  1. [Resource] Oh, why do I crave!? (4 min read): Craving sugary snacks? Salty foods? Cravings draw attention to deficiencies in our body. Find out what they are and how to fix them.

  2. [Recipe] Low Carb Pumpkin Pecan Bars (15 min hands-on | 35 min total): Is it halloween yet? This is a dessert for fall. 5 net carbs in each (large) serving. We used butter instead of coconut oil and erythritol instead of the erythritol/stevia mix. Better than the chocolate chip cookies we recommended last time. Try it with whipped cream and more pecans. We did.

  3. [Resource] 13 Common Keto Mistakes (8 min read): A list of things to keep in mind while transitioning to keto. Our body has millions of processes that keep each other in check, so managing macros (fats/carbs/proteins) and micros (vitamins/minerals) is necessary for ketosis and good health. Points 2, 4 and 13 were particularly insightful for us.

  4. [Recipe] Almost Instant Keto Bread (1 min hands-on | 3 min total): There’s only one step in the instructions! Now, this isn’t the best keto bread we’ve tried, but it’s pretty darn close, especially for the time needed. It’s closer to an english muffin. We made it twice - once with coconut oil and once with butter. Butter was better. Toast it.

  5. [Resource] How to cheat on Keto (8 min read): If you’re going to cheat, cheat by eating higher carb versions of approved keto foods. The ‘Keto Flu’ section has a few tips that probably should be followed regardless.
