What is ketosis?
When you eat according to the keto diet, you can train your body to use healthy fats as a way of fueling your body.

To become fat adapted, you must eat a keto friendly diet.
What is a crock pot and how does it work?
Honestly, we LOVE our slow cooker.
Our slow cooker means that we can load it up first thing in the day, and set it and go!
There are two main things that I personally love: First, I don’t have to stress about what to cook for dinner after a busy day. Second, It saves me time and I know that I have a healthy meal sorted for dinner. It is a win, win!
Just make sure you check the safety features of your machine and that you have the required amount of liquid.
What is the difference between a crock pot and a slow cooker?
Our understanding is that they are very similar! A slow cooker is a bit of a new version of the crock pot. They both are likely to have a glass lid, a heated plate or element. The main difference is the fact that a slow cooker is more likely to have a metal inside, rather than the ceramic one that a crock pot has. This is not always the case, and it’s best to fully investigate prior to buying.
