SNACK TIME!

These recipes are all low carb at the very least, keto for sure, and many are suitable for carnivore if you use seasonings. I worked hard to break my snacking habit, especially in the evenings. But as I find my 2 meals getting further and further apart on busy days I often need just a …

Quick Chicken Wraps

I came home HUNGRY and wanted something NOW! This was my answer. And definitely will be the answer in the future! I like to keep chicken or turkey deli meat when I can find a clean brand, and use them for “noodles” or layers or wraps or other things. This time I wrapped a couple …

KETO: Sunday is PIZZA Day!

At least, when Pete and I are home on Sunday we have pizza; most Sundays we pick our grandkids up, take them to church, then out to lunch, and I don’t eat again once we come home. But today we’re home, and I’m really loving this pizza. I always try a little bit different type …

Some Things Just Hit The Spot!

Though I eat a predominantly animal-based diet, I do enjoy a couple of keto days each week (and even an occasional “day off”). The last few days I’ve been wanting cabbage so today I picked up a package of cole slaw mix as I was in no shape to do all the work of dealing …

Cooking: Animal-Based Snickerdoodlers

I recently bought a whole pork belly with the skin on, and cut it into approx. 1# squares. To prepare them, I roast one in the AFO, wrapped in parchment and then foil, skin-side-up, at 325°F, until done. (This depends on the side of the square, the thickness, etc.) I then separate the skin from …

Cooking: Cordon Bleu Lasagna

OK, this isn’t technically a lasagna, though it is layered…and it isn’t technically a chicken cordon bleu, though it has a similar profile…but what it IS, is delicious! In a small round baking dish that I’d sprayed to prevent sticking, I laid down a couple of thin slices of deli chicken…then some diced ham…then some …

Now THIS is Something Good: Chicken Melt Pizza

Sundays have typically been pizza day for Pete & I. But when we’re taking the grands to church, we also take them out for lunch afterward, and then don’t have our pizza. Today, however, the kids had other plans and I couldn’t have gotten to church anyway so we had our pizza day. Pete has …

What a Difference a Shape Makes!

Pork belly. I love the stuff, and eat quite a bit of it. But I wanted to do something a little different tonight. So as I was laying out my pork belly strips to go into the air fryer I twisted them. Seasoned with salt and a little bit of onion powder plus a few …

Cooking: Carnivore Chicken Nugget Patties

Into a bowl I mixed a can of chicken breast (drained), about a quarter cup of pork panko, a large egg, some garlic and onion powders, and Real Salt, and a handful of shredded mozzarella. After mixing thoroughly I coated them in a mixture of pork panko, parm/romano cheese (canned), and a little beef gelatin. …
