CHO-KETO Cupcakes are here! 1 GRAM OF CARB IN THE WHOLE CUPCAKE!
One of my favorite things in the world is chocolate so I reflect that taste in my cupcakery in San Antonio. My parents got on a KETO diet for weight loss, and that prompted me to do some research about it and find out what are the benefits of KETO or KETOGENIC diet, and how can I use it in my cupcakes to bring a healthier option for my clients in San Antonio using organic ingredients.
Let’s talk about what it’s a keto diet and how it is useful and here’s what I found:
The “keto” diet is any extremely low – or no carbohydrate diet that forces the body into a state of ketosis.
Ketosis occurs when people eat a low- or no-carb diet and molecules called ketones to build up in their bloodstream. Low carbohydrate levels cause blood sugar levels to drop and the body begins breaking down fat to use as energy. Guess what, it results in less fat stored in your body and you lose the body fat.
The keto diet was created by Dr. Gianfranco Cappello, an associate professor of surgery at the Sapienza University in Rome, Italy.
So I decided to research and figure out what I need to use for our KETO cupcake and came up with CHOKETO that only has one gram of carb in the whole cupcake!!
Also, I personally believe that once you have reached your ideal weight, then we should all go to a more balanced diet as our body needs all the nutrients for a healthy life!
Our goal is to provide healthier desserts (cupcakes and tea) and support kids charities in San Antonio. 50% of all profits go to kids charities.
