2. The DASH Egg Bite Maker – $29.99

Eggs are very keto – and this Egg bite maker makes egg bites really fast, easy, and delicious! You can find it here!

4. Jordan’s Skinny Mixes – $4.99

“50 guilt-free flavors for your coffee, tea, protein shakes, baking or just about anything.” I personally LOVE Jordan’s Skinny Syrups – I actually just placed a MASSIVE order with them – lol! I HIGHLY recommend. Purchase in many stores, or direct here.

5. Immersion Blender – $19.99

Immersion blenders are AMAZING for so many tasks. I mostly use mine though for making mashed cauliflower! Target currently has this one on sale.

6. Pork Rinds – 2 Pack for $21.98

Utz Pork Rinds, Original Pork Rinds & Cracklins Utz 5 oz. - 12 count
Pork Rinds are a delicious Zero Carb snack. I’ve tried a lot of different kinds – and for some reason the barrel of Utz Pork Rinds are hands down my favorite. Not gonna lie – they are all delicious though! Pork rinds can be eaten straight, ground up as a panko replacement to fry foods, used to dip in sauces, or even a nacho replacement! The tub can be bought in retail stores, or directly from Utz, here.

7. Gift Card – Varies

Gift Cards! - Just Drums
I know – gift card’s aren’t personal. HOWEVER – Gift cards are REALLY nice for those doing Keto, because your Keto friend WILL need to purchase new clothing, and it adds up fast!

8. Collection of Sea Salts – $29.95

Salts of the World Collection
Sea Salt is a great gift for those doing Keto. Have enough salt in your diet is essential to staying hydrated! This collection looks neat – but I know some areas have really awesome boutique stores that have lots of spices. (Cape Fear Spice Merchant in Wilmington, NC is one that comes to mind for me – I LOVE them so much!)

9. Almond Flour (Yes, really!) – $13.44

Think about how much flour you use in your kitchen. Great. Now increase that price. Because unless you are lucky enough to live near an awesome place like the Dekalb Farmers Market (Decatur Georgia, USA) , almond and coconut flours are heckin’ expensive! So, do your KETO person a favor and help them stock up! This 3lb bag isn’t to terrible in price on Amazon.

10. Keto Krate $39.99 / month

KETO Copycat – Wawa turkey bowl!

Note: I do not make money off of affiliated links; links are simply show and tell.

I have a confession. I LOVE the Wawa turkey sandwich/bowl. Hot turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and gravy, all on a roll or in a bowl. So I decided – lets KETOFY this!

Wawa Turkey Hoagie & Bowl

Two weeks ago we made the KETO Cranberry Sauce and last week we made the mashed cauliflower. This week we put it all together!

I use SOLA brand bread, but any low carb bread that you have on hand will work! For turkey, I usually cheat and buy a precooked turkey breast from the cooked section of the grocery store (usually near the precooked ready to eat chickens). Worse case, get some turkey breast from the deli counter. Just try to avoid kinds that sound sweet – like “maple turkey”.

The Wawa version has gravy, but like I’ve said in my “About Me”, I’m hecking lazy. I think the sandwich is AMAZING without gravy, but if you want to make some – be my guest! I suggest xanthan gum or guar powder in place of flour to thicken. Just mix it cold with water, then add to your sauce in place of flour to thicken your sauce (I’ll come out with a gravy post here eventually – stay tuned)!

Keto Sugar Free Cranberry Sauce

Note: I am not affiliated at this time with any links. All links are simply to provide an example of the product I use/recommend.

Make your Thanksgiving more KETO with some delicious dirty keto cranberry sauce! This recipe is SUPER simple, uses 3 ingredients and takes about 20 minutes! I prefer using allulose because the ratio for white sugar is 1:1, which makes conversions simple! If you have a sugar alternative you prefer, check out this nifty conversion calculator!


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of Allulose
  • 1 cup of water
  • 4 cups (12oz) of fresh cranberries

Directions:

  1. Bring your 1 cup of water and 1 cup of allulose to a boil. While the water heats, rinse your cranberries and remove and funky ones.
  2. When the water begins to boil and the water becomes clear as the sugar dissolves, add the cranberries.
  3. Let the water come back up to a boil, then simmer for about 15-20 min, until your cranberries burst and depending on how “chunky” you want your sauce.
  4. Turn off stove, let your cranberry sauce cool, and put into a container for storage.

Yield: About 16oz of cranberry sauce (32 servings).
