Let us introduce ourselves! 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♂️
In this first post I thought it would only be appropriate to introduce ourselves… 🥁
Our names are Matt and Marita, and we are a couple from Oslo, Norway. We are both digital designers, and we worked together in the same firm for three years. After three years Marita quit the firm, which turned out to be the best thing ever. They realized they loved each other, and the rest is history… 😍
Now that’s out of the way. I (Marita) discovered the Keto Diet a while ago. In February I decided to give it a go, and Matt was immediately on board (attaboy!).
The transition into Keto has been a challenge, and we have had quite different experiences. We thought we would go more into detail on why we started Keto and our individual transitions in the next posts.
Interested in that? 🤔
Why are we doing this?
Starting this low carb diet.. Wait.. Scratch that.. This low carb way of life! It has been both fun and challenging. We have quickly seen that this is becoming a huge thing in USA , Canada and Australia, but here in Norway it seems we are a bit late on the bandwagon. You are prone to getting some comments and weird looks if you tell people you eat low carb. In addition, there is a serious lack of low carb products in our stores. We hope to change this!
So that is one of the main reasons for starting Love of Avocados. We want to help spread the word! Spread the word of fat 🥓
Another main reason is that this is so damn interesting, fascinating and FUN! After getting into this we found ourselves searching the internet, watching documentaries, reading books, doing all kinds of research day in and day out to learn more about Keto and everything that comes with it.
We have also over these five weeks grown to love the Keto community. People are so enthusiastic, so eager to share knowledge and to interact with each other. We feel right at home here! 🥰
Also.. We love food.. No, you don’t understand.. We LOVE food! So making all kinds of delicious fatty foods and sharing the recipes with the world seems pretty perfect for us.
Bottom line is.. This is our life now! Starting Keto has been a major turning point for us. We really can’t see ourselves ever quitting this. We can’t wait to continue this journey, and we want you to be a part of the ride! 🛤
Above all, we hope and pray that you guys enjoy what we share here!
We will soon share our individual initial experiences regarding the transition to Keto, so stay tuned! 😁 In the meantime, if you are completely new to Keto, this is a great resource!
