can't get links to starting keto to work.. ideas?
I just bought the 4 week keto plan and noticed that the grocery list is incomplete, I had to go to every recipe and check what was missing on each one, like tomatoes, cream, avocados, jalapeños, rice cauliflower. Very disappointed. Also, I do not own an air fryer.
Wait that’s not possible. We’ve double and triple checked that list. Can you email me at twosleevers @ Gmail.com (no spaces) and tell me what was missing? I’d love to help you out.
We spent 2 hours on a Saturday night going through the shopping list and did not find a SINGLE error. The ingredients listed as OPTIONAL are not included in the grocery list. Everything else is in the list.
Regards for all your efforts that yyou have put in this.
