    I found the cheddar too salty so I think in future I will use either Edam or a combination of both.

    Hi. I am a t1d, a celiac and new to keto. I wanted to understand where the 4g carbs are coming from? Is it cheese?
    Your site has been wonderful for me over the last 7-10 days in understanding more about Keto and how it can help keep my blood sugars in control. Could you also please suggest any substitutes for bacon, chicken and beef. These items are either not easily available in India or are really bad/low quality or very very expensive and its better to not have something of poor quality, right. I know its a difficult task but please let me know if you have suggestions.

    Richa, the carbs come from the eggs and the cheese. For the meats, you can substitute in other meat that you can access locally.

    A lot of the breakfast recipes use a lot of eggs do you have to eat the entire meal in 1 sitting. Also, I am allergic to peanuts. What's an alternative to Almond and coconut flour?

    This specific recipe is written to make 2 omelets. Almond and coconut flour bring different properties to different baked goods, there are no universal substitute recommendations.

    If you're allergic to peanuts not tree nuts there is no reason not to use almond flour.

    I halved the recipe and made 1 serve which I cooked in a small pan. I know this is a high fat diet but my omelette was literally swimming in this amount of butter. I used 40 grams. Is this correct?

    You can use 20 - 30 grams if that suits your preferences better.

    Oatmeal is much too high carb to be part of a ketogenic diet.

    I have become astounded (being a big time bread and milk person) at just how much I do not miss it...the first week was hard but I got through it. I have found that the keto breads are good if I find myself really craving bread, but for the most part, I just do not crave carbs like I used to anymore. I have had to go to keeping my keto bread in the freezer and then just taking out a piece when I want it or it spoils in the fridge because I go so long in between eating it....I am so in love with this way of eating!!!
