Ok. Some of these are bound to be more successful than others. 😐Although it LOOKS pretty, and tasted ok... I'm reminded that I do, in fact, loathe stevia.
Sticking with erythritol if I need sweetener from here on out, I need to pick up some Swerve

Here's the recipe: Keto Chocolate Cheesecake Pie


40g (1/2 cup) almond flour
52g (1/2 cup) finely chopped pecans
25g (2 TBSP) butter, melted
26g (2 TBSP) Erythritol

Thoroughly mix together all ingredients and press dough into bottom of a springform pan (I don't have one so I used a foil-lined round cake pan) Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Place in freezer to cool

Chocolate layer:

8oz cream cheese, room temp
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
27g unsweetened bakers Chocolate
25g butter
4 squirts liquid stevia 👎 (yuck)
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Melt butter and chocolate in microwave, stirring frequently. Place cream cheese, vanilla and chocolate mixture in medium bowl, beat on medium speed with electric mixer until fluffy and smooth. Add desired sweetener to taste (I'm using erythritol next time) Add in heavy cream and beat until fluffy. Pour over crust and spread evenly.

Whipped Cream layer:

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp erythritol

Beat ingredients together with electric mixer until soft peaks form. Spread evenly over chocolate layer.
Dust with unsweetened chocolate powder and chill for 4 hours. Heat knife under running hot water and clean between cuts for pretty edges and serve.

260g sweet potato (one large sweet potato)
130g almond butter – recipe on how to make it yourself from scratch here
5 dates
2 1/2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup
65g cocoa or cacao powder
40g walnuts

Preheat your oven to 180 Celsius.
Line a small baking tray with parchment paper.
Fill a small saucepan with water and bring to boil.
Peel and cut the sweet potato into small chunks. Either steam or boil the sweet potato chunks until soft.
Finely chop the dates and roughly chop the walnuts.
Once the potatoes are done, drain and transfer into a mixing bowl.
Mix together the maple syrup, dates, sweet potatoes, almond butter and cocoa/cacao powder.
Pour the mixture into the prelined baking tray.
Scatter the chopped walnuts over and place in the oven, middle tray, for about 30 mins.

Looks amazing! :)

Order the In N' Out Animal Style burger if you're driving through California or Texas.

Here's how I do it:
Double Meat
Grilled onions
Chopped chillies
Extra tomatoes
Protein Style (they wrap it in lettuce)

Wasn't a good idea reading this before bedtime. Carving is real :D

EXTREME EMERGENCY; DON'T KNOW AREA and/or ON A TURNPIKE: Most fast food burger places can provide you with a lettuce wrapped burger without the cheese and mayo. Chic Fil A has nice salads with chicken- just skip the dressing and check any add ons they put in with it. Subway salads are fairly good.

KNOW THE AREA: A grocery with a hot bar is your best friend. Even those without hot bars usually have cooked whole roasted chickens hot and waiting. You can walk in there and get a couple of apples, an avocado, chicken and some greens and you have a feast.  (I like Whole Foods (aka Whole Paycheck, lol), Harris Teeter, Trader Joes, Meier, Hegman's, Publix)

RESTAURANTS: Steak houses are usually good (caution; most though use grain fed beef), Chipotle, Moe's, Ted's Montana Grill, Mexican (get Fajitas), Outback, Sushi (get sashimi and seaweed salad

the real key when traveling is to overcome the "well, I'm going through a long day- I deserve to spulge on this or that food; or , Hey I'm on vacation, or it's a holiday, as well as not being shy with co-travelers who may not be health conscious like you

My functional medicine doc recommends this for me. Told him I don't want the sugar and so he has me taking this in tablet form- sugar is thus removed. While taking this in capsule form may be upsetting to the Paleo pious- I can reap the benefits of tart cherries without the unnecessary flood of sugar.
