Unless you’ve been living under a rock, chances are you’ve heard the keto word being thrown around of late.
But what actually is the keto diet?
After getting a lot of requests for keto options, we decided to dive into this whole thing and thought we’d share our take on it all
Our guide to Keto
Which brings us to the diet..
The whole notion of the ketogenic diet, is to remain in a state of ketosis where by fat is the primary fuel source, generally it is a high-fat, moderate-protein, low-carb diet.
Benefits of the diet/being in ketosis:
~ A fat-burning state is more stable than swinging between high and low blood sugar levels and in doing so effectively curbs most cravings
~ Our brains are 60% fat ~ burning fat as fuel, provides the brain with efficient energy
~ Ketones produced through ketosis have been shown to preserve brain energy levels and as well as acting as strong anti-inflammatories for those with auto-immune and inflammatory diseases.
What we love about the keto diet
Our issues with the keto diet
We think ketosis is great, and in our personal experience we have experienced some incredible mental clarity from being in this state (like serious brain power!) Having said that we’re all about a healthy lifestyle that can be a lifelong thing, and personally for us we find the diet a little too restrictive and not sustainable for our every day life.
But we do absolutely love nibbling on our Fudgy PB Cacao bar, and have found it to be a serious hunger fighting, nutrient dense hit that fuels our mind and body through the busiest of days, it’s been a game changer especially when we’re on the run.
It’s no secrets that we love healthy fats, and the density of fats from this one really does keep us powering.
Whether you enjoy a keto snack as part of a ketogenic diet or simply as a snack to be reckoned with, that’s completely up to you. We’re so excited to hear how it slips into your day.
We want to make it really clear that we are real food producers, and serious health nuts, but we are by no means health professionals nor do we pretend to be.
Our mission is to educate and create conversations around real food, as we truly believe knowledge is power, and nothing makes us happier than seeing a healthier more empowered you!
