Vermont Beef Sticks

Vermont Beef Sticks

Today is my birthday and there’s nothing I love more than giving away keto goodies to all of you! So today I am giving away a box of Vermont Beef sticks and Vermont Summer Sausage as well as our book KETO: The Complete Guide to Success on the Ketogenic Diet, including Simplified Science and No-Cook Meal Plans!

I get asked all the time for a recommendation on a protein bar for on-the-go keto snacks. Beef sticks are the only true “protein bar” that isn’t filled with unapproved ingredients.

You all know I LOVE camping, hiking, fishing, kayaking… pretty much anything in nature! When I go on these adventures, I always pack beef sticks! We just got back from camping on the North Shore of Lake Superior and my son Micah ate all of the uncured pepperoni sticks!

Vermont Beef Sticks is so gracious that they are offering all of you a coupon code! And if you use the code: MARIA20 you will receive 20% off your order! That is a great deal!

You can find all my suggested Keto Foods HERE.

    Happy Birthday! My favorite so far is Keto Peanut Butter Cup Cereal from aways back. There is no better combo in the world than PB and chocolate!

  • Lottie says:

    Happy Birthday, I hope you enjoyed the North Shore. We are going up there in a couple weeks. This will be the first time since starting Keto. We plan on making your ribs recipe in the smoker.

  • Marki Haynes says:

    Happiest Birthday Wishes!! My husband and I LOVE the breakfast chili recipe. We have three of the cookbooks and pre-ordered the Instant Pot book. Looking forward to discovering our next “favorite” keto recipe.

  • Marilyn Carini says:

    I have so many favorites! But yesterday my favorite was the Meatloaf Cordon Bleu.

  • Margaret Hutnick says:

    Happy Birthday! My favorite recipe is from your comfort foods book… biscuits and gravy! So yummy and it reminds me of my childhood with my Dad cooking B&G on Saturday morning. 🙂

  • Devon Hayzlett says:

    Happy Birthday! I am semi new to this and unfortunately have not had the chance to get a book yet. I have seen the little debbie cakes though and am dying to try and make those for my kids. Also can’t wait to try the breakfast chili. I see peoples pics of recipes on the facebook page lol.

  • Trisha W says:

    My favorite recipe? Any of the ice cream recipes…..BTW my kids love Vermont Meat Sticks. I buy them in my local food co-op regularly.

  • Harvey Geary says:

    I love any Keto recipe that includes fresh seasonal veggies.

  • Happy Birthday Maria!
    My fave keto recipe is your Rosti recipe from the 30 Day Keto Cleanse! I love making it in my waffle maker. So good! Have a great day 💚

  • Marge Brown says:

    Happy Birthday. I am new to Keto, so I don’t have a specific favorite recipe yet. I have made mashed cauliflower a lot, and like it. I live by myself, and work as a high school substitute almost every day. I find it difficult to take healthy cold lunches to school, so am on the lookout for things that I can take. I am learning as I go. My son, who lives in Washington state (I live in AZ) also does some Keto to try to help with his diabetes. He is a cook and has little time to eat, so the Vermont beefsticks will be a gift from me to him.

  • Valerie geib says:

    I have made the grandmas Kringle from the comforts book twice. I love that one best right now. When I try the next recipe I’m sure it will be my favorite. Happy Happy birthday, sweet Maria! May the year be filled with blessings for you and your family.

  • Mesha Tester says:

    Happy Birthday! I am in the beginning stages of my Keto Journey. I have most of your cookbooks and have enjoyed finding recipes for almost anything made in a Keto fashion. So far, my favorite recipe has been the Tex-Mex Breakfast Gravy and your Keto Biscuit recipe. I made the gravy with breakfast sausage and no taco seasoning. My husband and stepson really liked it also!

  • Loren Johnson says:

    I love all your recipes!

  • Amy says:

    Happy birthday, Maria!
    You’re the best!
    My fave all-time is sausage gravy & biscuits!!!
    Have a great day!

  • Cynthia Furman says:

  • cari says:

    Love the sloppy Joes and the taco seasoning.

  • Lenore says:

    Love the breakfast chili.

  • Maria says:

    The Glazed Chocolate Donuts have to be my favorite so far. To be able to have such a decadent dessert, have it fit in my macros, and have it be healthy is so awesome! Happy Birthday!

  • Rosemary Lindsey says:

    Breakfast chili! I take it to work for lunch, and it always hits the spot.

  • Cyndie says:

    Happy Birthday Maria🌼

    Pots de Creme from Keto comfort foods

    Happy Birthday Maria. New to Keto so I don’t have a favorite recipe yet. Looking forward to trying some of the recipes from Comfort foods.

  • Michelle says:

    Love the keto ice cream. Can’t wait to try the Vermont Meat Sticks!

  • Toni says:

    I have thoroughly enjoyed your quick and easy cookbook. The deviled green eggs and ham are scrumptious! Just ordered comfort foods. Excited to see what that brings.

  • Sharon says:

    Happy Birthday Maria!
    Wishing you and your family a year of ever-growing love and wellness.
    My all time favorite is the breakfast chili for several reasons; it is family friendly and everyone I’ve ever served it to has loved it. I can make an enormous double batch and freeze it in individual or family sized containers for an easy grab & go lunch or work day dinner. It makes a great chili spaghetti served over zoodles or a Mexican shepherds pie (chop the avocado up and stir into chili right before you bake it, whip up cauliflower mash season with mild Mexican herbs & a little shredded cheddar.) Next I’m going to sub it for Italian meat sauce in a keto lasagna.
    Your’s are the only cookbooks I buy sight unseen, haven’t been disappointed yet!
    Thank you for the wonderful work you do!

  • Debra Quick says:

    Happy Birthday Maria. My birthday is Wednesday the 5th of September. My favorite recipe is the chicken Alfredo. Thank you -I love your cookbooks.

  • Paul says:

    Happy Birthday Maria and my favorite recipe of yours will forever be the keto protein pudding using the hardboiled eggs, Love that it can be flavored with pretty much anything and it comes out amazing!!!

  • Karima says:

    Love your keto pizza crust!

  • Melinda Dent says:

    Craig’s pizza crust! 😍 happy birthday

  • Christina says:

    My favorite recipe so far is the south of the border salad! SO good! I’m super excited to try many more recipes!

  • Maria, yesterday I received 3 of your cookbooks. I have only had the time to peruse them, but I am sure that there will be numerous favorites. I am “brand new” to keto. I am a senior citizen who has tried many weight loss programs, including Atkins and W.W. without much lasting success since I have gotten older ( >75). I have subscribed to your you-tube channel; I have “liked” and visit you on facebook. Last week I made a request to join your private facebook group but have not received a response, so today I repeated the request.

    As I mentioned, I am a senior. I am also a female who has thyroid disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Lymphocytic Leukemia, “B” cell lymphoma, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, IBS, and diverticulosis. SO I FEEL THAT I REALLY NEED TO SWITCH TO THE KETO LIFESTYLE! I have high hopes.

  • Susan McCollum says:

    My favorite recipe is creamed spinach. So easy! I have some of your books and also find a lot of inspiring keto recipes on Pinterest!

  • Jules says:

    Feliz Cumpleaños lady! Thank you for all you do. My favorite recipes (too hard to choose just one!) would be between the flourless chocolate torte, mouth watering pork carnitas and the Chef’s Salad. Have a great day x

  • Deb Dyslin says:

    Just pick one, and I’ll nod that direction!
