Keto Happy Herb Mustard Sirloin Steak

Keto Happy Herb Mustard Sirloin Steak

This Keto Happy Herb Mustard Sirloin Steak is a nice treat anytime and I make it when we are having guests over for a late lunch/early dinner. It does not require a lot of fuss which I like when I am visiting with friends. Just a few simple ingredients and less than 30 minutes are all it takes to whip up a flavor-packed main course everyone will love!

During the hot days of Summer a simple salad is about the only other item I would add to round out the food portion of the meal.

Note: The actual cooking time for this recipe will vary depending on the thickness of the meat, the starting internal temperature, and the desired level of doneness. (more…)

Keto Garlic Mashed Turnips

Keto Garlic Mashed Turnips

Before you say no to Keto Garlic Mashed Turnips give them a try, You might be asking yourself what have I been missing  all these years. It seems like Cauliflower is getting all the good press on the keto diet but much awaits those with the true adventurers spirit in the kitchen

You won’t miss mashed potatoes after getting a taste of their low-carb cousin, garlic mashed turnips. Rich with cream and butter, you’d better serve extra. Because the non-keto eaters of the family are going to be fighting for the last helping!

The first time I tasted Garlic Mashed Turnips was at my grandmothers house. She had a rule that you could eat as much as you want but what you put on your plate you had to finish. I was 8 years old and I thought that they were mashed potatoes so I took a nice large serving. I took one bite and knew my grandmother was trying to kill me. Boy was that a hard meal to finish. Somewhere along the line I learned to love turnips, mashed, in soups and stews or sliced, cooked in butter and served with a dash of salt  as side dish. It they are very young slice them raw on a salad just as you would a radish.

My Diary

Daily Functional Fitness

Daily Functional Fitness

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. This past year I have 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 51 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.
