Low Carb Navajo Fry Bread

Low Carb Navajo Fry Bread

I've got two things to share today: Walk off the Earth and low carb fry bread.  

One is a delicious ketogenic bread and the other is a great new band I just heard.  Here's the video that made me fall in love with them.  It's their cover of "Hey Ya!" by Outkast.  (below)

Cool, right?  I've never seen two people play the same cello before.    

Today's recipe is also very cool.  It's a low carb take on Navajo fry bread.  This is a non-yeast quick bread that is fried in oil.  Our low carb version is a little more delicate than traditional fry bread, so we'll need to bake it first, and then quickly fry it for a few seconds at the end. 

Just enough to give it a nice golden color.  Hey ya!
