About Craveable Keto
Craveable Keto is not only a great cookbook, but it’s an excellent primer into the ketogenic world. Kyndra shares her painful past, not out of sympathy, but rather to encourage readers to let them know that there is hope for them, too.
Craveable Keto starts with Kyndra’s story and then moves on to her Top 12 Rules of the Weight-Loss Road. She then shares a break-up story, but not the kind you are probably thinking right now. It’s about breaking up with the scale. Moving on, she educates the reader in all things keto, including transitioning to a low-carb lifestyle and hidden sources of carbs (you might be surprised where some are found lurking).
When it comes to preparing for the keto lifestyle, she has the reader covered. Simple low-carb food swaps, stocking the kitchen, reducing waste, keto on a budget, tools and gadgets, techniques, meal plans, dining out, dining in, and navigating alcohol on a low-carb diet. And if you are unsure of what some cooking terms are, she has you covered with cooking terms defined.
