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. Pepperoni chips with cream cheese could even be served as a first course at an informal party such as superbowl, or used in a fat fast! It even makes a good very low carb quick lunch with a side salad. I will be bringing this to the next party I go to so I will have a paleo/primal keto snack that I can eat!

Sushi Salad with Sriracha Dressing & Seaweed “Croutons”

Sushi salad 500x375

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!

Crispy Nuts – a Nutritious Paleo Keto Snack

almonds

Many recipes in Eat Fat Lose Fat call for Crispy Nuts, and they are also great to eat plain as a nutritious snack. Crispy pecans, almonds, macadamias, peanuts, and cashews can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature; the omega-3 content of walnuts makes them susceptible to rancidity, so store walnuts in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Skinless almonds are recommended, as the skins can be irritating to the digestive tract, even when soaked.

Homemade Alfredo Sauce Recipe

alfredo sauce

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.

How to Make Coconut Oil Candy ‘Fat Bombs’

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!

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
