August 30, 2019 2 By William Morgan


hello everyone welcome to Mind Blowing
Health and Wellness with Violet Pat Chat Edition
I’m Violet and I’m Pat we make these videos
so that we can share with you some of
the Articles that Patrick finds
sometimes the information is really
amazing and other times well it’s we’re
talking about it because we want you to
know not to be fooled by it so I’m not
sure I’m never sure what kind of
informations get me thrown at me so I’m
gonna pass it over to Patrick so he can
tell me what we’re talking about today
this week we’re talking about dessert
food okay like specifics I mean I know
we always talk first we talked about
snacks and now they didn’t really fit
into a keto lifestyle you should like
not into the category of still part of
the meal okay
and so I’m well it’s in the sense that
I’m not having a second or third spike
it’s added to my day so that part okay I
can I’m following you so so so so like
my first question was like yeah you
answered it like is there room for
dessert on a keto lifestyle all the ways
they really need to be super super low
carb obviously if you want to stick to
your 28th birthday
so here’s the thing but everything it
all depends on what’s a dessert you know
before I started this lifestyle I
remember being very surprised by the
fact that my little niece one of her
favorite snacks
sorry hmm okay and janicoo cumbers thank
you fellas okay yeah mine stuff like
this like no there’s just like that just
okay if you give her a piece of lettuce
she’s happy right like she was the
happiest kid abut so you know like
dessert means something different to
everybody so I’m waiting here we’re
going to tell me the dessert is but for
right now as long as it as at the end of
that meal okay yeah so the article that
piqued my interest is titled make room
for dessert these nine dietitian
approved low carb treat will satisfy
your sweet tooth last week I said
nutritionist should be addition approved
dessert on a keto lifestyle even in the
title that got my attention if you want
to satisfy your sweet
two on a keto lifestyle you probably
didn’t make it to the keto lifestyle yet
if you still have a sweet tooth yeah
even me that’s on the moral low throw
low carb I don’t I don’t think I have a
sweet I had this with two before but
like I don’t think so but anyway so so
we’re gonna go over a few dessert and
comment maybe comment on it and see like
what they’re supposed to be keto approve
they say low carb treats so yeah so
you’re not gonna go we’re not gonna go
over all the recipe we’re just gonna
give you like the idea you can probably
like Google I just want to make sure I
understood the premise of this article
they’re talking to keto people no no
these design dietician approved low carb
treats will satisfy your sweet tooth so
are so low carb so some of my feeling is
that we’re we’re not gonna have anything
like above 25 30 grams okay so – I
probably nine tens I’m right now I’m
adjusting my thought process to 125
grams of carbs or less because that’s
low for now so I’m just I’m saying that
out loud
so everything you’re gonna hear me say
right now going forward is from the
perspective of okay 125 grams of carbs
or less okay okay the first one the
first recipe and I’m not sure if we
already made it though an avocado
chocolate pudding okay so let me just
like see yeah like I said you if you
want to make an avocado chocolate
pudding you probably gonna fire so don’t
I’m just trying to see if they give and
they don’t even give members on this one
like I’m just trying to get like a
number with net carbs oh you can try
this recipe let’s go see this this
recipe from from from from from pop
sugar pop sugar okay so there’s two
avocados one cup almond milk so far so
good the quarter cups of maple syrup
that’s like 3/4 country quarters I make
maple syrup so we have three quarter
cups of cocoa powder
so that’s good once teaspoon vanilla
extract cinnamon pinch of salt okay so
only sugar and there’s made of maple
syrup okay
so we have 158 net carb net for the
total recipe no 3/4 cup oh that’s not
bad
no yeah two point one point four for a
cup yeah net we’re talking that carbs
here
that’s numbers I’m giving here’s net
even if you say it made six like you’re
sitting at 25 hmm think that’s not bad
yeah 25 grams of carbs on low carb and
that’s your dessert that’s not bad hmm
so like I would I’m totally fine with
that like like I’m not even trying to
like Quito fry it like it’s not that so
yeah okay second carissa P I actually
feel like nutritionists and dietitians
do better on low-carb oh yeah yeah I
think so yeah because I because they
they need that shot I think no yeah no
nutritionist I don’t think for them that
there’s enough publicly available
information and governmental
governmental information about like the
negative effects of carbs to promote
like keto lifestyle like we already
thought about talked about that in the
in the past Pete that’s like that’s why
I think nutritionists are usually not
pro keto people per se and they will
advise with a more balanced diet a no
carb so ok second thing second thing
like actually actually there is a little
there little chocolate Liz balls like
little balls made of chocolate let’s go
it looks very small so there’s Sam so
keep okay keep the carbs low at seven
grams per per balls like really like
small small little like 7 pounds raw so
they told us what was how much yeah oh
yeah the one that that’s like bugging me
with that
like there’s almonds I fuck up almonds
cacao powder coconut oil chia seeds
vanilla extract cinnamon shredded
coconuts the thing that’s but that bugs
me is it’s like the half cup of dates
pitted and dried especially dried so
that’s probably GI date dried dates so
that’s probably what give you even your
seven carbs per little serving go check
like Africa
dates because this at least we know that
makes sense servings okay I’m just
pointing out again like this is one of
those situations where what it looks
like to me is some Abal this about this
big and that’s seven grams of carbs the
thing that’s bothering me about that is
that if you like the average person he’s
not going to so you’re making ten each
one is seven but if I eat 321
so I mean 21 is still well within a
dessert so 49 okay okay afford to hold
the recipe yeah so divided by 10 so 5
okay so that I’m just kind of wondering
about half so not bad for low carb that
I would have trouble like to replace the
the dates because that’s what I’ll put
the consistency of the so yeah but again
you know what so far we’ve had two that
cannot low carb day it would actually
fit none of these work for keto but in a
low carb day it absolutely fits so far
we’re cuz like I said I think if it was
me I’m having three of those maybe four
so like we’re talking 28 mmm probably so
we’re talking 28th so but 20 it’s still
reasonable if you have 125 for your day
and this is dessert so I’m assuming this
is your last the thing that you’re
having in the evening okay the next one
something off the shelves perfectly free
frozen bytes so frozen bytes I am
feeling that it looks like sorry a fat
bomb or some sort okay all natural
you know the advantage like they they
refer to like here they’re portion
control so if you can have one little
ball there’s there’s there are like
little golf balls and how much 30
calories 5 grams of carb high okay 5
carbs fat 5 grams per little golf ball
how can you order stuff like we can’t
order stuff frozen stuff and I’m zone
like from Amazon about in the US you can
go to a store like in the Adyar this out
check out stuff ok let me check the
ingredient dog coconut ok Water Co
Queen ooh organ I hope you make rice
syrup solids organic rice syrup solids
sugar caramel actually sugar fish
contain less than 2% of algin gorgon
natural flavors picked in season so we
have fire guards no fiber so in five net
carbs per one piece 18 gram so it’s
available available on Amazon perfectly
free frozen bites vegan friendly frozen
treats are so oh but but it’s like $35
for how many in the box so it’s like
okay so the next one frozen berries and
coconut milk
I’m bit surprised with the coconut milk
so you checked the the the macros on
coconut milk in its history it says it’s
three in my in my capillary net grams of
carb okay so okay so be like my quantity
of like I guess I guess they making this
themselves I did just yeah but look I
have something that that’s what I did
find interesting with that so so so so
easy like this secret tip if you for
them if you do frozen berries and pour a
bit of canned coconut milk it Arden’s
and created those delicious shell so I
feel like it’s gonna be like do a
coating it could be nice like unlike an
icy and I and so far I think this is the
one of the lowest car be dessert
like depending on the amount of berries
sure so this is one you can make
yourself you just buy a bag of babies
and no I think the interesting thing
about that is is true basically they’re
saying have some for dessert yeah which
is like you know I guess in terms of
what we’ve had so far the least work
mmm-hmm just I’m always telling people
be careful about fructose
mm-hmm but I mean if you’re just having
it as a dessert you’re having it once in
a while it’s gonna be good yeah so so
far I mean I can totally see someone low
carb no problem so far with any of these
what’s the next one next one is dark
chocolate dark chocolate like yeah it’s
good but like just if you’re doing 70
yeah all right – did 90 70 and 75 enough
I would say yeah 70 70 on low carb or
probably 89 aeon on keto because like
even the the 7e look at the especially
if you do like some some brands have
dark chocolate and the one I do like
dark chocolate and sea salt but some
have dark chocolate in raspberries and
some other like I don’t buy 70 because I
mean I can fit two squares like to but
1770 would get like a good 10 grams of
carbs or something ah how many grams
50 okay this is a this this would be
like more than probably the real Irving
or maybe not so I’m just trying to see
like when you do 78 because I know
there’s a number that once you get to
the certain number it like drops
dramatically let me try 75 you’ve been
here too so you know the other thing and
I did notice is of all the chocolates
that you can buy there’s certain I’m not
gonna say the brand but there are
certain brands that even though they’re
saying 70 75 80 when you compare them to
other brands like some brands it’s they
are still adding sugar so like it’s you
when you actually read the ingredients
there’s so there’s there might be 80%
but they’ve added sugar so like you’re
taking away from the whole point of what
people are trying to do so I would also
encourage people to do that so just
double check your um you know what I say
to stick with 72% or more and you said
the one you were doing was 80 right Suzu
90 I do that carb 16-8 okay so probably
I ate four serving
like like I said but like that was
actually the fuckin nose talking about
that ad sure okay so okay so that’s it
for the chocolate but you know what
Charlotte is one of the first places
that people like when you’re when you’re
looking to like cut down and try this
chocolate on the first places because
most people are eating the chocolate is
so high in sugar yeah yeah so chocolate
one of the first places and you’re
struggling that you try to replace but
the funny thing I find at least for me
anyways is that like there’s that
balance between it tasting like what you
remember mmm and your ends and then the
value of eating something that’s a bit
bitter but just funny if on you story
what what brand of chocolate allure what
what brand of chocolate did you buy for
the kids like when we were on vacation
and you did with the de s’mores was
there I think yeah I could even stand
the smell of the chocolate bar oh yeah I
could even it’s like it was too I could
like smell the sweetness of the
chocolate I couldn’t well I didn’t like
it at all the funny thing is that like
comparing the two of us before I went
keto addicted to something I would say
chocolate would have been the thing like
mine like so the funny thing to me is
but I did I wasn’t addicted to dark
chocolate it was milk chocolate so okay
like the idea of eating dark chocolate
mmm nothing no interest to me at all
it’s gone hard to be addicted to dark
chocolate though especially in ninety
percent like after two squares I’m done
like I don’t know but that’s my point is
that that’s my point my point is that if
you would have put chocolate in front of
me it would have been gone in two
seconds but now it’s like if I’m looking
at eat dark chocolate or eating nothing
I’m I’m eating nothing like dark
chocolates like and again I I guess for
me if it like I have too good of a
memory for the things that I used to
like to eat replacements of them that
don’t taste that way hmm like and I’m
and maybe again maybe it’s just because
I am NOT a person who cares about food
so if there was something that I liked I
liked it because it tasted a certain way
so our replacement isn’t gonna do
it it’s either I’m eating that or I’m
not eating it hmm so happily for me most
of the stuff that I eat now are things
that I didn’t you see before anyways or
that or or that still tastes the same
because meat is meat is meat so but like
a lot of these things that were looking
at here like I couldn’t imagine eating
these things because they don’t fall in
line with what my taste buds one anymore
like all of this stuff that we were
naming except for the dark chocolate are
sweet things and my taste don’t want
sweet anymore so that’s another thing
that I think happens to keto people yeah
but these are local people they still
chasing so there’s these are gonna be
amazing for them but for cheeto people I
feel like especially once you’ve gotten
far into your into your journey I mean
I’m only a year and a half in and I
already feel this way I already feel
like trying to think what the last sweet
thing was that I actually had oh you
already talked about this tropic reading
but that was such a long time ago that
was like that was four months in when I
had that reaction to the strawberry
speaking of desert like you you did us a
few a few times some interesting dessert
no you know what the last main thing was
I had I just remembered what it was the
keto doughnuts that I made I remember I
couldn’t eat them hey Charlie I try I
made keitel doughnuts and then I
couldn’t even finish it it was like ah I
know yeah even it was like I couldn’t do
it it was like too much never good no
but you see this is the things like I’m
so far away from sweet stuff that it was
sweet and it was like I didn’t eat half
of it I don’t remember look like not
much anyway did like the little like
tart like avocado chocolate with peanut
butter that was good that was really the
relatively low carb but for sure little
is lower it was low carb but like it was
yeah I don’t know you had to work your
day around that so yeah of course
like because I mean when you like it was
probably half of your allowance I think
it is then I think it was yeah okay
but I mean that’s beet see now this is
again where I come back to you you can
fit anything in that you wanna fit yeah
right so now if I remember correctly on
the day that I made that I had a car
over day hmm
so okay
next thing on the list a little treat
you can buy of the Shelf like there’s a
halo halo top pops okay it’s an ice
cream it’s an ice cream treat and now
they’re making them on the stick so L o
io top pops have eight to nine grams of
carbs with two grams of fiber so six
seven net carbs is halo top the same
company that okay 28 bucks for four
boxes so another relatively yeah yeah
that’s the thing if you want to have
like your a little sweet treat once in a
while I think people like charge a
premium for that so how many is it like
they talked about 48 bucks sorry that
that’s US dollars for four boxes but
they there’s there’s there’s there’s
there’s only six pops so it’s it’s two
dollars each two bucks two bucks per pop
I’m trying to find the company I’m not
sure if it’s halo top that has that is
the company is just the one to try to
save the whales like the link from the
article like send me two to their
website so yeah so four boxes for 48
boxes six buck six pups per pax and they
seem to have it’s like which is not
super bad like they they look small but
like so good and you also sell them by
the point as well okay point is a little
container yeah a small they have a large
number of flavors what’s the what’s the
calorie count on that 50 years 50
calories 50 sorry st calories did I say
Cal yeah I’m sorry what’s it what’s the
carb count than that huh carb like 6 or
6 to 7 net 6 to 7 yeah six to seven six
seven depending on the flavor because we
have this absolutely fits it this could
even could possibly even fit into a keto
day if you wanted to make it fit 6 yeah
Sixers no never and I mean if you’re if
I’m assuming that the size of that is
the typical
size of a little ice cream thing then
that’s that that’s I would say that’s
reasonable even if you were doing keto
yeah I do like I was do is a dessert
that we’re talking his hurt so it’s
right at the end of your meal
it’s rounding up your rounding up the
carb count for the day if you track it
then for sure that’s like totally that’s
totally doable for most people if they
want to have a dessert yeah I feel like
though the next one is probably even
better it’s a recipient so not something
you buy so I made strawberry yogurt pops
so 1111 grams of carbs in each why is
that better than five I’m not sure I
didn’t see but let’s see let’s see so so
what they put like only four ingredients
a quarter cup of nonfat Greek yogurt
that’s probably the problem you should
mom maybe the full fat wouldn’t like fat
because that’s more sugar in there like
I’ve seen Greek yogurt with like very
low carbs like the equivalent of my iPad
but okay but one quarter cup of
strawberry halves but in like four like
this half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon
and I hate of native vanilla extract
but then blender puree that people
infuser so I think legs probably related
to that the card count is gonna be
influenced by the yogurt you choose and
also the strawberries yeah yeah of
course
how much some season they were because
the more they were ripe the more they’re
sweet but the other thing that I would
point out about this is that because
it’s um it’s yogurt there’s probably
another one of those ones there since
your since you’re doing low carbon hot
to make you know if you put a little bit
of milk in the each of the containers
and just like wet it a little bit before
you throw that stuff and it probably
come out easy that’s just a little
baking tips like I used to like like but
like anyway so yeah there’s always be
fruit and cottage cheese but like not
through babies I
more say so blueberries like the image
here I have is like more like
blueberries in a strawberry and cottage
cheese
so maybe what are they saying the okay
okay two ounces again to again no that
makes no sense
two ounces of light cottage cheese you
wanna go probably with the full fat
cottage cheese like they’re the highest
and – fresh – fresh figs like they’re
talking about figs but the image is like
showing a strawberry in debate so two
ounces of light cottage cheese and two
fresh figs like go go with the berries
instead equal ten grams of carbs so
maybe you have some numbers for the
cottage cheese I can only find what it
says regular or Korean for seven net
carbs per cup okay okay that’s not bad
so if you have a cup of 4% cottage
cheese yes you babies 1414 yeah so you
don’t want none that’s surprising
horrible I feel like those recipes are
low-carb because okay so these are
nutritionists mmm so it’s not surprising
to me that they’re saying to go use a
low fat right because the nutritionist
even though they’re aiming at low-carb
they’re still gonna send you 20 low-fat
sure but the thing is is that in this
case going for the going for the low-fat
puts your carb count so high anybody
who’s actually trying to do low-carb it
would be better for you to go for the
regular fat – really because the cottage
cheese is gonna be much better for you
at the regular fat level and this is you
talking difference between you’re
talking difference between like zero
percent 1 percent of 2 percent of 4
percent like is like the percentage is
low compared to us with the benefit of
not having the fat I’m sorry of having
the fat is gonna give you okay the last
one yes it’d be okay
gingerbread smoothie that’s why I was
surprised I let’s go with like what’s in
that yeah again okay 1313 carbs per
serving 13 that’s a bit high okay so we
have one frozen banana
one cup of unsweetened almond milk 2
teaspoons of light molasses so sweet one
teaspoon of vanilla extract 1 teaspoon
of ground ground flaxseed half a
teaspoon of cinnamon ginger and half a
scoop of protein powder probably to help
hold it like all together if you can me
if you make four and probably put that
in blender in well you have the banana
it’s like why do molasses if you have
banana because my son is gonna like
because sweetener what I mean is 13 and
I’m looking at the size of the cup that
they have there so like if she’s not a
very um I gotta cough yeah I mean I
would guess maybe Africa maybe 125 mils
of that mix yeah it looks like yeah it
looks like a good one I’m just trying to
see you said a darker you said dark
molasses or you know like molasses oh
let me laughs – teaspoon 1 teaspoon
gives 5.2 so 2 teaspoons is giving 10
those 10 10 if you make if you make 4 so
you must be making more than one because
it’s at 13 right the whole thing
oh no this must be makes 3 servings so
you get a turd of banana you get like
2/3 of 2/3 of masses must be pudding
powder protein powder so it’s like there
was protein again it’s the same thing I
said of a protein powder before we are
protein bars or protein whatever like
when you have processed protein is gonna
be in absorb faster and maybe turned
into sugar so I’m not so sure about that
one I think you there’s a bit that they
are bitter I mean in at the end of the
day all of these do what’s unfortunate
which just pushes you towards sweet
which pushes toward running more sweet
so we’re chasing sweet but again
remember these are low carb people me
the good thing about low carb is that
you can do low carb and keep it low
sweet at the same time Yeah right like
you can do low carb and part of the
reason I didn’t want to start giving
ideas and examples of how to do like the
avocado thing in a keto way or because I
feel like one of the things that it’s
good to understand is that even though
you
have a dessert that has actually no
sugar in it so it’s made with stevia or
some other something that’s that tastes
sweet but it has no carbs in it it still
can engage your cephalic response so the
taste system and your body reacts as if
you ate sugar and so even though you
didn’t you still chase the sugar so if
you’re already eating sweet things and
you want to use some of these recipes I
think they’re great ideas because they
are in terms of what you could mean that
you could be having a chocolate bar for
dessert right so like in terms of that
like having this is a much better option
any of the things that was on that list
actually is a much better option than a
chocolate bar so let me go for it is
what I’m saying but the flipside of the
coin is even when you’re doing Lokar you
can do low carb so 125 grams or less and
it gives you such a wider range of
vegetables that you can eat such a wider
range of like you can even add back a
few like grains and some again I still
wouldn’t add fruit just because fructose
but but you can add that so many wings
yeah and your budget budget then you can
yes then dessert this is my point you
can do my dessert so I would definitely
say if you do low-carb even focusing
your attention on allowing your carbs to
come from things that are less sweet
tasting will help you hmm
right just because at least the
emotional part of the sweet you could
start to work on
you’re still gonna engage the dopamine
here there’s there’s no way of getting
around that you eat carbs you engage
that dopamine hit but without the
sweetness your step ahead right but I
did like I liked it because everything
that they actually gave was less than I
would say 40 grams like oh here anything
that even touched 40 grams no so even
when we did mean even we said we would
have more than one it still didn’t come
up to like I think the hardest number
was 30 yeah so to me that’s a win yeah
clearly
actually so hey we actually have a few
positive article by a dietitian oh yeah
that came in as a winner
I’m impressed here okay so oh yeah for
those of you who’ve made it all the way
