Dairy-Free Keto Options

When it comes to following a ketogenic diet, being dairy free can be incredibly difficult. It may seem like all the good snacks and high fat treats are all dairy...which most are, but that doesn't mean you are out of luck if you are dairy free. Many people are allergic to dairy, lactose intolerant, or have dairy sensitivities so today I am going to share with you some dairy alternatives when following the ketogenic diet.  Although there aren't a ton of options, I have found that you can get really creative with the options that we have.  My dairy-free keto go to's are: -Coconut Milk -Coconut Oil -Coconut Cream -Avocado -Nuts -Nut Butters  -Olive Oil -Ghee I love all things coconut so I find it easy to replace dairy with it! There are a ton of good dairy free fat bomb recipes out there as well! For those of you looking for some dairy free keto recipes, here are a few of my favorites!  Vegan Keto Harissa Mushroom Tacos Ve

My Resistance is My Power: Ketokademy & More Recap

The last weekend in May I had the opportunity to attend an event in Louisville, Kentucky called Ketokademy & More with our company Pruvit. After an intense weekend of education, emotional growth, community, and overcoming obstacles I really wanted to share my experience with all of you.  I have always been a fan of conferences and seminars that pump you up, but this event was on a totally different level. In the past, when I attended such events I always felt energized but not inherently different when I left. I can say with full confidence that attending this specific event helped me break through a major obstacle and removed a block I had been facing for years! The fact that this was an event put on by our company and not something I paid thousands of dollars to attend was pretty amazing as well.  What is Ketokademy & More? This event is broken into two parts. First, we have Ketokademy which is a jam-packed day hearing from scientists, doctors, and specia
