After 6 years of following a ketogenic/low-carb lifestyle, I have decided to make the switch and try something new! It has been exciting to venture into new recipes and see how they impact how I look and feel. It has, also, been fun to incorporate new foods with my family to be able to encourage healthy habits with different styles of eating.
Here's what a day of health eating looks like for me on a balanced diet plan!
