Keto Chocolate Peppermint Chia Pudding

There is much more to a ketogenic diet than butter, oil and avocado. Expand your list of foods with this list of keto-friendly foods.

No matter how delicious the bacon, cream, butter, avocados, eggs and nuts are, you cannot create a long-term nutritional plan, you  need options!

 One of the biggest mistakes that people make on the ketogenic diet is not having enough variety in their diet and eating the same foods every day.

This would make anyone bored and tired of their new way of eating, which increases the risk of quitting the diet.

Chia seeds provide almost no net carbohydrates and the grams they provide are mainly made of soluble fiber, also known as prebiotic fiber.

Fiber is one of the most important nutrients you can eat because it aids in digestive health. Your digestive system is where nutrients are absorbed. It’s also where many neurotransmitters are produced, including GABA, serotonin, and dopamine. 

This means that your digestive system directly impacts your mood. It also “communicates” with your brain via the vagus nerve. So, a properly functioning digestive system means that you’ll have better brain health, too. 

Our recipe also contains coconut milk and sour cream, which are healthy sources of fat to help increase your ketone production and keep you in ketosis.

Look for raw cacao powder whenever baking with chocolate. This ensures that your chocolate contains as many anti-inflammatory antioxidants as possible. 

You can use any keto sweetener you have on hand. We like monk fruit, stevia and erythritol. You can also use a bit of pure vanilla extract for some added flavor. Just make sure you buy the kind that doesn’t have added sugars!
