  When my husband and I started the Keto way of eating our pantry was given a serious overhaul. With the exception of a few things for the kids, almost everything was given away or just thrown out. We felt it would be easier to stick with our new diet if all of the bad food wasn’t around to tempt us.

This Cabbage Soup is one of the first I have converted and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. If you are looking for a warm, fillingRead More →
