2 Delicious Bulletproof Coffee Recipes to Start Your Day

30If you’ve been following a ketogenic diet for some time, then you’ve probably already heard all about the wonder that is Bulletproof Coffee. It’s a staple among keto dieters as a breakfast ‘replacement’, partly due to the fact that it’s easy and convenient (as well as filling), and partly because of its numerous health benefits.

15 Minute Keto Breakfasts

Let’s face it, more often than not – mornings can be hectic. And although breakfast is often described as being the most important meal of the day, it is also the meal that we are most likely to skip. This doesn’t necessarily bode well for ketogenic dieters, as convenience foods such as toast and cereals are definitely off the menu. But having a cooked breakfast consisting of fats and proteins (such as bacon, sausage and eggs for example) isn’t really all that practical if you’re running a tight schedule. Sometimes we just want something quick and easy before we rush off to work, or drag ourselves to the gym. That’s why we’ve come up with a couple of quick and easy keto-friendly breakfast recipes that you can create in fifteen minutes or less! Microwaved Egg Muffin This recipe might sound a little strange, but it actually works surprisingly well – and the mixture can actually be prepped in advance – saving you even more time. If you have a few extra minutes, however, then you …

Low-carb Sushi Recipes

The trouble with sushi is…well, it’s the carbs. It’s certainly not the taste, that’s for sure! While sushi sometimes has the appearance of being a healthy, wholesome dish (it’s fish, grains and vegetables at the end of the day), this is actually pretty far from the truth. In fact, Glamour once released a graphic that highlighted the oh-so-painful truth about the average carb-count in just two sushi rolls. Observe: How insane is that? Two rolls is the equivalent of SIX whole slices of white bread? The results are shocking, but when you consider the dense sticky rice in sushi, it doesn’t seem all that surprising. But, this graphic got us thinking about how we could create a low-carb alternative that still packs all of the flavour of our favourite sushi dishes, but without the horrendous carbohydrate count. Take a look at what we came up with here. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised 🙂 Salmon Maki With Cauliflower Rice This recipe is fantastic if you want to feel like you’re eating something as bulky and filling …

Fruit and The Ketogenic Diet: A Simple Guide

One subject that comes up time and time again on low-carb community message boards is this: ‘can you eat fruit on the keto diet?’ A simple question, but one that doesn’t necessarily get a simple answer. The opinion is pretty much divided among the low-carb diet community. Some people suggest that fruit should be off the menu completely if you want to follow a purely ketogenic diet, whereas others maintain that the consumption of certain types of fruit (in small amounts) is perfectly OK. Here at Ketoship, we tend to agree with the latter. Plenty of our recipes contain small amounts of fruit, and are completely keto-friendly! We believe that the key to making such a restrictive diet a success is by adding as much variety as possible (which is why we try to post tasty, interesting recipes for you guys to enjoy). But if you’re still wondering where fruit sits with a ketogenic diet, we’ve put together this post to help you identify what fruits you can consume, and in what quantities.   Which …

Low-carb Baking: Almond Flour Recipes for The Keto Diet

Who doesn’t love keto friendly baking? As, such – you’ve gotta love almond flour! It’s an absolute life-saver for ketogenic dieters, as well as people who like to go gluten free. This is because it is a genuine, high-quality alternative to wheat flour, and can be used in plenty of baking recipes as a straight substitute. So, in celebration of this awesome flour, here are two delicious recipes if you’re looking to try your hand at some keto-friendly baking. Keto Raspberry Scones Some keto ‘purists’ avoid eating fruit on the ketogenic diet, but others decide to incorporate small amounts of fruit into the diet once they’ve become fully keto adapted, as this allows for much wider variety in what is already a very restrictive way of eating. These scones are delicious with or without the raspberries, so if you’re part of the ‘no fruit’ camp, then just go ahead and leave them out of the recipe. Ingredients Half a cup of rapberries (fresh or frozen) Half a cup of high quality sweetener, such as erythritol …

What to Eat on The Keto Diet, Plus Printable Keto Shopping List

When you’re embarking on any new diet regime, it can be a little daunting. And when it comes to the keto diet, it can be especially tough – because all the normal ‘rules’ of dieting seem to go out of the window. If you’re new to the keto diet, one thing you’ll have to get used to is the fact that fat is now your new best friend. Seems counter-intuitive, right? But when you do a little research, it actually makes perfect sense. The keto diet works by restricting carbohydrate intake, forcing the body into a state of ketosis whereupon fat is burned as the primary source of energy, instead of carbohydrate. So explained very basically, when you don’t eat carbs – you have to burn fat for fuel. If you’re completely new to the ketogenic diet, then take a look at the following posts, just to get yourself up to speed on what this fantastic diet is all about; What is Ketosis?
