Delightfully Yours Parmesan Crisps are for the most part not too different from other cheese crisps you’re seeing on the market. Great flavor low-carb and not a lot of ingredients. One thing I did notice about these more than others is that they don’t have a very strong aftertaste which is great. Some of the others I’ve tried leave a taste on your tongue which I think comes from some of the seasonings they use when they fry the cheese. Overall I’m very happy with these. Great snack size perfect for keeping at your desk or adding to your meal for a supplement.
If you read this blog you know that I am constantly on the look-out for Low Carb products that meet my lifestyle and help to make my life a bit easier. Saving time on cooking, and having a variety of snacks available help to make the diet a bit easier on myself so I don’t get bored with the same old things. So when I discovered that there was a new subscription service that sends you products that fit within the low carb lifestyle I was on board.
Keto Krate is a new subscription box that is available in the long list of to your door monthly box subscriptions that is specifically geared towards the Keto and low carb lifestyle. They guarantee that all items in the box will be less than 5 carbs per serving and that the value of the collected items products will always exceed the cost of the box.
My desire to find some new snacks that were low carb is really what made me decide to give it a try, that plus who doesn’t like a surprise now and then.
My review's for the individual products in this box will be cut short here. I will be doing more in-depth reviews on each product and share links to those reviews here as I complete them. Right now I just want to talk about this month's box and what I got as a whole.
This months box had a bunch of interesting items in it. The first up was sparkling protein water. My wife and I drink a lot of sparkling water in our house but I’ve never heard of sparkling protein water so I was interested to try this. We got some new pumpkin seeds which are garlicky dill flavored. A beef stick which appears to be a pepper flavor. They sent a bag of fried pork rinds which I’m excited about. 4505 is a great brand and I haven’t tried the chili and salt yet. They always have great flavor. Bison jerky is a lot of fun and what makes it even more unique is that it’s woodfired pizza flavored which is really bizarre to me. But I love different. Some Parmesan crisps are great for a snack at the desk. A small jar of pecan pie almond butter. This sounds super fun like it could be a great substitute for a sweet snack. And lastly some sugar-free chocolate syrup. I’m excited to try this because a lot of the other brands out there have a weird taste to them unless it’s the Hershey sugar-free. I like to put the stuff in almond milk as well as on top of my low-carb ice cream.
Overall great box this month. What’s the different items. And the usual types like meet in jerky are little bit different and fun.

I am not a huge fan of these keto bars that are high in fats. They don’t have a lot of flavor to me and they all taste super waxy. This one had a bit more nuts and fruit in it, but not enough to make me like the bar. Pass. I need more flavor.
These pistachios are yummy. Great seasoning and lots of flavor. They give you just the right amount for a snack too. It helps me from not eating to many in one sitting. If you haven't tried The Gilded Nut give them a try. Really good pistachios.
Have you guys tried the pizzas from the Real Good Pizza Co.? These guys figured it out. So the deal is that the pizza crust is made entirely out of chicken and parmesan cheese. 4 carbs only.
They make a few flavors to choose from. Cheese, Pepperoni, and Supreme.
How do they taste? Well it depends on how you cook it. They have two ways to do it. Microwave and oven. I tried both but I actually found that the microwave actually creates the best results and cooks the crust closest to what you expect for a pizza crust. While the microwave does cause some cheese to roll off, it seems to get the overall best results. The company does recommend if you want a crispy crust to put the pizza in a pan for a moment.
Overall I think these are really good a great substitute for frozen pizza cravings. The flavor is good and I actually think that the supreme is the best of the bunch with the most flavor. If you can find these in a store near you I recommend you give them a try.
Sorry I don’t have any pictures of the cooked pizza. I will try to update with one soon.
I was worried that this Gorilla Goods Pumpkin Seed and Kale Mix snack mix would be lacking on flavor but they do put a nice taste in here. It's obviously filled with nice flavor from the seeds themselves, but with the addition of some onion and cayenne seasoning it really helps to bring some nice taste. I let this mix sit in my closet for a while because I wasn’t excited to try it but I should have had it sooner. It tastes great and has some great flavor. I would totally eat this again.

Weather has been super cold lately where I am and nothing battles cold weather better than some hot soup. For me I was craving some Ramen or Pho. But how do you do that when you can't eat carbs? The key to a good Ramen and pho is good noodles. Well I came across some noodles that perfectly help to answer this question.
Pasta Zero is a pasta made from Shitake Mushrooms and is found near the fresh greens. It’s a wonderful noodle substitute and works perfectly as a noodle filler for a soup or pasta. Any the carbs are minimal.
When you first open the bag it has a strong smell, but the instruction tell you to rinse off the noodles and that will eliminate the smell. These noodles are designed to absorb flavors of what they are cooked in so I boiled them in some ramen broth to get my ramen ready. I added some vegies and chicken too.
When all was said and done I had a yummy cold day meal that was low carb and full of flavor. Super tasty and a great substitute for traditional ramen. These noodle are a great lifesaver.
This stuff was great. If you like other snacks out there like Cheese Wisp's or Moon Cheese this is pretty much the same thing. Great for those of us who want to limit the carb intake but still want some crunch in their life. Just the Cheese is great for bringing on the go too. Easy to pack in a lunch or a bag. Hope they become more available.
This company really nails the sugar free chocolate thing. Made in small batches, they will not disappoint. Great toffee taste. Sweet and yummy. So far any of the sweets that I have tried from the Curly Girls group has been a real win.
