I am not here to sell you on the benefits of a keto diet. I personally following a loose keto diet in the sense that I reduce the amount of carbs that I eat. Now, I have not seen extreme weight loss on my diet, but I have lost several pounds slow and steady.
When I say several pounds, I am down 10 pounds since November. As I am writing this, we are just now heading into February. To me, that is really great. I feel it is so great because I am not very strict, but I work hard to make low carb keto choices when I cook or go out to eat.
One of the biggest struggles for me with any diet is that I am a huge sweets fan. I love to sit down after the kids have done to bed (mainly because I do not like to share) and treat myself to some tasty little treats. This has led to the push in our bakery to work on keto products.
My mom is a diabetic. Her pancreas no longer produces insulin. Her diabetic doctor has discussed with her several times the importance of her diet. As our baker, she actually cannot test most of the products in our bakery.
My mom has had several conversations with her doctor about low sugar, low carb bakery products. They have discussed the need for these products on the market. Since we have the need and the ability, we have decided to help tackle the lack of keto bakery products in the St. Louis and Southeast Missouri region.
As we have been working on products for our menu, we have been working on recipes to share with you all. Keto products can be expensive. This especially true when you are buying the products to make sweets to eat.
We thought we would start by sharing a simple yet delicious recipe that will help curb any sweet tooth. We are going to tell you how easy it is to make keto friendly, diabetic friendly, gluten friendly American Buttercream.
Who doesn't like sitting around eating spoon fulls of icing? It is even better when you know that you can eat it with 0 net carbs. So stop scrolling on the internet and start making yourself a tasty little treat.
