Simple Everything Crisp Bread (Keto, Low-Carb, Gluten-Free)

A LOW-CARB CRISPY BREAD THAT YOU CAN MAKE AT HOME   Yay, for Everything Crisp Bread my friends as this is the cracker bread snack you WILL want to make and it’s SO EASY. Best of all is that you can add your own flavours and you don’t have to enjoy a low-carb, keto diet to love them as much as I do. How cool is that? I like to compare this Crisp Bread to a Ryvita or Wasa bread if you are familiar with that brand from the grocery store but you can make it at home for far less. Keep in mind the texture and ingredients will differ but the crisp nature is what we were looking for as there are others out there that are similar but the crisp factor is missing. Everyone who leads a low-carb lifestyle knows what I’m talking about when they dream about something crispy to eat as it can be tough to create products that offer that satisfaction. The problem with gluten-free is that it lacks gluten which means your alternatives are nut-based for the most part which don’t offer much crisp at all. Mrs. CBB has craved crispy anything for years […]

Easy Keto Strawberry Rhubarb Custard Bars

YOU CAN MAKE ANY FRUIT LOOK AND TASTE DELICIOUS WITH CUSTARD   Some of the best rhubarb recipes start with your imagination and that’s what I did when Mrs. CBB and I created these easy Keto Strawberry rhubarb custard bars. These are going to be the bars you will want to make the next time you have a BBQ or potluck to go to or you are hosting a dinner party. If you are hosting a garden party or participating in one you can make these a couple of days in advance which is great news. No one likes to rush around the night before or the day of. Everyone who eats a sugar-free, gluten-free, low-carb, keto diet knows that having sweets once in a while is somewhat desired just like everyone else. The great part is with nuts and coconut you are able to create so many delicious low-carb recipes from cookies, loaf breads to pretzels and so on. Nuts are the perfect substitution for flour which is a gluten nightmare. With a huge patch of fresh, organic rhubarb growing in our back garden and a recent trip to the strawberry patch we had enough fruit to start baking […]

Creamy Radish Potato Salad (Keto, Low-Carb)

TAKE POTATO SALAD TO THE NEXT LEVEL AND LEAVE THE POTATOES BEHIND   If you’re looking for an amazing potato salad this Country-Style Radish Potato Salad has everything you’re looking for BUT without the high-carb starchy potatoes. You’ll find this low-carb radish potato salad has all the same flavours as an old-fashioned potato salad but without the high carbohydrate count and starch that comes along with it. For every 100 grams of red radishes you will get 3.4 grams of carbs, 1.6 grams of dietary fiber and 1.9 grams of natural sugar. Best of all, only 16 calories and if you are on a keto diet and minus the fiber content your net carbs are even lower. 3.4g-1.6g=1.8 grams net carbs per 100 grams. That’s not bad considering 100 grams of potatoes has 17 grams of carbohydrates!   What are red radishes?   The radish is an edible root vegetable of the Brassicaceae family that was domesticated in Europe in pre-Roman times. Radishes are grown and consumed throughout the world, being mostly eaten raw as a crunchy salad vegetable.- Wikipedia Red radishes are high in fiber, Vitamin C and low in calories and carbohydrates and in season during the spring […]

Copycat Starbucks Strawberry Acai Pink Drink Keto Style

YOUR GO-TO SUMMER PINK DRINK LOW ON THE CARBS AND SUGAR-FREE   When Mrs. CBB made her way to Starbucks on the way home from a recent trip she decided to try their popular pink drink known as the Strawberry Acai Starbucks Refresher but keto style. In all honesty she had no idea what she was about to order but the barista was very helpful and together they created a sugar-free Passion-Fruit Strawberry Pink Drink made with coconut milk. Now that the warm weather is officially here we thought no better way to celebrate than to make the expensive grande $6.20 Starbucks Pink Drink at home. This will obviously be a huge savings to the Starbucks Pink Drink lover and for anyone who wants to control the amount of sugar and carbs they are getting in their diet. Before we started our keto pink drink we put our large fancy glasses in the freezer to frost them up. Nothing better than a cold, frosty drink in a frosty mug. Right? Ingredients for Strawberry Acai Starbucks Refresher (these are the original ingredients) Ice, Strawberry Acai Base [Water, Sugar, White Grape Juice Concentrate, Natural Flavors, Citric Acid, Natural Green Coffee Flavor, Fruit […]

This avocado taco dip is so easy to make and you’ll have it ready in minutes. Taco Dip with Avocado anyone? Yes Please!! This is more than your average taco dip…it’s the best dip you will ever make.
