When there is a time of great challenge, often people set aside their Keto lifestyle.
They revert to old patterns and old foods. Then they may be disappointed with themselves weeks later.
This article is to help you succeed at Keto right now. If you are confined to your home like so many folks are, this is what you need to succeed.
The Most Important Food to Eat Right Now
Whether you buy it or make it, chicken broth has been known as “liquid penicillin” for years.
It is high in minerals and electrolytes. Have the broth alone or add vegetables and the chicken meat if you want to make it a complete meal. Add spices, hot sauce or whatever you need to meet your family’s palate.
Staying Keto is Actually Very Easy
The cornerstone of Staying Completely Keto is fresh, whole food. Be prepared to substitute if something isn’t available. If you had your heart set on beef for dinner and you can only get chicken, then make the switch.
You can switch from animal or fish protein from one to another freely. If you wanted a certain vegetable like broccoli and only string beans are available, make the switch.
Be flexible to plan based on what your store has fresh. Frozen vegetables are a better choice than canned because of the enzymes in the food.
Still canned vegetables are okay in a pinch.

Prepare Healthy Meals for Your Family.
Keto and meal prepping are a match made in heaven. If you’ve never meal prepped before, this is the perfect time to start.
Staying on track is important to your success when eating keto. Having a go to meal ready will save you from going over on carbs.
Take a day and have a goal of cooking 2-3 keto meals. Calculate your macros and portion each meal out to one serving size. If you are using the baggie system, write what the meal is on the bag before freezing. Before reheating place the bags in a warm bowl of water.
It will easily slide out onto a bowl or plate in 5 minutes time. Then microwave the frozen meal.
Ways to Stay Healthy in Challenging Times
The most important, helpful contribution we can make is to simply stay home. Practicing social distancing accomplishes that.
Remember, though you may feel well, staying indoors keeps others safe. Those with weakened immune systems are most at risk.
