  1. Weight Loss: One of the primary reasons people adopt the keto diet is for weight loss. By drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with healthy fats, the body enters a state of ketosis, where it burns stored fat for energy, leading to weight loss.
  2. Improved Mental Clarity: Many individuals on the keto diet report enhanced mental clarity and focus. The brain can efficiently use ketones (produced during ketosis) as an energy source, potentially improving cognitive function.
  3. Stabilized Blood Sugar Levels: The keto diet may help regulate blood sugar levels, making it beneficial for people with type 2 diabetes or those looking to manage insulin resistance.
  4. Increased Energy Levels: Once adapted to burning fat for fuel, many individuals experience more stable and sustained energy levels throughout the day, avoiding the energy spikes and crashes associated with high-carb diets.
  5. Appetite Suppression: The high-fat and moderate-protein content of the keto diet often leads to increased feelings of fullness and reduced cravings, which can be advantageous for those trying to control their appetite.
  6. Improved Cholesterol Profiles: Contrary to the misconception that a high-fat diet negatively impacts cholesterol, the keto diet has been shown to improve the lipid profile for many individuals, with increased HDL (“good” cholesterol) and decreased triglycerides.
  7. Inflammation Reduction: Some studies suggest that the keto diet may have anti-inflammatory effects, potentially helping individuals with conditions related to inflammation, such as arthritis.
  8. Epilepsy Management: The ketogenic diet has been used for decades as a therapeutic approach to manage epilepsy, particularly in children. It can significantly reduce the frequency of seizures in some cases

A lasagna made with cheese noodles. This lasagna tastes just like regular lasagna but is low carb and keto friendly.



  • 4 oz full fat cream cheese softened
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded part skim low moisture mozzarella cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning


  • 1/4 cup onion minced
  • 1 lb ground beef I used lean ground beef
  • 1 cup no sugar added marinara sauce
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 6 tbsp ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup shredded part skim low moisture mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Add all cheese dough ingredients into a food processor. Blend until evenly mixed. It should have a thick liquid consistency. If you do not have a food processor, you can mix by hand (see notes).
  • Pour cheese batter into prepared baking pan. Use a spatula to spread batter across pan.
  • Place into middle of oven and bake for about 20 minutes, or until surface is no longer wet and is firm to the touch.
  • Set cheese noodles aside to let cool. While noodles are cooling, prepare your meat sauce.
  • In a large skillet, add onion and ground beef. Cook on medium heat until meat is browned. Drain excess fat from pan. 
  • Add in Italian seasoning and marinara sauce. Reduce to low heat and cook at a simmer for about 3 minutes. 


  • Evenly slice your cheese dough into thirds. Your slices should just fit into an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan. (see photo in post for reference)
  • Add a thin layer of meat sauce to the bottom of an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan. Add first noodle layer over meat sauce.
  • Add 1/3 of the remaining meat sauce across first noodle layer. Spread 3 tbsp of ricotta cheese across. Sprinkle 1/4 mozzarella cheese across. 
  • Repeat with second noodle, meat sauce, ricotta, and mozzarella.
  • Add third noodle. Top with remaining meat sauce. Sprinkle on remaining mozzarella. If desired you can add a pinch of dried herb seasoning to the cheese. I like to finely crumble a pinch of dried oregano and add it to the cheese.  
  • Bake lasagna in the middle of your oven at 350F for about 20 minutes. If you wish to get some color on the top cheese layer, set your oven to a low broil (after the 20 min bake) and let the cheese bubble and blister for about 2 minutes.
  • Let lasagna cool slightly before slicing and serving. If desired, sprinkle on some finely chopped fresh basil, oregano and parsley and freshly grated parmesan cheese before serving. 


  • I prefer using a food processor for mixing the cheese dough. If you do not have a food processor, it can be done by hand but you will need to finely chop the shredded cheese so it is similar to running it through a food processor. First, whisk softened cream cheese until smooth. Add in eggs and whisk. Stir in mozzarella cheese and Italian seasoning. Pour into prepared baking pan.
  • You can use your favorite mozzarella cheese for the filling, but make sure to use a low moisture part skim for making the cheese dough.
  • I purchased no sugar marinara pasta sauce to use for the filling. Some brands that offer this are Muir Glen and Rao’s.
