Afternoon keto crew, so at HEB this morning always look in the clearance section you never know what hidden jewels you might find.
Today’s keto find was this awesome Strawberry Sparkling Water Beverage. It’s 0 carbs, 0 sugars, 0 calories, and it taste great. I was wondering because I am not big on most sparkling water drinks but this is sweet and delicious.
Price we got this 12 pack for, drum roll please: $1.49 not each but the whole 12 pack. Now that’s a deal. Keto doesn’t have to cost a lot.
Hello Keto Crew, Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all. Doing a little last minute grocery shopping this beautiful Christmas Eve and stopped in at our local HEB Store, now every time we shop I love to check if there is a clearance section and just about all stores these days have one. I am always on the hunt for bargains and yes I do coupons when I can find them. No shame in my shopping game plus it drives my wife nuts…
So todays find was energy drinks, Noo Fuzion. I had never heard of them before but what caught my eye was the labeling looked a lot like Bang Energy drinks. I told my wife it looks pretty close to the Bang’s with the 9 EAA Aminos around the top, 0 carbs, 0 sugars it does have 4 or 5 calories depending on the one you pick. So after getting home and trying there Candy Apple Crisp flavor to me and the wife it taste pretty much the same. I started reading the can and most of the ingredient are the same then I start looking at the fine print and low and behold I see a product of Bang Energy…
So you want to know the price on my deal of the day? We got 12 of them and price on clearance .62 ea. Merry Christmas to me & Debbie. I you see them, pick one up give it a try.
Have a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Years. Please LIKE, SHARE & SUBSCRIBE
Here are ten great low-carb vegetables, tasty and rich in nutrients but with very few carbs. We’ve attempted to sort them by how popular and useful they are in low-carb cooking.
All numbers are net carbs per 100 grams (3½ ounces).
Cauliflower – 3 g. Perhaps the most classic and iconic of all low-carb vegetables. The base of cauliflower rice and cauliflower mash.
Cabbage – 3 g. Another great low-carb vegetable. Who doesn’t love butter-fried green cabbage or the simply amazing Asian cabbage stir-fry?
Avocado – 2 g. Not just low carb, but also full of nutritious fat. Technically a fruit, but most people likely think of it as a vegetable. Avocado can be eaten in all kinds of ways, including on its own, in salads, or it can be used to make guacamole. Great source of good fats.
Broccoli – 4 g. Another great option that can replace pasta, rice or potatoes. Just fry it in butter or add some cheese for great-tasting side dishes.
Zucchini – 3 g. Try our zucchini fries or zucchini chips. Zucchini can also be used to make low-carb pasta, like in this low-carbonara or in keto-lasagna.
Spinach – 1 g. An extremely low-carb vegetable, spinach is full of vitamins and minerals and can be used many ways. It pairs beautifully with eggs, such as in our popular frittata.
Asparagus – 2 g. Revered as both a food and medicine – and aphrodisiac – by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans up to medieval times, asparagus is one of the world’s oldest cultivated vegetables. Nutritious and delicious! Try it wrapped with prosciutto and grilled, or in other tasty recipes
Kale – 3 g. Hardier than spinach, less watery, but just as nutrient-rich, kale can stand up to mincing, sautéing, baking, and much more. Cut into ribbons, it makes a great noodle substitute for zesty sauces.
Green beans – 4 g. French, diced and tossed in a salad, fricasseed and more, green beans taste great especially with added fats like butter, an olive-oil vinaigrette, or bacon.
Brussels sprouts – 5 g. Nutty, filling and nutritious, they are especially good roasted with olive oil and garlic, or with bacon or steam and serve with a cheese cream sauce.
One key to eating these awesome greens for me is to buy fresh, if your buying the frozen ones in the microwave pouches look over the ingredients. Sometimes it might seem healthier but look over the macros and you might be surprised.
Higher on the carbs & sugar, just keep a eye out for these. You can do better and when trying to stay keto we got to get the most out of what we eat.
So I should have gotten this review out yesterday but failed to so it’s Thanksgiving Eve and here it is, enjoy. Energy drink reviews on keto friendly energy drinks must goes on. C4 Energy Drink – Cotton Candy Flavor
Ok all please send me your ideas for what energy drinks to try & give me your jokes, keep them clean… Happy Thanksgiving all you keto crew.
I don’t know about you, but we love the holiday season and my wife and I spend hours decorating the house because it’s just fun. I was searching for some cool things to do different this year and came across a really easy to make Keto Gingerbread House. Now if you have little ones what a great way to get all of you together for some good ole holiday fun.
This is not my recipe so all credit goes to Anne @ Keto Focus she does some amazing keto recipes so go over to her site www.ketofocus.com check it out.
We will be posting more holiday recipes for everyone to enjoy especially with Thanksgiving coming. If you are looking for some recipe, let us know we will find a recipe or create one.
Holidays are coming and we are looking at different sweets that we on our keto journey and you can enjoy that are super easy to make and taste great. So here we are Keto Fudge, I found a recipe that is all that and my wife loves chocolate so if she likes it we got a winner.
Five whole ingredients and time, got to take your time in the cooking but it is so worth it. If your looking for a great holiday gift idea, try this out put in a cute box with a bow and bam.
So lets get started,
INGREDIENTS: – 1 cup heavy cream – 2 tbsp unsalted butter – 1 tbsp vanilla extract – 1/3 cup erythitrol (such as Pyure stevia) – 1 cup sugar free chocolate chips or bars (such as Lily’s)
DIRECTIONS: 1. Set a pan to medium-low heat. Add your heavy cream, butter, vanilla, and erythitrol. 2. Stir and wait for it to start bubbling then continue to stir for 15 minutes or until the mixture turns a golden brown and the sauce will thickens (it will thicken more as it cools). 3. Remove from heat. Add your chocolate chips and continually stir until they melt and evenly combine (don’t worry – they will melt with the residual heat). Let cool for about 15 minutes. 4. In the meantime, line a small dish with parchment paper on all sides, with enough overhang that you will be able to use it to lift the fudge out from the container. You can get fancy with the geometry and the folding, but it’s not necessary. 5. Pour the mixture in and spread out evenly. 6. Optional: top with your nuts of choice we like walnuts. 7. Place into the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. It will get nice and firm, pop out, cut into squares and we store in covered plastic container. Keep covered so it doesn’t dry out, it’s fudge and most important enjoy…
We hope you give this a try and again make a batch to give to someone. I love to let friends try that are beginning there keto journey so they can see there is some awesome, easy goodies you can enjoy while loosing weight. Please share and let us know about your keto life or what you would like to see. From our family to yours, enjoy.
Ok so was having a couple of friends over to watch football and they are not on keto so thought I would whip up something tasty and yes, keto,,, A little dirty keto but never the less still keto.
So you might wonder, what is dirty keto? If you’re following a clean diet, that means you’re avoiding processed foods, whereas a dirty keto diet is one that doesn’t focus as much on whole foods, but rather seeks to adhere only to the macro-nutrient ratio – that is, the ratio of fat, protein and carbs – of the diet. Now my wife and I stay on a pretty clean keto journey but every now and then we get a little dirty… and really the only dirty part was the bread. We use Aldi’s Zero Net Carbs bread.
Now what you need it a 1Lb of Ground Beef, 1TSP of Onion Powder, ITSPGarlic Powder, Pinch Salt & Pepper. In a skillet, mix ingredient and brown you beef over medium heat. After it good and browned, drain the fat, add a 12OZ can of Pureed Tomatoes and simmer, to that add 1/4CPTruvia Brown Sweetener. Now most important (taste it) add maybe little more salt or pepper, it’s up to you. Toast a couple slices of your keto bread, break out some of your finest paper plates (so no dishes to do) other than the pan you cooked in and enjoy.
So simple takes about 20-30 minutes to make, feeds four easy and our friends had no idea they where eating a keto dish. Great for kids, I know when I was a kid mom would wipe up some sloppy joe’s and we loved it. I really think this taste better than hers did but please don’t tell her I said so…
Please feel free to tell a friend about our site, let us know what you would like to see or if there is a dish you would like me to convert to keto I would love to give it a shot. I love trying new recipes and so does my wife. That’s it for now, enjoy your keto journey.
When I started my keto journey my wife and I agreed to give it a shot together. I have been struggling with my weight as long as I can remember, nothing like being a kid shopping in the husky section of sears right. I always struggled trying every diet out there and when I hit 277lbs and saw my daughters wedding pictures I decided to loose a little weight. I got down to 250lbs and a friend started sharing with me about keto diet. I started researching and talked with my wife and as I said before we concluded we would give it a shot. We started in March 2019 and by December of 2019 I was down from 250lbs to 198lbs, but it wasn’t just the weight it was going from wearing 3XL shirts to I was able to wear XL and pants from 44w to 36w. Today my weight stays at 174lbs, I wear shirts size L, pants still 36w, I shop in normal stores and find stuff right off the rack. Keto has changed my life and I know it can change yours.
There is a lot of info to digest on keto diet so I wanted to share a simple plan, just click on the button and find a new way of life, simple, easy and trust me well worth giving it a shot.
