Instead of the usual heavily-processed, nutrient-depleted white flour that’s used in dumplings, this is a very simple dough made from coconut flour, eggs and a pinch of baking powder. the raw dumplings, spooned on top go nice and golden brown on top while resting on a bed of chicken stew, and soaking up all the delicious flavors of the chicken gravy. Just the thing for making husbands, and bellies, and husband’s bellies very happy.

If you have ever had tamales, you know there is a specific texture to masa in a tamale, and there is supposed to be a hint of smoky spiciness to the middle meat filling. Some people may be on the verge of offended when I talk about masa without corn, for the word typically represents a corn-based dough used for all kinds of dishes, including pupusas, tortillas and of course tamales. For our version we used flaxseed meal and coconut flour to achieve the required texture.

The concept is so simple and imparts so much flavor into the chicken. It’s hard to believe we don’t use this method more often!

I never really had Americanized fritters since I grew up eating Korean fritters, like 파전 (Korean scallion pancakes) and 김치부친개 (Kimchi pancakes). So when I saw this fritter recipe, I figured it would taste very similar to Korean fritters since the concept of making them was pretty much the same but that wasn’t the case at all. These fritters were wonderfully crisp on the outside with such an enjoyable fluffy interior from the ricotta, which you never get to experience with Korean fritters since it’s made into such a thin layer. Now the best part of these fritters was the lemon flavor, which gave it that refreshing burst of flavor. And that last bit of lemon juice on top made these absolutely perfect. NOTE: To make even lower carb, sub Heavy Whipping Cream for the milk and Almond Flour for the flour.
The Thai stir fry was juicy and paired so well with cashews, we decided right then and there we were going to recreate that dish at home!

This is so easy and so good. I made pulled pork the other night and this is great next to it or on top of it!! My husband said it’s the best coleslaw he has ever eaten. I use prepackaged coleslaw mix and remove the carrot pieces. You can make your own if you like with fresh cabbage.Easy Low Carb Coleslaw
I adore the traditional Italian Caprese salad made with buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes and basil but I wanted to create a more elaborate version with grilled eggplant (aubergines for my UK friends) to make it into a more substantial meal. Fried garlic and balsamic vinegar give this salad a real flavour punch, which I love, but of course you can use a simple dressing of olive oil and lemon instead.

It does have some carbs, but as long as you keep your appetite in check and only eat 1 to 2 pieces, you should be fine.This recipe uses a combination of almond and coconut flour.
Who misses biscuits? That has been one of my most missed things since being dx’d. I have tried the Golden Flax (mild wacky flavor) Coconut Flour (too cakey) Almond Flour (too nutty) and have not had any luck at finding a low carb biscuit that has the taste and fluffiness that I had come to love.
Biscuits in gravy has been one of the most often missed things since I became a diabetic and I have tried several different recipe hacks to make a version that was both delicious and diabetic-friendly. The traditional ones use flour and milk, which both have a bunch of carbs. This recipe has zero carbs. That’s right, zero.
LOW CARB PANCAKES AND WAFFLES
Pancakes for the diabetic is a big problem. We all love them, but they really hate our numbers. This Paleo Hack of this traditional treat may find you having these more and more.
For this recipe, I modified a standard waffle recipe to use almond flour instead of regular wheat flour. Sometimes this works out well without having to make too many other changes. I do find that eggs may need to be increased slightly when using ground almonds instead of regular flour.
These waffles are simply amazing. They are dense, crunchy on the outside and spongy on the inside. I don’t often think that I can’t tell much difference between the grain-free version and the original version, but in this case, if I didn’t know these were made with almond flour, I would never guess it. The only small difference is that I think they are a bit drier than “normal” waffles. (NOTE: Do not add the honey for even lower carb.)

Queso dip – incredible cheesy, creamy and with just the right amount of heat. It’s one of my biggest weaknesses. In my dreams, I eat queso dip every day, just like you would eat soup! But since that isn’t exactly normal and most queso recipes aren’t exactly low carb, I’ve cut back. This week was a little different though, I couldn’t keep my queso cravings at bay, so I did what any low carber currently on the #MakeYouMove campaign would do and went testing recipes. And bam! I made a simple low carb version, that was oh-so-delicious.
This classic Italian sauce is creamy and rich. Traditionally the ingredients are heavy cream, butter, parmesan, salt and pepper. There are many other variations around, often including garlic, egg yolks, flour, bacon, and more! Alfredo is one of the few sauces that I’ll buy pre-made in jars, because the carb count is much lower than in most of the others.
Red Enchilada Sauce is the secret to making good tasting Enchiladas. This recipe is low carb, gluten-free and easy to prepare. Enjoy it on enchiladas, tacos or your morning eggs.
Making the Keto Garlic Salad Dressing is really simple! – Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until it’s creamy and smooth. You can start with 4 cloves of garlic and add more after you taste the dressing, if you feel like it’s not strong enough.
White sauce, or Bechamel as it is also known, is a classic recipe made from butter, milk and flour. This low carb version is not authentic in the slightest – but it is a great substitute!
Avocado Crema is something you need to know how to make. It is the perfect accessory for tacos, salads, rice bowls and pretty much anything else that has even a hint of Mexican flavor.
White Barbecue Sauce is a regional favorite. A traditional Alabama BBQ sauce, this vinegar and mayonnaise based sauce has quickly become a favorite with anyone that’s tried it. It’s not what you envision when you think of barbecue sauce. At all. It’s white. It’s not sweet. It has a mayonnaise base. NOTE: For even lower carb, try it without the sugar.
Although I love real fresh squeezed lemonade (I used to get it on the boardwalk as a treat) I was never a huge lemon dessert fan. That changed when I made lemon curd for the first time four or five years ago. I made these teeny tiny lemon tarts for my sister-in-law’s baby shower. They were adorable and they were delicious. Lemon has grown on me since then. This Creamy Lemon Dessert Sauce is amazing on berries.
Tacos are a great meal that gives a bit more hands-on attitude with what you’re eating.

How can you improve upon a good broccoli cheese soup? Bacon of course! If you’re trying to stick to a ketogenic diet it would be a fantastic addition to your meal plan.

Low Carb Chocolate Whips! Oh, my!
Who doesn’t like fudge? Here is a low carb version that is awesome!
These are called C Sqds because the have coconut oil and cocao chocolate. Perfect for use to transition into keto or fasting. Only 2 carbs per disk.
Since I have been doing Keto I have craved a little sweet at night and these fit the bill very nicely and fit in with my plan. The crumble VERY easily so let them cool a bit before taking off the cookie sheet.
LOW CARB MILKSHAKES
Making thick homemade milkshakes like the fast food restaurants is easy to do. Try this thick and rich low carb dark chocolate frosty milkshake! only 9 carbs for 1/2 serving!
This recipe is super easy and perfect for this time of year when berries are in season I used mixed berries but you can use what you have at home: strawberries, raspberries, wild blueberries or blackberries. It’s quite filling and great for breakfast. Enjoy! 🙂
This is a creamy combination of coffee, chocolate, and caramel.
This thick and creamy milkshake is great for your low-carb or gluten-free diet. I don’t even miss ice cream anymore!
HOLIDAY LOW CARB RECIPES
If your New Year’s Eve just isn’t the same without eggnog, but you’re sticking to low carb eating, I have just the recipe for you.
This low carb eggnog is amazingly easy to throw together. You can use two real eggs instead of the liquid egg product. Personally, I don’t like the idea of drinking actual raw eggs. Eggbeaters are so much easier to work with, too, with no mess from cracking real eggs. NOTE: Using Heavy Whipping Cream instead of milk will reduce the carb count.
This sauteed cabbage recipe with onions and bacon is the perfect accompaniment to your lucky New Years
