90 Second Keto Bread?

Have you ever heard of making keto bread in 90 seconds? I was skimming through Pinterest and I found a beautiful picture with a heading that said 90 Second Keto Bread.

I immediately clicked the post to open it and peruse the instructions. Seemed easy enough so I decided to try it. Not only did I attempt to make this recipe but I recorded the whole thing for you guys to watch and decide for yourselves if you want to make the same attempt.

So hit or miss? What do you think? Will you be trying it? Do you have a delicious go to recipe for a bread-like item that’s Keto friendly? I would love for you to share it in the comments below!

Escarole Soup

When I was a kid my big Italian family would gather for every holiday and sit down to a multi course dinner. The memories I have from these holidays has influence how I raise my children, how I view the major holidays in my life, and how I cook.

As a child one of my favorite courses was the soup course. I know, weird! But… it was so good! The soup every single time was Escarole Soup. It was only ever around in my life during the holidays but now that I’m grown and can make my own decisions…. I make it all the time.

Is it low carb? yes. Ketogenic? yes. Is that why I make it? NO! Whether you’re eating a standard American diet or not, this is a great one. And take it from me, kids love it too.

When it comes to measurements for this soup, it varies. The video shows you step by step instructions, including how much of each item I used for the size pot that I have.

Ingredients

  • Chicken Stock
  • Eggs
  • Escarole
  • Grated Pecorino Romano Cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  1. Simmer chicken stock. If you like things a little less salty, add water to dilute the stock a little bit.
  2. Coarsely chop escarole, rinse, and put in stock, stirring.
  3. Whisk eggs, add grated cheese, add salt and pepper.
  4. Drop egg mixture into simmering pot and stir.
  5. Serve with grated cheese on top if desired.

Hope you all love the little piece of my childhood. Salute!

Keto Friendly Lunch | Egg Salad & Baby Spinach

Need an easy lunch idea?! Look no further! You can make this as is or adjust to add some of your favorites. This is easy and simple to make at home or prep before hand and bring to work with you.

Ideas to Add

You can add crumbed bacon, some cherry tomatoes, avocado, or whatever other favorites you may have. In this recipe I do use a wrap made by Low In Carb. This particular wrap has 8 net carbs which can be a lot for some people, depending on the rest of your day and how strict you are with the ketogenic way of eating. So an easy option is to skip the wrap and add more spinach!

What I Used

  • 1 Honey Wheat Low In Carb Wrap
  • 2 Hard Boiled Eggs
  • 1/2 C Baby Spinach
  • 1 TB Mayo Made With Olive Oil
  • 1 TB Olive Oil
  • Salt, Pepper, & Garlic Powder
  • *or add Everything But the Bagel Seasoning: https://amzn.to/2V1nB4h

Have an air fryer? I made these eggs in my air fryer! 260 degrees for 16 minutes. Grab an air fryer here if you don’t have one!

January Ketone Experience

 

It’s time for a special ketone experience to kick off 2019! It’s been awhile since I’ve put together a special experience pack but what better time to launch one than the beginning of a new year?

This time last year I had no idea that how I was feeling could easily be altered. How was I feeling? I was feeling tired. All. The. Time. Seriously, I needed constant naps and was always fighting exhaustion. I was feeling heavy. I guess bloated would be a good way to describe it? Just heavy and lousy and not like myself. My clothes weren’t fitting the way I liked, my skin wasn’t doing that great, and overall I just wasn’t happy with how I felt.

Then I saw a Facebook post from my sister in law. She introduced me to ketones (a drink that supplies your body with ketones & puts you into ketosis) and a different lifestyle that I just gravitated towards. I did all the research. I watched all the videos. I read all the articles. I learned quickly and dove right in. Now a year later I can say I am SO glad that I did!

In addition to losing 40lbs (and KEEPING IT OFF!), the exhaustion has gone away. I don’t need that afternoon nap or the 5 cups of coffee. Don’t get me wrong I still love my coffee, but it doesn’t drive me anymore. I’ve kicked bad habits, created better cravings, and was able to buy new jeans.

The science behind exogenous ketones makes total sense to me. The science behind a ketogenic way of eating makes total sense to me. When I put them together it was like magic. Over 2018 I did not stay in a strict keto way of eating. I slowly added back in items  that I love, like pastas, potatoes, and pizza. Yet, I’ve been able to maintain because of a few things; altered eating habits, use of ketones & keto kreme, and periodic intermittent fasting.

So, yes, I want to share all of this with you because I’ve experienced it. I know it works. I know the changes are worth it. I’ve put together a special experience pack this month for those of you who are looking to try something new that could very well change your year like it did mine in 2018.
