Sustainability Tips, Productivity Hacks, and Recognizing Opportunities
Our Keto + Paleo Certifications are Here!
Exciting news! Your favorite Purely Elizabeth products are now keto and paleo certified. The same granolas, cauli hot cereals, and nut + seed bars that you know and love were recently approved by the Paleo Foundation.
Our mission at Purely Elizabeth has always been to help people everywhere thrive on their wellness journeys by living purely. That’s why we created each of these products with health and nutrition in mind. We are proud to accommodate customers with a variety of lifestyles, including keto, paleo, and grain-free.
For those who are new to these diets, we have outlined the basics for you and broken down the differences in the following sections below.
What is Keto?
If products are keto certified, this means they follow the ketogenic diet. This high-fat and low-carb diet can offer many health benefits. The main idea behind this diet is to replace carbs with fats in order for the body to burn fat for fuel rather than carbs.
Ketosis is the metabolic state your body goes into as a result of this reduction in carbs. During this state, your body becomes more efficient at burning fat and by turning it into energy. The keto diet helps lower blood sugar and insulin levels by shifting your body’s metabolism away from carbs, and instead towards ketones and fats. These massive reductions help supply more energy to the brain, along with numerous health benefits.
How to Get Into Ketosis?
Getting into ketosis means that you need to keep track of your net carbs. Net carbs are equal to the total carbohydrates in a food minus its grams of total fiber. Most keto diets aim for you to consume between 20 to 50 grams of net carbs a day. Many of our keto-approved products have about half the net carbs as similar foods from other brands.
Purely, Naturally Keto
It’s important for our company to be as transparent as possible with the ingredients used to make our foods. Unlike other keto brands, we never use artificial sweeteners in our products. We promise only to use natural, unrefined sweeteners like coconut sugar. You can find our ingredient lists and nutrition facts on each individual product page of our website.

What is Paleo?
If you are following the paleo diet, you eat a whole-food-based diet. This means you avoid processed foods, dairy, sugar, legumes, grains, and trans fats. Your meals will consist of meat, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and healthy fats from paleo products.
Paleo is also sometimes referred to as the caveman diet or stone-age diet, as it is based on foods that were available to humans during the Paleolithic era (which dates from 2.5 million to 10 million years ago). People often choose to follow a paleo diet to return to eating what early humans ate, to lose weight, or maintain a healthy weight.

What is Grain-Free?
Going grain-free is a step beyond a gluten-free diet, eliminating all grains, including wheat products, rice, corn, and oats. A grain-free diet consists of most foods, including fruits, vegetables, legumes, meat, fish, seafood, eggs, dairy, nuts, seeds, and non-grain-based flours.
Going grain-free or limiting your grain intake can lead to higher energy levels, lower inflammation, and better digestion. Check out these 3 tips to help you transition to a grain-free diet.
