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.

Great recipe. However, there seems to be a mistake? Ingredients say 4 tablespoons but the method only refers to 2 tablespoons of pesto.


Thank you! Oh that is for each sea bass fillet so it is a total of 4 😊


Please help me this information to loss weight.. Thank you[quote][/quote]
