Online Food Shopping?!

So I did Shoprite from home, ordered online & got it delivered. I recorded my haul to show you some of my keto/low carb options, meal ideas, school lunch items, and then of course the items that are NOT low carb. Also included, whether or not they got my order right…

Take the 10 Day Ketone Challenge With Me!

I’m getting ready to take a 10 day challenge. I’m challenging myself to eat smart for 10 days, each day to drink a packet of premium electrolytes, and 2 ketone drinks each day. Doing this alone could be a struggle, so I’m doing it with a community within Facebook and some of my friends!

Are you ready to do this with me? Check out the info here

I’ll be recording the unboxing for my youtube channel and posting about the challenge on my Instagram. I would love to connect with you in both of those places!

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!

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!
