Just Like Grandma’s Meatball’s- The Low Carb Keto Chronicles

Just Like Grandma’s Meatball’s- The Low Carb Keto Chronicles

Growing up my grandmother made some of my favorite dishes to eat after school. Of the many dishes she made, her meatball recipe was my favorite. My grandmother would place a mixture of diced onions, eggs, breadcrumbs, and apple cider vinegar, and ground beef into a bowl. Carefully, she would scoop some of the mixture into her hands and roll it into a ball. Next she would place it in a hot skillet pan filled with a little bit of canola oil, and cook the meatballs until they were crispy on the outside. Thinking of the way she used to cook this dish transports me to her kitchen, and the aroma fills my olfactory senses.   I have recreated my grandmother’s meatball recipe many times. Recently, I decided to swap out a few ingredients, and it has been a huge hit with my family. The new recipe is low carb friendly, and it still has all the flavor of granny’s!


Low Carb Meatballs


  • 1/2 cup Super-Fine Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 package Ground Beef
  • 1/4 tsp Parsley
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 jar Rao's Marinara Sauce


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. 

    Place ground beef, dry seasonings, egg, Parmesan cheese, and almond flour into a bowl. Mix all ingredients together. 

    Next line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Then take your ground beef mixture; start forming balls, and place the balls onto the cookie sheet. 

    Bake the meatballs for 25-35 minutes. Fifteen minutes before the meatballs are completely cooked, heat Rao's Marinara sauce in a saucepan. After the meatballs are finished baking, place them into the Rao's Marinara sauce for 10 minutes.

When I started my website almost 2 years ago, I didn’t know then what I know today. I had no idea how to create an e-mail opt-in pop-up, so that when I transferred my website to a hosting site I would still be able to keep in touch with my followers.
After changing my website name and layout, I marketed my website through various platforms such as: Instagram, Twitter, and Periscope. I gained some followers and retention through these platforms, but I could’ve reached a larger audience if I had an e-mail list of subscribers.
Currently, I use the WordPress plugin MailMunch to encourage reader’s to subscribe to my newsletter, and then I use Mailerlite to send out e-mails and newsletters to my subscribers.

The Top 4 Met Gala Trends

The Top 4 Met Gala Trends

The Met Gala has been the pinnacle of beauty and fashion over the years. Each year the gala has a theme where the rich and famous adorn themselves with futuristic cutting edge styles and beauty trends. This year’s theme was comme-des-garcons, which in French translates to like some boys. Celebrities like Solange Knowles, La La Anthony, Thandie Newton, Rihanna, and many more graced the red carpet with their glamorous looks. Some of the top fashion trends of the night were ruffled rose colored fabric, lace, and rose hair crowns. Recreate some of the most celebrated looks of the gala with our breakdown.

Solange Knowles paid homage to her friend Missy Elliot, by wearing a long puffy black jacket similar to the one Missy wore in the music video The Rain- Supa Fly. Solange’s makeup artist sketched and arched her brows like Cranes in the Sky. Keeping with the no makeup makeup trend Solange wore a natural foundation, which you can achieve with Cover FX foundation powder.


La La Anthony slayed the red carpet in her black lace gown, and showed Carmelo Anthony what he will be missing while they’re separated. Her makeup artist selected a mattified foundation like Makeup Forever Mat Velvet + to ensure that her look would last all night. La La’s eyes had a soft smokey mauve eyeshadow to keep with her soft gothic lace ensemble.

Thandie Newton wore one of the trends we will likely see beyond an Easter day parade. She wore a colorful blossoming arrangement of roses in her hair, and an off the shoulder red dress. You can create a floral crown by using a floral wire. First take the floral wire and bend it into a circle, then wrap that circle with green tape. Next use a hot glue gun to glue your flower pieces to the circle.

Rihanna stunned us with a ruffled multicolor dress and red knee high laced sandals. Her hair was placed in a ballerina bun with precision cut bangs. To recreate Rihanna’s look place your hair in a ponytail, then use a Goody bobby pin to pin your hair into a bun.

Quick & Easy Low Carb Turkey Pita Pocket

Quick & Easy Low Carb Turkey Pita Pocket

A few weeks ago, I went to City Subs located in Park Slope, Brooklyn for the first time. Let’s just say Subway has nothing on this subs only establishment. Each sub is made on freshly baked Italian bread, and served toasted or cold based on your preference. You can adorn your sandwich with various toppings such as cheese, peppers, oil, vinegar, and much more!

I ordered the Dean Street sub, and my mouth is literally watering as type this post to explain to you how delicious this sub was! It was so delicious that I devoured it before I could take any pictures. It’s crusty sesame bread is baked to perfection, then mayo is layer on top, along with thinly heavenly slices of roasted turkey. Then peperjack cheese is melted on top and roasted pepper seals the deal! This sandwich is amazing!

I recreated my own healthy version of the Dean Street below! It a low carb roasted pita, that is both satisfyingly crunchy and healthy!
