Since I’ve been on zero carb and keto I’ve wanted a beef jerky snack that I can take with me and needs no refrigeration. Yes, I could buy jerky but the ones without the chemicals and sugar are expensive. Even the beef jerky with sugar is expensive, actually!

So I looked at my freezer full of ground beef – grass fed hamburger and said ‘why can’t I do this myself?’ My ground beef grass-fed jerky was born! And the good thing is, I can flavor this however my family wants. I made mine in my Excalibur dehydrator but it’s almost as easy to make this in your oven.

protein shake main image

Since I started on a Zero Carb diet, some mornings I’ve been getting into the bad habit of drinking broth with some gelatin in it. Don’t get me wrong, bone broth and gelatin are great for me, but not as a meal replacement. I want to practice actually eating when I’m hungry and giving my body the nutrition it needs, not displacing my hunger and becoming a ravenous tiger at lunchtime or dinner.

I also wanted to find a quick, easy breakfast that I could take with me on the run. Also sometimes I just don’t want to eat solid meat in the morning, but I do want to eat, and I’m limiting the amount of eggs I consume. I came up with a GREAT alternative, zero carb, keto quick meal, “protein shake”!

Reverse Sear Steak

This is hands down the BEST way to cook steak that I’ve found! It’s a close to foolproof as it comes, folks. Tender, juicy and cooked to your preferred temperature too.

Fermented Cabbage Juice

Yes, I know that a Zero Carb diet is “supposed” to be all animal foods. HOWEVER, I’ve been having some digestive issues as of late, and have felt the need to add a bit of fermented good bacteria into my system. We will see how this sauerkraut related cousin works…
