For Jessica – You can use any of the sweeteners appropriate for keto recipes. (Xylitol has a higher glycemic index.) I do not understand why recipes always call for a specific low carb sweetener – unless it is because whoever posted the recipe gets a commission if you buy the product they recommend. As a matter of fact I have a conversion chart for Natural Low Carb Sweeteners that came from Wholesome Yum!
Hi Suraya, great to hear that you are on the keto diet! I’ve been on it with a strict training regime at Axiom. Technically i’ve done it before without realising last year, but i’m back on it again and it’s one the best lifestyle changes i’ve seen for me. I came across your site because I was searching for low carb sweeteners. I’m finding that a problem unless i buy Stevia online which is possible. Anyway for recipes do checkout ketodietapp. It’s awesome and I will experimenting on recipes of my own too on my website. Warrior on with the keto! 🙂
What is keto360
Hi, I am on keto + omad fasting recently, thanks for sharing all these info ( i love the sugar free jam you recommended!). I am still exploring and testing with those keto-friendly ingredients and for recipe, I often watch video of “headbanger’s kitchen” and “keto connect” for ideas! I tried the “keto bread” by “keto connect”, they turned out great and goes very well with the jam! I made my own peanut butter too (without any sugar), carbs are pretty low compare to store bought. For seeds and nuts I recommend you guys to pay a visit to “the hive bulk” located at jalan telawi, bangsar, they sell variety of nuts and seeds with reasonable price, and also organice condiments. Signature Market is a good online store to shop too (they are giving 3 months free membership + high discount). For avocado, I find that Jaya Grocer sells at pretty good deal (3 in 1 pack for rm12.90, the one at Intermark). I am just wondering where can I get cheaper salmon, the one I bought at morning market sri rampai costed me rm19 for just one slice! Btw, I am going to try making cauliflower chicken rice and flaxseed crackers too 🙂
Hi! I live in Europe but I’m a Sabahan who goes home every year for a couple of months for Chinese New Year. So I started keto about 2.5 months ago for weight loss and the result is pretty good. I’m due to return to Malaysia in a month’s time and I had a mild panic attack assuming that I won’t be able to get keto-friendly product. Created a ridiculous list of things to bring back too! After reading your post I feel a lot better now, phew!
What is keto bread made of
Can I lose 60 pounds in 3 months
Hi Neha, my recipe uses baking powder and not baking soda. I think this is the reason why your bread had a funny taste. Baking soda is much stronger than baking powder (I think twice as strong). The xanthan gum helps improve the structure of the bread – almond flour bread is a little more fragile than wheat bread because of the lack in gluten. But your bread will still work without the xanthan.
just to share with you that i normally buy my cheese, butter, almond flour, nuts…from bakery ingredients shops that are selling much more cheaper than retail shops and supermarket. eg. i get raw almond and almond flour around RM39-41/kg, walnut around the same price. mozzarella RM50+/2kg block, cheddar RM70+/2kg block, cooking cream RM5/pack, while coconut flour RM12+ at Aeon….while i travel in eastern Europe, i’ll buy MCT oil and coconut oil which is ridiculously cheaper than Malaysia, eg, pure MCT oil is selling RM30+/400ml while the one i found in KL is selling RM60+ 300ml and VCO is RM20+/1l while RM60+ in Malaysia. also, in Eastern Europe, animal fats are easily available and cheap, if you happened to travel here you can pack some home.
