As many may know my husband, Mr. LowCarb, is a type 1 diabetic so this topic is very near and dear to my heart. In the low carb/keto/carnivore community we hear a lot about type 2 diabetes and reversing it through adopting a ketogenic way of life which is great and important to share and change the way the medical establishment treats T2D.

Since moving to more of a ketovore/carnivore way of eating I love being able to easily add protein in without adding carbs. Protein and animal fat are the backbone of the proper human diet. I wanted a satiating dessert that was packed full of protein! While watching one of Dr. Berry’s lives he mentioned pudding made from hardboiled eggs! I promise you I gagged a little at the thought and yet was intrigued enough to google it. I came across one from Two Krazy Ketos, which if you haven’t checked out their website be sure to do so, one from Maria Emmerich, and a couple more. Not finding one that was exactly to my liking I decided to piggyback off them all and make my own version. One called for coconut milk, but one of my kids does not care for coconut so that was out. Another called for fancy protein powders and I just wanted simple, so that one was out. Plus the thought of hardboiling and peeling all those eggs seemed daunting! I decided to give soft scrambled eggs a try and made half a batch just to test. I couldn’t believe I wasn’t eating a rich, sugar filled, delectable pudding! I made another half batch and my family gobbled it up! Continue reading “Ketovore Protein Pudding”→
My family and I have been living a ketogenic life for sometime now. In October of 2022 we decided to step it up a notch with the ultimate ketogenic way of life, the Ketovore/Carnivore way. We eat very few vegetables and are the healthier for it! No longer bloated or other issues that even keto didn’t seem to eleviate. We do eat some veggies from time to time, that are low in anti-nutrients, like green beans and asparagus. We also do not eat many nuts now due to inflamatory issues, which means a few of my earlier bread recipes no longer work for us. I am leaving them on the site because many love them and they do work for them. My kids were really missing bread and sandwhiches, especially for the days we were in town and they needed easy lunches.
So, of course I was on the hunt for a bread that mimiced white bread. We tried “wonder bread chaffles” and those worked fairly well. We tried oopsie bread, which we didn’t care for and seemed to crumble easy. I stumbled upon a couple bloggers with egg white bread recipes and they worked pretty good but with egg prices through the roof at $5/dozen for cheap store bought eggs having one loaf of bread requiring nearly a dozen egg whites didn’t seem like it was healthy for my pocketbook. Then others use egg white protein powder which turns out more like styrofoam and is expensive as well. I sought out to create my own recipe that was budget friendly, not difficult to make and that my kids would like. It took many trials and tweaks but I got it to where we all like it. It doesn’t always turn out pretty and the mixture is tempermental but it works and that is what matters. I found the way to combine egg whites from eggs, cartoned eggs whites, and egg white powder and this makes it pretty easy on the pocketbook. I hope you will like it too.

It seems like forever and a day since I have written an actual post! In truth it has been forever! The last three-ish years have brought all kinds of challenges and adventures which have unfortuneately taken me away from my keto blog writting! We have gone through Covid, longer tax seasons, a daughter graduating college, three more kids graduating highschool and the parties that went with them, moving to a new city, raising baby chicks into egg laying chickens, a son getting married and divorced, another son getting engaged and an upcoming wedding. So let’s just say life has been busy. My dad moved my website to a new host and is helping to keep it all spiffy so I can focus on content. Oh and I started a YouTube channel!
July 8th 2021 we closed on our new home in a small city and moved on July 19th 2021!
I am Shari and am the proud wife to my wonderful husband and proud mommy to our 8 kiddos. Having a big family is pretty great and interests are all over the place. There is never a dull moment in our home! My husband, aka Mr. Lowcarb, is a type 1 diabetic and if you have T1D or have a loved one that has it you know it is nothing easy to deal with and can cause a lot of health issues. In November of 2018 I started learning about Low Carb and how insulin and other hormones work together, I knew a lot before but always love to learn more and boy have I! This lead us to decide to give a new lifestyle change a try and after the results we have had so far we will never go back to the standard american diet(SAD)!
Since starting our low carb journey shortly before Thanksgiving of 2018, what a time to give up carbs!, I have been having loads of fun finding different recipes to try for my family and tweaking them along the way. After posting many pictures on Facebook of the deliciousness I was making I had several requests for the recipes which I happily share however it can be difficult to do on social media and as a result this blog is born. This is also doubling as a school project for my son. I hope you enjoy the foods you will see as well as other posts about low carb and our lives on it.
Please be patient as we learn how to work this blogging site and get things in order.
