I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Hi there, could you possibly use cauliflower rice instead of coconut flour? 🙂

Hi Julia, that's an interesting suggestion and I like it! I'd try 1/4 to 1/2 cup of cooked cauliflower rice (in some ghee and maybe onion?). I hope this helps!
