Equip Food's Pre-Workout PureWOD

Keto is an amazing WOE (way of eating) for athletes! It keeps inflammation down, helps with muscle recovery, and trains your body to use fat for fuel.

Many athletes and exercize lovers use a Pre-Workout to help them focus during thier gym sessions and give thier performance a little boost. But pre-workouts are usually filled with all kinds of crap: sugar, fillers, bonding agents, etc.

One of the key elements of a ketogenic lifestyle is eating clean whole ingredients. So where can you get your KETO Pre-workout boost???

Check out Equip's PureWOD Pre-Workout!

I love Equip's whole food approach to supplements. They use real ingredients and never add sugar or artificial junk.

In addition to performance fueling amino acids like Beta- Alanine, each serving of Equip's PureWOD Pre-Workout has a cup of coconut water and 2 cups of green tea powder.

The coconut water keeps you hydrated and the green tea gives you clean energy that burns slowly. The combination of the two ensures that you won't get that dreaded crash.

Equip's PureWOD Pre-Workout contains less than 1g of Carbs. Woohoo!!!

Equip's PureWOD Pre-Workout comes in two flavors: Goji Berry and Blackberry Lemon. You can add your pre-workout to your favorite shake or smoothie or bake it into Keto goods.

I like the Blackberry Lemon flavor by itself. I shake it up with water and ice. It tastes just like a fancy fruit infused tea.

I recommend drinking this keto pre-workout about a half hour before starting your workout. This little boost of energy is just what I need to get my workout started. You can also sip on Equip's PureWOD Pre-Workout during or after your workout if you need the extra energy for the rest of your day.

Matcha Lattes are now Keto with Perfect Keto!

I often talk about my love for coffee. But lately, I have really been loving matcha lattes. The health benefits are amazing, and I love the clean energy it gives me. I really enjoy the rich earthy taste and how well it blends with fats like coconut milk and MCT Oil. But not all matcha teas are created equal. It’s actually really hard to find green tea matcha powder that has no added sugar.

Beware! Unsweetened Matcha at Starbucks are not a thing. As this Spoon University article points out, there is sugar in the Matcha powder itself at Starbucks. Even if you say unsweetened, you are still getting 32g of Sugar in a Grande Matcha Latte. While there are still plenty of other keto options at Starbucks, this is not one of them.

One of the only Matcha Tea mixtures I've found without Sugar is the Perfect Keto MCT Oil Powder in Matcha.

Perfect Keto Matcha makes the ultimate Keto Matcha Latte. It contains ceremonial green tea powder, Mct Oil Powder, and Stevia.

Just add hot water or coconut milk and froth up to make the perfect fatty keto latte.

The Health Benefits of Matcha are amazing! Matcha Tea is packed full of antioxidents. In fact there are the same number of antioxidents in one serving of Matcha as there are in ten cups of regular brewed green tea.

It's been known to improve blood flow, lower cholesterol, and keep blood sugar levels stable. Matcha also Boosts metabolism and burns calories. It is a perfect addition to your Keto lifestyle.

Perfect Keto Matcha Powder doesn't have to be used for lattes alone. Add a serving to your midday smoothie or your prework out snack for 1/2 the amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee. Or if you have a huge day ahead, mix this right into your coffee.

If you love the benefits of MCT Oil Powder but want a little added flavor and sweetness, try the Matcha Powder out. You'll be surprised by how delicious it is.

40497374_1782078501841034_248156794556480456_n.jpg

Choc Zero Chocolate Bark is my absolute favorite keto chocolate.

Choc Zero sells all different flavors: Peanut, Coconut, Hazelnut, and Almond. Each flavor comes in Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate.

My Favorite is the Dark Chocolate Hazlenut Bark. It has the perfect balance of salty, bitter, and sweet. The Hazlenut adds an almost Nutella-like flavor. The Best Part? Each Serving of Bark, a whole bar, only has 2g net Carbs.

After a long day, It is wonderful to know that I can treat myself to a chocolatey dessert without messing up my Macros.

Choc Zero recently changed the packaging of their Bark. Each Bar/Piece now comes individually wrapped. It is perfect to throw in your bag and take anywhere: the movies, a weekend away, the office, anywhere.

Choc Zero Chocolate Bark is already a great price. Without the Keto In The City Discount, A box of 6 bars is only 6.99. That's way less than you can find premium regular chocolate in a grocery store.

I love that even though Choc Zero makes premium, specialty, keto chocolate, they still sell it at an affordable price and ship it right to your door. And You can get an extra 10% off you entire order with the discount code KETOINTHECITY.

The Wait is Over! Perfect Keto now has Coffee!

I am obsessed with Coffee!!!

But….. I never make coffee at home during the week. I’m always in a rush to get my life together and get my daughter and I out the door. There is simply no room in my morning schedule to wait for my Keto Coffee to froth up.

I usually wait until after I drop my daughter off at school and stop by a coffee shop on the way to work. However, on the most hectic days, I am forced to wait until I get to my office in downtown before I get my caffeine fix.

But I have a feeling that my morning routine is going to get a whole lot easier now that Perfect Keto has launched thier new Perfect Keto Coffee!!!

Perfect Keto's Instant Coffee is made from 100% Arabica Freeze-Dried Organic Mexican coffee beans and MCT oil powder from organic coconuts.

It is your classic Keto Coffee in one easy and portable step. Perfect Keto's Instant Coffee comes in already portioned single packets that you can take with you anywhere.

Just add water!

Perfect Keto Coffee comes in three different flavors: Mocha, French Vanilla, Unflavored (classic coffee).

The Mocha and French Vanilla flavors give you a chance to spice up your regular coffee routine.

  • Add some cayenne to the Mocha for Mexican Hot Chocolate Coffee.
  • Use hot almond milk instead of water for a French Vanilla Latte

The possibilities are endless!

On days when I have no time to stop at my favorite coffee shop, it's nice to know that Perfect Keto has got my back. Perfect Keto Coffee will ensure that I never have to brave my morning commute without Caffeine again.

Nui is Turning 2!!!

Nui Cookies is celebrating thier 2nd Birthday at the end of September! Let's help them celebrate!!!!

I am so glad that these Keto Cookies exist. They are one of my favorite keto sweets.

There is no shame in rewarding yourself with a little sweet treat at the end of a long day. For me, this treat is a goo-ey Nui Cookie . I love to heat them up and add a drizzle of Keto Chocolate or a spead of Cream Cheese or Keto Buttercream Frosting (recipe below).

Nui Cookies are also a great way to show someone you care. Is your co-worker having an awful day? Toss them a Nui Cookie.

Is your friend just starting a Low Carb High Fat Diet and in need of some encouragement? Send some Nui Cookies to thier house.

If you want to get really fancy, top your Nui Cookies with some frosting.

KETO BUTTERCREAM FROSTING

  • 10-12 oz cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 stick (cup) butter (softened)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Sweetener of choice (I used confectioners swerve to taste)
  • I also put a couple tbsp of heavy cream in the buttercream to thin it out a bit, that part is optional

Nui Cookies is currently selling thier Peanut Butter, Double Chocolate, and the limited edition Crispy Chocolate Chip.

Why only these flavors? Because Nui sells out of thier cookies so quickly. I am surprised that they still have Chocolate Chip cookies in stock.

I just put in my order and would encourage you to stock up for fall now before they sell out.

Don't forget to use the discount code KETOINTHECITY for 10% off your entire Nui Order!

THE BIG BOOK OF KETO RECIPE: Blueberry-Coconut Smoothie

I love all things blueberry, so it is no surprise that I like this smoothie! It's a little different from most smoothies I make because there is no ice in it, which makes it super creamy. It's a little higher in net carbs but is super filling and works great for a full meal, leaving you satisfied. I like to drink this for lunch when I have a high-protein meal planned for later in the day.

 

My new cookbook, The Big Book of Keto Diet Cooking, ships tomorrow!!! Order now on Amazon
