Pixiefit Kitchen: Slow and Low Rosemary Ketogenic Ribs

Hey loves! It’s a new year, and I’m excited that I just started the keto diet. I’ve been in a spiral of moderate carb, low fat, high protein eating over the past year, and honestly, I don’t think it’s doing much for me. So I decided to try out the ketogenic diet, where you eat around 70% fat, 25% protein, and 5% carbs. No bread, rice, pasta, or anything like that – you get your carbs from vegetables. You can’t even eat fruit, but honestly, I feel like fruit is a lot of work to eat and I’m lazy.

But I digress, tonight I made some bomb ass ribs without sauce and I wanted to share the recipe with you. You’ll need:

1 rack of baby back ribs (mine was around 2.6lbs from Wegmans)

Duh. Okay, so here are all the spices I used but I don’t measure spices in food, just make sure it’s not too bland and not piled on like an ant hill. Make sure you give the spices a good rub, too.

  • Sugar/Calorie Free Meat Rub (I used this one I have from Costco that has a little pig on the label, but you can use whatever you want)
  • Rosemary
  • Jalapeno Powder (optional if you don’t like a kick of spice)
  • Crushed red pepper
  • Dash of Salt and Pepper
  • Drizzle of truffle (olive) oil
  • 1 tbsp of grass fed unsalted butter for the pan
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon (this is the last step!)

Let everything but the cinnamon sit on the ribs overnight. When you’re ready to cook them, preheat your oven to 300. Cook the ribs for an hour and 45 min. Then, sprinkle them with cinnamon and turn your stove to broil. Broil on each side for 6 minutes for a nice crisp. You can also add a bit more pepper before you broil as well. Boom, you’re done!

Now keep in mind, keto is a *moderate* protein and *high* fat diet, so while ribs are good because they are a fattier meat, don’t eat too much because it’s also very high in protein. I paired mine with 4 cups of spinach cooked in more truffle oil.

Let me know if you have any questions!!

 

Elle’s Black Friday Wish List and Discounts

Thanksgiving is a few days away, and you know what that means – Black Friday sales! Although I generally don’t support mainstream companies, I like to use this opportunity to re-up on my favorite hair products as well as try some new things on sale from small businesses. In the years past, I mainly focused on hair products, but this year I’m expanding to all things mind, body, and soul (I think my coat counts too because being cold isn’t good for my soul). Here’s my list:

Hey y’all! First, I have to apologize – I should have posted this on Facebook before we started, and for some reason I didn’t even think of it. Ack! Please forgive me.

Anyway, I’ve been doing yoga everyday for the past two weeks and am quickly falling in love with it, so I decided to do a 30 Day daily challenge that I found on Yoga with Adriene on YouTube. Her channel is awesome, and I’m loving the series so far. We’re only on Day 4, so I’d love it if you wanted to join! The playlist for the sequences can be found here and I made a Facebook group for everyone to share their experiences – https://www.facebook.com/events/1603776739864283/.

So roll out that yoga mat and let’s get moving! Namaste. xoxo
