KETO PIZZA w/ Chicken Cauliflower

Kitchen Equipment:

Cheese grater, Blender or food processor

Parchment paper

Round pizza pan with a lip or cookie sheet

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups Raw finely grated cauliflower

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese + plus 1 cup extra for topping

2 cups blended coarse cooked chicken (rotisserie chicken is easier)

3 large eggs

Tomato sauce or Pesto

Toppings of your choice

Varied Spices into mix. i.e.: salt, pepper, garlic, onion salt, etc.

DIRECTIONS:

1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Cut parchment paper to match the size and shape of your pizza pan. Parchment paper is the best way to prevent your crust from sticking to the baking surface.

2. Finely grate cauliflower and remove any large chunks. You want a fine, uniform texture like rice. Blend Chicken in a blender or food processor to course or fine.

3. Mix together the chicken, cauliflower, mozzarella cheese, spices and 3 eggs until well-combined. At this point, it may not look like it could possibly turn into pizza crust, but it will bake to a thin, crunchy, flexible crust- just watch!

4. Place chicken & cauliflower mixture in the center of the parchment paper on the pizza pan. Spread the mixture thinly but evenly throughout the edges of the pan.

5. Bake crust at 450 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes. Until very golden brown

6. Assemble the rest of your toppings. Place a small dollop of preferred sauce- start with less than you think you’ll need- in the center of your crust and spread it out nearly to the edge. Be conservative with the sauce- **putting too much tomato sauce was one of my mistakes (soggy) when I was perfecting this recipe**

7. Top with cheese, followed by any other toppings of your choice.

8. Return it to the oven and bake until cheese is evenly melted and just beginning to turn golden on the surface– usually 10 minutes.

 

KETO Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

KETO Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

Makes: One 8X4” Loaf (12 servings)

Prep time: 15 min.   Cook time: 50 min.

Ingredients:

1 Loosely packed cup grated Zucchini

5 large Eggs room temperature

½ cup Avocado Oil

2 TBSP. Greek Yogurt (optional -4 added protein)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ teaspoon liquid stevia

½ cup monk fruit sugar (or another sugar-free substitute)

DRY Ingredients:

1 cup Coconut Flour

½ cup Almond flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon Salt

½ teaspoon Cinnamon

½ cup sugar free chocolate chips

½ cup nuts of your choice (for either inside the loaf or on top)

 

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line the 8 X 4” loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving some paper overhanging for easy removal of bread.

In a large bowl add Eggs, Avocado oil, vanilla extract, all sugars and (optional) yogurt. Mix with an electric hand mixer. Add in Zucchini and mix again.

In another bowl add in the flours, salt, cinnamon, & baking powder, combined together. Then add into the large bowl of wet ingredients. Mix until they are fully incorporated and there are no clumps of batter                  remaining.

Using a rubber spatula, fold in the chocolate chips and (optional) Nuts.

Pour the batter into the loaf pan smooth the top and add (optional) nut topping or sprinkle of cinnamon. Bake for 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. I usually turn around in oven at 25 min. and check the       top. If the top starts to get too brown, add a piece of tin foil to the top for the last 10 minutes. This helps so the loaf is not over done on the top vs. the sides.

Allow to cool for 30 minutes before removing and slicing.

Store left overs in the refrigerator for up to a week or freeze for 3 months.

Yoga Practice

Yoga teachers will often refer to “your practice,” which means your individual experience with yoga as it develops over time. The amazing thing about yoga is that your practice is always evolving and changing, so it never gets boring. Although the poses themselves do not change, your relationship to them will.

Anyone can start a yoga practice, even if you don’t feel like you are very flexible or very strong. These things will develop over time. Another great thing about thinking about “your practice” is that it encourages the noncompetitive spirit of yoga.

One of the most difficult, but ultimately most liberating things about yoga is letting go of the ego and accepting that no one is better than anyone else. Everyone is just doing their best on any given day.
