If Drew and my Facebook live didn’t convince you Keto is pretty amazing, these recipes just might! Seriously, how is it possible these foods are “diet” friendly?! From what can only be described as pumpkin heaven to quite possibly the most amazing salad I’ve EVER laid eyes on and a little bit of hot chocolate to top it off, each of these recipes is beyond delicious.
