I’m about to share my secret for having such good skin, very few wrinkles and overall good health. My smoothie! I drink it every day because I can tell the difference in the way my complexion looks and the way my joints feel when I don’t drink it.Continue reading
My mom, God rest her soul, made the best peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in the world. She was all about the butter! She used real butter, peanut butter, and apple butter…
I kid you not!
If anyone would like to share their secret for peeling hard boiled eggs, I would love to know. I have some theories and I’m willing to share them of course, but I really think it depends on the egg! I’ve tried using old eggs and new eggs, and sometimes the older the better, other times, not so much.Continue reading
What is it about lettuce that makes it such a divine alternative to bread? I made myself some tuna and egg salad, which has always been a favorite of mine since I was little, but since I stopped eating bread years ago, I have found Romain lettuce to be the perfect alternative to bread.Continue reading
OK, so I can’t get the meat that I normally get, so I’m just getting whatever they have. Last week it was OsoBuco, that was delicious! This week it was Korean ribs. I didn’t know what Korean ribs were, but I ordered them anyway. I’m glad I did.Continue reading
I decided to make some mushroom soup with some chicken broth left over from a chicken that I baked. Since I’m doing keto and because I have all of my groceries delivered I was low on vegetables so the best I could do was cream of mushroom soup. I didn’t even have an onion 🙁 but decided to have a go at it anyway.Continue reading
Looking for a substitute for grains? Here you go!
I don’t think there’s a better substitute for grain than hempseed florets. I like them as a morning cereal or as a substitute for rice at dinner. They are loaded with protein, 10 grams per 3 tablespoons. They also have 15 g of polyunsaturated fat, the good fat, and finally and best of all, they have effectively one carbohydrate.
I usually use the hempseed florets as a cold cereal in the morning. They’re perfect on a keto diet! I put berries on top, some cinnamon and heavy cream. If I’m not doing keto, I use coconut or almond milk. I like this warm as well as cold.
Another great way to use hemp seed florets is in place of rice. When I use it as a rice substitute, I heat it up in water or I sauté it with onions and celery. For the sauté, use a tablespoon of coconut oil and a half cup of diced celery and onion. Sauté celery and onion until translucent then add the hemp seed florets last. Season to taste. I use adobo seasoning on mine. Hempseed is the perfect complement to any meat or dish that you would normally serve with rice.
