Container gardening opens up a whole world of indoor and patio gardening that you may not have considered. You can hang containers, or just arrange them on your patio, window sill or balcony. Just a few baskets or pots and your whole living area will look and feel so fresh!

Sometimes, the urge to garden might be stomped out by other circumstances, such as living arrangements or space constrictions. If you live in an apartment, you can’t really operate a full garden, just because you don’t really have a yard! I think that one of the best solutions for this problem is to grow plants in containers. How cool would it be to harvest veggies or herbs from your living room or patio for your veggie side dishes and recipes?

Keto and sugar cravings…it does get easier, I promise! The longer you stay away from sugar and starch, the less you crave it! Sugar is everywhere you look and it might pop up in some surprising places. Did you know that most whole-grain bread has at least one form of sugar in it?

The United States has a national sweet tooth epidemic. Even if you don’t eat a lot of sugary treats you may experience intense sugar cravings in the first few weeks of the keto diet. So many “healthy” carbohydrate foods have hidden sugars in them, your body may be experiencing withdrawal.
