59Diet and Low Carb Meals and Snacks - Page 3 Empty Low Carb Sweet and Sour Chicken on Sun Aug 24, 2014 7:02 pm


5-6 Small Boneless Chicken Breasts
2 Large Eggs, Beaten
1 Cup Crushed Pork Rinds
1/2 Cup Almond Flour
1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
1 tsp. Kosher Salt
1 tsp. Freshly Ground Black Pepper

1/2 Cup Erythritol
1/2 Cup Rice Vinegar
4 Tbsp. Reduced Sugar Ketchup
1 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
1 tsp. Garlic Powder

1. Cube chicken into ~1″ chunks.

2. In a food processor, combine pork rinds, parmesan cheese, and almond flour. Grind until a meal-like substance is formed. Then, coat the chicken in the pork rind mixture and set on a plate.

3. Heat the oils in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the chicken in (in small batches) and cook.

4. In the meantime, combine all the sauce ingredients into a saucepan and whisk while it boils down.

5. Once the chicken is cooked, remove from the pan and continue cooking the rest of your batches.

6. In a bowl, pour the sauce over the chicken and mix together to coat


1. Preheat your oven to 325F.

2. Get your chicken breasts ready. If they are thick, pound them thin. You’re looking for about 1/2 – 3/4 inch thickness. I started with 6 and had to separate one of the breasts into 2 pieces. Slice the chicken breasts into cubes. Try to be as uniform as possible, but it doesn’t matter too much.

3. Fill up a Ziploc bag about half way with pork rinds. Add your salt and pepper. I add about 1 tsp. of each.

4. Crush them with a rolling pin well (you want a crumbly texture with only a few larger pieces, your pork rinds should be more crushed than mine). Add your almond flour and parmesan cheese and shake well. Make sure you’re using a fine almond flour. Bob’s Red Mill’s won’t give the texture needed for this, as it’s grainy. I use Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour, which is fantastic for baking treats as well – giving a realistic flavor and texture closer to all purpose flour.

5. Put your pork rinds into 1 bowl, and your 2 eggs into another bowl. Beat your eggs until they’re thoroughly scrambled.

6. In a large pan, heat 1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil and 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil on high heat.

7. Dip your chicken breast into the egg and then into the pork rinds and almond flour mixture. Add them to the pan to fry. Don’t worry if your chicken isn’t completely coated. The sauce will help with that and give a nice balance. You don’t want to fully cook them here, you only want to partially fry them so they have a crispy outside.

8. When they’re finished frying, add them to a baking pan. I had to fry 3 different batches of chicken, so don’t worry if you can’t fit it all into 1 pan. We’ll be cooking these in the oven.

9. Let’s get to work on the sauce. Add 4 Tbsp. reduced sugar ketchup, 1/2 Cup Rice Vinegar, 1/2 Cup Erythritol, 1 Tbsp. Soy Sauce, and 1 tsp. Garlic powder.

10. Mix the sauce well until it becomes thick.

11. Pour the sauce over the chicken, distributing it the best you can.

12. Mix the chicken into the sauce so that every piece is covered.

13. We want to put this in the oven for 60 minutes total, but flip each piece of chicken every 15 minutes. After 15 minutes your chicken should look like this.

14. 30 minutes in, we need to flip the chicken again, the sauce should start to be reducing and the chicken starting to let out its natural juice. You’ll see a divide in the sauce with the chicken juice on the top. Mix it in well.

15. 45 minutes in, you should start to see the sauce start to harden up a bit, coating each piece of chicken well. Flip the chicken one last time and return it to the oven for 15 more minutes.

16. Once the 60 minutes is finished, the sauce should be reduced down into a thicker and more dippable consistency.

17. Serve up and enjoy! I personally don’t mix the chicken at the end of the 60 minutes. Just spoon it straight onto a plate with broccoli or cauliflower fried rice, adding some more sauce on top.

60Diet and Low Carb Meals and Snacks - Page 3 Empty Low Carb Chocolate Blueberry Bites on Tue Aug 26, 2014 6:04 pm


Low Carb Chocolate Blueberry Bites Recipe:
¼ cup of melted extra virgin coconut oil (I like the Nutiva brand)
2 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa
1 tbsp of sweetener of your choice, preferably liquid (Raw Honey, Stevia, I used Xylitol…)
Blueberry Cream
2 tbsp of blueberries (if frozen, let them thaw a little)
2 tbsp of coconut cream (refrigerate your coconut milk, and use the cream that rises to the top)
Dash of lemon juice (optional but it adds a nice kick)
Mix the chocolate ingredients together.
Pour about two thirds into a chocolate mold. *If you don’t have a chocolate mold use a Tupperware container.
Blend the Blueberry Cream together.
Drop a little bit of the cream into each chocolate mold.
Pour the remainder of the chocolate over the chocolate filled goodies.
Devour when the chocolate is frozen. About 15 minutes.

61Diet and Low Carb Meals and Snacks - Page 3 Empty Low Carb Taco Pie on Tue Aug 26, 2014 9:52 pm


Low Carb Taco Pie
adapted from All Day I Dream About Food

1 cup chopped bell pepper (I used a mixture of yellow and green)
1 small onion, chopped
1 lb. ground beef or turkey
3 tbs. homemade taco seasoning (or 1/2 packet)
3/4 cup tomato sauce or water
6 eggs
1 cup coconut milk
3 minced garlic cloves
salt & pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar

Preheat oven to 350 and grease a pie plate.

Saute pepper and onion in a little olive oil until soft. Add ground meat and cook until no longer pink, breaking up with a wooden spoon.

Add tomato sauce and seasoning and reduce heat, simmering until the mixture has thickened up. Stir occasionally.

While meat mixture is reducing, combine eggs, coconut milk, garlic and salt and pepper in a bowl. Stir with a whisk.

Spread meat mixture over the pie plate, then pour egg mixture on top. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until the center is set.


Seared Scallops with Pancetta and Brussels Sprouts


2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
¼ pound pancetta, cut into ½-inch cubes
1 medium shallot, thinly sliced (about 1/4 cup)
1 pound brussels sprouts, roughly chopped or shredded with a mandoline (about 6 cups)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
12 large scallops

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add pancetta and cook, stirring, until most of the fat is rendered and it begins to crisp, about 2 minutes. Add shallots and brussels sprouts, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring, until browned, about six minutes. Stir in vinegar, scraping up any brown bits, then transfer to a plate and set aside. Wipe out skillet with a paper towel.

Pat the scallops dry and season generously with salt and pepper. Return skillet to medium-high heat and add butter. Heat until foaming subsisdes, then add the scallops and allow to cook without moving until golden brown on first side, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip, return the brussels sprouts mixture to warm through and continue cooking until scallops are barely cooked through, about 2 minutes longer. Serve immediately.

64Diet and Low Carb Meals and Snacks - Page 3 Empty Grain Free Taco Shells (Naturally Low Carb) on Wed Aug 27, 2014 1:35 pm


Grain Free Taco Shells (Naturally Low Carb)

12 round slices provolone cheese
Garlic Powder, to taste
Chili Powder, to taste

Preheat oven to 375 F.
Place two slices of cheese flat, but overlap slightly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat with the remaining slices of cheese (I use two cookie sheets, with each "shell" on it's own small piece of parchment paper--just make sure the parchment paper isn't over top of the cheese)
Sprinkle, lightly and evenly with garlic powder and chili powder.
Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.
Immediately pick up each piece of parchment paper and place over the edge of a parchment paper (or foil lined) loaf pan to cool (see image below--this must be done quickly before the cheese hardens. This step is done AFTER the cheese has baked.)

65Diet and Low Carb Meals and Snacks - Page 3 Empty Frozen Strawberry Crumble bars on Wed Aug 27, 2014 8:20 pm


For the cake filling:
2 C. heavy whipping cream
2 egg whites (whipped to soft peaks)
3/4 C. (plus 2 TBS.) low-carb powdered sweetener
4 oz. full fat cream cheese (soft)
2 C. fresh strawberries (chopped)

For the crust and topping:
2 C. almond 'meal'
3 TBS. butter (soft; room temp.)
3 TBS. low-carb powdered sweetener


1. Clean and chop the strawberries into small chunks, then soak in 2 TBS. sweetener for 1 hr. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray grease an 8" X 8" cake pan. Mix together the crust/topping ingredients. Press 1 1/2 C. into bottom of pan and bake for about 12-15 minutes (or until slightly golden brown.) Remove from oven and allow to cool.

2. Whip the cream to soft peaks, then slowly add in the cream cheese and sweetener. Mix well. Blend in the strawberries and mix well. Then fold in the whipped egg whites until well incorporated.

3. Spoon filling onto the crust and smooth evenly. Then sprinkle with the remaining topping. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for 3 hrs. or overnight.

4. Remove from freezer and slice into squares with a sharp knife. (To make it easier to slice, I dip the knife in a glass of warm water and wipe it off--with each cut.)

5. Allow the squares to rest on their serving plates for about an hr. before eating. These are best when they're served semi-frozen (but not fully thawed.) Makes 9 squares.

69Diet and Low Carb Meals and Snacks - Page 3 Empty HEALTHIFIED” CHEETOS on Fri Aug 29, 2014 7:43 pm


3 egg whites
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 cup freshly shredded cheddar cheese (frozen)
Parmesan cheese (if desired)

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Put the frozen cheese in a food processor/blender and chop, until it’s in tiny little pieces.

In a mixing bowl, whip the whites with cream of tartar until VERY stiff peaks form. Sprinkle the chopped cheese, on top of the egg whites. Then, with a rubber spatula, fold the cheese into the egg whites, VERY CAREFULLY, being careful not to disturb the fluffy whites, but thoroughly spread the cheese, throughout.

Carefully place the mixture into a large Ziplock baggie, cut a ½ inch hole in the corner of baggie. Gently squeeze onto cookie sheet in CHEETO-like shapes. I would suggest using a sheet of parchment baking paper, to line your pan, but if you don’t…grease the pan. Lightly sprinkle grated parmesan cheese, on top of each puff.

Bake at 300 degrees, for 20-30 minutes. The longer you can bake them (without them getting too brown), the crispier they will be. For even crispier puffs, turn off the oven, and leave them in the oven for at least 30-minutes. Store in a tightly sealed, air-tight container. 0 carbs

70Diet and Low Carb Meals and Snacks - Page 3 Empty Simple Cabbage Enchiladas on Mon Sep 01, 2014 3:15 pm


Simple Cabbage Enchiladas

1 head of cabbage
Shredded Chicken (I used leftovers from a rotisserie chicken we had)
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
2 (4 ounce) cans of chopped green chiles
Fresh cilantro
Salt & pepper (to taste)
shredded cheese (optional)

For the Sauce:
Add the chicken broth to a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and mix in the sour cream and green chiles, heat thoroughly but do not boil and make sure to stir often. Let simmer for just a bit and the sauce should thicken. Season with salt and pepper.

For the Enchiladas:
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Peel the cabbage leaves – make sure to peel them gently, as you don’t want them to tear. I ran the cabbage under warm water as I was peeling. This helped a ton. Throw the cabbage leaves into the pot of boiling water for a couple of minutes. Remove and set on a paper towel to dry.

Mix the shredded chicken with chopped fresh cilantro and shredded cheese (optional). I also seasoned well with salt & pepper.

Spread the enchilada sauce in the bottom of an 8×8 baking dish. Then take your cabbage leaves and place the chicken mixture inside of them and roll up. Place each cabbage roll in the baking dish. Once done, pour the rest of the enchilada sauce over them. I also topped with shredded cheese.

Bake at 350° for about 20 to 30 minutes.

71Diet and Low Carb Meals and Snacks - Page 3 Empty Cheesy Baked Cauiflower Tots on Fri Sep 05, 2014 1:26 pm


Cheesy Baked Cauiflower Tots
(Makes 24 small Cauliflower Tots;

1/2 large head caulflower, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup reduced-fat sharp cheddar
1/4 cup coarsely grated Parmesan cheese
2 T almond flour
1/2 tsp. Vege-Sal (or a slightly smaller amount of salt)
1/2 tsp. Spike Seasoning (Probably optional, but it does add flavor. You can substitute another all-purpose seasoning blend that tastes good with cauliflower)
fresh-ground black pepper to taste
1 egg

Preheat oven to 400F/200C. Spray a Mini Muffin Pan with non-stick spray.

Cut away the leaves of the cauliflower, but use most of the inner core part. Coarsely chop the cauliflower, place in a micro-wave proof bowl, cover with cling wrap, and microwave 2 minutes on high. (Microwaves can vary so you may need to experiment with the time, but the cauliflower should be just slightly soft.) Quickly take off the cling-wrap and let the steam escape, and if you see any water in the bottom of the bowl, put the cauliflower into a colander and let the water drain off.

Put the steel blade in the food processor, add the cauliflower, and pulse until the cauliflower is finely chopped but still slightly chunky. (Be careful not to over process so you don't end up with cauliflower puree!) If there is any water in the food processor bowl, drain the cauliflower again in the colander.

Put finely chopped cauliflower into a bowl and add the reduced-fat sharp cheddar, coarsely grated Parmesan, almond flour, Vege-Sal or salt, Spike Seasoning (if using), and fresh-ground black pepper. Stir until ingredients are well-combined. Add the egg and stir until the ingredients are mostly coated with egg. (You might be tempted to add another egg, but don't. You'll be surprised how well this sticks together.)

Use a One Tablespoon Cookie Scoop or a steel one-tablespoon measuring spoon to scoop out rounded spoonfuls of the mixture and place it in the mini muffin pan. Bake 15 minutes. Carefully turn each cauliflower tot over in the muffin tin and bake 15 minutes more, or until tots are nicely browned on both sides. Serve hot; these are best served right out of the oven.
