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!

How to Use the Carb Manager App

Are you on a ketogenic or low carb way of eating? How do you track your MACROS? It’s a common questions. Your MACROS are your proteins, carbs, and fats. To become fat adapted and successfully in ketosis it’s super important that we intake the proper ratios of these elements. If using exogenous ketones, this won’t be as necessary, but either way, tracking your food is needed. So what app should you use? I’ve tried several and the Carb Manager one seems to be the most intuitive and helpful for this way of eating.

However, using the Carb Manager App can be confusing if you don’t have your settings correct. When the settings are correct, the app can be a wonderful tool in whatever meal plan you are following, ketogenic, low carb, low calorie, weight watchers, etc. In this video I explain how to set up your app correctly for your personal goals.

As of the time of this post, this video is RANKED #1 on youtube when searching “Carb Manager”…. THANK YOU!

Crispy Chicken Thigh Recipe

Ever since I was a kid I absolutely loved friend chicken. Something about the crisp with the chicken was just amazing. Fast forward to adulthood where I’ve learned how fried food can be the worst for you 🙂

So, here’s a recipe for Crispy Baked Chicken Thighs, no breading included. This recipe is super easy and is ketogenic and low carb friendly! Bonus, my kids loved them & my husband even took cold leftovers to work and enjoyed them!

Recipe

  • 10 Chicken Thighs, skin on & bone-in
  • 4 TB Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • 21 Seasoning Salute, Trader Joe’s (Italian Seasoning Optional)
  • Cayenne Pepper, optional (not shown in video)

Preheat Oven to 400 degrees F. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels, and on a lined cooking tray coat them with olive oil, skin side up. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, & additional seasonings. Place in oven for about 60 minutes, longer if you like the skin very crispy and the chicken more well done.

Serve with sautéed veggies, mashed cauliflower, zucchini noodles, and more! Use whatever you have in the house and enjoy a simple and easy dinner night at home.
