KETO COMFORT FOOD
Food is celebratory, food triggers memories, food prompts emotions. I had the great pleasure to travel to New Orleans in 2011 for business and was taken to eat at an amazing restaurant on Bourbon street called Antoine’s Restaurant. It wasn’t just in the main dining area, it was in a haunted private dining room! I had Etouffe which my Crawfish Etouffe (see page 235) is based off. The restaurant also made special sugar free Swerve-sweetened desserts for the table! During dinner, a lot of people I was dining with were locals. They asked me how I stay keto and that in New Orleans it is extremely difficult because “Live to Eat” not “Eat to Live.” Which I found quite interesting.
We are often told to see food as fuel and nothing else, but food is more than that. Even at the young age of 2 ½ my son who first came into our life from Ethiopia demonstrated how food is more than just nourishment. I have videos of him as I am preparing dinner. He would jump into his booster chair, buckle in and start to sing. It wasn’t because he was getting a chicken nuggets, Kraft macaroni n cheese or a bowl of ice cream. I was making my Meatballs with Brown Gravy (see page 000) and he sang at the top of his lungs because it was meal time. Food is pleasure, food is love, food should also be nourishing and that is why I love this book. It is filled with pleasure, love and nourishing foods.
It isn’t bad to enjoy food, my goal is for you to enjoy and fall in love with ketogenic foods so you can not only nourish your soul but nourish your body.
When you think of comfort foods, what comes to mind? Carbs, pasta, chocolates, desserts? I really enjoyed reminiscing about my favorite foods from my former “unhealthy” Standard American (SAD) Diet and pondered on how to recreate those favorite things such as Bomba Burgers and Death by Chocolate Cheesecake into keto foods.
The ketogenic lifestyle isn’t a diet to me nor my family. It is a way of life. We enjoy feeling this amazing so we never want to veer away from the ketogenic foods. Never are we tempted my traditional mashed potatoes or breads. I think the main reason we are never tempted is because I am always on the hunt for new and exotic ways to make ketogenic foods become comforting.
All of my cookbooks have unique keto recipes. I never overlap recipes in my cookbooks!
Valerie Bertinelli messaged me on Instagram that she likes all of my books and especially Keto Comfort Foods book❤️❤️. That is quite a compliment coming from a famous cookbook author! But what is really cool is that my boys and I always watch Kids Baking Competition on the Food Network at night. Now my boys think I’m pretty cool!
Makes a great gift for your Thanksgiving host or hostess!
