Jasmine’s Tips on Perfectly Roasted Veggies:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Lay down a piece of parchment paper for easy clean up
  • Put veggies on baking sheet and drizzle them with avocado oil (with high heats you want to stay clear of olive oil so you can maintain the nutrients and structure of the oil)
  • Sprinkle veggies with Himalayan salt and roast for 10–15 minutes

Episode 60 - Get Over the Fear of Jumping Into Keto with Leanne Vogel

We have an exciting show for you today as we help you get over the fear of jumping into the ketogenic diet with the Queen of Keto herself, Leanne Vogel!

Leanne started studying nutrition in 2007 to help her better understand her body and how it worked with the foods she was putting into it. Originally going to school to help herself, she discovered after graduation that she had learned too much not to help other people and that’s when her blog, “Healthful Pursuit” was born.

Being a super athlete, Leanne noticed after years of not having her menstrual cycle that she wasn’t performing at her best and was continually struggling to put on muscle. This sparked her interest in regulating her cycle, but after starting hormone replacement therapy she discovered it was stunting her training even more. She went to a naturopath begging for help and that’s where she was introduced to a ketogenic diet.

Desperate for a change, Leanne who was a vegan and whole-foods...
