1 Year Ago Today: The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook Released!

I can’t believe it has been a year! 2018 was a big year for me for so many reasons, but it all started on January 9th, 2018 when my very first cookbook, The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook, released from Amazon and shipped out to the world!

I remember being so excited and also terrified, but mostly excited. I really never imagined anyone would buy it other than maybe my friends and family. I remember when it sold 1,000 and then 10,000 and I was AMAZED! Well, one year later it has sold 200,000 copies and to say I am stunned would be an incredible understatement.

I never set out to be a cookbook author, a blogger or an Instagrammer. I was and still am, just a busy mom who needed to find some relief from auto-immune issues, and I felt like the food I chose to put in my body could play a role in helping me feel better. For me, the solution I chose was keto and it turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made. One month after starting keto I started @ketointhecity_ so that people on my personal page wouldn’t have to look at pictures of endless avocados;) Then eventually it was annoying trying to write recipes in my captions or in comments, so I started a blog, then one day a year later or so a publisher called me and asked me to write a cookbook. It has been a fun and crazy keto journey!

I love sharing my life and my food with all of you. It turns out you guys like the food too and I am so happy and feel so grateful that I can help make anyone’s keto journey just a little easier and a little more delicious. So thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for always supporting me and supporting my projects!
