Butter Chicken is a super rich tomato and cream based dish from India. It’s best served over rice but in our keto case, goes perfectly over a bed of cauli rice. One of the ingredients needed for the sauce is garam masala. I don’t know if it was just me – but it seems like there is a serious garam masala shortage in the state of Minnesota. I went to three stores to find some and all were SOLD OUT. With that being said, I didn’t want to make garam masala from scratch so semi homemade was the direction I decided to go. I took my favorite elements of butter chicken and added the ingredients I liked best in conjunction with a pre-made sauce I purchased from Target.

This semi-homemade dish is perfect when you want some comfort food in a flash.

Guide to Hot Pot & KBBQ Grill’n

If you watch our instagram stories you know we love eating hot pot/bbq and YESSS, it can be keto. Most of the time Hot Pot & KBBQ would be cooked using two separate appliances but now with this awesome 2-in-1 gadget, we can have the best of both worlds in one sitting.

Since we get so many messages when we post about it in Instagram stories we figured a blog post was NECESSARY lol so here’s an overview with some tips n tricks. 


What is it? 

Both hot pot and kbbq grill is a dining experience that you can have with your friends and family in the comfort of your own home. You cook thinly sliced meats, vegetables, and low carb noodles via broth or griddle. Once it’s cooked to your liking, you can dip it in your sauce of choice and enjoy till you are stuffed and can’t breathe. Just kidding…or am I? 

Your spread can be as extreme or simple as you want. The beauty of this way of eating is that you literally have endless options that can fit your keto/low carb needs and the carbies in your life without having to adjust too much or making a separate meal.

Low carb Hot Pot

Protein: Thinly sliced beef brisket, pork belly, and ribeye is my fav. Along with beef (pho) meatballs and fish meatballs. Most of these items can be found in an Asian Market. Since we moved to Cali we enjoy going to Hmart to find these goodies. Hmart has a large variety of meat fresh/frozen and basically all the essentials you need. 

Vegetables: Watercress, spinach, straw mushrooms, enoki mushrooms, and seafood mushrooms are delicious and fulfilling. 

Noodles: If I want to throw noodles in the mix, I use “Healthy Noodles” from Costco. Find the scoop on these noodles here > Healthy Noodles

The carbies in my life enjoy vermicelli or rice noodles.

Dipping Sauce: This is definitely a personal preference. Spicy, sweet, salty, sour…it’s all up to you! My fav is spicy…of course. I start off with 1 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp red wine vinegar, garlic, heaping scoop of hot oil, fresh Thai chili peppers, and cilantro. Try this brand if you want a clean version of soy sauce.

Hot Pot Broth: 

We prefer using pre-made bases because it’s simple and quick. Most of the pre-made bases are a bit dirtyyyy keto but we are okay with it. If you prefer, make any of your favorite flavored broth as your base to dip. Thai Tom Yum, pork, or beef broth are some other popular bases. Here’s the pre made base we like. 

Low Carb KBBQ

Protein: Similar to hot pot, thinly sliced beef brisket, pork belly, and ribeye won’t do you wrong. Usually I stick with the non marinated meat at home and kbbq restaurants since I enjoy the flavor in the sauce and the taste of the grill. But if you like marinated meat check out  our recipe. >> Keto-Friendly Beet Bulgogi

Vegetables: I prefer having the veggies in the hot pot broth vs kbbq but the fam likes grilled white onions, mushrooms, jalapeños, kimchi, and salad. Here’s our recipe for a Keto Korean BBQ inspired salad. 

I do like to use thinly sliced pickled radish to wrap the meat in though with fresh jalapeños. Pickled radish wraps are a not a substitute for rice paper but it’s a great alternative to wrap your meat in. >> Pickled Radish Wraps

Noodles: I would do the same as hot pot and use healthy noodles. 

Dipping Sauce: For the kbbq grill I like to do sesame oil with a dash of salt or the same concoction as hot pot. 

Griddle: The griddle is non-stick but adding butter to cook the non marinated meats is bombbb.

What you need:

Gadget: This is non stick and super easy to clean. After use I unplug the cord and drain all the grease to dispose of properly then rinse and scrub with a sponge just like a pan. Then I just dry with a paper towel and leave it on the table for the next round or store in the cabinet. 

Tongs: Use tongs or chopsticks to pick up the delicious meats and stay a safe distance from the griddle lol 

Strainer: Not necessary but great to have for hotpot so you can retrieve your meats and veggies easier if you don’t want additional broth.


Here’s the Scoop on Healthy Noodle

Every time we EVER post anything about the infamous Healthy Noodle from Costco, without fail, we receive hundreds of questions, comments, and general messages in our box related to this product.

Here’s the scoop:

  1. What are they? These are gluten free, low carb, fat free, sugar free, cholesterol free and dairy free flat noodles. The brand is called Healthy Noodle, literally. They are 5g total carbs with 4 g fiber, leaving 1g net.
  2. What do they taste like? They are neutral in taste and do not have an odor – unlike shirataki noodles. They are however, in a package stored in a clear liquid to preserve its texture and taste.
  3. Are these like Shirataki? No! They do not have the same smell, taste, or texture. They are stored in a liquid though and are ready to eat hot or cold.
  4. What are they made of? Water, soybean fiber powder, cellulose, sodium alginate, yam konjac powder, calcium chloride, and salt.
  5. What is the texture like? It is similar to a flat rice noodle (pho) – however it doesn’t have the same chew (so keep that in mind).
  6. How do you cook it? You don’t have to! It’s ready to eat so you throw it in whatever dish you want to use it for. We actually DO NOT RECOMMEND cooking it for more than a minute in heat because it will break apart. When we eat the noods, it’s almost ALWAYS in soups. We heat up the broth and then throw the noodles in there right before we eat. You can definitely give them a quick rinse before you eat them (we use warm water).
  7. Where can you get these? THE QUESTION OF THE HOUR – these can be purchase at Costco. The costco item number is 1027760 so call your local store and ask an associate if they carry that product number. They are between $13-15 for a case at Costco depending on your region.
  8. If you do not want to call your local store, go to the facebook account where they often post updates on where they sell their Healthy Noodles.
  9. What recipes do you have with these noodles? None! We do not recommend cooking these in heat or they will break apart. Use them like you would noodles and pour a sauce, dressing, or whatever you want on top. They are the best experience that way. People like to eat them with pasta sauce, in soups, salads, all up to you. We would consider this a dupe for flat rice noodles so take that information and get creative!
  10. What’s a good hack? Rinse these out, store them in a zip lock back, and bring them to your favorite Pho or Hot Pot restaurant!

If you’re looking for inspo, here are some delicious ones:

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.

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.

How to Order the Keto Pink Drink + Matcha Cold Foam at Starbucks

We love to ketofy our favorite comfort foods and beverages so there’s something about being able to ketofy this Starbucks drink that makes it feel even that much better.

Here’s how to order:

“Hi, may I please get a Grande Passionfruit Iced Tea, no water, add light heavy cream, with 1-2 packets of stevia… and can you please top it with cold foam made with heavy cream, sugar free vanilla, and a scoop of matcha powder?”

They should be able to make this beverage request for you with no issues. They will point out that there is sugar in the matcha powder – so order based on your keto preferences. There is about 5g of sugar in one scoop of matcha powder. We eat and drink to fit our macros, so this works as a treat for us.

Prik Glua – Thai Salt Chili Sugar Dip

Ya’ll, this dip instantly enhances any fruit you decide to grace this magic dust on – especially ones that have a little sourness to them, like starfruit, kiwis, watermelon, and mangos. If you are living the low carb lifestyle, our favorite substitute for sugar is classic monkfruit sweetener. Allulose is also a great alternative.

Mix equal parts monkfruit sweetener, salt, and dried chili flakes. That’s it!

77 Ways to Pocket-fy Your Meals

Okay, here’s the dealio…we are obsessed with pockets. What is a pocket? It is a meal stuffed into a triangular pocket of deliciousness using flatbread strips and your filling of choice. We exclusively use our holy grail flatbread, Cutdacarb, because it’s easy to work with, takes on whatever flavor you season it with, and it fries up fast as hell. We rely on pocket-fying foods because it is a is a low carb hack to control your carb intake but also still get the satisfaction of eating your favorite foods.

The idea for pocket-fying things is based on our love of Hot Pockets (cue theme song) and the technique of folding a paper football or Greek Spanikopita (shout out to my grade school friend’s Yia Yia for showing us how to do this when we were 8 years old). The technique to fold is the same for all of these. See diagram below:

The pocket-fy process involves picking your filling of choice, adding it at the bottom of the flatbread strip, and using the folding technique shown above.

We deep fry 90% of our pockets in avocado oil. The rest are either pan fried in butter or baked in our toaster oven after being sprayed with avocado oil. Our Keto baes have used their air fryers as well.
