Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Crack the eggs and separate the egg yolks into a heat-resistant bowl. Save the egg whites for something else, for example a tortilla bread.
  2. Mix white-wine vinegar, onion powder, chili and tomato paste in a separate small bowl.
  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan without letting it turn brown.
  4. Slowly beat in the butter one drop at a time into the egg yolks and continue to whisk, increase the pace into a thin stream as the sauce thickens. Continue to whisk until all the butter has been added. The white milk protein that has accumulated at the bottom of the pan should not be included.
  5. Add the vinegar and tomato mixture. Stir together, salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.

Tip!

A béarnaise sauce will separate if it gets too hot. The safest way to prevent this is to use a double boiler: Simmer water in a pot and remove from the heat. Add just enough water so that you can lower the bowl with the finished béarnaise sauce into the pot without letting the hot water touch the bowl.

Keto: Enjoy losing weight (16:8) #1

If you want to lose weight while still enjoying amazing food, we’ve got the perfect meal plan for you.

To help turn you into a fat-burning machine, we’ve decided to employ intermittent fasting (16:8) in this week’s meal plan. This means your first meal will be at lunch — but feel free to drink coffee, tea, and of course, water throughout the day.

This mouth-watering ketogenic menu will keep you way below 20 grams of carbs per day. It includes some popular budget-friendly meals, such as our No-bean keto chili and Crispy tuna burgers, plus a few more elevated meals like our
Ribeye steak with loaded cauliflower mash.

Remember, you can always swap pricey ingredients such as ribeye with cheaper protein options such as chicken thighs or pork chops. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

By skipping breakfast, you’ll automatically save money that you could potentially spend on higher-quality ingredients such as grass-fed beef and organic eggs — a good investment for your body, the animals, and the environment.
