Coconut Lime Coolers

Cool off with a low carb coconut lime cooler, a deliciously creamy tropical drink that's truly refreshing. They also make great cocktails!

But there really is something appealing about a tall glass filled with something cold and creamy and maybe a bit bubbly. When it’s that hot out and you can’t … Continue Reading

Slow Cooker Raspberry Coconut Cake

Low Carb Slow Cooker Coconut Cake with Raspberries and Dark Chocolate

A heavenly low carb, dairy-free cake cooked in your crock pot. Rich, tender and bursting with berries and coconut. Chocolate chips optional. One of the advantages of having moved out west is the closer proximity to my sister and her family. My "little" sister (in quotes because she is 4 inches taller than I am) followed in my footsteps long ago and went to the University of British Columbia. Unlike me, however, she was almost instantly a Vancouver lifer. She apparently didn't suffer from … Continue Reading

Chicken Fried Steak with Country Gravy – Primal Low Carb Kitchen Review

Low Carb Grain-Free Chicken Fried Steak Recipe with Sausage Gravy

Craving the ultimate low carb comfort food? Chicken Fried Steak goes from junky to healthy with a few easy tweaks.  It's always funny to compare my Canadian upbringing with that of my Yankee husband. On the one hand, things were not so very different on our opposing sides of the border. We spoke the same language, played the same games, watched the same TV shows and read the same books. And for the most part, ate the same foods. But then there are those things that one of us references … Continue Reading

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Avocados

Low Carb Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Avocados

Spicy, tangy buffalo chicken and bleu cheese piled into healthy avocados and baked to delicious perfection. Hearty enough to be your whole meal! So it would seem that instead of moving to Portland, Oregon, my husband and I accidentally moved to Southern California by mistake. I am not quite sure how one mistakes one whole state for another like that. I mean, we were certainly aiming for the Pacific NorthWest and our airplane tickets said PDX on them. Or at least I thought they did, but … Continue Reading
