Hi! I created Ketology after struggling for years with hormonal changes and weight gain. As I got older, I found managing my weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. Within 3 months of switching to a ketogenic lifestyle tailored for my age, I not only shed 30 pounds of stubborn fat, but my mood improved, my focus sharpened and I have had nothing but positive effects! Learn more about my journey here.

I love zucchini – always have, even before my keto days. Baked zucchini a la Thomas Keller is something I could very easily eat daily and never get tired of it! Fried zucchini has always been a favorite but the traditional breaded and deep-fried in less that healthy oils certainly aren’t keto-friendly.

However, thanks to pork rinds which make a fantastic breadcrumb alternative and air fryers, you can make delicious, crispy zucchini fries at home without the heavy breading and poor quality oils. No air fryer? No problem! These turn out fabulously in the oven too! I like to broil them if using the oven for the last minute or two for extra color and crispness!
