The Holy Grail of Ketones?

The Holy Grail of ketones? That’s a big title to live up to. When I received some sample packets in the mail I had no idea what to expect! What in the world would it taste like? And what does NAT even mean?

(Not sure what ketones are or why they’re so beneficial? Read More Here)

NAT TECHNOLOGY

Here’s what Pruvit’s site had to say about the new NAT formula:

“KETO//OS® NAT™ is the ONLY exogenous ketone in the WORLD created through a process of natural fermentation. These Pure Therapeutic Ketones® are MORE bio-identical, meaning they are closer to the natural ketone our bodies produce. KETO//OS® NAT™ is also guaranteed to stay in your body LONGER. Longer lasting = you stay in ketosis longer!”

FLAVOR

Ok, so that sounds pretty great, but now what about this flavor? So I shook it up and tried it for myself. Once shaken the color of the ketone is more of a clouded white color but that makes sense after you taste it. It reminds me of a light malibu rum drink you might experience at a beach bar somewhere with sandy toes and sunscreen on. I immediately fell in love. When I say immediate, I mean immediate. Who wouldn’t?

The NAT fermentation process has made the ketone smoother, lighter, and very enjoyable to drink. Holy Grail of Ketones? I think they’re on to something here.

WHERE TO FIND IT?

Pruvit has not made this flavor a staple yet, it’s brand new and just released from it’s vault. The flavor is available now until March 9th at 11:59pm CT or until sold out. I definitely recommend grabbing it, but if it’s gone by the time you read this, any of the other NAT flavors will work well for you. They’re smoother, cleaner, have a higher absorption rate, and even last longer!

What I Eat In a Day (Smashburger)

I get asked the question all the time, “Ok low carb, but like, then what do you eat all day?” What do I eat all day? Delicious food! That’s what!

For real though, it’s not hard to stay within the Macro allotment for a ketogenic or low carb diet. The way I usually track isn’t strict keto. I do more lazy keto, low carb. You can see how I track my Macros here.

So every now and then I spend a day filming what I eat. Everything. If i have a snack, it’s in there. If I drink something other than water, I include it. This particular day I had an extremely late dinner which forced me to visit Smashburger for some takeout. But even then, I found a keto-friendly option!

Check out my full day of eating keto in the vlog below. Do you have any low carb fast food favorites? Share in the comments!


Keto Pancake Recipe

There is nothing I miss more when doing a strict ketogenic diet than pancakes. Its’ weird because normally I’m not a huge pancake person but I can’t have them and I sit at the diner with my kids, there is something about the way the butter and syrup run down the edges of the pancake. I seriously crave it.

I was determined to figure out how to make delicious keto pancakes so that I could stay in ketosis but still satisfy this major new craving I had. I tried a few different recipes and they were either too thin or too eggy.

BUT! Alas!

I figured it out! This is the way to my heart on a Saturday morning with a cup of coffee. This recipe is easy, quick, and is so good that even my kiddies love it!

Ingredients

  • 4 Eggs
  • 4oz Cream Cheese, room temp
  • 1/2 C Almond Flour
  • 1 TSP Vanilla
  • 1 TSP Baking Powder
  • Salt, dash or pinch, whatever you prefer*

Mix all ingredients together while preheating your greased griddle or skillet to high heat.

Let sit for 2 minutes to thicken.

Make pancakes, flipping when top side is bubbling.

Serve with butter & zero carb syrup if desired.

90 Second Keto Bread?

Have you ever heard of making keto bread in 90 seconds? I was skimming through Pinterest and I found a beautiful picture with a heading that said 90 Second Keto Bread.

I immediately clicked the post to open it and peruse the instructions. Seemed easy enough so I decided to try it. Not only did I attempt to make this recipe but I recorded the whole thing for you guys to watch and decide for yourselves if you want to make the same attempt.

So hit or miss? What do you think? Will you be trying it? Do you have a delicious go to recipe for a bread-like item that’s Keto friendly? I would love for you to share it in the comments below!

Valentines Day Ketone Special

It’s time for a special ketone experience, HOLIDAY VERSION! This special holiday version is perfect for 5 days, drinking one ketone a day, and will kick those chocolate and candy cravings you may have during the sweet month of February!


This time last year I had no idea that how I was feeling could easily be altered. How was I feeling? I was feeling tired. All. The. Time. Seriously, I needed constant naps and was always fighting exhaustion. I was feeling heavy. I guess bloated would be a good way to describe it? Just heavy and lousy and not like myself. My clothes weren’t fitting the way I liked, my skin wasn’t doing that great, and overall I just wasn’t happy with how I felt.

Then I saw a Facebook post from my sister in law. She introduced me to ketones (a drink that supplies your body with ketones & puts you into ketosis) and a different lifestyle that I just gravitated towards. I did all the research. I watched all the videos. I read all the articles. I learned quickly and dove right in. Now a year later I can say I am SO glad that I did!

In addition to losing 40lbs (and KEEPING IT OFF!), the exhaustion has gone away. I don’t need that afternoon nap or the 5 cups of coffee. Don’t get me wrong I still love my coffee, but it doesn’t drive me anymore. I’ve kicked bad habits, created better cravings, and was able to buy new jeans.

The science behind exogenous ketones makes total sense to me. The science behind a ketogenic way of eating makes total sense to me. When I put them together it was like magic. Over 2018 I did not stay in a strict keto way of eating. I slowly added back in items  that I love, like pastas, potatoes, and pizza. Yet, I’ve been able to maintain because of a few things; altered eating habits, use of ketones & keto kreme, and periodic intermittent fasting.

So, yes, I want to share all of this with you because I’ve experienced it. I know it works. I know the changes are worth it. I’ve put together a special experience pack this month for those of you who are looking to try something new that could very well change your year like it did mine in 2018.


Can you explain the science in a simple way?

Absolutely! Watch this 4 minute video 🙂
