The ketogenic diet is all about nourishing and healing  our bodies with nutrient-dense whole foods. But food is more than just nourishment; food is tradition, food is love, food is celebration and most importantly, food is a comfort!  When we think of eating a particular meal or the smell of a favorite childhood dish it brings up positive memories. Let’s face it…our lives revolve around food!

When you begin the Keto diet, whether your goal is for weight loss, or just enhance overall health, you don’t have to forget to enjoy food.  Don’t get bored or get into a routine of having the basic Keto foods over and over to where it gets boring.  This might tempt you to go back to your old ways of eating. Instead, embrace the Keto diet with a little creativity and seek out comfort foods you love that taste amazing! (without the carb coma or weight gain)

Craving comfort food is common, especially this time of year when we are thinking “all things pumpkin” and the holidays are approaching.  This is when I find myself craving comfort food, but not in a heavy, traditional way.  I’ve discovered there are so many delicious low-carb keto recipes that will satisfy my comfort food craves and fit within a low-carb keto lifestyle, too. It is truly the best of both worlds and I wouldn’t have it any other way!


So when that CRAVE FOR COMFORT FOOD IS REAL… open your mind, and palate and read on to find out about some of the foods you may not think of that are all about being low carb!  There is something to satisfy every crave and there is nothing better than a low-carb healthy version of your go-to favorite foods.

Here are some of my faves that most people will say….how can that be Keto?  This is just the tip of the iceberg to get you thinking differently… so here goes.
