Starting my ketogenic day

Starting my ketogenic day

I thought I would take a moment and just “go personal” and talk a little about starting my ketogenic day. Today happens to be a Saturday which for some is the weekend but for those of us that are semi-retired it is just a Day. […]

Broccoli Bacon Salad with Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

Broccoli Bacon Salad with Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

I do not believe that Broccoli gets the respect other vegetables do. That is about to change. This salad will make a believer of people that only eat a small piece from the buffet table during the office party and only because there in not much else “keto” available.  Broccoli Bacon Salad with Toasted Pumpkin Seeds could very well become a new favorite so …try it, you may just love it.

 This lightly dressed, chilled broccoli salad is great for picnics, potlucks,(we still have potlucks don’t we?) and other casual get-togethers. The mayonnaise-free dressing adds a boost of bright flavor thanks to the fresh lemon juice and zest, while the crisp-tender broccoli and pumpkin seeds add a satisfying crunch. We’ll let the bacon speak for itself.

I make this salad as a complete mid-day lite lunch as it is very filling. (more…)

Keto Pickled Jalapeno Peppers & Red Onion

Keto Pickled Jalapeno Peppers & Red Onion

With summer in full swing and cook outs almost every weekend This Pickled Jalapeno Peppers & Red Onion condiment will come in very handy for many of the entrees and sandwich wraps you will be serving. It allows everyone to add a little spice according to their taste.

These quick-pickled jalapeno peppers and onions are delicious on top of your favorite Mexican or Tex Mex dishes. They can also be enjoyed on their own, or in wraps, salads, or anywhere you want a little extra spice. For a nice twist, try the pickling liquid in place of plain vinegar in homemade vinaigrettes and marinades.

Amazing Keto Coffee

Amazing Keto Coffee

I have chosen Keto Coffee as the second Breakfast because for coffee drinkers this is the answer to no hunger pains during the day. I use this recipe every morning to kick the energy to a high level while adding some much needed GOOD FAT to the keto plan that I am living. The keto plan is a lifestyle that will help get you healthy while helping you loose those unwanted pounds pretty fast.

This is a quick and easy way to increase your fat intake each day without having to worry too much about it.

For keto coffee, you are using the same premise as Bulletproof Coffee, but you don’t have to be as strict with where the coffee beans are sourced or the brand of fat added. I will admit that I source my coffee and it is mold free and roasted fresh within hours before I pick it up from my roaster. You can find some very good coffees in most markets and if you are near a roaster I recommend you purchase your coffee as fresh roasted as possible. (more…)

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.
