10 best Keto Mediterranean recipes in one article! This came as a request from our Instagram page follower and we decided to make it happen! Yes, people sometimes don’t have the time or will to search through the specific section of our page. Well, we decided to help them here! 😉
Keto Mediterranean diet became even more popular in the past months and even though we were the first to promote it, there are now different approaches to it. As you know, we don’t see it as a diet but a lifestyle and we follow three simple postulates:
- Natural, healthy, fresh ingredients…
- Homemade food, slow cooking, patience…
- Fun, laughter, comedy, enjoyment of sunshine and life…
When we are asked to explain our KMD to newcomers we always remind them of these 3 simple postulates! Especially those Ketonians that did not have much success with standard Keto and would like to try out a healthier approach.
