I have gotten requests for a great homemade, keto alfredo sauce. The major store bought brands contain modified corn starch and soybean or canola oil. These are genetically modified (GMO) ingredients that are highly inflammatory and bad for the body.
Additionally, these major brands use commercially raised dairy products that are full of anti-biotics, hormones and other chemicals. It is a big inflammatory soup that will overload your liver and cause cellular damage and hormone dysfunction if you are eating this regularly.
Even the organic alfredo sauces and seasoning mixes if you are making your own contain maltodextrin and potato starch as 2 of the top ingredients and one tsp has 7 grams of net carbs in it. Fortunately, this recipe has none of those and is low-carb and high in healthy fats that fit into the ketogenic nutrition profile.
I enjoy having this with keto pasta from either Miracle Noodles, zucchini noodles or Palmini noodles. The miracle noodles are made out of Shirataki, which is a sea vegetable that is rich in the prebiotic glucomannon and these have a great texture and will not impact your blood sugar levels.
The zucchini noodles are also low-carb and can be purchased fresh here or you can make them yourself and this is a great recipe. The Palmini noodles are made out of Heart of Palm which is another fantastic low-carb vegetable that is rich in prebiotic fiber.
