Butternut squash is a type of winter squash that contains 2-3 times more carbs than summer squash.

I admit ...

Keto Pumpkin Smoothie

When switching to a low-carb diet, most people avoid smoothies: They are full of sugar, aren't they? You have to be careful not just with the sweeteners you use but also certain fruits.

Homemade Pumpkin Purée

One of the things I enjoy most about eating low-carb is that I get to make my own high-quality ingredients. The issue with commercially available products is not just the amount of additives.
