Why Plant Based Keto Is The Next Big Thing
The keto diet has been rising in popularity over the past couple of years and it doesn’t look like it will be going anywhere anytime soon. However, there are still a lot of questions around what the keto diet entails with many thinking it is a meat-centric diet. Pulsin are proud that all of their keto products not only taste delicious but are also plant based and high in protein.
Planet Organic want to change the view that keto is just a fatty, meat-centric diet and get people to associate healthier, delicious foods with it. Think leafy green vegetables and plant sources such as avocados as the fat source. Realising this could, in fact, be key to long term success. Planet Organic believes the diet should be just as much about ensuring there is a plentiful supply of dark green, healthy veggies. Kale, cavolo nero, spinach and alike provide essential micronutrients and fibre, providing bulk to the diet which will also have a positive impact on satiety.
With this shift in thinking away from animal products and onto plant based foods, plant fats can play a pivotal role in the keto diet, reducing reliance on dairy fats such as cream or butter and replacing them with more sustainable and ethical sources of fat such as avocado, coconut oil and even cocoa butter. Swapping out commercially reared, grain fed meat such as beef for the other sources mentioned will remove omega 6 fats from the diet which may confer additional benefit on cardiovascular health. Using a combination of coconut, avocado, nuts, seeds and perhaps supplementary coconut derived MCT oil, you can get adequate amounts of fat in the diet to thrive on the keto diet without being reliant on animal sources.
