    It’s Pizza Night

    Here ya go, one of the many pizza-making projects me and my Italian husband enjoy making together. This time, I used a new keto crust made with herbs and coconut flour, eggs and cheese-the new fathead dough for me. The sauce is always the same-Aldi Vodka Sauce because it has the fewest net carbs. The toppings, always Aldi-this time sausage, green pepper, kalamata olive, arthichoke and feta-stuffed huge green olives, sliced. topped with grated parm and mozzarella. First, let’s talk about the pizza dough. This one is nut-free, made with coconut flour. HERE is the link I used-Sugar-Free Mom’s recipe. The only change I made was to mix in my…

    A-L-D-I for Low Carb and K-e-t-o

    Here’s my haul today, more than usual due to restocking after the holidays-today is New Year’s Eve. Hello 2019! I’m ready for ya! I buy everything at Aldi. Everything. All low carb and keto recipes are made with 100% Aldi ingredients, which I find to be the best and most cost efficient for quality ingredients. The bulk pork sausage is wonderful and was 1.89 today (.10 off). We eat this every single morning with eggs. Without a doubt, Aldi has the best buys on dairy products, and they are quality, high quality…just look at the Pure Irish butter. I’ll go into more detail later, but for now, this gives you…

    A Doctor’s Approval

    There are times I don’t trust a doctor and times that I do. This is a time I trusted. My doctor is female, around my age and an internal medicine physician. She has earned my trust, or at least 85% of it, which is saying a lot for me. I asked her about the keto/low carb eating everyone and their brother is on and her opinion. Simple and truthful, she said her patients following both have achieved lower weight, and along with the weight, lower blood pressure, cholesterol and no more type 2 Diabetes, in some cases. My husband has lost over 100 pounds on low carb eating, so I’m…

    Baked Zucchini Noodles

    A great technique to cook spiralized zucchini in the oven without it getting mushy, which is not a good thing. Susan, aka “Grandma” to Brandon shared it with us last night at dinner, and it’s waaaaay better than soggy zoodles! 250 degrees. Spiralize the zucchini into fine noodles. Place on dry paper towels, enough to cover the baking sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt and bake 30 minutes-it sweats out the moisture, and the noodles are similar to al dente pasta-voila!

    The Avocado Quesadilla

    The Avocado ~  160 calories, 2 grams of protein and 15 grams of healthy fats.

    Pimento Cheese

    Maybe it’s a Southern thing, but pimento cheese is a staple in the South. We all grew up on it-filling soft, white bread (sometimes crustless) with it. This is my own creation for a homemade spread. Use it to fill sandwiches or on celery. I put it on lowcarb wraps. You can also add fresh, minced jalapeno peppers to the mix-you won’t be sorry you did. Print Pimento Cheese Servings 8 Ingredients 1 c medium cheddar or longhorn cheese grated 3/4 c monterey jack cheese grated 1/2 c sharp cheddar cheese grated 2/3 c real mayonnaise not salad dressing-i use duke's 4 oz cream cheese room temperature 4 Tbsp diced…
