Keto can be overwhelming, but once you know some basics, you can start simply and incorporate more as you go. Every keto kitchen needs a few staples: the proper fats and oils (coconut oil, avocado oil, grass-fed butter, olive oil for low heat use), mineral salt to replace lost electrolytes (losing potassium, magnesium and salt is the cause of keto flu), non-wheat flour and sweetener that won’t spike insulin if you plan to bake desserts, and a decent blender to make ice cream or veggie smoothies, chop nuts, and to froth up your bulletproof coffee or tea.
The items below are just a sample of many things you may end up trying, but they are products I love and use on a regular basis. It helps to have a visual as you’re out and about shopping so you can recognize them. Or you can check them out on Amazon from the links below. You will not pay one penny more by clicking here, but I would earn a small commission that helps me keep this site free of ads and pop-ups so you can read uninterrupted. All of the products have at least 4 stars and most have been rated thousands of times.
The Keto diet book is extremely thorough and well researched with gorgeous pictures. Both liquid and granular stevia should not spike your insulin like artificial sweeteners. Blender – KetoBook – LiquidStevia Grass-fed Kerrygold butter has the proper balance of omega 3 and 6. Coconut aminos replace soy sauce, which is lower in carbs and because soy can be inflammatory. Grass-FedButter – MineralSalt – GranularSweetener
Rao’s Marinara is the lowest sugar red sauce I’ve found at 4 net carbs per 1/2 cup and is delicious, great on fathead dough pizza or as a sauce for meat and veggies. I have an amazing recipe for Indian flavored sloppy joe’s that uses coconut milk. Rao’sMarina – CoconutMilk – Grass-FedButter
Blender – KetoBook – LiquidStevia – FlaxSeed – Rao’sMarina – CoconutMilk – Grass-FedButter – MineralSalt – GranularSweetener – AlmondFlour – RealVanilla – BoneBroth – CoconutOil – CoconutAminos – Avocado Oil
This pizza crust is fathead dough. That’s where the almond flour comes in. And some cheese and eggs. I had a friend tell me…it’s better than real crust! Start slow, Keto Warriors…if you goof up, do NOT beat yourself up. Just move on and keep trying. Guilt and shame has no place in your new improved way of eating!
What do I do when I am not ketoing? I am an author. Harper Collins bought my first novel in 2010, and I have since put out an electronic version of Escaping The Tiger. Check out these reviews. Would love for you to read it. Cheers, Keto Warriors!
