My Health Journey and the Ketogenic Diet

My Health Journey and a Ketogenic Diet

If you’ve been following me over on Instagram you might have noticed me talking about a ketogenic diet or using hashtags on my photos like #keto or #lchf. Maybe you’ve wondered what that’s all about. So I’ve made a post to explain the diet, why I’ve switched to it, and why my recipes on this site are going to look a little different going forward.

Let me share with you my 5 key tips.

He’s so excited that he gets to sit at the same table as his friend Samantha from his kindergarten class. I have a feeling his teacher may decide to separate them sooner than later. 😉
