One of my little sideline businesses is custom gift baskets and so I think about gift baskets a lot.
It has a mild laxative effect which can be very helpful and welcome on a low carb eating plan. I think that a good coconut oil would be one of the first things I would add to your carb free gift baskets. When I was browsing through Amazon looking for salt to buy for this article, I came across these other sea salts with amazing variations! While I have really worked hard to let go of sweet tasting things, every now and then I just want it. I like the Liquid Stevia drops because it’s easy to have sweetness control and they come in various flavors like Vanilla, Hazelnut and Chocolate. If I’m not making the sweet thing myself, then I like the convenience of a gourmet dark chocolate which is naturally low in carbs. My favorite is the 85% Dark Cocoa Lindt Chocolate, partly because it’s readily available where I live. I find the 90% is too bitter and the 70% cocoa is too sweet and just makes me want to eat the entire bar.
There’s something magical about the taste combination of chocolate and coffee together, don’t you think!? This chocolate fat bomb recipe takes flavor to a new height with the addition of a magic sugar free coffee liqueur flavor syrup that I found. The flavor is deeper and more intense than other chocolate fat bomb recipes that I have made before.
I just want to talk about the tools for a moment because having the right tools for the job saves both time and money.
If you don’t have a set of pyrex glass measuring cups put this on your birthday or Christmas wish list.
Measure Coconut oil, walnut butter, cocoa powder, coffee liqueur syrup, and sweetener into a glass measuring cup with pouring spout. For 2 of these Mocha Walnut Coffee Bites:  180 calories, 3 Total Carbs (1 net Carb), 21 g Fat, 3 g Protein. These chocolate fat bombs keep very well in the freezer in a zip lock bag and I would advise you to do that because they really do taste so good! Note 1: If you choose to use ground pork instead of the sausages, then you will need to add more seasonings. Scrambled Eggs and Sausage stuffing: Just saute some leftover gluten free stuffing in a green pan, add a couple eggs and scramble.


Gluten Free Sausage Stuffing Casserole:  Place 3 cups leftover sausage stuffing into a glass or silicone pan.
There is just so much misinformation out there when it comes to choosing a healthy cooking oil that I can understand how people are getting so confused!
Recently, I became aware of a new book written by Lisa Howard called The Big Book of Healthy Cooking Oils. Using this book you will find out which cooking oils are best for frying, what oils to use for baking and high heat and which oils should never, ever  be heated. You will also know what to do with the many new oils that are showing up on shelves these days. There is also a lot of good information about what to watch for in the supermarket when buying and proper storage at home.
Bottom line, if you want to know what are the most healthy cooking oils for each situation, this book is an invaluable reference. I highly recommend this book both as a reference book for the most healthy cooking oils and as a cookbook to learn how to use these oils. To learn about Lisa Howard, and get more great recipes be sure to check out her website at The Cultured Cook.
Not sure what it is with me and cream cheese jalapeno poppers lately but I seem to be on a real kick! I might also serve this over cauliflower puree for an even bigger bowl of creaminess when you just need that comfort food.
This is one seriously cheesy creamy dish that tastes an awful lot like those jalapeno poppers.
I may have called these babies muffins, but really they are personal sized Low Carb Cheesecakes! I mostly make gift baskets for kids but I also do a lot of gourmet gift baskets for Amazon. I love the way it tastes and keep in mind that some brands have a coconut taste and some do not.
And when I do, it’s usually something I make myself with good ingredients and I sweeten it with Stevia drops. For me the 85% dark cocoa is just right with just a hint of sweetness and the full rich dark flavor.
The addition of walnut butter makes it smooth and a walnut half garnish makes it crunchy and pretty!
For the silicon pans, I have bought the cheap ones from China and after a short while they harden and crack.


I especially liked the healthy cooking oils chart where you can see at a glance what the oil is, what heat can be tolerated, the type (saturated, nut, fruit, seed, tropical, animal fat), the origin of the oil and notes and suggestions about usage.
For those of us doing keto we would probably tweak some of them and even avoid the more starchy ones.
The love affair started when I did the Egg Fast and discovered just how yummy a cream cheese omelet with sriachi is.
The first time I made it was the bomb but I didn’t pay attention, I just threw it together. I was in Costco the other day and the sample lady was there giving out those yummy cream cheese jalapeno poppers. I imagined that an omelet stuffed with cream cheese and jalapeno would taste pretty darn good. In fact, this just might be my new favorite low carb breakfast dish!  This is also a great Egg Fast Transition dish for those of you doing the Egg Fast. I was thinking about what I as a long time low carber would would like to see in a low carb gift basket if I was lucky enough to get one! And most important, it satisfies that chocolate craving yet doesn’t make me want to devour the whole thing. But I still got lots of great ideas from the book and plan to ketosize a few of these recipes, so watch for them in a future blog post!
Then, for transitioning off egg fast I came up with this Cream Cheese Jalapeno Poppers Omelet.
I was staring at a rotisserie chicken sitting in my fridge the other day and just went for it.
It was so good my son and I fought over the last portion so I knew I had to share it on my blog. On a low carb diet, electrolyte balance is important and plenty of sea salt definitely helps with this. I keep a little container of pink salt chunks around because I sometimes suffer from leg cramps.
