THE KETOGENIC DIET

the ketogenic diet

THE KETOGENIC DIET: A QUICK GUIDE. What is the KETOGENIC diet? The ketogenic (keto) diet consists of eating HIGH FAT, MODERATE PROTEIN, VERY LOW CARB food. The ratio should generally be 75-80% of healthy fats, 15-20% of protein and 5-10% carbohdrates. As a guide, carbs consumption should be restricted to 10-30g a day. How does it compare with OTHER LOW CARB DIETS? Any very low carb diet that forces your metabolism to deal with glucose starvation is termed Ketogenic. Paleo focuses on whole foods and rejects any processed or cultivated foods. However, it can only be termed ketogenic when starches Continue reading THE KETOGENIC DIET

Low Carb High Fat CHOCO ROCKET COFFEE: a coffee snob’s ketogenic alternative to BPC (bulletproof coffee). Everyone loves BPC. Coffee and fat.

All you need to do is blitz that fresh brew in a blender or NutriBullet together with butter and coconut oil. So why did I come up with an alternative, you might ask? 3 reasons why I don’t drink BPC Continue reading LOW CARB HIGH FAT CHOCO ROCKET COFFEE

THE PERFECT LOW CARB OOPSIE CLOUD BREAD

the perfect low carb oopsie cloud bread

The Perfect Low Carb Oopsie Cloud Bread: denser, more satisfying and just over 1g carbs.  Amazing, isn’t it? ‘Bread’ with such a low carb count is pure happiness for keto, lchf  and low carb foodies. But you probably already know that. A google search for oopsie, or cloud bread, returns hundreds of sites where you can find a recipe. The reason it is such a popular search is obvious. The ketogenic diet doesn’t allow any normal bread, because of the high carb content of the flour(s) needed. Even gluten free bread is a big no-no. Continue reading THE PERFECT LOW CARB OOPSIE CLOUD BREAD

EASY SUGAR FREE ITALIAN AMARETTI BISCUITS

easy sugar free italian amaretti biscuits

Easy Sugar Free Italian Amaretti Biscuits: a mouth watering ketogenic version. Hands up who loves Italian Amaretti but realises they are chock-full of sugar and therefore bad news. Well. They ARE simply yummy and addictive. For those with a sweet tooth, they are even more addictive than Pringles, I’d say. But they are also packed with refined sugar. Never heard of Italian Amaretti? OMG! You don’t know what you’re missing!!! Forget that the word Amaretti means ‘little bitter ones’ in Italian. Nothing bitter about these beauties, I promise! On a recent trip to Sicily Continue reading EASY SUGAR FREE ITALIAN AMARETTI BISCUITS

LOW CARB BLACK BEAN SPAGHETTI CARBONARA

low carb black bean spaghetti carbonara

Low Carb Black Bean Spaghetti Carbonara tastes wickedly indulgent but it’s only 3.8g carbs per serving. Don’t you just love classics that you can turn into keto-friendly dishes? Spaghetti Carbonara was one of my favourite Italian recipes. With fatty pancetta, cream and Parmesan as the core ingredients, it was always going to be a good one for LCHF lovers. Except that wheat spaghetti had to go and something low carb had to come in. The obvious first choice was zoodles, but the carbs count was pretty high and the result was far from impressive. Shirataki Continue reading LOW CARB BLACK BEAN SPAGHETTI CARBONARA
