Lazy low carber Guac and chips.


This is the laziest but yummiest snack ever.

You need 4 things.

  1. Pork rinds for “chips”
  2. 1 avocado
  3. 2 tbsp of pre made salsa (this is the lazy part)
  4. Salt to taste

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

 

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

Wow. All I can really say is wow. Want the best snack or dessert ever? Make this.

1 medium banana
1 tbsp of melted peanut butter
1 tbsp of crushed nuts of choice

Cut banana in half. Melt peanut butter. I simply used my stove on low heat. It only took about 30-60 seconds to start melting in a small little pan. Place skewer sticks or popsicle sticks through the banana. After peanut butter is melted, dip banana halves into it. Coat evenly. Place bananas on a plate. Top with crushed nuts of choice. I used sunflower seeds. After 90 minutes they are ready to go. They are cold enough, but not frozen enough to break teeth. If you want to break teeth, freeze them a bit longer 🙂
