Thanksgiving, We Need Deviled Eggs!!!

Hello Keto Funky crew, so a couple of days before Thanksgiving is here and looking for some keto side dishes and who doesn’t love some deviled eggs? We always make a huge batch and folks just down them and yes they are keto friendly.

This recipe is from Preppy Kitchen, he has some super easy recipes not all are keto friendly but this is one that is. Now keep in mind if you want to change things up a little go for it, I like a little spice to mine so I add a little Franks Red Hot Sauce just a dab will do. Have fun it’s Thanksgiving time to give thanks, eat & watch some football…

A couple of things to keep in mind to make this a little easier, he adds vinegar & salt to his water to help with making the peeling part easier. Also 7to8 minutes cook time, so yokes don’t get dark looking and last the cold bath after, no not for you the eggs…

Enjoy what you eat, keep it keto.

I hope everyone has a awesome Thanksgiving, we will be posting a lot more content so Hit the Like button, tell your friends.

90 Second Bread – Easy Bread

This is a staple in our keto journey, 90 second bread. If your craving a sandwich but don’t have any bread, this is a quick easy and tasty fix. You can play around with the recipe for different results, some like sweeter some don’t like it sweet at all.

You will need a few ingredients: 1/3c Almond flower, 1/2tsp Baking powder, 1tsp Sweetener, 1tbsp Oil or Butter, 1 Egg.

  1. Melt butter if using butter, if using oil don’t melt.
  2. Combine butter or oil with almond flour, egg, baking powder, and salt in the mug; whisk until smooth.
  3. Microwave at maximum power until set, about 90 seconds. Let cool for 2 minutes before slicing.

Now we like to cut in half and brown on both side, works great for sandwiches or burgers. Enjoy

Corona-virus, Social Distancing, Nope It’s Keto Snacks

I know we have been stuck home hearing all about the Corona-virus, social distancing, look I don’t know about you but I am so over it. My heart & prayers go out to all that are affected by this across the world.

My wife and I are both essential workers so we have been going to work then coming home and chilling. Thank God the weather is getting warmer so we can start swimming. I have been getting our and riding the motorcycle but I am ready for all this to be over. I hope this isn’t the new normal. Take this opportunity to try new things like cooking, cleaning, gardening, car cleaning, taking to your neighbors (please allow 6 feet) call family members, what about working out… I know I always make the excuse I would work out but I just don’t have the time. I should be buffed by now!

I was going though YouTube looking at some older, good & quick snacks because it seems like I keep making the same stuff, so I need some new ammo in my keto arsenal…

I ran across this from the folks at Keto Connect and it’s easy, fast and tasty snack.

Folks stay health on your keto journey and I am sorry it took so long to get this out, I will be posting more sooner just been dealing with life and it’s been a little crazy. Love your families.

She said dang that’s good… So give it a shot. and yes I could have smashed up the berries but naaaa, I like it my way.

I Need Pizza! I Got Pizza!

Hello family, it’s been a couple of days since I last posted. I was struggling getting past my 187lb weight and this mornings weigh in was 185.6lb… Breakthrough, yes! It’s all about the baby steps but but it feels so good to get through the wall I was at for a few months. No I didn’t do a fast, all I did was up my salad and lighten up on the proteins while maintaining the fats. Sounds like science class but it’s super easy. Instead of 8oz of steak, I would go with a little smaller portion of chicken or fish add a big ole salad with some avocado slices. That’s a simple mod to the diet that did wonders.

So I was having a pizza craving and normally I like to make my chicken pizza crust but in my craving fit and not wanting all the proteins that would have added, I decided to do smaller personal pizzas, keto style. This is so simple, tasty and not bad for ya.

Not a good picture but pizza taste great

This is what we do and you can do the same or experiment, change things up just pay attention to your ingredients. We take low carb tortillas, Roa’s marinara sauce, cheeses (I used Parmesan & Mozzarella) and this one I used some pulled pork I had made a few days before, simple.

We like the HEB tortillas, but there are many out there to choose from:

Roa's Marinara Sauce is great for many recipes, very clean ingredients and not to bad on the carb count.

Recipe: Preheat oven to 350 degrees, on a cookie sheet place your tortillas let them get lightly browned about 5 minutes. Remove from oven, put a nice layer of mozzarella cheese on and return it to the over just for a few minutes till cheese starts to melt. While that is going on I used a non-stick pan to heat up some pulled pork, seasoned with salt & pepper, once it starting to sizzle I add some of the Roa’s marinara sauce. Pull your tortilla covered in melted cheese out of the oven, spread some of your sauced pork over and then cover the top with a mix of Mozzarella & Parmesan cheese, run it back into the over till nice melt with a little browning on top. Pull it out and WARNING: It’s going to be HOT! Let it stand for a few seconds before diving in and enjoy.

I used the pulled pork because I didn’t want to waist it but you can use pretty much any toppings from chicken, pepperonis maybe go veggie with some spinach, what ever you want to create. Try different types of cheeses, just give it a try I think you will like it I know my wife and I sure did.

Please leave us comments, let me know what topics you would like us to cover. Let us know how keto is working for you or if your having any issues. We want to help you with getting fit and enjoying life. God bless.

Low-Carb Lasagna – Getting Your Italian On

Ok we are back and I don’t know about you but after the holidays are over and I have gotten my turkey and ham fix, now it’s time for some good old fashion Italian food, Lasagna. I have made this recipe many times and my wife & I love it, taste and texture are on point. It’s super easy to make and remember to try different recipes to keep you keto journey exciting and not boring. Food has to have good flavor, if it’s boring your not going to want to stick with it, so try new stuff. I would suggest to make a list of your favorite foods and see if there are keto recipes for them, that’s what I did and still do.

Ingredients

  • ½ yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¾ lb fresh ground Italian sausage (or take sausage out of skin)
  • ¾ lb ground beef
  • 24 oz. unsweetened marinara sauce (we use Rao’s marinara sauce)
  • 16 oz. ricotta cheese (Whole Milk Ricotta cheese)
  • ½ lb sliced deli chicken breast or turkey (thick slice not pre-packaged)
  • ¾ lb Mozzarella cheese, sliced or shredded mozzarella
  • ¾ cup Parmesan cheese (not the can, shred your own)
  1. Brown the ground beef, onion & sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat. Season with salt & pepper. Add additional seasoning like basil or oregano if desired.
  2. Once the meat is cooked until no longer pink, strain and add in the marinara sauce. Stir to combine and let simmer on low for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. In a casserole dish, spread a small amount of red sauce on the bottom. Add a layer of chicken slices. Followed by another layer of red sauce and layer of ricotta cheese then add layer of mozzarella cheese. Repeat the layers 2-3 times. End the layers with red sauce and then remaining mozzarella cheese.
  4. Pre-Heat oven at 400 degrees, Bake in the oven at 400 for 15 or 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly on top. Once you take it out of the oven let it cool for about 10 minutes before serving. At this point the house should smell like Olive Garden and lucky for you there is seating available…
