If you have been following my blog and social media at all, you know I have been living the low carb and keto lifestyle for about a year now. Yes, I cheat here and there, but I pretty much stay on track. So when my family and I went on a Disney Cruise I knew I had to make keto work for me. It was actually a lot easier than I expected. Sure I had a milkshake or a dessert here and there, but I didn’t binge out on them. And if you wanted to stay strictly keto while onboard, Disney is very accommodating.
My husband and I have been eating keto for a year now, and we are always trying to come up with new recipes that the whole family will enjoy. These low carb keto baked turkey roll-ups are one of those. My 7 year old will ask for them by now at least once a month. I love that I can customize these on an individual basis to fit my family’s preferences. For example, I put no sauce in my youngest daughter’s roll-ups, extra sauce in my oldest daughter’s, and fresh basil in my husbands! This way every one gets what they enjoy.
My family is always on the go, especially during the school year. My daughters have sports and other after school activities so dinner is usually a quick event. This stir fry recipe is something I came up with while trying to have a meal prepared in less than 15 minutes, and still be keto and low carb approved. It quickly became a hit with everyone! Plus it is easy to modify with different veggies and sauces!
One of my favorite things about the keto diet is the fat bombs. Sounds crazy, I know, but they make the perfect after dinner snack and help curb all of my sweet cravings. Sweets have always been my downfall, so these are the perfect way to help me stay on track, without feeling like it! I tried several different Peanut Butter Cup fat bomb recipes before creating my own. This one is more of a tart recipe than a cup, since they are just layered. Still, they are delicious! I hope you enjoy!
Staying on track with keto and low carb living can be hard. Especially when you like to unwind on the holidays (or weekends – let’s be honest) with an alcoholic beverage. Since I have been living this way for about a year now, I have come up with a list of my favorite keto alcoholic beverages. Yup, all of these are keto friendly and low carb approved so enjoy!
My daughters love mac and cheese. I mean, what kids don’t? But low carb/keto has been a big part of our lives for about a year now, and sometimes I am just too tired or busy to make two meals. So when my girls ask for mac and cheese now, this is my go to recipe. It took me a long time to find one that the whole family loves. I finally found a decent recipe, and then had to tweak it just a bit to make it ours. Here is our go to keto mac and cheese – that takes less than 10 minutes to make!
I know better than anyone that staying on the right path eating wise during the holidays can be hard. Keto has been a major part of my life for the last year, and the holidays where I slip. That is not say that cheating here or there is a really bad thing, but I plan to stay mostly on track this year. In order to do that, I put together some recipes that would inspire me to stay eating low carb from some of my favorite sites – and I wanted to share that with you!
One of my favorite things about the holidays is all of the delicious food. And just because I am eating keto now doesn’t mean I have to miss out. This stuffing recipe is totally low carb and keto approved, and makes the PERFECT holiday side dish. It is so good that I don’t even miss my cornbread stuffing! I promise, even your family and friends that don’t eat keto will love it!
My favorite thing about the holidays is the meals. Let’s be honest here. And what is a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner without the best part – the turkey! I spent a lot of time trying different recipes to come up with one that my whole family enjoyed. Because my husband and I are living the keto lifestyle, we had to nix our usual brown sugar brine. After taking our favorite parts from several different recipes, we came up with this one! Enjoy!
I have been more or less living the keto lifestyle since January 2018. Even while on vacation I try to stay as much on the “keto diet” as I can. Of course I allow myself cheats here and there. I wrote an article about eating keto at Disney World, but now I want to share with you my five favorite keto meals there. I never miss out on these when I visit, because they are super delicious and approved for my way of eating. A win win!
