If one could only learn to appreciate the little things...

Welcome    A song that takes you away;
      for there are those who cannot hear.
   The beauty of a sunset;
      for there are those who cannot see.
   The warmth and safety of your home;
       for there are those who are homeless.
   Time spent with good friends;
      for there are those who are lonely.
   A walk along the beach;
      for there are those who cannot walk.

 The little things are what life is all about.
 Search your soul and learn to appreciate...
                                   Lora and Richard

      Product of thr Month

Our product review team will feature 2 (two) "Products Of The Month" one in each issue of our newsletter. These products will be the group consensus of those we find to be the most innovative, tasty, or helpful to the low-carber's daily dietary regime.

Ketatoes Keto Ketato Mix:
Here's a product that will once again grace our Thanksgiving meal in style. It's one of those things that makes meals — especially holiday meals — feel more "normal" and traditional. Afterall, what will you put that wonderful low carb gravy on?

And now before you say "I've tried them and they were NOT like potatoes...", or "I didn't like those things...", it's almost always because the person didn't use them the right way.

There are three main ways to make "Ketatoes" and get a delicious result, and just going by the old label instructions, or just adding water and butter (or just cream, etc) is NOT one of the ways:
  • Way #1 (Most Basic): Warm 4 oz cream cheese with 2 oz (1/2 stick) butter in the microwave. Whisk to mix. Add onion powder and (optionally) garlic or chives, and mix again. Add 1/4 cup heavy cream, 1/8 cup chicken broth, and 1/3 cup dry Keto Ketato Mix (more for stiffer "potatoes"; less for softer.) Whisk to mix well and microwave again to warm. Serve with additional butter and/or gravy.
  • Way #2: Boil Cauliflower (either 1 large bag frozen flowerettes or freshly cut head) until soft-done. Drain well. (I drain in colander and again with paper towels to thoroughly drain.) In food processor or blender (not mixer!) combine cooked cauliflower, 2 ounces cream cheese, 4 ounces butter and seasonings of choice (like those mentioned above.) Process till well mixed. Add dry Keto Ketato Mix to thicken to desired consistency and to add a rich potato taste. Serve as above.
  • Way #3: Make Ketatoes as in "Way #1" and add to freshly boiled cauliflower, freshly boiled jicama, or boiled, diced turnips. Process well in food processor. The turnip option is especially good with lots of pepper and a little nutmeg.
Ketatoes with Turkey If you are at maintenance level, are doing a more liberal approach, or are making your Thanksgiving meal for non-low-carbers as well, try making your dish by mixing 2 parts Ketato (made via Method #1 above) with 1 part pre-made instant mashed potatoes. (I made this dish at Thanksgiving last year, and everyone just assumed they were pure (real) mashed potatoes and they were gobbled up faster than the turkey!)

If you haven't tried Ketatoes at their full potential, by all means treat yourself to that warm, comfort-food feel of 'almost' mashed potatoes. You can purchase them online from
The Low Carb Connoisseur.
