Live Stream recording from Jan 21, 2020

This entry is part 9 of 10 in the series Live Streams

Every week we do a live broadcast where we answer questions, talk about fun stuff, and more! Starting in January 2020, we switched to a new platform where we can broadcast to YouTube and Facebook at the same time. It’s pretty cool, actually. You can find the stream on YouTube or Facebook

We talked about:

  • The Keto Chow flavor of the week is Orange Cream. It’s 20% off until Monday morning.
  • In Omaha we met Tara from Tara’s Keto Kitchen, in one of her videos she said: “lets stop losing weight to get healthy let’s get Healthy to lose weight.” She suggested to write down 3 things you can do to get healthier.
  • How do you take the electrolyte drops? They are concentrated and need to be diluted in water or any drink you prefer. They are quite salty, and the Magnesium Drops are bitter.
  • Can someone use Keto Chow when they are already slim and don’t need to lose weight? Yes, you can. With Keto Chow, you use whatever amount and type of fat you want; you can even do it without fat and do a protein-sparing modified fast. It is very customizable
  • A good discussion from the Facebook support group today: When they put their info into Maria’s calculator, it told them to have 88 grams of protein 78 grams of fat and 10 grams of carbs. They wondered why the protein was higher than the fat.
  • How do you make your savory recipes? We had one person suggest using it to cover meat before putting it in the slow cooker. One person said they make chili with it, delish. Someone else said the Spicy Taco she added fat, cheddar, ground meat, and avocado.
  • How do you do Keto Chow in a hotel, while camping, without refrigeration?
  • Miriam has been working out with @ketokonduct every day, it is awesome!

KCOMAD20 – My plan for 2020: Doing One Keto Meal A Day or 3 Keto Chow

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series One Keto Meal A Day/3 Keto Chow Challenge

Last year I started 2019 doing 100 days of only Keto Chow for all my meals. A lot of that was to prove it was viable as a sole source of nutrients to prove the haters wrong =) but I also did it to test out some theories about how different fats impact my cholesterol and triglyceride numbers. It was a really good experiment that yielded great data, I also missed eating brisket. This year I’m starting a different project, my plan is to either eat:

  • One Meal A Day (also known as OMAD)
  • 3 Keto Chow shakes

Without any snacking, no “cheating,” etc… I’m planning to make the 3 Keto Chow shakes the rule, rather than the exception with 60-75% of my days as Keto Chow only. Having the option of doing a large meal of keto food that isn’t Keto Chow allows me to still challenge myself while allowing flexibility for other keto foods when the occasion arises. Unlike last year I will not be the guy that’s drinking a shake when I cook ribs for Sunday dinner!

I’m also planning to do a daily (on weekdays, maybe on Saturdays) live stream on the Keto Chow Facebook page and Keto Chow YouTube channel – Planning on 9:15am Mountain, which is 11:15am Eastern, 10:15am Central, 8:15am Pacific. I checked the “Keto and Low Carb Live Stream” calendar on LowCarbEvents.com and was worried that there would be a conflict with Keto Connect’s daily Instagram live stream, then I remembered that all of the events on that are shown in Eastern time zone by default. Probably the easiest way to be reminded, if you want to watch the live streams, is to subscribe on Youtube and click the bell icon to be notified.

Happy day: Chocolate Keto Chow is back in stock (and with a larger scoop!)

We just got in a new batch of Chocolate Keto Chow. This particular shipment comes with a change: the scoop is bigger. To get the absolute most accurate measurement of your Keto Chow, it’s best to use a scale to weigh it; that’s actually what happens to the samples of Keto Chow, each one is weighed and must be within 3% of the target. Scales are far more accurate than trying to cram the powder in just right to get the correct mass. When I did a test of the v2.1 chocolate to the new 2.5 chocolate to check for differences in the taste, the biggest takeaway was that the 90cc scoops we had been using were only yielding an average 45g compared to the 48.96g it should give – to handle that change we’re now using 100cc scoops in the chocolate.

Holiday Recipe Challenge: Chef Taffiny Elrod’s Eggnog Gingerbread House

Holiday Recipe Challenge: Chef Taffiny Elrod's Eggnog Gingerbread House

A real gingerbread house that tastes great, smells like Christmas at Grandma's house, and holds together beautifully. All without flour, sugar, or gluten!
When I realized this dough would hold up to building a gingerbread house, I was so excited. It works beautifully, tastes like a good old-fashioned gingerbread, and will make your kitchen smell magical.
Prep Time40 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Assembly time1 hr
Total Time2 hrs
Course: Desserts
Keyword: Chef Taffiny Elrod, Eggnog
Keto Chow Flavor: Eggnog
Recipe Creator: Chef Taffiny Elrod
Servings: 1 gingerbread house and decorations
Calories: 109.93kcal

Equipment

  • Electric mixer
  • Cookie cutters or patterns to cut out the shapes for the house and any decorations
  • Rolling pin
  • Cookie sheets
  • Cardboard or cake board for the base of the house
  • Parchment paper
  • Piping bag

Ingredients

The Gingerbread House

Royal Icing for Assembly

  • 1 cup sifted powdered erythritol
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 tsp water, plus more as needed
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • Food coloring if desired

Instructions

Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Line cookie sheets with lightly oiled tin foil or parchment paper
  • Whisk together the Keto Chow, coconut flour, spices, cocoa powder, and baking powder in a small mixing bowl and set aside.
  • Place the butter in a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until it is light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the sweetener.
  • When the sweetener is completely mixed with the butter, add the egg and the vanilla extract.
  • Beat the mixture until the eggs are completely mixed with the butter and sweetener. The mixture will look grainy and separated.
  • Add half of the dry ingredients to the bowl and blend. When that is fully combined, add the rest of the dry ingredients.
  • Beat on low speed until it is completely combined and creates a stiff dough. It should start to come together into a ball.
  • To make cut-out cookies, chill the dough for approximately 15 minutes. Then, working with 1/3 of the dough at a time, roll it out between two sheets of oiled parchment paper to about 1/2 inch thickness and cut it into pieces for your house.
  • For my house, I cut two end panels with door and window openings, two side panels, and two roof panels, plus gingerbread people, a snowman, and various shapes to decorate the house.
  • Place the cut pieces on the prepared cookie sheets and bake for about 20 minutes until the pieces start to look brown and feel firm to the touch. They will still be slightly soft to the touch in the center but will firm up as they cool.
  • Continue until you have made all the pieces you need. You can reroll the dough more than once. If it gets too soft, just return it to the fridge for a few minutes.
  • Allow the baked cookies to cool completely before assembling the house.

Icing and Assembly

  • To make the royal icing, beat together erythritol, egg white, 1/2 tsp water, and 1/4 tsp cream of tartar in the work bowl of an electric mixer. If the icing is too thick, add more water 1/2 tsp at a time, blending after each addition until it is pipeable but still quite thick. It should be quite stiff. If you add too much water, you can add more erythritol a teaspoon at a time, but try to stay as close as possible to the original recipe so it will dry and hold together.
  • To assemble your gingerbread house, first check the edges of your wall and roof pieces and be sure they are straight and even. If they aren't, you can even them by filing them with a micro plane zester of a small knife until they all match up to each other and are flat.
  • Cut a small hole into the tip of a disposable icing bag or fit an icing bag with a small round tip. Fill the bag about 1/3 full with icing.
  • Starting with the back wall of your house, pipe a generous line of icing along the bottom edge of the wall and place it on your cardboard or cake board. You can use a can or jar to prop it up while you pipe icing along the edge and the bottom of one of the side walls and connect it with the back wall. Continue building the walls of the house like this until you have all four in place.
  • Allow the icing on the walls to set and dry for at least half an hour until they are sturdy enough to hold the roof pieces. Then pipe icing onto the roof pieces where they will connect with the walls and where they meet at the peak.
  • Refrigerate your remaining icing tightly covered while you wait for the house to set.
  • When the house is set, decorate however you wish. Color the icing with different colors, decorate with sugar-free chocolates, sprinkles, and candies. Use your favorite molds to make chocolate shapes. Let your imagination and creativity run wild and have fun.
  • Once the house has dried and everything is set, store in a cool, dry place, loosely covered with plastic wrap so it doesn't get dusty when it isn't on display.
  • If properly stored, it should be edible for up to a week. If you don't want to eat it, it should be in good condition for display for up to a month.
