WHAT IS KETO DIET?
Ketogenic diets focus on enhancing the process of Ketosis. Ketosis is a natural process wherein the body pledges to help you survive when the food intake is low. The whole purpose of this diet is to induce the body into the ketosis metabolic state.
The main aim here is not to do this through the starvation of calories but instead aim to do this through the starvation of carbs. Which means that the ketogenic diet is carbs-free or very low on carbs. The lower the composition of carbs in your keto diet, the quicker your body produces ketones.
Keto diets are very safe. They are one of the most effective diets that one can follow. However, too much of anything can get out of hand and become harmful. In the case of keto diets, it is best to follow it for not more than 2 weeks.
INTRODUCING THE COCONUT COCOA MACADAMIA KETO SHAKE
This beverage is definitely a fat bomb. Coconut and macadamia nuts are an amazing and lush combination. Rich in natural oils, their nutrient compositions only bring benefits to the consumer.
This is one such recipe that can either be a healthy diet drink, a summer day beverage, a ‘bad day’ drink, or a dessert. The coconut flavour in this drink comes from the coconut milk as well as the grated coconut toppings as garnish. However, you can also make use of extra-virgin coconut oil to induce a complex flavour profile along with some added benefits.
Macadamia nuts are an amazing source of omega oils, other natural oils, magnesium, zinc, manganese and fibre. Not to mention, they are also a rich source of protein. Make sure to consume them in a restricted manner because although an apple a day keeps the doctor away, 10 apples a day don’t do the same.
Remember to have fun and relish this amazing shake!
