Now that you’re switching to low carb, you’ve probably found yourself with some sweet tooth cravings. Most fruits and sugary snacks are off limits, but luckily you come across, the much debated about, sweeteners.
When hopping onto the keto diet train, we have to sacrifice all types of starchy foods. Among those comforting carb packed foods, is everyone’s favorite, the potato.
One of the most common questions I’ve noticed, in regards to keto, is whether exercise is needed for results. Having done both, I wanted to share my experience with exercising while on a keto diet.
I remember growing up, bread was a staple part of my diet. Whether it was eggs with toast for breakfast, a sandwich in my school lunch, or a quick PB & J as a snack, I couldn’t go a day without eating bread!
It doesn’t matter where you came from, chances are you’ve grown up on some form of pasta, spaghetti, noodles, vermicelli, you name it! Noodles are such a staple in almost every culture’s diet, but obviously don’t mesh with a keto lifestyle.
After being on the Keto diet for well over a year, I wrote down a few things that I would have liked to done prior to starting my journey. A low carb, high fat diet definitely doesn’t fit into society’s definition of a proper “diet” and it takes some time to adapt to.
I remember growing up, weekends were the only time my parents had time to cook a homemade breakfast. Before I went off to enjoy my Saturday morning cartoons, the house would have the scent of freshly made pancakes.
Let’s be honest, the Keto lifestyle can be expensive at times. When you throw out the carbs, naturally it means there’s more room for meat ($$). Not to mention all those fancy coconut oils, supplements, flour substitutes that you see people raving about can cost a pretty penny as well.
I remember growing up, my family would often dine at Vietnamese restaurants. The one thing that I always had to get, would be a sweet avocado smoothie (sinh to). Nothing beat sipping on a cold, thick avocado shake on a hot summer’s day, just after finishing a meal.
Every now and then, you’re craving a sweet treat. Unfortunately, sugar and Keto don’t mix at all. Lucky for you, I came up with a simple and quick low carb ice cream recipe for you!
