Maybe you've heard of egg roll in a bowl, a staple in the lchf (low carb high fat, aka keto) community. Likely, you've also heard it called by another name: crack slaw. Why do people call it crack slaw, you ask? Because it's suuuuper addictive. It's cheap to make, comes together in about 10 minutes, and it's filled with flavors everybody loves, not to mention good-for-you veggies. However, the recipes I was running to online weren't doing it for me…so I came up with my own. Glow Getters, allow me to introduce you to a REAL crack slaw. Once you've had this egg roll in a bowl, you won't look at the other versions the same.Read More
Introducing keto colcannon, a spin on a traditional Irish dish that is sure to please. Recipes for colcannon vary, but one thing is clear—colcannon must have two three things: mashed potatoes and cabbage (or kale), mixed together and topped with a pat or two of butter. This recipe adds one more variation to the mix by subbing cauliflower for the potatoes. You won't wanna miss this!Read More

There are two key components of maintaining a keto diet, in my opinion: figuring out a way to enjoy your favorite flavors that your palate still craves and getting in all the fats you need to truly make a diet ketogenic. A keto diet is, after all, a high fat diet.
While meats and veggies are the star of your diet, I like to think of the other items—oils, seasonings, accompaniments, etc.—as the supporting cast. Read on to find out what's in my supporting cast!Read More

I wrote about bulletproof before, a couple years ago, but I figured it's time for an update. A lot of people are confused by what they see online because bulletproof tends to be heavily branded or specialized—there is, of course, the actual Bulletproof brand that was founded by Dave Asprey, who really kicked this whole bulletproof trend off, and there are other people who tell you their version of "butter coffee," which generally starts with some organic coffee that costs an arm and a leg or is ridiculously difficult to prepare.
We don't do that over here. Your bulletproof drink can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it. I have a few bulletproof recipes on the site already, each very different, that gives you a glimpse of the ways bulletproof drinks can take on a new life. I encourage you to try some! Or, even, experiment with your own favorite bulletproof blend.
Today, I'll give you the bulletproof basics—the ingredients you need to make a bulletproof drink, and optional add-ins to help it fit what you need. Because aren't options the fun part of life? Let's get into it.Read More
One of the best things about following a high fat, low carb diet is that most people rarely feel the need for snacks—the inherent nature of the foods you eat on a ketogenic diet (fat and protein) are satiating, keeping you full for hours at a time. However, for others, snacking is a way of life, and as humans, we occasionally (ha) get cravings. I’ve been there…bored at your desk at work, watching a movie and wanting something to munch on, just in between meals, riding the crimson wave...sometimes you just need a little somethin somethin. So, what can you eat?Read More
So you like to eat breakfast? You don't say! I must admit...I have never been one for breakfast. I think that probably stems from the fact that I'm not a morning person. It has to, because I looooove brunch, which occurs at a much more decent hour.
But apparently, breakfast is a thing. For those of you following a low carb diet (we all are, right?), here are a couple breakfast options to help your morning go by a little more quickly. Enjoy!Read More
If you're anything like me, you eat a lot of broccoli. It's so good for you, so easy to cook, and so friendly to your macros that you just can't help yourself. But let's admit it...we're all kind of sick of broccoli, right? It's not that it doesn't taste good, it's just that we have it all. the. time. But wait, before you banish broccoli to the back of your fridge (or freezer) for good, try this recipe. It'll help you fall back in love with one of your trusty dinner sidekicks all over again.Read More
Ok, I call it basic, but it’s so delicious that I really feel like I’m doing it a disservice. I guess I use the term “basic” because there are so many different chicken salads you can make — buffalo, curry, chipotle, etc. — and this one is the “base” recipe. But don’t worry, it’s anything but boring!Read More
By now, you've probably heard about bulletproof coffee. It's popping up everywhere, with devotees singing its praises from movie sets to boardrooms. But, if you hear "bulletproof" and nothing comes to mind besides vests and windows at sketchy Chinese food spots, allow me to introduce you to the latest craze.
What is Bulletproof Coffee?
Bulletproof coffee, developed by biohacker Dave Asprey, is basically a cup of coffee blended with grass-fed butter and coconut or medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil, traditionally drank in the morning, often as a meal replacement. I know what you're thinking: "Butter in coffee? Gross." That's generally the first reaction, with the second being, "that cannot possibly be healthy." However, you may be wrong on both points. Here's why.Read More
