It’s a keto chocolate flaxseed cake and it’s the perfect way to add more fiber and nutrition while doing a low carb keto diet.
Personally, I’m always looking for a delicious way to up my fiber content while doing keto. Because frankly, it can be a bit of challenge to do so.
My solution was to create a keto chocolate cake that had a hefty serving of flax meal. Flaxmeal on its own isn’t the most appetizing food to embrace but when it’s coupled with chocolate, well it’s a whole nother thing.
If you are looking for a way to add more Omega-3 to your keto diet, my low chocolate flaxseed cake may just be the solution you’ve been looking for. Why not sneak more of this essential fatty acid and do so in a keto-friendly cake?
Flaxseed meal is my go-to way to easily add more Omega-3 to my diet. Omega-3’s is considered to be a healthy fat that’s been shown to have heart-healthy effects. And for that reason alone, this girl is always looking to add more of it into her diet.
Flax meal also has lignans, a plant estrogen high in antioxidants. Another benefit is that it’s high in both soluble and insoluble fiber. Again, adding more fiber into your keto diet just makes sense.
Recent studies suggest that flaxseed might be able to protect us against breast, prostate, and colon cancers. It appears that the plant omega-3 fatty acid found in flaxseed, called ALA, can inhibit tumor incidence and growth.
Lignans may help protect against cancer by blocking enzymes that are involved in hormone metabolism, by interfering with the growth and spread of tumor cells.
Can you think of a more delicious way to ward of cancer than by having it in a keto chocolate flax cake? It sounds to me, that we can all benefit from a little more flaxseed in our diet.
What better way than our low carb chocolate flaxseed cake? I like using flaxseed meal as a good low carb flour substitute from time to time.
Not only is flaxseed good for us but it’s an inexpensive low carb flour option.
Favorite Keto Hack
If you have been struggling to get into ketosis and it has been a challenge to stay on a low carb keto diet. Can I introduce you to the use of exogenous ketone?
Do you know that you can now drink ketones and enter into ketosis?
Using exogenous ketone supplementation can place you in a state of ketosis.
You can actually test your ketones in less than an hour after drinking and see your ketone levels rise.
Why is this powerful? Elevated ketones mean you will see a major reduction in appetite, carb cravings, and sustained energy. This makes the low carb keto lifestyle a viable sustainable option.
