One meal I miss from my higher carb eating days is my cheesy enchiladas. Mr Low Carb didn’t really care for them as he doesn’t like refried beans but he would eat whatever I made. I knew I had to find a low carb alternative for this! I have also been on a stuffed pepper kick lately, don’t ask me why, which is really strange because I never really used to like peppers. It’s funny how my taste buds have changed with this new lifestyle. Last week I made lasagna stuffed peppers, but forgot to take pictures or track what I put in them so no blog post for those, however I will post the next time I make them.

Warmer weather is upon us and with that comes increased consumption of cold refreshing beverages. I have been enjoying iced cold brew coffee, frappuccinos, iced tea, and tea frappes. It sometimes gets too warm in my kitchen to really want to cook anything so experimenting with cold drink recipes lets me still feel creative without making myself a hot mess! Today my oldest daughter and I went on a nice long walk, well she walked and I rollerbladed for over 3 miles! I managed to not fall and break anything, quite impressed with myself. We were both hot when we got home so what is more refreshing than a nice cold frappuccino! So I set to work making us up a nice refreshing treat. Continue reading “Shari’s Frappe Bomb”
I have been having a hankering for a nice dessert and cheese cake seemed to fit the bill nicely. Much to my chagrin I have never made a cheesecake, at least not one that didn’t come from a box. I am not much of a dessert person to begin with so it’s pretty typical not to make desserts, though I used to make a mean cookie! I try not to have many sweets low carb or not, but every now and then it is a nice treat. We had a potluck dinner last week so I decided to try my hand at a chocolate cheesecake because like bacon, chocolate also makes everything better!

Going LCHF/Ketogenic doesn’t mean you have to give up bread! This Keto Roll recipe is simple to make and doesn’t take fancy ingredients. The fanciest ingredient needed is Psyllium husk powder, which should be a staple in your kitchen, and the rest are ingredients almost everyone would have on hand. You can even change it up by adding different seasonings such as garlic for a lovely garlic roll to go with a yummy spaghetti squash dish! So versatile!

While perusing the recipe section at Diet Doctorhttps://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/recipes I saw a recipe with radishes. Now I have never used radishes before but I have used bacon and bacon makes everything better. I have had radishes in salads before but never prepared buy me. I was feeling adventurous, so while at the store I picked up some radishes. Not being familiar with them I didn’t know there were different types, they had some whitish ones and some lovely pink ones and then ugly black ones all in the same thing and only one price listed.

We know having a balance between our glucose and insulin is vitally important for our health. It’s why we chose to eat LCHF/Ketogenic way of eating.
Tonight I had the pleasure of presenting on glucose and diet at our monthly NeoLife Experience meeting. I think diet and supplementing with targeted food supplements to assist our cells to become more insulin sensitive so we can use less insulin is super important. Continue reading “Experience the Glucose Balance”
Do you think living a LCHF Ketogenic lifestyle means no more bread? Well think again! There are many low carb bread recipes out there and I like a few, but I was still searching for a chewy sandwich bread. Recently I had a family member contact me to ask if I had heard of this bread book and the author and if I hadn’t could I look into it. So I diligently took to researching both the author, Kelley Herring, and the book.* Continue reading “Chewy Sandwich Bread”
