These are really helpful when you first start keto because they’re tangible proof that the process is getting started. While not completely necessary, they may be a motivating tool to keep you on track.
This is a must. must. must. I shout from the mountains. YOU NEED A FOOD SCALE. I’ve seen the best results when I weighed everything. It’s easy to eyeball, but not always accurate. Food scales help train you on what is a real serving for your macros. If you haven’t found success with low carb and don’t own a food scale, you’ll definitely want to pick one up and see the difference it makes.
Measuring cups are always helpful! Especially when needing a quick measurement such as with heavy cream in your coffee. Those calories can add up very, very quickly if you’re not paying attention.
I love that these are collapsible because they’re easy to pack and take with you. Healthy lifestyles don’t stop on vacation, at the office, or out to eat, and this is an easy way to stay on track.
Spiralizers are the coolest. I bought myself one and two days later bought my mom one because I loved it so much. You can use a variety of veggies to make your dishes more exciting. Here’s a link to my first time making zoodles!
The first keto sweetnener I ever tried. Still one of my favorites, to be honest. If you’ve never tried it, it does have a bit of a cooling taste but you’ll learn tricks to deal with that as you make delicious recipes like my keto cheesecake bars.
A tasty sweetener with less of a cooling taste than swerve. The company also sells brownie and cookie mix that are low carb and quite good.
In low carb cooking you go through a lot of parchment, so it’s a good idea to invest in silicone baking mats. The reason is because low carb baking is often more delicate than traditional baking ie; chicken pizza crust needs a baking sheet whereas traditional pizza crust can be made on a variety of surfaces.
BBQ sauce is one of my top condiment necessities. I discovered this on a trip to Chicago and can’t find it where I live, unfortunately. A must have for BBQ pizza and summer grilling
Protein powders can have sneaky ingredients that add carbs. This zero carb protein powder will make sure you don’t add unnecessary carbs in your shakes, just quality protein.
A must have for Keto baking. Almond flour gives you a base from everything to pancakes to brownies and can even be added into casseroles and pizza. This is one of those things I always have around the house for when the mood to bake strikes
Another must have for Keto baking. Lighter than almond flour, it can be used for many types of meals and making tasty mug cakes!
A cool kitchen gadget to make life a bit easier! I love making my own burgers to freeze and this great time saver that will give you perfectly even burgers
These are great for making keto buns! Whether you’re making cloud bread buns or almond flour buns, these will give you the perfect size bun
A morning essential. Great for blending up that bulletproof coffee and small enough to throw in your bag if you’re on the go
I find meat themometers important on Keto as I learned to cook meat. I was scared to cook weird cuts of meat, thick steaks, etc, because I never knew when they were done. Obviously, Keto made me get over that and a thermometer was a great tool to help me along the way
I love this stuff. I really really do. A nutritionally complete shake you just blend water, cream and oil. Tons of flavors, absolutely delicious. I’m certain this played a big role in losing my first 20 pounds because it’s so convenient, gave me awesome energy and really helped me get my eating habits under control. P.S. it tastes like a melted milkshake. Everyone says that and it’s 100% true! (Use Code: KETOMAMA5 for $5 off!)
A super tasty LCHF cookie (with rumored new flavors on the way!) Made with high quality ingredients. Check out my review! (Use Code: HEYKETOMAMA for 10% off!)
