Keto/Low Carb Everything Bagel Cheesebuns

#cheesebuns have become a low carb substitution for several carb-filled foods, such as hot dog/burger/sandwich buns, pizza dough, hot pockets, lasagna noodles, and now…bagels. #versatile 3-ingredient, 30-second prep, low carb bagels. 🙌 . Topped with cream cheese and the wonderful "Everything But the Bagel" seasoning from @traderjoes. 😍 I baked them in my donut pan which not only keeps their shape, it results in a different texture due to perfectly even cooking. The best part? CRUNCHY OUTSIDES. 🤤 . 👉 Swipe 👉 to see my (screenshot-able) "Cheesebuns" recipe and macros card. Recipe makes 4 bagels, same as the cheesebuns. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #keto #lowcarb #food #recipes #ketoaf #foodporn #homemade #yum #instafood #picoftheday #mealoftheday #foodgasm #omad #onemealaday #if #intermittentfasting #fasting #foodie #extendedfasting #delicious #getinmybelly #bodybybacon #everythingbagel #traderjoes #bagels #ketobagels #cheeseisthenewbread #creamcheese

Ground Beef Jerky

I’m *still* getting requests for the ground beef jerky recipe my boyfriend made, and here it finally is! This recipe is the perfect balance of heat and flavor, and 👉especially👈 easy if you can use a jerky gun (scroll to see video). The recipe below is for every 1 pound of ground beef. The last time we did this, we made 5 pounds. (It didn’t last as long as you’d think. 😉)

Beef Quesadilla on CutDaCarb Wraps

😘😘 and thank yous to for sending me some of her low carb wraps/flat bread/tortillas to try! I’ve seen people do some amazingly inventive things with these wraps (she reposts them on her page) – and I still have plans for them – but I also have a huge soft spot for EASY. Especially when you spend the entire holiday weekend binge watching TV shows and all you really have time for is quesadillas between episodes…🤣

ⓣⓗⓔ ⓡⓔⓥⓘⓔⓦ

The nutrition information and ingredients are posted in the slides also, but each wrap is 9 net carbs. I was a little scared when I saw that number, but then I realized the only other low carb tortillas we’ve used were 6 net carbs, and were much thicker, for a much smaller area. These are over 9″ x 12″, therefor you get not only more of the wrap itself, but the quality/texture is so thin it crisps 👌beautifully👌. Very very crunchy and light when you fry it, soft and pliable if you don’t – and most importantly…IT TASTES GOOD. If you’ve ever tried to make a homemade tortilla, you will especially appreciate and wonder how she managed to get a really good quality tortilla to somehow be low carb. These are definitely the best low carb tortillas/wraps we’ve had.


Steak Jerky

Can one be “in love”…with a food? My boyfriend got a dehydrator for his birthday from his amazing Mom and he made two types of jerky. This recipe is for the steak jerky, which is my latest OBSESSION. His favorite was the ground beef sticks (the red ones, recipe coming soon!). Talk about Christmas present ideas; a dehydrator is a FANTASTIC gift. The macros aren’t exact (are actually lower than shown) as marinade is lost in the process, it depends on thickness, number of slices, etc.

He changed a couple ingredients to make it keto (and spicy), but we used Alton Brown’s recipe here.

2¾ lbs top round roast
1 cup Worcestershire sauce
⅔ cup Soy Sauce
3 tsp ground black pepper
3 tsp onion powder
1½ tsp liquid smoke
2 tsp red pepper flakes
6oz chopped jalapenos in juice

Directions (with dehydrator):
In large bowl combine all ingredients except the steak.
Cut steak to desired size/thickness. (roughly ¼ inch thick, 1 inch wide made ≈100 pieces). Submerge jerky slices one by one into the marinade, transfer jerky and marinade to ziplock bag. Remove excess air, marinate for ≈10 hours in fridge, turning bag over half way through. (We keep the bag in a baking dish in case of leaking.) After 10 hrs, preheat oven to 375°F. Place slices on a cookie sheet (touching is ok, not overlapping). Bake 10 mins to ensure meat reaches 160°F internally. Place slices (not overlapping) on dehydrator shelves, sprinkle additional red pepper flakes, set to 160°F for ≈4 hours depending on thickness.

Macros & Pricing:
Based on the products we used, the cost of these ingredients will be $16.60 and make ≈100 servings. Serving size: 1 piece
