30 Day Accelerated Testimony WHILE TRAVELING: “So it’s now day 21 – just got back from a wonderful weekend at the sea. I didn’t feel self-conscious in my bikini, even though some bits are a little too wobbly for my liking – the toning and firming will take time! Best of all though, is that I had a cooler filled with food and ate lots of curried chicken, cabbage fried in masses of bacon grease, pork pot roast, and bacon grease and celery sticks whenever I needed a snack. I did not go hungry. I did not get all bent out of shape because other people were eating ice cream. Instead I rolled along the water’s edge, covered in sand, getting dumped by waves, with sea water up my nose, in my eyes, in my ears…

This is miracle stuff Maria – I have not played in the ocean like this for FIFTEEN years!! The last time I was able to dip my head with impunity into the ocean, was in 1999! I have gone through a hundred kinds of hell with my sinuses for the last decade or so. Maybe it’s a little premature to start raving with joy, but ten days ago, I stopped squirting cortisone up my nose and so far I’ve had no stuffiness or headaches and this is huge. I used to be in awful pain if I got so much as a drop of water in my ears and was forever anxiously mucking about with ear plugs which never worked. This weekend I simply removed my contact lenses (and hoped that I didn’t fling myself at some strange man, having mistaken him for my husband) and flung myself with childlike gleeinto the ocean. Biggest problem was making sure that my bikini remained on in the waves! Thank you Maria!” – Lucrecia

HAQ Supplement Testimony: “Some of the benefits from working out everyday and eating the Maria way.. my bad back and joint issues are pretty much gone.   I was so afraid of how bad my back would be on the cruise sleeping in the beds there.  I did not have one problem!!!  Amazing! Also, just raked leaves for 2 hours at my house this weekend.   That would usually lead me to the chiropractor and medication and hot/cold packs for a week….not this time.   Only required me to do some extra stretching of my low back!!    WOW!  Looking forward to a healthier future!!” – Mary Jo

30 Day Accelerated Testimony: “I am excited to  move forward with the plan-  just dabbling with  the Maria way- my husband has lost 25 lbs (in first 5 weeks!)- I have lost 6 ( go figure) but we both feel so much better being grain free-and sugar free- my  pre-diabetes  is now in the normal range J  My tonsils are decreasing in size by quite a bit- so excited to  do some fine tuning- just hoping I can get my weight loss moving – a bit faster hopefully!    Hubby loves the recipes and never complains about what I serve for dinner, or any meal for that matter. I have switched my pantry over- need to order a few more supplements- thanks for making everything  so easy to follow! You are truly a God send ( literally)  thank you for all you do!  God Bless!” –  Diana

Egg Rolls (Gluten, Grain, Dairy, and Nut Free)

Maria Emmerich
Servings 10


  • 1 package seaweed wraps 20 sheets
  • SkinnyFat MCT Oil for frying
  • 1 lb organic ground pork
  • 2 cups shredded diced cabbage
  • 3 TBS Coconut Aminos
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • ½ tsp Five Spice
  • ½ tsp Redmond Real salt
  • 1/2 cup Natural Sweetener
  • 1/2 cup coconut vinegar
  • 2 TBS coconut aminos
  • 1 TBS tomato paste
  • 1 clove roasted garlic not raw
  • 1 tsp grated ginger


  • Preheat fryer or oil in a deep skillet to 350 degrees F.
  • Brown ground pork with shredded cabbage in a large skillet with coconut aminos, garlic, ginger, 5-spice and salt.
  • Cook until meat is cooked through and cabbage is tender.
  • Remove filling from heat.
  • Lay one seaweed wrapper on sushi mat (or parchment paper) and spoon about 2 tablespoons of the filling into the center.
  • As you start rolling the wrapper, tuck the corners into the ends so that the egg roll is closed from all angles. NOTE: if the seaweed rips, it is ok. It will seal when you fry it.
  • Repeat until all wrappers are filled.
  • Working in batches fry the egg rolls by placing the tightly wrapped roll into the hot oil for about 2 minutes or until crisp on the outside. Remove from oil and serve. NOTE: they will lose crispiness if they sit too long.
  • SWEET n SOUR SAUCE: Heat the ingredients in a small saucepan until simmering. Whisk until smooth. If you want a thicker sauce, add 1/4 tsp guar gum.
  • OIL TIP: Once cool, strain the oil and store in mason jars in the fridge for future use.

Roasted garlic is something so different than raw garlic. Craig and I were once eating at a Greek restaurant in St. Paul, MN called Shish. Craig’s kaboobs came with a side of the white “mash” which we thought were garlic mashed potatoes. It had the consistency of mashed potatoes and had a smell of garlic. We asked the owner what it was and he said roasted whippedLow Carb Egg Rolls garlic. We tried it and we had to ask again to make sure there wasn’t anything added because it really tasted like mashed potatoes. Nope, just roasted garlic. So, I came home and started making roasted garlic like mad. It is so tasty! I also tried making it in my slow cooker and it works perfect! I do a large batch and store extra in the freezer for meals and side dishes like the Roasted Cauliflower.

  • YUM! Good thing I have seeweed in the cupboard. Is this allowed on pure protein and fat days?

  • Jodi says:

    I love the way you make the recipes printable so we can print our faves out for quick reference!!! Thank you! Also I got the ice cream maker and made the mint chip and cookie dough ice creams and they were awesome and better yet passed the “discerning” palate of my teenager !!! Doin’ our happy dance over here !!!

  • Catriona says:

    I cannot find coconut aminos or vinegar around here. Can we sub for rice vinegar and organic tamari sauce?

  • Jolena Foster says:

    Mmmm I can’t wait to make these. I love Chinese food and I love egg rolls. They sound so delicious. Thanks Maria for all that you do for us. God bless!

  • claire says:

    Can I sub grape leaves? ……vitamin shoppe has coconut aminos…free shipping if you spend $25.00
    Whole foods carries coconut aminos and coconut vinegar

  • Deb says:

    I LOVE egg rolls, so thank you, Maria, for this recipe! Do you know how many carbs of Fiber/serving?

  • Nicole says:

    Thoughts on a vegetarian option? Thanks!

  • Jacqui says:

    These sound and look amazing! I like to make these slightly more complicated things in large batches…do you think these would freeze well, either prior to frying or after, so that I can thaw them later and cook/fry them up?

  • Janet t says:

    these sound delicious, I can’t wait to try them… I was wondering another thing do you count the carbs from the veggies and nuts also. can you recommend a good referral list of total carbs protein and fats in foods. I didn’t see that in any of your books. I have them all and I love them. I have made cauliflower rice, mashed, hazelnut bread, dressing, energy bar. just trying to keep an eye on the carbs though and am a bit confused about. I have eliminated all wheat and sugar. and have had only blueberries or raspberries for fruit but sooo limited. I think I need to understand those carb counting a bit better. I am having the carbo flu today. it is finally hitting me. it is evidence that wheat and sugar is so bad. I don’t want it any more. and I think if I can just suck it up for another month it will be fine. I am really afraid to eat that wheat and sugar after all I read. thanks maria. I alos love that I am getting exercise from cooking and cleaing up and running to the store. eventually I will incoroporate more exercise as soon as I learn how to have these new skills of cooking differently in my life. thanks maria

  • Janet t says:

    thank you so much maria…some of my friends are making lifestyle changes also.
    I want them to read all your books…
    thank you so much…

  • Janet t says:

    hi maria, I found a great counter based on 100 grams which I think is 1 cup. here is the link

    do I have to count the carbs in good veggies (I know from you book that there are starchy veggies, not those) and nuts too as part of our carb total for the day?

    • cemmerich says:

      Yes, all carbs count. I see many clients kicked out of ketosis with too much fiber. 🙂

    • Janet t says:

      Maria, I am sorry for asking this question about counting carbs. but I reread about carbs (even though the whole page is almost highlighted in my book with tabs and everything) but on page 17 of secrets to a healthy metabolism you wrote that you get your carbs from nutrient packed non starchy veggies, nuts and seeds. so sorry, I missed that putting it all together. thank you again Maria. you have been very helpful to me. thank you. I am now afraid of sugar and wheat products and what they do to us. i am so grateful to understand and learn the science of foods and how they affect my body. i have learned that i have let big business make money and tell me what is good for me.I won’t eat it anymore. I love my new food. I don’t miss the old stuff anymore and i am 250 pounds. but have lost and have never felt better in my life. thank you so much maria.

      • cemmerich says:

        No problem. Through more research and studying of the science (as well as client experience) I no longer believe that. My book Keto-Adapted has all the latest information and science. 🙂

        • Janet t says:

          please tell me you will be writing another book…:):):):) soon…. I hope…but no pressure you gotta take care of your little babies..first

          • Janet t says:

            oops I think I misread your comment. my apologies. I think I get it. ooohhh, so rely on the keto adapted book first before the stuff in your other tow books? is that what you mean. cuz in secrets to controlling your cravings on page 139 you have to low sugar fruits and veggies and you wrote use unlimited and on page263 of secrets to a healthy metabolism you have the same list but you don’t write use unlimited. do I count the carbs from what is on the list so then it won’t be unlimited? thank you for all your research and keeping on top of all of this stuff. I appreciate it and happy to buy your books and learn. thanks Maria. thanks for being our watchdog.

          • cemmerich says:

            All the info in Keto-Adapted supersedes the other 2 books. So if one of the other two books has data that contradicts like that, then my knowledge and experience have shown me (over the 5 plus years since Secrets to a Healthy Metabolism was written) has changed. So no fruit for me. You can get just as much antioxidants and vitamins from other sources like spices and herbs without all the added sugar.

          • cemmerich says:

            I am in the process of a cookbook already. 🙂

          • Janet t says:

            thank you so much for the clarification and I look forward to your new book and staying on top of all of this stuff. thank you….

          • Janet t says:

            Maria, do you think you might have a healthified dog food recipe in there also?!!! pretty please….:)

          • cemmerich says:

            Actually, we just get beef hearts from our local butcher and he grinds them up and puts in 2 pound bags. We feed them to her raw and she loves it. (sometimes add calcium since she doesn’t chew on bones often and coconut oil for her coat) 🙂

          • Janet t says:

            Maria, are you going to put a seaweed salad in your new cookbook…is that ok stuff to eat, if I make it on my own?

          • cemmerich says:

            That is a good idea. 😉

  • Dee says:

    Hi Maria,

    By any chance, do you have any conversions for weight for the ingredients you use? I wonder if thats the reason why the baking is not consistent for everyone. Novices like me get so confused with all the different measurements especially as I’m not in America and measurements are different here. The few I have found from your previous blogs include:

    Coconut flour – 5 oz = 1 cup = 150g
    Almond flour – 10 oz = 1.5 cup = 275g, 1 cup = 183g
    Psyllium Husk – 1 tbsp = 9 gm
    3 egg white – 3.5 oz = 92.5g, 1 egg white = 30.8g
    Peanut flour – 1cup = ?gm = ?oz
    Erythritol – 1 cup = ?gm= ?oz?
    Hazelnut flout – 1 cup = ?gm = ?oz
    Egg white protein powder – 1 cup =?gm

    I hope this is useful for some (novice bakers like me!). 🙂

    Maria, please correct me if I’m wrong.

    Many thanks in advance again for all your help.

  • Jodi says:

    these were amazing, I swapped pork for chicken mince, just love your recipes they truly are the best :):)!

  • Jodi says:

    Could you add bean sprouts or are those not keto?

  • Dawn D says:

    Made the egg rolls tonight and they were awesome. I will for sure be making these again.

  • Dana says:

    I’ve made these a few times and I’ve gleaned some insights I thought I’d share:

    1) This recipe is actually one of the more simpler things to prepare. At first I was daunted by the recipe, thinking it would be one of those things that would never turn out as nice as the pictures. I was totally wrong. Don’t be intimidated by having to roll up some nori. Just go for it. It’s a lot easier and quicker than you’d think.

    2)Take the time to make sure your oil is hot enough. They get crispier that way. I pan-fried them in a deep skillet. Works great.

    3)I found them a bit salty the first time around. (Maybe because I used Tamari instead of the Coconut Aminos). So, now I use less salt.

    4)Resist the urge to overfill them! That just makes them fall apart when you’re eating them.

    5)Serve with a side of kimchi. Super delicious!!!

    I wanted to have some insight into freezing them….but, they’re always so delicious that we fry any leftovers the next day before they have time to make it to the freezer! thanks Maria!
