INGREDIENTS: Mineral Rich Kelp Noodles (see picture below) 1 Medium Onion , sliced or diced 3 Cloves Garlic , minced 1 Large Carrot , sliced into coins 2 Cups of Green Beans, chopped (Add in or substitute other low-glycemic vegetables of your choice) 1 T.

Keto Flex Recipe: Collard Leaf Wraps (Snack)

These are tasty and really really really easy to put together Collard Sprout Wraps. I  stuffed the wraps with Broccoli Sprouts (low carb, high in liver-supporting sulfur compounds) but if you aren't into sprouting, you can use broccoli slaw (sold in bags). INGREDIENTS:  Collard Leaves ( I removed the tough spine and tore into small pieces for wraps that were about two bites worth) 1- 2  C.  Broccoli Sprouts 1/4 to 1/2 C. Tahini Juice from 1 Lime 1- 2 Garlic Cloves (or powder) Mince the garlic, if using, and add it and the lime to the Tahini, mixing until pretty much homogenous. You can add the sauce to the sprouts and mix, or use it as a sort of dipping sauce for the rolls.  I mixed them all up together, and rolled it up into the little collard pieces.  It was yummy and satisfying.

Ketoflex Recipe: Chocolate-Coconut-Peanut Butter-Blackberry Shake

This very densely nutritious (i.e.,fills you up) Ketoflex shake is a combined recipe of the breakfast smoothie that I generally have every morning thanks to Chris Wark's anti-cancer regimen, and the keto ingredients (coconut milk, cacao, and peanut butter). I am satisfied that Chris Wark's recipe is low-carb enough and high fibre enough to be a good fit for this superfood shake / smoothie.  At the time I write this I am still struggling with the fat adapting part of this diet.  The original recipe did not have any fruit or berries in it and tasted quite flat and a little bitter.   So, I tweaked it with Chris Wark's recipe and with a cup of frozen blackberries from my fridge. If you are already using a ketogenic way of eating, you will know that you can work out your own fats+ proteins+ carbs ratio that fits for you.  If you are not on a vegan ketogenic diet, you can go to the tab above and click on My Ketoflex Recipes and read a little about what they are

Ketoflex Recipe: Curry Cauliflower Rice Soup - Vegan -

Today we were taking turmeric and honey every hour (half a spoon full of a 5 T. honey/2 T. Tumeric mix) to build our immunity.  This wonderful immunity soup (curry is packed with those wonderful Indian herbs like turmeric and cumin with their medicinal benefits just slightly overshadowed by their warm electric flavours) seemed like a natural supper dish! This one of those warming soups-- I am not a big fan of HOT curry, but I love a mild curry that is kind of like coming in from a frigid walk in the winter and putting your feet up on the oven door (somehow can't believe we used to do that). The original recipe gave options for the oil used.  I chose coconut oil, since there is also coconut milk in here, and it seemed like a good idea to carry through with the "tropical" theme. I also subbed baby spinach for the kale that it called for.  It is a very light and lithesome soup.  It is the kind of soup I like to sip when I am feeling not quite 100%. But apart from t

Ketoflex Recipe: Breakfast Bowl Deluxe

We are a big oatmeal-eating family so naturally we checked out to see where oatmeal falls in a ketogenic diet .... and YAY, a "moderate" amount of oatmeal is okay!  We are not quite sure what moderate IS, so we also loaded the bowl up with bonafide ketoflex fruits and fats (no refined sugars).  These are low-glycemic fruits.  Lilly's chocolate chips are sweetened with Stevia.  If you feel guilty about this not being terribly strict, you can look at it as a transitional dish ! It's all good! So, to make a bowl like this, you can organize the following: soup ladel scoop of Steel-cut Oats , well cooked with some added coconut shreds Lilly's Dark Chocolate Chips (they melt on the hot porridge... yum) Fill up rest of space with a foundation of Coconut Yogurt (NOT dairy-- soy or almond yogurt are also fine.  Choose un-sweetened or sweetened with Stevia is okay Dried Apricots , unsweetened, unsulphured (these are Turkish), chopped and briefly soaked in hot
