Low Carb Garlic Herb Shoestring Jicama Fries

The most popular post on my site on a consistent basis is the recipe for my Low Carb Seasoned Jicama Fries. They’re one of my favorites to make and are a hit with readers on here too, but have a bit of a kick to them with the spice blend I used. This new recipe gives you the same great, crispy fry feel and flavor but with a garlic herb seasoning mix instead.

Low Carb Loaded Cauliflower Mash (Keto)

I took a poll of some of my family recently of their favorite dish at Christmas time. Mine was always the twice baked potatoes my Mom or Aunt would make. Pretty much everyone I polled gave the same answer is me. That's because they are a delicious masterpiece and I would eat an entire pan of them and nothing else if I could. Unfortunately, they are very much not paleo. For starters, they are made with boxed potatoes. Yes, you can use real potatoes, but huge holiday meals already take a ton of work so that shortcut is much easier. This year, I wanted to create a recipe that would give me the taste I missed from my favorite dish, would be a healthier option and would be easy to make.

Low Carb Crispy Seasoned Jicama Fries

Hands down, my favorite side to any meal at a restaurant is french fries. I equate biting down into warm, crunchy french fries to biting into a small piece of heaven. That bit of heaven though is almost always fried in bad oils, involves eating a sh*t ton of carbs and can just generally make me feel slightly greasy and gross. My solution to this has been making lower carb alternatives at home, that are just as crunchy and just as, if not more, flavorful.

Maple Balsamic Roasted Veggies (Vegan, Refined Sugar Free)

I've decided to start running again. Actually running. In fact, I signed up to run the Shamrock Shuffle next year in Chicago. This will be my first organized run since completing the Rock n' Roll Challenge in 2015. I'm nervous. It's not that I don't think I can finish, because I know I can.

Whole30 Tangy Coleslaw

4th of July is prime BBQ time. When it comes to barbeques and summer parties, I think the sides can really make the meal. One of my favorite sides is coleslaw, but not your typical, creamy slaw. I like some tang in mine. This here is my favorite way to spruce up this side and I’m beyond thrilled, excited, honored and just about every other positive adjective, to share this recipe with you!

Whole30 Cauliflower Rice (Low Carb)

This past weekend felt mighty busy to me. I'm sure many of you can relate to the "nonstop, always on the go" feeling. While I didn't get to spend Easter Sunday with my family this year, I spent the past several days having an amazing time hanging with friends, shopping with my Mom for my upcoming Dominican vacation and watching the Detroit Tigers' OPENING DAY!
