Keto Secret Weapon Number 3 – Chocolate Whipped Cream

This simple recipe for chocolate whipped cream saved my life (well, not literally…but kinda!) the first time I followed a low-carb diet! It was W-A-Y back in 1982 when I was only 20 years old. My husband (at the time) was in the U.S. Army and had just been deployed to Germany. Our two-year-old son and I had not been approved for an accompanied tour (yet) so, we moved ‘back home’ to Utah while we…

Our Favorite New Treat: The Chaffle

I think it was a video post in my feed on Facebook that first introduced me to the whole Chaffle phenomenon…though I don’t recall who the poster was. And I was so captivated by the idea that I immediately logged onto my Amazon account and searched for the Dash Mini Waffle Maker so that I could try making these low-carb waffles myself. Wow! What a revelation! These little puppies have become my new, favorite, go-to…

Embracing My Swedish Heritage

My Swedish Ancestry Is Calling To Me It definitely feels like Fall in Forest Grove, Oregon. The cooler weather makes me think about my Scandinavian ancestry. I’m Swedish on my mother’s side. Her mom, my grandmother, emigrated to the United States with her family in 1903.  Their home was in Stockholm. She passed away when my mom was only 15 years old, so I never got to meet her. But I heard lots of stories…

Keto-Friendly Parmesan Crisps

I seriously thought I came up with this idea for Parmesan crisps, on my own, “back in the day” when I first started following a low-carb diet. And, in truth, I still do these differently than most people. Definitely different than this recipe. But the following video does a good job of offering some really great options and versions that I hadn’t tried before. My own recipe hasn’t been used for making small “chips”, like…

Delicious and Nutritious Keto Smoothie Recipes

Are smoothies okay on a keto diet? While most smoothie recipes and store-bought shakes are loaded with fruit and added sugar, keto smoothies are nutritionally very different. Rather than a candy bar’s worth of sugar, subsequent energy crash, and/or nap, and more carb cravings, these smoothies will keep your tummy full and your brain alert for hours. You can thank the healthy fats and a few other key ingredients for these smoothies not kicking you…

Low Carb Keto Flatbread Recipe

I enjoyed this recipe for keto flatbread by Heavenly Fan. She mentions that this recipe is also vegan…but it works perfectly well for both a traditional keto/low carb diet as well as vegan keto. This recipe looks simple enough and a great substitute for store-bought, higher-carb flatbread or tortillas purchased at the grocery store. If you like the idea of using low-carb wraps in place of traditional bread for sandwiches, then this low-carb keto flatbread…
