Sweet Potato Tots

When it’s leptin reset day (usually a Saturday), I go all out. That means sweet potato everything, really. I’ve already posted about our sweet potato pancake adventures. Here’s my take on sweet potato tots, based on this muse recipe. I made some changes, adding a shredded cheese blend I had on hand as well as… Continue reading Sweet Potato Tots

Daniel’s Paleo Sweet Potato Pancakes

I write blog posts in advance, often on the weekends when I have time to both leptin reset as well as develop recipes. A couple days ago, I had posted a recipe for Paleo Sweet Potato Pancakes but it still wasn’t perfect, as the texture was still souflee-like– that post was the result from an… Continue reading Daniel’s Paleo Sweet Potato Pancakes

Paleo Sweet Potato Pancakes, recipe in progress

When I’m doing my leptin reset days once a week or so, I try to eat sweet potato pancakes, first chance I get. We found this muse recipe but added psyllium husk powder to it, as the recipe as written needed something to cohere the pancake together.

I like to reset my leptin and insulin sensitivities at least once a week as part of my cyclical ketogenic diet. For that, I love using this recipe. The only problem is that it… Continue reading Easy Gluten-Free Burger Buns

Quick Curried Cauliflower Rice

Whenever I want a quick low carb vegetable side dish, I can always depend on my curried cauliflower rice. All you need for this recipe is a food processor and no time at all! The key is garam masala and coconut oil. Even though garam masala has tumeric in it, I add a bit more… Continue reading Quick Curried Cauliflower Rice

Spicy Salmon Poke Bowl

In case you couldn’t already tell, I love salmon. Why? It’s high in omega-3 fat. Also, it doesn’t have mercury in it the way tuna does. I have already shown how I prepare it most of the time. But I get bored easily. Why not try having salmon raw? But if it’s a low carb… Continue reading Spicy Salmon Poke Bowl
