Our Cauliflower Hummus recipe is a 2:1 ratio or “Modified Keto”, suitable for all ranges of Ketogenic Therapies. The Modified Ketogenic Diet is a less restrictive version of classic Keto, and can be helpful when starting the diet, or when tapering down to a less restrictive, long term diet. Carrying a macronutrient ratio between 2:1 -1:1, the diet is designed with flexibility in mind to increase compliance and decrease potential digestive discomfort and nutrient deficiency that can occur with long term classic keto eating.
