    Hi Maria,
    I’ve been keto-adapted since January and came to a plateau in my weight loss, then I found your books (practically all of them) and have adapted your philosophy and now am doing much better. My problem is to figure out what the best keto supplements would be for a 5 day trek to Peru, Salkantay- Santa Theresa Trek to Machu Pichu. We will be in a guided group tenting and hiking for 5 days, they provide all the food which as you can guess is high carb. I already know that I will be bringing my own foods as well as eating their protein. What is best for added energy during days of 7-8 hours high altitude hiking? Nuts? keto bars? fat bombs? Any advice would be appreciated! I am a very fit 59 year old as well

  • Totally adding this to my pantry!

    Can’t wait to try the products. Note: You may need to purchase multiple bottles separately to use the 5% discount. You automatically get a discount for multiple bottles, but I don’t think it’s 5%. Or maybe I just can’t do math. LOL

  • Marisa says:

    Thanks Maria and Craig for sharing this recipe and product!

    For anyone interested, I just placed an order for one bottle of ketchup and one bottle of BBQ to try. I received 50 cents off the two bottles automatically and 5% off with Maria’s code (.45 off each bottle) for a total savings of $1.40.

    Two questions – I looked at the ingredients on the Alternasweets website and the BBQ has molasses in it? Is that keto? And which book has your BBQ sauce recipe? I desperately want some good bbq sauce!
