ARTFUL PALATE Favorite Low-Carb Products You Need to Try!

As a food lover, I am always in search of high quality, tasty, and nutritious foods to share with our clients!  While I love preparing dishes and cooking myself, as a busy mom of 3, I understand there will always be times you want something to grab-and-go.  For that reason, and specifically for all of you on our Fast. Eat.Live.program, I specially designed this list!
….If you don’t yet know about this simple lifestyle nutrition system (Fast.Eat.Live.) to achieve the total body composition you want, request info via my contact form!  For more information also see my husband, Scott’s page:  https://www.ignitestoredenergy.com

Here are some of our favorite low-carb products to support your weekly Fast.Eat.Live. Nutrition goals!!

Our clients come from all different regions, where product offerings can vary. Sometimes it’s easier just to have a few products delivered, so you aren’t searching for suitable items in your grocery store and overwhelmed looking at all the labels. I’ve already done that research for you here!
We are AMAZON PRIME fans over here, so most of the following are all available via this delivery method, with next day or 2 day shipping (a few exceptions). However, some of these items are also found in your local markets or on their individual sites, if you have the time to look.  I just prefer FREE amazon shipping when an option.
Firstly, we recommend you buy a good low-carb protein powder as you start F.E.L.  We prefer collagen or whey for the system goals, but there are plant-based options if needed. Contact me with questions about this. These specific types and brands I’ve included, we buy ourselves. They all mix well with liquid, taste delicious, and have almost no carbs/serving!  I also use these protein powders in some of my recipes.  You’ll see some noted throughout the website.
Most of these protein powders are even appropriate to integrate in on a “fast” day. Remember, you’re really fasting from carbs/sugar on our program. The unflavored varieties here are actually 0 carb, 0 sugar so the ideal option to help get you through your first 30 hours on the program! The Perfect keto Chocolate is a close second. These are great mixed with coffee too.  The collagen helps with muscle building and repair.
Protein Powders:
•Collagen Peptides Powder (16oz) | Grass-Fed, Paleo and Gluten Free – Unflavored
(0 carb/0 sugar)
•Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides (20 oz.) Unflavored (0g carb/0gm sugar)
•Vital Proteins Collagen Protein Matcha flavor
•Perfect Keto Chocolate Protein Powder: Collagen Peptides grass-fed  with MCT Oil Powder
•Primal Kitchen Collagen Fuel Protein Mix, Vanilla Coconut – Non-Dairy Coffee Creamer & Smoothie Booster- Supports Healthy Hair, Skin, Nails and Joints, Promotes Muscle Repair
MCT oil is also a great addition to add in to your diet, even on a fasting day mixed with coffee.  You don’t need much for benefit.  Reach out with any questions about this supplement. The option I included below is set at a great price!
•Nature’s Way 100% Potency Pure Source MCT Oil from Coconut– 16 Fluid Ounce
BELOW YOU WILL FIND MORE LOW-CARB TREATS, SNACKS, & HEALTHY SWAPS TO EQUIP YOUR PANTRY:
Low Carb, Whole Food, No Added Sugar Protein Bars:
•Perfect Keto Bars,  No Added Sugar. 10-11g of Protein, Coconut Oil, and Collagen, with a Touch of Sea Salt and Stevia. They come out to around $3 a bar. The texture is different than most other nutrition bars, but as far as a bar goes, these are extremely low-carb and have the nutrition and flavor you’d want.
For those who want a pre-packaged low carb (only 1 gm sugar) supplement bar, this is a great option and will satisfy any of your dessert cravings. We’ve tried all the flavors, and they’re all good!  Great Phase 1 or 2 F.E.L. snacking!
•Almond butter chocolate brownie
•Salted caramel
•Bulletproof Collagen Protein Bars 6 Pack, Chocolate Variety Pack,
2 Fudge Brownie, 2 Mint Chocolate Chip, 2 Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
These are another no sugar added collagen protein bar option and offered here at a better price than I have seen in the supermarkets.  They are just slightly higher carb than the Perfect Keto bars, but delicious, and a different texture. It’s nice to try different options to see which is your favorite!  With 12 grams of protein, these are a great supplement snack.
•Primal Kitchen Macadamia Sea Salt Collagen Protein Bars, 1.7 oz, Pack of 12, Gluten Free, Paleo – Contains Eggs
Here is a third option for Keto/low-carb nutrition bars, with a similar carb and sugar count to the Bulletproof ones (so, higher than Perfect Keto).  These are more chewy than the Perfect Keto Bars, and in my opinion sweeter.  These have monk fruit extract and a little honey.  Try them all and see which you like best!
Snacks:
•Gourmet Organic Roasted Seaweed (Nori) Snack, 0.15 Ounce (Pack of 16)
Great crunchy salty snack you can integrate even on a fasting day! Certainly good for the rest of your week.

NuNaturals Sugar-Free Vanilla Syrup Natural Stevia Sweetener
0 Calories, 0 Sugar, 0 Carbs
This is an alternative vanilla syrup you can add to your favorite dessert or coffee beverage.  Most vanilla syrups are high carb or if sugar-free, made with artificial sweeteners. This has nothing artificial in it, but a better nutrition profile than most anything out there! The consistency isn’t quite like syrup, but it will add both sweetness and the traditional vanilla flavor to your coffee or Keto treat.
•NuNaturals Chocolate Flavored Sugar-Free Pourable Syrup
0 Net Carbs (Chocolate Syrup 3 Pack, 6.6 oz)
This stuff is like Hershey’s chocolate syrup, but much better for you!  It’s stevia sweetened, but that flavor doesn’t over-power. It’s a rich & thick dark chocolate. It’s a great addition to coffee, keto ice cream or other no sugar treats.

Although a clear liquid, these are preferred for after you’ve completed your fast.
