THE EASY 5-INGREDIENT KETOGENIC DIET COOKBOOK RECIPE: CHEESE CHIPS AND GUACAMOLE


Over the course of the next few weeks I will be sharing 1 recipe per week from my new cookbook, The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook! The book is available now on Amazon!  This week's featured recipe is Cheese Chips and Guacamole! 

 

All of the recipes in my book have just 5 ingredients! They are seriously the easiest recipes. I wanted to create a cookbook that truly anyone could use. Too often low carb or keto cooking is filled with hard to find ingredients, but not my book

KETO RECIPE: BRUSSELS SPROUTS AU GRATIN


Here is a delicious side dish for Thanksgiving or anytime really! I made a large portion because I am heading to a Friendsgiving, but divide everything by 1/3 to feed 2-4 people! 

Step 1: 3lbs of halved Brussels sprouts, 3 shallots sliced thin, olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast at 425 for 15 minutes, stir halfway through.

Add "breadcrumbs". I used crushed pork rinds, but Know Foods also makes a keto friendly breadcrumb product! Add about a cup.

Pop back in the oven for about 15 minutes. You want your "bread crumbs" to be browned and your cheese bubbling.

A KETO THANKSGIVING!


There are all kinds of ways you can make your keto lifestyle work for the holidays! Last year I cooked a full Thanksgiving meal, complete with my own keto stuffing and mashed cauliflower! I also catered a holiday party for my parent's neighbors with a selection of keto friendly appetizers.

KETO COCOA GIVEAWAY! DELICIOUS MCT OIL HOT COCOA! by Jen Fisch via Keto In The City

I have a DELICIOUS giveaway this week! The team at Giant Sports sent me their new Keto Cocoa which is a Natural MCT Oil Hot Cocoa, and you guys it is INCREDIBLE! It is so rich and creamy and each serving has 6G of healthy fats from the MCT. There are 1.5g of total carbs and .5 net carbs per serving! Just mix with hot water and then I topped this one with whipped cream and cinnamon... YUMMMMMM! 


I am definitely bringing this to my parents house next week for Thanksgiving because my dad is a hot chocolate addict and drinks one every morning, so now I will join him with this deliciousness! It is the perfect time of year for Keto Cocoa! 

 

There are other low carb or keto friendly hot chocolates, but this one has the best combination of healthy fats and super low carbs that I have seen! I am going to be drinking this all the time, I'm also going to try adding it to my coffee. I could totally see getting a grande coffee at Starbucks in a Venti cup (because if you know me, you know I only buy coffee, I never make it lol) and then adding a scoop of this in!

KETO PRODUCT REVIEW: KETONE AID, THE WORLD'S 1ST KETONE ESTER


Watch the full review!

I was super excited to try Ketone Aid! I had watched all of the videos on the Ketone Aid website and was blown away by the results that people spoke about!

Visit INDIEGOGO to buy Ketone Esters for yourself! 

 

Then watch my review the day after on all the benefits!

A few things I noticed: 

  1. I was starving when I took the Ketone Aid and soon after taking it my hunger went away! I ended up eating dinner about 4 hours after taking it. 
  2. I would describe myself as an impatient person. This magnified my impatience. I felt like the entire world was moving in slow motion! My brain felt like it was firing like crazy, so the slowness of other people was super noticable! 
  3. I did not feel jittery and there was not a crash. The feeling just slowly tapered off after 6 hours or so. 

WHAT I'M USING TO TRY AND KEEP MY (ALMOST) 40 YEAR OLD SKIN LOOKING YOUNG


TRYING TO KEEP MY (ALMOST 40 YEAR OLD) SKIN LOOKING YOUNG by Jen Fisch via Keto In The City

This blog post is a little different than my typical keto blogs, but there is a connection! One of the benefits I have seen from following a ketogenic lifestyle is that a diet high in healthy fats is great for your skin! Wild salmon (not farm-raised), which I eat a ton of, is a great source for omega-3 fatty acids. This helps keep your skin supple and moisturized. But food alone, isn't enough in my opinion and so recently I decided to get more serious about my skin routine. 

 

I turn 40 in March and have always been (and will continue to be) an beach loving, sun worshipper. I started wearing sunblock more consistently about 5 years ago, but my daily routine is super minimal, mostly because I am super lazy when it comes to all things makeup / hair etc... So previously I was using wipes to wash my face and a Murad cleanser in the shower. Then if I remembered I would use a Murad toner (usually I didn't remember) and then a moisturizer. I try different moisturizers, but lately I had been using REN Evercalm. I used to use coconut oil, but got out of that habit when I had eyelash extensions (because the oil makes them fall out). 

 

This probably wasn't the worst combination, but I felt like my skin was kind of dull, my pores were more visible than I would like, and overall I felt like I should be doing more. I also didn't want to start spending tons of money on facials, so I figured maybe I should just step up my product game. I went to the Sephora in Manhattan Beach, near my house, in search of some products that could help. I found them and now my routine includes all of the products in the photo below! 

I also still use my Murad Toner that I already had.

I don't use all of these products every day, so here is when and how I use them! 

 

MORNING: 

I usually shower at night, so in the morning I just quickly wash my face and then apply the moisturizer to my face and dot the caffeine solution oil around my eyes. Super quick and easy. I don't wear makeup on my face normally, just eye makeup and maybe some highlighter, so I'm ready super fast. The vitamin C is supposed to repair visible signs of aging in a more gentle way.

  3. The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% EGCG

REGULAR NIGHT: 

5 nights a week I follow this routine. First I wash my face with CEO Cleansing Oil and then use the wipes if there is still eye makeup that didn't get washed off. Then I use the Toner. Once it has soaked in I apply the Luna Sleeping Oil which is blue, but as you rub it into your skin it becomes translucent. After massaging the oil in I wait a couple minutes and then slather on the Good Genes treatment all over my face and then dot the caffeine oil around my eyes. The Luna Oil has retinol in it and the Good Genes has Lactic Acid in it.

  6. The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% EGCG

BABYFACIAL NIGHT: 

Twice a week I do the Babyfacial at night. I put it on a clean, dry face and leave it on for 20 minutes. Then I rinse it off with the CEO Cleansing Oil and apply the Murad toner. Then I apply the Marula Oil, wait 5 minutes and apply the REN Evercalm Moisturizer, I use this one because I worry my skin would get irritated with the Babyfacial and the CEO moisturizer in one night. Then I dot the caffeine solution oil around my eyes. I wake up in the morning and my face is SO SOFT! It's amazing!

So that's the whole routine! I wish I could give you all of this scientific information on why this combination is working for me, but I can't lol. I do know I almost spent as much a someone in a small town might pay in rent, on face stuff and that was painful! BUT it is cheaper than going to get facials all the time and it feels so good to take extra amazing care of your skin. 

 

Also my favorite beauty YouTuber, Wayne Goss, named the Drunk Elephant Babyfacial and The Ordinary Caffeine as 2 of his favorite products as well, so check that out! I'm not the only one who is obsessed:)
