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…

Vanilla Iced Coffee Using Coffee Cubes (Low carb, Keto)

I am so excited to share with you one of my favorite summer traditions. This coffee idea is beyond delicious, it’s down right genius. You know the struggle if you are a slow coffee drinker or just an extremely busy person; one minute you have a hot cup of coffee in your hand, you go…

Keto Antipasto Pesto Snacketizer

I am still on my Italian kick. I don’t know what has come over me. Most often I crave things like pizza, garlicky breads, etc…but I am becoming amazed at all of the NON-carb things that lend intense Italian flavors that satisfy not only my need for garlic breath, but also appease the wonderfulness that…

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…

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…
