Keto Fudge – Easy, Taste Great & It’s Fudge

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)

We used Hershey’s on this batch

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.

Keto Sloppy Joe’s – Quick & Easy

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, ITSP Garlic 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 1/4CP Truvia 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.

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.
