Blueberry Keto Bites (V, GF)

Are you even keto, bro?

I’m just kidding, but seriously, keto is all the rage right now! If you’re not familiar with the ketogenic diet, ketosis is a metabolic state when your body switches from burning carbs and fat for energy to burning ONLY fat and ketones. The Keto diet teaches your body to burn fat more efficiently by entering a metabolic state called ketosis. This diet is used to lower blood sugar, lose weight, reduce inflammation, and so much more. I’m not keto, but I’ve never said no to something that looks and tastes as good as these Blueberry Keto Bites!
