    Keto Diet Guide: How to Start Keto Lifestyle

    What exactly is Keto? Why is it a Fad Diet nowadays? Does it really work? Keto diet is a high-fat (good fats), moderate-protein (meat, poultry, fish), low-carbohydrate (sugar) diet that in medicine is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control epilepsy in children (Wikipedia). It’s a kind of diet that will eventually lead you to losing fat by consuming more fats. How is that possible? The process is called Ketosis in which fat is converted in the liver to ketones, where the “keto” is derived from. Ketones will now be used as fuel by cells in the body.

    Keto Burger Bun

    Keto Burger Bun I have to admit that I’m not really fond of fancy burgers, never been. Those burgers with fancy melting cheese at the top of real seasoned ground beef with veggies and some dressing. Or maybe, I just like those really unhealthy full of synthetic food or whatever you call them. I’m a certified fan of fast foods like Mcdonalds, Jollibee, Burger King, KFC etc. When I started Keto diet, I really miss eating fast food burgers so I learned to create my own burger bun so I won’t deprive myself with my favorite foods. Whenever I ate keto hamburgers, I let myself know that this is my…

    Keto Milk Tea

So, I found a way to create my own homemade Keto Milk Tea that won’t kick me out in Ketosis and also won’t break my wallet while on Keto diet. I’m really a fan of tea.

Also, believe me when I say, it really helps in aiding some digestion issues and also eases that bloated feeling. My personal favorite of tea is green tea,…

    Keto Pinoy Spaghetti

    Keto Pinoy Spaghetti Pasta is one thing that used to be my staple at my high carb regular diet. You know when I’m used to be fat. Because, who doesn’t like pasta? Like, right? Everyone loves pasta. Keto diet has alternative for pasta.  Well, some people used zucchini as substitute for pasta but I’m not really into veggie substitute for my pasta. So, I found out that Shirataki Noodles is made from Konjac  roots and is low carb almost no carb. It is a transparent, odorless and tasteless glass noodle. It is very versatile when used because whatever sauce you mix with it, the noodles will just absorb the sauce…

    Keto Filipino Coconut Macaroon

    Keto Filipino Coconut Macaroon It is a Filipino biscuit snack. It is a sweet, crispy outside but very soft on the inside, chewy with coconut texture kind of dessert. For me, it is more filling than your ordinary biscuits, maybe because of the coconut. Some people doesn’t prefer coconut flavored stuffs but for someone like me who grew up in a place where I could see coconut trees literally around our house, I super love every part of the coconut, it’s flesh, it’s juice. How I miss those two. Unfortunately, they say fresh coconut flesh and juice has high sugar content so Keto dieters, be wary. But, I can make…

    Keto Puto (Filipino Rice Cake)

    Keto Puto (Filipino Rice Cake) Puto is steamed sweet cake that is traditionally made from ground glutinous rice. It could be eaten by itself but some people pair it with some grated fresh coconut, butter with sugar and even dinuguan (blood stew). As a kid, Puto or Filipino rice cake is a staple breakfast in our family, especially after Sunday Mass. My mom would buy us a lot of puto to eat when we get home after mass.  My family likes to attend the early Sunday Mass, as early as 6:00 AM so we often leave home with just warm milk in our stomach. Mom always promises us to have…

    Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie

    Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Notes: You can adjust the amount of erythritol according to your taste. Just be warned that too much erythritol can make your throat hurts. This is from my experience. You can use any powdered salt if you do not have Himalayan salt. I’m using iodized salt before but since I came to know the health benefits of Himalayan pink salt, I opted to use it ever since. You can substitute gelatin powder to xanthan gum, if not available in your area. Just make sure to use low sugar gelatin powder such as the brand Knox. I tried it, also works. 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum= 1…
