With all thanks to Chris Bair, this is a variation on his Keto Chow. I like it, but I have IBD and the fiber was causing a lot of problems and there was no way I could manage that many fish oil capsules and the multivitamin tablet.
The goal here is easy digestion and absorbtion. There are no tablets, all items labeled pill are capsules or gelcaps. Everything below the MCT oil is taken separately as pills, not part of the powder mix. These supplements are chosen for quality and digestablilty, not price. The multimineral could probably be left out, but it does bring up a few microminerals that would otherwise be lacking. The iron might be magic, because it is the only one I've ever found that doesn't make me nauseated. The fish oil is strong, but it is cheaper per day (.40 for 1 vs. .60 for 2) and only slightly more burpy than Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega.
The only ingredient measured by volume is the MCT oil. The cream is weighed. I use Darigold 40% cream, which is usually too thick to measure accurately by volume. Since I've got the scale out to weigh the powder, it is easy enough. A full day of powder is ~113 grams. I generally divide the fat and powder equally between two or three quart jars, with water to fill.
Also: More protein can be added with a different, not vitamin enriched powder. Add more fat for more calories. If you like more fiber and can tolerate it, psyllium husk powder (per the Keto Chow recipe) has a decent texture.
