Warm, tomatoey, melty cheese pizza! Following a low carb diet doesn’t mean giving up your traditional pizza night. For several years, I’ve been making keto pizza with a grain-free mixture of egg and cheese in place of crust. Today, I decided to add chicken to make it a satisfying main course for dinner.
Maybe you’ve visited your MD recently for your annual physical. She points out to you that the “couch potato” lifestyle you adhere to is not the best medicine for aging well. So she suggests that maybe you should consider doing some exercise. Or maybe you’re reaching middle age and realize you’re…
Emergency recipe! While I was writing up my Thanksgiving menu, I realized that I didn’t have a stuffing recipe planned. Oh my. The Thanksgiving meal just doesn’t feel complete without stuffing. Since I’m following a low carb diet, however, bread stuffing is a no-no. Cauliflower to the rescue.

Curling up on the couch with a steaming bowl of soup is one of the best ways to warm up on a crisp autumn day. So, when I saw the leaves beginning to fall from the trees, I whipped up this creamy broccoli cheddar soup. It’s loaded with cheese and tender broccoli floating in a velvety cream broth.
As I’m writing this, it’s absolutely pouring rain outside and that makes it the kind of day for Philly cheesesteaks. The kind of day when you just want to curl up with some rainy day comfort food. This popular fast food combo originated in Philadelphia hence the name Philly cheesesteak.
I remember I loved Sloppy Joes when I was a kid — maybe because they were so messy and fun to eat. But, really, they’re delicious no matter what age you are. They’re always a great go-to meal on busy days because they come together so quickly.
Today, I was reminiscing with my daughter about the amazing bagels we used to get at a local deli when we lived in New York. I don’t eat bagels anymore because I’m on a low carb diet, but I wondered if there was a way to make a keto-friendly snack that would capture our favorite bagel flavor.
