This is definately a must try!
Low Carb Creamy Green Bean Casserole
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 2 servings
1 cup of cooked cut green beans
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 ounces cream cheese
1-1/2 teaspoons dried onions
1 tablespoon gluten free soy sauce
Freshly ground pepper
1-1/2 ounces shredded mild cheddar
Drain the green beans well and pat dry with paper towels. Too much liquid on the beans will thin the sauce.
Place the heavy cream and cream cheese in a pan over medium heat.
Whisk until the cream cheese softens and the sauce is smooth.
Add the dried onions and soy sauce.
Continue to stir until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon.
Add the green beans and simmer, stirring often, about 5 minutes.
Sauce will be very thick and cling to the green beans. If not continue to simmer and stir.
Taste and add pepper as needed.
Place the green beans in 2 individual cast iron casseroles OR a small, heat proof dish.
Sprinkle with cheese.
Broil, watching carefully, until the cheese bubbles and turns golden.
If you don't drain the green beans and pat them dry they will add liquid to the sauce and it will be runny.

This Mexican girl craves all of the Mexican food! Unfortunately, beans, rice and tortillas are not #ketofriendly . But you know what is? Chile Verde! Topped with avocado 🥑, cheese🧀, and sour cream! It's a total meal and so keto friendly!
#onepotmeal , #healthyfats
Chile Verde (makes 6 servings)🌶🍅🥑🥓 4 lbs Diced pork with fat attached (I used loin)
8 fresh tomatillo -peeled, whole
10 whole cloves garlic
3 chunked Jalepeno
2 oz bacon grease
1/4 c. Cilantro
1/2 whole chopped onion
1 can rotel diced tomatoes and peppers
1 cup water
In a large pot add bacon grease and pork to saute until just browned. Add water, then throw fresh veggies in whole or cut up, they'll cook down and fall apart on their own. I cooked on stovetop, on low, covered for about 2-3 hours. The meat is so tender and all the flavors blend together so well. Add s & p to taste.
Serve with sliced avocado, cheese and sour cream!

Don't overwhelm yourself with complicated dishes this holiday...there are plenty of easy (and healthy) recipes out there for you like these Prune, Yam, and Brie Crostini from @sunsweetgrowersinc . Instead of toasted bread, this tasty app uses yams as the base and then is topped with creamy brie cheese, yummy prunes, and fragrant fresh basil. This recipe is done from start to finish in 30 minutes and only a few ingredients – recipe here👇•
2 lbs yams (about 2" diameter)
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
Freshly ground sea salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup Sunsweet® Pitted Amaz!n™ Prunes, coarsely chopped
1 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar
3 oz brie cheese, sliced 1/8" thick
3 Tbsp chopped walnuts, toasted
Fresh basil, snipped
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with foil. Peel yams and cut into 1/2" thick slices. Spread 2 Tbsp oil on foil, place yams on top. Turn once or twice to coat both sides with oil, then season with salt and pepper. Roast for 15 minutes; turn slices over and roast for 10 minutes more or until lightly browned and soft.
While yams are cooking, stir together prunes, remaining oil and vinegar in small bowl.
Top warm yams with equal amounts of cheese and prune mixture. Roast for 2 minutes more or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with walnuts and basil.

So, you come here for food and I'm talking to you about fasting? Well, I just thought I would share a little bit of myself with you guys. It's been a very ROUGH year healthwise - from heart disease to chronic pain & diabetes. Intermittent fasting (IF) has been one of the tools I have been using to bounce back. After the diabetes diagnosis (which I plan to reverse by February), my diet also has very strong keto leanings. I say keto leanings, because I am not hardcore or 100% keto and probably never will be. I love beans and other legumes WAY too much. It's also not easy to be 100% keto when you cook and I am not ready to be a keto chef.
If you haven't heard of IF, it is basically having an eating window of 8 hrs or less. This means you fast for 16hrs or more each day. Fasting for 16 hours or more activates AUTOPHAGY (Google it), which gets rid of the old, useless, sick cells and renews your cells, heart, brain, stem cells etc. It also boosts your human growth hormone and glutathione levels. There is a lot of information on intermittent fasting and autophagy available online and it is based on real science.
How has it helped me?
The first thing I noticed was that I no longer needed pain killers, which I was living on. This happened within the first week. The angina (chest pain), which was a daily occurrence is also pretty much gone. I get a twinge every now and then. I can walk without limping and even run up and down NYC subway stairs. At one point, I couldn't walk 2 blocks. My blood pressure is the best it has been in years (even on meds). Complications from diabetes have been severely reduced and my goal is to reverse it by February. Of course, I have also lost weight, which is a nice, healthy bonus.
This is just a summary to encourage some of you who may be going through similar struggles. Keep fighting. Do your research and find what works for you. Doctors are great, but do not rely on them to save your life. You have to be proactive and put in the work. Most doctors rely on outdated (or Big Pharma sponsored) information to treat chronic and life-threatening diseases.

Easy and delicious dinner. Idk what to call it but it’s good.
Green Bell Pepper
In a pan, add chorizo. After it is cooked you then add the beef. Stir it and add salt and garlic powder.
Once browned, add franks. Let them cook for about 5-7 minutes. Once they are nicely browned, add bell peppers, onions and jalapeños. At the very end, add the tomatoes.
I served it work a quick side salad. 🥬

“Mommy, take a picture of me eating my carrots so people can see I make healthy snack choices!” 😍🥕😋
Today’s #TransformationTuesday post is dedicated to my daughter’s ongoing transformation from “cute little girl” to “cute little girl who kicks a$$” 👧💪🥋
So grateful for her time spent at @chicagomartialarts, which showed her she has the strength and power to achieve amazing things if she works hard enough. Getting her yellow belt was a proud moment, but even more important is the mental strength, focus and balance she has since been able to apply to other aspects of her life. 🙌
Swipe right 👉 for snippets of her promotion test, including board breaks (+ her first ever attempt at 3yo) and stability (+ the first time she ever tried to balance on one foot!) 👈 #progress
Keep swiping ➡️ for hilarious snapshots of the cutest little ninja warrior I’ve ever seen- a little too cute to be wielding weapons convincingly, methinks! 😂💪
When my girl was 5, she got frustrated with a particular task she was trying to accomplish so I said to her, “You know, you can be good at everything you do, as long as you always work hard and try hard.” Meant as an obvious means of encouragement that I didn’t expect her to fully understand, she turned to me and said, “Really?? Thank you for telling me that, Mommy. I would never have known!” 🥰
May she forever continue to believe in this concept, and always apply aspects of physical and mental strength, work ethic, resilience and perseverance in her daily life 💝

🔢Nutrition facts per 2 pancakes:
Macros: F19.9g, P11.2g, C3.9g (2.4g net)
⏱Prep Time:3 minutes
Cook time: 2 minutes
Total time: 5 minutes —————
1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp almond flour (60g) 1/2 cup full fat cream cheese (125g) 4 eggs 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp granulated sweetener (optional) Butter for frying
1️⃣ Mix all ingredients in a blender.
2️⃣Fry pancakes in melted butter in a non-stick pan over a medium heat. Turn over once the centre begins to bubble. The pancakes should be smallish, 4 inched in diameter. About the right size to fit them in the toaster the next day should you be so lucky to have any leftovers
🤷♂️❄️Can you freeze them?
Absolutely! To avoid the pancakes sticking together, stack them by placing pieces of parchment paper between each pancake. You can defrost them on the kitchen counter, in the microwave or even stick them in your toaster. See? This is where their smaller size really comes in handy.
