One Day EXPLORING: CARTAGENA, SPAIN

Cartagena is a beautiful ancient Mediterranean port city on the southeastern coast of Spain.  It is a natural harbor with hills, mountains, and mines of silver, zinc, and lead.  And as I quickly discovered, there is so much more than tapas, paella, and sangria in Cartagena.  Although they do have great sangria, they also have […]

KETO Margarita

Labor day weekend just past recently. As always, it’s a traditional end-of-summer party. A perfect time to cook out and enjoy a cold drink – especially here in Texas where we’re still above 100. I’m a tequila guy. My favorite is Patron Anejo for sipping. My go-to party drink is a margarita. I’ve had a […]

guacamole & The keto diet

The Keto diet is much more than just cutting carbs. The goal is to switch your body from using sugar in the form of carbs to using fat as its main fuel source. The only way to do this is to make sure you get 70-80% of your calories from fat. If you consume too […]

Ok, so its not really rice. And, I’m not sure yet if its a miracle. But, I’m going to discuss it with you. My Keto coach told me about this product at dinner the other night. So, I ordered some from Amazon and got it yesterday. I got a box of rice and a box […]

Jalapeno chicken bacon poppers

We had some friends over for game night Saturday and I wanted to come up with a new snack. I had had some poppers at the Oasis last weekend and wanted to see if I could recreate them. They turned out really great – Jalapeno slices and cream cheese wrapped in chicken wrapped in Bacon. […]

Jerky is a great food whether you are doing a Keto diet or not. Its portable protein with big flavor. On the go and need a snack? Protein is always better for you than sugar or carbs. You can buy jerky everywhere these days. Just visit a Bass Pro shop and you will find dozens […]

Chopped Beef & Keto Biscuit

I took part of my brisket and made chopped beef with it. What I needed to eat the chopped beef was something to mop up all the great sauce. I used to use bread or tortillas, but they’re not keto. My new go to is a Keto Biscuit. I found a great keto biscuit recipe. […]
