My husband has a serious sweet tooth and I have spent the last few weeks trying to add more sweet breakfasts to our menu. I usually opt for meats, eggs, and quick breakfast options because it makes my life a little easier. If it was up to me I would cook lunch and dinner at noon and we’d be set for the day but I love my husband so if he wants hot fresh meals then that’s what he’ll get!
The thing about keto sweets is that they aren’t nearly as sweet and do not have the same taste that regular foods do. That’s why I hesitated to make these meals when he first started because it takes some time for your taste buds to get acclimated to less sugar. The wonderful thing about keto is that after a few weeks you have your old taste buds back. The ones you were born with that accurately taste sweet foods like strawberries. If you just started the ketogenic diet you will soon notice that foods that used to seem tasteless are now bursting with flavor in a way you’ve never experienced.
If you cheat while on the keto diet you will notice how over sweetened everything you used to eat is. A taste of sweet tea will make you cringe, and that’s a good thing!
