Keto diet is so low on carbs that the body has to automatically switch to use fat for fuel. When the body is out of sugar, fat is converted in the lever into energy molecules called ketones that fuel the brain and the diet that results in this, is called ketogenic and hence it is called Keto diet. Being fueled by fat, the state is called ketosis.

It is not a new concept; it was previously followed by the names of:

1) Strict low-carb diet
2) Gluten free diet
3) Paleo diet
4) Atkins diet

But what makes it different is, it is a super-charged low carb diet and you don’t run out of energy.

Ingredients:

1½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese

2 tbsp cream cheese

1 tsp white wine vinegar

3) Stir until they melt together. Add the other ingredients and mix well.

4) Moisten your hands with olive oil and flatten the dough on parchment paper, making a circle about 8 inches (20 cm) in diameter. You can also use a rolling pin to flatten the dough between two sheets of parchment paper.

5) Remove top parchment sheet (if used). Prick the crust with a fork (all over) and bake in the oven for 10–12 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven.

Net carbs: 2 % (1 g)

Fiber: 7 g

Protein: 5 % (2 g)

Kcal: 221

 

Ingredients:

¾ cup coconut flour

2 tbsp ground psyllium husk powder (isabgol)

½ tsp onion powder (optional)

½ tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1/3 cup melted coconut oil

2 cups boiling water

Coconut oil, for frying (optional)

Sea salt

 

Garlic butter:

½ cup butter

2 garlic cloves, minced

 

Instructions:

1) Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add oil and boiling water (hold some of it back in case it’s not needed) and stir thoroughly.

2) Allow to rise for five minutes. The dough will turn firm fairly quickly, but stay flexible. It should resemble the consistency of Play-Doh. If you find it’s too runny then add more psyllium husk until it feels right. If it’s too firm, add some of the remaining water. The amount needed may vary depending on what brand of husk or coconut flour you use.

3) Divide into 6 or 8 pieces and form into balls that you flatten with your hands directly on parchment paper or on the kitchen counter.

4) Fry rounds in a skillet over medium heat until the Naan turn a nice golden color. Depending on your skillet you can add some coconut oil to it so the bread doesn’t stick.

5) Heat the oven to 140°F (70°C) and keep the bread warm while you make more.

6) Melt the butter and stir in the freshly squeezed garlic. Apply the melted butter on the bread pieces using a brush and sprinkle flaked salt on top.

7) Pour the rest of the garlic butter in a bowl and dip pieces of bread in it.

Net carbs: 3 % (9 g)

Fiber: 14 g

Fat: 88 % (109 g)

Protein: 9 % (26 g)

Kcal: 1146

 

Ingredients:

 

Pie crust

¾ cup almond flour

4 tbsp sesame seeds

4 tbsp coconut flour

1 tbsp ground psyllium husk powder (isabgol)

a tsp of baking powder

pinch of salt

3 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil

1 egg

4 tbsp water

 

Filling

2 ripe avocados

1 cup mayonnaise

3 eggs

2 tbsp fresh cilantro (dhaniya), finely chopped

1 red chili pepper, finely chopped

½ tsp onion powder

¼ tsp salt

½ cup cream cheese

1¼ cups shredded cheese

 

Instructions:

1) Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Mix all the ingredients for the pie dough in a food processor for a few minutes until the dough forms a ball. If you don’t have a food processor, just knead the ingredients together in a bowl using either a fork or your hands.

2) Attach a piece of parchment paper to a spring form pan, no larger than 12 inches (26 cm) diameter. The spring form pan makes it easier to remove the pie when it’s done. Grease the pan and the paper.

3) Spread dough into the pan. Use an oiled spatula or your fingers. Pre-bake the crust for 10–15 minutes.

4) Split the avocado. Remove peel and pit, and dice. Remove the seeds from the chili and chop finely. Place the avocado and the chili in a bowl and mix with the other ingredients.

5) Pour mixture into the pie crust. Bake for 35 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes and serve with a green salad.

Ingredients:

2 cups cauliflower

3 eggs

½ yellow onion, grated

1 tsp salt

2 pinches pepper

½ cup butter, for frying

2) Add cauliflower to a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix. Set aside for 5–10 minutes.

3) Melt a generous amount of butter or oil on medium heat in a large skillet. The cooking process will go quicker if you plan to have room for 3–4 pancakes (about 3–4 inches each) at a time. Use the oven on low heat to keep the first batches of pancakes warm while you make the others.

4) Place scoops of the grated cauliflower mixture in the frying pan and flatten them carefully until they measure about 3–4 inches in diameter.

5) Fry for 4–5 minutes on each side. Adjust the heat to make sure they don’t burn. Remember — patience is a virtue — if you flip the pancakes too soon they may fall apart!
