This is a super fast meal that can be eaten anytime of day.  Sometimes the eggs are scrambled, sometimes they are fried, I even microwave them if I'm in a huge rush.  The side fruit or vegetable is interchangeable and depends on what is currently available!

Of course, part of the ease in preparation comes from taking oil in syringes. Learning how to consume oil in this method allows for ingredients to be eaten plain (as many people like), not swimming in fat. This is a skill that is best learned slowly using small amounts of oil to start with.  Overtime, people master this technique and are more easily able to consume the fat.  You could swap some oil out for cream, mix some of the oil (or even mayonnaise) into the eggs and scramble them, but most likely you will have to have some oil or fat on the side if you are at a higher ratio.

My mom, Arlene, has been a Registered Nurse (RN) for almost 40 years.  Through her career she has worked in the OB/GYN, Pediatrics, Med Surgery, Oncology, and Dialysis.  For the last 16 years she has been the school nurse in the same elementary school where I attended as a kid.  During her time in school, she has experienced a vast range of medical issues in her students including blindness resulting from a detached retina, scoliosis,  brain tumors, "lost" erasers in noses, severed finger tips, leukemia, bone fractures and even seizures. There have been two kids treated with the ketogenic diet come through her office as well. My mom has an interesting and uncommon perspective of seeing the diet work! Her answers to the questions below are in italics.

Please note that I am not providing any medical or legal advice in this post.  I am sharing personal tips and links to other information that I have found to be helpful!  Everyone's situation is unique and will require your own personal research and education before implementing the ketogenic diet at school.

When we were at the 4:1 ratio, this was a method that I came up with to combine a large portion of fat with a vegetable,  the goal was to visually "bulk up" a meal.  The amount of vegetables can sometimes look incredibly small sitting on a plate, trying to serve 15g of carrots in 11g of butter has resulted in meal refusal on more than one occasion in our house.  This is intended to be a side dish to be served alongside a protein.  This recipe is very flexible, you can use any vegetable or seasonings you like.  You will have to enter (into the ketocalculator) the needed ingredients of this recipe + a protein and possibly extra fat to meet individual needs.  I almost always used this on nights when the oven was already on, I have cooked it at many different temperatures, it has always turned out ok!  Don't be afraid to change the proportions of cream, egg and butter.  As long as the egg is included, it will cook up just fine.
