  • Are mushrooms low carb and keto friendly?

    Are mushrooms low carb and keto friendly?

    The short answer is… yes. I use mushrooms all the time to accent a meal. I put them in my omelets, serve them along side a steak, sauté them with green beans, snap peas, or broccoli among other vegetables. I think they’re great. I don’t think it’s possible to add so many mushrooms to a […]

    Update: Hat tip to Kate. She noticed I had an entire stick of butter for the ingredients when this only requires at most 2 tablespoons. Thank you!

  • Chicken Thighs in Lemon Butter w/ Capers

    This is an easy and quick weeknight meal. I love chicken thighs because they are difficult to over cook and they have tons of flavor. I’ve always preferred dark meat on birds to the white meat. This dish should take no more than 30 minutes from start to finish. I served this along side some […]

  • Homemade Mayonnaise

    Homemade Mayonnaise. Mayo is one of the easiest things to make. If you’re looking to make it without vegetable or seed oils DO NOT USE OLIVE OIL. In searching for different oil alternatives a lot of keto and sites that are anti vegetable and seed oil suggest olive oil. I tried it and it doesn’t […]

You can find it in many Asian stores but you can substitute Japanese miso which is more widely available in the average supermarket. The glaze for this dish is pretty potent on its own and you can cut […]

I used Allulose as the sweetener here and I found it far superior in taste to any other non-sugar sweetener. There is absolutely no artificial sweetener aftertaste when using Allulose. Allulose is less sweet than […]
