TESTIMONIES OF THE DAY
30 Day Advanced Keto Testimony: “Officially in the 120’s! Feel better than ever!” – Christie
30 Day Accelerated Meal Plan Testimony: “Maria, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have been following you for about 6 months or so and I can honestly say that I am the HEALTHIEST and in THE BEST SHAPE I’ve EVER been! I’m down to the last 15 lbs and I am almost to goal! Your books and dietary packages was money well spent!
Today I passed a test. And I would NOT have been able to pass it without your help. My dad is an ultra marathoner–he’s incredibly passionate about running. He lives to run. He’s also not the healthiest. He’s eaten a high carb/high sugar diet all his life and it finally caught up with him. About a month ago, he had a heart attack (proof that diet is 80% and exercise is 20%). Of course, our well intentioned doctors have placed him on a low fat diet/high carb diet and have told him he may never run again, especially ultra marathons (his true passion). He’s devastated and I am trying to get him to follow your way of eating. Today, he was supposed to run a marathon. He signed up for it before he had his heart attack. He seemed very sad that he couldn’t run, so he asked me to run instead–THIS MORNING, as in RACE DAY MORNING! Now clearly, I’ve NEVER ran a marathon and I definitely would HAVE to train for it. So I ran a 10k for him instead and I finished with a 12:30 pace or so. I think I most certainly would have done better had I been better hydrated, but I FINISHED! I am NOT used to running 10Ks . I’ve always stuck to 5Ks but I was amazed by how good I felt and how well I did, especially for someone who DID NOT train or prepared ahead. I don’t think that this could have happened without being keto adapted.
So thank you from the bottom of my heart! You are an incredible inspiration to me and my husband. You’ve changed my life and I am forever in your debt.
Cheers!” – Andrea

Man, these photos make me miss summer…I love to take Micah and Kai to the St. Paul’s Farmer’s Market. While we were there this summer I was reminded of daikon.
Daikon may be a new veggie for you. It is technically a radish, but has an extremely mild flavor. If you have tried zucchini pasta before and you are a bit disappointed on how wet the sauce gets due to the zucchini, try daikon! It holds up really great!
Daikon Pasta and Kimchi
- 1 lb daikon swirled into "noodles"
- 4 cups marinara sauce
- Peel the daikon.
- Cut the ends off of the daikon.
- Using the Joyce Chen 51-0662, Saladacco Spiral Slicer, swirl into long thin noodle-like shapes.
- Place into a sauce pan, cover with marinara sauce and saute for 10 to 20 minutes or until the daikon is to your desired done-ness.
- Remove from heat and serve.
Traditional Pasta = 385 calories, 3g fat, 16g protein, 75g carbs, 3.7g fiber (71.3 effective carbs)
Daikon Pasta = 85 calories, 0.5g fat, 5.5g protein, 8g carbs, 3.5g fiber (6% fat, 26% protein, 38% carbs)
NOTE: ADD fat to this recipe to make it ketogenic. Suggestions: Burratta cheese, poached egg, bone marrow, OR shredded beef shoulder)
When buying a marinara sauce, we all know to look for no sugar in the ingredients, but does the one you buy have soybean oil in it? Most store bought brands do. It isn’t hard to make your own marinara, it just needs time. So instead of slaving over a hot stove, check out my slow cooker marinara in The Art of Healthy Eating Slow Cooker.
Thank you for your love and support!
Can you make the “pasta” from daikon using a mandolin? Is this vegetable the same as daikon radish? I love all the options you give to substitute for pasta. Thank so much!
That should work. 🙂
hi maria, I got my gefu spiralizer and I love it. thank you for the suggestion and pasta exchange ideas. does the joyce chen spiralizer make the noodles even thinner than the gefu spiralizer? thanks so much… I would like really thin noodles sometimes..
I think the Joyce one is smaller, yes. 🙂
you are so good to me Maria. thank you.. I love all your recipes. I am a big fan.
Would you also be able to slice daikon lengthwise, similar to zucchini, as a substitute for lasagna noodles?
Maybe. But you will want to cook it to soften😉
Perfect timing! I just bought a wonderful Daikon to do this!
