Chicken Pizza Crust

The week before I got sick almost two weeks ago, I was on a ketogenic diet. I craved for pizza but couldn't eat a regular pizza because I was trying to reach ketosis. When I went to see the doctor, he said the space between the L4 and L5 of my spinal segment is smaller than usual causing the disc to bulge touching the nerve roots. This is what causes the tingling sensation, pain and a bit of numbness in my lower back and left leg. This condition is called sciatica. Common among people working longer hours sitting.

Crustless Keto Cheesecake in Coffee Mugs

My officemates and I had this crazy craving. We all want to eat cheesecake but doesn't want all the carbs in it. To satiate our cravings, we decided we'll make crustless keto cheesecake in coffee mugs for dessert, to be eaten after our office lunch or during our tea break. The keto cheesecake recipe was courtesy of my colleague's friend doing the ketogenic diet like us. It is a no-bake recipe because there's no crust. It was very easy to make and it tastes so good sans the guilt. If you have a microwave and fridge in your office pantry and an hour lunch break, this recipe is for you. It only takes less than 10 minutes to make. Here's what you'll need Ingredients 8 tbsp Kiri cream cheese 4 tbsp Kiri labneh 4 tbsp Cooking cream 2 tbsp of Stevia 2 tbsp lemon juice 1/2 tsp of lemon zest (optional) 2 heaping tbsp of sugar-free raspberry jam fresh raspberry Procedure 1. In a bowl, mix cream cheese, labneh, cooking cream, stevia, and lemon juice.
