Almond flour has become staple in my home. After starting low carb diet, I knew that we needed to ban white flour from our home. Almond flour is a great substitute, measure cup to cup to regular flour, full of healthy fats and protein. And baked goods- everything from pancakes, waffles to bread- boy, do smell and taste great. When it comes to brand and price, the one I found on Amazon, works just fine.

Coconut and Avocado oil
When it comes to oil, don’t make any shortcuts. Shoot for the best and healthiest- coconut, butter or avocado oil. You want to avoid all oils rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids and use one rich in saturated fatty acids since they cause less oxidation and thus less inflammation. My favorite is avocado oil from Chosen Food company.

Grass-fed beef, chicken and pork
Know where your food or should I say, meat comes from. Animal protein is the key to sustainable and successful keto lifestyle. Everyone should aim for good quality, grass-fed beef, chicken and pork without adding antibiotics and other weird things which I cannot even pronounce. I recently discovered Butcherbox, great and affordable subscription type meat delivery and their products taste like no other you can buy in the store. After having one of their pork sausages, my husband said that it reminds him of something he ate as a child, growing up in a household where they raised and fed animals themselves. Enough said, check it out!

Bone broth is a must have, not just for keto but for any diet! Made of bones and connective tissue simmered for 10-20 hours with veggies, this liquid gold is full of amino acids, collagen and gelatin. And it is nothing new- our ancestors consumed it a lot and knew its values. Unfortunately modern way of eating dragged us too far from the basics of good nutrition. It is great for kidneys, skin and especially for digestive health, for which latest research claims to be crucial for our immune system and keeping the body in a low inflammatory state. If you don’t want to lose time and money to make your own, indulge in delicious options form Kettle&Fire.

I love making desserts, my son enjoys them all. It is very important for me to use sugar substitute which has little to none impact on his blood sugar. Great option for stable blood sugar is Swerve, combination of erythrol and oligosaccharides which measures cup-for-cup to regular sugar and caramelizes well making it a great substitute for sugar. There are others on the market which are also good for baking like Lakanto, Norbu, Syhrin, all of them are blends of Erythritol but I found Swerve the best for sweet treats.

First 2 to 3 weeks on keto diet it is not unusual to experience some symptoms of carb withdrawal better known as keto flu. The science behind feeling miserable is simple dexydration and loss of electrolytes due to mobilized glucose from glycogen storage and binding water to itself. That’s why it is very important to replenish the loss by drinking at least 2l of water and taking extra dose of magnesium, potassium and natrium. If 2 tsp of salt and potassium and magnesium from food still leave you feel week, fatigued and with muscle cramps, try using liquid electrolytes supplements in your water. Few drops in one glass will boost your energy and ease up keto adaptation.
