Weekly Meal Plan – 05/05/2019

Guess who's back?! It has definitely been a minute. The first quarter and a half of this year has been kind of crazy. In January, I had to say goodbye to my kitty.

Deeper State Keto – Day 14

This ends the second week of my DSK journey, and today's eating was way off track. Our local chocolate shop, Chocolate Creations, launched their keto and sugar free chocolates today, and I tried most of them. They had truffles, molded chocolates, and almond clusters. They also did chocolate dipped strawberries but I passed on that. … Continue reading Deeper State Keto – Day 14

Deeper State Keto – Week 2

Week one of the Deeper State Keto program is done and I am back to where I was around Thanksgiving before I started cheating.

Keto Cranberry Sauce

The last recipe in our Thanksgiving series is cranberry sauce. This is something that my family believed only came in cans and that it wasn't good unless you could see those ridges before you sliced it and served it. It's also something that they regularly forgot in the fridge until we all sat down to … Continue reading Keto Cranberry Sauce

Keto Turkey Dressing

Now that dessert is complete, we focus on the big show and side dishes. What Thanksgiving dinner is complete without dressing? I have seen a number of recipes for keto bread. Since I  usually make my own cornbread to transform into dressing, I knew that keto friendly dressing would be possible. I was really excited … Continue reading Keto Turkey Dressing

See below for my take on this classic southern treat. Ingredients 1 recipe of our Pecan Shortbread Pie Crust 1 1/2 cup whole pecans 1 1/4 cup … Continue reading Keto Pecan Pie
