keto cheesecake - trusii

“Dessert” and “keto” in the same sentence—what?! Is that even possible? For those of us who are new to the keto diet, it can be difficult to understand what we can and can’t eat if we want to see any progress. The keto diet, a booming health trend, involves eating low-carb, high-fat, and moderate-protein foods. High in good fats and low in sugar and carbs, the keto diet is very restrictive in food choices. But even the keto diet doesn’t have to keep you from satisfying your sweet tooth.

Here are some delicious dessert recipes to help you through the keto diet without hindering your success in any way.

Who says you can’t enjoy a creamy cheesecake when you’re dieting? Keto cheesecake with a pecan almond crust allows you to indulge in a creamy and crunchy delight while still achieving your low-carb goals. Instead of high-carb graham cracker crust, this recipe uses almond flour, which contains healthy monounsaturated fats and antioxidant-rich vitamin E, and pecans, which have flavonoid antioxidants. You get your fat and protein from the cream cheese and eggs.

The almond flour and almond butter contain monounsaturated fats, vitamin E, and magnesium to keep you on the straight and keto. Butter and vanilla give it a cookie flavor you will love.

You read that right: bacon. Covered in chocolate. And it’s just as simple as it sounds. To make chocolate-covered bacon, simply cook some organic, pastured bacon and dip it in half a block of a Chocolate Fuel Bar or the equivalent. Add salt to taste. Each slice totals just 3.5 net carbs.

You don’t have to do the impossible on your keto diet. Give yourself a sweet indulgence now and then with one of the above keto-friendly treats. You will crave less while still keeping your weight-loss goals in your sights.
