Halloween on Keto! Spooky Nut Butter Cups

Halloween is just around the corner and with it comes the temptation of Candy!!! It is everywhere. Bags and Bowls of bite-sized candy show up the front of every grocery store at the office, and at every social gathering.  But don't worry, I've got some tips to help you resist those carb-heavy candies. 

1) Remember that you started Keto to live a healthier life. Don't forget that you are doing something kind to yourself by sticking to your lifestyle choices. Keto is not a punishment. It is a choice you make to be your best self. 

2) You can still enjoy treats this Halloween, just make sure they are Keto. Brands like Nui Cookies and Know Foods have delicious Keto Treats that will satisfy your sweet tooth without undoing your hard work. 

3) Get Creative- Make your own Keto Candy! Choc Zero has Keto Chocolate and Fruit Syrups. Use these keto ingredients to make Keto Nut Butter Cups, Fruity Lollipops, and Snickerdoodle Chocolate Bark with Pecans, Bacon, and Sea Salt.

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.

Perfect Keto Nut Butter is Back! #HowINutButter

As I have said before in my review of Perfect Keto Nut Butter , my daughter Kaia loves this stuff! She especially enjoys it on her favorite veggie, Celerey. 

That's why we are so excited that Perfect Keto Nut Butter is back in stock! They have been sold out for months!

Because of poor vanilla bean harvests in Madagascar in recent years, the price of vanilla has sky-rocketed. But Perfect Keto is dedicated to using only the best ingredients, so they patiently waited for Madagascar Vanilla to come back on to the market. And the wait is over!!!!

Perfect Keto Nut Butter is a blend of Macadamia, Cashew, Coconut, Vanilla, and MCT! MCT oil supports mental clarity and sharpness, gives a natural energy boost, and helps maintain normal hormone and digestive function.

There are no weird ingredients or low quality oils which can be an issue with some store bought nut butters.

If you’ve never had it, Perfect Keto Nut Butter is the ultimate snack for a low-carbohydrate or ketogenic lifestyle.

Thick, rich and velvety, this nut butter is perfect on its own, or added to favorite recipes and smoothies. Bake with it, drizzle it on your favorite keto sweets, or just dunk a stick of celery right into the jar.

This week, to celebrate Perfect Keto Nut Butter being back in stock,thousands of people will be using the the hashtag #HowINutButter to show how they use it. Add a picture of your favorite way to enjoy nut butter to join in the fun and get some great snack ideas.

Perfect Keto's Perform: A Keto Pre-Workout and Sports Drink

I tend to get a lot of questions about exercise and the Ketogenic Lifestyle. I have heard that some people experience fatigue when they try to adhere to a strict work-out regimen on the Keto Diet. My answer has always been Electrolytes. Consuming electrolytes is one of the easiest ways to avoid fatigue and headaches when first switching to Keto.  

Although I still believe that Smart Water can change the world, I have recently discovered a Keto Sports Drink that really does fuel your exercise while avoiding early burn out. 

Perfect Keto Perform is the only sports drink that is made for the Ketogenic Lifestyle. Most workout supplements are loaded with fillers and sugar. But Perfect Keto's Perform is gives you clean, natural energy with out all of that junk. It helps you stay in ketosis while maximizing your exercise performance- so your body gets twice the benefits.

Perfect Keto Perform contains keto-friendly ingredients:

  • 7.7g BHB - one of the ketone bodies that provides your body with energy in the absence of glucose

  • 5g MCT - rapidly digested and readily used for energy.

  • BCAAs - support muscle performance!

  • Creatine - supports increased muscle output.

  • L-citrulline - delays muscle fatigue and supports immune function.

  • Beta alanine - supports muscular strength and increased power output.

  • Caffeine - from green tea, promotes prolonged alertness during workouts.

To use Perfect Keto Perform: Mix 1/2 - 1 scoop with 8-10 ounces of water or a shake and drink it 15-30 minutes before exercising. If you are working out for a prolonged period of time, drink 1/2 scoop with water every hour.

I prefer to mix the shake with just water. The lemon flavor is very reminiscent of Lemon-Lime Gatorade, and I love it!

KETO RECIPE: Pumpkin Baby Bundts

This Keto Pumpkin Cake recipe is my daughter Kaia's absolute favorite thing in the whole world. No need to wait until fall to eat pumpkin, I buy my canned pumpkin at Target and they carry it all year around.


I've featured this Keto Pumpkin Cake Recipe on the site before. Sarah @livinglowcarbhighfat shared this recipe with me during her Ketogenic Tips & Tricks Interview on this blog. This morning I topped it with cream cheese glaze and Choc Zero's Maple Pecan syrup drizzled on top for a delicious, over-the-top breakfast.

bundt pum.jpg

This cute and decadent little keto cake has about 4g of carbs and about 25g of fat! The key to keeping it low carb is Choc Zero .

Choc Zero 's Honest syrups are totally keto-friendly. They have no sugar, no carbs, and no preservatives. Today I chose to top these cakes with their Maple Pecan Flavored Syrup, but they have all different types of flavors. Some of my favorites are the blueberry, raspberry and chocolate syrups.

KETO REVIEW: Perfect Keto's Micro Greens Powder

When first switching to Keto, Macros were definitely my main focus. The shift from a normal low-carb diet to a full-time Ketogenic lifestyle was huge, and I wanted to make sure that nothing was going to keep me from success. I calculated my ideal Macros and dug in. 

When making such a huge shift in our lives, it is easy to forget the small stuff: The Micros. 

These Micronutrients are found in fruits and vegetables and are essential to our long-term health and even to our success in Ketosis. Living a low-carb life means avoiding many of these very fruits and vegetables, but now I can get all of my micronutrients and a boost of MCT fuel with Perfect Keto's Micro Greens Powder.

Perfect Keto Micro Greens Powder contains:

  • Greens and vegetable blend. 4.5 grams of raw organic greens and vegetables coming from 12 different plants that contain all of the phytonutrients and none of the wasteful product.

  • Berry and fruit blend. 4.5 grams of raw organic berries coming from 10 different sources.

  • MCT Powder. 3.5 grams from coconut oil fat to help absorb vitamins, minerals, and plants. MCT is readily accessible by your brain for energy.

  • Liver support enzymes. These enzymes were included to help you deliver the nutrients without wasting any of the micronutrients of the product.

  • Digestive enzymes. These were included so your body can break down the plant nutrients more efficiently.

  • Reishi Mushroom. A powerful compound that helps decrease inflammation, fatigue, skin problems and anxiety.

  • Inositol. A naturally occurring ingredient in plants that help nerve conduction, fat breakdown and insulin regulation.

Perfect Keto Micro Greens Powder was designed to be a Multivitamin. I prefer to mix one scoop into a large glass of water in the afternoon and down it, like it was intened. The Lemon flavor is strong but pleasent, and I love the little boost of afternoon MCT energy.

It would also taste great in a smoothie with some fresh raspberries, Perfect Keto Collagen Powder, and lots of ice.
