Top 10 Keto Diet Must Haves

Thinking about doing the Keto diet, but don’t know where to start? No worries! I have been doing the diet for over a year now, have successfully kept 82 pounds off AND I just so happen to have a lot of resources to get your started! You can get started by checking out this post, this post and this post. Once you have an idea of where to start with the Keto diet, you will want to move on to the list below of the top 10 Keto diet must haves!

Top 10 Keto Diet Must Haves

Getting started with a diet like this, you are probably a little freaked out. I mean, it goes against everything that has been drilled into our head about what we should be eating. If this sounds like you, then you are probably thinking, “I need books to tell me what to eat” and “I need to know if I am in Ketosis or not”. If this sounds like you, then these products should be in your Amazon cart right now!

Once you have your ketone strips to see if you are in ketosis and your necessary cookbooks, you will want to have quick and easy snacks that you can grab for those on the go moments. Since you’re already adding stuff to your Amazon cart, you might as well add these items too!

Getting your fat in on the Keto diet can be rough at first. Making fat bombs, like these chocolate sunbutter fat bombs, do help (be sure to pick up the cookbook above for more fat bomb ideas). Another thing you will want to make are Keto approved Gummy Bears! To make either of the things mentioned above, you will need the following silicone molds.

The last item you MUST add to your shopping cart are these amazing, portion control baggies! If you like nuts, but don’t want to over eat them (the carbs will add up quickly), then pre-fill these bags for quick and easy, grab and go snacks!

There you have it! The top 10 Keto diet must haves!

Chocolate SunButter Keto Fat Bombs

Being on the Keto diet for a little over a year has been life changing for me in so many ways. Not only has my body changed drastically in a little over a year (see those changes here), but my relationship with food has done a complete 180, which is a very good since I was a huge emotional eater before. Now food is just a means to fuel my body. Nothing more, nothing less. One thing that is a little difficult, at times, is getting enough fat in. That’s where my Chocolate SunButter fat bombs come in handy!

Chocolate SunButter Fat Bomb Recipe

Chocolate SunButter

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Place all of your ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. I prefer to use a glass 2-cup measuring cup (like thischocolate sunbutter).
  2. Melt in the microwave in 30-second increments. Do not try to speed things up and put it in for a minute. Trust me…it makes a mess! After two 30-second increments, stir thoroughly. You may need to put it in for a few more 30-second increments. The SunButter takes a bit to melt!
  3. Once everything is melted and mixed well, pour into your silicone mold and freeze for at least an hour.

*I prefer SunButter over any nut butter. If you prefer to use almond butter or cashew butter, go for it!

They are pretty good! You will notice that I do not list any of the macro information. I do this because we all use different ingredients and I don’t want to tell you that a serving of this has 19 grams fat when you used a different nut butter and it has more or less than that. So with any recipe you get off the internet, ALWAYS check the macros yourself.

For your convenience, I listed the items I use to make this recipe below. you can pick them up on Amazon and be making these delicious fat bombs this weekend!

Keto Game Day Recipes

Keto game day

With any diet, planning is key. Like I said, I’ve been on the Keto diet for an entire year. In that time, I have lost over 80 lbs. I wouldn’t have lost that weight if I didn’t plan. I also never had a “cheat day” because with the Keto diet, you don’t need a cheat day! I’ve put together a round-up of recipes that you will love (and so will your non-Keto friends) that are perfect for your Game Day party!

Most Super Bowl watching parties that I’ve been to over the years have had chili. On any low carb diet, Keto included, chili is not exactly on plan. But that’s OK! This Chorizo Chicken Soup recipe will knock the socks off all your guests and no one will miss the chili!

10 Amazing Keto Recipes

Early on in 2016, I made one heck of a lifestyle change. I decided to drastically change the way I was eating. Going from eating WAY too many carbs and sugar to eating very low carb and zero sugar was difficult at first. Obviously any drastic change in a person’s diet would be difficult, but once I got over the hump, following the Keto diet was the best decision I ever made. Over the course of the past year, I have come across a lot of really great Keto recipes. Below are the top 10 Keto recipes!

10 Amazing Keto Recipes

If you aren’t familiar with what the Keto diet is, it’s a way of eating that is high fat, moderate protein and very low carbs. For instance, I only eat 20 total carbs a day. Like any new lifestyle change, it’s a little stressful in the beginning trying to figure out to eat. Well stress no more! I put together the following list must try keto recipes!

Pro tip…pick up this silicone mat. It is AWESOME to cook chicken on. Just trust me!
