I decided to explore the Keto diet for a number of reasons. I definitely would have described myself as a critic, admittedly because I was misinformed, and I didn’t fully understand how it worked, or why I should consider it.
Before I started Keto, I was tired, like ALL THE TIME. I just couldn’t seem to get enough rest to lose that lethargic feeling. Within a week of being in ketosis, I had so much energy. Usually by 2 pm, I was done for the day, and would desperately need a nap, but that changed. I slept so much better, too. I woke up feeling rested. Also as someone who suffers from PCOS (symptoms caused by a hormonal imbalance), I would have really bad night sweats. It was like my body couldn’t regulate my temperature. These seemed to disappear as well. Bonus: I was also finally losing weight again after plateauing for over a year!
Keto isn’t for everyone, but it is definitely working for me! If you are considering the Keto diet, make sure to talk to your doctor and/or nutritionist, as well as do your research. There is a lot of bad information out there.
Okay! Onto my favorite keto snack. I actually discovered this by accident as a way of trying to meet my fats quota, but it is absolutely delicious! For a girl who has a sweet tooth, I needed to come up with something that would satisfy that didn’t involve unpleasant sugar substitutes.
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1 Tbsp Coconut Butter
1 Tbsp Almond Butter
1 Svg(about 15) Dark Chocolate Chips (70-80%)
5 Tbsp 35% Heavy Cream (canned coconut milk if you need a dairy-free option)
1) In a small microwave safe bowl, add coconut oil, coconut butter, almond butter, and chocolate chips. Microwave about 40 seconds.
2) Stir until well blended. Add heavy cream and mix well. I used a coffee frother.
3) Place in refrigerator and chill for about 2 hours until solid.
