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.

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 […]

Summer Fresh Rhubarb Salad with Toasted Cashews

SALAD MAKING WITH THIS NEW WAY OF ENJOYING RHUBARB   Each year we have an abundance of rhubarb from our one plant that gives us 4 crops throughout the summer months. This season our new recipe is a colourful summer fresh rhubarb salad with fennel and other crisp vegetables topped with toasted cashews and tossed in a light sweet apple cider vinaigrette. YES, this salad is low-carb and perfect for the keto diet as rhubarb is low in carbs. Healthy salads are always part of our menu plan during the summer months so putting together salad combinations that are bright and unique with a homemade salad dressing always hits the spot. Summer salads in our kitchen almost always include a protein so pairing this gorgeous rhubarb salad with honey glazed BBQ’d Atlantic salmon was a hit. Mrs. CBB had a bit of her sugar-free syrup instead to keep the rhubarb salad and salmon dish keto friendly. Growing rhubarb has been an experience for Mrs. CBB and I only because she had never tried it before and I couldn’t believe how expensive it was to buy at the supermarket. Forget about buying organic as the price is even more pricier. What […]
