Roasted radishes are an absolute delight! Especially for those following a low-carb or Keto lifestyle. We found this specific process produces the best roasted radishes we've had thus far. The process begins early in the day, does not take a lot of your time, just time to allow them to dry out completely after performing a pre-boil. So worth it!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Start process early in the day.
  • Remove tops and snip bottoms from each radish in each of the 3 bunches.
  • Wash, trim, and half each radish.
  • Place halved radishes in a large pot with about 1 Tbsp sea salt.
  • Bring to a boil and allow to gently boil for about 10-15 minutes. (From the time I set mine on the stove until finished is approx. 20 minutes, total time will depend on how quickly or slowly it takes the water to come to a boil)
  • Drain radishes and allow to sit in a large strainer for about an hour. I then take them out of the strainer and set on a couple of layers of paper towels and let them dry out completely. Usually about another hour or so. 
  • About an hour or more before you are ready to roast the radishes, season them with the seasonings stated above. Be careful to not use too much salt as they boiled in salt water. A light coat is fine. Preheat oven to either 400 or 450 degrees (400 degrees for low altitude, 450 for high altitude).
  • Spread olive oil on parchment paper (we use parchment paper for easy clean up), light layer of oil. Add seasoned radishes and roast in a preheated 400-450 degree oven for approx. 50-60 minutes. (400 degrees for low altitude, 450 for high altitude).
  • Remove from oven, lightly sprinkle with shredded parmesan cheese and serve. (we put ours back in the oven for a few minutes, this is optional)

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Chicken Wings
    Preheat oven to 420 degrees (we live at a high elevation, lower elevations may need to lower to 375-400 degrees). We then use paper towels to dry our chicken wings. Once the skin is nice and dry we then spray a light coat of oil (olive, avocado, etc.). We then season them with sea salt, black pepper, powdered onion, powdered garlic, and paprika. Bake for about 30-40 minutes, until skin is crisp and browned.
  • Sauce
    Place butter in medium skillet or pan and gently melt butter. Add rest of ingredients to melted butter. Use a whisk to combine ingredients and allow to gently simmer until the ingredients begin to thicken slightly. Once wings are finished baking add 1/4 of the sauce, allow to cool to a safe eating temperature, then enjoy.

Notes

Nutrition Facts are based on 1/4 of the final sauce recipe.
Here are the nutrition facts for 1/4 of the sauce and 12 party wings:

If you would like the full carb count, please plug in all ingredients to your favorite Keto app and you should come up with the correct amount. Remember you are only consuming about 1/4 of the final sauce mixture.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Turn 6 quart slow cooker to high heat and allow to preheat.
  • Finely dice the onion and red pepper.
  • Add 2 Tbsp olive oil (or oil of your choice) to preheated slow cooker. Now add onions and red pepper. Allow to simmer until the onions are translucent.
  • Now add tomatoes, tomato sauce, bone broth, and all seasonings. Allow to cook on high about 2-3 hours.
  • Brown ground beef in separate pan or pot, drain, add to tomato mixture.
  • Brown ground breakfast sausage, I use the same pot as I cooked the ground beef in, drain, if necessary and add to tomato/beef mixture.
  • Dice left-over brisket and add to slow cooker.
  • Dice paneer cheese, as shown in picture, and add to slow cooker.
  • Allow to cook, on high, for about 3-4 more hours.

Notes

If you are concerned about the sodium, use a no-salt added chili powder and no-salt added cajun spice mix. This comes out to 7 net carbs per 1 cup serving and makes a filling meal.

Being raised in the South I regularly consumed cornbread. When I decided to go grain-free, prior to becoming Keto, I missed cornbread. I worked hard to come up with a delicious substitute that resembles what I grew up on. Cornbread is one of those foods that, depending on how it was made in your area, you will either love this version or not. This version should resemble a slightly sweet cornbread, almost like the Jiffy mix type.

Grains, Starches, Sugars, and Keto, oh my!

Grains, starches, and sugars are all pretty taboo when following a Ketogenic lifestyle. These three types of foods can be very confusing, especially when first beginning the Keto journey. You will find that it becomes increasingly necessary to read labels and learn the names of (including “hidden” or not so common names of) each of these types of foods. Some types can fall into more than one category and that’s okay. The important issue is to become familiar with most of the names on today’s blog post. Be sure to bookmark the page so you can come back and refer to it often. Especially while you shop! Continue reading “Grains, Starches, Sugars, and Keto, oh my!”

Keto Veggies

Loaded with fiber and disease-fighting nutrients, vegetables should be a central part of your Keto (low-carb) dietary lifestyle. With a few exceptions, most vegetables are quite low in carbohydrates and calories. Be sure to eat a wide variety of different colors of vegetables because different pigments — green, yellow, orange, red, blue, purple, and white – indicate the presence of different types of phytochemicals that fight cancer, heart disease, and numerous other health problems.

Fungus: Shiitake Mushroom

Shiitake Mushroom

Medicinal mushrooms have an established history of use in traditional oriental therapies. Contemporary research has validated and documented much of the ancient knowledge. Over the last three decades, the interdisciplinary fields of science that study medicinal mushrooms has sprung up and has increasingly demonstrated the potent and unique properties of compounds extracted from a range of species. Currently, the field is being developed into a very fruitful area. Modern clinical practice in Japan, China, Korea and other Asian countries rely on mushroom-derived preparations. Mushrooms have been studied for nutritional and medical purposes for its various potential anti-tumoral and immunomodulatory components like polysaccharides that have been identified.
