Spaghetti (Meat) Sauce

I love spaghetti and am perfectly happy to use zoodles as my pasta replacement, but I needed a sauce. Here is what I have come up with. You could leave out the beef broth, but I found it cuts the carbs from the tomatoes and creates a rich flavor without diluting the traditional taste. This... Continue Reading →

French Onion Zoodle Bake

I love French Onion Soup, it’s my all time favorite. I do order it in restaurants, usually without the bread, but I never really know what’s in it...This isn’t a soup, but it has all the flavor of a good french onion soup though. I think I might play with it and see if I... Continue Reading →

Fresh vegetable plate with dipSeasonal vegetables – grilled or roasted. Bok choy, zucchini, onions, cabbageGreen beans – Plain or add some butter... Continue Reading →

Make ahead – Meal prep

Sometime the key to success with keto is having something to grab when you need it. Meal prepping and ready to go foods can help. I don't personally pre-make my meals (lots of people do though) I don't know what I want to eat an hour from now, let alone a week from now. Mostly... Continue Reading →
