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!

How to Use the Carb Manager App

Are you on a ketogenic or low carb way of eating? How do you track your MACROS? It’s a common questions. Your MACROS are your proteins, carbs, and fats. To become fat adapted and successfully in ketosis it’s super important that we intake the proper ratios of these elements. If using exogenous ketones, this won’t be as necessary, but either way, tracking your food is needed. So what app should you use? I’ve tried several and the Carb Manager one seems to be the most intuitive and helpful for this way of eating.

However, using the Carb Manager App can be confusing if you don’t have your settings correct. When the settings are correct, the app can be a wonderful tool in whatever meal plan you are following, ketogenic, low carb, low calorie, weight watchers, etc. In this video I explain how to set up your app correctly for your personal goals.

As of the time of this post, this video is RANKED #1 on youtube when searching “Carb Manager”…. THANK YOU!

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!

A Full Day of Eating Keto (vlog)

What do people who follow a ketogenic lifestyle actually eat all day? I had that question when I was researching and considering trying this for myself.

Since then, I’ve made multiple vlogs documenting normal days of eating keto. Sometimes I plan the day before what my meals will be, this was not one of those times.

Check out this day in my life where I ended up going out to lunch, forgot to do all the things I wanted to do, and still managed to end the day with near perfect macros!

Can you maintain weight loss after a ketogenic diet?

Whenever we start a new diet we’re told the same thing by people, “Once you stop you’ll gain all the weight back!” I’m sure it’s true for most diets and most people, but I’ve experienced something different with the keto way of eating!

Due to crazy summer life, amped up time at work, two productions, and just lack of planning, I’ve been off my keto way of eating for a few months. Guess what? I have not gained ANY of it back! How in the world does that happen? I contribute it to a few things:

  1. Keto helped me learn to make better choices
  2. I drink keto kreme with my coffee for breakfast each day
  3. A slight increase in physical activity
  4. Including ketones in my day, keeping me fuller longer
  5. My cravings have significantly changed.

Now that it’s fall and my life is coming together again I’m going to get back to my way of eating. Why? Because I feel absolutely GREAT when eating keto and feel absolutely HORRIBLE when I’m not. Want to join me? Comment below if you’re ready to dive into a healthier fall!
