*“*We are interested in feeding you healthful meals! Different people have different diets. One size doesn’t fit all. We try to accommodate some of the most common diets including paleo, gluten free, vegetarian, and now keto. Some of our meals are comfort food while other items are made for a specific diet. But for all our meals we strive to use fresh ingredients, high quality (no hormone) meats and wild seafood.!”
The keto diet is an eating plan that consists of up to 80 percent fat and little to no carbohydrates. Staples of the keto diet are fish, meat, eggs, dairy, oils, and green vegetables. Pasta, rice and other grains, potatoes, and fruits are strictly prohibited. A keto diet is well known for being a low carb diet, where the body produces ketones in the liver to be used as energy. It’s referred to as many different names – ketogenic diet, low carb diet, low carb high fat (LCHF), etc.
Keto works by changing the way the body turns food into energy. Typically, during digestion, we break down carbohydrates — like those found in the verboten foods above — into molecules of fructose, galactose, and glucose, the last of which serves as the body’s primary source of energy. When the body can’t draw it from carbohydrates — either because they’ve been cut out of the diet or because a person hasn’t eaten for a long time — it looks for other forms of energy. The keto diet deliberately places the body in a state of ketosis, where fat is released from cells and turned into ketones, the body’s plan B for energy production.
