Before we start making it, let us find out more about what Keto is.
What Do You Mean By The Keto Diet?
Keto is popularly known as a diet that is focused on food with a very low carbohydrates content. Some people out there call this kind of diet ketogenetic, low-carb, low-carb high fat, and so on!
Here is an explanation of the Keto term:
When we eat food that is rich in carbohydrates, our body system easily breaks it down into glucose and insulin. Glucose is the body’s priority to use in terms of energy. Insulin helps in the process by taking it all over our system through the bloodstream.
But what if we eat food with a low-carb content?
Here comes ketosis to the rescue! Our body has a natural process that defends us and keep us thriving during times of low food intake. We call it Ketosis.
Ketones are generated from the breakdown of our fats in the liver, and then are used by our body as the primary energy source.
When your glucose is low, your body will start working on stored fats, and burn them.
Now that we are clear on what Keto means, let’s start making our Keto salad dressing and start kicking out the fat!
