Pumpkin Whip Dessert (Keto, Low Carb)

I love summer, today is the first day of summer and I am totally revved up for sitting in the sun, watching the kids play in the sprinkler, drinking iced coffees for a day at the park, early morning runs, and overall the delectable vegetables that are in season this time of year. I am…

Aussie Chicken (Keto friendly)

I really ought to get my hubby to write this post. No one could do the recipe justice better than he could. I am not sure exactly what it is that he loves about this recipe so much; is it the “honey” mustard? Is it the marinated tender chicken breast? Hmmm, maybe its the melty…

Faux Vietnamese (Keto, Low Carb, Dairy Free)

Once when we lived in Florida, Daniel took me on a lunch date to this amazing Vietnamese restaurant where I ate some pretty amazing food. The plate/bowl was full of rice noodles, there was a bowl of broth with chips of pepper flakes, green onion and cilantro floating around in it, then there was meat…

Keto Big Fat Burgers

Cool news y’all! Since I have started strict Keto on Monday, I have lost 2 pounds and already am producing Ketones. I use these test strips to tract Ketosis. I am excited because I went into this week feeling not so great (tired, inflammation, bloated), but am now starting to feel like I am adapting….

Results of Cyclical Keto During AET Treatments (The May Experiment)

As promised, good or bad, I am posting measurements from my Keto experiment this past month. But first…..I must preface…. I have been undergoing treatments for leaky gut and lead poisoning since March of this year. The gut healing has taken second priority in my body to the lead detox (more on this later) ….

Organic vs. NonOrganic

I thought I’d share with you guys this chart study that was done in ’95 on organic vs. nonorganic vegetables. I had asked my doctor if we were being told the truth about organic and whether it was really worth it. He calmly handed me this. Even aside from the harmful chemicals they spray our…

Feta Bacon Asparagus Roasted!

For some reason all of last week I kept dreaming about Italian food. Garlic, fruity olive oil, and cheesey tomatoey perfection. I used to love going out to Italian food chains, but then I started experimenting with home cooked quality ingredients and realized that there is another level altogether to Italian cuisine. Today’s side (or…

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…

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…
