Do you ever dream of indulging in the same dishes you used to crave before you decided to eat healthily? Yes, it is possible with Keto Restaurant Favorites, a few smart adjustments, and substitutions. Moreover, Maria Emmerich says, it is a lot less costly to eat Keto recipes. She says that fried rice can be made from cauliflower or even eggs. Tortillas and sandwich bread can be made low-carb or even no carb. In a lot of cases, it is all about the sauce and Maria has packed this book with to-die-for sauces, from Alfredo to enchilada to stir-fry sauce. Saving money is not the real benefit of eating Keto, it is healthy eating. The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, moderate protein, low carb way of eating that helps the body to burn fat instead of sugar for energy with amazing health benefits. Along with essential basics, you find breakfasts, appetizers, salads, soups, main dishes, side dishes, and desserts from five categories: Chinese, Japanese, and Korean like cream cheese wontons; Italian like stuffed mushrooms; Mexican and Latin American like cheesy chile rellenos; Indian, Thai and other Southeast Asian like chicken korma; and American fast-casual like bacon cheeseburger. To say that the recipes are delicious, scrumptious and mouth-watering is understating the benefits of Keto diet. The ketogenic diet is a healthier way of eating because it shifts your body from being a sugar burner to fat burner. It supports better health and improves everything from epilepsy to obesity to autoimmune disease and more.
