Michelle, I second Libby’s remarks about “The fear of saturated fat is so old fashioned and outdated. Research shows saturated fat is healthy, stable and protective.”. In addition to her link, get a used copy (or new) of Nora Gedgaudas’s book Primal Body Primal Mind. Dr. Eric Berg has put out many youtube videos about Keto and intermittent fasting. Search his name with weight, or keto, or intermittent fasting, or phytic acid. They are some interesting videos.

I made this because we are on a strict low carb diet and it is extremely hard to find satisfying snacks or desserts. OMG this is some good cheesecake!!! I used xylitol and tweaked the recipe just a little, I added a little more vanilla, a pinch of salt to the filling and the crust, I also added a bit of lime juice instead of lemon. We felt guilty after eating it because it just does not taste like a “diet” cheesecake. My only complaint is that it did not set completely solid so it’s a little more soft and creamy than I prefer. I think I need to adjust the temp on my oven so I can cook it longer next time. This will be my go to cheesecake recipe from now on.

•  Humans unlike true carnivores do not have fangs to tear the flesh while the prey is walking.  We need to marinate it to tenderize and so on which basically indicates we are not carnivore and that eating meat is an acquired taste.  Humans are infatuated with the taste of meat and for long time now we have believed that eating meat is legitimate, a mistake with horrible consequences for animals and us.

Other herbs like dried rosemary, sweet basil and oregano contain polyphenols that enhance organic acid synthesis by improving the gut flora (4). Organic acids are key to maintain bowel health and aid in nutrient absorption. These herbs destroy harmful bacteria and provide antioxidant, anti-viral and anti-fungal benefits to help you maintain a strong immune system (5).
Many people love the ketogenic diet because it keeps them satiated for longer periods of time. As a result, snacking no longer becomes a necessity. However, snacking regularly is a habit that many people coming from a Standard American Diet have developed. Although you may not be truly hungry, you may still find yourself reaching for an afternoon snack to satisfy mental cravings. Instead of popcorn or chips, nuts are a great keto-friendly alternative.
Vitamin C is an important water-soluble vitamin we need for the biosynthesis of collagen, certain proteins, and neurotransmitters. Your brain also heavily relies on vitamin C for antioxidant defense. Adults generally need around 75-120 mg of vitamin C daily to maintain these functions [3]. The problem with vitamin C is that it degrades when exposed to heat and light, so unlike fruit, cooked vegetables are not the best source of this nutrient.

Once the mixture is properly mixed, cover with a small section of cheesecloth or any other air permitting material. This will let the bacteria inside the jar to release carbon dioxide as it ferments the naturally occurring sugars in the mixture. If you use the lid that comes with the jar and its airtight, be prepared for a sonic boom when you open the container because the fermentation process will pressurize the contents inside. – Trust me, it’s not fun!.
