Cloud bread buns are a great low carb option if you want that bread-like texture for your hamburger or sandwich. Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!
Cloud Bread Buns
3 eggs, yolk separated from whites
3 Tbsp cream cheese (I’ve heard mascarpone or whole milk cottage cheese can be used instead of cream cheese)
1⁄4 teaspoon cream of tartar
A pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Separate the eggs very without getting any yolk in the egg whites.
Put the egg yolks, cream cheese, coconut sugar and salt in the mixer and mix on high speed until smooth. Put mixture aside (in another bowl if you only have one bowl for your mixer).
Put the egg whites and cream of tarter in the mixer bowl and beat on high speed until the egg whites are fluffy and form peaks. This will take about 3-5 minutes.
Slowly and carefully fold the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites until fully mixed without stirring away the fluffiness of the egg whites too much.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Scoop the mixture onto pan in even round circles, about a 3 inch circles.
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Slide them off the baking sheet and make a burger or sandwich out of the buns!

Instead of going out for yet another Taco Tuesday that will leave you bloated and overly full; enjoy making these low carb and gluten free tacos! I either use butter lettuce or Siete gluten free tortillas. Siete tortillas are made with Cassava which is low glycemic and are also a resistant starch. Resistant starch is a type of carbohydrate that is low glycemic, anti-inflammatory and lowers blood glucose levels because it feeds the good bacteria in your gut. Enjoy!
2 chicken breasts or 1 head of cauliflower
1 red bell pepper
3 cloves of garlic finely chopped
2 tbsps paprika
2 tsps Black ground pepper
1 tbsp Creole Seasoning
2 tbsp Coconut oil
2-3 tbsp of Louisiana hot sauce, Sriracha or your favorite hot sauce
1 head of butter lettuce OR your favorite low carb and/or gluten free tortilla
Chopped cilantro as garnish
Grated cheese as garnish
*Optional: Cayenne to taste if you like a little kick
In a pan over medium heat, melt coconut oil. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pan EXCEPT for the butter lettuce or tortilla, grated cheese and cilantro.
Stir and sauté for a minute or two then cover and turn down the heat slightly to medium low and let the veggies sweat and meat thoroughly cook, about 10 minutes.
While that’s cooking plate the butter lettuce by layering 2 large pieces of butter lettuce on top of each other for each cup. When meat and veggies are completely cooked, scoop into the lettuce cups and sprinkle cilantro and cheese on top.

Recipe Wednesday is back Y’all! Today I’m making a low carb & gluten free Bacon and Jalapeño Cauliflower Chowder! Who needs inflammatory, carb filled corn chowder when you have this anti-inflammatory, healing and great for fortifying your immune system Chowder! Yay! Enjoy!
Here’s the recipe:
4 slices bacon, diced
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
1 carrot, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 cups bone broth or chicken broth
1 cup of coconut milk or cream
1 head cauliflower, chopped
2 bay leaves
1 tablespoon of Creole Seasoning
4 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
1 jalapeno thinly sliced
Ground black pepper, to taste
1-4 tablespoons coconut flour *optional, add coconut flour to thicken if you want your chowder thicker
Melt butter in a large stockpot or Dutch oven, that’s fancy talk for big pot, over medium heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 5-8 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool. (Don’t be basic or afraid of fat and blot with a paper towel, you’re better than that, and you know fat is good for you).
Keep the render fat in the pot and add your garlic, onion, carrots, celery and cauliflower. Stir and cook, until everything is well coated in the fat. Add chicken broth and one tablespoon of the chopped parsely, turn up the heat to medium high and cover the pot with the lid and cook until everything is tender, about 5-7 minutes. Uncover and add coconut milk and stir.
Transfer everything to a blender and blend until well blended but still thick; about 10 seconds on a medium setting.
Transfer everything back into the pot. Stir in the Creole seasoning and pepper. Add more if you like. If you are not eating the chowder right away, add bay leaves and let it simmer with the lid on.
When ready to eat, check the consistency. If the chowder is too thick, add more coconut milk as needed or if it’s too thin, sprinkle a thin layer of coconut flour over the entire top of the chowder and stir until desired consistency is reached.
Serve in a bowl and garnish with bacon, jalapeno and parsley to your desire.
