This is a great example of the delicious foods you can enjoy when you are following a ketogenic diet!
Here is a testimonial from Michelle G. who followed my meal plan:
“I have been following Vivica’s eating plan for about a little over a month now. Throughout my life, I’ve always dieted and struggled on and off with my weight. I have been on a low carb diet for about 1.5 year, but I found the ketogenic diet innovative and I don’t feel like I am ” lacking ” anything like I did when I was on a low carbs and low fat diet. Back then I had cravings for sugar or bad carbs, which I dont have anymore since Ive started changing the way I eat. I work up to 10 hour days and I travel for work a lot, but the recipes are simple and easy to follow and absolutely delicious.
My energy levels are higher, my skin looks better, and I don’t suffer from bloating or gas like I used to.
I am looking forward to a healthier lifestyle and to learning more every day about the keto diet and its benefits. I follow Vivica’s blog and watch her cute videos. Her tips and diet plan have helped me a lot, they’ve showed me that its possible to be healthy without sacrificing flavor, healthy fats and meat ( that I LOVE)
I can only thank Vivica for the great job you do in raising awareness. If it weren’t for her and the exposure on facebook and the blog, I would probably still be in my same old eating habits.”
¼ cup creme fraiche (or coconut cream for dairy free option)
¼ cup coconut cream
2 cups organic heavy whipping cream (Or whipped coconut cream for dairy free option)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 360 degrees
Butter a 10x 10 inch pan (or a 10 diameter round springform pan) and line the bottom with parchment paper
Pour the egg whites into a bowl and whisk with an electric whisk until very foamy.
Add ½ cup swerve and continue beating until hard peaks form (2 to 4 min) then move the mixture into a large mixing bowl
Rinse the whisk and in another smaller bowl mix the yolks with the rest of the sugar and the vanilla. Beat on high for about 4 min, until all the sugar has dissolved and the mixture turns very pale yellow
Pour the egg yolk mix into the egg whites, slowly mixing with a spatula stirring from bottom to top
Now add the coconut flour, sifting it through a fine mesh sieve
Slowly stir in trying to preserve the fluffiness of the mix
The batter should be runny, almost liquid
Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake it for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean
Take out from the oven and let cool
Once cool turn it our onto a plate, then invert again.
Poke holes all over the top of the cake with a fork, so it will better absorb the sauce we are about to prepare
In a mixing bowl combine the butter and 2 creams, until well blended. Might have to keep warm before mixing to blend more evenly.
In a mixing bowl whip the cream until very stiff.
Now pour the cream mix on the cake and let absorb for 20 minutes.
Finish the cake with the whipped cream.

This is another version of grain-free, dairy-free Paleo cake. I tend to use a lot of exotic spices in my recipes, and cardamom is one of my favorite ones. I feel like it made plain old orange flavor more complex and interesting. if you really love cardamom try adding a teaspoon to the cake mixture too.
I really like this cake for breakfast or a quick snack, it makes a decent dessert too!
