Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Grind the spices and cacao nibs in a food processor or a coffee grinder. Mix ground spices with the olive oil and spread all over the surface of the pork.
  2. Salt the seasoned meat and put it in a slow cooker. Cook for five hours on low heat or four on medium heat.
  3. Remove the pork from the slow cooker and pull the meat apart using two forks. Serve with sliced red onion, sliced pickles, lettuce, oopsie bread, a dollop of mayonnaise, and a grated slaw at the side.

Oopsie bread

  1. Preheat oven to 300° F (150° C).
  2. Separate the eggs; put the egg whites in one bowl and the yolks in another. Whip egg whites together with salt until very stiff. You should be able to turn the bowl over without the egg whites moving.
  3. Mix the egg yolks and the cream cheese well. To make the oopsie more bread-like, add in the optional psyllium seed husk and baking powder.
  4. Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture— try to keep the air in the egg whites.
  5. Put eight dollops on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes until they turn golden.
  6. Allow the Oopsies to cool on a rack. They can be stored in the fridge for 2-3 days or in the freezer. Thaw at room temperature or in a toaster.

Grated slaw

  1. Rinse and peel the vegetables. You don’t need to peel the apple, just core it. Grate everything into rough pieces by hand or in a machine. Put in a bowl. Add all other ingredients and mix. Season to taste.


If you want to eat fewer carbs, this meal can be complete even without the slaw. Just add some extra lettuce to your sandwich or on your plate.

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.
