Low Carb Garlic Herb Shoestring Jicama Fries

The most popular post on my site on a consistent basis is the recipe for my Low Carb Seasoned Jicama Fries. They’re one of my favorites to make and are a hit with readers on here too, but have a bit of a kick to them with the spice blend I used. This new recipe gives you the same great, crispy fry feel and flavor but with a garlic herb seasoning mix instead.

Low Carb Loaded Cauliflower Mash (Keto)

I took a poll of some of my family recently of their favorite dish at Christmas time. Mine was always the twice baked potatoes my Mom or Aunt would make. Pretty much everyone I polled gave the same answer is me. That's because they are a delicious masterpiece and I would eat an entire pan of them and nothing else if I could. Unfortunately, they are very much not paleo. For starters, they are made with boxed potatoes. Yes, you can use real potatoes, but huge holiday meals already take a ton of work so that shortcut is much easier. This year, I wanted to create a recipe that would give me the taste I missed from my favorite dish, would be a healthier option and would be easy to make.

Cinnamon Coconut Roasted Pecans (Refined Sugar Free, Vegan)

When I was younger, the girls in my family used to go to the Festival of Trees in our hometown. It was a huge event held at the local hockey rink and it is some of my favorite memories. My grandma LOVED Christmas (seriously, her decorations would have put Santa to shame) so to spend hours looking at holiday decor and Christmas trees wasn't unusual.

Low Carb Crispy Seasoned Jicama Fries

Hands down, my favorite side to any meal at a restaurant is french fries. I equate biting down into warm, crunchy french fries to biting into a small piece of heaven. That bit of heaven though is almost always fried in bad oils, involves eating a sh*t ton of carbs and can just generally make me feel slightly greasy and gross. My solution to this has been making lower carb alternatives at home, that are just as crunchy and just as, if not more, flavorful.

Pork Lover's Breakfast Casserole (Low Carb, Paleo)

I absolutely love Thanksgiving and spending time with family, but it's usually a bit hectic for me. I know I'm not the only one that has to spend the day juggling multiple family events and eating 400x in the span of 3 hours. Well, this year, it's going to be a bit different for us.

Low Carb Sweet Pepper Frittata (Dairy Free, Paleo)

If you know me, you know I love my breakfast food. I love my hashes and my gluten free quiches. My Paleo pancakes and my casseroles. The list could go on. In fact, let's add to that list frittatas.  I started toying with frittatas last year.

Why I Went Low Carb Paleo

I've never been one to count my carbs. A few years ago, when I started working out with a personal trainer they had me focusing on calories and fat. Not carbs. When I found Paleo, it was never about counting anything. It was about eating nutrient dense food that wasn't made with a bunch of crappy oils or filled with a ton of sugar or made with ingredients that I had to google.
