The one thing I was super bummed about when I started a low carb keto diet (a.k.a. ketogenic diet) is that I would have to give up pizza. I absolutely LOVE pizza and always have. There are low carb pizzas in the freezer case at the grocery store, but I am trying to stay away from processed foods as much as possible, and I'm pretty sensitive to gluten, even in small amounts.
When I first heard of the cauliflower crust I was pretty skeptical. CAULIFLOWER?? Yuck. I mean, I love the cauli-mashed potatoes and the cauli-rice too, but it seemed to go pretty far to say that cauliflower could replace a gluten filled (or even gluten free starchy) crust.
Well let me tell you, I have just created the mecca of low carb, gluten free, vegetarian pizza. I have actually made pizza MULTIPLE times this weekend trying to make a fairly crispy cauliflower crust, and the results have been amazing to say the least! My other family members that are not low carbers even said that they would eat this pizza, and the confused and surprised looks on their faces when they tasted the pizza were priceless!
This amazing, versatile low carb salad is the accidental product of my laziness. I was trying to come up with a keto paleo sushi (really sashimi) hand roll using seaweed snacks but was having problems with them holding together. After struggling awhile (and having to eat my soggy failures haha), I decided WTH I'm just going to combine all of the ingredients and call it Keto Paleo Sushi Sashimi Salad, with Sriracha dressing and seaweed snacks “croutons”! Wow that's a lot of S's!
Our entire family loves this sauce as it really is the best home recipe I've found for alfredo. Since I don't eat pasta, I have this on chicken & vegetables (or even no carb shirataki noodles) for a keto-friendly low carb meal, while my family does pasta or rice even. It makes even the plainest chicken or fish seem special! And I always seem to have all of the ingredients on hand, so it's easy to whip up quickly.
I love Thai food. So. MUCH. So when I saw this recipe in the Eat Fat Lose Fat book by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig., I jumped at it! An easy soup with Thai flavors that takes less than a half hour to prepare and cook? And, it tastes like something you would get in a good Thai restaurant? I'm all for it! It also fits very well into Paleo/Primal, Keto (ketogenic) or even a Whole30 plan
I love curry. SO. MUCH. It's actually ridiculous how much I love it. And once I learned how easy it was to make at home, I rarely even order it in restaurants. My daughter is also addicted and could eat this curry every day if I made it that often, which I could if I wanted to because its so ridiculously easy.
