Lasagna is one of our family's favorite foods. I make this Low Carb Lasagna Recipe in the crock pot and everyone loves it. They don't even mind if it's missing the pasta. The pasta is replaced with zucchini. You get all the flavors of lasagna without the carbs.

Another favorite family dish is meatloaf. Making it in the slow cooker is an easy way to make it ahead, set the timer and have it ready for us when we get home from a busy day. Make this Low Carb Meatloaf in your crockpot too!

I love curry and thought I would have to miss it on my low carb keto way of eating. I am so happy to have found this slow cooker recipe for a Low Carb Yellow Coconut Curry to make for dinner. It's definitely something I will make often! Now if I can just get my local Thai resturant to make me a low carb version of theirs!

My mom has always been a fan of cooked cabbage but I never gave it much thought. Now that I'm eating a low carb keto diet I have been eating it more. My taste buds have changed. Have you noticed that you like different foods too? I am so glad because these Low Carb Cabbage Rolls are so good.

Layer some sauce cheese and bacon on a chicken breast and cook in your slow cooker for a super easy meal. Note: this recipe Slow Cooker Mushroom Bacon Swiss Chicken calls for cream of mushroom soup. I just replace the soup with cream and mushrooms and it tastes great.

Recipe: Pickle Juice Pickle Juice Pickle Juice Why is Everyone Drinking it?

FOOD, RECIPESApril Atwater

Kind of like Beattle Juice only Pickle Juice. If you have done any kind of research into a low carb-keto diet you have probably seen posts about pickles and drinking pickle juice.

The reason everyone is talking about pickles and pickle juice is because it's an excellent way to prevent you from getting headaches, muscle cramps and getting dehydrated when you are on a low carb- keto diet especially when you are first starting out. Even before I started my low carb way of eating a found out that I could stop my migraines in their tracks with some pickle juice. 

Why Pickles and How Does the Pickle Juice Work?

The pickle juice just happens to be the perfect mix of salt, water, and vinegar which renew the electrolytes in your body. It also helps you stay hydrated too. Did you know that athletes drink pickle juice too? It a much better drink than those awful sticky sugar filled sports drinks.

After draining several bottles of pickles of their juice I decided to make my own pickle juice. I already make pickles, I come from pioneer stock and we pickle everything! Here is our tried and true delicious pickle brine recipe.

Pickle Juice (sans cucumbers)

Wash and dry canning jars.  In a large pot combine water, vinegars, and salt. Bring to a simmer then add garlic cloves, dill, and red pepper flakes. Simmer for 5 minutes for flavors to blend. Pour into quart jars.  

That's it! Peasy Peasy! Store in the fridge.
