Must Try

A certified nutritionist and self-taught chef with a love for entertaining and experimenting with food, Lolita Carrico created Ketology after struggling for years with her own hormonal changes and weight gain. After having two children, she found that managing her weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. After researching the ketogenic diet thoroughly and understanding the science and nutritional aspects, she began her keto journey in 2018. Within three months, she shed 25 pounds and her mood improved, focus sharpened and her energy was through the roof. Four years later, she has maintained a 65-pound weight loss and has learned to intuitively follow a balanced keto lifestyle without sacrificing a thing!

While sweet potatoes aren’t 100% keto-approved, they do fall on the lower end of the glycemic index and are packed with health benefits, so I’m including this delicious recipe on my keto menu as a bit of a cheat that is well worth it in terms of flavor and nutrition.
