A (healthy) dairy-free, keto eggnog latte made with MCT oil that propels the health of your body and brain, boosting your metabolism and providing steady energy all day through. Keto eggnog! Better late than never, right? I’ve been drinking these keto lattes for the last couple of months and realized, on Friday, that I hadn’t shared the keto recipe with you. How rude of me, I know. If you like eggnog, you’re in for a keto treat today. If you detest it, maybe you haven’t tried the right eggnog. Or, if you’re like, “Leanne, ain’t no way I’m going to drink your eggnog”, I get it. Before you go, scroll down past the keto eggnog action to read about eating raw eggs (daily), it’ll be worth your time, I swear. There are lots of recipes on the blog that are eggnog themed, none quite like the other. The thing that was missing in my little eggnog collection was keto eggnog lattes. No one can resist an eggnog latte. Or, at least if that no one loves eggnog.
Did you know MCT oil also comes in powdered form? Ya! In its powdered state, it's much easier to use, travel with, and incorporate into your favorite recipes. Plus, if you've experienced digestive issues with MCT oil before, MCT oil powder is a lot gentler on the gut. Check out my favorite brand of MCT oil powder here.
Omega-3. We learned this week that omega 3 fats are where it’s at.
Cholesterol (that’s a good thing). Congrary to popular belief, dietary cholesterol doesn’t contribute to our cholesterol level. In fact, cholesterol is SO important to our functioning, that every single cell in our bodies has the ability to generate cholesterol.
Vitamin E. It’s a natural antioxidant, allowing our cells and vascular system to thrive. Also great for preventing aging.
Vitamin B. Which is needed for nervous system maintenance. The more stress you have in your life, the more B vitamins you need.
Lecithin. A naturally occurring emulsifying agent that assist the breakdown and assimilation of the keto-friendly fats in the yolk.The nutrient benefits to eggs is broad, vast, epic, even. I could go on forever about the benefit they could do in everyone’s life. But I think you get the picture, yes?
Organic. Adhering to organic standards, the eggs are less likely to be contaminated and will have higher nutrient quality.
Pasture-raised. There are a lot of marketing hot words with eggs. Things like “free-run”, which could mean that they were free to run indoors with billions of other hens or “free range” which may translate to the hens being allowed to roam for a couple of moments a day. In the end, you’re best off with pasture raised eggs.Tip. Visit your local farmers market for a selection of potential pasture-raised keto-friendly eggs. Okay, now for that keto recipe already, yeah?!
