Keto makes carrots decadent

Finding carrots to be the most wonderful thing on my dinner plate is not something I ever expected to experience, but I made roasted carrots last night. And wow. They were a luxury. This recipe clocks in at 5 net carbs and 5 grams of fat per half cup serving. I had not had anything…
