Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy.

Welcome to summer, everyone. (I think most people agree it starts after Memorial Day, right?) One of the things I’ve always loved about summer is cold brew coffee. As most of you know, I’ll take coffee anytime year round, but cold brew is its own animal and worth appreciating as such. That said, cold brew needs to be done right to achieve the smoothness and sweetness its known for. Here’s how I create my own cold brew.Read 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.

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
