- Blending for 20-30 seconds adds lots of air for fluffy texture.
- Mineral salt brings out the flavor. Always add mineral salt. You need more minerals on the keto diet.
- Use all-natural peanut butter and organic dairy for the best quality ingredients. It's ok to invest a little extra money in your health!
- *Use 1/2 cup of full fat coconut milk as an alternative to dairy. You can also try my homemade Coconut Yogurt for a probiotic ingredient.

You are more likely to stick with a diet and lose weight when you have recipes that fit your lifestyle. You don't always have to cook an elaborate keto meal. Rather, you need a few favorite recipes that fit your lifestyle. My chocolate peanut butter milkshake is a quick and tasty meal for when you are busy or too tired to cook. Another quick and easy recipe is my Keto Chocolate Avocado Smoothie.
Most people believe you need a diverse array of foods to be healthy. The common understanding is that a little bit of everything is a balanced diet. This is not always true! Your body is happy and healthy when it is fed in a predictable way with staple foods. If you want to lose weight, you need to stick with a predictable eating pattern of select foods. For example, I mostly eat eggs, dairy, leafy greens, herbs, nuts, seeds, seasonal veggies, and ethically raised meat. My body has acclimated to these nutritionally dense foods and my eating pattern is consistent. My first meal is at 11:00 AM and my last meal is at 7:00 PM.

Peanut butter is a great ingredient to keep in the pantry for extended use. The only thing you need to watch out for is added sugars and preservatives. When you look at the ingredients, it should only say "peanuts." A little bit of salt is fine too. For people who are allergic to nuts, Sunflower Butter is a great alternative. If you would like to try another peanut butter recipe, you need to taste my Keto Peanut Butter Mousse!
Cocoa nibs are one of the highest sources of magnesium in a whole food. Magnesium is an essential mineral involved in numerous biochemical reactions. It is involved in blood glucose regulation, muscle/nerve function, energy production, and much more. It is one of the few vitamins/minerals that I recommend for daily supplementation. Take Magnesium Citrate, because it is better absorbed into the body when combined with citric acid. You could also just eat a couple Dark Chocolate Truffles for dessert!
Nutritional yeast is a probiotic ingredient with lots of B vitamins. It's a staple ingredient in my pantry, which I keep next to the salt and pepper. Use it like a garnish on almost every keto meal. Add a tablespoon to your peanut butter milkshake or sprinkle it on a salad like parmesan cheese. It's a keto approved ingredient at only 1 net carb per tablespoon.
Redmond Real Salt is my go to salt for the keto diet. It is the most mineral-rich salt that I have come across, and it tastes great! It comes from ancient oceans in Utah with no risk of pollution or plastics. You can click here for a full report of the mineral content in Redmond Real Salt. Other mineral dense salts are Himalayan Salt and Celtic Sea Salt. I always have these three salts on my dinner table.
