Keto Cauliflower Fried Rice

Keto Cauliflower Fried Rice

Today I am sharing one of my favorite side dishes, Keto Cauliflower Fried Rice. Actually this can very easily be turned into a main entree by adding a little cooked shrimp, boneless chicken strips or even some left over beef such as a little pot roast. For Now we will be serving it this way because one of our son’s and his lady are visiting us here in Mexico and she does not eat any animal foods including eggs and butter. They will be here for 10 days so the food choices will be interesting but very enjoyable. Breakfast might be a challenge because I do like our eggs. Let’s face it, with abot 100 chickens they are always available. Now we have also added ducks and turkeys to the farm but it is to early to tell if there will be a market for their eggs. Anyway, back to the cauliflower:

Attacking The Keto Diet

Attacking The Keto Diet

This past week there have been three articles, aka reviews that were Attacking The Keto Diet claiming that it is not a healthy diet and in fact might be harmful. One thing I noticed is that they attack the keto diet as a whole and did not go into the 4 different types of keto diet. There are a lot of reasons below the surface as to why they might attack it, and I think most of us know what they are.

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.
