  • Vanessa - Hi, Carrie,

    I bought the soup cookbook and am loving it. It’s the easiest way to start the day off right with lots of veggies without getting chilled. The Carrot & Celery Seed soup is one of my favorites.

    Last night I made the Ginger Carrot (etc) soup. I am not sure we have ground ginger, so I substituted fresh ginger, which I already had handy. The soup tasted a bit strange and I’m not sure whether to blame the vegetable broth concentrate I used (the instructions are in Chinese, so I had to guess at the proportions) or the fresh ginger. Does it really make a big difference to use ground ginger instead of fresh?


  • Jessica Durham - Carrie
    I love listening to you and Brian on your podcast! And I just ordered your Icecream and crock pot books!

  • Tamara Elliott - I just finished listening to the podcast on sweeteners. Could you guys give your feedback on monkfruit? I love it and am looking for thoughts on this relatively new to me sweetener.



  • steve bollinger - Carrie, Why dont you break down the macros in your smarter ice cream ebook?ReplyCancel

  • Meran - Hi! Just bought your keto ice cream book. Looks good except for all the guar gum. I have a terrible reaction to guar. Can I substitute a different gum for it?ReplyCancel

  • Cristi - I just bought the Keto crockpot book and I am so so excited! I think this will be a life changer for me and my family. Thank you!ReplyCancel

  • Pualani Wagner - Just ordered your book can’t wait…ReplyCancel

  • Patti - I am thinking of buying the soup book, but don’t eat beef or sweeteners. Are there enough recipes that don’t include these ingredients left?ReplyCancel

    • carrie - HI Patti – yes! There are no sweeteners in the Soup Book and plenty of non-beef recipes! You’ll find loads of useful recipes. Hope that helps!ReplyCancel

  • willow - hi carrie

    made the sour cream blueberry scones last night and it was slightly disastrous. i have no kitchen scale, so didn’t know how to weigh out the almond flour in grams or ounces, so i used volume measurements and used about 2 cups. came out with a crazily wet dough, so ended up adding another 1 or 1-1/2 cups (didn’t measure, just kept pouring until it wasn’t wet pudding anymore). i also subbed vegan butter and also a problem?

    they taste all right, but came out flat and very spongey. like spongey, lumpy pancakes. any chance you can give the almond flour measurement in cups (not grams or ounces) and also advise on what to do if subbing vegan butter and vegan sour cream?

    i know you hate subbing stuff, i am sorry! and you are awesome!ReplyCancel

    • carrie - Oh dear, Willow. I am so sad to hear about your disaster. Measurements are super-important when baking. Baking is science and if you are not exact you will get unfortunate results like you experienced. There is no cup equivalent for weights of dry ingredients, and if you use cups for measuring dry ingredients you will always struggle to get good results because volume measures are highly inaccurate.

      Also, I am afraid I have never used vegan butter or sour cream, so can’t comment on that. Sorry I can’t be more helpful on this one :-( Love to you!ReplyCancel

      • willow - thank you for the empathy, i guess i need to buy a kitchen scale to avoid future disasters. will do! love back at you! :)ReplyCancel

  • Tracy Pfeiffer - Hi Carrie, have you tested your ice creams with different sweeteners? I can’t have xylitol in my house because I did almost kill my dog and the vet bill was $1800. He seeks it out, boohoo. Let me know if you have. Thank you so much! TracyReplyCancel

It’s been a heck of an adventure since I last got to write in this space. I swear it’s a been a geologic age. And while there’s been a whole lot that’s gone on, I’m going to save you the diatribe and just serve up a synopsis of the really big rocks:

And since Ketofest I have been on a whirlwind of podcast recordings with some of the mightiest names in the world of keto and wellness, doing Facebook Lives like a crazy woman, creating a YouTube Channel, an Instagram account, entirely upping my networking and social media game, and finally unpacking the kitchen and office so I can start concocting plates of keto deliciousness for y’all, again.

Life has been seriously compromised since I arrived in Connecticut, thanks to Jennie, and I have been plagued by migraines, fatigue, anxiety, and other Lyme-y subterfuge. I am now just a few weeks away from starting the extermination process to eradicate all the pesky spirochetes and get my health back on track. Again.

It’s been a wild ride, people.

Being laid off from my day job was a veritable dream-come-true in terms of being able spend all my time focused on and engaged in my passion for helping people, but at the same time it took away the source of funding for creating the free recipes, podcasts, social media support groups, videos, articles, live streams, and images to educate, support, and inspire others onto a path of health and wellness. Since I was laid off I’ve had to fund all of my work wholly with the sale of cookbooks. I have never felt comfortable putting ads on my sites like most other food blogs, or getting a bunch of sponsorships or affiliate deals, but that makes it hard to keep the wheels turning and the oven lit. So I can’t tell you how grateful I am to all of you who have helped make what I do possible through cookbook purchases. Aside from cookbooks, all the recipes, videos, articles, images, and social media content and groups are free for whoever needs them. My dilemma now is how to be able to keep producing everything new for free while also having to spend so much time selling cookbooks to fund the production of it all. If I could just share all my recipes freely to everyone who needs them my life would literally be complete. I’m working on making that a reality.

One of the things that has been on my mind a lot over the last year of transition from corporate day job in Seattle to full-time wellness warrior in Connecticut has been a weekly round-up where I share my favorite finds of the week as well as a synopsis of all the things I’ve been busying myself with to help you go from surviving to thriving in life. The format will develop over the next few weeks, but I decided to just jump right in instead of waiting until I had a perfect format down. See?! I’ve been making great strides in the progress-not-perfection department lately. HA!


So here we go with the first edition of The Inside Scoop!














Salmon + Butter + Fresh dill

Lamb chop + Mint Sauce

Scallops wrapped in bacon

Smoked trout + cucumber + Trader Joe’s Green Goddess Dressing + Sour cream

Coffee + frothed heavy cream (breve cappuccino)





































Have a fantastic week!!

  • Sue - Welcome back, Carrie! So great to hear from you. Seeing your photo gave me chills – you look fabulous!

    Sorry to hear about “Jennie”.

    Welcome to the East coast! Happy to have you here.

    Thank you for thinking of all of us, your followers. You know – from my standpoint, if you have to place ads to accomplish your mission, it’d be okay with me. (I ignore them anyway.). ; )

    You’ve inspired me, my dear. Time to kick my fanny and get back to working on my health. As a self-employed individual, with a growing business, I am focused on my work and my diet and fitness have fallen apart.

    Hugs to you and the kitties!

I recently attended KETO Con 2017 in Austin, Texas, where I had been asked to speak about my experience of KETO and Bipolar.

I’ve had a boatload of requests from folks who couldn’t be there, folks who wanted to re-watch it, and folks who wanted to share it with others who they hope it will help.  So please feel free to share it broadly with anyone who may find comfort or benefit.

I am incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support and love since my talk.  My only hope is that this can help others to live in technicolor.

A little while back when the ruggedly handsome Brian Williamson whose podcast I co-host {listen to all the awesomeness – he has a voice like he should be on a smooth jazz radio station} suggested people needed a cookbook for the Holidays, I got straight to work because I don’t need any more encouragement than that to leg it to the kitchen and start making stuff up for you.  In the intervening weeks I have had a simply marvelous time creating 53 delicious recipes to see you through the holidays without the usual threat of The Holiday Ten (twenty?) or having to spend half of next year getting rid of the resultant spare tire.  So today I bring tidings of great joy!  The KETO for the Holidays Cookbook is here – just in time for your to plan your healthiest, most scrumptious Holidays yet.  Because we don’t need no stinkin’ wheat, flour, grains, gluten, or sugars in our food.



Here’s a few pictures to whet your appetite.  Then you can just head here to get all the details and order your copy.  It’s available in print version or e-cookbook pdf, which can also be read on a Kindle.  And maybe you know of some family and friends that would love to get the gift of delicious, grain-, gluten-, sugar-free low carb healthy fare into their Holidays this year.

  • David Williams - Oh yeah I’m gonna get me some of that!!ReplyCancel

  • Jayme - Carrie, I will definitely be ordering the hard copy! I ordered your ice cream book then had a couple of questions before making the treat. You were so kind and answered me. Well,..I am here to tell everyone that ice cream (followed all your instructions) came out divine. Forget about it being very good low carb ice cream. IT WAS THE BEST ICE CREAM I HAVE EVER EATEN!!! Also for me it was so nice to finally make a low carb ice cream that was not like a cement block.ReplyCancel

  • Vanessa - Those are some drool-worthy pictures. I’m terribly excited about the Creamy Peppermint Hot Chocolate (EXACTLY what I need before three hours of volleyball in a freezing gym) and anything chocolate.

    Your scone recipes are to die for (the Sour Cream & Chive one even convinced my onion-hating husband that chives are not evil) and the soups I’ve tried so far have been winners.ReplyCancel

    • Vanessa - Post-Thanksgiving Report: The roast turkey recipe is perfect. Our little turkey came out of the oven browned & crispy on the outside and tender & juicy on the inside. My vegan mother kept exclaiming how impressed she was that the previously-frozen turkey turned out like this, and not like every cardboard-y turkey she’d ever seen in the past.

      We made a double recipe of the eggnog ice cream, which was also a big success.

      The only recipe that gave me any trouble at all is the pumpkin pie squares. Possibly the combination of using an 8″ x 8″ pan (the alternative was 7.5″ x 11″) and 15 oz of pumpkin (instead of the 14.5 noted on the can for a 9″ pie) explains why it took 2 hrs to get mostly-cooked bars. Or I measured wrong.ReplyCancel

  • Vanessa - Which Ketovangelist episodes are you in, besides the one with your interview?ReplyCancel

    • carrie - Vanessa – Episode #74 and onward. There is a Ketovangelist Kitchen segment after each guest interview.ReplyCancel

      • Vanessa - Woo hoo! I’ve found an episode and started listening already. :)ReplyCancel

  • Pam - One of the recipes in your new cookbook calls for “vegetable gylcerine”. In your list of archives/23109, I could not find it. I looked on iherb but these products were for beauty, not to injest. I think this is an ingredient in the pecan pie recipe. Can I leave it out?
    Thanks, PamReplyCancel

    • Mark Kloch - I found it at Whole Foods, it is a skin care product. The label says for external use only? What gives Carrie, love the book BTW!ReplyCancel

      • carrie - Hi Mark! As David says, use Glycerine that says Food Grade. I use NOW brand. I generally get it from Amazon, but it is often found in pharmacies, health food stores or even some grocery stores. Hope that helps!ReplyCancel

    • David Williams - You can get vegetable glycerin on ebay and it is also sold by e-cigarette suppliers as it is used for vaping. It’s readily available. Just make sure you get a food grade one.ReplyCancel

  • Amy - The holiday cookbook is great! It mentions using the turkey giblets for gravy, but then there’s no gravy instructions. What do you recommend for low-carb gravy?ReplyCancel

  • Sue Giachero - I would like to buy all 4 cookbooks for my kindle but can’t find them on amazon. I’ve seen you mention they are available in kindle format but can’t find them. Would appreciate your help.ReplyCancel

    • carrie - Hi Sue – you can buy the e-cookbooks and send them to read on your Kindle. Instructions at the bottom of the Holiday Cookbook sales page. Hope that helps!ReplyCancel

  • Corbi - I purchased your holiday cookbook and I was wondering if there is a substitution for almond meal? I am allergic to almonds..

  • Amanda - Is this the same as the “eat smarter” holidays cookbook? (also 53 recipes) It looks super familiar and I don’t want to double-purchase. :)ReplyCancel

I thought I’d share some interesting financial data with you today. Yes! It’s show me the money day – a pretty compelling look at the difference in my healthcare costs before and after I fired my traditional doctor and my psychiatrist.  Instead, I went to see a Naturopathic Doctor and a Doctor who treats his patients with nutrition.


2013, 2014 & 2015 Healthcare Costs

$8,000 – 10,000 a quarter or $35,000 – $40,000 per year which is an average of $3125 per month

  • Psychotherapy, psychiatry, and general practitioner visits for managing Bi-Polar II Disorder
  • Emergency Room visits for uncontrollable migraines
  • Prescription medications for Bi-Polar II Disorder, nausea, ear infections, and sleep disorder
  • General practitioner visits for recurrent ear infections, exhaustion, sleep disorder, migraines, constant headaches, psoriasis


2016 Healthcare Costs

So far this year $1001 which is an average of $125 per month

  • Check-ins with Naturopath on diet and supplement plan plus electric current treatments for my tennis elbow

Note: I no longer suffer from migraines, headaches, ear infections, a sleep disorder, nausea, psoriasis, or any symptoms of Bi-Polar II Disorder.  Further details of the seemingly endless positive health impacts of changing my health care providers.


Show me the money | Carrie Brown


So, yeah. If you want to know the reasons why I no longer give one Scottish Highland Games toss what mainstream doctors (or anyone else) thinks of Naturopaths or doctors who treat patients with LCHF and KETO diets, I can give you approximately 39,000 reasons every year for the last 3 years.  Science schmience.  Show me the money.  Give me my own anecdotal evidence EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

Do I give one flying ring-tailed lemur whether there is any scientific evidence to back any of this up?  Do I give one fat, juicy Mediterranean fig how or why it works?  Do I need to get a second opinion from anyone anywhere about the efficacy or validity of any of the protocols I am currently using or used to figure out WTF was wrong with me?  Do I care one iota if any “expert”, scientist, doctor, or other “suitably qualified” person tells me I need to see a traditional Doctor or Specialist because I am endangering my health?

No. NO.  No, I don’t.  All I care about is this and the incredible improvement in my quality of life since I changed tack and stopped listening to (and paying) the vast majority of ‘healthcare’ providers.  Oh, and I care about the $3000 per month I am now NOT spending on healthcare.  Because guess what?  I am healthier *by far* now than I have been since I was 11, or maybe even younger than that.

And that is all I need to know.

Also, don’t talk to me about organic being more expensive, or the cost of grass-fed beef, or how it’s too costly to eat healthily, because I can assure you that while my grocery budget *might* have gone up a little, it certainly has not gone up up $39,000 a year.  Or even $1000 a year.  I’ll take spending $1000 a year on great real food v. $39,000 a year on ‘sickcare’ any day of the week.

Happy Labor day, Americans!  Happy first Monday in September, everyone!

  • Richard Bauer - LCHF has not alleviated my clinical depression one iota. I do not have the strength or energy to get through the day without at least one nap, nor does it calm my thoughts. $125/mo for a naturopath is still expensive for those of us on disability. Also the LCHF diet has not alleviated me of the feet, ankle, knee and elbow joint pain I experience…gelatin has not helped. Neither has bone broth.ReplyCancel

    • carrie - Hi Richard,

      I am sorry you’re not finding any relief from LCHF. To be clear, I didn’t get relief from ONLY LCHF either – it was LCHF combined with figuring out other issues that my Naturopath uncovered from various tests and DNA data. You can read about all of that by following some of the links in the post.

      I don’t think LCHF is a global panacea for everything that ails humankind, but from my own experience and research, and studying the effects it has had on others it is obviously hugely beneficial to a large % of people.

      Yes, $125 is a lot if it’s money you don’t have, but the point of my post is that it’s $3000 less money than I was spending previously to get zero relief.

      My health has changed ENTIRELY due to LCHF and working with a Naturopath, as well as saving me $39k each year and this post was an encouragement to people to try something different than traditional medicine and approaches if they weren’t getting the results they need.

      One year ago today I was where you describe you are, so I understand your pain, and I very much hope that you find the solution that works for you.

      This has been life-changing for me.

      Love to you.ReplyCancel

  • Jayme - Carrie,
    I first heard of you on Keto Evangelist when you spoke of ice cream. I love ice cream, but I have been sorely disappointed in any Keto recipes thus far. I finally understood why after listening to you and purchasing your book. All of my Keto ice cream recipes used Erythritol and were as hard as a cement block.
    Now to my question, in your book you recommend Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey. I checked the ingredients and it contains soy and sucralose. I do not want to use anything with soy or sucralose. You mention in your book you are not being compensated which I totally believe. Therefore, would Jay Robb’s whey protein work for the recipes? Thank you for any direction as I am looking forward to making but the soy and sucralose are show stoppers for my family.ReplyCancel

    • carrie - Hi Jayme – let me know if my email helped!ReplyCancel

      • Jayme - Carrie, I cannot thank you enough for replying to my question. I couldn’t get over that I received an email from you personally! I absolutely love the book, have gathered the ingredients and plan soon to make my first batch. My wish is that people who buy this wonderful book understand the amount of time and testing that is put into these recipes that are low carb. This is high quality ice cream. I have made ice cream before with erythritol and it was as hard as cement. You address all those issues and people need to understand that xylitol is NOT FAKE. Thank you Carrie, I am a fan forever.ReplyCancel
