Ok back to the point. CHOCOLATE! Along with “eat fat burn fat.” I actually jumped into this LCHF thing before it was even a thing. That was over 11 years ago. Prior to becoming certified in all things holistic nutrition and functional medicine. Getting to the root cause to achieve true weight loss, fat loss, energy, and focus. I was finally able to balance my Macros for my body and metabolism. All day hunger was gone. It was a serious time for celebration. Lol
This recipe is a fantastic, no sugar, low carb, way to keep chocolate in your life. This breakfast even supports a light keto nutrition plan or strict ketogenic lifestyle and gives you an awesome mix of protein, good fat + net carbs. There are a few, though one of the main reasons we get food and sugar cravings throughout the day is because we consume too many carbs in relation to how much protein and fat we are eating. This recipe also calls for some good MCT based fats that our body burns as fuel.
Speaking of fuel, this is my favorite Keto breakfast recipe for my active days! And my clients love these types of recipes. I mean who wouldn’t! Chocolate for breakfast! Great for the kids too! Now, for the recipe… there is also a dairy free Keto + vegan Keto version below!
