Keto Hair Loss: Why It Happens and How to Prevent It

What do a keto dieter,  raw vegan, and backpacker have in common? If they don’t eat enough, their hair may start falling out. In other words, keto doesn’t cause hair loss directly.

Complete Guide to Keto Camping, Hiking, and Backpacking

Complete Guide to Keto Camping, Hiking, and Backpacking

There is no better time to get out and surround ourselves with nature, but what are you supposed to eat? Ironically, the most popular camping foods, meals, and snacks are so highly processed that they bear little resemblance to real food. From the chips to the sugar-filled trail mix, the hotdog buns to the deli salads (and let’s not forget about s’mores), most classic camping foods are packed with processed carbs and far from being healthy. That being said, it is surprisingly simple to ...

Keto Crepes

Keto Crepes

Crepes are the perfect compromise between a thick, heavy pancake and a thin, soft tortilla. You can eat them by the stack, turn them into a breakfast wrap, or transform them into a uniquely satisfying dessert.

This is why it’s best to make them yourself to keep your meal keto-friendly as you satisfy your crepe craving. Simply replace the all-purpose flour and sugar for ...

Keto Egg Roll in a Bowl (Crack Slaw)

Egg rolls are delicious. They're crispy, packed full of flavor, and easy to eat, but they are far from being keto-friendly. At first, I thought it would be impossible to emulate an egg roll on keto.
