Ryan Is On Keto! Helpful Keto Books Needed.

Ryan is on Keto now, we absolutely started to change our diet a lot, which is so trendy and also healthier. Some books about Keto are very helpful because it is a new diet for him, and I have never done that before. As a blogger, I know about Bobby Parrish for a long time – I watch his videos at YouTube a lot to learn about the healthy snacks, produced foods and even which oil is good and which is bad. I love watching his videos and I also want to check out his book.
Keto Meal Prep by FlavCity
125+ Low Carb Recipes That Actually Taste Good
Keto and meal prep are both trending very strong now, and FlavCity is positioned as a food authority in this space. Good content always wins out, and the authors’ keto meal prep content is top class and presented in a personal way that ensures the casual consumer will choose the book over others.
FlavCity is about Bobby and Dessi, two passionate home cooks who just want to hook you up with tasty, healthy recipes. Keto Meal Prep by FlavCity will have a total of 75 recipes, but one can argue that since many of the meal prep recipes contain 1-2 recipes each, it’s really so many more. Keto Meal Prep by FlavCity will be organized by breakfast, lunch, and dinner but also by the various proteins featured. Each recipe will have headnotes and 1-2 photos. The book will also have a dietary restriction chart that will easily identify each recipe as GF, DF, Paleo, etc.
About Bobby Parrish:

Bobby Parrish is a passionate home cook who went to the best culinary school around: his mom’s kitchen. He wanted to be on the Food Network badly, and, when they rejected his application for the next Food Network star, he decided to start a YouTube channel. Four years and hundreds of thousands of fans later, it seems the Food Network made a mistake! Bobby and his wife Dessi started filming online cooking videos for the sole purpose of proving that healthy food can taste good and that home cooks can be rock stars in the kitchen. Little did they know that only a few years later, Bobby would quit his job in finance, Dessi would quit her job in corporate America, and they would turn their two-bedroom Chicago condo into a production studio involving all things food.

Here are some Keto meals we cooked at home, they are very yummy. But as a dessert lover, I can’t live without sweets. The good thing is this cookbook also introduces a lot of Keto Desserts recipes!

Apple Coffee Cake (Paleo, GF, DF)
Gooey Coffee Cake Recipe w/ Caramel Sauce – Gluten Free & Paleo Cake Recipe

This apple coffee cake is luscious and rich, spiced with cinnamon and cloves and topped with toasted walnuts and a vegan coconut caramel sauce! It’s paleo, gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free.



  • 3 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla paste or extract
  • 3/4 cup virgin coconut oil melted
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • ½ cup arrowroot starch or tapioca starch
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda + 2 teaspoons cream of tartar or 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup peeled and grated applesabout 2 medium sized apples (Honey Crisp, Gala or Fuji)
  • 3/4 cup toasted walnuts chopped


  • 1 can (13.5 oz) full fat coconut milk
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.

  2. Using a hand mixer beat the eggs and egg whites on high along with the coconut sugar and vanilla until fluffy and the sugar is completely dissolved.
  3. Add the melted coconut oil and beat just to incorporate.
  4. In a separate bowl mix in the almond flour and arrowroot starch along with the ground cinnamon, ground cloves, grated nutmeg, baking soda and cream of tartar (or baking powder), and salt. If you want to keep it strictly paleo use baking soda and cream of tartar, because baking powder typically has cornstarch in it.

  5. Pour the egg mixture on top of the flour mixture and beat on medium for 30 seconds to incorporate.
  6. Peel and grate the apples and squeeze out all of the excess moisture. Measure one cup of the grated and squeezed apples and add it to the batter.

  7. Mix well and pour into a 9-inch round springform baking pan lined on the bottom with parchment paper. An 8×10 inch baking pan also works for this purpose.
  8. Top off with the toasted and chopped walnuts.
  9. Bake in 375F oven for 38-40 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. The edges of the cake should be deep brown in color.

  10. For the caramel sauce, place the coconut milk, coconut sugar and a couple of pinches of salt in a small pot and bring to boil.

  11. Turn the heat down to low and simmer on low for about 40-50 minutes while stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. The sauce will reduce and turn deep caramel color. It’s done when it coats the back of the spoon. Keep in mind that it will thicken a little more once it cools down.

  12. Remove from the heat, stir in the vanilla paste or extract and set aside to cool. Makes about 8oz of caramel sauce. Once both cake and sauce have cooled down, drizzle the caramel sauce all over the cake and serve!

Tips for Parents to Get Their Kids to Eat More Plant-based Foods

Plant-based eating not only provides health benefits, it’s good for the environment too. Having a diet rich in plant-based sources is becoming increasingly common, especially with kids and younger generations driving the conversation around sustainability.

Relying on plant-based foods as a primary food source can have a massive effect, and if we all choose plant-based options even a few times a week, we can change the world. The greatest journey starts with the smallest step.

Showcasing the surge in plant-based eating, all products from Huel, the world’s best-selling complete nutrition brand, with a variety of powders and Ready-to-drink beverages, are plant-based. Co-Founder and Head of Nutrition at Huel, James Collier has put together a list of the Top Five Ways Parents Can Get Kids to Eat More Plant-based Foods.

Eat the rainbow
As different color foods usually contain different levels of nutrients, it’s important to eat a variety. For example, the phytonutrient, lycopene which is an antioxidant that protects against cell damage and gives tomatoes its red color. While carotenoids, another group of antioxidants, give fruits and vegetables orange and yellow colors, such as carrots.

Get enough Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12, which plays a vital role in helping the body produce red blood cells can usually be perceived as tricky to get enough of with a plant-based diet. The good news is, it’s really not. As a start, try incorporating plant-based milks that are that are fortified with B12, and calcium and vitamin D. Cereals, meat alternatives and some soy products are often fortified with B12 too. Taking a B12 supplement also rids any concerns.

Ensure adequate omega-3 consumption
If oily fish is not part of your eating plan, then foods such as walnuts, soy and flaxseed are ways to ensure adequate omega 3 consumption. Omega-3 fats are generally low in a Western diet and adequate omega-3 consumption is important to support cardiovascular health.

Keep your iron up
Iron is not just found in meat food sources. Dark leafy greens, nuts and dried fruits are great sources of iron. Iron is crucial for oxygen transport, cognitive function and the immune system. Iron from plant sources can be harder to absorb, but again, there’s no need to worry. Iron absorption can also be increased by the presence of vitamin C which is found in lots of fruits and vegetables such as oranges and peppers. It’s where the idea of having orange juice with breakfast comes from – to increase the iron that is added to cereals.

Make small changes over time and change your mindet
Start by eating one plant-based meal a day. This will be easier to stick with rather than making large, unsustainable changes overnight.

Instead of thinking, “I can’t eat meat,” think about all the wonderful things you can eat and how beneficial these are for your health (and the planet). Stop focusing on meat as the hero on your plate and rather, build your plate with new and nutritious food choices.
