What Are Keto Cheese Shells?
What are keto cheese shells? They’re a tortilla or taco shell made of entirely cheese! They make a super tasty meal that can be made in 5 minutes, which makes them an absolute game-changer for low-carbers!
How to make a Keto Cheese Shell in the Oven:
Cover a pizza pan with Parchment Paper (NOT wax paper). Mix the shredded cheeses together, then evenly spread them over the parchment paper (in a circle shape). Bake the cheese shell for 5 minutes. Pour off any extra oil as soon as it comes out of the oven.
How to Make Cheese Shells in the Microwave:
Place cheese onto a piece of parchment paper. Then microwave for two minutes. Now you can either fold them or drape them over a large bowl to form a taco shell shape. … and put it in the refrigerator. Then wait two minutes.
Do Cheese Shells Have Carbs?
Yes, a small amount of carbs, most cheese has 1 carb per ounce. Many brands will list zero carbs because of FDA rules that say if a product is below 1 carb per serving it can be listed as zero even if it has .8 carbs. So, I generally count 1 ounce of cheese as 1 carb.
WHAT IS THE KETOGENIC DIET?
If you haven’t heard of The ketogenic diet (often called keto), it’s a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares similarities to paleo, Whole30, and Atkins. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat. When your body switches to burning fat for its primary fuel source, that’s when you hit ketosis.
While on the Keto diet you’re supposed to get at least 70 percent of your calories from fat, 15 to 25 percent from protein, and 10 percent from carbohydrates. You’re supposed to avoid all grains, legumes, root vegetables, fruit, (except berries) and sugar.
