Are you trying to reduce the amount of carbohydrates in your diet, but don't know what to cook instead? Come check out this episode with Maria Emmerich, co-author of the Ketogenic Cookbook: Nutritious Low-Carb, High-fat, Paleo Meals to Heal Your Body.
Maria has two young kids that she and her husband adopted both at once, and she stills manages to cook her little heart out, coming up with her own tasty, ketogenic recipes.
Her secret? "Plan, plan, plan." Ok, planning might sound like a drag, but once you get in the hang of it, you'll be a pro. Besides, most of us just rotate 12-15 meals, so you don't need to learn too many to eating well and low-carb daily.
What is ketogenic?
Ketogenic describes a kind of high-fat, low-carb, moderate protein diet that results in the body primarily burning ketones for fuel.
Ketogenic diet has historically been used to treat epilepsy and diabetes, but also has benefits for things like:
- Brain fog
- Belly fat
See our past podcast episode "Should You Try a Ketogenic Diet?" with author Jimmy Moore for more on the theory and practice of ketogenic eating.
