Hi everyone! Today is a guest post by Kyndra from Peace, Love and Low Carb!



From Kyndra:

“I’d like to thank Maria for having me guest post on her site.  She is such a gracious virtual host 🙂  

There is just something so comforting about a slow cooker full of soup in the winter.  Letting it cook all day as the delicious aroma fills your home and then enjoying a nice, hot bowl of soup in the evening… Perfection!   This Creamy Reuben recipe takes a popular and classic sandwich and transforms it into a rich, creamy soup.   My husband has been known to take down an entire slow cooker worth in a single day.  This recipe has never been featured anywhere outside of my cookbook until now.  This recipe and other delicious recipes like it can be found in my cookbook.”

    Maria, The recipe shows you as the author, instead of Kyndra. You might want to correct that. (Sorry, I’m a chronic proofreader!)

  • Mary says:

    Hi Maria, this looks so delicious I can’t wait to try it. Would this be okay to eat during the 30-day Keto accelerated weight loss period?

  • kim says:

    What is heavy cream? I always see Heavy Whipping Cream.

  • Rosie says:

    Hi Maria,
    I just bought Keto Adapted, so much great info! Thank you! Grain Brain helped motivate me to go keto but I’m so glad I found you, you dig even deeper. Your book, site and recipes have helped keep me going. At 45 I feel better than ever and keeping up with my 5 year old son is a true blessing! I’ve been in ketosis for a month now and my one concern is that I should have lost more than 5 lbs by now. I didn’t cut out dairy, could that be a reason? My MD did a blood panel and my thyroid along with everything else was normal so I don’t think it’s my thyroid. What are some other reasons I wouldn’t be losing? I’m exercising more than ever balancing my diet with plenty of fat. Maybe you’ve written about it and you can point me to it.

    Thank you so much

    • cemmerich says:

      I find that clients that cut out dairy for the first month or so have better results, yes. Make sure to get 70-80% of calories from fat. Also, to ensure weight loss, watch calories (try for maybe 1300-1400). You can also try intermittent fasting. Skip dinner one evening (should be easier now that you are keto adapted). This should get the weight loss going faster. 🙂

  • momof3 says:

    This is off topic, but is it really possible to build muscle mass on a low carb diet?

  • Rob Sydney says:

    The math doesn’t add up for the servings – with only 32oz (4 cups) of stock, this can’t make 14 1-cup servings. Is it a typo and actually makes 4 servings? (my guess)

    Could you please also update the nutritional information if the servings change?.

    • cemmerich says:

      What’s listed should be pretty close. There are 3 cups stock, 2 cups cream, 1 cup sauerkraut, 1 pound corned beef, etc. It adds up to close to 14 cups. 🙂

  • dave says:

    I’m a big fan of your site and also PL&LC-I have possibly a silly question but I’ll ask anyway. Is the corned beef raw or the cooked kind you get at the deli- I would think that cooking it that long would be done with raw beef- is that correct?

    • cemmerich says:

      Since it is a soup I would think you could use either. The already cooked shouldn’t dry out being in the cream and stock.

  • Susan says:

    Quick question! This sounds WONDERFUL, do you think that it would freeze??
    Thank you!

  • Sodapop says:

    Hi maria I was curious to know what you have to say about quest protein bars? Are they healthy? Do they stall ketosis or raise blood sugar? My favorite is the coconut cashew and I like having one as a treat every other day or so so I was wondering what your take on these bars is since I’ve been hearing stories that they can raise Blood sugar.

  • Reegz says:

    Love! And love her recipes too!

  • Liz says:

    Hello! Have you made this soup on low for 6 or so hours or does it work better on high? I also saw the comment regarding the corned beef… Have you used the deli kind? My initial thought was to cook a corned beef and chop it up in soup but deli would be faster! Thanks and we enjoy your recipes!

  • Sandy says:

    First and foremost…Maria thanks so much for your Blog! I have been working with this no carb eating since August and I am very happy with how I feel and my weight loss.
    I have made the cream of Broccoli soup and put it in the freezer. It heats up great when left to thaw out first. thanks so much

  • TJ says:

    This tasted like home. Simple and yummy!

  • Vicki Davey says:

    Hope I did it okay. Cut raw uncooked corned beef into chunks, and drained the sauerkraut. We love ruebens.

  • FDH says:

    Ich mache gerade die Logi Diät. Jetzt wollte ich mal fragen
    ob das schlecht für mich ist. Also dünner werden tue ich jedenfalls davon.

  • Auri says:

    Do you think it would work well with pastrami? we usually make our Reuban’s with Turkey Pastrami

  • Kai says:

    I am wanting to make this next week but I don’t have a slow cooker any longer and no way to buy one before making this. How would I do it on the stove top?
