Oven-Baked Pork Rind Breaded Shrimp

Seafood in the diet is great for health and pretty much all of it is keto-friendly due to having almost no carbs.

It turns out that if we eat animals and they are fed a poor diet, it impacts our health as we’re ingesting things we shouldn’t be through a proxy.

Free-range animals get a diverse diet and since creatures from under the sea tend to eat plankton and algae, they accumulate a lot of nutrients we can’t get any other way.

Omega-3 fatty acids are probably the best example of this principle in practice; they protect our general health, especially improving the state of our cardiovascular system but are almost exclusively found in seafood.

Omega-3 fatty acids infuse the blood with their goodness and protect the blood vessels from rigidity and rupturing.

High blood pressure is lowered too and high-density level (HDL) cholesterol that aids blood vessel repair is increased.

Overall, omega-3 fatty acids should be eaten on a daily basis to balance out the saturated fats from red meat.

Shrimp is a common shellfish, available in quite a number of subtypes.

It does put a bead of sweat on the brow to peel, but nutritional benefits from eating it are worth the trouble.

There is some cholesterol in shrimp, but there’s no reason to fear eating it – one medical study has shown that eating 300g of shrimps a day actually decreased triglycerides and had a positive impact on HDL-LDL ratio.

Now, what was that with breadcrumbs for breading?

There’s actually a tiny trick for keto dieters to get the same effect without carbs – pork rinds.

Since most pork rinds have no carbs but are loaded with just fat and protein, they’re a perfect substitute for breadcrumbs.

Some of these are even enriched with all sorts of flavors so you can avoid dullness.

Who needs breadcrumbs?

One last thing… you should try this 2-minute "after-dinner ritual" that burns up to 2 pounds of belly fat per day…

"All this by a 2-minute "after-dinner ritual?" I asked.

I met an old friend for lunch last month and I was super impressed with how good she looked.

She said, "It’s not so much about the "after-dinner ritual", but more about how it gives you a regenerative form of deep sleep that is responsible for everything we need to dramatically increase our fat burning metabolism and improve our health and appearance."

Even though I was skeptical, I’ve been struggling with my weight over the last few years, so I gave it a shot and watched the same video she did.

Well, it’s only a couple weeks later and you know what they say about how "you can’t transform your body overnight"…

They’re right – it actually took me 16 days to lose 22 pounds.

Now it’s my girlfriends asking ME what I’M doing differently!

Imagine your body being beach ready before Memorial Day.

Imagine enjoying the foods you love: pasta, wine, or even a dessert — completely guilt-free.

And imagine feeling good and living your life without obsessing about every single calorie you eat…

All while knowing your health is being protected by one of the most powerful natural healing rituals ever discovered.
