Chicken Verde Taco Bowl
Asparagus Dill Egg Casserole
This is a delicious recipe using Fathead dough. For you who follow a ketogenic protocol, you probably know exactly what I'm talking about! It's one of the best bread/roll/pizza crust alternatives and is loved by keto and non-keto people alike! I will caution you, though; if you are a non-dairy consumer then perhaps skip the fathead wrap and make a bacon burrito bowl instead! OR you could substitute with a Siete tortilla/wrap (Whole Foods carries these or you can order them online).
This is perfect if you are following a low carb protocol, but even if you aren't it is delicious and everyone will love it! The flavor was outstanding and it was a pretty dinner to put together (win!). I also love that you can dress this up however you prefer with toppings to individualize for the fam. I am also not the biggest fan of leftovers, but this one was really good for lunch the next day!
I am typically pretty simple with my recipes because I don't like complicated! But, with our grass fed beef business, I like to try all the different cuts and play with recipes. This was my first time with Osso Bucco, which is an Italian dish that is braised most often beef stock and a red wine. It is typically made from a veal shank, although the cut we offer is from beef shanks (you could also use thick-cut short ribs as an alternative). The flavor really was amazing! I LOVE the Gremolata that goes on top!!
The flavor in this roast is ridiculous. We are in LOVE with this! You really can't get much easier than this, either. We used a roast from our own grass fed beef (my husband and I have a grass fed beef business in the Willamette Valley in Oregon). Although I have been big into using the crockpot this Fall, this recipe would be perfect any time of year. It shredded basically on it's own when it was done and I put a big scoop in the middle of a butter lettuce leaf (love that stuff!). It makes for amazing taco meat! It would also be great along side mashed potatoes or cauliflower mash (if you've not tried that I encourage you to do so especially if you are following a ketogenic protocol).
This is (low carb) comfort food at it's finest! If you have not yet delved into the world of cauliflower instead of potatoes; I highly encourage you to do so! I was hesitant. I've historically been the person who would rather just have the real thing. This, though, will not leave you disappointed! Some people use lamb in Shepard's Pie and you can absolutely substitute some or all of the ground beef in this recipe with lamb. I prefer beef so that's what I used. Also, the only dairy (aside from the butter in the cauliflower which can be replaced with Ghee) is the cheddar cheese on top. You can easily omit this for a dairy free option and it would still be delicious, OR use a dairy free cheese!
Cheesy goodness right here! This is the best low carb, gluten free comfort food! Obviously, you can use the "crust" and change up the filling to make whatever kind of calzone you would like. I actually made extra crust dough and made little biscuits out of the rest for snacks or as part of another meal. They are delicious warm with butter. This also works perfectly as just a pizza crust. There are so many different low carb (keto) pizza crust recipes and I will say this is by far my favorite that I've made so far, and I have made MANY! You can also easily switch up the herbs and spices and create your own special flavor. I love Trader Joe's "Everything but the Bagel" seasoning on things like this!
Okay keto people! This one is for YOU :) This jalapeño burger is AMAZING....and messy...but mostly amazing! If you are a little nervous about the jalapeño being too hot, just make sure to de-seed them well andy ou can cook them a bit before adding them to the burger to bring that heat level down a bit. I highly recommend you use hormone free, antibiotic free, nitrate/nitrite free and grass fed and finished whenever you have such options with your animal products. Any of those attributes in your food will be part of your own system once you eat it. You don't want that added inflammation, hormone imbalance, etc. to contend with!
These are hands down some of the best tasting meatballs I've ever had! We did test them out with some marinara as well and they were good, but I really preferred them without in order to have the unmasked flavor of the meatballs. They are that good!! You could easily replace the cheese with a non-dairy version of your choice for a dairy free recipe! As for the spaghetti squash, I absolutely recommend baking it WHOLE in order to easily cut it in half! This method has been a game changer for me! I would avoid spaghetti squash because it was such a pain in my rear to cut open. Now I just bake it whole and...HELLO...it's SO easy!
