Back to Basics: Favorite Recipes, Part III

Getting your body into ketosis is easy.  You don’t need any special diet supplements or drinks or anything crazy.  You don’t need to pay for classes to learn about keto.  What you need is access to free resources and food.  It’s that simple.  The resources help you learn more about the specifics of what to eat and when.  The food is what you need to get your body into a healthy, fat burning machine.

There are tons of Keto recipes online, in cookbooks and shared among friends.  And yet, it is still so hard to find a great recipe that actually tastes good!  It shouldn’t be that hard, but it is.  If I’ve learned anything about cooking Keto over the past year, it’s that difficult recipes are rarely worth the effort.  Complicated recipes are time consuming, require a lot of (sometimes) usual ingredients, are difficult to follow properly…and, after all of this, the taste doesn’t reflect the efforts and resources.

If you’re looking for a few great recipes, you’ve come to the right place!  Here are a few recipes that my family and I all love, are easy to make, are keto-friendly to help you stay with your macros, and above all, taste great!

FYI: This blog got really long.  So I’m splitting it up by Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner (here), and Snacks & Desserts.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but I think it’ll be worth it because I have some great recipes and information which include eating out!

Dinner:

Bacon-wrapped Pork Chops w/ Riced Cauliflower

My brother, who is a culinary genius, taught me how to make this amazing bacon-wrapped pork shop recipe.  It tastes so good and is actually pretty simple.  I like to pair it with all kinds of veggies or salad, but I’ll focus on riced cauliflower for now.  FYI, the pork chops were eaten way before Keto and it just happens that they fit the lifestyle perfectly 😉

Directions for Pork Chops:

Preheat oven at 400 degrees and put butter in a skillet to allow it to melt while preparing the pork chops.  Stretch the bacon and wrap a piece of bacon around the side of each pork shop, securing with a toothpick or two.  Season one side of the pork chop with Steak Seasoning and the other lightly with dried, crushed rosemary.  Place in the skillet to sear both sides (it usually takes about 5 minutes or so on each side) and then put in the oven to cook until it reaches whatever temperature pork should be to be safe.  I kind of eyeball it but it’s better to use the temperature gauge so you don’t accidentally overcook it.  When it reaches the proper temperature, remove from the oven and let rest for 5-10 minutes before plating and serving.

Ingredients for Pork Chops:

  • Thick cut, boneless pork chops cut in half to make them slightly thinner
  • Bacon, at least 1 per pork chop
  • Toothpicks 1-2 per pork chop to secure the bacon
  • 2-3 tbpn butter
  • Dried rosemarry
  • Montreal Steak Seasoning

Directions for Riced Cauliflower:

I recently discovered riced cauliflower.  Honestly, I’ve known about it but I just didn’t know what to do with it or how to make it.  My taught me and it’s so delicious and easy.

Put as much cauliflower as you’d like to make into a microwavable bowl.  (Sorry, I haven’t figured out how to make it without the microwave yet.)  Microwave until warm.  I generally start with it as it’s beginning to defrost, so it’s about 5-7 minutes on High, stopping every few minutes to stir and check progress.  

Once the cauliflower is warm, add in the remainder of the ingredients.  I believe this to be a flexible and forgiving recipe, so feel free to have fun and customize your rice.  Nuke it again until it’s all nice and hot, mix it together and serve.  Yes, it’s that easy.

Ingredients for Riced Cauliflower:

  • Riced, frozen cauliflower (I get a huge bag from Costco and use about 1/2 for 4 adults and leftovers)
  • Pink Himalayan sea salt
  • Freshly cracked pepper
  • Dried parsley
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese (I have a baggy from Trader Joe’s that works out really well)
  • Butter

Note: This recipe is very flexible and I’ve been eyeballing the ingredients.  I think I used 1/2 huge bag of riced cauliflower, 1 tbsp dried parsley, a bunch of salt and pepper, 1/4-1/2 cup of cheese and maybe 4 tbsp butter.  Taste your creation and make some adjustments as needed.

Fathead Pizza

After we first started Keto, my husband was dying for pizza.  The man loves pizza.  And, to be honest, I really like pizza too.  It was a little bit into Keto before I discovered Fathead Pizza which is now a family favorite for Keto and non-Keto eaters alike.

The dough is simple and can handle regular pizza ingredients like sauce, cheese and a few toppings.  I discovered a few things to share with you: #1-Keep the dough thicker as it doesn’t hold together well when it’s too thin and may not satisfy your pizza needs, #2-I like mixing herbs and spices into the dough because it’s rather plain.  Our favorite is adding Everything But The Bagel Seasoning from Trader Joe’s or Italian seasoning.

Directions:

Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Put shredded mozzarella, cream cheese and almond flour into a microwavable bowl (I generally use my 4-cup liquid measuring cup from Pyrex)  and give it a mix.  If you’re adding extra seasoning to your dough, this is the time to add it in.  Nothing serious will happen here, you’re just trying to get a little of everything around so it makes it easier later in the process.  Microwave for 1 minute.  Stir and check for meltiness.  You’ll want to microwave it again for 1 minute, stir and check it.  After that, you’ll want to nuke it 30 seconds at a time.

When the cheese is all melted and stirred (it’s not going to be liquid cheese, so don’t cook it that far), you’ll want to mix in an egg and stir, fold, etc. until everything is incorporated.  Trust me, it will get incorporated into a dough.  I don’t know how it all works, but it does.

Once combined, transfer dough to a large sheet of parchment paper and cover with another large sheet of parchment paper.  Use your hands or anything you’d like to smooth out the dough to the desired thickness and size.  It’s usually really hot, so if you’re using your hands like I do, you may want to have a kitchen towel on top of the top parchment paper so you don’t cook your hands too.  Take everything off the top of the dough and transfer your dough with the bottom parchment to your cookie sheet/baking pan.  Poke holes with a fork all over the dough so you don’t get big bubbles.

Put the dough in the oven for 10 minutes.  It should be getting brown and delicious.  At this point, remove the dough, carefully flip this over and bake for another 5-10 minutes.  During this time you’ll want to be cleaning up the kitchen mess and getting pizza ingredients ready to go.

When the pizza dough is done remove it from the oven and place on either your stove or a heat safe counter…no need to burn your counters and wreck them in the name of good food!  Add a little low-carb pasta, pizza, or marinara sauce, top with more mozzarella cheese and other low-carb toppings.  Put the pizza back in the oven on the top rack for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to brown (that’s my favorite way pizza cheese should be enjoyed).

Remove the pizza from the oven.  It’s really hot and looks like pizza.  Cut into pieces and enjoy.  It does well as leftovers, if there are leftovers!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 egg

Optional ingredients:

  • 3-4 tbsp sauce of choice…I use Victoria’s Marinara from Costco
  • 2 tsp Everything But The Bagel seasoning from Trader Joe’s
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper
  • High quality pepperoni
  • Mushroom slices
  • 1-2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Note: This recipe is very forgiving.  There are many postings and recipes online for Fathead dough.  Some say to include baking soda or powder but I’ve found that it isn’t totally necessary.  Enjoy this pizza!!!

Claim Jumper

I love eating out.  And I love a good steak!  Claim Jumper is a restaurant that has really good American Steakhouse food that is carby and delicious.  Did you think I would give up good food just to get healthy?  Heck no.  I just request changes to my order and I rarely have any issues.  In regards to budget, it doesn’t break the bank because one meal is split between 2 adults, so it’s pretty good, especially for eating out and a nice restaurant.  I guess you should know that I’m not a fancy-pants kind of lady.  So, Claim Jumper is about as nice a restaurant as I want to go.

We order a medium-rare porterhouse steak with lightly steamed vegetables (what they have, but it’s usually zucchini and squash), an extra order of the veggies and a salad with ranch dressing.  To be honest, it doesn’t give us much salad each, but it’s no big deal because we have plenty of veggies and steak coming right after.

This meal is so filling and delicious, it’ll make you feel like a King (or a Queen).    Could you make this at home?  Yes.  I have.  But if you’re the one person in your home that cooks, it’s nice to go out and not have to do the cooking and cleaning for the evening.  What a treat!

If you need a date-night idea, this is a good place to go eat.  If you don’t like steak, you’re a monster.  JK!  Claim Jumper actually has some really great options that are keto-friendly with a few modifications.  Ask questions, trade out some foods and watch the sauces…and you’ll be golden!

Note: About date-night.  You might not want to go to the movies after dinner because that buttery popcorn smell is so crazy enticing!  However, it’ll be tolerable because you just ate so well and won’t actually be hungry.

FYI: This blog got really long.  So I’m splitting it up by Breakfast, Lunch (here), Dinner, and Snacks & Desserts.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but I think it’ll be worth it because I have some great recipes and information which include eating out!

Lunch:

Leftover Salad

I’m a fan of using what I have as leftovers to make new meals.  I don’t like to waste, but I don’t always like to eat the same meal day after day.  So, the idea is to take leftovers and turn them into something else that’s edible.

For dinners I like to make meat and vegetables which leave me with many leftovers, especially meat.  Salads are forgiving and I have yet to find a meat that doesn’t work in the salad the next day.

Directions:

Put lettuce of choice on  a plate or in a big bowl (I love mixed greens, but any will do).  Then add all ingredients and top with some dressing and something crunchy.  You don’t have to have dressing or something crunchy, but that’s how I like it.  That’s it.  So simple.

Ingredient Suggestions to Make 1 Big Leftover Salad:

  • Lettuce or Mixed greens (3+ cups give or take)
  • 1-2 tbsp shredded cheese of choice
  • 1 tbsp salted, roasted seeds (like pumpkin or sunflower
  • 1 tsp hemp hearts
  • 1/2 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 3-4 berries (optional)
  • 4-5 Whisps (optional, but they add more crunch)
  • 1 tbsp homemade bacon bits (optional)
  • Some leftover meat…I’ve tried shredded pork, chicken and beef, and strips of steak
  • 0-2 tbsp low carb dressing ( I like the Chunky Blue Cheese yogurt dressing from Bolthouse Farms and ACV dressing from Bragg’s) 

This Leftover Salad is easy to make, doesn’t take much time and helps you from wasting valuable food.  It tastes great and is healthy.  No one will ever know in your lunch room that your gourmet salad is leftovers put together that morning!

This filling salad is something I eat several times a week.  I also send my husband to work with this meal and he enjoys it with coworkers wondering how this is a “diet” salad with cheese and meat and dressing and crunchy bits.  LOL

Note: Practically everything in this salad is optional.  It’s a very flexible meal and you can add what you have in the house, including cucumbers, celery, a tiny bit of carrots (but they’re high carb, so be careful), pieces of high fat nuts, and even sugar free bbq sauce and ranch to make a bbq salad like they serve at Lucille’s BBQ restaurant.  It’s an easy way to get your veggies in.  I cannot recommend this more.

Chicken Wings (and Bacon) w/ Ranch

There’s a local restaurant called Bravo Burger that has the most delicious chicken wings (sans sauce…too spicy), bacon and ranch dip ever.  To be honest, I think the chicken is keto-friendly, the bacon is marginal because I’m pretty sure it’s cured in sugar, and the amazing ranch has got to have sugar in it because it is way too good. 

Not only is this meal not totally keto-friendly, but it’s somewhat expensive.  We get 1 order of chicken wings (8), 2 orders of bacon (8) and an extra ranch (2) to split between my husband and I.  I discovered dipping that thick, crispy bacon in the ranch…WHOA!  

This has inspired me to create this meal at home for much less.  It really doesn’t even require that much effort either.  Plus, it’s keto-friendly and we can eat way more…and possibly have leftovers for another day.

Directions:

Put all chicken wings into a big bowl and add seasonings to your liking.  Mix with hands or a large, strong spoon to get an even coating on all chicken pieces.  This can be done 30 minutes ahead or longer.  Even allowing an overnight marinade is great!  Bake bacon on a sheet pan at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until crispy.  Add as many wings to the basket of your preheated air fryer as possible.  You’ll want to cook this for 10 minutes, carefully remove the basket to flip wings around and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until done.

While the bacon and wings are cooking make your own homemade dipping sauce.  I like ranch but blue cheese, another low carb sauce or even plain will work.  I prefer to mix my ranch mix, salt and pepper in with sour cream, then refrigerate as long as possible (at least 20 minutes).

When the bacon is done, take it from the oven and let sit aside on a paper towel to remove some of the bacon grease.  I have zero problem eating bacon grease, but I hate when it drips on me when I’m eating.  Annoying!  Just let it drain off a little and you’ll be good to go.  When the chicken wings are done, remove them from the air fryer and put in a big bowl.  You’ll want to salt them one last time.  Remember, we need extra salt in our keto diets because our body do not retain salt like they once did.  Salt is vital to our survival…so don’t be afraid to salt your food.

Put some wings, bacon and cold ranch on your plate and enjoy!  This also goes well with vegetables, like cucumbers, mini peppers and even raw broccoli.

Ingredients:

  • Chicken wings
  • Bacon
  • Pink Himalayan sea salt (some for the marinade, some for the chicken when it’s done cooking)
  • Cracked pepper
  • Garlic and onion powder (optional, but go light because it’s higher in carbs than you’d think)
  • Smoked paprika
  • Cayenne powder or chili powder (optional but adds light heat…or high heat if you’d like)

Note: This recipe for the chicken wings is very forgiving and can take just about any spice you feel like.  I’ve also tried just salt and pepper, and an Italian seasoning version with thyme and rosemary.  In addition to plain bacon, you have to try adding freshly cracked pepper and Herbs de Provence…it is delicious!

Which Wich Sandwich Bowl

My husband has really gotten into this Keto life.  He’s really become quite mindful of what he’s eating and has a great idea about what’s keto-friendly and what he should avoid.  One day he tells me about this new lunch he loves at his old favorite sandwich shop, Which Wich.

This is a pretty good fast food restaurant and it usually isn’t too expensive, plus you can customize your order.  But, did you know that you turn any sandwich into a salad there?  And this is when I was introduced to the Wicked Sandwich Salad with spinach, mushrooms, pickles, cucumbers, double meat and cheese, bacon, avocado, olives and either ranch or mayonnaise.  It’s about $17 each but it’s 2 really good sized meals for me and there’s so much meat, cheese, and other goodies that you really don’t feel like you’re eating a salad.  It’s delicious and I recommend giving it a serious go.

Another great thing about Which Wich is that you can order from a phone app and pick it up at a scheduled time.  That means you don’t have to wait in line to order or wait for them to make it.

Saves time.  Tastes good.  Is filling.  Is a decent price when eaten as two good sized meals.  Check it out the next time you’re looking for a good meal and there is a Which Wich near you.

I have yet to try other sandwich salads here because when I find what I love I don’t really like trying new things unless I frequent the establishment often, which I don’t.  I think I probably go once a month.

What a treat!

When it doesn’t go according to plan

I’ve been talking about meal planning and prepping for weeks now.  But it doesn’t always go according to plan.  The good news is, a few bumps in the road don’t wreck everything!

You might know by now that I’m tapering off my anxiety medication.  It’s causing some problems, but I’m going slow and have the full support of my doctor.  I’m currently on half dose and surviving.  I feel like I have a sinus infection, the flu, body temperature issues and have weird body aches.  It’s normal and it helps me to feel better that what I’m feeling is just my body detoxing from the medication.  I know this will all pass, but I’m dropping the ball on the meal planning because I don’t always feel good enough to prep and cook the meals I planned.

I’m here to tell you that it’s okay if you mess up!  You might end up throwing some food away, eating out or modifying your meal plan, but it’s survivable and forgivable.  Tonight I planned to cook steaks and enjoy it with steamed veggies.  It sounds so nice to eat, but I am feeling my worst in the afternoons and evenings lately.  So instead, I am using the chicken I deboned yesterday to make this Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole today.  I already have all of the ingredients, all I have to do is put it together before I feel crummy…then put it in the oven to cook before dinner.  I can quickly microwave steam some broccoli and cauliflower to go with it.  Now everyone is happy because I feel like I accomplished something, we all get to eat dinner, and it doesn’t become a burden to ask my husband to bring home dinner on his way back from work.

I’m hoping this casserole will leave us with enough for lunch tomorrow because then we don’t have to do anything extra like eat out or cook another meal (which isn’t going to happen).  Unfortunately, I’ve made this before and there wasn’t anything left at all!  It’s a good sign that the meal was delicious, but not great for having leftovers.  What a problem to have!

Whatever your reason for not following the meal plan and preparations for yourself (and family), it’s going to be okay.  You can put the steaks in the freezer for another day.  You can cook two meals in one day so you have future meals ready.  You can eat out.  Don’t punish yourself.  Do your best.  Remember, any changes are improvements in the right direction.

Have a wonderful day!

PS-I know you’re wondering what that image has anything to do with this blog.  Get back on that horse when you’ve fallen off.  It’ll be okay.  You can still achieve greatness and success!

Plumeria Cafe by STACKS

This morning we enjoyed a unique and inviting experience at Plumeria Cafe by STACKS.

Plumeria Cafe by STACKS
23811 Aliso Creek Road, Suite 122
Laguna Niguel, CA 92677
(949) 900-6829
Hours: 7:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I wasn’t sure what to expect about Plumeria Cafe by STACKS.  Before 2 days ago I hadn’t ever heard of it.  We discovered this Hawaiian themed breakfast/brunch/lunch gem based on a recommendation of a local breakfast lover (if this was you, please send me a notification because I want to give you credit and can’t find the post).

While it looks unassuming from the parking lot, once you walk through the glass double doors and into this indoor business center you will immediately see the “real” front of Plumeria Cafe by STACKS.  It’s quaint, inviting and easy-going.  I can see they must often get huge crowds based on the line arrangements and extra menus outside the entry.  You walk in to order and pay immediately at the cash register, then choose your seating which offers bar stools and tall tables, regular tables and chairs, couches and tables with chairs, or even outdoor patio dining.

After ordering and choosing a table, you can go back to the front to pick out a variety of sweeteners, syrups, and other condiments.  They have “sugar-free” items but upon looking closely they aren’t keto-friendly and are packed with dextrose and maltodextrin, so I would suggest bringing your own packets of sweetener if you really want it with your meal.

The coffee was delicious.  I’m not certain, but if I had to guess I would think it was organic.  They gladly got me butter and whole milk for my coffee and offer free refills.

The food was not as awesome as I was expecting, but it tasted good.  The Plumeria Omlette tasted much better than it looked, except for the artichokes (not a favorite of mine), but does include egg whites, garlic shrimp and some kind of sauce.  The omlette was falling apart and the sauce had broken, but all in all, it tasted pretty darn good.  The Break of Dawn Scramble was so good!  I would highly recommend the Break of Dawn Scramble for anyone who is too picky to try anything with a Hawaiian flare.

I loved that they allowed us to easily exchange potatoes and bread for tomatoes and spinach.  Unfortunately, there really wasn’t much to either.  I would say, get more tomatoes and add salt yourself…that spinach was rough and seemed to be lightly steamed and not seasoned at all.

I realize this is a mixed review.  Let me use a rating system to help:

  • Location: 3 out of 5
  • Environment: 4.5 out of 5
  • Food: 3.5 out of 5
  • Coffee: 5 out of 5

I would recommend checking this out.  It might not look pretty, but there are some great flavors in what they did season.

Le Peep

I just ate the best Keto Breakfast I have had in a long time!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A new breakfast & lunch restaurant opened near my home and I’ve been reading about it in my local Facebook groups.  Le Peep was everything everyone said and so much more!

The restaurant is nice, clean and modern with a warm, welcoming feel.  I do believe my husband & I have found our new Breakfast Date spot.  Wahoo!!  Lots of easy parking close to the restaurant.

We were greeted by a waitress that was so nice.  She was professional, helpful, knowledgeable, kind and I just liked her…honestly, I would love to ask to sit down and enjoy some coffee with us next time.

They’ve not been open long, yet it seems they have thought of everything.  There is space for outdoor seating with heaters, a coffee bar with many kinds of coffee drinks (I just drink the regular stuff so I didn’t catch all of what they can make), freshly made, high-quality food for a reasonable price (We spent about $25 for two of us including extras and coffees.)

There are many Keto options on the menu with slight modifications and Le Peep is working on adding a gluten-free menu soon.  I asked for weird items and they took it in stride and a smile…I didn’t get any weird looks when I asked for butter for my coffee!

The best part about Le Peep is definitely the food.  Holy cow!  We ordered a Sir Benedict Omelet, exchanging the potatoes and bread for broccoli and tomato, then adding avocado.  Splitting this in half was the perfect for both my husband and I.  Actually, I was getting full and literally had to choose between the magic coffee I made with their coffee or the last big bite of my omelet.  I chose the coffee and my husband made the sacrifice to eat the rest of my breakfast for me =)  He’s too good to me!

I’m not usually a fussy or picky person.  But when it comes to coffee I do have preferences.  The best coffee I’ve ever had is the organic coffee at home.  Well, I think I found it’s match at Le Peep and I’m excited to say that if I want coffee with my breakfast while eating out, I don’t have to choose to forgo the coffee or bring my own.  The waitress must have known how delicious this coffee is because she left the carafe of freshly brewed coffee at our table.  Good move because I had two cups and my husband had two cups over ice.

All around, Le Peep is fantastic.  I was easily able to made modifications and requests without feeling guilty or causing any trouble to the waitress or kitchen.  The environment is perfect.  The food is amazing.  Did I already say that?  The price wasn’t bad, especially if you compare it to other places like Corky’s Kitchen or Denny’s.

I believe we have found a new breakfast spot to enjoy!  I would love Le Peep if I weren’t doing Keto, but I truly appreciate this restaurant as someone who follows a Keto lifestyle.

If you’re ever in the area, check out Le Peep in Laguna Hills.  They’re located in the shopping center at La Paz and Moulton.  You will not be disappointed.

Note:

I accidentally discovered broccoli covered in hollandaise sauce.  Whoa.  Try it.

I tried to make a video with my cell phone and it didn’t record the audio.  I’ll have to work on the video again later.

Restaurant Information:

Le Peep’s

They have menus online with pictures and apparently several locations.  We went to the new Le Peep in Laguna Hills, CA.  Wherever you are, if you find a Le Peep, go in!

Have you been to Le Peep?  What do you think about it and what did you try?
