The "I Love My Air Fryer" Keto Diet Recipe Book

It's a little pricey for me, but when you consider the cost against the cost of losing trees... it's hard to argue.

Blame it on Back to the Future, Stranger Things and--oh yeah, the parents!--but this kid loves the 80s.

This is generally referred to as “nuclear winter.”
