  • Onion Braised Brisket for Two

    Onion Braised Brisket for Two

    This takes a while to cook so set this aside for a weekend. The recipe is slightly adapted from the original I found online that used a 6 pound brisket. That’s too big for my wife and myself. When I buy brisket I buy it when it’s on sale and divide it into 2 pound […]

    Small study finds ketogenic diet benefits mental illness

    The study is tiny. But, if true, I think it adds to the other evidence that human beings might be naturally allergic to carbohydrates.

  • 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 […]

  • Are we counting carbs wrong?

    Are we counting carbs wrong?

    Personally, I don’t count carbs at all. I don’t know how many I consume in a day. I don’t track macros either. What I do, and it’s a practice I’ve had for decades now, is eat mostly meat and vegetables that are cooked at home. If I do look at a label to see the […]
