Keto Taco Mini-Bowls with Avocado Salsa

Keto Taco Mini-Bowls with Avocado Salsa

Looking for a little Mexican style meal. Try theseKeto Taco Mini-Bowls with Avocado Salsa. My wife does not eat that much cheese so she will eat around the shell or I will just leave the cheese “shell” out of a couple of ramekins. I know, that seems like it would no longer be a Keto Taco Mini-Bowls with Avocado Salsa but she is not keto so she will enjoy a tortilla or two and dish the mixture directly into the tortilla, fold it and have her taco Mexican style.

As a “Bonus”  those of us that are following a ketogenic diet can always use the ingredients to make ourselves lettuce roll-ups for lunch or a light dinner. (more…)

Keto Bacon Cheddar Breakfast Casserole

Keto Bacon Cheddar Breakfast Casserole

This is a great Keto Bacon Cheddar Breakfast Casserole family breakfast or if you have guests staying over as is often the case here in Puerto Vallarta. Actually, it is not bad for a nice light dinner if you want to make a one dish meal. Don’t tell anyone but we snuck in some broccoli without saying anything in the title. I actually like broccoli and it is a big part of most peoples food bank if they are following a ketogenic lifestyle. Broccoli is super healthy for you if you can buy it fresh, like from a farmer that grew it. Click To Tweet That is one of the reasons I am always shopping at farmers markets. Cooking with whatever produce is in season is a great choice but does take a little planning. If you can not buy real fresh then flash frozen is the next best option.The stuff that is sitting in the bins at your local supermarket was probably harvested a few weeks ago and has lost any nutritional value it had. If you can find a little spot where you can grow your own you will be surprised at how great the flavor of fresh picked produce is over store bought.

Keto Mozzarella Chicken Thighs

Keto Mozzarella Chicken Thighs

Free Range chicken is a staple in our house and these Keto Mozzarella Chicken Thighs are one that we make often. Mainly because there is much more flavor in chicken thighs that is our choice but it can be made with chicken breasts as well. Of course, if you are following a Paleo lifestyle, just leave off the mozzarella cheese and you will till have a great tasting meal. Keto and Paleo are so much alike that it is pretty easy to adjust many recipes just by adding or subtracting one or two items.

Is Daily Functional Fitness For You

Is Daily Functional Fitness For You

This is an update of an article I shared about 2 years ago. At that time I have lost a little over 50 pounds. Now it is a little over 100 pounds so I thought I would update this article and share it with those that might have missed it the first time around.

Long ago I decided that daily Functional Fitness was going to be the way for me to go if I was to exercise and stay in any kind of shape at all. I adjusted to a Ketogenic lifestyle that includes a lot more whole foods and I use functional fitness as my exercise program. As a side effect and without effort on my part other than the above, I have dropped a tad over 100 pounds that needed to go.

When I had my annual physical the doctor discovered through the blood work that I had a health issue that needed to be addressed. The pounds had to go in the fastest possible time without putting a strain on my health in general. That made it extra easy to make the changes. I have more pounds to drop (the curse of being a chef) and I plan to share with you what I do so perhaps if you want to drop a few pounds or just want to add a little Daily Functional fitness to your life, you will join me.
