Keto Alkaline Walnut Chilli NON Carne

Alkaline Keto Chilli Recipe

Keto Alkaline Walnut Chilli Con Carne (well, less the carne)

This is a fantastic recipe for those of you who are starting to follow my Alkaline x Keto guidelines (and if you want to know more about that CLICK HERE and let me know!)

This chili is very low carb (less than 7g per serve of net carbs), very high fat (23g fat per serve), and super-alkaline! It will help support nutritional ketosis, and keep your blood pH in that nice, slightly alkaline, range.

It’s also quite protein-rich for those of you who want to get your protein from whole, vegan, alkaline foods – and if you do want to adapt for those meat-eaters in your house you can by just adding minced beef (see here for more info on my ‘eating meat on the alkaline diet‘ approach).

Remember, the data tells us that when you combine the alkaline diet with the keto diet the results are even more powerful. The extra acidity that nutritional ketosis in the regular approach creates causes the benefits of keto to be attenuated after a few weeks. But if you keep it alkaline, the benefits just keep getting stronger and stronger…

We’re really onto something here and just scratching the surface…

    Do you have a menu for people that only eat once a day

    Hi Ross,

    I like the looks of your recipes, and I am wondering how you think about anti nutrients, and inflammatory agents, like phytic acid from nuts and beans and nightshades as I see that you use lots of these items. Do you recommend soaking bean, is there any way to reduce the negative inflammatory effects of the nightshades. I am going to start with your red lentil sweet potato soup but the walnut chili non carne looks great too….except for all the anti nutrients and night shades. I would love your thoughts and wisdom on this. Many Blessings, Deb)* T

    Hi Ross, Did you forget to mention the beans that show in your picture?

  4. Janice Reply

    There is kidney beans in the picture, but not in the recipe…?
    I just made chilli, and put three kinds of beans in, along with almost everything else in your recipe except the coconut milk and oil and a few other

    is there a reason you didn’t put beans? I am vegetarian, so I need the protein and fiber
    Thanks for your feedback

      In order to have a full protein you can mix nuts with beans or nuts with a grain, but that will increase the carbs for sure. I would pre soak both the nuts and beans to help with the anti nutrients and if you sprout the beans first, this will decrease the carbs slightly. 🙂
