Paleo-Ketogenic Breakfast and Snack Ideas

Paleo-keto Breakfast and Snacks BLOG

Some of the most common questions I get asked when people are considering the ketogenic diet is "What can I have for breakfast?" and "Which snacks can I eat?".

I have compiled a list of breakfast and snack ideas which I have enjoyed since I made my transition to Keto at the start of 2017. I hope these will inspire you.

You might notice, though, that after a while on this diet you will no longer be hungry in the morning and will be able to start fasting overnight like I do. Keto has certainly cured my munchies, I no longer need to eat every couple of hours like I used to and fast daily for 14 to 16 hours.

Recipe for Fat Head, Keto Pizza & Toppings

Can you really have a movie night without a pizza? For months after I had transitioned to keto, I didn’t have any pizza. The crusts are loaded with grains which just don’t work for the ketogenic diet, so I was very happy when I stumbled upon this recipe. When I tasted it for the first time I almost cried. This recipe is flop-proof and tastes so good!Continue reading

How to set up a macro tracking app for your ketogenic diet, part 2

Keto macros
This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Getting Started on Keto

The thought of tracking macros scares many people into delaying their keto journey, but it’s really not as complicated at it might seem. There are some great tools available that make the whole process so easy.

Also, some people are not aware that you do not need to calculate your macros, you can just wing it and wait for ketosis and fat adaption to kick in. It might just require more patience and it certainly depends on the results you’re after and the results you’re getting from your chosen method.

If your goal with keto is to lose weight, then you could start losing in your first week, simply by switching to the keto approved food list! I would recommend, however, that if you’re aiming to treat ME/CFS or any other chronic illness, like I am, that you track from the start to make sure you become fat adapted as quickly as possible because that is where the ‘magic’ happens.

In Part 1 of this series, we looked at setting goals and calculating your macros. In this second part, we will look at how you can easily track your macros on a daily basis using some very handy apps. I will show you how to set them up. It is way easier than it seems at first!

Part 3 will be about which foods to eat and then in Part 4 I’ll explain how to plan your meals using these tools so you take all the guesswork out of staying within your macro limits.Continue reading
