Testimony on Keto-Adaptation

“A year ago June my then 38 year old husband was in a health crisis. Type 2 diabetic who had just developed high blood pressure. His pressure was so high, his weight was almost 300 pounds and our new Family Doctor went through the roof. He was on the verge of a stroke or heart attack. He also suffers from Severe Sleep Apnea.

I started us on a diet back then which used lean protein shakes. When I learned about you, I switched over to “your way” or now known as the “Maria way or the ME way” (ME= Maria Emmerich) of high fat, moderate protein, low carb.

Almost a year down the road he’s lost 50 pounds his blood pressure is much better and his diabetes is under control. He had a sleep study done and his very severe sleep apnea is now moderate when he sleeps on his side and only severe if he sleeps on his back. I also have lost 50 pounds and that’s even after spending 3 months this Spring/Summer in bed with a broken ankle after a freak ice storm this past April.

We aren’t perfect at following you yet but we’ve already made such huge strides forward. We are working at changing the habits of a lifetime. So Happy to have found you!!! -Sherrilee”

rice

1 pound ground grass-fed beef

1 medium green pepper, chopped

1 medium onion, chopped

3 cups cooked Cauliflower “rice”

1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes

1 can Cantadina Thick and Zesty Sauce

1 tsp Celtic sea salt

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp ground mustard

1 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

“RICE”: Place the cauliflower heads into a food processor (click HERE to find the one I use), pulse until small pieces of ‘rice.’ Set aside. In a skillet, cook beef, green pepper and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink and the vegetables are tender; drain. In another pan, stir-fry the cauliflower “rice” in a TBS of butter until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients, including the beef mixture; mix well. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with cheese. Bake 10 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted.
