Hi Hilda, thanks for the info on the sugar and the link. Just to ensure I am understanding the #’s, is it safe to say that the total carb count is 7.3g? And of that 7.3g the sugar amount is 3.9g? I have an app I use to track and it is simple total carbs, total fat and total protein, that is as detailed as it gets. I wanted to put this recipe in that appt journal so I can track correctly.

4. HEAT an 8" skillet on medium heat. Spray with cooking spray and pour about 1⁄4 cup of the batter into the skillet. Immediately tilt the skillet and swirl the batter around to coat the entire cooking surface. Cook until the bottom side is golden brown, 1 to 1½ minutes. Loosen with a spatula and flip, using the spatula and your fingers to help turn the crêpe. Cook until the opposite side is golden brown, reducing the heat to medium low if the crêpe browns too quickly, about 45 seconds. Transfer to a plate and cover with a kitchen towel.

The Standard Ketogenic Diet Plan is the plan that you will learn the most about. When the “Keto Diet” is referenced, this is the plan being referenced. This diet plan consists of a 75% fat intake, 20% protein intake, and 5% carbohydrate intake. As with all diets, you should keep in mind that fat intake is different for everyone, so you can tweak it to your optimal consumption point.

Raw desserts often feature a short list of whole, unprocessed ingredients like nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. They get their sweetness from dried fruit, raw agave nectar, and other natural sweeteners. No refined or artificial sweeteners here! They are no-bake! Great for the warmth of spring or summer, and also for energy conservation, you can avoid cranking up the oven to 350 when making a raw dessert. Most raw desserts are gluten-free and vegan!


Using the peanut paste, you can smear it on apples, bananas, or rice crackers. You can also replace the peanut butter in your favourite Thai noodle sauce with PB2, or use it in its powdered form in baked goods. If you go the baked goods route, make sure to swap out about ¼ of flour the recipe calls for since you’ll be adding extra powder with the PB2.

I don’t recall arguing the idea to continue to eat unhealthy foods. I was describing why we get these cravings. Have you ever seen a dog eat grass? They don’t eat that naturally, and that’s not always to make themselves throw up like most people believe. It’s also a sign of nutrient deficiencies and they are finding ways to fill that gap. (Changing dog food can help stop their habit, because just like humans changing foods, they get what their bodies are missing)

She further explained that having a positive attitude toward food is best for our emotional well-being. “In practice, this would mean feeling freedom to eat a range of food, including so-called ‘unhealthy’ options,” she said. “However, many people require support to be able to do this, particularly if they are using food for emotional regulation purposes ― they are using food for comfort or distraction the way others may use alcohol, shopping and sex. If the person identifies as having a true sugar addiction, striving for complete abstinence is wise.”
These vegan-friendly peanut butter cheese crackers might look familiar. Remember that old Keebler Sandwich Cracker that left your fingers orange and oily. Those highly processed crackers are made with words that are unknown to the English language that will keep the shelf life long but your appetite short. Those may be a quick fix, but there are almost no nutrients in the supermarket version of these cookies. We recommend you give these natural peanut butter cheese crackers a try next time you’re in the mood for something savory with a little sweet!
Well, buckle up, because these healthy desserts are about to take you on an unexpected, yet truly exciting ride. This means we’re not talking about chocolate covered strawberries—as tasty as they are. From potassium-packed chocolate banana bread muffins to “clean” cookie dough (that’s totally safe to eat raw), these amazing healthy desserts prove that healthy eating doesn’t have to mean salads without dressing. What’s more, making healthy choices can mean actually looking forward to what you eat.
PB2 AKA low carb peanut butter, is extremely versatile, so you can use it in all your favourite classic peanut butter keto recipes and more! First things first, unless you’re baking with it or using it in smoothies, you have to add water to it to (typically, two tablespoons of powdered peanut butter to one tablespoon of water). This will create a PB2 paste.
Dr. Jen is hopeful that at some point terms like “guilt-free” will be destigmatized. “Being overweight is linked with low self-esteem, so as our culture slowly shifts from viewing overweight as a problem of lack of motivation, willpower and self-discipline, and rather a symptom of distress and possibly poor mental health, I believe a more compassionate stance will emerge,” she said.
What is it about these foods that make us feel guilty? It’s different for everyone. Generally speaking, American society’s obsession with healthy eating can make it seem “better” to opt for a salad (nutritious, lower in calories, green) rather than a burger (oily, higher in calories, processed). In some cases, people have arbitrarily decided (perhaps after reading a misguided article or two) what foods are “good” or “bad” and feel guilty after eating a “bad’ food as a result of this categorization.
But that’s our food reality these days. Food marketers freely use words like “guilt” and “sin” and “cheat” in the context of food, so what we eat is wrapped up in who we are and the choices we make. We judge food as being either good or bad, and then judge ourselves based on what we choose to eat. If we enjoy salad, we are good, but if we indulge in ice cream, we are bad . . . unless it’s guilt-free ice cream, of course. Doesn’t this sound absurd?
