Yes this recipe is keto friendly... no I don't follow a keto diet. I prefer eating for LIFE and that means BALANCED. I do not support the keto diet because I am a nutritionist and low-carbohydrate diets may increase your risk for kidney damage, osteoporosis, abnormal heartbeat, lipid abnormalities and even sudden death. If your ketogenic diet is high in protein, it could also increase your risk for diabetes, cancer and overall premature mortality. So why on earth would I ever try to get my clients to go keto? I wouldn't. I teach my clients how to live long happy healthy abundant lives. I do NOT think one needs to go through life without ever having grain or treats again. All things in balance.
