How I Got My @$&# Together | Diet and Exercise

  I’m gonna be straight with you – I never thought I would be someone that would hail diet and exercise as a life changer, and I say that because of my past experiences with it. My Past Experience with Diet and Exercise I’ve always struggled with my weight and have attempted to lose weight several times through out my life, and I never saw any results. In fact, I would gain weight. I put on 20 pounds right before my wedding when trying to lose weight. It was baffling and frustrating and no one had answers. And if I […]


Keto Cinnamon Rolls | Christmas Morning Breakfast

Keto Cinnamon Rolls | Christmas Morning Breakfast

Cinnamon rolls were always the delectable breakfast of choice for Christmas morning while growing up. The scent as they baked clung to the air, warm and sweet at the same time. There was nothing like biting into a warm, fluffy cinnamon roll slathered in tangy cream cheese frosting after opening presents. Even just typing this now makes me close my eyes and zoom back to my childhood with a smile on my face. This is a tradition I’d like to keep alive in our household.

My Favorite Keto Desserts

My Favorite Keto Desserts

One of my favorite things about the ketogenic diet is the fact that there are substitutes for just about anything. For me at least, when it comes down to sustainability of a new way of eating, not feeling deprived is key. So the fact that I can pretty much keto – yes, I do use it as a verb now – a version of anything is amazing. And if you’ve known me for any amount of time, then you know that I have a voracious sweet tooth. That little sucker has done me in time and time again, especially during […]


What I Eat in a Day on the Keto Diet

What I Eat in a Day on the Keto Diet

This is probably one of the questions I get asked most frequently. “What do you eat during the day?” I keep it pretty simple. The ketogenic diet can be pretty time consuming when it comes to food preparation, so I try to keep that to a minimum. Breakfast: iced coffee with heavy whipping cream and sugar free Torani vanilla syrup. If I know I have a really busy day coming up and don’t want to have to eat during the day, I’ll reheat two pre-made egg cups as well. Lunch: some sort of light snacking, usually consisting of deli meats […]

We’ve really enjoyed keto versions […]
