Dairy-free Dalgona Whipped Coffee: the Viral TikTok Drink Recipe Made Primal

Dalgona coffee, or whipped coffee, is the viral TikTok drink that’s suddenly plastered all over your feeds. To be perfectly honest, it couldn’t have hit the waves at a better time. Staying at home means you are your own barista, and your kitchen becomes your new favorite coffee shop. And the new shelter-in-place lifestyle leaves us with a few extra minutes in the morning to make a fancy coffee drink every now and again.

Lazy Keto Meal Plan

This post is a companion piece to the lazy keto article, which describes what lazy keto is and who might want to do it. The tl;dr (too long, didn’t read) version is that lazy keto is a simplified version of the keto diet where you only track carbs to make sure you’re under the limit to stay in ketosis. According to The Keto Reset Diet and Keto for Life, that would be about 50 grams total (gross) per day, with some wiggle room if most of your carbs are coming from non-starchy vegetables and avocados. Otherwise, you don’t micromanage your protein, fat, or total calorie intake.

Primal Breakfast Cookies

Breakfast cookies are a fantastic way to get some on-the-go nutrition. These cookies are loaded with healthy fats, different forms of protein, and a little sweetness and crunch. The ground cashews provide a sweet and nutty cookie that’s milder compared to almond-based cookies. Feel free to swap out ingredients to change the flavor of the cookies. Try different nuts or seeds, a mashed banana instead of applesauce, or a different flavor of collagen.

Primal and Keto Collagen Recipes

Mark’s said it before: He advocates for collagen to become the fourth macronutrient. Collagen supports collagen-based structures in the body, such as fascia, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, skin, nails, and hair, and most of us just don’t get enough of it from meat, dairy, eggs, or plant proteins. Learn more about the important role glycine, the primary amino acid found in collagen protein, and check out our creative culinary ways to include more collagen in your diet.
Reasons to Include Collagen in Your Diet
Most people regard amino acids in one of two ways: essential, meaning our bodies can’t synthesize them, or inessential, meaning our bodies can. There’s also a third category of amino acids: conditionally essential, which become essential in times of illness and heightened stress. One such conditionally essential amino acid is glycine.

No-Dairy Dirty Chai Latte

A little sweet, a lot spiced, and topped with cloud-like frothed (or warmed) milk, a chai latte is black tea steeped with milk as well as cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and often black pepper, fennel, and ginger. Traditionally sweetened with a bit of honey, the chai lattes available widely in the Western world tend to be cloying with syrups and artificial flavors that don’t honor the Indian art of steeping the tea with whole spices. To find a Primal and Primal-keto version, forego the coffee house line and make your own at home.

Keto Egg Bake

Eggs and bacon or eggs and sausage with black or collagen coffee are typical keto breakfasts, but this keto egg bake is a nutrient-dense and satiating option for a weekend morning when you have a bit more time. Weave it into your Sunday meal prep routine, bake it, cool it, portion it and wrap in parchment paper, and store it in the refrigerator. On busy weekday mornings, take a portion out of the fridge to warm up on the counter, or to heat for a few minutes in the oven or toaster oven. Re-wrap the portioned egg bake in the parchment paper, grab a napkin (don’t forget your travel coffee mug), and you have breakfast on the go.

Instead of the hash browns or bread cubes you might typically find in an egg bake or breakfast casserole, we used grated turnips, but you could also substitute grated parsnips, zucchini, or even carrots or sweet potatoes if you want a Primal egg bake. We used ground chicken, but you could also use ground turkey, beef, sausage, bison, or lamb. Same thing for the other vegetables—instead of kale and cabbage, you could use Swiss or rainbow chard, shredded Brussels sprouts, or baby spinach.
