Spotlight: Seattle Foodie Jason Pedwell and KETO Eating

I am long overdue in giving recognition to Jason Pedwell, who loves Foodie Empire so much, he is helping to promote us through Instagram. I adore Instagram and it's one of my favorite platforms for sharing experiences, but it's just another thing I find little time for! I am so grateful to Jason for stepping in and just taking over here. A little about Jason: He helps businesses grow and acquire new customers, generally with success rates of at least 200% ROI with their marketing spend.

And the proof is in the pudding.... Jason has helped us grow our Instagram from 25 followers to over 600 in just a few months.

The other thing about Jason is that he and his wife Katie love being in the kitchen and getting creative. However, they always have "health" in mind and do a lot of cooking the KETO way. I wanted to share some of that here and thank you Jason for sharing your culinary world with us!

By Jason Pedwell:

We’re big believers in clean eating. We both love all types food and everything that’s not good for us, but we’re really big into health. Katie is a Beachbody coach and I am also into fitness and nutrition. About 80% of the things Katie and I cook are recipes we decide on together and sometimes we cook together. Our approach is how can we make it fun and delicious but also want to make healthy too, so our focus is on eating clean, oftentimes Ketogenic (low-carb, high-fat), trying to eat mostly natural foods, organic, greens and proteins.

Favorite Magical Ingredient Right Now

One of my favorite things lately is the "Organic Riced Cauliflower" from Trader Joe's. It's the best cooking hack for substituting pasta and/or rice and is a magical  replacement ingredient for just $2 a bag. It's just hard to find because people store up on it! 

When eating healthy you have to make it interesting.
