Do you need multivitamins to support your low-carb or Keto diet? Getting all the vitamins you need from low-carb food is possible. After all, many low-carb foods like vegetables, meat and fish are very rich in nutrients.

I used to miss them so much. Problem is, they are so versatile. So once you cut out potatoes, you also cut out fries, crisps, mash, roast potatoes… Sigh.
Don’t despair. There is another way.
The potato might be the most popular root vegetable, but it isn’t the only one.
Its siblings in the root vegetable family are less famous but taste just as good.
