Maya, OMG this was soooo delicious! My hubby was so impressed he said we need to keep it around all the time…I was thinking I need to make it more often so I can perfect it (wink, wink). I did buy a sugar free raspberry jam for the topping because I couldn’t “find” your recipe, then I read the entire recipe all the way through and VIOLA there it was. I’ll make that one next time.
Thank you, Erica. Sorry, mascarpone won’t work in a baked cheesecake – it melts into a butter-like consistency when heated. Also, just so you know, mascarpone does not have 0 carbs. Manufacturers get away with writing 0 because they can round down if it’s less than 1 gram per serving. Mascarpone has 0.3 grams carbs per tablespoon, and cream cheese has 0.8 grams per tablespoon.
Mainly for health reasons, avoid soy products apart from a few non-GMO fermented products which are known for their health benefits. Also avoid wheat gluten which may be used in low-carb foods. When you give up bread, you shouldn't eat any part of it. Beware of BPA-lined cans. If possible, use naturally BPA-free packaging like glass jars or make your own ingredients such as ghee, ketchup, coconut milk or mayonnaise. BPA has been linked to many negative health effects such as impaired thyroid function and cancer. Other additives to avoid: carrageenan (e.g. almond milk products), MSG (e.g. in some whey protein products) and sulfites (e.g. in dried fruits, gelatin).
All grains, even whole meal (wheat, rye, oats, corn, barley, millet, bulgur, sorghum, rice, amaranth, buckwheat, sprouted grains), quinoa and white potatoes. this includes all products made from grains (pasta, bread, pizza, cookies, crackers, etc.) sugar and sweets (table sugar, HFCS, agave syrup, ice creams, cakes, sweet puddings and sugary soft-drinks).
The meat replacement protein called Quorn is a sort of mushroom. It needs flavor adding and any factory-added crispy coating removing. It is a good vegetarian source of texture and protein. Low carb vegetables are crucial for your wellbeing on keto and boost your wellbeing. However, many people have had bad experiences with these powerful plants! Soggy sprouts in school canteens and being forced to vegetables have given them a bad reputation. You may need to experiment to find the textures, flavors and cooking methods YOU prefer. Make tasty sauces to serve with your low carb vegetables making them easier to eat. Low carb vegetables are crucial for nutritional wellbeing. You will benefit immensely from adding them to your keto diet.
Hi Fariba, Yes, you’d need more of the crust for sure, probably about 25% more (multiply the amount of each ingredient in the crust by 1.25). For the filling, you could probably keep it the same to avoid messing with conversions, and the cheesecake would just be a shorter height. Some recipes use sour cream for texture or moisture, but this recipe doesn’t need it.
As mentioned above, nuts are high in fat, which makes them great for ketosis. However, this fact also makes nuts high in calories. If you’re on a ketogenic diet for weight loss, then eating a lot of nuts could make it really tough for you to lose weight. For example, 100 grams of macadamia nuts contains 718 calories! While calories are not the only thing that matters for weight-loss, they do still play a part, so watching your calorie intake will be important if you’re looking to lose weight by going on a ketogenic diet.

So, how do we ensure enough super-plant based nutrition on keto? Fortunately there are loads of low carb vegetables and keto friendly fruit you can choose from! Let’s start with low carb vegetables - specifically the green ones! The green color in plants is called chlorophyll. Plants use chlorophyll to capture sunlight and turn it into energy. Chlorophyll protects the body from cancer and cleanses the liver. Amazingly, our bodies can also use chlorophyll inside our mitochondria. This is why green juices, made fresh or from powders, give us a rapid natural energy boost. Green leafy plants like Kale, Spinach and Collard Greens reduce the risk of cancer and many other diseases. Make sure you eat your greens on keto!
Strawberries are another delicious, sweet, and filling fruit that you can eat in moderation on the keto diet. A ½-cup serving of sliced strawberries contains about 4.7 g of net carbs and 4.1 g of sugar. As there are only 27 calories in the aforementioned serving, you can eat strawberries raw, add a few pieces to your cereal, or blend a handful into a small low-carb smoothie. Strawberries also have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, per a study published in February 2010 in the Journal of Medicinal Food. The same ½ cup provides 48.8 mg of vitamin C (81.3 percent DV), 127 mg of potassium (2.7 percent DV), and 20 micrograms of folate (5 percent DV).
