More creativity with my ketogenic diet

I am trying to de-program myself after years of brainwashing by our government, educational institutions and the media.  As I have said before, we have been lied to about what food is "good for us" for years.  The one thing that came up on my medical tests is that I need to decrease protein and increase fats without increasing carbohydrates.  So I have put on my creative hat and I've pulled together some recipes.

You will need:
2 TBSP Sour cream
1/4-1/3 Cup fresh or frozen fruit (not processed)
1 TBSP Coconut butter or 2 TBSP unsweetened flakes
2 TBSP Heavy whipping creams
1 TBSP Cacao powder
1 tsp Cinnamon
6 drops Liquid Stevia

Sour Cream (yeah, don't put it in first)
I used my bullet and the first one that I made I put the sour cream in the bottom.  Wrong choice.  Start with the fruit.  The weight of it will pull it down once you flip it.

Fresh or frozen fruit
You can use any fresh or frozen fruit.  For instance I froze some peaches in 1/3 cup servings, Rainer cherries, blackberries, and blueberries will be 1/4 cup. Keep the fruit to 12-25 calories and under 6 grams carbs.

Add coconut and other ingredients
It doesn't make a large quantity.  But with the large amount of calories from fat it is very filling. This one serving is (peach) is 256 calories 194 from fat which means it is 76% fat.  This one is a little high in carbs with the net carbs at 7.8 grams.

Blend together
After a filling afternoon snack, I made myself a light salad for supper.  I made myself a different flavored smoothie for a bed-time snack.  The cinnamon is a key ingredient, especially before bed to help stabilize blood sugars.

Salad with Tuna, Cheddar Cheese & Avocado /sour cream dressing
Don't look too closely at the green dressing.  It still freaks me out just a bit.
