Immunity-boosting Low Carb Dessert Recipe

Need an immunity-boosting low carb dessert recipe to fight this upcoming cold season?

I can’t believe that this year has flown by so quickly and it’s now November. With LA’s fluctuating temperature changes, it can feel like fall during the morning, summer during mid-day, and winter during the late evenings. Because of the rapid weather changes, it’s so easy to get sick. One way to boost our immunity systems is to add the Algenist’s Irish Moss supplement to our meals. Here’s what it contains and why it’s helpful for us:

Red Marine Algae & Irish Moss – fight the imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body

Vitamin C & E – supports your body’s immune system

For an easy dessert recipe, try my immunity-boosting low carb meringue. Check out the recipe below:

Ingredients:

3 egg whites

1 tsp of cream of tartar

1/8 cup of Algenist’s Irish Moss

1/2 cup of monk fruit sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200F
  2. Place egg whites and cream of tartar into a clean mixing bowl
  3. Whip these ingredients together with a mixer (medium speed) until it’s white and begins to form soft peaks.
  4. Slowly add monk fruit sugar (1/4 tsp at a time) into the same bowl while the mixer is on. Whip until the meringue until it is glossy and has stiff peaks.
  5. Carefully sprinkle Algenist’s Irish Moss supplement into the bowl and fold in all the ingredients with a spatula.
  6. Transfer the meringue into a clean cake decorating pouch with a metal tip and create circular treats (approx. 3” in diameter and 2” in height) by squeezing the bag; you can make smaller meringues if you’d like.
  7. Bake in the oven at 200F for 2 hours (do not let it turn brown). I suggest waiting a few hours before serving it so it will be crispy and airy.
  8. Enjoy! Serving size for 4.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts Holiday Side Dish

*Post sponsored by Real California Milk, but recipe and opinions are my own.

Another easy side dish recipe for this holiday season is my roasted brussels sprouts with crispy turkey bacon and Real California cotija cheese. As much as I love the taste of pork bacon, I like that the turkey bacon has less fat. Inspired by my recent trip to Mexico, I wanted to include one of my new favorite Mexican-style cheeses: cotija. It is a nice complement to many savory warm dishes or cold salads that need a bit of salty flavor. I also like that this cheese crumbles like feta and can be a great substitute for your Greek salad. Check out this easy recipe:

Ingredients:

1.5 lbs. brussels sprouts (cut in halves)
3 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
6 oz. of turkey bacon – 8-10 pieces
3 oz. of Real California Milk cotija cheese (crumbled)
1-2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze

Direction:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F
  2. Lightly toss together olive oil, salt, and black pepper with the brussels sprouts on a non-stick pan
  3. Bake for 30-40 min until the sprouts are tender and dark green or a toasted brown in appearance
  4. For the turkey bacon, lightly coat your skillet with cooking spray and turn the stove to medium heat.
  5. Place strips in skillet for 4 min on each side until fully cooked; longer if you want it more crispy
  6. Transfer the strips onto a paper towel and let cool
  7. Cut the bacon strips in 1/2 inch pieces
  8. Mix the bacon and balsamic vinegar together with the brussels sprouts
  9. Sprinkle the cotija cheese on top of the dish

Easy Rosemary & Garlic Cheese Keto Chips Recipe

* Post sponsored by Real California Milk, but recipe and opinions are my own.

Do you love savory and crunchy snacks as much as I do? There’s something about munching on salty potato chips that just bring back happy childhood memories. However, my metabolism isn’t as fast as it was when I was a kid.

After losing twenty pounds via a low carb lifestyle, I’m more conscious of what I put into my body; my mentality about portion control and eating lower carb foods have helped me to maintain my weight-loss, have a steady energy level, and reduce stomach bloat. But I still have cravings for junk foods like chips. Through my partnership with Real California Milk, I discovered that I could create my own healthier keto-friendly snacks baking with asiago, dry jack, or romano cheeses to make crunchy crisps. The flavors and textures of these cheeses are similar to parmesan. However, I recommend baking with these cheeses because they come from California dairies, which 99% are family run establishments; I have to give my state lots of love and support. Here’s my recipe for my Rosemary and Garlic Asiago Cheese Chips:
Ingredients:

3/4 cup of shredded or crumbled Real California Milk asiago cheese (* optional romano or dry jack)

2 tbsp of minced fresh rosemary

2 tbsp of garlic powder

12”x17” non-stick baking sheet (or parchment paper)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300F
  2. Evenly mix the Real California cheese, rosemary, and garlic powder
  3. Place 1 tbsp of the cheese mixture on a non-stick baking tray about 2” apart from each other; flatten each pile so it will bake and crisp evenly. If you use parchment paper, be sure to generously spray it with a cooking oil to prevent them from sticking to the paper.
  4. Bake 6-8 min until it’s golden brown
  5. Carefully remove the tray from the oven and let the chips cool (10 min) on the baking sheet.

And if you have a slight sweet-tooth, I also recommended mixing cranberries to the mix. If you’re curious about where to find these Real California cheeses, click HERE for a product locator.
