As you might already know if you follow this blog and our Keto Girl Facebook Group, the keto diet helps with weight loss, brain health, epilepsy and more! To keep the basis of the keto diet simple—you want fat to make up between 65% and 85% of your total diet, with protein accounting for 15% to 35% and carbs accounting for under 10%.

Morning Smoothies to Kickstart Your Day

Sep 08, 2019

This summer my husband and I got back to enjoying morning smoothies! Yes I do intermittent fasting from time to time because it's awesome but this summer my body craved healthy fruits and veggies in a big way so I answered it with morning smoothies! 

Morning smoothies are not only delish but they are also a delicious alternative that ensures that you are getting loads of naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Plus, you gotta love that smoothies retain all the filling, gut-friendly fiber from fruits and veggies.#winwin

There isn't a  science to smoothies, but in my opinion, a killer smoothie recipe should include some veggies ( leafy greens like kale and/or spinach) along with some fruit (berries are a solid low-sugar option and bananas add good texture),  healthy fats and protein ( nuts and nut butters, seeds, and avocado are awesome, a plant based protein powder and chia seeds rock too).

As the date got closer i started to sort of panic! I was thinking omg I think I have gone three days maybe five without my husband but 9 nights alone- wow- thats a long time! I had a mixture of anxiety and also excitement.
