🐻 Kate's Keto Gummies
We have been beyond blessed this year to have found the best school for Presley and Irie. They are both growing and thriving, academically and socially. We could not have asked for a better environment for our children and I look forward to the unique paths my awesome little gals will choose for themselves!
Outside of the Montessori curriculum, amazing teachers, and top-notch extra-curricular activities, I love that parents are in charge of packing our kids' lunches. The teachers are strict about food-sharing, too, and encourage packing fresh, whole foods for our babes' developing minds and bodies.
Our weekdays are hectic, so the Jaramillo girls keep school lunches simple and healthy-fat-fueled!
A typical lunch for my girls includes all of the following:
- Turkey and cheese roll-ups, or leftover protein from dinner
- Cauliflower, broccoli, and/or celery with peanut butter
- Berries (strawberries, raspberries, and/or blackberries)
- Raw Almonds
This is how we #makelunchcount - by leading with quality protein sources, adding healthy fats, and including whole, low-glycemic sources of carbohydrates. These lunches provide my kids with the energy and mental stamina needed to kick ass in their respective grades and activities.
An after-school treat that I'm equally proud to serve my mini-mes: keto gummies! This is the BEST recipe for ketogenic gummies ever! Make them, post your pics, and tag me so I can give you props for making lunch count in your life!
Kate's Keto Gummies
- 1 cup filtered water, divided
- 1 tsp LorAnn fruit-flavored oil (we love Strawberry Kiwi and Pineapple!)
- 3 envelopes Knox gelatin
- 2 Tbsp granular erythritol (I use So Nourished)
- 1 scoop MCT oil powder (I use Perfect Keto)
- Silicon candy molds
- Add 1/2 cup water to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Sprinkle the gelatin on top. Bring to a light boil, whisking frequently.
- Meanwhile, combine 1/2 cup of water and 1 tsp LorAnn oil. Set aside.
- Just as the water and gelatin begin to boil, stir in the erythritol and MCT oil powder until dissolved. Remove from heat and add the oil-flavored water.
- Pour the mixture into the cavities of your candy molds. I use all three of my molds, and each has 15 cavities.
- Move the filled candy molds to the fridge and let them set up for at least 2 hours.
- Enjoy! Makes about 45 gummies
