Oh yeah and let’s just take a minute to appreciate this amazing handmade bowl from Stephanie’s Pottery Shop!!! This year I’ve committed to using more handmade pottery and supporting local artisans as well as using more thrift store and antique accessories.d

Buying Local isn’t just for FOOD!

Her pottery shop is just a few miles away and I’ve been having so much fun working with her on beautiful custom pieces (like the bowl that my Keto Jalapeño Popper Soup is in!)

One of the biggest mistakes folks following a keto diet make is thinking that it’s simply a low-carb diet, neglecting to prioritize that the focus of eating keto is HIGH FAT! If you aren’t specifically and purposefully eating ample (75+%) fat, you’re not getting the full benefits of a keto diet and potentially not reaching a ketogenic state.

So, before anyone says WOW THERE’S A LOT OF FAT in this soup, I want to remind you that it’s a keto recipe and it should be full of fat!

How to Thicken Keto & Low-Carb Soups without Starch

Too often keto recipes are simply reduced carb versions of traditional recipes that still use a carbohydrate thickener (only less), when it’s totally not necessary when you can use high fat dairy! Cream cheese, heavy cream and melted cheese will give you all the thickness you want with nearly ZERO carbs. (I also use this Keto-trick in my break-the-internet popular Low-Carb Pressure Cooker Buffalo Chicken Soup!)

And while we’re talking about dairy, make sure that you ALWAYS choose the highest quality available; full fat, organic, grass/pasture raised and raw, whenever possible!
