, I bought a food processor and attempted it again. The egg whites were fluffy but never got to stiff peaks… maybe my eggs were too cold? Anyway, I baked for 30 mins, and it wasn’t even golden brown on the top so I didn’t put the foil on time and cooked it another 20 mins. I just pulled it out about 20 mins ago and it is golden brown. However, it is a very moist almost like a banana bread texture. I just popped it back in the oven hoping it will “dry up”. Any recommendations? Do I need to cook for and hour ?

How many times a day should you eat on keto


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.

"Spinach artichoke dip meets baked chicken!" says France C. "These juicy chicken breasts are smothered with a cheesy spinach and artichoke topping. It's the ultimate comfort food for those following a keto or low-carb lifestyle, and will be loved by everyone in the family regardless of diet! Serve with a side of roasted broccoli or asparagus, or on top of cauliflower rice."

Well… it turned out beautifully. It rose evenly, it was light, fluffy and baked through. It tasted very good, both plain and toasted with butter. I truthfully do not know if I would add the butter the next time I make a loaf because I was so pleased with this version. I will likely reduce the erythritol to 1 tablespoon or less for a more subtle sweetness in the future. This recipe has so many flavour possibilities and I look forward to trying out all of my ideas using this excellent base. It is also good to know that it can be made without the additional fat component. Don’t get me wrong, I am keto and a committed high fat enthusiast but slathering some fat on top of the bread… butter, pâté, nut butter… will work just fine for me.
I havie tried MANY bread recipes and they are all so eggy. They taste like burnt eggs! I LOVE the recipes on this site. You can tell she has tried them until they work. I make her bread recipes I. my breadmaker and they are fabulous. They do not rise quite as much as a regular loaf but taste fantastic. I do add 1 1/2 tsp yeast and a 1/2 tsp of sugar to activate the yeast; I put these in with a 1/4 cup of hot water and userhe quick bread setting. It is the only low carb bread I have tried that actually smells like bread when it comes out of the bread machine! My family was home for a visit and they all loved it. I had just told my husband that I wished this woman would come out with a recipe book….I got on this morning and what do you know!! We have loved most of her recipes. Her cream cheese pancakes made in a waffle maker with a few blueberries added in, along with sugar free syrup are FANTASTIC! I felt like I was eating at cracker barrel:)

Hi, I’ve made this recipe twice and LOVE the taste. However, both times the bread would rise so high in the oven, but as soon as I take it out to cool it deflated and middle sink down. What could’ve gone wrong? Over mixing? I did switch coconut flour to all almond flour instead. Could that be a problem? Please help as I’m anxious to make another batch. Thank you.
