Front Porch Pecans w/Sea Salt are some of the best Pecans that I have ever had. Serious yo! I thought all pecans where created equal. Nope. These are winners.
The thing about Eliot's Adult Spicy Thai Peanut Butter is that if feels and tastes so real. Like this is something some one made fresh just for you special. No weird fillers or extra stuff, just the yummy stuff. Great flavor and a spicy that will creep up on you. Not too overwhelming though.
I like to put this on a low carb tortilla for a tasty treat that helps deliver some quick protein. I hope I can try some of the other flavors this company has.
I eat a lot of peanuts. Nuts in general really. A lot of almonds and peanuts but mostly peanuts. Great snacks for the middle of the day and to get you through any cravings. A chance to see new flavors are always a nice change. Pizootz Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper Peanuts are a great little pack of peanuts with nice crunch and a strong pepper flavor for a kick. No joke here that they are flavor infused. And it's all natural which is nice too. The small packs are great for keeping at your desk and in your pocket for those much needed moments.
I am brand new on this pork rind train. Don't know why I avoided them for so long as they are tasty and a great substitute for chips that are low carb.
These 4505 Chicharrones Smoke House BBQ are amazing! Loaded with lots of flavor and taste. I could see how they may be a bit too much for some people or even maybe a bit too salty, but it's exactly what I want in a tv watching snack. Nice crunch with a good taste. I am definitely a fan. I wish these were available near me so I didn’t have to ship them. But still super tasty. These take the cake for being my new favorite pork rind. Yummy.
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.
So every box has a nice little welcome card that explains all the items you received and then usually has some promo codes in case you need more of something. I have already found myself using this for a snack I receive in my last box that no one carried in the stores near me. I had to have some more so having a little discount was great to give me the incentive to get some shipped to me.
Lots of great items this month and a couple that I was pretty excited to try out. So what was in my box this month?
Boy what a box this month! I was really excited about this one. Some fun items and lots of good snacks. A couple things stood out to me about this box. First off, Peanut Butter! I love Peanut Butter! And it has a kick too! How fun. I can't wait to try this stuff and add it into my snack mix. It's rare that I ever consider to have Pecans by themselves, which is weird because I don’t mind them. So getting some to try with sea salt seems like a great change of pace. And I am now officially a fan of pork rinds so seeing some fancier ones that are BBQ flavored really made me excited. Peanuts are great too! I can eat those guys all day! Was interesting to see them try something different by adding the seed blend. I am not sure what to do with it. I was hoping to eat it like a oatmeal but we will see. I may have to experiment. Lastly there is a small adapt bar in the box. I'm not a huge fan of the Adapt stuff so that I can live without. But everything else here is great for snacking and someone who craves salt like me! I can't wait to try all of them.

Hey guys! March madness is right around the corner and the kind people that make TGI Friday Potato Skins gave me the opportunity to give away some coupons for some free chips so you have something to much on during the games.
It's pretty easy, just share the Poor Mans Atkins Facebook Page on Facebook and I will choose some random winners for some chips to be sent over.
Full disclosure, these chips were sent to me to review. I haven't received any payment for this review just some of the product to try. These products aren't the lowest carb snack on the market, and may not fit in the low carb approved induction list, but I wanted to do this review as the fine makers are allowing me to be able to celebrate March Madness with you readers and get some free product in your hands too(more on that soon). So I figured, even if you may be eating low carb, some of the people in your house don’t and this review could be beneficial to them.
So that being said, what do I think?
Loaded Potato Flavor
These have great flavor. Lot of things going on in my mouth. Very addicting. And good taste. The chip actually feels a lot closer to a real potato which is nice. These are a great alternative for people that do like those this greasy chips. Again, not very low carb so I wouldn’t recommend these if you are on induction. But if you are maintaining, you may be able to enjoy a serving size of these.
Baby Back Ribs Flavor
Woah, they really nailed the flavor on these guys. Great taste that is some of the best BBQ taste on a chip I have had. Sweet and spicy in one bit. Again, they aren't great if you are early in your diet, but if not, this flavor would be my recommendation for sure.
Super Seedz Somewhat Spicy pumpkin seed mix is great. If you are a fan of dried Pumpkin seeds and like a little kick then these are for you. Good flavor and spice. They don’t seem to do much to fill you up, but they do help to curve cravings for a particular flavor. While this isn't my favorite kind of seeds that the Super Seedz company makes, it's still very good. I recommend them for anyone who is a fan of seeds and spice.
This Cauliflower trend is starting to pay off for the low carbers out there. We are starting to see more products show up on shelves that work with our low carb lifestyle. I couldn’t be more excited about that. One of these products is Green Giant Mashed Cauliflower with Cheddar and Bacon. Essentially a frozen Mashed Cauliflower dish its super easy to make and only takes about 6 minute to prepare and it has great flavor.
