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. 

Yogurt Snack



Katie loves yogurt and we've struggled with Dannon yogurt as it has too many artificial flavorings in it.  We found FAGE natural greek yogurt and she loves it!  Just make sure you buy the "FAGE total" as it has much more fat content in it.  This is a 100 calorie yogurt snack, at 3:1 ratio:

25.3 grams of FAGE Total Yogurt
18 grams of heavy whipping cream (40%)
7 drops of Sweet N' Low

Kara, we have just discovered the FAGE yogurt through the keto/doose group (I'm sure you're the one who mentioned it) and Sam LOVES it! He has it with every meal and I add some canola oil with the cream and a little bit of coconut oil as well, since we are 4:1. He calls the coconut oil pieces his 'chocolate chips'. It makes me so happy to have found something he totally loves!

Yay! Another keto blog! I'm going to add you to my list of resources on the "Epilepsy Resources" page of my blog.

Let me know if you come up with any egg / beef / dairy free recipes. :P We "like" to keep things complicated at our place!
