Keto Fish Pie Amazingness

So.... I found the keto fish pie recipe that was created by one of our awesome moderators over at
Reddit Keto, and decided to make a slight spin on it myself, and it was so good, I had to share!


In the oven!

Hold the Carb's Thickener!

Hold the Carb's sample pack where I found the thickener!



Keto Fish Pie
(serves either 2 very hungry people, or 4 normally hungry people that also have a side dish)

3/4 c Heavy Cream
2 and 1/2 tbs butter
1 Vegetable bullion cube
1 tbs LC- Thick N' Saucy
1 tsp Dill
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp black pepper
1.5 Cups spinach (I used frozen)
1 head of cauliflower
1-2 lbs white fish (White Ruffy - isn't fishy smelling/tasting is boneless/skinless from Trader Joes)
1 tsp water if needed
grated parmesean or aged gouda/ sharp cheese of preference

1. Preheat your oven to 425.
2. Cut up the head of cauliflower and steam (you can use all of the cauliflower since we're gonna
    mash it) until fork tender (meaning your fork can easily spear it to oblivion)
3. Whilest you are doing that, start pan frying (in Olive oil) your fish, until each side is no longer
     mildly translucent, and is fully white with golden sides.
4. When cauliflower is steamed, drain water, and either mash it with a whisk, or use an electric hand
     mixer. (I usually add heavy cream and butter to this to taste, but that's up to you)
5. When white fish is mostly cool, start flaking it up with a fork. Beep boppin' and scattin about!
6. In a deep-ish pot, melt butter, then add heavy cream, and dissolve in bullion cube. Then add   
    spices, and stir until bubbly-ish (not too much or it will get a 'skin' on top.)
7. Add in spinach, and stir until spinach is hot, then add flaked fish.
8. Stir it up (little darlin') and add in the LC- Thick N' Saucy until it thickens. 
9. Taste that shit, seriously, if you've done it right, it should be as delicious as thanksgiving stuffing 
    (not kidding), and if it isn't I must say either there is A. something wrong with you B. You have 
    mind blowingly, unearthly, stuffing for Thanksgiving C. You've never had stuffing or 
    D. You fucked it up. 
10. Add it to a greased casserole or pie dish, then top with mashed caulflower, and bake until top is
     crispy looking, or you just can't take it any more.... enjoy.

A new leaf....

So it has become harder and harder to write out weekly meal plans,
and those who used to use them, have no found their favorite meals and recipe sites from my prior weeks of planning, so I announce that while I will not be continuing weekly meal plans, I will continue to blog about meals I've found and amazing recipes  and sites collected from all over the interwebs!

Hope that makes up for it!

Technical Difficulties....

Hi all,

For this week I unfortunately won't post, but come back next week, when hopefully, things will be a little more organized!

Keto Pound Cake

I was baking, yeah thats right, I'm a lady, blah blah, got it. I just like to bake, lay off.
Anyway, while I was using my tasty skills, I decided I wanted to share these cause they weren't pretty looking, they were pretty fucking awesome.  Done.

It's not crumbly if you let it cool, but it's spongy inside. Yum!



makes 4 in personal cake tins

3/4c butter softened
4 oz cream cheese softened
12-16 pkts of stevia or aspartame
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond
3 eggs
1 c coconut flour 

1. preheat oven to 325
2. grease your tins
3. mix your butter, cream cheese, sugar sub., vanilla, and almond extract with a hand mixer until 
    creamed together
4. Add one egg at a time alternating egg and flour until both are in the batter. Add flour slowly as it can  
    make the batter thick, use less flour if necessary, if you've already put it all in and it's too thick, add
    almond milk until cream cheese consistency- this will never be a liquid batter. 
5. Place in tins to top, this will not be a rising batter. 
6. Bake for 45 mins, but check after 30, your top will be golden, a toothpick will come out clean, and 
    on touch, the cake will spring back.
7. Let cool and enjoy, come up with a topping for it, or just add raspberries and whipped cream!
