Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...Tell Me More
Breakfast: it’s perhaps the menu with the most stumbling blocks for those living low-carb. Eggs are great, but—let’s face it—get old without some variety. At times we may find ourselves missing the traditional breakfast classics we might have enjoyed at one point—even when we know they don’t fit our current health goals.
But who said keto was about deprivation? Not us, for sure. With a huge array of keto-friendly classic recipes, we’re hell-bent on showing the world just how great keto eating can be—with real food, full flavor and no compromises. So, back to breakfast now…. We dare you to bring this savory keto waffle breakfast sandwich to work—and see just how many people you convert.
Enjoy—and be sure to check out this week’s giveaway with our friends at Birch Benders (below)!Read More
Eggs are an easy and nutritious breakfast, but some mornings a plate of eggs just isn’t what your body craves. Viva variety!
These delicious keto breakfasts are either egg-free or include eggs as a minor ingredient. From keto pancakes, muffins and hot cereal to breakfast sausage and keto pizza, keto breakfasts have never tasted so good.Read More
Most of us grew up with bread as a staple. And breads—or, more likely, rolls and biscuits—at the holidays took on a special significance. Maybe a certain person in the family always made the best kind. Perhaps it was a long-time family recipe. Whatever the case, passing the breadbasket at the holiday table holds meaning for us still, even when we’ve forgone grains for the sake of better health.
All this said, there are ways to enjoy these “traditional” foods when it means the most to us. These cheesy keto biscuits are one such recipe. Hint: make a double batch—because you’ll be competing with the non-keto eaters for these goodies.Read More
Many of you enjoyed the Low-Carb Pumpkin Bread a few weeks ago, and we thought we’d cook up another pumpkin treat before the season passes. For a special breakfast or an afternoon indulgence, this grain-free granola is full on taste and relatively low in carbs (10 grams per serving).
For those who miss the crunchiness of morning cereal or otherwise crave a lot of texture, this recipe is for you. Nuts and seeds are soaked overnight to reduce anti-nutrients. Coconut flakes add rich flavor (and healthy fats), and dates or golden raisins add just enough sweetness to this fall favorite.Read More
October means pumpkin…everything. Those who eating low-carb, however, may believe that most of those treats are off the menu. Not so. It’s possible to enjoy a variety of traditional pumpkin recipes (including pumpkin pie and this pumpkin bread) while you keep your low-carb commitment. Made with the goodness of almond flour, eggs, and all the traditional spices, this pumpkin bread bakes up moist and flavorful. Pumpkin puree rather than pumpkin pie filling means you can sweeten to your own taste. And don’t worry about sugar—this recipe doesn’t have any. It uses a popular low-carb standby—Swerve—to add sweetness without the sugar content.Read More
