Ketosis also lowers LDL cholesterol, promotes cardiovascular health and treats diseases such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, Alzheimer’s and various cancers. You’ll explore new, healthy sources of fat such as organic grass-fed butter, almond oil, flax, olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil and MCT oil.

This infographic of the keto food pyramid shows the importance of each low carb food in a simple way. If in doubt, choose the safest low carb items using our complete list of over 200 ketosis foods.
Special test strips called keto sticks (or ketostix, keto strips) are used to detect ketones in the urine, a sure sign of ketosis.
Keto sticks are a good detector of ketosis, but if the strip doesn’t register the presence of ketones, you can still be ketosis. Fat-adapted low carbers may not register ketones after being in ketosis for long periods of time. Fat-adapted low carbers use ketones more efficiently and levels may not be detectable in the urine, even though they are in ketosis.

To the remaining almond flour mixture, add the baking powder, baking soda, sour cream, heavy cream, vanilla and whole egg.
In the same mixing bowl, whisk the cream cheese, 2 tablespoons granular Splenda or equivalent liquid, almond extract and the egg white until smooth. Bake at 350? 30 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown and the top springs back when lightly touched. Jody said she gets four large servings out of this but I thought I'd save a few carbs and serve smaller pieces.
UPDATE: I did make this for Thanksgiving and used 16 ounces of cream cheese instead of 8 ounces. Coconut oil gives food a nice “buttery” (not coconut) flavor, and is one of the healthiest choices for cooking and baking. MCT converts into energy faster than other oils, ignites your body’s metabolic rate and helps maintain healthy levels of cholesterol. Add to salads, smoothies or your latest Bulletproof coffee fasting plan for immediate, all-day energy.
I found that using my fingers was the most effective for doing this after I'd used the pastry blender to get started.
Meanwhile, saute the mushrooms and pepper rings in butter or oil until slightly tender, but not mushy; set aside.
For each cake, scoop a slightly rounded measuring tablespoon of the potato mixture onto skillet or griddle.
Pour the cream cheese mixture all over the cake batter, trying to distribute it as evenly as possible. I omitted the heavy cream in the cake batter because the cake was a little too soft and didn't support the filling well. Distribute the jam in small dollops all over the top of the cream cheese filling and batter.
Spread the sauce over the chicken, then top with the pepperoni, the pepper rings, mushrooms and then finally, the cheese. Spread the pizza sauce over the top of the chicken then top with the pepperoni, raw mushrooms and green pepper rings.
I used 4 ounces of cream cheese in the filling because I would have had an ounce left if I hadn't done that and I'd used the other 4 ounces to make a pizza crust. Bake at 350? about 40 minutes or until the center feels firm and a knife inserted in the center comes out relatively clean.
I will probably make this again for Thanksgiving instead of a pumpkin pie although this tastes pretty much like pumpkin pie. Although I might add a little more sweetener to the original recipe, I think the ratio of pumpkin to cream cheese is right on the mark with 8 ounces. With the additional cream cheese, I got at least 9 servings out of it and had to bake it in a larger pan to prevent overflow.
Using a wide spatula, carefully turn potato cakes (be sure not to turn cakes too soon or they will not hold together). Bake another 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the chicken is done to your liking. The carb counts are approximate because different brands of sugar free jam have different counts. I also didn't bother to list different counts for liquid vs granular Splenda because the granular only adds 3 carbs to the whole cake and you do need to use granular in the batter anyway.
