Is Keto difficult to maintain at a super bowl party?

Do you like bacon? Do you like veggies? Do you like mayo? What about garlic parmessan brussel sprouts?

Or are you a sweets eater and can’t fathom giving up sugar? Are brownies your weakness or is it the cookies?

What are you having for your super bowl party? How about air fryer chicken wings? Maybe buffalo chicken dip? Or maybe just a veggie platter with some garlic and herb cream cheese? Or Keto Bang Bang Shrimp? This is one of my favorites.

Check out some of our favorite recipes to prepare for your Super Bowl party.

The Best 90 Second Keto Bread

The Best 90 Second Keto Bread (Not Eggy)

  • Servings: 3
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons golden flaxseed meal
  • 2 tablespoons whey protein isolate
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2-5 teaspoons erythritol or swerve to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream or heavy cream
  • Special Equipment
  • microwave-safe mold or ramekin

Directions

  1. Add almond flour, flaxseed meal, whey protein, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt to a medium bowl. Whisk until thoroughly combined, set aside. Note: feel free to make the flour mix ahead in a large batch and simply measure out 1/2 cup + 6 Tablespoons per bread.
  2. Add egg and sweetener to a large bowl and beat with a whisk or electric mixer for 1 minute or two until airy and lighter in color. With the mixer on, add in the apple cider vinegar and butter.
  3. Add in the dry flour mixture in two parts, alternating with the sour cream. Continue to mix for a minutes until fully incorporated and elastic, the batter will thicken as you mix (think almost cookie dough texture).
  4. Transfer the batter to a microwave-safe dish or mold (use either a large one or divided into 3 ramekins), pressing down and smoothing out the top with a wet fingertip.
  5. If you divide the dough in 3 you’ll cook the bread for 90 seconds on high, but if you cook it all together you’ll want to do 150 seconds (2-1/2 minutes). Time can vary a lot in the microwaves, but to give you an idea mine is 1000 watts. Either way, it’ll come out looking pale and spongy (and not very appetizing at all). But worry not, just wait for it to cool down until just lightly warm (it continues to cook as it cools). Then you’ll definitely want to give it a good toast to get some texture on.
  6. Store in an airtight container for 2-3 days or in the freezer for a couple months. Serve warm with a pat of butter.

Do you believe

When you make the decision to start on this low carb keto lifestyle – do you believe that you can get to that ultimate goal? Or are you doing it just for others?

What is your mindset? I’ve been studying about mindset and thoughts and did you know “You are what you think”?

If you are constantly on a “diet” or trying to “lose weight” then you will constantly be on a diet and trying to lose weight. Change your mindset to the positive and say “I am at my perfect weight”. Stop being on a diet which is negative and temporary. Live a lifestyle which is positive and permanent.

Close your eyes and see you in your perfect body! It doesn’t matter if you have 10 pounds to lose or 100 pounds to lose. See you in your perfect body and believe you are already there. Believing is half the battle.

If it helps get a picture of you when you were at what you thought was the perfect weight and you were happy there, put it on the mirror in the bathroom and look at it every day. See yourself in that perfect body.

It isn’t only food that makes us gain weight. It can be our beliefs that hold us there. Belief that “it is hard to lose weight after having a baby” or “as I age I get that middle aged spread” or maybe it’s “everyone in my family is big boned and heavy”. Those are all negative thoughts and you will never lose weight if you don’t change your mindset.

So let’s take a look at our mindset and then make it a habit to see yourself in your perfect body. Maybe you just repeat it over and over again in your mind or you thank God or the universe for having that perfect body. See it and believe it has already happened.

If you struggle with this concept – read or listen to the book “The Secret” by Rachel Byrne.

We are always here to help if you struggle with mindset. Have a happy and blessed week.

Sugar Free at it's best


Ingredients

    Shortbread Crust
  • 2-1/2 cups Almond Flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered Swerve
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 large egg (whisked)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Lemon Filling
  • 1/3 cup powdered Swerve (or Monk Fruit)
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 3/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9×9 pan with parchment paper, hanging over the sides.
  2. Make the filling first, because it must be ready to go immediately when the crust comes out of the oven. In a medium bowl, stir together almond flour and powdered sweetener.
  3. Whisk in the eggs, lemon juice and lemon zest, until smooth. Set aside.
  4. To make the crust, combine the almond flour, sweetener and sea salt in a large bowl.
  5. Stir in the melted coconut oil, then the egg and vanilla. The dough will be crumbly, but able to be pressed together.
  6. Press the dough into the lined pan. Bake for about 13 to 16 minutes, until firm and golden.
  7. Remove the crust from the oven, and immediately pour the filling over the crust.
  8. Return to the oven for 15 to 18 minutes, until filling is set, but still soft.
  9. Cool completely on the counter, without moving or cutting. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before slicing.

What Does it Take to Get Started?

Have you ever made a decision one day to do something the next? Like get started on a low carb keto lifestyle? or maybe you want to write a book? or maybe you want to start saving for a new car?

Do you know what it takes to get started?

Most of us think that we have to be motivated to start or have everything lined up perfectly so we can assure we will be successful. Did you know all you have to do is START! Take one step toward whatever your goal is.

According to Mel Robbins – Motivation is Garbage – we are just one step away from being successful or having the perfect body or getting that new car!!!!

If you have issues with starting – just do what Mel does and 5-4-3-2-1 GO. With living a Low Carb Keto Lifestyle – that may be just going to the pantry and donating all the high carb items you find there. What a way to start! Now you will be forced to eat fresh foods!

Before you go out to dinner – take a look at the menu of the restaurant you are going to and decide ahead of time what you will get to eat and then don’t even look at the menu when you get there.

Take one small step at a time. It didn’t take you 5 minutes to put on all the extra pounds so don’t get frustrated when it takes more than 5 minutes to take them off.

Also you can think how your new body will look! And think about that instead of the negative side of being on a diet. That is why we call this a lifestyle. We want everything to be positive.

Set small goals – lower the number of carbs you eat in a meal. Maybe get rid of the pasta first, then the next day get rid of the potatoes. Or maybe it is easier for you to get rid of the sweets first. JUST DO SOMETHING!!!!

Stop being a procrastinator which is a habit – by the way – you cannot be labeled a procrastinator – you just have that habit. So stop that habit. 5-4-3-2-1 whatever you want to do and JUST DO IT!
