The keto diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet which has recently risen in popularity. The premise is that this reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis, where it turns fat into ketones in the liver, which are then used to supply energy to your brain.Many people are already experiencing the benefits that the keto diet can bring - including weight loss, increased energy and reduced blood sugar and insulin levels.
Sticking to a particular way of eating is much easier when you know that you have the staples at hand in your pantry to turn to. It’s not just finding the right ingredients for mealtimes that can get confusing. It’s also snacking, treats or those ‘need-to-grab-a-bite’ moments where we can become unstuck and eat something that is convenient, rather than something that is in line with our preferred dietary choices - like keto or paleo. The best way to start is to clear your pantry of the items that no longer align with your diet choices, or at least put them out-of-sight somewhere they are not within easy reach or eye line.
No overnight soaking, no special nut milk bag with this easy idea. To make nut milk, just blend 1 tablespoon of nut butter with 1 cup of filtered water (you could just shake it up vigorously in a jar too!) If you want to make it truly decadent and creamy, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste and a fresh pitted date. Blitz in a high speed blender and enjoy. Thanks Ceres Organics for this great tip! I love that there is no waste, no packaging and no bad stuff added.
