Lazy Pulled BBQ Chicken – Keto Style – Low Carb

I came up with this BBQ Chicken recipe when I needed to find a way to add fat to a bag of skinless, boneless chicken breasts I had bought before I went Keto. I now use mostly chicken thighs and legs with skin. If I do use chicken breasts, it’s usually in a recipe such…


Keto and Stress. Finding Healthy Ways to Bring Comfort

Face it, we all experience stress to some extent. We need to have a game plan on how to incorporate Keto into those times of stress so we can eat healthily and support our bodies.

There comes a time when you realise that Keto is not a ‘diet’ it’s a lifestyle. I am currently in an incredibly stressful season involving circumstances far beyond my control. This season will eventually pass, but as a result of the stress, I’ve gained two or three pounds. Those pounds are not a result of…


Keto Friendly Kale, Broccoli, and Brussel Sprouts Salad

Kale, Broccoli, and Brussel Sprouts Salad. This is great for potlucks. Keto Friendly, full of vitamins, fibre, and micronutrients.

To say I am not a fan of cooked kale in any form is an understatement. However, I love that packaged Sweet Kale Salad Kit that is sold at Costco and most supermarkets across Canada. The problem with that salad mix is that the enclosed dressing is full of sugar. The dried cranberries in the…

Did I mention I live on a pretty tight budget? Canned fish is the only way I can afford to eat fish. This Salmon or Tuna Salad is yummy and colourful, full of protein, and full of heart-healthy Omega-3 Fats. I try to have two meals a week featuring fish. The cheese crisps are so…

Winter arrived precisely at 2:45 PM on December 4, 2016. Never mind what the calendar said! After church, I decided to make a quick trip up to my local City Market to grab a few things for a Keto Friendly Taco Salad. I’ll post a recipe for that later on! I left behind a bright,…


Can a Disabled Person Lose Weight with a Keto Diet?

Is it possible for a disabled person to lose weight and be more healthy by following a keto diet? This person living with Charcot Marie Tooth Disease and Gastroparesis and who had gallbladder surgery believes so!

A little about me. I am a disabled person living with a neuromuscular disease called Charcot Marie Tooth DiseaseĀ (CMT). I have some of the rarer complications than many individuals who live with this genetic disease. I use a cane, walker, or power-chair depending on the weather conditions or activity I will be participating in. I…

I love fried chicken, and this Oven Baked Fried Chicken Recipe is a perfect marriage of an occasional treat while keeping that treat low-carb and Keto friendly. This dish is also gluten-free but satisfies those of us who miss breaded fried chicken. My secret glue to stick crushed pork rinds to chicken? Mayonnaise! Mayo is…


Creamy Spinach and Ground Beef – Low Carb & Keto

Low Carb Keto Style Creamy Spinach and Ground Beef

This was my first experience cooking Keto Style, I have improved since. For a newbie, I would say my attempt at incorporating fresh greens into my diet turned out pretty well. I’ve made several versions of this simple recipe since. I’ve even scrambled eggs with spinach. Green eggs! Failure confessions: I substituted kale. Let’s just…
