What do you feel like eating after a tiring day at work? When you feel low, do you crave for something specific?
Well, you might crave a bowl of mac and cheese, a slice of piping hot pizza, fried chicken, or even a casserole. Whenever you eat such foods, it is almost as if you are giving your body a much-needed comforting, warm, and loving hug. Comfort foods often trigger fond memories and feelings that bring about joy and comfort, as the name suggests. So, it is no wonder that we crave such foods, especially when we feel low or blue. These foods are usually salty or sweet and are seldom sour or bitter. Most of the comfort foods are associated with simple and rustic home cooking and childhood memories. Comfort foods are not about fancy and elaborate meals, but about soulful cooking that stirs some positivity.
The ketogenic or keto diet is a high-fat and low carb diet. One of the major principles of this diet is to ensure that about 70 to 75% of your daily calorie intake comes from healthy dietary fats, about 20% from proteins, and the rest from carbs. If you take a moment and think about all your comfort foods, you will realize they are high in sugars and carbs. The keto diet is not extremely restrictive, but it does place certain limits on carbs and sugar intake. After all, carbs are the major culprit.
While on the ketogenic diet, you might probably think you cannot eat comfort foods ever again because that’s rich in carbs. Well, this is where you are mistaken. The ketogenic diet might sound superficially restrictive, but it isn’t. It is all about creativity and experimentation. Every single ingredient that’s rich in carbs can be efficiently replaced with other keto-friendly ingredients. For instance, replace regular processed flour with nut or seed flour. Since it is a high-fat diet, naturally fatty foods such as full-fat dairy, cheese, fatty fish and meats, nuts, and seeds are all a part of it. This diet is restrictive only if you think it is restrictive. All you need to do is get creative. Well, this is where this book steps into the picture. You no longer have to search for keto-friendly alternatives to regular carb and sugar-rich foods.
