- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 pinch ground psyllium husk powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 oz. butter or coconut oil

Tip: If you find yourself with leftover coconut milk, put some into your next smoothie. It will thicken it up a bit and make it richer and more filling.
3. Keto tuna salad with capers
The only thing better than tuna salad is tuna salad with capers! The leeks add a crisp, unexpected touch. Try this yummy take on a classic and you’ll be hooked!
- 4 oz. tuna in olive oil

Tip: You can chop the eggs directly into the salad and add some hot chili sauce. You can also replace the sour cream with mayonnaise for a dairy-free option, or replace capers with olives or gherkins. Try it out with our homemade mayo—simply divine!
4. Keto mushroom and cheese frittata
Known as “Italy’s open faced omelet,” frittatas are easy to make and so versatile, you can enjoy them at any meal! Fresh mushrooms and creamy cheese—bellissimo! The perfect complement to the eggs in this scrumptious keto classic. Buon appetite!
- 1 lb mushrooms
- 4 oz. butter
- 6 scallions
- 1 tbsp fresh parsley
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp ground black pepper
- 10 eggs
- 8 oz. shredded cheese
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 4 oz. leafy greens
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp ground black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). First, prepare the vinaigrette and set aside.
- Slice the mushrooms anyway you like, small or big—whatever your preference.
- Sauté the mushrooms on medium high with most of the butter until golden. Lower the heat. Save some of the butter for greasing the baking dish.
- Chop the scallions and mix with the fried mushrooms. Add salt and pepper to taste, and mix in the parsley.
- Mix eggs, mayonnaise and cheese in a separate bowl. Salt and pepper to taste.
- Add the mushrooms and scallions and pour everything into a well-greased baking dish. Bake for 30–40 minutes or until the frittata turns golden and the eggs are cooked.
- Let cool for 5 minutes and serve with leafy greens and the vinaigrette.
Tip: Be sure to choose your cheese carefully! Select a cheese that has superior melting quality like cheddar, fontina or gruyere!
5. Keto fried eggs with kale and pork
Bring on delicious! Eggs and greens, together with the crunch of nuts and crispy pork, deliver with texture and flavor. Make this all-in-one-pan, butter-infused keto wonder any night of the week!
- ½ lb kale
- 3 oz. butter
- 6 oz. smoked pork belly or bacon
- ¼ cup frozen cranberries
- 1 oz. pecans or walnuts
- 4 eggs
- salt and pepper
- Trim and chop the kale into large squares. (Pre-washed baby kale is a terrific shortcut.) Melt two thirds of the butter in a frying pan and fry the kale quickly on high heat until slightly browned around the edges.
- Remove the kale from the frying pan and set aside. Sear the pork belly or bacon in the same frying pan until crispy.
- Lower the heat. Return the sautéed kale to the pan and add the cranberries and nuts. Stir until warmed through. Reserve in a bowl.
- Turn up the heat and fry the eggs in the rest of the butter. Salt and pepper to taste. Plate two fried eggs with each portion of greens and serve immediately.
Tip: Switch it up with other greens… cabbage, chard, or spinach offer tasty variations. Or, make it a side dish by eliminating the fried eggs.
One last thing… you should try this odd “carb trick” that burns up to 1 pound of belly fat per day…
“All this by Flavor-Pairing?” I asked.
I met an old friend for lunch last month and I was super impressed with how good she looked.
She said, “It’s not so much about the Flavor-Pairing, but more about how it re-awakens what the Japanese call, ‘the weight loss doubling molecule’ which signals 22-hour a day fat-burning effect in the female body.”
Even though I was skeptical, I’ve been struggling with my weight over the last few years, so I gave it a shot and watched the same video she did.
Well, it’s only a couple weeks later and you know what they say about how “you can’t transform your body overnight”…
They’re right – it actually took me 16 days to lose 22 pounds.
Now it’s my girlfriends asking ME what I’M doing differently 💅
