Mozzarella Prosciutto Bombs

Ingredients:

  • 6 balls of Angel & Franco Oil Marinated Mozzarella

  • 12 slices of Citterio Prosciutto di Parma

  • 6 Nature Sweet Cherubs

  • 6 fresh basil leaves

  • 1 tbsp. of Italian Seasoning

  • 2 tbsp. of Kirkland Extra Virgin Olive Oil

 

Directions:

  1. Take 2 slices of prosciutto and make a cross with them.

  2. Using a knife hollow out a hole in the middle of the marinated mozzarella ball, stuff a grape tomato inside.

  3. Place basil leaf and tomato stuffed mozzarella ball in the middle of the crossed prosciutto, add a pinch of Italian seasoning.

  4. Cross the left and then the right prosciutto slice over the mozzarella ball. Then cross the upper and lower prosciutto slice over that. Now you have a perfect pocket of prosciutto. Repeat for all 6.

  5. Heat a skillet over medium high heat with 2 tbsp. of olive oil. Once olive oil is hot add all 6 mozzarella prosciutto bombs and cook on the top and bottom until crispy. Then quickly sear the sides at the end.

  6. Place bombs on a paper towel lined plate to cool and then serve.


Pork Rind Nachos for the Win!

I have mentioned before that I had never had a Pork Rind in my life until I went Keto. But then one day I bought them and realized I could use them in a million different ways. One of the easiest and most delicious ways to use them is in keto-fied nachos. Same crunch as a chip, but none of the carbs- PERFECT! 

You probably don't need a recipe for nachos, but check the video out and then I have put some details below!

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Layer pork rinds and cheese in a casserole dish. I like to mix regular and spicy pork rinds. 
  3. Add your meat. Usually I use carnitas, but I was out, so chicken breast strips will do! I added Tajin seasoning for a little kick. Add more cheese on top of meat. 
  4. Add jalapeños (or pepperoncinis are great too!). 
  5. Bake for about 5 minutes or until cheese is fully melted. 
  6. Top with sour cream and guac, you can also add pico de gallo if you wish!
  7. Eat!

KETO YOUTUBE: CAN I WORKOUT WHILE ON A KETOGENIC DIET?

There seems to be a lot of confusion about working out while on a ketogenic diet, so here I try to clarify that yes you can workout while on keto, but you need to pay special attention to your electrolytes and also allow your body to adjust to a new way of eating.


NEW YOU TUBE VIDEO! DOES KETO HELP PSORIASIS AND PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS?

I have suffered from Psoriatic Arthritis and Psoriasis for almost 20 years. In fact, it was my desire to reduce the inflammation in my body which led me to the Keto lifestyle almost 2 years ago.
