KETO RECIPE: Lemon Blueberry Bread


It still amazes me that I can live a keto Lifestyle and still enjoy food as decadent as this Keto Lemon Blueberry Loaf.

This bread is an actual slice of heaven. I adapted this recipe from my Cream Cheese Blueberry Muffin Recipe featured in Keto In 30 Minutes and turned it into a Lemon Blueberry Bread! The secret to the sweet Keto bread is the same as the muffins: Almond Flour, Erythritol, Cream Cheese, and Heavy Whipping Cream.

I love baking this bread on Sunday and snacking on it all week! It is also the perfect thing to bring to an office party or a house warming party! Top a slice square of Grass-fed Butter and reheat it to perfection!

Keto-BEAM Electrolyze and Micro-Boost Supplements


Take a capful each morning and use the mist as needed!

Take a capful each morning and use the mist as needed!

If you have been following Keto in the City for any time at all, you probably know that I am a huge proponent of electrolytes. I do my best to get enough electrolytes from the food that I eat, but I still find it very helpful to supplement. Recently I was traveling and wasn’t able to eat as well as I would at home, I didn’t have my pink salt, and I couldn’t seem to find good avocado anywhere. That night I got the worst foot cramps and there was literally nothing I could do except try and stretch them out. Now I travel with the Keto-BEAM travel pack so that I can stay on top of making sure my body is getting everything it needs.

 

Keto-BEAM is an awesome company that specializes in supplements. Their products not only give you the electrolytes you need to get rid of your post workout headache but also provide minerals that are 100% bio-available meaning your body can absorb and use them immediately. If you are just starting keto Keto-BEAM will be a lifesaver, I wish it existed when I first started so I could have avoided the dreaded keto flu!

 

My favorite Keto-BEAM products are Electrolyze and Micro-Boost. Keto-BEAM recommends that you take these two supplements together if you are first starting out on Keto.

  • Electolyze is designed to provide you with the world’s strongest electrolytes and a bunch of trace minerals that our bodies need, but don’t create on our own.

  • Micro-Boost is a micro-nutrient supplement that provides important antioxidant support, removing environmental toxins that are released when you’re metabolizing fat via ketosis.

THE SCIENCE

Here’s a little about the science behind Keto-BEAM’s products: Because of America’s reliance on pesticides and production-farming practices that value quantity over quality, our food and soils are depleted of natural and extremely important minerals and micro-nutrients. In healthy soil, a specific break down of microbes results in Fulvic and Humic Complexes. These complexes are transferred into our food and help our bodies carry nutrients into our cells (fulvic) and to remove toxins (humic). Keto-BEAM’s Electrolyze and Micro-BOOST provide what is missing in our modern food supply. The Electrolyze supplement contains a Fulvic Complex, which is a powerful and natural electrolyte balancer for the body. Fulvic Complexes combine with trace minerals to deliver nutrients, amino acids and vitamins directly into the cells. Electrolyze contains the fulvic complex that we are so desperately lacking as well as trace minerals that are 100% bio-available (immediately ready to be used by your body). Keto-BEAM’s Micro-Boost is a Humic Complex that carries bio-waste and environmental toxins out of the body, making it an ideal aid in the relief of muscle aches and Keto flu symptoms.

Is it possible to fall in love with electrolytes?! ;)

Is it possible to fall in love with electrolytes?! ;)

Humic and Fulvic Complexes have been used in China since the 15th century as anti-inflammatories and blood coagulating agents. Since then, Humic and Fulvic Complexes have been used to treat many illnesses from ulcerous infections to rheumatoid arthritis.  And now, Keto-BEAM has made it possible for you to use them to optimize your Keto Health.

KETO RECIPE: Strawberry-Raspberry Smoothie Bowl


Just when you thought you had added cauliflower to everything possible… meet the Strawberry-Raspberry CAULIFLOWER Smoothie! Sounds weird, but tastes amazing.

Frozen (previously cooked) cauliflower added into smoothies makes them thick and creamy and doesn’t add any kind of weird taste.

Don’t love Cauliflower as much as me? That’s ok, no one does. You can swap out the cauliflower in this recipe for 1/2 an avocado. They both do the same thing: add a great texture without changing the taste.

This Strawberry-Raspberry Smoothie Bowl is almost too pretty to eat! It’s Instagramable, Delicious, and KETO!

These colors are irresistible. Making this bowl feels like creating a work of art and I LOVE IT!

The Secret to the amazing color is Blue Majik which can be purchased on my amazon store! It’s not necessary for the taste of the Smoothie but it sure does make things more Fun!

Keto Supplements: Ceylon Cinnamon Capsules

Cinnamon is one of my favorite ingredients! It is absolutely delicious but it’s also so good for us!

“Research has supported the benefits of cinnamon by showing its ability to support healthy immune and cellular function, healthy carbohydrate metabolism, promote normal digestion, improve blood glucose control, combat inflammation, and support healthy cardiovascular function.” -Equip Foods

However, It is really hard to consume enough cinnamon in one day to get all of these amazing benefits. (There are only so many Fat Head Cinnamon Rolls a girl can eat!)

That’s why I was so grateful when I found out that Equip foods was launching their Ceylon Cinnamon Supplement!

Every serving (2 caps) of Equip Cinnamon Caps contains 1,200 mg of Ceylon Cinnamon.  Ceylon Cinnamon is more beneficial than other types of Cinnamon. It is free of Cassia and other compounds that are said to be toxic in large doses.

Equip Cinnamon caps are known to help with digestion, give you more energy, and even reduce the effects of a higher carb meal. Cinnamon is also famous for being an anti-inflammatory.

Equip found a way to make getting all of the benefits of large quantities of cinnamon with out having to endure a mouthful of spice or a bellyache. These Ceylon Cinnamon Caps are made with the highest quality ingredients and were designed to fit into your Keto Lifestyle.

KETO RECIPE: Cloud Eggs

When I first saw cloud eggs I was amazed! I love poached eggs, but other kinds of over-easy eggs are underwhelming. But these Cloud Eggs are anything but boring! A runny yolk in the middle of Fluffy and beautifully seasoned egg whites? I am in!

This is my new favorite way to eat eggs. The Parmesan adds a beautiful crust to the fluffy egg whites. So you have smooth yolks, fluffy whites, and crunchy bacon and cheese all in one bite!


Parmesan Cloud Eggs

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 large eggs, separated. Set the Yolks aside

  • Salt

  • 2 crispy bacon slices, crumbled

  • 1 scallion, finely chopped

  • 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated

  • Black pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.

  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

  3. Using a mixer, beat together the egg whites and salt until they are stiff.

  4. Fold in the scallions, Parmesan cheese, crumbled bacon. Careful not to knock the air out of the whites.

  5. Scoop the egg white mixture on to the baking sheet. Creating four mounds. Create a nest in the middle of each mound for the egg yolk.

  6. Bake the mounds for about 3 minutes, until they’re slightly golden.

  7. Using a spoon Gently add a yolk to the middle of each nest, opening up the nest a bit more if needed.

  8. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes. You want the yolk to stay runny.

  9. Remove the eggs and season with salt and pepper.
