My husband and I have been on a ketogenic diet since June 2013, yet one of our physicians still asks whether this “diet” is sustainable in spite of our having lost a combined 180 lbs! Moreover, my husband's blood pressure has gone from the verge of needing medication to being low normal. Still, the physician asks if we can sustain it long term. In fact, more than one medical professional has told me that this way of eating is “too difficult to follow” or “too restrictive”.
One of the goals of this cookbook is to prove that notion wrong. This cookbook has the "everyday" recipes that my family and I have enjoyed on our very own journey to health. There are some low carb “treat”, but the majority of the recipes in this book are the simple recipes that have become part of our day to day lives. There are delicious, filling breakfasts that will keep your tummy happy when it’s tired of scrambled eggs and bacon and hearty sides that will never make you feel deprived. This is “diet” food that you will be proud to share at any potluck and your “carbivore” friends will expect you to share! I snuck in a few very low carb treats for birthdays, holidays, or special occasions because these are the foods with which we have also celebrated on our journey. It is my sincere wish that these recipes can help you sustain a very low carb diet as a delicious life style.

Bestselling author Kristie Sullivan teamed up with her teenaged daughter Grace to deliver the ultimate keto family cookbook, Growing Up Keto. This inspiring new book stems from Kristie's personal struggles with growing up obese and then finally finding the right nutritional path for herself and, eventually, her family. The keto lifestyle proved to be the right fit for Kristie, who experienced dramatic weight loss and optimized health. Above and beyond being a success story, Kristie is a busy working mom who is devoted to the health of her two children. When she saw her own daughter begin to struggle with weight just as she had as a child, Kristie committed to supporting her by providing delicious low-carb options, focusing on health instead of weight, and setting an example. With her mother's guidance, Grace made the choice to adopt a keto lifestyle herself, and after six years of success, this mother-and-daughter duo bring to you a first-of-its-kind cookbook dedicated to young adults, teens, kids, and—you guessed it—their moms and dads!
Growing Up Keto combines the Sullivans' heartwarming family narrative with a practical, safe, and kid-friendly approach to adopting a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle. The recipes featured in the book were created with the health needs and tastes of kids and teens in mind. Some are so simple that youngsters can take over in the kitchen with little or no help from mom or dad. There are also recipes for celebrations with extended family and friends and meals that parents and kids can cook together, making even simple weeknight dinners more fun.
Kristie also includes useful tools and information for parents of kids who eat keto, such as tips and tricks for surviving sleepovers, camp, and other social activities that involve food as well as a guide to helping kids make independent and informed choices for a lifetime of healthy eating.
Growing Up Keto is complete with breakfasts, including quick morning meals; lunches, including handy tips on packing for school and overnight trips; main dishes, including celebratory meals; and, of course, classic desserts that kids love.

Crazy Busy Keto makes sticking to a low-carb, ketogenic diet easier than ever by making it simple. Whether you're juggling work, school, children, pets, travel, or all of the above, you can follow keto with the simple tips and shortcuts outlined in this book.
Crazy Busy Keto is a phrase we use when the week seems to spin out of control—like when the school project has to be done tomorrow but necessitates a trip to the craft store, which you will do after the dental appointment and the PTA meeting on your way to pick up the dog from the vet. How are you going to fit in a meal that leaves you feeling satisfied without kicking you out of ketosis? Kristie Sullivan has done the work for you by finding great low-carb options wherever you are, in as much or as little time as you have to eat. From grab-and-go convenience store and grocery store selections to hotel breakfasts to restaurant lunches and dinners, her quick and easy tips will streamline your keto life. There are breakfast options that are faster than a drive-thru, lunch ideas that don’t require refrigeration, and shopping tips that will save you time and money. Kristie has also included special tips for traveling, storing foods on the go, and slashing minutes off the clock each day, along with easy ways to avoid food waste.
Each chapter features recipes that can be made without access to a full kitchen and that use common ingredients—no special-ordering anything online. Many of the recipes are traditional favorites that can easily be cooked in a microwave, such as lasagna, spinach artichoke dip, and even cheesecake, which can be made with as few as five ingredients and tastes amazing! In addition, Kristie gives ideas of lightning-fast assembled meals that will hit the spot in a pinch. The book also includes shopping lists for stocking your pantry, fridge, and freezer so that you have what you need, when you need it.
