Eye Makeup Tutorial (Brown Tones)

Tutorial is such a funny word to describe this video. I have had a friend recently request a video of products I use/how I do my makeup. I am not generally a video type person, but in the name of sharing, here goes. I mention in the videos that the lighting is TOTALLY unforgiving with…

Keto Journey and Dealing with Bad Mindsets

Last month, I took measurements, talked to my doctor and began my Keto experiment. I have mentioned in past posts that Daniel and I have “experimented” with several different ways of eating that have really been pivotal in getting to know a lot more about the human body and very specifically our own bodies. We…

Roasted Injected  Creole Turkey

I don’t know why at random times I get the urge to relive the holiday season during the spring or summer. Once when I was still working at the office, I had this insatiable desire for pecan pie suddenly. The sweet thing (no pun intended) was that my coworker went home and ON HER LUNCH…

Lemon Curd Whipped Cream Cups (Keto, Paleo option, Low Carb)

Once I made a Paleo lemon tart which had this scrumptious gimme-gimme effect on me which is quite rare. Up to that point I despised all lemon recipes because they had contained lemon extract and none of the sour sweet lemon pucker I expected. A let down. Enter lemon curd. What on earth is curd…

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies w/ Coconut Flour

I first tried these as a print off from a Paleo site a couple of years ago. I’ve heard it said that Keto is just a really strict version of Paleo. I agree with this. That being said, these cookies can be Keto, but you’d have to work it into your daily macros and count…

Baked Bacon Ranch Chicken Thighs (Keto, low carb)

Chicken thighs are perfect for Keto as you are trying to get a majority of your fat intake from animal sources. I look for the ones with the skin still on (yum) and preferably organic. This recipe represents what I am all about. Quick and simple enough to throw together so that you don’t spend…

Copy-Cat Baked Cheese-It’s (low carb, keto) in 10 mins

Sometimes I just get in the mood for something salty and crunchy. Chips specifically. I love sitting down to a movie with a fizzy drink and a bowl of chips, but not just any chips! These little nuggets are tasty and totally keto. I am trying to keep my dairy fairly low, but when thinking…

Be, Don’t Manufacture

Yesterday I ran, today I walked with MapMyFitness! Distance: 3.44mi, time: 01:01:14, pace: 17:47min/mi, speed: 3.37mi/h. http://mapmyfitness.com/workout/2180323772 I used to feel like, if I didn’t exert myself intensely 5 days a week, that I wasn’t making progress. God has a uniquely individual way of helping me to realize how detrimental self degredation can be. It’s…

Cyclic Keto Results and Weigh-In

I recently visited my NAET doctor that I trust literally with my life. He is a very smart and experience 70 something 15 year cancer survivor. He has been helping people become cancer free for many years now and has helped me during my CRAZY story of leaky gut which you can read if you…

Brussels Sprouts Caramelized with Bacon

People can change. As a kid I hated Brussels sprouts. I think it’s only fair to mention that I primarily ate them from a frozen to microwaved standpoint. You see a lot of people are beginning to see the light when it comes to Brussels sprouts, that it REALLY is all about how you cook them….
