    I am on Keto for more than 6 month and I love how I feel. But I cannot get used to eat veggies SO sparingly. Eight servings…. serving size 1/3 cup…..
    Since I do one meal a day, I still can have more than such tiny amounts (what fits just in the hole of my molar tooth LOL). But please let me know, how this will feed eight? Even on keto I like to leave the table satisfied. Thank you

    1. Hi, Flora. This is meant to be a side dish. If you’d like more, you can always increase your amount and have multiple servings.
