KETO DIET COMFORT FOODS
Comfort food and ketogenic diet might sound weird together. It is indisputably a challenge, to find recipes that can help you produce your comfort food, while you are on keto.
However, it might be difficult but it is not impossible to achieve. You can easily swap some ingredients and create some of your favorite comfort food, within no time. Mac and cheese or pancakes; it is all possible.
The basic aim of ketogenic diet is restriction of carbs. You have to limit both complex and refined carbs to just 5-10%, in your daily caloric intake allowance. The remaining calories are consumed through fat and protein. You are allowed to adjust 60-80% healthy fat in your diet and the remaining caloric amount is fulfilled through protein intake. Foods that have macronutrients in them, can only be taken in moderation. Many people take keto diet supplements as well. You can always consult a dietitian if you want to add keto diet pills to your routine.
Although keto does restrict you; there are still plenty of foods that you can eat and fulfill your cravings. You are allowed to eat starch free vegetables, some nuts and seeds, grass fed beef, some fruits, diary and dark meat chicken. These might sound boring and super limited, you can always combine them together efficiently, to kill those cravings and make some comfort food for yourself.
COMFORT FOOD; KETOGENIC STYLE
If you are not sure about how to follow the keto diet and you are confused; you can always opt for a registered, reputable dietitian. He/she will help you understand what you can eat and what you need to avoid. They also tend to be extremely helpful in demonstrating what foods you can combine together to keep the caloric intake keto friendly and manage making your comfort food too.

So what will you need to make these pancakes?
Combine all the ingredients together in a bowl, until a smooth batter is formed. If the consistency is too thick, add a little milk. Make sure that you don’t add in a lot of milk, because you don’t want your pancakes to be wet.
Take a pan and brush a little drop of oil on it. Pour the batter on it and form a circle, just like you do with pancakes regularly. Cover the pan and let it cook for around 1-2 minutes. Once bubbles appear on it, flip the pancake over and cook for another 1-2 minute. And you pancake is ready. Repeat the same procedure with the remaining batter too.

Pasta is almost everyone’s favorite but while you are on keto, you might not be able to enjoy a lot of it because you have to limit the carbs. But what if we tell you that you can have a bit of it, now and then, to comfort your taste buds? All you need is eggs and mozzarella cheese and you have your amazing pasta ready. However, it is a bit time taking!

The name suggests the idea itself. You will be swapping potatoes with cauliflower in this recipe. It will keep the carb low but give you a very comforting and delicious taste. Here is how you can make this dish quickly.
Take a large bowl and put the cauliflower florets in it, with a little water. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Make sure that the wrap is not touching the cauliflower. Microwave it for 10 minutes. You can break it into 5 minutes, twice too. Make sure that the cauliflower is very soft. And stir it in between by pausing the microwave. Once done, drain well.
Sauté the garlic a bit and then mix it with melted butter and coconut milk, in a food processor. You can add the garlic directly too but if you sauté it a bit, its taste will become smooth.
Squeeze out all the water from the cauliflower (as much as you can) and then add it to the food processor. Now let it combine with the milk and butter sauce perfectly. Stop in between to scrape down the sides. Sprinkle salt and pepper and purée it. If you want it to be thick, you can take it out if it’s done. However, if you want it to be a bit thin, then you can add a little more coconut milk to it. Although, mashed cauliflower must have the texture similar to mashed potatoes.
Once done, mix in chopped chives and you are good to go! Enjoy mashed cauliflower potatoes.
