This is a recipe that I will be using over the holidays. Keto Fully-Loaded Cauliflower Au Gratin is one of those recipes that goes well with any protein entree that you are serving.
I like to switch this with Cauliflower mashed once in a while just for a nice change of pace. It is another example of how well we eat when following a ketogenic lifestyle. It is just a matter of adjusting some of the old food item recipes for new food recipes. And I promise. everyone will enjoy keto fully-loaded cauliflower au gratin when they try it. (more…)
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. […]
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.

I save the Master Keto Burgers for those times when I want to spend a little time enjoying a casual meal with my wife and friends. I often choose to serve a keto friendly meal without going into any detail about it being keto. This requires that the eye appeal of the foods is as important or more important than the actual selection. These Master keto burgers are one of my favorite meals for those times. Served with fresh cold brewed coffee over ice, Lemon and mineral water or iced tea, it is a great meal for a summer afternoon and nobody will every miss the French fries most people serve with burgers.
My wife is not following the ketogenic lifestyle but is a great supporter of my choice to do so. Often we will eat completely different meals, she makes her choice and I make mine. However, we both eat a lot of avocados and it seems everyone likes a hamburger so the master keto burgers work for both of us.
Bacon and Cauliflower scrambled eggs is a nice, fast breakfast and another way to enjoy the many benefits of cauliflower. You can cook the cauliflower fresh or if you happen to have a little left over from yesterday it works here just as well. For […]
