Keto as a Way of Life
You really can’t bake anything Keto without almond flour. It provides the bready texture, takes moisture well and is fairly neutral in flavor.
We like the Bob’s Red Mill brand because that company does a good job of not adding fillers and nonsense.
Sam’s is the best (cheapest) place to get this if you have one close by and they carry it. Though that’s hit or miss sometimes. Amazon is our fall back source for this.

Apple Cider Vinegar Capsules
We wanted the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar, but we couldn’t handle drinking the stuff; even mixing it with other things. So we turned to this supplement.

Rebecca uses an elecrolyte drink when she does extended fasts called “Snake Juice”. It’s a mix of salt and other things. One of the ingredients in Baking Soda.
She likes the Bob’s Red Mill brand because it doesn’t have aluminum in it. That’s not a metal you want a whole lot of in your diet!
Bob’s Red Mill does a great job of not adding a lot of extra junk to their products.

NOTE: I found this cheaper online at swansonvitamins.com (not an affiliate link)
Butcher Box is a subscription based meat delivery service. They do an outstanding job making clean meat available to people.
- 100% Grass-fed & Grass-Finished Beef
- Heritage Breed Pork
- Free-range Organic Chicken
If you’re doing Keto to improve your health, this is the way to go. If you eat meat because you like the taste, this is THE WAY to go! Rebecca and I couldn’t believe the difference in the flavor.

There are a ton of extracts out there. Amazon has most of them, so go and browse their selection. Often, they have the hard to find extracts, and they’re usually a bit cheaper than the grocery store. We honestly haven’t landed on a favorite brand yet. But these are absolutely worth learning how to use, especially on Keto!

This is one of those ingredients we’d never heard of before Keto. Since we discovered it, we’ve found about a brazillian uses for it!
With 1 carb and 1 dietary fiber per serving, it’s the perfect ingredient to use in Keto oatmeal, to make Keto breads/muffings and all sorts of other things. Needless to say, you’ll see this ingredient in a lot of the recipes on this blog.

Flax seed is one of the essencials of Keto baking. It adds a depth of flavor to breads/muffings. With only 1 net carb per 2 tablespoons, it’s a great addition to any recipe that might use flour or meal.
We like it because it’s also a good source of Magnesium and Omega 3 fatty acids.

When we started Keto, we noticed discomfort in our Thyroid glands. Discovering that Keto can cause an Iodine deficiency, we began to supplement with this brand.

This is the blood ketone meter we use and we like it. Here’s the text right from the Amazon page, and I think it’s pretty spot on.
“Blood testing is the most accurate way to test for ketone and glucose levels. The Keto-Mojo Testing Kit exceeds strict FDA and International standards ensuring you get the best measurement results possible.”

Monk Fruit quickly became our favorite Keto sweetener. It tastes good, has no aftertaste that we can discern and it doesn’t affect our blood glucose at all. The only down side is that it’s a little more expensive than other sweeteners, but we think it’s worth it.
It comes in granular, confectioners and golden (which is similar to brown sugar). All three are fantastic!

When you’re on Keto, especially if you do intermittant fasting, it’s important to make sure you get all your vitamins.
There may be better multivitamins out there, but we like this one because it’s designed specifically for low carb diets. We used this when we first started Keto because someone recommended it to us, and we never suffered from Keto Flu.
