Cada vez las personas son más conscientes del daño que el azúcar supone para nuestra salud, así que están apareciendo todo tipo de productos sin azúcar para atraer a aquellos que se preocupan por su línea y por su corazón. Sin embargo, muchos de estos productos van con "trampa", y al leer la etiqueta nos llevaremos desagradables sorpresas, puesto que las sustancias que ocupan el puesto del azúcar son igual de malas o incluso peores que el azúcar en sí. Como diría Shakespeare: Un azúcar, llamado con cualquier otro nombre, todavía será azúcar. He recopilado los diferentes nombres de azúcar que podemos encontrar en el etiquetado, para que os sirva como guía la próxima vez que os quieran engañar en el supermercado. Como idea general, recordad que si lleva la palabra "jarabe", "sirope" o si acaba en -osa, es mejor evitarlo. ¡Espero que os sea útil! Algunos merecen una mención especial: * Azúcar de coco, jarabe de arce y miel: aunque sean naturales y "paleo", siguen siendo azúcar. :( * Jarabe/Sirope de maíz: especialmente peligroso si es rico en fructosa. * Dextrina, Dextrosa, Maltodextrina: Cuidado con estos, suelen ir junto a edulcorantes como la estevia. * Fructosa: aunque naturalmente presente en la fruta, su empleo en grandes cantidades induce hígado graso. * Sirope de agave: ¡Huye de él como de la peste! Vendido como "alternativa saludable", en realidad es fructosa concentrada, y esta fructosa es la responsable del hígado graso.

If you are using our Recipe Recommender, you might wonder about the recipes for the side dishes: **Flax roti**: use one serving of my [Flax Roti](http://maria.recipes/flaxRoti). **Coconut roti**: use one serving of my [Coconut Roti](http://maria.recipes/coconutRoti). **Cauli-Rice**: use one cup of [Cauliflower Rice](http://maria.recipes/cauliflowerRice) cooked with 1 tbsp oil. **Simple salad**: use one serving of my [Simple Salad](http://maria.recipes/simpleSalad). **Chocolate**: you can use one square (10g) of 85% chocolate or one square of dark unsweetened chocolate or, better yet, use one serving of my [Keto chocolate](http://maria.recipes/ketoChocolate).

Macro tracking can lead to people obsessing about weights and measurements of food and can be quite exhausting. I personally prefer to just eyeball the measurements and macros, as otherwise it can be stressful to always keep track. That is why I put together this small visual guide to estimate the carb count in different vegetables, so you can look at your plate and know if you are on the right track without having to weigh all your food. I will try to update it with new vegetables every now and then, and I am open to suggestions. I hope you find it helpful!

Hay mucha información ahí fuera sobre la dieta cetogénica; tanta que puede en ocasiones ser demasiado, porque no hay manera de saber por dónde empezar. Por eso he hecho este pequeño video con las bases para iniciar una Dieta Cetogénica. Si quieres más información al respecto, puedes echar un vistazo a mis otros posts sobre [cómo calcular tus macronutrientes](http://maria.recipes/macronutrientes), sobre los [tipos de grasas](http://maria.recipes/grasas) o sobre por qué [contar calorías no funciona](http://maria.recipes/calorias).

En las dietas bajas en hidratos de carbono, como la Dieta Cetogénica, la sal y los electrolitos toman un papel muy importante para mantener nuestro bienestar. Para saber más sobre el papel de la insulina en nuestro cuerpo, echa un vistazo a [este post](http://maria.recipes/insulina).

El éxito de una dieta cetogénica reside en encontrar qué cantidad de hidratos de carbono, proteínas y grasas es la más adecuada para tí, según tu objetivo (perder grasa, ganar músculo, regular tu nivel de glucosa en sangre...) y según tus necesidades y condiciones médicas particulares.

Making low carb bread can be a real challenge for vegans, as most keto breads are heavily egg based. I am afraid I found very few options for vegan keto breads, but I have tried most of the ones in this roundup and they will not let you down!
If you are a fan of indian food, you will love to hear you can make roti out of coconut flour, out of ground flax, and you can even try to make naan with coconut flour!
These broccoli parathas are delicious and require very few ingredients; simply substitute the cream cheese for your favorite almond cheese and you are in business!
For bread buns, you can enjoy these almond buns which are amazing for your morning toast!
If you miss crunchyness in your keto life, these crackers will save your day, and would make an awesome appetizer for your next low carb party.
And last but not least – the next recipes are probably the most bread-like, BUT they use vital wheat gluten, which might be a problem for some. I however sometimes use gluten for sausages or for bread and have no problem with it, so I thought I would include these as well: this recipe makes for an amazing looking bread loaf (and is very similar to a recipe that I myself make and that I love!), you can make a nutty bread and you can even make her low-carb foccacia! Hats off to Martine for these, they look absolutely delicious!

Eating vegetarian keto is quite difficult, but eating keto AND vegan seems almost impossible! So if you are vegan and are thinking of getting out of the high carb low fat funk, ori f you are an omnivore and want to introduce some more plant based protein in your diet, I am sure you will find some recipes here that will sound good! I have put together the best recipes I have found: some I have tried and loved, other ones are in my to-do list, buta ll of them seem amazing! This is the first part of a three-part Vegan Recipe roundup. And to start it right… let´s talk breakfast! Keto Breakfast doesnt always have to be eggs and bacon. I´m sure you will find these plant-based recipes to be just as satisfying! Bullet Proof coffee is okay, but [rocket fuel latte](https://www.healthfulpursuit.com/2015/04/rocket-fuel-latte/) is even better. Just use a vegan protein poder instead of collagen and you are good to go! This [no-bake Keto Granola](maria.recipes/ketoGranola) can be customized whichever way you like, and is perfect for those who miss crunchy cereal in the morning! If you like hemp hearts, these [overnight “oats”](https://www.healthfulpursuit.com/recipe/vanilla-keto-overnight-oats/)will be a perfect way to start your day – no cooking required: Smoothies are great if you are in a rush: try it [with berries](https://lowcarb-vegan.net/low-carb-vegan-smoothies/), a [chai-infused smoothie](https://www.healthfulpursuit.com/recipe/chai-pumpkin-keto-smoothie/) or go for a classic [chocolate flavor](http://ketodietapp.com/Blog/post/2015/03/04/Chocolate-Keto-Smoothie).
