Following and sticking to any diet, including keto can quickly become challenging with a busy schedule and limited time to prepare your meals. At Nourish and Thrive, we want to help our customers make healthier choices and our huge range of keto snacks, products and meals that can do just that. We have all the keto foods you need, including healthy keto products for baking and keto snacks for when you’re on the go.
What is a keto diet?
The keto diet is a high fat, low carb diet that usually consists of eating about 70% fat, 25% protein and around 5% carbohydrates. Following this type of eating plan is designed to drive your body into ketosis, a state where the body uses fat as a primary fuel source (instead of carbohydrates). We would always advise checking in with a medical practitioner before beginning any kind of diet.
Keto and baking
When following a keto diet, at first, it can feel like you have to say no to all of your favourite things, including cakes, breads and other baked goods. We want to make life easier for you, so we stock high quality baking ingredients that will keep you on track with your keto diet while still allowing you to enjoy some treats – we don’t think you should have to miss out, just because you’re following a keto diet or working towards a healthier lifestyle.
We offer a range of baking mixes that have all the ingredients weighed and measured out for you, to make life just that little bit sweeter. Like this delicious Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix. At just 2g carbs per cookie, they are made with only the finest premium ingredients, including extra dark 80% chocolate. All you have to do is add some coconut oil and an egg into the mix before baking – making them one of the easiest and tastiest snacks on keto.
Bread can be another thing people really miss on keto as it’s generally recommended that you stay away from grains and carb-heavy starches. That’s where our Keto Bread Loaf Mix comes in. Created from ultra-low carb ingredients and packed full of protein and healthy Omega 3 – this bread is delicious fresh or toasted! Packed with premium organic seeds, you’ll still get heaps of nutrients and flavour in each slice.
We want you to be able to make and enjoy your favourite recipes and still feel good after you’ve eaten. Lots of traditional recipes include high quantities of refined sugar and have a high carbohydrate content – neither of which is suitable when following a keto diet.
So, we’ve created a wide range of keto recipes all using keto products that taste just as good as the real deal. One of our latest keto friendly products is something called Allulose, a keto sweetener that behaves, tastes and looks just like normal sugar! It is the highlight of our Keto caramel sauce recipe which is also dairy free – making it a great substitute for those sweet tooth cravings you might be having. You can use it warm and pour it over something like our Keto Eggnog ice cream or place it in the fridge to thicken it up ready for our Keto Chocolate Trifle recipe.
Finding great snacks on keto isn’t always easy and we know it’s handy to have something to grab when you’re on the go. That’s why our range of recipes includes healthy snack ideas along with recipes for baking sweet and savoury cookies, breads and desserts.
Our recipes are created using many of the products available on our website, so you can find everything you need in one place. We offer substitutes and alternatives that cater to almost every diet – making it fun and easy to follow a healthy lifestyle.
