Keto Avocado Toast

Screen Shot 2018-04-22 at 9.28.54 AM

If you’re feeling left out of the hipster $15 avocado toast craze, fear not! You can do it Keto Style, for a fraction of the cost, and you won’t be messing with insulin spikes because of all the gluten-loaded bread. Here is what you do:

  • Make fathead dough flatbread.
  • Spread on ripe avocado.
  • Eat.

Okay, the fathead flatbread will take a little prep, but the ripe avocados are a no-brainer. One batch of dough is basically 1.5 cups of mozzarella, 2 T cream cheese melted in microwave, stir in 1 egg and 3/4 C almond flour, knead, roll out on parchment paper and bake at 400 till brown. For more details on making fathead dough, CLICK HERE. The beautiful thing I discovered is that you can freeze the COOKED flatbread, as opposed to freezing raw dough, which is wear the real time saver comes in, as well as the benefit of meal prep.

Fathead dough has so many uses, once you get the basics down. You can make Keto Crackers, or lasagna noodles, or even cinnamon rolls, which I have yet to dry, but plan on. And you can jazz up your avocado with Keto salsa, or Rao’s marinara, and the list goes on. Bon appetite, Keto Warriors!

If you’re new to keto, please poke around the blog. I am pretty much a newbie, so I cook simply and explain the basics so as not to overwhelm. I am THRILLED with how much better I feel on keto: so much energy, reduced depression, drastically reduced body aches and pains, and a slightly smaller butt.

Recommended Keto Book & Meal Plans

Recommended Keto Book
The Keto Diet, by Leanne Vogel

Keto meal plans for $ .26 per day? I’ve had people ask me for meal plans, but I cannot beat the price of one of the industry’s Keto Queens in the world: Leanne Vogel. So take a look at her meal plan deals. It is her first keto book that I love, one comprehensive resource that offers flexibility, humor, and empathy.

I have been doing this keto WOE (way of eating) for about a year, and still consider myself a newbie. Like most keto warriors, I have experienced confusion and conundrums, missteps and masterpiece recipes, and also victories and benefits and experimentation that have convinced this is the way of eating for me. I cannot believe the energy I now have, and I am off 3 out of 4 drugs for depression and fatigue. Friends of mine have taken notice, and I’ve hosted keto sampler parties to spread the good news, and started this blog in January 2018. I am THAT stoked about it. I was outside drinking my vitamin-rich Hibiscus Tea and having some quality me time, so I recorded a few pages as I flipped through the book.

Read Reviews of the Keto book

Click Here To Read Reviews or Buy It. Let me share why I like it. First, I trust it. There are 4 solid pages of sources the author used to write it. I belong to some chat groups online. Most are very supportive, but there are some serious keto police out there nagging, and lots of cases of the blind leading the blind, offering inaccurate advice. Second, it has gorgeous pictures, and lots of them, on every recipe! Third, the organization. There are sidebars and graphs and cross references. Fourth, the options. The author has alternatives for people with varying food tolerances, so dairy free or nightshade free? It’s all covered. And fifth, the author covers the nitty gritty: the keto flu, constipation, bad breath, all of it! The author has a website with so much info as well: Healthful Pursuit.

Creamy Keto Shakes

Look at these luscious green ingredients! Talk about green, with fiber! Creamy shakes or smoothies come from one of nature’s best foods: avocados. You can’t taste it OR the spinach, when blended with full-fat cream, stevia, salt, vanilla and ice chips. Or you can use berries. Or cocoa. Or coconut milk. Or cinnamon. What’s your pleasure?

1 cup crushed ice – 1/2 cup water – 1/4 cup full fat whipping cream – 1 tablespoon stevia – 1/4 avocado – 1/2 teaspoon vanilla – pinch mineral salt

Squeamish about the avocado? Start with cocoa or low-carb fruit you DO like!

You will need a good blender, because of the ice and especially if you are sensitive to texture. My ninja annihilates the spinach so there’s no grit. It comes with that single serving cup you see that has a lid to attach to blender, as well as the full size container for multiple servings. Experiment with varying amounts of the ingredients as you ease into a keto way of eating. Create and explore flavors.

Free yourself from sugar addiction by eating full fat, healthy oils like coconut oil, avocado oil (or the whole avocado), olive oil, ghee, grass-fed butter. Avoid processed foods that have removed the fat and replaced it with sugar. Eating fat does not make you fat. Eating sugar does. Research. Reclaim your life. Don’t fall for products that claim to be solutions. You can do this!
