When I heard the term “Ketogenic lifestyle”, I was in University completing my degree in Psychology. I learned about this diet as a remedy for many mental health ailments, as well for children who are on the Autism Spectrum. This diet is starting to gain a following in popular culture as some stars like Halle Berry sing its praises for weight loss, anti-aging, and its reversal of many symptoms of diabetes. In many cases, people who wish to lose weight will use this diet as it strictly controls carbohydrate intake and calls for high fat and moderate protein. I am not always one to hop on to extreme ways of eating but it really peaked my interest and what better time to try it than before my wedding day.
There’s no doubt in my mind, if I had my dream life, I would travel 24/7. The growth I’ve experienced and lessons I’ve learned while travelling to different countries and witnessing different cultures has been monumental. I have every intention of seeing more and more the older I get. So far on my bucket list I’ve got a few places lined up: Peru to see Machu Pichu, Ireland to see the green landscapes and historic stoney walls, Cambodia to see the ancient temples.. I could go on. One thing is for sure, anytime I am travelling to another land I make sure I bring along some key essentials. I decided to write up a list for them here with some of my latest picks (Affiliated).
Does anyone get as excited as I do when they find a vegetable substitute for starchy white items like noodles or bread? I am not against having a baguette or nice big bowl of pasta once in a while but I personally feel better when I avoid those ingredients for the most part. I have seen versions of zucchini lasagna circling the web for some time now but this is the recipe that we’ve been using for years to get our veggie fix in. It is extra cheesy, and especially delicious. Not to mention it is vegetarian, gluten free, low carb and ketogenic friendly! A great alternative for anyone who is looking to add a healthier spin on the famous italian dish. Hope you enjoy!!
