If you're like me, one of life's greatest pleasures is delicious food from the South. But is there any way to do that and stay healthy?
The Southern culture came into existence when British soldiers stepped into Jamestown, Virginia with a few pigs in the year 1607.
The locals in the area, the Powhatan Indians, took time to share knowledge of the spices they used to cook their food. It was only after a few years that the Powhatan Indians guided the British through the blossoming botanicals. They revealed their secrets about the new flavors hidden in the land.
Over time, people from other countries came to Virginia, and the food prepared in this Southern state soon changed. It became a mixture of domestic and foreign traditions and food. The Southern cuisine is one of the most diverse and traditional styles of cooking that has passed through generations.
It can be extremely delicious, but there is one problem.Most people avoid the Southern diet since it is not considered very heart healthy, with high cholesterol and high carbohydrates.
When you follow the Ketogenic diet, you need to consume meals that are low-carb and high fat. These dishes should, however, include a moderate amount of protein. When you reduce your intake of carbohydrates, your body will need to look for an alternative means to produce energy since the glucose levels in your body will decrease.
The only option your body has is to target the stored fat and the fat in food to produce energy. When your body breaks the fat down into ketones, your body will shift into the metabolic state called Ketosis. When your body begins to burn fat, you lose weight faster. It is for this reason that people lose weight quickly when they follow the Ketogenic diet.
This book looks at some of the recipes that involve low carb substitutes for popular Southern dishes, in addition to those Southern recipes that are already healthy.
