The UK has a low carb festival happening this summer! Our low carb and keto community friends in the USA are spoilt for choice. They have Low Carb USA San Diego, Keto Fest, Keto Con..even a Low Carb Cruise! But we in the UK don't need to feel left any more because we have our very own low carb festival happening in the UK and our excitement here at Deliciously Guilt Free has reached 11/10 over it. On Saturday the 20th of July 2019, at the stunning Lake District location of Brathay Hall, Real Food Rocks is taking place. Real Food Rocks is a day festival that will celebrate everything low carb, with an incredible line-up of renowned speakers on the topic of low carb and sugar- free. The festival is being organised by the Public Health Collaboration, a charity that campaigns to raise awareness of the benefits of a low carb diet among the public and health professionals.
