Simply articulated, going on a strict keto diet is difficult to. Everyone’s experience is entirely different — some things that may be easy to give up for some may be near impossible to give up for others. In my personal experience, defeating the craves for indispensable carbs such as bread and pasta has been the most difficult of barrier to overcome.

Many believe that cutting out sugars, and therefore desserts, is the hardest component about abiding true to a ketogenic food. However, I believe that this could not be further from the truth. There are so many alternatives to carbohydrate that are essentially carb free that can be substituted into a multitude of recipes to create incredible desserts.

For example, the label Diabetic Kitchen, which has numerous products that can be purchased on Amazon, has created a line of casket assortments that taste nearly identical to the real, carbohydrate-packed foods that we all know and love. Brownies, pancakes, and cookies are only the beginning of what this delicious firebrand has to offer, and Diabetic Kitchen has played a pivotal role in my success on my keto jaunt.

Another extraordinary firebrand that can be most easily found at Target is Quest. Quest is most famously known for their protein rails, but they also have created nutrients that are so low-pitched in net carbs yet so luscious that I sometimes still feel guilty for enjoying them. Their best commodities, in my opinion, are their individual chocolate microchip cookies and their full sizing iced pizzas.

Although some great alternatives to sugary desserts and unhealthy foods are on the market, I cannot say the same for plateau eat or pastas. As an Italian on the keto diet, something I now realise I never fully appreciated or took advantage of is the simple pleasure of piece of bread and butter or a dish of spaghetti in marinara sauce.

Some brands may try to fool you with their excellent carton, apparently fantastic examines, and commodities that appear the same as the meat you acknowledge. But you will realize soon enough, as soon as you take a bite, that these outwits are absolutely no comparison to the real deal. Bread and pastas are irreplaceable.

Thankfully, I have these sweeteneds to keep me sane.
