How to make keto food recipes using the right ingredients
The most important thing when starting keto is to get the right recipe, says Andrew Hockett, author of Ketogenic Dieting and founder of the Ketogenic Chef website.
That means having the right spices, the right ratio of fats and protein and what to add to the mix.
“The recipe will dictate the final taste, and there are some very simple steps that can be taken to make the food taste fantastic,” he says.
To start keto, Hocket recommends following a few simple guidelines: start out by cooking a keto meal that’s low in carbs, and use the right fats and proteins, and you should see improvements in your overall health and mood.
To make a ketogenic meal, simply add a few keto-friendly ingredients to a bowl of a mix of coconut oil, coconut milk and some chopped fresh fruit, such as mango or pineapple.
Mix until you reach a consistency that you like.
Then add a spoonful of coconut butter to a food processor or blender, and pulse until the mixture is smooth.
Then pour the mixture into a shallow bowl, cover and leave in the fridge for about 10 to 15 minutes.
If you want a little extra kick, add some cinnamon or a little nutmeg to the mixture to add a little spice.
It’s not necessary to add the coconut oil to the dish before serving, but it’s best to do so before the final meal is served.
If your food has been stored in the freezer, it can be stored in a large bowl with a lid and let it thaw in the refrigerator.
When the time comes, mix the mixture together in a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients, and then serve with your favourite keto salad.
To keep keto foods from turning rancid, they can be refrigerated for up to a week, and reheated at room temperature.
This way, they’ll keep longer than the foods that are traditionally made with ice cream.
