Low Carb Ketchup Recipe


  • one and a half cups of water
  • 7 ounces of tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • one packet of stevia
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt

Put all of your ingredients in a nice sized saucepan and bring them to a boil and then reduce the Heat and allow this to simmer for approximately 45 minutes. make sure that you store this in an airtight container and let it chill in your refrigerator. Normally this last in my refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Dr. Kenny’s Favorite Low Carb Barbecue Sauce Recipe

Now that it’s summertime I know everyone  will be barbecuing you in their backyard, park or even at a ball game someplace. Personally I totally love barbecues and because I am diabetic and really have to keep track of my sugars and carbohydrates. Because of that I stopped enjoying barbecues. But this is a great barbecue sauce recipe that I found that is really low in sugar and carbohydrates so now I can finally enjoy my barbecue once again.

  • Ingredients:
  • Two cups of our ketosis ketchup recipe
  • 1-2 packets of stevia
  • 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • one and a half teaspoons of liquid smoke
  • 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt

Now all that you have to do is combine all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix them very well together. Store this in an airtight container and you can keep this in the refrigerator for up to about 2 weeks.

Secret Fat Burning Sauce

Now this is a really great dressing that I put over my meals that are mostly  protein. Such as when I am eating a nice big juicy steak. This take itself is a lot of protein but just because something has a lot of protein that doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily going to help with lowering your blood sugar levels and help you burn body fat. So adding this type of dressing that has lots of good healthy fats will definitely help your body into ketosis state.


  • 3 garlic cloves peeled
  • 1 Cup of fresh leaf parsley
  • one half cup of MCT oil
  • 1/2 cup of coconut vinegar
  • one-quarter  cup fresh cilantro
  • 3 quarter teaspoon of red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt

Add your garlic cloves to your food processor and then add the rest of the ingredients and puree until everything is nice and smooth and  then pour this into a bowl. After that you want to place a cover on the ball and just let it sit at room temperature for at least 1 hour. This will enable all the flavors to blend together nicely. After that all you have to do is make sure that you store it in an airtight container and keep it refrigerated. Normally I use this up to two weeks while it’s in the refrigerator.
