Keto Essentials (What are our keto pantry staples?)

Keto Essentials (What are our keto pantry staples?)

September 13, 2019 2 By William Morgan


today I’ll give you a quick rundown of
how to stock your pantry with some of my
top keto essentials to be honest before
starting keto myself I had no idea where
to begin which is why now that I have a
notch or two in my keto belt I’m excited
to help you stock your pantry without
any of the guess work
Elisa here head chef at warriormade.com where eating and exercising well is
the name of our game you see before
starting keto I have all of these
questions are you allowed to eat sweets
on keto? the answer is yes by the way and
what foods do you need on hand to be
prepared luckily I had some guidance
which is why I want to pay it forward
and show you how to stock up on your
keto essentials and answer a few of
those other questions along the way
so let’s do it ok I say we cut right to
the chase and take a look at what the
heck is in my keto pantry brace
yourselves because all the goods are
right here
I’m telling you there’s so
much goodness in here sometimes that
happens love it ok so I don’t totally
bore you going item by item I figured we
could start off by having a little fun
remember how I mentioned that eating
sweets on keto is totally doable well if
you’re anything like me and you have a
sweet tooth this is the thing I needed
to know most before committing to a new
way of eating so even though we usually
save dessert for last today we’re
starting there here’s what you’ll need
in your pantry to make sure the sweet
stuff is taken care of first for all
your baking needs it’s good to have a
few low carb flowers on hand like almond
and coconut flours and as thickening
agents try example gum and arrowroot
powder a lot of keto desserts call for
these items so they’re a good place to
begin some of my family favorite and
keto friendly recipes to whip up with
some of these ingredients are
snickerdoodles and peanut butter cookies
and because keto is low carb these
cookies don’t have any refined sugars on
them so we all get to avoid drastic
sugar highs and crashes
which brings us to keto friendly
sweeteners I’ll put a link in our video
that goes even deeper into this topic
below but for now just note that monk
fruit, liquid stevia, and erythritol are
friends on keto I also like to have some
sugar-free chocolate chips on hand as
well oh and for baking as well as
smoothies and other recipes I love to
have chia seeds and unsweetened coconut
shavings around to they add great
texture and flavor to certain recipes
just make sure there are no added
fillers or sugars in any of these items
keep it pure and simple
alright another important area to stock
up on are your morning and post-exercise
protein shakes fun fact I’m actually
known in the Warrior Made kitchen for my
shake moves I get so excited
each morning because I love a good
protein shake and when it comes to
protein powders here is the one I always
have on hand
it’s a grass-fed collagen protein
which you can click the second link
below to learn more about and to
accompany my protein powder I usually
add unsweetened coconut or almond milk
to the mix alright moving on to snacks I
have two growing boys under the age of
10
so snacks are a must in my house I make
sure that most of the snacks I eat are
kid-friendly too that’s why I always
keep a bunch around always go organic
here and when possible get nut butters
that are raw and cold-pressed this will
ensure they aren’t chemically processed
now other easy snacks are pouched
or canned tuna and jerky just make sure
the tuna is wild and sustainably caught
and with jerky I make sure to buy ones
that are sugar and nitrate free ok we’re
in the home stretch now last up in my
pantry oils and spices
the three main oils I use are olive,
avocado, and coconut I personally use
avocado oil a lot for cooking because it
has a high smoke point which means it
won’t burn or become toxic while cooking
Olive Oil has a lower smoke point so I
usually use it for cold dressings and
coconut oil has become my best friend
when it comes to baking it adds a rich
texture and believe it or not doesn’t
leave every sweet treat you make tasting
like coconut you can definitely use it
for stir frys too whatever floats your
boat sorry
sometimes you need a good visual pun
moving on to spice my meals up a bit
more I always have dried herbs and
spices in the pantry I actually dried
these myself from my own indoor herb
garden but there’s no problem buying
dried herbs from the store when you do
just be sure that there are no additives
like sugars or starches in the meat rubs
or other spices you pick up oh and one
last thing I also keep some extra
condiments on hand that I pop into the
fridge once opened a great brand is
primal kitchen
they make dressings and avocado mayo
that are both keto friendly ok pantry
