So I only had 24 oz of cream cheese, but I decided to wing it. My 9 in cheesecake pan is silicone and not very deep. After mixing everything ( did everything else by recipe, just less cream cheese) I had too much filling, so I also filled 5 silicone cupcake liners and baked it in a water bath on the lower rack. At 35 minutes the large cake was starting to brown but the small ones were still white, but seemed pretty solid, so I took them out and cooled them. Then at 45 minutes, the big cake seemed almost too brown, so I pulled it out. A couple hours in the fridge and the small ones( with no crust) popped out of the silicone liners and were super delicious. The big one came away from the sides cleanly and it would have been ready to eat already, but we already ate the little ones, so tomorrow we will see how yummy the cake is with crust. Yay for cheesecake!
Haven’t heard of The ketogenic diet (often called keto)? It’s a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares similarities to paleo, Whole30, and Atkins. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat. When your body switches to burning fat for its primary fuel source, that’s when you hit ketosis. While on the Keto diet you’re supposed to get at least 70 percent of your calories from fat, 15 to 25 percent from protein, and 10 percent from carbohydrates. You’re supposed to avoid all grains, legumes, root vegetables, fruit, (except berries) and sugar.
Danyiel, Your daily macronutrient needs (for calories, protein, fat, and carbs) vary person to person, and also based on what your fitness goals are (for example, weight loss, maintenance, etc.). There are calculators that help you determine your specific macro levels; you might find our macro calculator review post helpful: https://theketoqueens.com/keto-macro-calculator-review/ Please let us know if you have other questions; good luck on your keto journey!
My main reason for contacting is the problem I may have with chewing sugar free chewing gum ( two packs a day )whilst on this diet. I need to chew most of the time to somewhat disguise the constant spasming to my mouth. Can you suggest a chewing gum that is suitable whilst on this diet? Thank you for the information and references you have provided. If you know of anything regards this diet and dystonia, I would be most grateful.
However, most nuts also contain antioxidants that protect against linoleic acid oxidation, so considering the small amount of nuts most people eat, this is probably not a huge problem for you to worry about. And if you are worried, then dehydrating soaked nuts at low temperatures can be useful in reducing the possibility of PUFA damage along with the levels of phytic acids in nuts.

Rounding errors are common for cream cheese. Most nutrition labels, including products at the store, round up or down to the nearest whole amount of carbs, but the serving is only an ounce. Since this sugar-free cheesecake recipe calls for 32 ounces of cream cheese, rounding up adds up to a big difference! The nutrition information on the recipe card uses the exact carb count directly from the USDA National Nutrient Database, which is most accurate. If you want to see those values for all low carb foods, and see the values used to calculate my nutrition labels, you can find the full low carb & keto food list here.
When we constantly consume sugar, we release dopamine in our brain – creating an addiction and an increased tolerance. Over time you will have to eat larger and larger amounts of sugar to continue the dopamine secretion. Once our body is dependent on a chemical reaction in the brain, we can find that we’re craving things even when we’re not hungry.
As for all the other nutrients in meat? If you’re eating enough meat to get your protein, you’ll probably get enough of those, too. For example, that 4 ounces of chuck roast contains 113% of the RDA for vitamin B12, plus substantial amounts of other B vitamins, like choline. For people without special nutritional needs, it’s just not necessary to worry about it beyond that.
This recipe uses kefir grains as the active ingredient to make the yogurt, and you can taste the mixture periodically to see how sour you like the yogurt. Once you have strained the mixture to remove the kefir grains, this yogurt can be stored in the refrigerator so you have a good supply for breakfast or as a snack for the kids after school. You can mix in some fruit or add in vanilla extract for extra flavor.
This is such a pretty dish that you could serve it for breakfast or as a dessert after a family meal. The layers of chia, fruit and creamy yogurt are just crying out for you to tuck in! You can also change the fruits for added color if you like – blueberries are great in this recipe. When you reach the chia seed layer you will get a wonderful hit from the ginger and cinnamon, setting off the flavor of the fruit.
However, grass-fed beef and bison are healthy. So, too, is virtually any animal that lives in its natural setting and feeds on its natural diet. When you eat a slice of grass-fed beef, you’re consuming the beneficial nutrients that the cow ate. This includes omega-3 fatty acids. And CLA, which is another healthy fatty acid. In fact, CLA may help reduce cancer.
Hi Nanette, For this recipe I recommend a granulated sweetener in the crust and either powdered erythritol or powdered monk fruit in the filling. Pure stevia extract would be very concentrated and may change the end result. A stevia blend may work but the amount would vary depending on which one it is and what else is in it. You can check my sweetener conversion chart which can help if you look up the type you are using.
Legit Halleluj! Made this perfect my 1st attempt & every multiple times following. Also my 1st attempt ever at cheesecake. I think I made it 6 times during recent holidays. Helped me stay on keto during that time!!! Though I still hope to one day find a lower to zero carb cream cheese. One time I swapped cream cheese for Neufchatel cheese as it has fewer carbs (& less fat) but tasted nearly identical. Also, I sub crust to all pecan instead (just ground up raw pecans, butter & erythritol), I’ll have to try to remake one time with your almond crust, if we can pry away from the pecan! **Thank you for your fabulous recipe!!** (I use organic & grass-fed ingredients whenever I can, so it’s always such a bummer when a new recipe doesn’t knock outta the park. But this one does.)
Hi do you boil the heavy whipping cream 1st? I make SCD yogurt. specific carbohydrate diet.. and I add my own cultures which requires you to 1st boil the milk To kill off any bad bacterias then let it cool and add powdered enzymes then let it ferment for 24 hours so the enzymes can eat all the lactose making it lactose free. I was thinking of using whipping cream instead of milk but wasn’t sure about the boiling process?
