This soft bread is a classic Keto bread recipe (ketogenic diet based on high consumption of fats, moderate proteins and low carbohydrates) and is perfect for breakfast. It is ideal in the morning when you are in a hurry, simply toasted and spread with ghee and accompanied with your favourite smoothie.

Thinking of you Happy Mamas, I recommend it at all stages of motherhood from preconception to breastfeeding because it’s  rich from the nutritional point of view, no sugar and it is very easy to prepare (for all super busy moms) and you will be able to keep it for several days with the same freshness of the first day!

Why it’s good for you and your baby?

  • It is rich in protein thanks to the presence of eggs. The proteins are naturally very filling and allow to stabilize the sugars in the blood. If you suffer from nausea and food aversion during pregnancy, protein as a snack or main course can help a lot. As you can imagine many vital cells are created during pregnancy and to grow your baby cells you need proteins and amino acids contained in them.
  • Contains a good mixture of fats in the form of coconut oil, coconut flour, almonds, chia seeds and eggs.

Your body needs the fat-soluble vitamins and other nutrients contained in foods rich in fat both during pregnancy and lactation. For example, the need for choline and vitA present in high concentrations in eggs significantly increases during pregnancy. Your child needs it for brain development, memory and learning abilities . The coconut, on the other hand, is rich in lipids, potassium, vitamins B, C and E and fibres. It strengthens the immune system and, due to the presence of lauric acid, it supports the bones structures. Omega 3 fats contained in chia seed and eggs are essential for mental health and vision development
