The longer I'm on a Paleo Ketogenic “keto” diet, the more I'm realizing that I personally need to eat at least 75-80% fat a day to feel ‘optimal'. This takes some adjusting if you're not used to it! So I thought I'd share my personal favorite fatty breakfast, which is 75% fat, delicious and helps keep me going throughout the day. My brain LOVES it when I eat this.
I'm always looking for more recipes that uses grass-fed ground beef, and this is a good one! You wouldn't think that hamburger would make a good low carb fried “rice”, but the meat lends well to the flavors of garlic, ginger and fermented soy. This is a filling and satisfying fall meal.
I had the pleasure of being interviewed last week for the HealthNuts podcast by Caitlin Weeks and Mary Vance, about my ebook “Kick the Weight with Keto“. It was a great experience and Mary/Caitlin were great interviewers and I felt super comfortable, just like having coffee and discussion with friends!
I didn't even know what a Hail Merry tart was until I was researching a dairy free dessert to make for my daughter, who cannot tolerate gluten, dairy or eggs. Apparently these tarts are sold in stores in individual servings, but are sweetened with honey. Well I also wanted to be able to eat this dessert along with my daughter, so here is a version that is paleo, keto, vegan, low carb, gluten free, dairy free, egg free, contains no soy and most important of all, is completely delicious!
Well you know me, I just can't leave well enough alone when it comes to low carb keto pizza! So yes I had to come up with yet ANOTHER recipe variation for my favorite food on earth. For all of my pizza related recipes, please see the low carb pizza summary post.

You're going to LOVE this snack, and it's low carb too (and very filling)!
I toasted these coconut flakes with some real vanilla and a touch of low carb sweetener, and now have a wonderful snack that will satisfy your sweet tooth, give you some fiber and some good fats, all-in-one little package! They make a great topping for plain yogurt too, and a good addition to any paleo “cereal” mix you like.
MyFitnessPal is actually my FAVORITE app to track carbs and calories. However it does take a bit of configuring to get the goals and displays correct so they're more useful when you're on a low carb or ketogenic (keto) diet.
