So, I’ve been asked and I think it’s a great idea: this blog title is the one to go to for sharing recipes! I have shared with you my tasty almond bread previously, but I would love to hear from some of you! Sooo, post those healthy low-carb/Paleo/Primal recipes here!
I look forward to trying them out!
Have a healthy day!

Great idea! Thanks Rachel!
Almond Flour Muffins (low in carbs; no sugar)
2 1/2 cups almond flour (Honeyville brand is the best)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup honey
3 large eggs
1 tbs vanilla
1 cup fruit/nuts/coconut/carrots…whatever
stir together flour, salt and baking soda. Add beaten eggs, honey and vanilla. Stir or whisk together till well blended. Add 1 cup fruit, fresh or frozen, mixed or not.
I’ve used the frozen “smoothie” mixtures from Kroger or mixed 1/2 cup banana with 1/2 cup strawberries and added some nuts; or this weekend I made carrot, raisin, apple muffins…about 3/4 cup of shredded apples & carrots with 1/4 cup of raisins.
Recipe says bake at 300 for 25-30 minutes or so. I bake mine at 325 for 35 minutes but it depends on your oven.
Thanks Mom! These sound yummy! I’ll have to try them out this weekend!
Here is a recipe for a low-carb deep-dish pizza that I found a lot of positive reviews on. Haven’t tried it yet, but will make it maybe tomorrow and update!
3-6 eggs (most people have said the 3 or 4 egg version is the best)
6 oz. cream cheese (3/4 of the package) at room temp.
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp. oregano or other Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. sea salt
couple pinches of black pepper
1 c (or more) shredded cheese of your choice (make sure about half is hard cheese like asiago or parm.)
Heat oven to 350 degrees
Make sure cream cheese is room temp.
Blend eggs and cream cheese with blender or food processor until well-blended
Add sea salt and spices and blend again
Butter a 9×13 pan (or whatever pan you can) very well
Spread cheese in bottom
Pour egg mix over the cheese and bake for 20-25 mins. or until top is browning
Remove from oven
Add pizza toppings of your choice
Bake another 10-15 mins. or until done
