Beginners Guide to Keto

Have you been hearing about the keto/ketogenic diet? Interested but not sure what it’s really all about? The ketogenic diet is a WOE (way of eating) that puts your body into ketosis. Ketosis is when your body is in a state of burning fat instead of burning glucose (sugar, carbs). When your body is in this state it will burn the fat you’re eating plus the stored fat in your body.

How do you get your body into that state? By eating a high fat low carb diet. You restrict your carb intake, eat moderate protein, and a high amount of healthy fats.

How to start? I suggest downloading an food log app to help you calculate your MACROS (fat, protein, & net carbs). I use CARB MANAGER. Start to educate yourself on what foods are keto approved and which ones aren’t. You can even watch some of my videos that follow what I eat throughout an entire day. The hardest part is making the decision to get started, but once you do, you’ll be so thankful that you did.

Sausage & Peppers | Keto & Low Carb

Sausage & Peppers are delicious! Usually they are covered in sugary marinara sauce and can increase your carb intake way more than you’d like. Here’s an idea on how to deconstruct that idea and make a ketogenic, low carb friendly dish of sausage and peppers.
______________________

Preheat Oven to 375
In a casserole dish place 12 italian sausage links.
Cover with: 3 sliced bell peppers, 1 sliced yellow onion, chopped garlic, & cherry tomatoes.
Sprinkle sea salt & basil over the entire dish.
Drizzle olive oil and mix.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 90 minutes.

Bacon Cheddar Biscuits | Keto Friendly

Who doesn’t love a good biscuit?! Just because you’re eating a low carb or ketogenic diet doesn’t mean you have to go without. Using almond flour, here’s a recipe for Bacon Cheddar Biscuits. They are even better when warmed up the next day. I may or may not even add some butter right on top when eating them.

MACROS per Biscuit
Fat | 79.4%
Protein | 17.5%
Carbs | 3.1%

2C Almond Flour
