Stuffed low carb high fat peppers!


I used one small pepper, 4 oz of ground beef, 1/8 avocado, 1 serving of cheese, 1 tbsp sour cream, some cilantro and a bit of taco sauce.

Just cook up your ground beef and heat oven to 350.

Spray a tray with coconut oil or oil of choice. I cut my pepper in half and removed the seeds. Next I sprayed coconut oil all over it to make it cook faster. Add beef to pepper. Top with cheese. Bake in your 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or so until peppers are softish. Add whatever Mexican toppings you like! 

Depending on your toppings this has about 5 carbs and tons of fat!!!
Keto on baby! I’m in deep Ketosis now and down about 11 lbs!

Meatballs with Queso and roasted asparagus.



Just sharing a quick 5 ingredient low carb or keto meal.

I used pre made meatballs (cuz I am lazy)


Just bake them through at 350 degrees for 2o minutes.

Heat up 1 serving of Queso.

I just do it in the microwave

Next I just tossed asparagus with coconut oil spray and tossed with Parmesan cheese. Baked at 350 for 20 mins.


It has a total of around 5 net carbs. And around 32 grams of fat. Don’t forget, fat is your best friend kids 😉

Drizzle Queso over meatballs ! Yum!

Pro tip- if you are lazy like me and want to buy pre made meatballs, read the labels!! Most of them are stuffed with at least 6-9 carbs a serving. I found these in the fresh meat section for 2 carbs a serving 🙂 


Keto for life! I am losing .4-.6 lbs a day!

I’m ending my day with these macros.

Now of course this isn’t total accurate because MFP doesn’t subtract fiber but I’m at 19 net carbs for the day. Happy ketoing!

Buffalo chicken dip in the slow cooker.


This recipe varies all over the Internet but here is my version.

  2. 8 oz cream cheese
  3. 1/2 cup Frank’s buffalo sauce
  4. 3/4 cup ranch
  5. 1 bag of cheddar cheese.

 Save yourself some time and just use rotisserie chicken!
 Combine all ingredients into crockpot. Cook on low for 2 -3 hours . To brown, broil on low for 5-10 minutes in oven.

I am eating my portion with a low carb tortilla, carrots and pork rinds. Another great low carb option would be celery.

This is the laziest but yummiest snack ever.

You need 4 things.

Mash your avocado. Throw in that salsa. Add salt to taste. Bam. Yes we know Guac is extra!!!!!!! 👌🏼 

 

Random “taco” bowl recipe. Lowcarb


When I am running low on groceries I love to make “taco bowls”.

Of course there is no actual taco <unless you made cheese tacos to go with>  but here is my random dinner. 

What I used-

1/2 cup jimmy dean turkey sausage

1/4 cup of squash

1/4 cup of cheese

1 tbsp sour cream

1/5th avocado

Coconut oil, sea salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.

I heated up a few tablespoons of coconut oil and let the squash cook down. Added sea salt pepper and a dash of cayenne. Once it was soft I threw in the turkey sausage (it comes precooked so it only takes a minute or two to warm through).  
 Topped with cheese avocado and a bit of sour cream. 
You can make this using whatever veggies meat etc. simple and easy!

Total carbs around 7 or 8 😉

Walnut coconut bark


I saw this on the web.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add a few walnuts to paper.
Melt coconut butter for 30 seconds so it’s melted but still thick. I do it right in the glass it comes in.
Pour over top of walnuts.
Add more walnuts!
I added unsweetened coconut shreds on top along with one tsp of stevia as well.
You can use whatever toppings you like. I saw some people adding crushed up quest bars!!
Put in fridge to harden. About 15-30 mins.
Break apart and store in a container in fridge.
Low carb, healthy fats! Nice little treat! Literally took me 4 minutes to make!

Low carb French onion soup.


Sunday night my husband and I were just hanging out talking about dinner. He mentioned French onion soup and so I knew instantly what had to be done. We ran to the store and I got some beef broth + onions + smoked Gruyere. This recipe is so simple anyone could make it.

For 8 servings.
6 tbsp of butter
2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
1 container of beef broth {32 oz}
2 medium size onions of any variety (I like Spanish and white)
1 tsp of dried thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
8 oz of cheese of choice. I suggest Gruyere, provolone, or Swiss. Anything smoked is good too!
Small bag of plain pork rinds.
Ramekins or oven safe bowls for soup
