How a Google Search Led to a Keto Pizza Recipe and Weight Loss for Two Friends

Finished delicious keto pizza with pepperoni, cheese, and fresh basil!

A very funny thing happened a couple weeks ago, I was chatting with an old friend (she's not old, but our friendship is... in fact, she's one of a few people who was originally a customer of my old jewelry biz, and who has become a friend over the years.  Some of my online friendships are VERY old, in fact, my oldest maintained online friendship will "turn 20" next year.) While we were chatting back and forth she asked me about ketogenic diets, a topic I had not specifically thought about for a while.  I've experimented fairly deeply with lower carb, Primal, and Paleo diets for a few years now, and for over six years have stuck with extremely low to no grains (I've been known to eat an average of about 1 tortilla every 1.5 weeks), zero processed sugars, 99% organic (at home at least), and with my carb sources mainly being things like fruits, vegetables, and of course very dark chocolate.  While the way I habitually eat doesn't have any sort of patented name, label, or catchy catch phrase, I will occasionally jokingly refer to it as "Yuppie Atkins". This is ,ainly to highlight the lower(ish) carb aspect and poke fun at my need for upscale, ridiculously high quality foods. 

So, instead of just racking my brain for keto snacks and before sending over a few of my own recipes that happen to be on the very low carb side (including my fun chicken "fried rice" made from cauliflower), I did a search on Google and found this odd URL... "Ruled.Me" It was just weird enough to click on.
