This morning as I was waking up I was thinking about different breakfast items that I might be able to make Keto friendly. While I love my keto biscuit recipe, sausage ball puffs, and pancakes, I wanted to try something different today. Then, I remembered my 90 Second Bread Recipe and thought surely I could change it up to make a Keto French Toast.
Fortunately, you can still have alcohol on a low-carb diet ― you just have to be careful. Beer is basically off limits and wine is iffy, so the rule is to stick to clear liquors. When looking for mixers, you must also look for drinks low in carbs. This recipe for a root beer float includes heavy whipping cream to mimic ice cream and get some extra fats into your system. When you’re on keto, alcohol hits you quicker, so drink in moderation! Serves 1. 8 oz. diet root beer4 oz. heavy whipping cream1 oz. whipped cream vodkaIce Combine all ingredients in a drink shaker or pour straight into a cup and stir. Drink will automatically foam like any float.
This gluten-free bread recipe is a tried-and-true way to make a super nutritious and tasty treat with ingredients that conform to the Whole Life Challenge standards. Which is not to say you should be making it all the time. But it’s great for an occasional treat, as a post-workout snack for active individuals, or as something to bring to the holiday table.
Unsurprisingly, the results showed that nothing had happened to the weight of the women receiving calcium or the placebo. However, the group which took the multivitamin lost more weight – about 3 kg more – and improved their health markers. Among other things, their basal metabolic rate (the rate at which the body burns calories when at rest) increased.
These breakfast egg muffins from Hurry The Food Up just might be the ultimate meal prep food. They take only 25 minutes to throw together, and three muffins provides 20 grams of protein for under 300 calories. You can also change up your mix-ins with different cheeses, vegetables, and seasonings. Freeze them for later or keep them in your fridge for the week — chances are, it won't be long before you need to make another batch.
Hi Donna, as you have used the same chocolate as me I’ve done some research now. The reason may be that you need to heat the chocolate slowly and gently. Heating it too quickly and too much can cause the cocoa butter and cocoa to separate. I’ve added this info to the recipe and really hope you’ll try the recipe again. By the way, have you tried the Montezuma 100% chocolate with orange nibs? It’s the best tasting unsweetened chocolate ever (it actually tastes great all on its own) and I bet it would be amazing in this cake. Wishing you a happy Christmas, despite the mishap with the cake, and thank you for supporting Sugar Free Londoner.
Nuts, the second food to watch, contain a fair amount of carbohydrate, and it’s very easy to unwittingly scarf down large quantities. Cashew nuts are among the worst carb-wise – you’ll find that they contain around 20% carbohydrate by weight. For someone following a strict keto diet with a 20 grams of carbs per day allowance, this means that consuming 100 grams (which happens in a flash!) will have filled their daily quota. Peanuts tend to be around 10-15% carbohydrate – not putting them in the clear either.
This could be because the body increases insulin secretion in anticipation that sugar will appear in the blood. When this doesn’t happen, blood sugar drops and hunger increases. Whether this chain of events regularly takes place is somewhat unclear. Something odd happened when I tested Pepsi Max though, and there are well-designed studies showing increased insulin when using artificial sweeteners.
Going keto might compel you to start experimenting with ingredients you would have never used otherwise. These vegan treats, for example, are held together with aquafaba—the liquid from a can of chickpeas, believe it or not. Still, the shredded coconut and the smooth chocolate on the bottom make them taste like the mouthwatering macaroons you know and love.
