Low carb comfort food that is Paleo/Keto and Whole30 compliant. Instead of cornstarch you will be using arrowroot and non dairy yogurt to thicken your gravy.

Course: dinner
Keyword: cauliflower puree, gravy, keto, meatballs, Paleo, whole30
Servings: 4 servings
Author: Linda Spiker
Ingredients
  • 8 cups cauliflower, stem removed and broken into florets
  • 2 tablespoons ghee (or butter)
  • 20 ounces ground turkey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3 tablespoons chives, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder (for thickening gravy)
  • 4 tablespoons non dairy plain yogurt (I use cashew or coconut yogurt)
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. For Cauliflower

  2. Wash cauliflower, cut off stem and break into florets, steam until soft. When cauliflower is soft. Place half the cooked cauliflower into a food processor with 1 tablespoon ghee (or butter) and a couple pinches of sea salt and black pepper, blend until smooth (you can also use a potato masher and do it by hand) Repeat with second batch.

  3. While cauliflower is steaming, make meatballs

  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Place ground turkey, egg, and almond meal in a bowl, work with hands until well blended. Add spices, 2 tablespoons chives and two generous pinches sea salt and black pepper, work with hands until mixed well

  5. Using wet hands form into 1 1/2" meatballs 

  6. In a large pan over medium heat, warm 2 tablespoons olive oil until hot but not smoking. Add the meatballs and cook, turning once, until golden brown but not yet cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes total. Turn off heat (do not clean the pan) Transfer to oven safe baking dish and place in oven for 5 minutes (or until cooked through)

  7. Place 2 tablespoon swarm water in a small bowl, add 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder and whisk until smooth (this is called a slurry and will thicken your gravy). Set aside. 

  8. Return the pan used for the meatballs to high heat: Whisk in the chicken stock scraping browned bits off bottom of pan, bring broth to a boil. Once you have achieved a boil, turn off heat. Add the slurry, whisking vigorously. Return to low heat, allow 2 to 3 minutes for gravy to thicken (do not allow to boil. When gravy is desired consistency gradually add the non-dairy yogurt,  1 tablespoon at a time, whisking between additions until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. When the meatballs are cooked through, remove from oven and place in gravy pan.

  9. Place pureed cauliflower on plates, top with meatballs and gravy, garnish with remaining chives (If desired, drizzle some melted ghee over potatoes)

Pomegranate Lime Non-Alcoholic Spritzer

I have decided to save America’s livers, one “mocktail” at a time. That’s right, you can enjoy your holiday parties, wake up the next morning feeling great and look festive while doing it thanks to this¬†Pomegranate Lime Non-Alcoholic Spritzer!

Pomegranate Lime Non-Alcoholic Spritzer #mocktail #lowcarb #spritzer #pomegranate

Let’s Muddle Things Up!

This drink is a favorite anytime we want something a little more celebratory than plain old water. To make it you’ll need a¬†muddle.¬†A muddle is a bartenders tool used to crush ingredients, in this case, limes.

Pomegranate Lime Non-Alcoholic Spritzer #mocktail #lowcarb #spritzer #pomegranate

SIMPLE SYRUP OR NATURALLY SUGAR FREE STEVIA OPTION:

You can sweeten this drink with a simple syrup made ahead of time, or with liquid Stevia drops. It’s fantastically delicious both ways!

Pomegranate Lime Non-Alcoholic Spritzer #mocktail #lowcarb #spritzer #pomegranate

The Recipe: Pomegranate Lime Non-Alcoholic Spritzer

Tips and what you’ll need: When we serve this for parties we set out lime wedges and lime halves, a hand held juicer, a¬†muddle, simple syrup and¬†Stevia drops¬†along with a recipe card with instructions so our guests can make their own spritzer. I prefer to use Pellegrino sparkling water because of it’s alkaline ph balance. Find my Lemon Basil Spritzer here.

Pomegranate Lime Non-Alcoholic Spritzer
Prep Time
5 mins
 

A simple mocktail with a simple syrup or low carb stevia sweetened option. If making the simple syrup, be sure to make it at least an hour ahead of time so it has time to cool and then refrigerate. When having a party, we set out all the prepped ingredients with a recipe card so guests can make their own spritzers.

Course: drink
Keyword: holidaydrink, mocktail, nonalcoholic, spritzer
Servings: 1 erving
Author: Linda Spiker
Ingredients
  • If Making Simple Syrup:
  • 1 cup organic granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons simple syrup OR 3-4 drops liquid stevia
  • 2 lime wedges
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoon pomegranate juice
  • 3/4 cup ice cold sparkling water (I like Pellegrino)
  • ice
Instructions
  1. If using simple syrup, make ahead of time and allow to cool: place water and sugar in a pot and bring to a boil, lower and simmer for 6 minutes. Allow to cool. If using liquid stevia, skip this step

  2.  To make drink: place 2 lime wedges in bottom of glass, muddle (this means smash with your muddling tool)

  3. Add lime juice, pomegranate juice and either simple syrup or stevia drops, and muddle more. Then pour sparkling water into glass.

  4. If desired, add ice,  pomegranate seeds or an additional lime wedge to edge of glass. Serve.

The Breakfast in Bed Series!

You may remember our master bedroom makeover. The¬†comfy mattress, romantic atmosphere and chill vibe were the inspiration for a¬†breakfast in bed recipe series.¬†So far in this series we’ve made Cheesy Popovers with Chive Butter and Paleo/Whole 30 Eggs Benedict!¬†Now it’s on to warm, flavorful, nourishing Huevos Rancheros!

Whole 30/Paleo/Keto Huevos Rancheros!

So How Do I Make Huevos Rancheros Paleo, Whole 30 and Keto Friendly?

Zucchini, that’s how! Instead of using a tortilla as a base I use a delicious and easy to make zucchini fritter. Then I top it with a fried egg and serve with my fresh pico de gallo. It’s a great way to work more veggies into your morning meal. And just look at that crispy fritter under that cute heart shaped egg. I offer two choices for the fritter: you can grate your own zucchini or if you want to make this meal even easier, use store bought spiraled zucchini and just give it a rough chop!

Paleo-Whole 30-Keto Huevos Rancheros!

Make Your Own Guacamole and Pico de Gallo…or Don’t!

When it comes to food my motto is “make it from scratch unless it’s just as good and just as healthy store bought”. So if you have a local grocery store that carries delicious Pico de Gallo and fresh guacamole, go for it. If not, you can make mine <— easy recipes
