I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

I made this today for lunch. I didn't expect this to be so good, but it sure was! I also used only 12 ml of butter, and that was fine. Plus, I added some broccoli and mushrooms as well. Thank you for sharing!

Thank you for the lovely feedback!
