There are so many wonderful reasons to consider living a ketogenic lifestyle. For me personally, it’s to ward off diabetes as I have a high chance of developing the disease in the future (damned genetics!).
Many people don’t realize on the keto diet you get to eat so many delicious foods with lots of good and healthy fats.
Plus, keto can be family-friendly too. I often make keto meals as mains and then add in carbs like rice or potatoes as a side for my kids to make a more rounded family meal.
I love to try keto recipes, and I especially love not having to cook a separate meal for my kids.
