July is National Picnic Month. Although picnics are typically dominated by sandwiches, chips, and other high-carb fare, it's definitely possible to put together a low-carb picnic that's every bit as delicious. Here are 5 ideas for getting started.
Video Presentation by Dawn Lemanne, MD: "Carbohydrate Restriction to Enhance Cancer Therapy" March 2018, Low Carb Breckenridge
This month I'm sharing the lecture integrative oncologist Dawn Leanne gave at Low Carb Breckenridge earlier this year.

Just one this month due to being busy with other projects:
June is National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month. Most low-carbers avoid fruit with the exception of berries in small amounts. I eat fresh berries at breakfast most mornings, but that's pretty much it for fruit. Vegetables, on the other hand, I eat liberally at every meal. This month I'm sharing 5 delicious vegetable-based recipes with 5 or fewer carbs per serving.
May is National Egg Month. Like many low-carbers, eggs are a staple food for me. I love their taste, versatility and outstanding nutrition profile. They're wonderful for breakfast, of course, but I enjoy them equally well in a salad or omelet at lunch or dinner. Here are five low-carb recipes featuring eggs, published within the past year.
Video Presentation by Paul Mason, MD: "Treating Metabolic Syndrome" November 2017, Low Carb Down Under Sydney

April is National Garlic Month. Garlic is an herb that adds exceptional flavor, antioxidant power, and an undeniably potent aroma to foods. Fortunately, it's also very low in carbs, especially when used in small amounts (and as you know, a little goes a long way!) Here are 5 mouth-watering low-carb and keto recipes featuring garlic.

It's been a year since I shared a talk from Dr. Colin Champ, a radiation oncologist and researcher with expertise in ketogenic diets for cancer. Colin is without question one of my favorite speakers and writers. Here's another fantastic presentation he gave at the 2017 Conference on Nutritional Ketosis and Metabolic Therapeutics I attended in Tampa last year.

March is National Sauce Month. Most sauces aren't a good fit for low-carb diets because they contain flour, cornstarch sugar, and other high-carb ingredients. However, it's entirely possible to minimize the carbs in sauces without sacrificing flavor or texture, as demonstrated in these 5 delicious recipes. Enjoy!
February is National Hot Breakfast Month. Bacon and egg is the low-carb standard for breakfast. While there's certainly nothing wrong with the tried and true, plenty of other great options are out there -- some that feature eggs, and others that don't. This month, I'm sharing 5 low-carb hot breakfast recipes that are tasty, filling, and healthy from my growing list of low-carb culinary geniuses.
January is National Soup Month. Soup is a great cold-weather option, but many are surprisingly high in carbs. Fortunately, there are plenty of delicious, nourishing low-carb soups to choose from as well. I found five hearty leto-friendly creations from some of my favorite low-carb culinary wizards. Enjoy!

Jackie Ebertstein, RN: "The Road to Type 2 Diabetes and How Low Carb Can Prevent It" July 2017 KetoFest
November is National Diabetes Month, and I can't think of a better presentation on the subject than this one given by my friend and colleague, Jackie Eberstein. Jackie is an registered nurse who worked closely with Dr. Robert Atkins in his private practice for nearly 30 years. During that time, they treated thousands of people with diabetes and prediabetes using a low-carb diet. In this excellent presentation, Jackie discusses the six-stage progression from insulin resistance to advanced diabetes and how carb restriction can halt and often reverse this process. She also shares her own story about how low-carb changed her life and has helped her stay healthy and vibrant for over 40 years.
