This is a really easy and tasty recipe that is ketogenic, anti-inflammatory and fat burning.  This is loaded with healthy fats, protein and fiber.  It is super easy to make and you will love the flavor.

This is perfect for busy families with growing kids who seem to be hungry all the time.  Keep these in your fridge and let your family help themselves.  They are very calorie dense and low-carb, so that combination helps to balance our hormones and produce a natural sense of satiety.

I enjoy using the stevia and the salt helps to drown out any bitter aftertaste from the stevia, if you were concerned about that.  It is also a great idea to increase your mineral intake when doing a low-carb diet because you tend to excrete more sodium on low-carb, ketogenic diets.  Adding small amounts of Himalayan salt to your foods will improve the flavor and provide the minerals you need.

The Lily’s chocolate chips are great because they are sugar-free and flavored with stevia and erythritol.  Most people do very well with these sweeteners.  For me, sugar alcohols do not seem to agree with my digestive tract and I end up with extra gas.  I prefer using pure cacao nibs like these here

For protein, I love the Bone Broth protein.  You can try the vanilla or the Fit Muscle Booster Bone Broth protein which has the vanilla flavor but has added ashwaghanda to help balance adrenal function and support healthy DHEA levels.  By boosting DHEA levels naturally, this will help both men and women improve their lean body mass and have more energy.

      Hey Deb,

      They have a scooper in the protein powder cannister.

    I notice most of your recipes are Megan Kelly’s – should we just check out her blog?

      Good question Merle!

      For a lot of the recipes I like to make little changes that are more in line with my dietary strategies. I also put in some commentary that will sometimes address substitutions that can be made for certain people depending on their health situation so that is the difference. I hope that helps!
