Measure out ingredients. 1/2 cup pumpkin, 1-2 tbsp's sweetener of choice, 3 tbsp of cream cheese, 1/4 cup of heavy cream. Add to blender. Add 1 cup or so of ice. Add spices. I just do a few shakes of each. Blend in blender. Mixture will be thick because of the whipping cream. Keep adding ice until you get your desired texture.

BACON DONUTS?!!?! I know right. This is a low carber’s dream.

Stats – 320 calories, 26 grams of fat, 2.4 carbs, 0.3 fiber, 21.3 protein.

This is not an every single day recipe. Perfect for a special breakfast or if you are just craving a damn donut! No guilt.

So what you need for 2 servings-

  • 4 tbsp of butter
  • 2 or 3 tbsp of coconut oil or olive oil
  • 3-4 slices of bacon
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3rd cup of vanilla or plain whey protein
  • 1 oz sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 small mini bell peppers

  1. Precook bacon in a non stick pan. This is very important. You do not want to use a non stick pan. My first batch stuck right to the bottom in a regular pan!
  2. Melt butter on stovetop or in microwave.
  3.  After bacon is drained and cooled…

Ok. So last year when the whole mason jar salads thing hit I was all over it. I went and bought a case of jars immediately. The neat salads packed into a glass jar was so appealing to me. Well turns out I am lazy because I never ended up making one!

Fast forward to last night when my friend Heather made a video about—you guessed it mason jar salads. I had to step my game up!

I decided to go with a taco salad. I used-

mason jarRomaine, Lean beef I cooked up with some homemade taco seasoning, fresh red bell pepper slices, homemade salsa, mexican cheese, black beans, and chobani.

It’s so simple. Just start layering. I put the “wet” ingredients on the bottom so I started with the salsa and worked my way up. mason3mason2

I will probably add a little salsa ranch later. Just shake and eat. Delish!…

Cauliflower Pizza Crust!


Warning- this literally took forever to make!! Next warning- It was sooooooooo worth it and delish!!

I know I am late to the cauliflower crust party but I had to jump on board. I have collected a million recipes and just went with the most simple one.

Ingredients for crust- 1 head of cauliflower, 1 egg, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, and spices like oregano and a bit of sea salt. Also, toppings. I used mozzarella, pepperoni, yellow pepper, and mushrooms.

Clean and cut cauliflower into florets. Use a food processor or a blender and rice your cauliflower into little pieces. Do small batches. I had to do about 6. If you don't have a food processor or blender, start chopping with a knife? Good Luck!

Now comes the fun part (not really). We have to strain the cauliflower. I started with a simple mesh strainer and switched to paper towels to really press out the water. You have to get the cauliflower rice completely dry or you will have a crappy crust!

Most people use a tea towel. I had no such thing. One whole roll of paper towels gone and finally the rice was dry!

Your oven should be on 400. Layer parchment paper on a baking sheet. Shape your dough into whatever shape you want.  We made a slightly higher crust for a more pizza effect.
