I'm going to try to round up my fave Keto products every week and share them here! If you try them, leave me a comment below and let me know what you think!

1. KETO COFFEE

Ok confession time - I would not have survived my first week without this. It tastes delicious, is SO easy to make and it helps jumpstart you into ketosis and get that fat burning started! When I started my mornings with a Keto Coffee, I felt on track and ready to stick to my diet. If you're serious about your diet, I recommend buying a pack of 4 - you'll save money and not run out at the end of the month. I chose to have one every morning, but you could also alternate with your regular coffee and have one every other day!

2. NUTIVA COCONUT FLOUR

With high protein and finer but low carbs, this flour will become your best friend in the kitchen. This week, most of my dinners were cooked with coconut flour! I was able to bread my chicken breast and even make cheese biscuits without the added carbs from regular flour. I totally recommend making coconut flour a staple in your kitchen during your Keto Diet. I used the Nutiva one because of the low carbs, but I'm sure there are other awesome ones out there too! Let me know below if you have a fave.

3. All Yum Onion Chips

These Sea Salt Onion Chips were a saviour this week when I wanted nothing more than to sit on my couch and devour a bag of popcorn. They are delicious, gluten free, low in carbs and a perfect treat to curb your cravings for starchy foods! My fave was the Ranch flavour. Click here to visit their site!

My success is because of my daily Keto Coffee. You can get it for 40% off by joining my 90 day challenge!!! Ask me how by commenting below or click here to sign up!

Keto Food Journal - Week 1

Finding delicious meals has not been as difficult as I thought and I am SO THANKFUL. I was sure that after day 1, I would be crying and regretting announcing online that I was committing to a KETO diet - but I'm still so happy with my decision! I thought I'd share what some of my meals this week looked like!

Breakfast:
Breakfast, I find, has been the most simple to plan but the hardest to execute because I leave so early for work. Having a plan the night before definitely makes it easier. 

I start every morning with a KETO Coffee. Click here for the one I use. Consider investing in a 4-pack - you'll save money and won't ever be missing it! If you're like me and add cream to your coffee, I recommend the KETO Creamer as well! It's relish and will help jumpstart your Keto Diet efforts.

- 2 Egg Omelette: ham, red pepper, cheddar cheese, spinach and half an avocado on the side
- 2 Eggs, 4 pieces of Bacon and a slice of Tomato
- Yogurt & Chia Seeds: 
1/2 cup of yogurt with 1 tbs of chia seeds (let soak overnight in the fridge). In the morning, add a few berries to your container and you're good to go! ** TIP: if you eat breakfast at work, add frozen berries to your container and they will have thawed by the time you go to eat them - they will also help keep your yogurt cold. 

Lunch:
Lunch has been an easy-ish meal. The hardest part has been getting enough fat into each serving. I never realized how hard it was to reach that 70-25-5 ratio for fat-protein-carb!

To help with the KETO FLU this week, I've been taking KETO Energy Packs - They help with the fatigue and mood swings that can accompany the change in diet for the first few weeks of your Keto journey. Click here to see the ones I use. 

- Pepper Sandwich: 1 bell pepper cut in half (used to replace bread), 1 tbs mayo, 2 slices of turkey, lettuce, tomato, sliced havarti cheese.
Salads: (keep in mind that because this is a LOW CARB diet, you can't pack it full with as many carb filled veggies as you normally would) - 1/4 cup green beans, 5 cherry tomatoes, 1 cup spinach, 1/8 cup of marble cheese, 1/8 cup of ham or turkey, 3-4 tbs of dressing (I chose a President's Choice Greek Vinaigrette with 6g of fat and only 1g of carbs)
Leftovers from the night before!!!
 

Dinner:
This meal's biggest challenge is not going over my carb consumption after my other meals are over! I love though that I can use as many fanny sauces as I want (mayo, spicy mayo, mustard, salad dressing etc. - just check the carb content!)

Organic All Beef Sausages with broiled broccoli
- Breaded Cod with Garlic-Parmesan Mashed Cauliflower **
I used coconut flour for the breading on the cod!
- Broiled chicken cordon bleu with asparagus (stuffed with bacon and cheese)
- Chicken thighs with a dijon mustard cream sauce and brussel sprouts
- Taco bowl: 
ground beef, tomato, cheddar cheese, lettuce, avocado, sour cream and salsa.

WEIGH IN RESULTS: -6.8lbs!
I am thrilled with my results. Almost 7 pounds down in 7 days! Stay tuned for next week for another update!
