Seven Tips for Staying Keto this Easter
Whether you’re chasing kids around the house on an early morning Easter Egg hunt or putting together a home-cooked meal, here are some things to remember.
- One cheat meal or cheat Cadbury Cream Egg isn’t going to erase the weeks of healthy keto dieting you’ve already accomplished. Enjoy your treat if you want to and get back on track the next day.
- Check out The Curve for a full course on how to plan for cheat meals and “Danger Zones” when following a keto diet.
- Erythritol in high amounts can be hard to digest, especially for people who don’t usually eat it. Look for recipes that use a combination of Stevia & erythritol to minimize the effects. Your family will thank you.
- Almond flour and coconut flour are perfect low-carb replacements for flour in most dessert recipes.
- Try making a keto version of your favorite Easter recipe so you don’t have to miss out on special traditions.
- Erythritol technically has 4g of carbs per teaspoon, but those carbs aren’t digested, so you can’t count them as zero.
- Most family meals should have some sort of meat and veggie available, so fill up on that so you don’t get hangry and reach for the bag of chips everyone is passing around.
