Keto Christmas Eve

I’ve lost 60 pounds, and there’s a tin of Christmas cookies on my table that I’m not even tempted to touch. So why would I even want to cheat over Christmas? This Christmas Eve, I cooked a quick, simple, and economic dinner of sirloin steak and cauli-rice. Advertisements

Recipe Review – 4-Cheese Garlic Spaghetti Squash

While I am still recovering from my broken ankle, I decided to review some recipes, since I don’t really have the stamina to make up my own stuff and be creative in the kitchen just yet. While it does kind of seem redundant, I’m trying to pick recipes that don’t have any reviews, so I…

Eat Keto in A Crisis

As I mentioned in my last post, I recently had an injury that left me bedridden for 6 weeks. But I managed to stay keto through it all, and lost 10 pounds, too! Below I have compiled a list of tips and foods that kept me (and my family) sane…just remember, if you’re bedridden or…

Pulled Pork ‘Mac’ and Cheese

I think the best part of keto may be that it is completely acceptable to heat some cream on your stove and add cheddar cheese until it’s thick, and then just pour it over stuff. Any arguments? No? I used the last of my 5-lb pork roast to make this yummy “mac” and cheese for…

BBQ Chicken Mini Pizzas

Once upon a time, I did Weight Watchers  and they had this really yummy recipe for tortilla pizzas- red onion, chicken in BBQ sauce, and mozzarella on a whole wheat tortilla. Let me tell you, that sweet-smoky flavor combination with the bite of the red onion is a pretty amazing flavor profile! I was really…

Keto Charleston Red ‘Rice’

Have you ever had red rice? Growing up, it was a staple side at every family get-together on my mom’s side of the family, who have been in Charleston since the 1700’s. As a child, I remember going to my grandfather’s humble house on acres of deep water-front property, playing golf (with numbered oak trees…

Carolina Mustard BBQ Sauce

I am not a gigantic fan of regular BBQ Sauce (though it has its moments). But Carolina Mustard? Yes, please! Obviously one of the best things the best thing about living in Charleston is the incredible food everywhere you go, but the BBQ? It’s everywhere and it’s amazing, and topping it with that tangy, sweet, yellow…

Pulled Pork All Week!

If you live a ketogenic lifestyle, then you know that the grocery bill can get pretty high…that’s unfortunate, because I’m pretty cheap- um, frugal. I find one of the best ways to combat the high prices of keto is to buy meat on sale, and buy a ton of it. Either you get a lot…

Chicken Pizza Zucchini Boats

Tonight was one of those nights where I was in the mood for something different to eat, but didn’t have the will or remote desire to leave the house in search of something different. Plus, I had food in the fridge that I definitely didn’t want to go bad…so I made myself some zucchini boats!…

Panfried Chicken Fingers

I can’t wait for fall, and I’m not talking about the cooler weather, changing leaves, or pumpkin flavored everything…I’m talking about the traffic. Now that Charleston, SC has been named one of the best places to travel by magazines for years in a row, there is no “quick run” to the store. Oh, no. Not…

Asian-esque Stir Fry

Y’all, I’m not gonna lie to you. I have no idea how to make authentic Asian cuisine. I am from biscuits-and-gravy -country. So excuse the less than appealing recipe name, and certainly sub-par Asian cuisine skills, and just trust me that this tastes pretty awesome. I was craving Asian food- okay, a little more honesty, I…
