Keto Roasted Sausage and Cabbage

Sausage and cabbage are two things that I didn’t eat a lot of before starting Keto. If I did eat sausage then it was in the form of a sausage dog. And Cabbage? unless it was in coleslaw that just wasn’t happening! How on earth did I go so long without discovering how wonderful these two things can be mixed together? This Keto roasted sausage and cabbage recipe is fabulous! It was one of those happy accidents that happen when the cupboards and fridge get too bare close to grocery day. Even better? It’s one of those one pan meals that make’s clean up aRead More →

A collection of ingredients for lazy,strict and dirty keto

People seem to have this habit of trying to break things down into cliques. When I first started Keto I was unaware of the different groups Keto people fell under. I certainly couldn’t understand why some people would say something was ‘Keto’ and others would disagree.  It was confusing and overwhelming and honestly just a little bit off-putting. People can be very strongly opinionated when it comes to their food. The debate over lazy, strict and dirty keto rages on in the keto community and I am here to help shed some light on it for those of you just starting out. Before I start,Read More →

Keto Meringue Cookies

Some days just require cookies! When we first started to eat Keto it seemed next to impossible to find suitable desserts. Everything we tried paled in comparison to what we liked before. Lots of people will tell you that embracing Keto means not looking for substitutes but I feel that this mindset is the wrong one to take. Creating a way of eating that we can maintain long-term means being realistic. Realistically I know that someday’s I will want treats. Finding solutions that fit our new way of eating and our desire for dessert without binging on sugar-laden junk food was necessary. Thankfully these KetoRead More →

Keto Strawberry shortcakeheader2

A long time ago I posted my Top 5 Strawberry Recipes. As a family, we loved those recipes but they were enjoyed before we started following the Keto way of eating. Unfortunately, when it comes to keto those recipes don’t quite fit the bill. I have since learned how to convert most recipes to Keto, thanks in part to my handy conversion chart and have decided to go back and re-do as many of them as I can. This Keto Strawberry Shortcake is the first of these attempts and although it took me a few tries I am proud to say that it turned outRead More →

Keto Chili

Chili is something my family is pretty serious about. It’s been a challenge to perfect the recipe so that it suits all of our tastes and we had it perfect. Down to a science. And then – We Went Keto. The Keto way of eating is great and I love it but it meant giving up our old Chili recipe! That was a sad realization – however, we didn’t stay sad for long! With a few twists and tweaks, I managed to turn our old Chili recipe into a Keto Chili Recipe. My husband loved it, my kids asked why I hadn’t made it soonerRead More →

A selection of keto friendly vegetable's

With spring just around the corner, I find myself itching to get out in the garden! With all the changes to our lifestyle, however, our typical garden just won’t work anymore. We used to grow the garden staples – corn, carrots, pea’s, potatoes.  That is hardly keto friendly. I didn’t want to give up my garden so I decided to plant a keto friendly garden this spring! Being self-sustainable and healthy are both important and you don’t have to give up one for the other! What will you grow in your Keto friendly garden?

A collection of Keto Pantry Staples. The collection includes Coconut Flour,Coconut Oil, Swerve, Olive oil and almond flour decorated with various blue and purple flowers.

  When my husband and I started the Keto way of eating our pantry was given a serious overhaul. With the exception of a few things for the kids, almost everything was given away or just thrown out. We felt it would be easier to stick with our new diet if all of the bad food wasn’t around to tempt us. This approach worked very well, except we were still learning about Keto and at a loss about what should be on our shelves. Thankfully you don’t have to fumble around like we did! We are here to help and this list of Keto PantryRead More →
