keto for fitness fanatics.
With Hong Kong's gyms re-opening, perhaps the fitness fanatic inside you has now come to the brutal realisation that you have lacked behind on your strict diet (because 'you are what you eat,' right?) as adapting to the COVID ‘new normal’ seems to have taken over our lives.
And even if you’re not a frequent gym goer, we still have some good news for you.
We've noticed a trend in ketogenic diet — the low-carb, high-fat eating habit that essentially reduces your carbohydrate intake and replaces it with fat. What this means, especially for those with high carbohydrate sensitivities, is reduced chances of feeling tired after lunch time and developing Type II diabetes!
So, we’ve prepared a list of our expert-approved goodness that you don't want to miss to include in your Keto meals!
1. Lewis Road Butter
First and foremost, this grass-fed butter can be the perfect ingredient for your bulletproof coffee — helping you avoid that dreaded blood sugar crash.
Alternatively, you can also let it melt and turn it into part of a delicious sauce. This Champions of Cheese Awards 2019 winner is ideal for cooking with — giving your dish additional flavour without altering the salt content.
2. Brinks Free Range Chicken
There is nothing that spells sustainable eating like Brinks Free-Range Chicken does - it's also 100% hormone free. Mix it up with some olive oil and feta cheese for lunch, or stuff it with pesto and some vegetables for dinner!
3. Big Glory Bay King Salmon Fillets
Seafood can (and should be) a big part of your keto diet! Tasty and 100% traceable, you can rest assured that your salmon coming from the southern-most part of New Zealand will also give you a taste of satisfaction through its melt-in-mouth texture. The cold waters in New Zealand's southern parts mean that the salmon grow slowly, developing a rich flavour and velvety texture. Don’t forget to complement it with some broccoli and cheese for your signature dish!
4. Talleys Cooked Marinated Greenshell Mussels
While garlic is a 'love it or hate it’ kind of ingredient, there is no denying that the garlicky taste makes for a great addition to your mussels with the additional wine sauce. Now, if you are not the biggest fan of garlic, feel free to try cooking up your mussels with a good mix of eggs, spinach, and avocado too!
5. Franks Free Range Sausages
Going Keto and missing out on snags!? No more! Not only are Franks Sausages Free-Range, made with natural ingredients, gluten-free, dairy-free, preservative-free, nitrate-free, colour-free but keto-friendly too!
