Hi, first post!
I’m craving something warm at night but not food.
I read a post on here about the stock cube and a splash of double cream. Is that acceptable ok Keto?
Hi, first post!
I drink jasmine tea. This is white tea and I get quite an expensive one because the others don’t taste so good to me. I add a squirt of lemon juice and some erythritol.
You can reuse the tea: I get loose tea and put it in an empty teabag. You can buy those separately.
The tea tastes different with each reuse and aficionados say the taste improves; though tbh I prefer the first one as the jasmine tastes stronger. For the first one often I don’t add lemon or erythritol but with later brews I add according to taste, which varies.
I just love this though a year or so ago I just wouldn’t have believed this possible.
Hello and welcome Kate.
A stock cube (bullion?) and a splash of cream is just fine for keto. I like a warm mug of bone broth from time to time since there’s plenty of good things that come with drinking it. I like to add a bit of salt to mine to help ensure I get enough daily sodium, which can often be lacking in a ketogenic diet.
Here’s an interesting article about the 18 amazing benefits of bone broth:
As long as it works for you, do it! Just watch the carb count on those cubes. I don’t think I’ve ever looked at the Knorr label, but some of those other brands—whew! But the warmth, the salt, and the double cream all sound great to me!
P.S.—Making your own bone broth is dead easy, BTW.
Yes, heavy whipping or double cream is keto, no problems there.You could also make a ‘Faux Bone Broth’ by using powdered chicken or beef bouillon. Obviously fresh bone broth is better, but if you do not have any you can use this recipe to make a ‘Faux Bone Broth’. Yes, I know, most commercial bouillons have MSG and many people stay away from them for this reason. If however you are doing a ‘fat fast’ or you just feel like you need something high in fat to increase your satiety without grabbing something with carbs in it, this recipe can be a “snack savior”.
8 ounces hot water
1 teaspoon bouillon powder or 1 cube

You could of course use MCT oil if you did not have coconut oil handy, but we keep a one gallon container of coconut oil in or pantry. So in an emergency I make this recipe. Stay ‘Keto Strong’ my friends…
I would avoid the chicken stock cubes and get a good quality bone broth instead (or make your own) This is the ingredient list for the stock cubes:
SALT, MODIFIED PALM OIL, MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE, HYDROLYZED CORN PROTEIN, CORN STARCH, WATER, SUGAR,ONION & GARLIC POWDER, CHICKEN FAT, SPICES, COLOUR, FLAVOUR, DEHYDRATED PARSLEY, DISODIUM INOSINATE, CITRIC ACID,YEAST EXTRACT.
Definitely has some ingredients you want to avoid.
