This entry is part 16 of 17 in the series Live Streams

Every week we do a live broadcast where we answer questions, talk about fun stuff, and more! Starting in January 2020, we switched to a new platform where we can broadcast to YouTube and Facebook at the same time. It’s pretty cool, actually. You can find the stream on YouTube or Facebook

We talked about:

  • Chocolate mint 10% off this week until Monday.
  • New sample flavor: Lemon Meringue
  • We had a question from our Facebook group “I’m having a hard time getting my fat goal what should I do?” Fat is a lever, protein is a goal and carbs you want as few as possible.
  • How can you do keto when other carb eaters are in the house wanting you to cook all of the time?
  • “I’ve been doing keto for a while but I haven’t seen any weight loss. What am I doing wrong?”
  • Can you use your points and the 10% coupon at the same time?
  • What is your favorite fat to use for keto chow?

We talked about:

  • Vanilla is on sale 10% off this week. Vanilla is super easy to customize to make “weird” and exciting flavors, lends itself to all kinds of tomfoolery.

  • This month is Military appreciation month. Did you know Keto Chow has a military and first responder discount? Thank you Military and first responders!

  • How much protein do you need on a ketogenic diet? Probably more than you think and more is better than less.

  • The importance of adding enough water, getting the flavor right.
  • If you’re near Draper Utah, be sure to drop by. We have products and sales in the “store” that aren’t on the website.
  • Betsy made a great suggestion: if you feel like you need to snack on something, don’t forget about pickles!
  • It’s cheaper and often faster to order directly from the Keto Chow site instead of Amazon, if you do order from Amazon and there’s a problem with the order please be aware that there is VERY little Keto Chow can do to fix the problem. You’ll need to deal with Amazon.
  • Laura posted a funny picture with the caption “me when the shaker bottle spills down the side a lil but like…… I’m not wasting perfectly good Keto Chow”

Keto Chow and COVID-19

We all understand that for many people, Keto Chow plays a significant role in their success on a ketogenic diet and is particularly vital in stressful times like this. Several customers of ours are nurses and doctors that really have no time for any other food right now and we are humbled to play a small part in helping them. We wanted to give everyone an update on how COVID-19 is impacting Keto Chow, so here you go! =)

Your ability to get Keto Chow

For many people, their primary concern is: “hey, can I still get my Keto Chow?” Currently, the answer to that is a resounding “Yes!” We have ample inventory of Keto Chow on-hand at our Draper Utah warehouse, with a good supply also dispatched out to Amazon fulfillment centers (and “grocery food” like Keto Chow is currently prioritized going into Amazon’s warehouses). Although you can buy Keto Chow on Amazon, it is far less expensive to get directly from us which also gives you the bulk discounts, loyalty program and other benefits that are not available on purchases through Amazon. We actually have enough inventory on-hand to last for several months even with a complete shutdown of our upstream production and we JUST got a new shipment of Chocolate, our most popular flavor. We’re doing exceptionally well in this regard.

Both carriers that we use (UPS and USPS) have indicated that they are still moving packages and are doing a great job handling the increased number of shipments. I haven’t seen statistics but I’m guessing it’s a lighter load than the week before Christmas.

We have an amazing team of people that are working at our Draper warehouse, shipping the orders, handling local customers that are picking up orders, and generally being awesome. The members of the Keto Chow team that can work outside the office are doing so to limit the exposure. If you call about an order or send us an email, we can help you out wherever we are.

Keto Chow – shelf stability, how long does it last?

As noted in a recent blog post, the shelf life of unopened Keto Chow is 2 years with no detectable change to the flavor or nutrition. Each package has a “best by” date printed on the package that lets you know how long it will last. We work hard to maximize the shelf life and cycle through the oldest product out first. The “Flavor of the week” program aids in this. If you have Keto Chow that’s past the “best by” date, you are still unlikely to notice any change; the main issue you might see is a slow degradation of certain vitamins that would make it unsuitable for ALL of your food for an extended period of time. In other words: don’t use ‘expired’ Keto Chow for 3 meals a day for weeks or months at a time with no other food; but using ‘expired’ Keto Chow for 1 or 2 meals a day is something that I have done in the past and will do in the future.

Mixing Keto Chow in difficult circumstances

By far, the easiest way to mix up Keto Chow is with heavy cream. It requires a simple shaker bottle and little else. Heavy cream is also somewhat readily available right now. Based on my own observations, it’s been difficult to find many everyday essentials but heavy cream has been in-stock at every grocery store I’ve been to this week.

Butter is more work to mix, but stores longer, is less expensive, has fewer carbs, and is delicious. I highly suggest you give it a shot if you can find butter. Personally, I use the cheapest salted (or unsalted but I like the salt) butter I can find. I don’t worry about grass-fed or anything else – you’re welcome to use that if you like the flavor more, but I haven’t seen compelling evidence of any metabolic advantage to grass-fed butter. You can also use the same method as butter to use other “hard” fats like coconut oil.

Avocado oil is a good choice if you have no access at all to refrigeration, I have a great write-up on my own experience using it while camping. Avocado oil is very shelf-stable and the sort of thing you could put in your basement with a bag of Keto Chow and rest assured that with some water, you’re set for days!

Powdered cream is also an option if you account for the particular issues it brings along: it’s shelf-stable but also costs more, is bulkier, has more carbs, and does not taste as good as liquid heavy cream.

Could I be infected by COVID-19 via a package?

The short answer is “probably not.” A NIH study found that the SARS-CoV-2 virus survives up to 24 hours on cardboard, which is shorter than the 2-3 days a typical package we ship takes. UPS simply says on their COVID-19 page that “The World Health Organization (WHO) and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have stated that the likelihood of novel Coronavirus contaminating cardboard or other shipping containers is low.”

Live Stream recording from Mar 17, 2020

This entry is part 9 of 17 in the series Live Streams

Every week we do a live broadcast where we answer questions, talk about fun stuff, and more! Starting in January 2020, we switched to a new platform where we can broadcast to YouTube and Facebook at the same time. It’s pretty cool, actually. You can find the stream on YouTube or Facebook

We talked about:

  • Natural Strawberry is 20% off this week – it’s the one flavor sweetened with Monk Fruit.
  • We have canceled our monthly meet up due to the COVID-19 precautions. Sadly we will not be having our Brazilian BBQ. But we will have it another time.
  • Should you be carb cycling on Keto? Some people *might* need it but we think most do not. Here is a clip of our friend and fitness trainer Bronson Dant who says you need to have a purpose and plan if you are going to carb cycle.
  • Holly and Steve from Keto Chow left today to pick up their daughter in North Dakota. Along the way, they’re doing small meetups. They have already stopped in Idaho Falls and Butte. Subsequent stops include Billings (Mar 18), Bismarck (Mar 18), Rapid City (Mar 20), and near Mt. Rushmore (Mar 20). More details in the Keto Chow Facebook Support Group and the Keto Chow Instagram account.
  • What fats can you use? Can you use Cream Cheese? Any that you can order online?
  • One thing that this Covid-19 virus has really got us thinking about is being prepared. Keto Chow has a 2-year shelf life, it is something you can have in your food storage for such an occasion. Fat is a little harder to keep on hand; avocado oil, coconut oil, lard, and tallow will keep for a long time – some work better for different flavors and some do not. Fat Works has different fats in cute jars for storage. You can keep butter in the freezer for a long time. Also, you can use a powdered cream; though it usually has more carbs, it is a good option to have in an emergency.
  • We have a giveaway going on right now with Choc Zero and Nush. It runs through Thursday so make sure and go to our Facebook page or Instagram and enter.
  • For Keto Salt Lake we are working with our venue and our speakers to find a new date for the conference. We will let you know our Keto Salt Lake plans on March 30th.
  • Can you make a bunch of shakes on Sunday (or whichever day) and do meal prep?
  • We are working on a new food pyramid for our Keto Chow shirts.
  • Think positive, during this time of trial for our world, don’t let yourself get derailed, keep calm and keto on. You have a superpower that is helping you get your health in check. It can keep you healthy if you keep it up.
  • Our kids have 41 classes, I think I may be busy helping them with their online homework tomorrow.
