​​In this interview series ​we ​explore ​how diet and chronic illness affect each other and today I have the honour of sharing Jo's story.

I have compiled a list of breakfast and snack ideas which I have enjoyed since I made my transition to Keto at the start of 2017. I hope these will inspire you.
