I am new here and have been eating keto for the past two weeks. I took to it like a duck to water and have little to zero problems adjusting. Perhaps I am being a little neurotic here but this question has been with me since I started.
I work as a cook in a day care cooking for about 25 young children, ages 1.5-5 years. So as part of my job I do find that I occasionally will have to take a slight taste of some things that I cook, and I am certainly not cooking the same way for the kids as I now do for myself.
Thus today I had to taste a very small portion of a cheese sauce containing flour, milk and of course cheese. I guess what I am wondering is will these small tastes (probably about a quarter of a teaspoon) of non keto food have any effect on my system?
As I mentioned I am adjusting well and have no desire or craving towards carb filled foods so the small test tastes do nothing to tempt me away from keto, am just worrying a bit (probably a neurotically) that these small tastes will mess up my system. It is really just things like soups and sauces I feel the need to taste for salt & spicing. Foods such as pasta I can gauge with timing and crushing a cooked piece between my thumb and finger.
Any thoughts on this?
