Our daughter Katie started the Ketogenic diet on July 8, 2008. She was 3 1/2 years old, had failed four medicines and was still having uncontrolled seizures. When the doctors recommended the diet we didn't hesitate; we were scared to try it but even more scared not to try it.
We had read the books, the blogs, and seen the movie, but we wished we had seen what it was really like to prepare a keto meal. Finding good meals that your child likes is KEY to success on this diet. We want to help other families and decided to post some videos to help people gain better insight into what Ketogenic meal prep is really like. It is 100% worth the effort.
Let us know if you have questions, thoughts or recipes!
Please note: All recipes are based on our daughter's ratio and calorie allotment. Please check with your dietitian if you have questions about ingredients or need help creating this meal per your child's diet and ratio.
We have been using the Ketocal pancake recipe and calculating the already made pancakes into snack portions (Katie gets 100 calorie snacks). We usually make the pancakes in bulk at the start of the week so we can have about a dozen in the fridge that we can microwave for meals or snacks during the week. This snack was created because Katie wanted a chocolate bunny rabbit for Easter. We made the frosting out of heavy whipping cream and a little bit of sugar free chocolate jello. You can see her excitement in the video.
