Keto Sous Vide Yogurt

I'll admit, I am food gadget junkie. You name it, I've probably experimented with it. Instant Pot, Blendtec, an Iwatani torch, several smokers (including an electric smoker I typically use), and an immersion circulator (sous vide cooker). I generally use a new gadget to make everything I can imagine and then relegate it to my shelf to only be used for the things I deem it truly the best at. My immersion circulators had been relegated to use in cooking sausage until I recently developed this ...

Raspberry Cocoa Nibs Yogurt Parfait

Valentine's Day comes at a really unwelcome time of the year for someone who spends a lot of time thinking about the pursuit of good health. No matter what I do during the holiday season, I always end up fighting a cold, letting my carbs float up, and generally celebrating a little too much with friends and family. I had it beaten this year, though. I encountered all the typical slowdowns from holiday obstacles and managed to still build up a head of steam by the time 2018 rolled around. I ...

Instant Pot Smoked Pork Bone Broth

This Smoked Pork Bone Broth post involved the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my relatively young career as a low carb food blogger -- convincing my family to cut the meat off their ribs and not devour it like a pack of hyenas. In this case, those bones had a higher calling. Thankfully my family, who is used to humoring my weird food projects, was happy to oblige. It wasn't that hard with my nearly fall-off-the-bone ribs. Eventually we worked our way through three racks of ribs and ...

Keto Hard Apple Cider

One of the questions I see the most regarding keto diets is what you can drink as far as booze. The short answer is that beer is out, hard liquor is in, and wine are sort of provisionally in. I say "provisionally" because it really comes down to the style in which they wine is made. It runs a continuum from keto-busting sweet to totally bone dry. Hard cider is much the same situation, but there are few if any options as far as "keto hard apple cider" in stores. So, why is that? I think there ...

Book Review: The Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen

Are any of you big "South Park" fans? There's a classic and now-famous episode called "Simpsons Already Did It" (S6E7) whose theme is basically that no matter what plotline for the show you could think of, the long-running prime time cartoon "The Simpsons" already did it. It's tough stepping into a domain where the greats have been working for a long time. When it comes to the work of Carolyn Ketchum, that motif also runs through the minds of low carb food bloggers. Through her peerless low ...

Kohlrabi French Fries

Yes, you read that right. Keto french fries, and no, they're not potatoes. Everyone who has ever switched to a keto lifestyle has kryptonite foods that you miss periodically despite conquering general carb cravings. Like a lot of people, mine was McDonald's french fries. In the past, I've been known to make multiple stops to assemble the perfect fast food meal. Fries from McDonald's, burgers from In-N-Out, milkshakes and deep fried cheddar cheese curds from Culver's. You can't say I ...
