Maria’s blog,, offers innovative recipes and easy-to-understand explanations. She also runs a support site for getting all your questions answered:

Maria’s success stems from her passion for helping others reach and sustain optimal health through programs and education that work on a personal level. She understands the connection between food and how it makes us all feel inside and out. After struggling with her weight throughout her childhood, she decided to study health and wellness so she could help others who are discouraged by their appearance and do not feel their best.

The nutrient-rich, relatively high-fat dietary approach that she developed for herself and the exotic, little-known replacements for typical high-glycemic starchy foods and sugar are what finally gave her total peace with food, something she never imagined possible.

Maria and her husband Craig adopted two boys (Micah and Kai) from Ethiopia. They have raised a keto family for over 5 years showing how this lifestyle can be great for the whole family. Their boys came to them barely registering on the growth charts. Since coming home they have put both of their boys on a high-fat, low-carb diet and they have thrived now both sitting at about 75% on the growth charts at age 6 and 7.
