Cloud Bread

This is a low carb option for bread. You can add seasonings or other things to make this bread more savory or sweet to your liking or to help serve its purpose. I use the base recipe for sandwich bread. However I’ll add garlic and Italian seasoning when eating with Italian foods. Here is the basic recipe: 

Cloud Bread

  • 3 eggs, separated 
  • 3 TBS cream cheese 
  • 1 TBS xylitol 
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda

bacon egg and cheese sandwich


Preheat oven to 300°.  Use two mixing bowls. In first mixing bowl combine egg yolks, cream cheese and xylitol until combined. In the second bowl beat egg whites and baking soda on high speed until peaks hold. Gently but quickly fold yolks into the whites then spoon onto a parchment sheet lined baking pan and bake at 300° for 17-20 minutes, then broil for 1 minute or until golden brown.

Ranch Dressing

Ranch Dressing

Here recently I have been doing a ketogenic diet.  This is an extremely high fat low carb diet that has to be done with clean real food and healthy fats.  This ranch works perfect for that. I actually call it my keto ranch.

Whisk together all ingredients. Store in refrigerator.

I use 2 Tablespoons at a time usually, but I eat fairly large salads.  Pictured above is 3 cups spinach, 2 oz nitrate, nitrite free ham, 1/2 oz shredded carrot, 1 oz raw cheddar, and the ranch.  Pictured below is 3 cups spinach, 2 oz shredded chicken, 3 slices of nitrite, nitrate free bacon, 1/2 oz shredded organic carrot, 1 oz raw cheddar, 1/5 tomato, and the ranch.  Other salad favorites to add are boiled eggs, avocado, black olives, mixed greens.
