I have been experimenting with creating homemade recipes for various items in the Prolon kit for my modified fasts. In this post, I will share how you can make the kale crackers from the Prolon kit at home. If you want to learn more about modified fasting and the Prolon kit, read my post Modified Fasting: How You Can Benefit from Fasting Without Giving Up Food.
I enjoy cooking and creating recipes. If you do, too, you will like my 5 Prolon-Inspired Soup Recipes post. However, remember that you don’t have to follow recipes to do a modified fast. Read the Easiest and Simples Way Every to Do a Modified Fast for more info.

Remember that Dr. Valter Longo does not recommend you try to DIY the Fasting Mimicking Diet. Buying the kit is the best way to ensure you follow all the guidelines safely.
