If eating ketogenically is relatively new to you, check out Dave Asprey’s website or Jimmy Moore’s.  Those are two great resources.  In a nutshell, it’s a way of eating that keeps the body in a state of ketosis.  This enables the brain and the body to utilize it’s own fat stores and dietary fat for fuel.  In essence, you become a “Fat Burning Machine” rather than a “Carbohydrate (Sugar) Burning Machine.”  A huge plus for me has been increased energy, greater mental clarity, weight loss, mood booster, and my #1 favorite… I’m not hungry anymore.  Drinking a keto smoothie like this one or a Bulletproof coffee is a great way to jump further into ketosis first thing in the morning or keep you going in the afternoon.

But let’s face it, there are some things I miss and some things a used to miss.  I used to miss ice cream, but not anymore.  Thank you Dave Asprey for your Get Some Ice Cream.  It was a true lifesaver, especially when I first started.  Up until recently, I missed milkshakes… a lot.  So I came up with this healthy omega-3 protein packed ultra low carb smoothie that gets me going in the morning.  (And I can save Dave’s ice cream for a nightly treat. Yeah, baby!)
