Italian Ricotta Cake goes Keto!

Italian Ricotta Cake goes Keto!

So being Italian I don’t limit myself to a certain time of day to indulge in a dessert???? So some days that means you pair it with breakfast and an espresso????Most days I save it for after the kids are in bed as my reward for having a great day, hitting my macros, and doing the best I can. It’s never about being perfect, but PROGRESS. And that dessert at the end of the day is rewarding my effort of striving to do the best I can to fuel my body and live a healthy and happy life. It’s helped me to great a new habit that helps me reach my Heath goals. As someone that has made sure to include a dessert every day for the last almost 4 years it’s helped me to make Leto a LIFESTYLE that I truly enjoy. It doesn’t feel restrictive. Now if you don’t like sweets that’s fine! Maybe you can do a savory treat! But for me I needed to find a way for Keto to work for me in a way that it felt sustainable and enjoyable. Because at the end of the day DIETS DONT WORK because diets have an end. But lifestyle changes DO WORK. Not only did ai lose the weight. But I have maintained it for over 3.5 years! I am heathy, I am more active now, and I have more energy. So I hope my recipes help you find that. A change that you can spot as a lifestyle to help you feel your best without feeling restricted!
