Keto Base

Perfect Keto sells the best Exogenous Ketones around! The supplement is called Keto Base. It comes in 5 different flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Peach, Coffee. This powder incorporates well into Water, Coffee, Smoothies and Baked goods and tastes great.

Perfect Keto’s Keto Base contains BHB. “Beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) is a naturally occurring molecule called a ketone body. It is one of the main molecules that provides your body with energy in the absence of glucose.”-Perfectketo.com

It gives your body Ketones to help you get into Ketosis and give you a long lasting boost of Energy. I like to add Keto Base into my coffee in the morning to give me an energy boost and curb my hunger while Intermittent fasting. It gives you great energy before a workout or if you find yourself in an afternoon slump.

Perfect Keto just redid the formula for their Keto Base to eliminate some bitterness in the old recipe. It now tastes better than ever! If you tried Keto Base before and didn’t like it, I would encourage you to give it another shot.

MCT OIL Powder

“MCT's are a unique type of fatty acid found in coconut oil that are a much faster source of energy than most longer chain fatty acids. MCTs support mental clarity and sharpness.”

Lots of companies sell MCT Oil, but this is the only MCT Oil Powder I’ve ever found. Perfect Keto takes their premium C8 MCT Oil and puts it in powder form for more versatility. Instead of just whipping it up in your coffee, you can now bake with MCT and make creamy and delicious shakes.

The MCT Oil Powder also comes in a bunch of Flavors including regular unflavored, Vanilla, Chocolate, and Matcha. Matcha is one of my favorite flavors- it combines all of the goodness of MCT with the antioxidants and caffeine of Matcha.

MCT’s give your brain a quick boost in energy, help you think clearly and stay focused. They also keep you full longer.



Prime Protein

I have never found a protein powder with so few ingredients! Equip’s Chocolate Prime Protein has Just Grass Fed Beef Protein, Cocoa Powder, and Stevia! Are you kidding me?!!!

The Craziest Part? It tastes delicious! It is chocolatey and creamy and rich!

The grass fed beef protein has naturally occurring collagen and gelatin that keeps your body happy and your belly full!

It is so simple just 24g of Protein and nothing else! For me, this protein powder is a no brainer. If you are looking for a plant based protein powder, check out Prine Plants also made by Equip!

Micro-Greens

One of the things that we have to be mindful of when starting Keto is getting enough vitamins and minerals from Fruits Veggies!

Most Fruit has a ton of sugar! And Although I try to eat Veggies at every meal, I could still use some help. Equip Food’s Micro Greens is a powdered supplement made from 100 percent Whole Foods.

Micro Greens is a green supplement that gives you 14 servings of 22 different Fruits and Veggies in every serving.

Micro greens has no fillers or chemicals- so it has a slightly bitter taste. But it blends up really nicely into smoothies!

When you are feeling under the weather or inflamed you can double your serving for extra nutrients.

Transitioning to a Ketogenic Lifestyle is not always easy. It’s important to fill your Keto Toolbox with things that make living a Keto Lifestyle easier!

My favorite Perfect Keto Products for Summer

I was chatting with my friends over at Perfect Keto this week and they offered to let me share an exclusive discount just for Keto in the City.

Don’t know who/what Perfect Keto is?

Perfect Keto is one of my favorite brands. I’ve been using their products for years! It was founded by Dr. Anthony Gustin to make eating low-carb easier. He even has a podcast (The Keto Answers Podcast).

Perfect Keto offered to give Keto In the City an exclusive 2-day sale on all of their products. You can get 20% off of your entire purchase when you use the code KETOINTHECITY20.

Keep reading for a list of my favorite Perfect Keto Products.

My Favorite Perfect Keto Products for Summer

  1. Keto Collagen: The Perfect Keto Collagen is awesome. It is my favorite addition to summer shakes and smoothies. It adds amazing flavor (it comes in Chocolate, Vanilla, Salted Caramel, and Unflavored) and a rich texture. Perfect Keto’s Collagen is great for joints and gut health as well as skin, nails, and hair.

  2. MCT OIL POWDER: I love MCT, but a lot of times I don’t want it in an oil form. The Oil makes it difficult to add into smoothies, desserts, and baked goods without changing the recipes. I love Perfect Keto’s MCT Oil Powder because I can incorporate it into anything. It’s the same high quality MCT Oil you expect from Perfect Keto just in a powder form.

  3. Keto Base in Peach: One of my favorite summer fruits used to be Peaches. However, they are naturally extremely high in sugar and definitely not KETO! That’s why I love this Peach flavored Keto Base! I Exogenous Ketones help your body get into Ketosis and stay there. They give you easy accessible energy and get rid of brain fog. Perfect Keto Base comes in a bunch of different flavors: chocolate, Salted Caramel, Vanilla, Peach, and Coffee! The Peach flavor is my favorite for summer. I even add it to my Keto Pancake Batter for Peaches and Cream Pancakes.

Perfect Keto has a bunch of amazing supplements. Check out their pre-workout and Microgreens supplements too! You honestly can’t go wrong with Perfect Keto products!

Hurry! This sale is only available July 30-31!!

Perfect Keto's Improved Keto Bases are Here

Perfect Keto’s amazing Ketone Base just got BETTER. Today, Perfect Keto released their new base recipe. Their new exogenous ketone mix is just as effective as before but with better flavor. 

I have used the Salted Caramel and Peach flavors for years. I love the long lasting energy and easily accessible Ketones, but I always had to mix it in with some other flavored liquid like coffee or a smoothie. Last week, I got to try the new Keto Base Formula and I didn’t even need to stir it up in my coffee. This new formula tastes delicious with just water and ice!

I’m so glad that I don’t have to plan out a smoothie or a cup of coffee anymore when I want some extra Ketones. I can just stir a scoop or two of Keto Base into a glass of water. I like that I can drink this to quench my mid-morning snack cravings and be full all the way into the late afternoon when I finally get a chance to grab lunch.

 

The new Perfect Keto Base still comes in all of your favorite flavors: Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Peach, Coffee, and Vanilla. It still has the same amount of Exogenous Ketones per serving, 11.38g of BHB and no garbage ingredients. Now, It just tastes a lot better.


The folks at Perfect Keto have been kind enough to offer a 20% discount to any body who uses the code KETOINTHECITY at checkout!

 I have a feeling that this new Perfect Keto Base is going to sell out quickly. If I were you I would grab a couple tubs of your favorite flavor this week before they are gone.

Kettle and Fire is helping people actually stick to their Keto Diets and change their lives with the Keto Bundle. Right now they are offering up to 15% off their delicious Keto Bone Broth when you buy it in a bundle. I sip Kettle and Fire Bone broth to keep me full and add a bunch of amazing nutrients into my diet.  

Kettle and Fire Bone Broth can help you enjoy going Keto! 

Kettle and Fire is my favorite brand of Bone Broth. It makes me feel amazing! It gives me energy and whenever I’m feeling under the weather or just off, it always makes me feel better. It has a ton of collagen and keeps you full for a long time. Kettle and Fire’s Beef Bone Broth has zero grams of Carbs or Sugar and It’s delicious. If you don’t love sipping bone broth like I do, you can always use Kettle and Fire Broth as a base for a Keto Soup. Add some Veggies, chicken, cheese and make it the Keto soup of your dreams.

Kettle and Fire was created by two brothers who are both athletes. They wanted the experience of home made nutrient rich Bone Broth but didn’t have time to cook it at home.

This Keto Bundle Sale is often. The more cartons of Bone Broth you buy, the bigger discount you get! Kettle and Fire Bone Broth is shelf stable so you can store it for a while before it goes bad. I am going to order the Ultimate Keto Bundle in order to get the 25% off discount. This way I save money and invest in my health for the next couple of months. If I have bone broth, I will use it and drink it. AND I will feel awesome! That’s why I like to keep it around!

Grab your bone broth now and get a huge savings!!!

Keto Supplements: Ceylon Cinnamon Capsules

Cinnamon is one of my favorite ingredients! It is absolutely delicious but it’s also so good for us!

“Research has supported the benefits of cinnamon by showing its ability to support healthy immune and cellular function, healthy carbohydrate metabolism, promote normal digestion, improve blood glucose control, combat inflammation, and support healthy cardiovascular function.” -Equip Foods

However, It is really hard to consume enough cinnamon in one day to get all of these amazing benefits. (There are only so many Fat Head Cinnamon Rolls a girl can eat!)

That’s why I was so grateful when I found out that Equip foods was launching their Ceylon Cinnamon Supplement!

Every serving (2 caps) of Equip Cinnamon Caps contains 1,200 mg of Ceylon Cinnamon.  Ceylon Cinnamon is more beneficial than other types of Cinnamon. It is free of Cassia and other compounds that are said to be toxic in large doses.

Equip Cinnamon caps are known to help with digestion, give you more energy, and even reduce the effects of a higher carb meal. Cinnamon is also famous for being an anti-inflammatory.

Equip found a way to make getting all of the benefits of large quantities of cinnamon with out having to endure a mouthful of spice or a bellyache. These Ceylon Cinnamon Caps are made with the highest quality ingredients and were designed to fit into your Keto Lifestyle.

Perfect Keto- Exogenous Ketone Capsules

Hooray! Perfect Keto has just launched their new Exogenous Ketone Capsules!

 You can now get all of the benefits of Exogenous Ketones with out chugging down smoothies and vitamin drinks. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good smoothie. But sometimes cutting fruits and veggies, and cleaning out the blender doesn’t fit into my day. I love that I can now get a boost of Ketones whenever and where ever.

Perfect Keto’s new Base Supplement contains high-quality beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) that makes it easy for you to get into Ketosis. These BHBs closely mimic the ketones in your body and work the exact same way! They fuel your body and your brain!

These Exogenous Ketone capsules also give you long lasting energy through out the day. I can take these with my probiotic in the morning and not have to depend on an afternoon coffee to get me through the work day. It also gets me motivated to get moving even on my busiest days. Just take it an hour before you want to work out and enjoy a nice boost as you step into the gym.

I’ve used Perfect Keto Ketone Base powder for years and love the effects. I’m so excited that the same product I’ve come to rely on now comes in a convenient and mess free capsule. These capsules are perfect for traveling or everyday use. I couldn’t be more excited! And you can get 20% off your entire Perfect Keto order when you use the code KETOINTHECITY!

Just Thrive Probiotics


Let’s talk about Gut Health!

When I decided to switch to a Ketogenic Lifestyle, I was hoping to reduce the inflammation in my body. I was on a mission to boost my immune system and reduce the symptoms of my autoimmune conditions.

Gut health is a big focus for me because I know how tied it is to my overall health. I started using Just Thrive probiotics and noticed a big difference in my gut’s overall happiness within days.

As you probably know our GI tract houses bacteria that contribute to more than just digestion. These beneficial bacteria help our bodies digest food and absorb nutrients, produce vitamins and vital nutrients, stimulate healthy immune function, destroy disease-causing microbes, promote healthy skin, and boost our mood and brainpower.

Pretty much everyone I know has some sort of GI issue. Environmental toxins, antibiotics, stress, and many other factors can decrease the amount of healthy bacteria in our bodies causing an imbalance.

This is where probiotics come in.


Probiotics are spores of good bacteria that occur naturally in foods or can be taken as a supplement to get your gut balanced. Foods like Yogurt, Kimchi, and Kombucha have natural occurring probiotics. But if you have a bacterial imbalance, a probiotic supplement is your best bet.

I’ve recently discovered the brand Just Thrive. Their probiotics have a better survivability than those found in yogurt and other brands. This means that the good bacteria will stay alive long enough to get all the way into your GI tract where it can do the most good. Their products are vegan and Keto friendly. And they have a 100% money back guarantee. Just Thrive probiotics contains a unique blend of four probiotic spores that have been strategically designed to give you the most health benefits.

Also did you know you can use Just Thrive probiotics in recipes!? Their strains are SO strong that you can cook AND bake with them-- up to 455 degrees!! Here's a recipe for a Spicy Chocolate Fat Bomb with Probiotic Goodness Added in.

Get Exogenous Ketones with Perfect Keto Base

Need a little extra boost?

Try adding Perfect Keto's Base to your routine. This exogenous ketone base increases energy and helps you become fat adapted.

Exogenous Ketones are basically like Ketone freebies. They are an amazing fuel source that replicates the natural effect of the ketogenic diet in your body by giving your body ketones to burn.

This helps your body transition in to Ketosis and gives your brain extra fuel leading to a boost in energy and overall mood.

It was developed by the folks over at Perfect Keto for people who are already fat adapted and for people who are just starting out. It can be used through out the day to help raise your blood ketone levels.

In this video below, Perfect Keto’s founder Dr. Anthony Gustin talks about the benefits of adding Keto Base to your daily routine.


I love to use Perfect Keto Base in my morning coffee. The salted caramel flavor is my favorite. You can also add Keto Base to a pre-workout smoothie for added energy throughout the day.

Perfect Keto base also helps reduce carb cravings when you are first starting out on keto. Mix up a little ketone base in your favorite milk. It tastes delicious and will actually help you towards your goal of being fully fat adapted. (If consumed too late in the day, Exogenous Ketones may affect sleep- it is brain fuel after all )

Perfect Keto’s Ketone Base also comes in individual serving packets. They are great for traveling or to keep in your desk. Perfect Keto Base comes in five flavors: Chocolate, Coffee, Salted Caramel, Vanilla, and Peaches and Cream. The single packets are also a great way to try out a new flavor without having to commit to an entire tub.

What is Krill Oil, and is it good for you?

As you know, the folks at Perfect Keto offer 20% off to anyone who uses the code KETOINTHECITY. They recently introduced a new supplement called Krill Oil. But before I gave it my endorsement, I had to figure out what in the heck it was!!!

Aren’t Krill the little animals that whales eat?

Yes They are!

As it turns out Krill Oil is a Fish Oil alternative. Most people take fish oil for the Omega 3 fatty acids. Our body does not make Omega 3 and has to get it from our diet. The Benefits of Omega 3 are:

  • Brain Health and Development

  • Reduced Risk of Heart Disease

  • Reduced Inflammation

  • Helps Build Lean Muscle Mass

Fish Oil is derived from fatty fish. “Most fatty fish used to produce fish oil do not produce omega-3 fatty acids, but instead, accumulate omega-3s as a result of consuming microalgae or smaller fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids.” (Perfect Keto)

Krill Oil is different. The Fatty Acids found in Krill are structured differently and have been found to work with you body better. In addition to really high levels of Omega 3, Krill oil also conains other healthy fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins A, E, B12, and Folate.

Krill Oil can also be more sustainably harvested than Fish Oil. It doesn’t contribute to overfishing.

Here’s my take away. If you aren’t getting enough Omega 3 in your diet and would like to see some of the benefits of adding a supplement to your daily routine, try out Krill Oil!

Remember, supplements take some time to start working. So be patient and give it about 6 weeks. Also don’t forget to use the code KETOINTHECITY at check out to get 20% off your entire Perfect Keto Order.
