There are lots of pH balancing foods on a keto/low carb diet, despite it being full of meat which can naturally lower your pH – not a good thing!
The trick to staying in ketosis is not only to avoid all obvious sources of carbohydrate, but also to be careful with your protein intake. If you eat large amounts of meat, eggs and the like, the excess protein will be converted into glucose in the body. This compromises optimal ketosis.
Being a vegetarian prior to our Keto life, I love discovering and making LCHF vegetarian recipes! This has become our favourite “quick meal” that is so delicious and nourishing.
I’m constantly creating and discovering new healthy, low sugar snacks. It’s especially convenient when you need something satisfying to ‘grab and go’. My daughter, Ayla, especially loves these because they are very tasty and fun to eat. We love making them together - it’s simple to prepare and quick to clean up! This recipe makes 50 energy bites that you can store in the freezer and take out when needed.
Enliven you daily hydration this summer with infused vitamin water. Strawberries add a touch of sweetness, while cucumber, mint, and lime make the water taste so refreshing and bright! It’s easy to prepare and you’ll quickly notice your kids or spouse drinking more water than usual!
During my pregnancy, I’ve been craving coconut - the real stuff! Coconut milk, water, meat, and oil. Coconuts are highly nutritious, rich in fiber, and packed with essential vitamins and minerals. It supports the immune system, protects skin from sun exposure, and it’s a great source of fuel for the body by balancing blood sugar and so many other wonderful benefits.
A few weeks ago, my coconut cravings led me to create this rich and creamy breakfast that has become my new fav! Packed with protein and healthy fats, it will keep you satisfied for hours. The best part is how quick it takes to prep the night before and it’s waiting for you the next morning. Perfect for those busy, on-the-go mornings.
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
