Almond Flour

While pursuing a ketogenic diet many people often feel deprived, unsatisfied, and sometimes just tired of the same old meals. Well, almond flour has absolutely saved my life when it comes to spicing things up in the kitchen. I can practically make anything that I am craving! From cakes, breads, chicken tenders, cookies, and even pizza! Almond flour is a simple ingredient made from almonds that can replace old fashioned flour. This particular brand only contains about 3 net carbs per serving, 6 grams of protein, and a whopping 14 grams of fat. This is a perfect macro breakdown for a ketogenic lifestyle and should definitely be incorporated into your daily diet!

Macadamia Nuts

Macadamia Nuts are by far one of the best keto snacks that you can have due to the fact that they are very high fat and one of the lowest net-carb nut that you can find! The macadamia nut has about 24 grams of fat, 2 grams of protein, and only about 2 net carbs per serving! Macadamia nuts are perfect when you are lacking in your fat for the day, they are also great to eat in the morning to get your body burning fat as soon as you wake up! Overall, macadamia nuts are just perfect and they should be in EVERYONE’S pantry!

QUEST Protein Chips

IMG_1068

Quest Protein Chips are one of my most favorite snacks when I am just craving something crunchy. They come in a variety of different flavors and they range from about 2-5 grams of net carbs per bag! Personally, I would not go overboard with eating a few bags of these in one sitting because they are not optimal on a ketogenic diet due to the fact that they are very high in protein and low in fats! On the contrary, they are a perfect low carb snack to satisfy your chip cravings. Personally, my two favorite flavors would have to be the BBQ flavored and the nacho cheese flavored (tortilla style)!

MCT Oil

You may ask, what is MCT oil? Well, MCT oil also known as medium-chain triglycerides are a type of fat found in coconut oil. Medium-chain triglycerides are processed in the body differently than long-chain triglycerides, unlike other fats they go straight from the gut to the liver. From here, they are used as a source of energy or turned into ketones which can be extremely beneficial to someone on the keto diet. MCT oil is normally targeted towards people who want to lose weight, want mental clarity, or who want to boost their endurance during a workout. But, MCT Oil is especially essential in a ketogenic diet due to the fact that this oil is very high in fat and easy to use in coffee or smoothies. Adding MCT oil to your diet can help you reach your daily calorie intake, making sure that your intake in fats is high enough to get the most out of the ketogenic diet.

Miracle Noodles

This lovely creation has zero, I repeat ZERO net carbs. They come in many different pasta shapes such as fettuccini, angel hair, and ziti. There are also different flavors such as spinach and garlic and herb. This is a staple in the keto diet and I highly recommend picking up a pack or two of them to add to your arsenal of keto goodies! My absolute favorite thing about this product is the ease of making them, they seriously take 2 minutes to cook in boiling water and only a minute or two to dry (the drying process is necessary due to the ingredients in these opposed to regular noodles). My favorite combination is pairing these with some low carb alfredo sauce along with shrimp or chicken. You can let your imagination run wild with this product!
