Sugar Free Balsamic Glaze

This glaze (or reduction) is perfect drizzled over some mozzarella, grape tomatoes, and basil (hello caprese). Make it even more fun by making a salad on a stick using skewers. Balsamic glaze is also great drizzled over bruschetta, grilled veggies, margarita pizzas, and essentially any summer time fare like berries, goat cheese, crudite, etc!

Sugar Free Balsamic Glaze

This two ingredient recipe is super easy to make and pairs well with many fruits, cheese, and veggies. The consistently should be like a warmed honey.

Keto Korean BBQ Inspired Salad

One of our favorite keto eating activities is going to KBBQ restaurants and stuffing our faces with loads of unmarinated meats and going ham on Korean KBBQ sides. This salad is inspired by the salads served at many kbbq restaurants. Make it your own by adding your favorite greens or veggies.

Eggfast 101

An egg fast is a short term (3-5 days) way of eating that can help individuals jump in (or back into) a state of ketosis (when the body adjusts from burning glycogen from carbs to burning fat from food and the fat stored in their body). It is essentially a ketogenic diet in its simplest form.

There are many variations on the guidelines for the egg fast, but typically, the meals and snacks consist of only eggs and healthy fats, including full-fat cheese.

The two basic rules are:
1. Eat at least 6 eggs a day, along with a teaspoon of a healthy fat (like butter or coconut oil). We typically just eat when we are hungry and stop when we are full. Some days that looks like 10 eggs, others it might even be one.
2. Six ounces of cheese are allowed.
3. Once the three days are over, it is advised to transition out of the egg fast by slowly incorporating regular keto foods back into your diet. Example: Day 1,2,3 are eggfast days. Day 4 is two eggfast meals and one regular meal. Day 5 is one eggfast meal and two regular meals.

Everyone’s egg fast experience will vary. We have done several rounds of egg fasts, and with each round, we have learned what has worked, and what has not worked for us personally. Modifications we have made are allowing zero calorie/zero carb sweeteners, herbs/seasonings 1g net carb or less, fitting in intermittent fasting, and drinking at least 1 gallon of water a day. The trick to not hating eggs after the three days is to switch up the textures (fried, hard boiled, poached, scrambled, etc).

Sugar Free Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sugar Free Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies

OMG ya’ll…these taste just like the grocery store bakery ones…like dare I say almost like the packaged Nestle Toll House cookies too. The trick to these is to really watch them or they will burn easily and also let them cool 100% before digging in or else they will fall apart in your hands.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Use a hand mixer or thoroughly mix the butter, egg, vanilla, and sweetener.
  • Add baking powder, almond flour, chocolate chips, and instant pudding mix to the butter mixture and continue mixing until everything is incorporated.
  • Use a small cookie scoop or tablespoon to portion out the cookie dough onto a baking tray. Pro-tip: line the tray with parchment paper for easy clean up.
  • Use a rubber spatula or your fingers to slightly flatten the dough as it will not flatten like a flour/sugar cookie.
  • Bake the cookies at 350 degrees between 5-10 minutes depending on your oven. I use a toaster oven, so the bake time will vary for you. The cookies are ready as soon as you seen any golden color to them. You don’t want them to be golden all over as almond flour can burn quickly.
  • Let them cool completely before eating!

FAQ: “What do you do with your leftover fry oil?”

Well let me answer that question – something we get almost 20 times daily any time we feature a video of us frying food on our Instagram account.

Short answer: we save it and continue using it until it is too dark or gets cloudy.

Here’s the scoop…

Our families have always deep fried foods since before we can even remember. Back in the day, there would be a designated “frying pot” where the oil would sit until someone needed to fry something – nowadays, in our own homes, here is what we do:

  1. Let the oil cool completely.
  2. Place a mesh strainer at the mouth of a large jar and pour the oil in there. You want the big bits to get caught so it doesn’t end up floating around in the jar. The reason you want to strain the oil is so when you reuse the oil, it doesn’t make the oil darker than it needs to be. It also helps keep the oil tasting fresher (in our opinion).
  3. Close the jar and store at room temperature.
  4. We reuse the oil until it becomes a brown color but that is completely up to you. The darker the oil, the darker your food will look after you fry it, so just adjust the amount of times you reuse based on the color and preference you have.

Now some additional questions we know y’all are going to have:

  1. What kind of oil do you use? We like to use avocado oil because it is clean and has a high smoke point. Use what oil you can afford and are comfortable cooking with. Canola oil, peanut oil, and soybean oil are all oils we have fried with – they are just very processed.
  2. How many times do you re-use oil? Depending on what we fry, it’s 5-6 times. If we fry fish, the oil is dunzo because the smell and taste will not go away.
  3. What deep fryer do you recommend?

Sugar Free Pudding Cookies

These are an OG recipe for us because when we jumped back into the keto lifestyle, these kept us afloat as the pounds started to melt off. Now, we aren’t saying these are going to help you shed the lbs, but they will satisfy your sweet tooth so you don’t reach for the sugar filled carbs. For those of you who practice a clean way of eating – THESE ARE NOT FOR YOU. Since this recipe calls for instant pudding powder, we like to call this “dirty keto”, which means there are processed ingredients in the pudding mix – so please keep that in mind as you start gathering the ingredients for these delicious cookies. BY THE WAY – THE COOKIES IN THE FEATURED PHOTO ARE BANANA CREAM PIE FLAVOR AND THEY TASTE LIKE BANANA TAFFY, just sayin’.

The texture of these cookies is soft and chewy, especially if you under cook them like I usually do. I can make 20 cookies from this batch and store them in the fridge to keep them super fresh.

Some notes:

  1. I have no idea if coconut flour will yield the same result – but if you try, know that you it’s a 1:4 coconut to almond ratio.
  2. I use vanilla flavor for chocolate chip cookies. In the past, we have also done pistachio cookies, double chocolate chip cookies as well using pistachio and chocolate pudding packets.

Eggfast Savory Waffle

I’m not the biggest fan of the texture of the (egg+cream cheese waffles) so this version gives me the chew I need to feel like I’m eating a reggo eggo! P.S. it’s best served fresh.

Eggfast Savory Waffle

This gives us serious Fogo de Chao bread vibes.

Cook Time: 4 minutes

Cuisine: American

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella (shredded)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp parmesan cheese (grated)
  • cracked black pepper (to taste)

Instructions

  • Mix the egg with shredded mozzarella, tsp of baking powder, tablespoon of grated Parmesan, and cracked black pepper.
  • Fill the waffle maker starting from the middle and leave a gap as you get close to the edge of the iron. The “batter” will expand as it cooks, be careful not to over fill as it will spill out! Let it cook for at least 2 minutes but you’ll know it’s done when it gets crispy. If you open the iron and you see cheese strings, it’s not ready! I used a dash mini waffle iron.
  • Spread 1/2-1 tablespoon of cream cheese and sprinkle with everything but the bagel seasoning. This gives you bagel vibes for sure.

No Bake Sugar Free Jello Pie

If you’re a fan of jello salad, then you’ll be fan of this pie. This is a major throwback to some retro desserts but it’s so darn easy to make and is no fuss with the no bake aspect. I used the shortcut method to set the jello which makes it even quicker to put together.

The texture of the filling is like a super fluffy mousse. Add any extra filling into mason jars to have a nice sweet treat the rest of the week!

Asian Mom Eggs

If you are Asian, there’s a good chance you’ve had this style of scrambled eggs at some point or another in your life. Something about the combo of fish sauce, eggs, and scallions is unbeatable and takes you back to a time when things were simpler. If you are not Asian but enjoy courses like Egg Fu Young, or changing up your egg game, this one’s a really great recipe to try.

Literally the easiest dessert EVER!! If you’re strict keto or tracking total carbs, this one’s not for you. If you’re a little lax and want a sinful dessert without the guilt, this is perfect for you. It is definitely dirty keto but you can EASILY clean it up with your own home made version. I used to make this all the time with pre made pie crust and chips ahoy and OMG I could probably kill an entire pie.

If you have leftover keto cookies and want to use them up, use these in place of the High Key Cookies that we use for the demo. It’s super hot and muggy in Minnesota right now so baking is not an option until it cools down.

Keto No Bake Cookie Pie

Too easy but perfect for hot summer days when you just don't want to turn the oven on.
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: cookie pie, cookies, no bake, pie
Servings: 10 people

Ingredients

  • 2 bags keto chocolate chip cookies (if you don't have access to packaged keto cookies, make your own – our chocolate chip pudding cookies are a good sub)
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice (I used 2%)
  • 1 keto pie crust i used Diamond Pie Crust from Walmart. They have walnut or pecan options. You can make your own if you want to clean it up.
  • 6-8 oz Sugar Free Cool Whip (thawed) You can also make your own if you want to clean it up.

Instructions

  • Dip a little over 1/2 of a bag of mini cookies in milk and place them on the pie crust (if you're using your own cookies, dip 4-5 cookies in milk)
  • Spread 1/3 of the cool whip over the cookie layer.
  • Dip more cookies in milk to form the next layer of the pie.
  • Spread another 1/3 of the cool whip mixture over the second cookie layer.
  • Crumble up the remaining cookies and sprinkle them over the second cool whip layer.
  • Cover the pie and let it cool for at least 4-6 hours before serving for the best results. You want the cookie pieces to soften.
