Peace Love and Low Carb by Kyndra Holley - 3d ago

This keto Cucumber Greek Salad is a perfectly refreshing summer salad if you’re looking for a low carb side dish full of flavor. Serve chilled on its own, or turn it into a loaded Greek salad by adding grilled chicken.

The best cucumber salad recipe

One of my favorite parts about this time of year is all the summer salads. If you’re craving a lighter alternative to the typical creamy cucumber salad, you’ve got to make this Greek salad recipe. Spiralized cucumbers, red onions, cherry tomatoes, and kalamata olives are drizzled with zesty Italian dressing and balsamic, then tossed with feta cheese, chopped salami, and fresh herbs. The most delicious way to chill out during a hot summer day when you don’t want to cook anything.

Are cucumbers keto?

Cucumbers are a great option if you’re trying to stay keto or low carb. One cup of cucumbers has 4g total carbs. Because they’re 96% water, cucumbers are very low calorie and very hydrating. Cucumbers also contain lots of vitamins and minerals like vitamins C and K, magnesium, potassium, manganese, plus antioxidants from flavonoids, and tannins. You can replace the noodles in a chilled pasta dish so easily with cucumbers, whether you slice them or spiralize them. Cucumbers are also one of my favorite dippers to use in place of chips or crackers. When we are dining out at a restaurant and order something like spinach and artichoke dip or quest dip, I always ask for sliced cucumbers in place of the chips. They have such a great crunch!

How to use a spiral slicer:

This is my favorite spiral slicer –  the company name is literally Spiralizer. I like this spiralizer because you just select your blade, load your veggie, and crank out the spirals. There are a bunch of other blades that come with your purchase, so you can make all different kinds of veggie slices. You could use this for my Low Carb Pickled Red Onions if slicing onions isn’t your favorite. I like to spiralize the cucumbers in this recipe because they soak up my homemade low carb Greek salad dressing and still offer up a good crunch.

This Keto Chicken and Waffles recipe is combining the ultimate soul food with comfort food at its finest. This healthier version may be low carb, and gluten free, but it is packed with flavor.

What are chaffles?

Chicken and waffles, or chaffles, is a classic dish with fluffy waffles and tender crispy fried chicken. Typically, this dish is served with traditional maple syrup, but since this is a keto chicken and waffles recipe, I like to serve it with my favorite sugar free pancake syrup. This keto maple syrup goes perfectly on these gluten free waffles. A lot of people like to eat their chicken and waffles with syrup and hot sauce. YUM! If you think that sounds strange, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. It’s seriously the perfect combination of sweet and spicy.

Keto fried chicken … for breakfast?

The beauty about this gluten free chicken and waffles recipe is that you can enjoy it any time of day. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, nothing beats grain free waffles piled high with gluten free fried chicken. Top with a perfectly poached egg, serve with a side of bacon or sausage… it’s the perfect meal. To make this keto chicken and waffles recipe gluten free, we used low carb breading substitutions – crushed pork rinds and coconut flour. Some other great keto breading options are grated parmesan cheese, golden flaxseed meal, and blanched almond flour. They can all work to make a deliciously crunchy gluten free, keto-friendly breading mixture. It’s really just a matter of personal preference and mixing and matching to figure out the combination that you like best.

Where did chicken and waffles come from?

Chicken and waffles first became popular during the 1930s in America. Jazz clubs would let out very early in the morning, and diners would serve leftover fried chicken from the night before on a stack of fresh waffles. It only took about 90 years later to develop the best keto waffle recipe with keto fried chicken, but here we are. This dish is seriously keto comfort food at it’s finest. Whether you are eating it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, it is sure to satisfy.

Keto Chicken and Waffles
  • Author: Kyndra Holley
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 4 servings
Description

Using buttermilk will give these chicken and waffles a superb flavor, but using heavy cream will lower the overall carb count.

 

Ingredients for the chicken: for the waffles:
Instructions for the chicken:
  1. Put the chicken tenders in a bowl and cover with the buttermilk. Refrigerator for 24 hours. This will ensure that the chicken is very moist and tender.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Place the coconut flour in a shallow bowl.
  4. Crack the egg into a separate shallow bowl and fork whisk.
  5. In a third shallow bowl, combine the pork rinds, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper.
  6. Toss the chicken tenders in coconut flour, then dip in the egg wash, and then coat in the pork rind mixture.
  7. Line the breaded tenders in a single layer across the baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until they are crispy on the outside and cooked all the way through.
for the waffles:
  1. Preheat a waffle iron.
  2. Mix all of the waffle ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and beat until smooth.
  3. Lightly grease the waffle iron. Ladle the batter onto the center of the waffle iron; the amount will vary by waffle iron. Consult the manufacturer’s directions for the recommended amount of batter.
  4. Cook for 5 minutes or until the waffle iron stops steaming. Repeat this process until all of the batter is gone, regreasing the iron between waffles.
  5. Serve with sugar-free maple syrup and eggs cooked any way you like them.

Rich and delicious, this Keto Brownie Ice Cream is the perfect summer treat. It’s so good that you won’t even know it is low carb and gluten free.

Rich, chocolatey, sugar free ice cream loaded with keto brownies

No, this is not a dream. The most decadent dark chocolate ice cream is blended with almond butter and Fudgy Double Chocolate Keto Brownies — it’s everything you want in a chocolate ice cream recipe and so much more. Back in my high carb days, I would frequent Dairy Queen for a brownie blizzard. It was so rich and delicious, with chunks of chewy, fudgy brownies. I can recall the exact taste merely by thinking of it. Since those days are long behind me, I wanted a keto ice cream recipe that would satisfy that same craving. This Keto Brownie Ice Cream Recipe definitely fits the bill. Even if ice cream isn’t your thing, these gluten free brownies make a superb keto sweet treat all on their own. While this recipe does call for the use of an ice cream maker, it is definitely worth it. If you are looking for a no-churn keto ice cream recipe, be sure to check out my Low Carb Chocolate Mason Jar Ice Cream recipe.

Craving a keto brownie AND low carb ice cream?

Why not have both? This chocolate ice cream recipe goes beyond the average because it’s loaded with chunks of deliciously fudgy low carb flourless brownies. And because it’s loaded with healthy fats like real heavy cream, eggs, and smooth almond butter, it’ll curb that sweet tooth and make you feel satiated. Who needs a Snickers when you have a super satisfying low carb chocolate ice cream recipe?

Better than store-bought sugar free ice cream

If you check out the nutrition labels for sugar free ice cream at your local grocery store, you’ll likely find a bunch of junk ingredients. Glycerin, “natural flavors,” propylene glycol monoesters, cellulose gel, various gums, carrageenan, milk protein concentrate, sunflower oil, and even SUGAR … these are just some of the common ingredients listed. The easiest way to avoid ingredients like this in your ice cream? Make your own! Homemade ice cream is delicious and you’ll be able to recognize every single one of the ingredients. BUT, I highly recommend making a double or even triple batch, because this won’t last long!

Some fun ways to mix up this low carb ice cream recipe: In addition to this Keto Brownie Ice Cream, check out some of my other favorite low carb dessert recipes: Tips to ensure best results for this Keto Brownie Ice cream recipe:
  • SPECIAL EQUIPMENT: This recipe does call for the use of an ice cream machine. This is the one I recommend.
  • Pre-freeze your ice cream container for faster freezing
  • Using an alcohol based vanilla extract prevents the ice cream getting too hard, especially if you use erythritol as the sweetener as this sets the ice cream harder.
  • Using erythritol makes it set hard so just make sure you leave it out of the freezer to warm before scooping (20 minutes to one hour. I used powdered erythritol in this recipe and it was perfectly creamy and scoop-able once warmed a little from the freezer.

  • Prep Time: 3 hours
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 3 hours 30 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Heat 1 cup the heavy cream in a saucepan over low heat. Add the chocolate chips to the pan and stirring regularly, heat until the chocolate is fully melted. Remove from heat and allow too cool.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat erythritol and egg yolks together until pale and thick.
  3. Add the egg mixture into the cooled chocolate and mix to combine. Return the pan to low heat and stir continuously until it thickens, about 1 minute. Do not allow the mixture to come to a bubble or it will break. Pour the mix into a bowl and leave to cool.
  4. Using an electric mixer, whip the remaining 3/4 cup of heavy cream until thick and stiff peaks form. Fold the cooled chocolate mix, along with the almond butter and vanilla extract into the whipped cream. If the mixture is too thick, thin out with 2 to 3 tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk.
  5. Pour the ice cream mixture into an ice cream maker (I use and love this one) and process according to the manufacturers instructions. This could take 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the ice cream maker being used.
  6. Once the ice cream is done, transfer it to a large freezable container, like the loaf pan pictured. Fold in the brownie chunks and freeze for 1 to 2 hours, or until desired consistency is reached.
  7. Once you remove the ice cream from the freezer, allow it to sit on the counter to soften just slightly before enjoying.

This keto Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream is a total game changer. It’s creamy, fruity and sugar free! Full of keto friendly fats, it’s a frozen fat bomb treat you’ll want to make time and time again.

The best low carb ice cream recipe you will ever taste

There’s something classic about strawberry ice cream, especially in the summer. Juicy fresh strawberries are pureed and sweetened just a bit more with keto-friendly erythritol. The strawberry sauce is drizzled over a blend of thick and creamy homemade vanilla ice cream, then topped with a gluten-free crumb topping with an added protein boost. The protein ice cream you’d find in the freezer section of your grocery store just can’t compete with real homemade strawberry ice cream, especially with a cheesecake twist!

What’s better than strawberry shortcake ice cream? Strawberry cheesecake ice cream!

While there’s a time and a place for strawberry shortcake, this isn’t it. Why? Well, because sometimes you just want a rich, smooth, decadent strawberry ice cream recipe. A keto ice cream that combines mascarpone cheese, heavy cream, and creme fraiche for the creamiest ice cream EVER. Add unsweetened almond milk and that’s more than tres leches, that’s like … four leches.

Customize the flavor for the best sugar free ice cream ever

I highly recommend using strawberries in this recipe, but why stop there? You could do so many variations: blueberry cheesecake ice cream, blackberry cheesecake ice cream, raspberry cheesecake ice cream. Mix them all together: mixed berry cheesecake ice cream. You really can’t go wrong!

In addition to this Keto Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream, check out some of my other favorite keto dessert recipes: Tips to ensure the best results for this strawberry cheesecake keto ice cream:
  • SPECIAL EQUIPMENT: This recipe does call for the use of an ice cream machine. This is the one I recommend.
  • Pre-freeze your ice cream container for faster freezing
  • For a zestier cheesecake add 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice + 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest to the step with the heavy cream
  • If you don’t like xanthan gum you could try arrowroot powder or vegetable glycerin.
  • Cream cheese, eggs and creme fraiche must be at room temperature to avoid lumps.
  • Using an alcohol based vanilla extract prevents the ice cream getting too hard, especially if you use erythritol as the sweetener as this sets the ice cream harder.
  • Using erythritol makes it set hard so just make sure you leave it out of the freezer to warm before scooping (20 minutes to one hour. I used powdered erythritol in this recipe and it was perfectly creamy and scoop-able once warmed a little from the freezer.

Peace Love and Low Carb by Kyndra Holley - 2w ago

If you are craving low carb Chinese food, this paleo, keto Mongolian Beef is going to absolutely hit the spot. It is quick and easy to make, and bursting with flavor.

The best keto Mongolian beef recipe:

While the traditional Mongolian beef recipe is loaded with sugar, gluten, soy, and corn (from cornstarch), this is a healthier homemade low carb Mongolian beef recipe. Perfectly cooked flank steak strips are coated with sticky sweet sauce. The sauce has a bit of a kick from red pepper flakes and fresh grated ginger, plus a bit of umami flavor from fish sauce. While traditional restaurant and even homemade Chinese food recipes are not usually gluten free, this keto-friendly version is made gluten free by the use of tamari or coconut aminos.

How to make gluten free Chinese food recipes

Making gluten-free Chinese food is easy. Just swap regular soy sauce for tamari or coconut aminos. Coconut aminos are made from coconut sap. The sap is aged with salt, resulting in a really delicious paleo, soy-free, gluten-free option for your favorite keto Chinese food recipes. I love using coconut aminos, especially in a low carb beef recipe, the saltiness really compliments the beef without overpowering it. Big Tree Farms is my favorite brand of coconut aminos. If you aren’t a fan of coconut aminos, you can also use tamari or liquid aminos.

How to make cauliflower rice

You can definitely enjoy this recipe on its own, but if you’re missing a side of white rice, cauliflower rice is a great option. While you can probably find cauliflower rice in the frozen section of your grocery store, it’s super easy to make at home. Grab a head of cauliflower and cut it into florets. From there, you can either throw it in a food processor and pulse, or grate the florets with a cheese grater until it resembles grains of rice.

Before cooking, squeeze out any excess moisture with a paper towel. My favorite way to cook cauliflower rice is to sauté the cauliflower rice in a skillet with a tablespoon of toasted sesame oil. Heat the skillet to medium with the toasted sesame oil, add the cauliflower rice, season with coconut aminos, pepper, and ground ginger, then cook for 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. If you like your cauliflower rice more tender, you can put a lid on the skillet and let it steam. Cauliflower rice reheats really well in the microwave, and you can top it with a generous serving of Keto Mongolian Beef!

Here are some of my favorite cauliflower rice recipes – Chinese Sausage Cauliflower Fried Rice, Buttery Cauliflower Rice Pilaf, Creamy Mushroom Cauliflower Risotto, Cajun Cauliflower Rice, Cranberry Pecan Cauliflower Rice Stuffing

Todays post is a guest post from Sara of Real Balanced: Follow Real Balanced for delicious and keto-friendly recipes on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest!

“Hey, everyone! Sara Nelson of Real Balanced here. Growing up, my family would regularly order Chinese takeout and it was MY FAVORITE. Full of so much rich flavor, Asian-inspired dishes have always been on a regular rotation in my household.

This easy dinner recipe is made with a wide variety of ingredients including flank steak, minced garlic, green onions, ginger, golden monk fruit sweetener, and more. Plus, this dish is soy free (unlike many Mongolian Beef recipes) as, instead of soy sauce, liquid aminos is used.

Next time you find yourself wanting stir fry or anything with that familiar and delicious soy sauce-y taste, you’re going to want to whip up this dish! You won’t be disappointed.”

Keto Mongolian Beef
  • Author: Kyndra Holley
  • Prep Time: 25 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 ½ pounds flank steak
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons gluten free soy sauce or coconut aminos (I use this brand)
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • ½ cup golden monk fruit sweetener (I use this brand)
  • 1 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 ½ teaspoons glucomannan powder or xanthan gum
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
Instructions
  1. Cutting against the grain, slice steak into thin strips, then into 1 to 2 inch pieces. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the red pepper flakes, fish sauce, minced garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, and monk fruit sweetener. To a large mixing bowl, add sliced steak and, using tongs, rotate steak strips until all meat is coated in marinade. Cover the bowl and transfer to the refrigerator to marinate for 30 minutes.
  3. Once the steak has finished marinating, heat the avocado oil in a large pan over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the steak, marinade, and grated ginger to the pan. Cook the steak until browned, flipping as needed. Turn off the heat and remove the pan from the stove.
  4. Using a spoon, spoon out ½ cup of the sauce from the pan and transfer to a mixing bowl. Sprinkle the glucomannan powder on top of the sauce and whisk ingredients together until the sauce thickens. Pour the thickened sauce back into pan. Serve beef in bowls on its own or atop cauliflower rice and garnish with sliced green onions.
Notes

Storage: Store beef in an airtight container in the refrigerator and consume within 2-3 days. Alternatively, for freezing, store beef in an airtight container in the freezer and consume within 2 months. To re-heat, thaw beef in the refrigerator and, once thawed, heat in a pan over medium heat until warmed throughout.

These Reuben Stuffed Mushrooms have all the flavors of your favorite classic diner sandwich, but in the form of a delicious stuffed mushroom.

Craving a keto Reuben sandwich?

If you’ve been longing for a keto-friendly Reuben sandwich recipe, this is it. You won’t even miss the bun! Tangy sauerkraut and corned beef coated in a creamy and flavorful homemade low carb Russian dressing, tucked into perfectly cooked mushrooms and topped with melty Swiss cheese. The keto Russian dressing gets its kick from spicy brown mustard and Worcestershire sauce. All the classic Reuben flavors come together perfectly in these low carb stuffed mushrooms.

Are mushrooms keto?

Mushrooms are a great addition to a keto diet. One cup of portobello mushrooms has 5.9g total carbs, 3.2g net. Add some protein from the corned beef and fat from Russian dressing and Swiss cheese, and you’ve got the perfect balance of carbs, protein, and fat, in these delicious keto appetizers. Beyond the macros, portobello mushrooms are loaded with fiber, (which is why they’re so low in net carbs). Mushrooms are a really great source of vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes, like selenium, copper, and potassium. That’s why eating mushrooms can help if you’re struggling with keto flu.

Repurposing leftover low carb stuffed mushrooms:

I like to make a double batch of these Reuben Stuffed Mushrooms and have some for breakfast with a fried egg the next day. They reheat well, so you can make a bunch at once — great for meal prep and a party with your keto friends. While you could stuff mushrooms with any combination of meat and cheese, the real key is the homemade keto Russian dressing. It brings all the flavors together for a new take on a classic favorite. You can use coleslaw mix, toss with Russian dressing, and add chopped corned beef, sauerkraut, and Swiss cheese for a keto Reuben slaw.

KETO HAPPY HOUR: 50 Low Carb Craft Cocktails to Quench Your Thirst. Check out my other books – HERE
So it’s Friday night and you’re feeling alright. You’re ready to dance the night away with a cocktail in your hand. OR, if you are more like me, you want to have a cocktail at home with friends. But how do you know what to drink? What is the best alcohol for a low carb diet. What alcohol is lowest in carbs? I am about to break down the carbs in alcohol for you. Check out my Complete Guide to Carbs in Alcohol. You might be asking… Can you have alcohol on a low carb diet? Is alcohol keto? You might be saying to yourself “But wait? I can’t! I’m low carb” You are NOT low carb. You are a person following a low carb lifestyle. Do not be defined by your dietary decisions. Doing so will lead to a life of restriction and feeling restricted often causes us to stray from our intended path. Besides, who wants to pass up low carb gummy worms. Especially when they are boozy low carb gummy worms.

I know that it can be tricky to navigate alcohol on a low carb diet, so I’m taking all the guess work out of it for you. I’ll show you how to indulge, while still sticking to your healthy living, ketogenic lifestyle. Think you can no longer have those delicious Moscow Mules at happy hour with your friends, or that you have to skip those margaritas on Taco Tuesday? Think again! I’m putting your favorite drinks back on the menu, the low carb menu, that is.

Whether you are craving a cocktail after a long day of work, or looking to do some healthy entertaining, this book has you covered. From mixers, to drinks and even some pub grub. It’s all in there!
