Smoky Avocado Egg Salad

The ketogenic diet relies on dietary fats as a fuel source rather than glucose, thereby requiring a higher intake of fats (though low amounts of carbohydrates are acceptable).

Maple Roasted Pecans

"I love combining sweet and savory in snacks. While you could do a typical trail mix for a healthy snack, why not try new flavors and add antioxidants? Rosemary has been found to improve memory and learning (1). Other studies show it has anti-cancer effects (2, 3) and may reduce the stress hormone cortisol (4), [...]
