3-Ingredient Low Carb Crackers

Since cutting most carbohydrates out of my diet this year, I’ve been slowly learning how to make Keto-friendly versions of my favorite foods. Crunchy, crispy crackers (say that 3 times fast) were something I’d been missing to pair with high-fat dips and cheeses. Instead of trying to pretend that sliced radishes were, in fact, potato chips, I decided to tackle making these almond flour crackers instead.

Okay So What Is the Keto Diet?

Is the Keto Diet the Answer We've All Been Waiting For? | This Miss Cooks

With all the buzz lately around the Ketogenic Diet, I figured it was a good time to share the lifestyle experiment I’ve been doing. Since the first of the month, Mr Never Cooks and I have been following a high-fat, low-carb diet — or HFLC if we want to start digging into the lingo (and there is so much of it).

Sunday Recap from a Week of Easy Healthy Dinners

Moving, it turns out, is one of the most awful experiences that I’ve happily run headlong into. I now understand how my parents have lived in the same house for 35 years and I get why we couldn’t move to someplace nice like Minnesota or Maine (I was a boring child I think).

Orange & Fig Avocado Toast

I’ve been increasing my mileage for marathon training (finally) and one of the habits I’ve been trying to pick up is eating before a morning run. I’m usually an empty-stomach-maybe-some-coffee runner, so it’s been challenging to find something I enjoy eating beforehand. Which, by the way, is the only time you’ll EVER hear me say the words ‘I’m having a hard time eating more food.’

Peanut Butter & Apple Overnight Oats Recipe

Peanut Butter & Apple Overnight Oats | This Miss Cooks

Enter: The Overnight Oat Experience.

You all might have noticed a…trend, shall we say, in my recipes. Can you even call it a trend when all you want to eat 24/7 is variations of the same meal? I feel like there are more accurate terms here, like obsession or craze or infatuation or having a bee in one’s bonnet (okay, I admit to using a thesaurus for that last one but I love it so it stays).  Continue reading
