Eating keto means you miss out on a lot of breakfast foods. No toast, no cereal, no oatmeal, no fruit. Which pretty much leaves you with eggs & bacon, yogourt, and bulletproof drinks which can get old and boring really fast. Enter ‘NOATMEAL’. A combination of keto-friendly grains and such that form a well balanced breakfast to accompany your morning coffee that can be flavoured any way you want. You can add matcha, berries, vanilla, pumpkin seeds, nuts, cream, ect. and make each day a different variety. Yumm!

This low carb dish is the perfect combination of beef and veggies to feel super full, yet not bogged down. And oh my is it delicious! That being said, prepare yourself: it’s a glorified hamburger with mushroom sauce on cauliflower mash..not a steak. I’ve tweaked it a few times here and there to better reflect my taste buds, preferences, and allergies, but the original inspiration goes to Melissa from “I Breathe, I’m Hungry”.

Citrus Avocado Vegan Mayo | Keto Recipe

Following the ketogenic lifestyle means giving up a lot of store-bought mayonnaise options, salad dressings and sauces because of how much sugar they contain. That certainly doesn’t mean we can’t have any. This amazing avocado mayo is so versatile, I use it on almost anything! It goes great as a salad dressing, fantastic as a sauce for salmon or chicken, and is a perfect eggless vegan mayo. Heck, I eat it as-is with a spoon a lot too!

On the keto diet, smoothies are few and between the rate at which I used to enjoy them, so I’ve been getting creative and coming up with a few low carb smoothies for me to indulge in. The goal was to keep them above 80% fat, and below 10g of carbs. This keto-friendly low carb Matcha raspberry smoothie does not disappoint! It’s the perfectly drinkable consistency too!

I’m not the biggest fan of chicken, especially the breast part because it seems to be dry and bland. I take it back. Every single word! The minute this meal touched my lips, I was in heaven! The swooning noises coming from my boyfriend across the table confirmed that he agreed. Inspired by the lovely Jo Cooks, this keto-friendly stuffed chicken breast is worth the extra fuss it takes to prepare, twice over! Not kidding: Must. Make. Now!

Keto-Friendly Chocolate Mug Cake | Recipe

Following the ketogenic lifestyle really involves some serious willpower to stay away from sugar, and the easiest way to do that is to steer clear of the concept of dessert. As you become fat adapted, it is completely acceptable to treat yourself to a dessert every once in a while on special occasions, as long as it doesn’t have any processed sugar and the least natural sugars possible. By the time you are fat adapted, your sweet tooth is gone anyway so you enjoy it that much more without sugar. I put together a keto-friendly chocolate mug cake, and it was delicious!

Keto-Friendly Oven Dried Tomatoes | Recipe

These delicious oven dried tomatoes were made to be added into our cream cheese & prosciutto stuffed chicken breasts, but could absolutely be used as a salad topper or as a side dish. Not all of them made it to the recipe they were intended to since we ate a bunch as they were so tasty, but I suppose that is a great sign!

Keto-Friendly Mushroom Soup | Recipe

Winter means cold, and cold weather means soup season! Some people think it’s weird, but I could eat soup every day. Of course it would have to be a different flavour each time, and varying textures, but I would love it! I used to love cream of mushroom soup as a kid, but can’t eat the canned version nowadays. This vegetarian keto-friendly mushroom soup was inspired by the recipe published by “All Day I Dream About Food” a few years ago. It is absolutely delicious, and is sure to be thoroughly enjoyed throughout the frigid Canadian winters!

Keto-Friendly Cream of Broccoli Soup | Recipe

Cream of Broccoli Soup has been a staple in my childhood home for as long as I can remember. It started out as puréed “green soup” so my little brother would eat it and eventually developed into broccoli cheese soup once he decided that broccoli was a yummy, but my mother still puréed it so that we wouldn’t know there were onions (shh!). To this day living on my own, I still purée my cream of broccoli soup. It is delicious!

Date-night with the fiancé quickly went from movie-night to urge to cook a delicious ratatouille! I mean, who doesn’t love a great Disney movie with good company and good food. We gathered up the supplies, made a few tweaks to make sure it was a keto-friendly ratatouille, and the magic we cooked up is magnificent!  The version from the movie with the pretty little slices of vegetables is technically called Confit Byaldi, and it really gives the dish some class and a little fun. Not the best at slicing or want to get this dish made quickly? Cube the veggies and cook in the casserole in a stew form rather than slicing. It might not be as pretty but it tastes just as good!

This gluten-free Vanilla Almond Mousse is a great keto-friendly dessert or breakfast filled with good fiber, a large amount a healthy fats for such a small serving, and it fills you right up! Go ahead and enjoy it for breakfast too. Goes great with pumpkin seeds as garnish for added fatty & fibrous protein and some crunch to the smooth mousse. For an evening treat, I top it off with a few raspberries. Did I mention it took me under 10 minutes to make it!? And it only took that long because I stopped to take pictures!

Keto-Friendly Spicy Thai Tom Kha Mushroom Coconut Soup | Recipe

Keto-Friendly Spicy Thai Tom Kha Mushroom Coconut Soup
I went out for lunch for my networking group recently to the Green Papaya Thai Restaurant, and while the buffet was a hard-no for me because of the abundance of peanut sauce (anaphalactic allergy), rice and potatoes, I found myself in heaven eating their Tom Kha soup. It was delicious! I know there was more sugar in it than I’d like to admit, so I can’t go back for more, and decided to try to make it at home. My very own keto-friendly version of the hot & sour Thai tom kha mushroom coconut soup. It is a little different, but equally delectable! I made it for my family for our Christmas lunch and it was a hit! View Full Post “Keto-Friendly Spicy Thai Tom Kha Mushroom Coconut Soup | Recipe”
