My Keto Journey
I have been on a Keto diet for the most part of the last two years (starting at February, 2020). While this has not always been easy, and I did occasionally fall og the wagon - i am happy with the journey and the results.
In the past, when i first tried the keto diet, i failed. I could not find the time and effort required to be prepared for a fully ketogenic diet, and as such, failed to adhere to the principals.
When i returned to Keto, i had some leads on a bunch of products that I can source locally that really made a difference, along with a new cooking technique, that incidentally, also placed me back on the path to Keto.
For those not familiar with this cooking technique, the idea is to cook water-proofed products in a constant temperature bath of water. I hope to extend this section in the future, so far I cooked beef, salmon and made pickles. I learned a lot along the way, and there are still challenges ahead.
I will include some links to products that I liked, some may or may not be pure “keto” - but i am not a fanatic, YMMV
A very nice “mom and pop” style of shop, where they keep inovating with new products and variants.
- Keto Bread - freezes well, good taste and texture
- Small buns - tastes good, tried with home made burgers, and they took the load well
- Grisini - A very good product, goes well with any dip or as a quick snack. usually stock on a couple of boxes at least
- בורקס - as pastries are one of my weak spots, finding a good, almond based pasrty is hard. these hold up pretty well for what they are.
