Sugar Free at it's best


Ingredients

    Shortbread Crust
  • 2-1/2 cups Almond Flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered Swerve
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 large egg (whisked)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Lemon Filling
  • 1/3 cup powdered Swerve (or Monk Fruit)
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 3/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9×9 pan with parchment paper, hanging over the sides.
  2. Make the filling first, because it must be ready to go immediately when the crust comes out of the oven. In a medium bowl, stir together almond flour and powdered sweetener.
  3. Whisk in the eggs, lemon juice and lemon zest, until smooth. Set aside.
  4. To make the crust, combine the almond flour, sweetener and sea salt in a large bowl.
  5. Stir in the melted coconut oil, then the egg and vanilla. The dough will be crumbly, but able to be pressed together.
  6. Press the dough into the lined pan. Bake for about 13 to 16 minutes, until firm and golden.
  7. Remove the crust from the oven, and immediately pour the filling over the crust.
  8. Return to the oven for 15 to 18 minutes, until filling is set, but still soft.
  9. Cool completely on the counter, without moving or cutting. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before slicing.

  4. Dip into egg mixture again.
  5. Coat rings in pork rinds again.
  6. Place in air fryer at 380F for 5-7 minutes.

Keto Reboot

What is a Keto Reboot? Do you leave your computer running and just close the lid like I do? Once in a while you need to reboot it – this allows the computer to add any updated information, get rid of all the old stuff running in the background and download any new upgrades to the system.

A Keto Reboot is much the same thing. Your system needs a way to clear out all the old cellular waste and damaged cells. Once you have done this your metabolism increases, your energy amps up and your overall health is rejuvenated. Dr. Andi Campetelli talks about intermittent fasting and rebooting your system in this YouTube video. She talks about teaching our bodies to use ketones as a primary fuel source instead of glucose.

I can tell you that having done a 60 hour fast using the Pruvit keto Reboot system produces amazing results. Your energy level goes through the roof when you have eliminated all of the glucose from the body (kind of like the runners high without the running). The mental clarity is amazing. Each person will have a different experience and mindset is everything. We have so programmed ourselves with food that we go from one function to the other only thinking about our next meal. If you were to sit down and journal your thoughts just for one full day – you would be amazed at how many times you think about food. And most of those times it is out of habit, not because you’re really hungry.

Each month our Keto community does a Reboot. It is a structured 60 hour fast with a kit that includes exogenous ketones, better//broth bone broth, signal//os in both pm and am formulas and mito//plex electrolytes. Everything you need to get your body running on ketones. If you want to hear what Dr Ryan Lowery has to say about the Keto Reboot, just hit his name and it will take you to a video of him discussing how it works and what it will do for you.

If you are interested in trying the keto reboot, hit the highlighted reboot above and we can connect. Have a wonderful and fabulous week and see you next week.
