Makes a delicious breakfast, egg, cheese, and flax bun! McDonald's has nothing on us!
In a small glass or stainless steel bowl, mix egg whites
and cream of tartar for about 3-5 minutes or until stiff and dry (egg whites
should look and feel like meringue or are stiff enough to form a “mountain
peak” without toppling over).
In a separate bowl, mix the Stevia, salt and cream cheese
with the yolks. **optional: add desired flavor(s) to the yolk mixture.
Using a spatula, gently fold the egg yolk mixture into
the white mixture do 1/3 at a time into the white mixture. Do with care so you
do not break down the whites.
Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray or use
parchment paper. Spoon the mixture on the sheet. Make 6 rounds then
partially flatten each mound.
Bake for 35 minutes (you want them slightly softer, not
crumbly). Let cool on the sheet for a few minutes, and then remove to a rack
and allow them to cool.
Store in a loosely open sack and allow to rest on the
counter before use (otherwise they might be too moist). May be refrigerated or

This morning I actually added a small handful of baby spinach and ice to my smoothie... nice way to get your greens in and not even know it. It will add about 1 Ne Carb to your shake, but it's well worth it!
These thinly sliced steaks are a dream! Take them out of the freezer and they cook in minutes! I've also used Steak-eez brand found at Costco, but the one near me doesn't sell them (sad), I found the Steak-umm brand at our local Wal-Mart in the frozen meat section!!

5-6 Steak-umm steaks
2 tsp. Blackened Steak Seasoning
1 small White Onion, sliced
1 small Green Bell Pepper, thinly sliced
Your choice of Cheese (optional)
1. Place olive oil, sliced onions and sliced peppers in skillet, cook on med-high til good and ready and onions are transparent! Transfer to plate for later.
2. In the same pan add Steak-umm steaks, breaking as you add them in the pan. Sprinkle Steak Seasoning over meat and cook thoroughly.
3. Add onion and pepper mixture back to the pan and cook for another 3-8 minutes, depends if you like your steak with a little crisp, as some do!
4. Serve over a bed of Baby Spinach and top with your choice of cheese! (optional)
While my mother-in-law was visiting from out of town she made dinner one night. Sticking to our new Keto-Diet and what I had in my kitchen ,she came up with this glorious dish! To this date, it's one of our favorites!! I've made it at least once a week since then!
1. In large skillet and on med heat, add 2 TBS butter, 2 TBS olive oil, and sliced onion. Cook for about 5 minutes. Add sprigs of Rosemary and Thyme, stir and cook onions till onions are transparent and "carmalize", about another 5-8 mins. Transfer onion mix to a large plate for later.
2. In the same pan, on med-high heat, add 1 TBS butter, 1 TBS olive oil, chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook thoroughly.
3. Add onion mix w/ herbs back to the chicken; stir and reduce heat to med-low. Cook another 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In keeping with my low-carb diet, I've been using these Ketone Sticks! It's a fun motivator to see how I'm doing each week!! below is some information I've read about them and the function!
How do the ketone test strips work, and where can I get them?
urine-testing strips, also called Ketostix or just ketone sticks ...
are small plastic strips that have a little absorptive pad on the end.
This contains a special chemical that will change colour in the presence
of ketones in the urine. The strips may change varying shades of pink
to purple, or may not change colour at all. The container will have a
scale on the label, with blocks of colour for you to compare the strip
after a certain time lapse, usually 15 seconds. Most folks simply hold a
strip in the flow of urine. Other folks argue that the force of the
flow can "wash" some of the chemical away, and advise that a sample of
urine be obtained in a cup or other container, then the strip dipped
The chemical reagent is very sensitive to moisture,
including what's in the air. It's important to keep the lid of the
container tightly closed at all times, except for when you're getting a
strip to take a reading. Make sure your fingers are dry before you go
digging in! They also have an expiry date, so make note of this when you
purchase the strips ... that's for the UNopened package. Once opened,
they have a shelf-life of about 6 months -- you may wish to write the
date you opened on the label for future reference.
strips can be purchased at any pharmacy, (i got mine at Wal-Mart) and are usually kept with the
diabetic supplies. In some stores they're kept behind the counter, so if
you don't see them on the shelf, just ask the pharmacist; you don't
need a prescription to buy them.
