My low carb jalapeno poppers recipe kicks the flavor up a level by adding one of my favorite “ingredients”: smoke.” Recipe: Ketogasm.

You can use either a stand blender or immersion blender, what is most convenient for you. Voila! Creamy without the cream and added calories!” Recipe: Ketogasm.

A much simpler and still delicious route to take is roasting some good old-fashioned pork belly.” Recipe: Tasteaholics.

“We love broccoli cheddar! The combination is delicious and we love finding new ways of incorporating it into our day.

Keto Chicken Soup

“When the the weather turns cold, or you’ve got a cold there are few things more comforting than a big warm bowl of chicken soup.

Also known as bon bon chicken, the traditional dish consists of cold, shredded chicken drenched in spicy sesame sauce.

“I’m all about that meal prep and shredded chicken has become part of my regular routine… it’s always in the fridge ready to go! With a stock of shredded chicken on hand, this dinner comes together for me in a matter of minutes.

Smoked Pork Spare Ribs With Chili Garlic Sauce

And smoke gets bonus points in my book because it’s entirely carb free.”. Recipe: Ketogasm.

If comfort food and keto fell in love and had a baby, it would be this low carb casserole recipe.” Recipe: Ketogasm.

Keto Chicken Wings

“The blue cheese in this recipe is what really makes it drool-worthy, and it’s also a super nutritious component of the meal. Blue cheese is a good source of protein, potassium, and calcium, but it’s the moldy blue veins that run through it that really pack a healthy punch.” Recipe: CastIronKeto.

Keto Tandoori Chicken Bowls

“Needless to say this was not the greatest introduction into Indian food and I was a little jaded when we tried again a few months later at another Indian restaurant while out of town. I was amazed… The flavors, the spices, all of it was so far removed from our prior experience. I was absolutely hooked; chana masala ✓, tikka masala ✓, palak paneer ✓, but the one dish I can’t get enough of has always been tandoori chicken.” Recipe: CastIronKeto.

Slow Cooker Keto Chicken Tikka Masala

“Chicken Tikka Masala is a super delicious and flavorful curry that you can now make keto! You can serve this on its own and it’s an amazing dish, though you can pair it with some sides to “bulk” it up in a sense. I decided to serve this with cauliflower rice, with a 1/6 serving per person.” Recipe: Ruled.

Sesame Almond Zoodle Bowl

“The sesame almond zoodle bowl is the perfect vehicle for this amazing sauce. Peanut sauce has been one of my favorite dipping and drizzling sauces for everything from low carb egg rolls to an overflowing bowl of stir fry veggies. Sadly, I’ve recently begun reducing my peanut intake. I’ve been focusing on more recipes that incorporate keto friendly nuts and nut butters like cashews and almonds and I have fallen in love!” Recipe: Ruled.

Chicken Tender Lazone

Keto Cauliflower Pizza Casserole

“Instead of using carb-loaded pasta as a base, we use steamed cauliflower. Not a cauliflower fan? Try the recipe anyway. It doesn’t taste one bit like cauliflower. Instead, it’s more like macaroni and cheese meets pepperoni pizza. The sauce is rich and creamy with notes of tomato, garlic, basil and oregano. The red pepper flakes add just a little bit of heat and complexity. Add in layers of pepperoni and gooey mozzarella cheese, and this recipe becomes comfort food nirvana.” Recipe: Ruled.

Low-Carb Cauli Cottage Pie

It’s crazy popular in the low carb, paleo, and whole 30 circles for several reasons: it’s quick, it’s easy, and it captures the delightful essence of an egg roll without all the garbage added.” Recipe: Ketogasm.

Low Carb Chicken Enchilada Casserole

“I have two favorite foods, pizza, and enchiladas. If they were the only food available, I could eat them both every day and be happy. But when you follow a low carb diet, those are two types of foods that are notoriously full of carbs.” Recipe: 730SageStreet.

Low Carb Pizza – Turkey Crust Meatza

“Since then, I’ve tweaked a few things, played around with the ratios, cooking vessels, and a variety of toppings. I prefer to use a cast-iron skillet to get a nice crunch on the crust. Cast-iron skillets get super hot and stay that way, which is great for searing meat. Since your crust is made of meat and cheese, the meat is seared nicely while the cheese crisps up.” Recipe: Ketogasm.

What is Aloe Vera?

Aloe vera is a plant from the Aloe genus with fleshy leaves that contain a clear gel with medicinal properties. Aloe vera gel has been used for centuries to treat various dermatological conditions. In fact, the Egyptians called aloe vera the “plant of immortality.”

The aloe vera leaves are usually long and pointed with a thick skin. Inside each aloe leaf are gel and a bitter yellow latex-type sap. According to scientists, there are about 75 active compounds in aloe vera, many of which are beneficial for your skin. (1)

You can get the health benefits from aloe vera gel by applying it topically to your skin or by consuming aloe vera juice.

Aloe Vera – Nutrients and Medicinal Properties

Why is applying aloe vera gel every day to your skin or face so beneficial?

Natural aloe vera also has enzymes that help to reduce skin inflammation, as well as minerals and fatty acids that promote skin health. Other amino acids and compounds in aloe vera gel have antiseptic and antimicrobial properties. (2)

Aloe vera gel is good for your skin because it contains polysaccharides (a type of sugar molecule) that help to increase collagen production. This has a beneficial effect in both helping wounds to heal and reducing scarring. Aloe gel also stimulates elastin which improves the skin’s elasticity and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines. (2)

Gel from the aloe vera plant also contains antiseptic compounds that help to prevent bacterial, viral, or fungal infections. (2)
