Low Carb No Sugar Ground Beef Jerky

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!

Pepperoni “Chips” with Dip

pepperoni chips

My family was super hungry waiting for cauliflower crust pizza to finish the other night, so I made them this ‘appetizer' in about 5 minutes.

Coconut Fat Bomb Candies

These coconut oil ‘candies' or ‘fat bombs' as some people call them, are incredibly useful for evening sugar cravings. They can be made extremely low carb with your alternative sweetener of choice (I prefer xylitol/stevia mix for these), and they are great to have in the fridge for when you are in the throes of a craving, or just great as an evening snack. It's hard to explain but these seem to satisfy something in my body and I can just feel myself going ‘ahhhhhh… I'm better now'. Maybe it's the combination of the cocoa powder and coconut flakes together working it's magic. Whatever it is, I'll take it!
