let’s do it

  2. Add onions, bell peppers and garlic in with beef; stir to combine. Once the peppers have started to soften and the onions are translucent, carefully drain excess grease from skillet.
  3. Return to stove reducing heat to medium. Stir in diced tomatoes with juice, broth, tomato sauce, bouillon, Worcestershire sauce and Italian seasoning.
  4. Bring to a boil then stir in uncooked rice. Return to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 25 minutes, or until rice is tender.
  5. Remove skillet from heat, stir lightly to fluff up the rice, sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese and replace the lid. Allow the casserole to rest, covered, for about 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

By adding additional cauliflower rice the carbs are reduced by 75%! By using 1 1/2 cups the serving size is increased to 10 total. Enjoy!

Low Carb Sausage Bacon Bites

bacon sausage

Every once in a while we like to invert our meals, so we will have breakfast for supper. This quick and easy recipe is the perfect main course that is so good and extremely low carb.

Starting with a  14 oz. package of sausage and a 12 oz. package of bacon, cut the smoked sausage into 2 oz. pieces, (about 3″ long). Then, using tooth picks wrap and secure 2 slices of bacon to one piece of sausage. That should come out about right to wrap them all.

Place them in either a cookie sheet or a baking stone (cooking times will vary depending on what you use)

Preheat oven to 350 and bake until the desired crispness of the bacon (25-35 minutes)

Great with egg dishes. Some of the hacks you can do is use rolled sausage instead that has been layered with cheeses, peppers, etc. The sky is the limit to what you can do with this dish! Enjoy!

C Squared Fat Bombs

Being a T2 diabetic that has used interment fasts to help lower blood sugar numbers, I have used fat bombs many times in the past. The only problem with some of the recipes is that they are fairly involved, and they have more carbs then I would like to have or they are empty of any carbs and do not do anything to cut that hunger feeling or the lack of energy when going into ketosis.

What I have found is that by combining just 2 ingredients, in the proper amounts has made the perfect go to food when fasting.

Using 1 oz plastic molds, I add 4 cocao chips to each mold, then top off with a good quality coconut oil. Then it is as simple as putting them in the fridge to get them to set.

Some people that have tried them eat them like candy. I don’t do that. I slip a disk in my cheek and let it slowly dissolve. You get mostly coconut to start off, but after a bit the chocolate starts melting through and gives you just a little bit of sweat taste.

At only 2 grams of carbs, no protein, and a whopping 30 grams of fat, it is the perfect pick me up. Here are some pictures and nutrition info.

Here i am getting ready to pour in the coconut oil. To liquify the coconut oil I use a large bowl with water that has been microwaved. I put the container in the water to get it liquified.

I use Virgin Coconut oil at the least. Cheaper types use harsh extraction processes that compromises the coconut oil.

chocolate

The baking chip I get from Sams Club and it has 60% Cacao with the other being a sweet chocolate. It gives it just a little bit of sweet flavor.

Here are the stats per fat bomb. Give them a try when trying to keep the hunger monster away.

btw: If you are new to keto or low carb or fasting, it can lead to constipation due to the change in dietary habits. These C Sqs will help to keep you more regular!
