Pork Rind Puppy Chow
When I was a kid my sister taught me how to make Puppy Chow. It was a crispy snack made with peanut butter and chocolate. It was so good and really easy to make. I was pondering how to make a keto Puppy Chow and my Pork Rind Cereal has been such a hit, I thought I would try to make Pork Rind Puppy Chow!
This Pork Rind Puppy Chow is amazing! Personally, I do not like plain pork rinds, I find the flavor of most unappealing. However, the combination of peanut butter, butterscotch and chocolate make this keto treat irresistible!
I did a podcast with the Gold Metal Olympic athlete Ben Greenfield and he introduced me to this Butterscotch Toffee Stevia and I have been addicted ever since!
Most of you know that I grew up on cereal and skim milk which is a terrible way to increase blood sugar and cause metabolic syndrome. BUT if you use this keto puppy chow with a cup of unsweetened almond milk it not only tastes amazing it also will also keep your blood sugar stable and in a healthy range.

TESTIMONY OF THE DAY
The 30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse Testimony: “Woo-freekin-HOOOOOO! I completed the cleanse and lost 16.9 lbs!! I procrastinated so hard on the before pics/measurements that I never ended up taking them and I totally regret that However, all my clothes are fitting looser/more comfortably AND my torso/belly has slimmed out significantly, which is my FAVE thing about Keto because that is the area where I carry all my extra weight – and was the hardest to get rid of on any other way of eating I had tried in the past. I am over the moon with my results and will definitely be continuing my whole foods approach and sticking to the dairy free, as well! PS – I also tried the much talked about Chocolate Pudding recipe (added some coconut whipped cream), and all I can say is WOW! So chocolatey, decadent and delicious. You would NEVER know the base is 10 hard boiled eggs! Lol #mindblown Thank you Maria Wojcik Emmerich for this book! It changed my life ” – Athena
