Crazy Busy Keto: Recipes, Shortcuts, and Tips for Surviving without Sugar and Starch (Paperback)
“Crazy busy” is a phrase we use when the week seems to spin out of control—like when the school project has to be done tomorrow but necessitates a trip to the craft store, which you will do after the dental appointment and the PTA meeting on your way to pick up the dog from the vet. How are you going to fit in a meal that leaves you feeling satisfied without kicking you out of ketosis?
Crazy Busy Keto makes sticking to a low-carb, ketogenic diet easier than ever by making it simple. Whether you’re juggling work, school, children, pets, travel, or all of the above, you can follow keto with the simple tips and shortcuts outlined in this book. Kristie Sullivan has done the work for you by finding great low-carb options wherever you are, in as much or as little time as you have to eat. From grab-and-go convenience store and grocery store selections to hotel breakfasts to restaurant lunches and dinners, her quick and easy tips will streamline your keto life. There are breakfast options that are faster than a drive-thru, lunch ideas that don’t require refrigeration, and shopping tips that will save you time and money. Kristie has also included special tips for traveling, storing foods on the go, and slashing minutes off the clock each day, along with easy ways to avoid food waste.
Each chapter features recipes that can be made without access to a full kitchen and use common ingredients—no special-ordering anything online. Many of the recipes are traditional favorites that can easily be cooked in a microwave, such as lasagna, spinach artichoke dip, and even cheesecake, which can be made with as few as five ingredients and tastes amazing! In addition, Kristie gives ideas for lightning-fast assembled meals that will hit the spot in a pinch. The book also includes shopping lists for stocking your pantry, fridge, and freezer so that you have what you need, when you need it. Sample recipes include:
Good Morning Granola
Salad Bar Crustless Quiche (grab pre-prepped ingredients from your fridge or shop the grocery store salad bar!)
Cold Pizza Bowl
Deconstructed Chicken Cordon Bleu
Speedy Creamed Spinach
Loaded Baked Yellow Squash
Cheese Cracker Snacks
Peanut Butter Fudge
Life isn’t perfect, but your macros can be when you learn how to survive and thrive with Crazy Busy Keto.
