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 🙂
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!
Curry puffs or as we call it, Karipap is a comfort food for Malaysians. Well, any Malaysian food is comfort food to us. 🙂 Karipap is also known as epok-epok and is quite similar to Empanadas. Karipap is a dough stuffed with dry curried minced meat or sardines and then fried. Some add a quarter of a hard boiled egg in it. On a regular day, I would make Karipap using ready made puff pastry as I don’t have a good hand with dough ( I always over handle it).

Can I eat eggs everyday on keto


Don’t care for lemon extract? Just replace the lemon extract with more vanilla extract, or use another extract. The beauty of this recipe is that it is easily adaptable and you can change the flavors to suit your own tastes. Sometimes I’ll use only vanilla extract in place of lemon, or use butter extract with the vanilla extract. When I’m really in the mood I’ll toss in some berries before baking.

Can you eat too much fat on the keto diet


But since I’m on a Keto way of eating, I had to find an alternative. The filling is perfectly fine and I did not have to use any substitutes. The dough however, was my problem. Few days ago, I found a Keto empanada recipe and it took me back to my trip to Spain last summer and I had 2 empanadas and that reminded me of karipap. So after some research, I decided to use a Keto empanada dough recipe but fill it with dry mince meat curry to make Malaysian karipap. I was a little hesitant because using a cheese dough recipe for karipap as it seemed like an abomination to karipap, but after I had my first bite I can safely say, IT’S DAMN DELICIOUS! You can’t even tell that it was made from cheese!

Beating the egg whites is the answer to the denseness that comes with making an almond flour bread. I’ve made countless baked goods using almond flour and the main problem I’ve encountered is how dense the finished product is. The fluffy egg whites in unison with the high dosage of baking powder do a good job of getting this loaf nice and fluffy and adding some air pockets into the loaf. This makes for a better tasting bread.

Is dry mouth a sign of ketosis


Hi Marcella, Not all recipes can use sweeteners interchangeably, though many can. I do talk about this in the sweetener guide you mentioned. The reason for specific sweeteners in recipes is mainly because I can only 100% vouch for the way I tested the recipe, with my specific ingredients. Sweeteners also provide bulk, so sometimes changing to a different one does change the result as well. In the case of these cinnamon rolls, though, there isn’t a lot of sweetener in the dough, so they do work fine with almost any sweetener you like.
Reading all of these and I may be able to help with some of the issues people have. As far as doubling the recipe, works great for me, just have to increase the temp to 425 to start, first 10 minutes, then drop to 325 for the remainder. Higher start temp gives it the jump you need, lower temp after gives it the ability to bake without burning. Milled flax seeds add a slight bit of unnecessary oils, not much, but oils work best with normal flour. Try whole flax seed on top instead. I have been making this bread alot lately with no issues, I hope no one gets shys away from this recipe because of poor results, just keep trying. You will be glad you did.
Eggs are one of the best kinds of ingredient there is. Rich with protein and omega 3, eggs, especially if both yolk and white are consumed, can be an excellent food source for micro-nutrients and protein. Eggs are a perfect example of dietary protein that is important in providing our bodies with amino acids which can help in building muscles and nourishing the body.

Eritritol ada di sana untuk menambah sedikit rasa manis pada roti, yang biasanya mempunyai roti putih. Ramai orang memasukkannya ke dalam diet paleo kerana ia semula jadi, tetapi jika anda tidak suka, atau anda tidak menyukainya kerana apa-apa sebab lain, tidak mengapa. Anda boleh menggunakan mana-mana pemanis granul yang anda suka. Gula kelapa adalah satu paleo biasa.

My friend Hazim told me that it was his favorite breakfast pre-keto, where he could easily go to a street vendor in his village and grab one for around 70 cents. He also told me that the condiments vary depending on who is making it. Sometimes the rice has no seasoning, other times sambal (we use homemade sambal) and a small fried egg is included. Typically you can also see fried peanuts, dried anchovies, cucumber, and other pickled items included.

Resep Membuat Lumpia Isi Daging Ayam Keto – Lumpia atau spring roll sebenarnya berasal dari Tionghoa, setelah itu diadaptasi oleh orang Indonesia dengan berbagai macam pilihan isi daging dan sayuran. Yang terkenal adalah lumpia Semarang yang khas dengan isi sayur rebungnya. Lumpia terdiri dari bagian kulit dan bagian isi. Biasanya kulit terbuat dari tepung yang berfungsi untuk melapisi bagian isi.  Terdapat 2 jenis lumpia yaitu lumpia kering dan lumpia basah. Isinya juga bermacam-macam, mulai dari daging, sayuran, bihun dan sebagainya.
If you want to spend more, fried chicken or beef is usually added to the dish. But, we decided to keep it pretty simple and mimic the street food you can get. In Brunei, where Hazim is from, pandan leaves are commonly used. They’re tied together in a knot and boiled in coconut milk. But, this is a pretty hard ingredient to find in the rest of the world, he decided it would be best to skip it.

Is Sliced turkey a processed meat


Hi Mark, the nutrition box states 1 serving (slice) out of 12. SO, if you wanted to calculate the nutrition for the entire bread, you’d just have to multiply it by 12. I’m sorry, but I did not weigh the bread so I cannot give you the nutrition per 100 g. There’s a good (free) nutrition calculator on the website sparkrecipes.com that you can use. Or download the KetoDietApp, it also has a good one. Glad you like the bread though!
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!
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.

Is intermittent fasting good for IBS


Oh just about everything- ice cream, cheese cake (although had to give some heavy cream in this), cheese dip, chocolate-cheese mousse etc. I cook it with chicken and spinach too, but I was talking about non-traditional uses like the ones above. I’ve recently started using it with mayonnaise to give it a lighter consistency because my mayo seems to thicken too much. However, you cannot make VCO from the store bought cream, you would need fresh santan to do that.
4.) Fill the dough into a loaf tin lined with baking paper. If you don’t use a silicone loaf pan line ALL SIDES with parchment paper so the bread will release easily. Smooth the top, but don’t press down too much – keep as much air in the dough as possible. Bake at 180 Celsius / 350 Fahrenheit for about 45 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean!
Take the dough out onto a large piece of parchment paper (not the one on the baking sheet). It will still be fairly sticky. Use a little bit of the melted butter on your hands to prevent sticking as you spread it into a rectangle. Place another piece of parchment on top and roll out to a thinner rectangle, about 14 in (36 cm) long by 10 in (25 cm) wide, and 1/3 to 1/2 in (8 to 13 mm) thick.
This is without a doubt the best keto bread I have tried to date. The taste and texture are spot on! I did add half a tsp of cinnamon and about 5 drops of stevia because I’m making this to replace homemade whole wheat cinnamon raisin bread. Reader beware this bread is dangerously good! I definitely need a smaller loaf pan to get a more square sandwich bread shape, the 9×5 made a flat thin loaf.

Hi Suraya…..stumble on yr site while surfing for healthy oils as i make my own oils namely coconut, peanut, sunflower and flaxseed….own consumption and selling to close relatives and friends. Since my husband’s episode of ” heart attack” few years ago, i’ve started realizing that our staple diet among malaysians are full of sugars, fast food and carbs. The more i research the more I’ve come to realize that the main ingredients are so full of preservatives, colorings and additives….This keto diet that i’ve come across so frequently nowdays has made me thinking of trying it but with the mentality especially for asians….rice and flour is a must have on our dinner tables including my husband….i can only wonder.

For salmon, I found that quality is directly linked to the price 🙁 I mean, sometimes Tesco and Giant would sell them at good prices but they seem to be, I dunno, off in a way. Rather than not eating salmon, I’ve decided to buy cheaper cuts and cook that instead. I’d buy the head and make salmon fish head curry. If you like fish curry, try this – so good!

Can I eat sugar during intermittent fasting


I’m on keto for about a year now. Lose abt 6kg. size L to S!!. It’s not abt me at first it’s for my husband who suffer from diabetic at a very young age. The whole lifestyle and our perspective in health are changing now. He’s fine now without medication. In terms of calorie intake distributions, 5% from carbs, 20% from protein and 75% from Fat. Need to make sure your protein with high quality and healthy fat to make sure you get a nutrient dense foods. Keto, it’s about running your body fuel from glucose to ketones. Another important points is you need to keep vegetables intake as high as possible min. 7 – 10 cups a day. and lot’s more to share.. visit my facebook page KALE Shakes. I shared everything i learned about Ketogenic diet.
Dear Darlene Hi,There are many keto bread recipes online,this one caught my attention owing to its promise of not smelling eggy. That claim holds true to a large extent. I used baking powder instead of xanthum gum but even then the texture was good .Overall a great recipe which I hope and continue to improve. However I am confused about the net carbs in the nutrition box. As per my understanding net carbs are total carbs – sugar – dietary fiber which in this case will not be logical. Can you pls advise the net carb per slice as per the recipe. Thanks a lot.

Bagi penyimpanan, ia sama dengan roti biasa dalam beberapa cara dan berbeza dengan orang lain. Seperti mana-mana roti, ia akan menjadi basi jika ia berada di tempat terbuka terlalu lama.

Is it safe to fast every other day


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.
