HOW TO KEEP KETO SIMPLE

Dec 10, 2018
A ketogenic diet might seem overwhelming if you’re just starting out, but don’t worry. The more you learn, the easier it gets—and thankfully, it can actually be quite simple from there. Whether you’re on a budget or just feeling overwhelmed, there are several ways that you can keep it simple on a keto diet!
 
First, let’s talk for a second about what eating keto really means.
 
Basics of the Keto Diet
The purpose of the ketogenic diet is to put the body into a state of ketosis: burning fat for energy rather than burning carbs. Ketosis is the sweet spot for the body. It can help you burn fat, drop weight, prevent brain fog, sleep better, and a host of other benefits!
 
In order to induce ketosis in the body, we must either 1) be starving so that the body turns to fat stores for energy or 2) be eating a strict diet that is high fat, moderate protein, low carb 3) drinking Keto Max/ Keto Nat which puts you into ketosis in 30-60 minutes. ( I...

IS KETO A FAD? WHAT CAN KETONES DO FOR YOU?

Dec 01, 2018
I always smile when someone says that the keto diet or the keto lifestyle is a new thing or even a trend or fad because it's actually been around at least since the 1920’s, not as a fat burning/ weight loss tool but as therapeutic method for managing epilepsy and other neurological seizure disorders. Yep- that is how it come about! So cool right? 
 
 
In more recent times, a growing number of studies show that the ketogenic diet and now the use of exogenous ketones which I use  have many other health benefits from slowing the growth of cancer to helping with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease to weigh tloss and more!!!!! Both using the keto diet and/or drinking ketones are also helpful in managing diabetes and other metabolic disorders!!
 
A lower carb, higher fat and moderate protein diet and ketones in general are good not just for the body but also the brain! I love that we are just starting to scratch the surface on all of the...

KETO KRUNCH

Nov 29, 2018

Years past I would make "puppy chow" or the other name was "muddy buddies". Did you ever make that? It's made with chex mix, chocolate chips, peanut butter, powdered sugar and a few other things. As good as it was, it was filled with sugar and this girl tries her best to avoid sugar when possible. So I discovered a better, more keto-friendly, low carb and low sugar version of this delicious treat! It's called Keto Krunch! 

The recipe is below! 

I recommend doubling it and sharing it with friends! You can put them in cute containers, festive boxes or even mason jars for storage or for a fun presentation! 

KETO KRUNCH

Ingredients:

4 cups plain pork rinds ( i prefer the oven baked ones by Epic) 

1/2 cup natural peanut butter

1/4 cup butter

3 Tablespoons cocoa powder

1/8 tsp vanilla

2 Tablespoons Swerve powdered sweetener

KETO GIRL HOLIDAY MUSIC MIX

Nov 29, 2018

I don't know about you but I LOVE this time of year! I love the decorations, the food, the sweets ( it's about balance y'all), giving gifts, the wrapping, the tree, time with family and friends and of course- the music! 

I took a poll on Facebook today asking everyone's favorite holiday carols and songs so I compiled a mix of my favs plus the responses I got and made a special playlist over on Spotify! Speaking of Spotify- a subscription is a great gift idea! We have a family subscription and we all love it!

The holiday music mix I made is a little traditional with some pop ( hello N'Sync and Backstreet Boys- sorry, I couldn't resist :) as well as some traditional ( aaaah Bing Crosby and David Bowie- they get me every time with their version of "The Little Drummer Boy") 

 Here is the link to play and download over on Spotify:

Staying Keto On The Go

Nov 26, 2018

Life is busy for here at our house- especially this time of year! We’ve got things to do and Pure Therapeutic Ketones to share. And let's be real here-when cooking or meal prepping isn’t convenient, food on the go is. No one is invincible to the convenience of quick service food, but grabbing a quick bite doesn’t have to sabotage your diet!  I am here to give you some super helpful tips to choosing low carb/ keto-friendly dishes while eating out!

Mexican Food

Tacos are a way of life around  but dang it- tortillas are not low carb or part of the keto life. Bowls & salads with grilled steak, chicken, or shrimp are a great option! Add tomatillo-red, sour cream, guacamole (yes- we know it’s extra, but you are worth it :), cheese, and maybe a light vinaigrette. Make sure to skip rice, beans, or tortillas. If you smile real big and ask nicely, they might whip up a cheese tortilla shell for you! Have you tried one?
