All too often vegan recipes which are child-friendly are way too high in carbohydrates in order to make them tasty and appealing to our young ones. So let us take a look at some great Kato diet (low carbs), healthy and totally meat-free vegan recipes that all kids will love.
Keto diet meaning – A keto diet is a low carb, medium protein, but high in the fat diet which means eating low carb but high fat produce, which in turn causes the liver to produce ketones which eat away at the body’s fat stores (which are created by eating carbs). This is a great diet if you have diabetes or wish to reduce in weight.
A variation of the keto diet and non-keto diet, kids vegan recipes, is a good combination, to maintain a healthy lifestyle and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
