No Free Lunch – Epilepsy Dad

  • The keto diet is a high-fat diet used to treat hard to control epilepsy and its hard on his stomach.
  • In addition to his seizure medication, the diet forces him to also take vitamin supplements and medicine for reflux, constipation, and acidosis.
  • With that, there is fat in the crust and oil mixed in with the tomato sauce so he doesnt need to have oil on the side.
  • Weve lowered his ratio over the last year so that he needs less fat, but his diet is still more fat than not.
  • When we started the diet, we saw it as an alternative to more seizure medicine.

DIY Gluten-Free Baking Powder

  • As you may have noticed, I often use two ingredients in most baked goods: cream of tartar and baking soda.
  • Cream of tartar, also known as potassium bitartrate, is produced during the fermentation of grape juice.
  • A combination of these two ingredients acts as leavening agent: the magic happens when you mix alkaline baking soda with acidic cream of tartar.
  • Mix the baking soda and cream of tartar in a glass jar or an airtight container.
  • I bought mine in bulk on Amazon but you can find both ingredients in most grocery stores.
