Hi! I created Ketology after struggling for years with hormonal changes and weight gain. As I got older, I found managing my weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. Within 3 months of switching to a ketogenic lifestyle tailored for my age, I not only shed 30 pounds of stubborn fat, but my mood improved, my focus sharpened and I have had nothing but positive effects! Learn more about my journey here.

Creamy pasta alfredo is such a satisfying comfort food that typically is shunned for it’s fat content – with butter and heavy cream…however when you use good quality products, on keto, Alfredo sauce (or if you add bacon and egg, Carbonara) has been one of my go-to meals since switching to a keto lifestyle.

In this quick video – I demonstrate how to make Carbonara – however alfredo is even simpler with just the butter (use grass fed, like Kerry Gold) and heavy cream with parmesan and I like to finish it off with some pepper. As I’ve shared recently, NuPasta is my new obsession however zucchini noodles are also delicious with this keto alfredo sauce! With the low carb alfredo sauce, I also like to mix in chunks of chicken breast for some extra protein – chicken and alfredo are a match made in keto heaven!

Mangia!
