Having ample fat in your ketogenic diet would be the name of the game! These 3 sauce and dressings recipes increase your fat intake and decrease your carb intake for a perfect macro equilibrium.
Sauces are everything on a keto diet. And, if you haven't experimented with keto-friendly sauce recipes, now's the time!
A low-carb sauce can increase the flavor in an otherwise boring dish, deliver a meal that is insistent back to existence, and also do amazing things for the keto meal planning game without a lot of work.
In addition, it can help you cut down on carbohydrates, by substituting higher carb options with lower-carb ones. As is true with the low carb barbecue sauce I am sharing with you today.
Keto-friendly sauces may also help you boost your fat consumption, something that many keto novices fight as they work to become fat adapted.
What Does Fat Actually Do Your Body?
Understanding what happens when you consume fat is useful in knowing how keto works and why it can be such a nutritious diet for individuals.
Fats transport vitamins and minerals throughout the body and send signals to our glands to make hormones, including hormones that regulate your time, the health of the breast tissues, brain function, and immunity, to name a couple.
Fats are integral for the introduction of every organ, cell, and tissue molecule in the human body.
So, you will see the ketogenic diet can positively influence every part of your system — fat plays a powerful role in only about everything.
Just how Can You Decide on a Keto-Friendly Sauce?
There are so many to choose from, whether store-bought or homemade. If you're trying to cut some time, Primal Kitchen gets amazing low-carb sandwiches but they're a bit pricy.
Therefore, if saving a little money on your keto diet is a priority for you, creating your personal toppings is where it's at!
Today I'm combining 3 of those 20+ sausage recipes in my paperback publication, The Keto Diet Cookbook – These sauce recipes are excellent as dipping sauces, and slathering on forehead, drizzling on a salad, or topping grilled vegetables… and only a fraction of what is in my novel!
