Keto Soup, Ham, Cheddar and Broccoli makes a delicious combination,

I love soup! This really shouldn’t come as a surprise since I have posted soup recipes in the past. But, the truth is, there is nothing more comforting than a warm bowl of soup on a chilly winter night. That’s not the only great thing about soup though. It’s also easily adapted to almost any tastes, simple to make and generally budget friendly. This particular keto soup is no exception! The delicious mix of ham, cheddar, and broccoli is sure to keep the whole family happy. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if they eat the entire pot in one go! Though, if you manageRead More →

Keto on a budget, shopping tips

As sad as it is to say most of us live in a society where it is far cheaper to eat junk food then it is to eat healthily. This was a challenge that our family recently had to face. We started living a healthier and more active lifestyle. We have always been a family on a budget, relying on coupons, sales and stocking up to see us through meager times. Unfortunately, most of those sales and coupons are only good for prepackaged meals, pasta and canned goods we no longer buy. Eating keto on a budget might seem daunting but it can be done!Read More →

cross training for runners

When you start to love an activity it can be hard to do anything BUT that activity. Running is no exception to this rule! Although I would have considered myself crazy a few years ago running has become an activity I truly love, despite the challenges. It’s an important and well-loved part of my life which keeps not only me but my family and pets healthy too! Cross training for runners used to be a controversial topic. Many trainers felt that people should focus all of their energy on one singular activity. Cross training was often considered pointless and a waste of time. More currentRead More →

A dollar Store decoupage sign with doilies and mod podge

Decoupage is a crafting style that I have been considering for a while now. Over the years I have seen so many cute items created in this manner and you really can’t get any easier supply wise then paper and glue right? However, it wasn’t until I walked into Dollar tree, saw some Mod Podge and recalled this super cute post by Bexa that I decided to really give it a try! A dollar store decoupage project seemed like a perfect addition to our Dollar Store Craft series! This is a craft project that I feel would be great for any age! There are no hotRead More →

Keto Chocolate Bark

As I have mentioned in the past, I am a complete chocoholic even though I follow the keto way of life. Being in love with this sweet dessert can be a challenge when you’re trying to eat healthier. Especially during certain times of the year. Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day come to mind. During those times it seems like every store you walk into wants to tempt you with sweet chocolaty goodness. I have found the best way to combat this temptation is to seek out healthy but still delicious alternatives.  Snacks like the Keto Chocolate Snack bars from Kiss my Keto work pretty well butRead More →

run safe with these 5 tips

Running is a hobby that I have grown to love. Not only is it great exercise but there is something very relaxing about being out on the road. It gives me time to clear my head and work through anything that might be troubling me. But it also tends to be an activity that I do alone and sometimes that causes a bit of worry. It’s not something that I want to worry about but realistically I am a small person with very little options in the way of self-defense. Of course, it’s not just other people I need to worry about but cars and strayRead More →

Wooden Watches for Women

I’ll be honest, I never used to put a lot of thought into the accessories I used with my outfits. To be frank I never really bothered with them at all. As long as I had a shirt and some pants I was fine. Adding necklaces, watches and bracelets seemed frivolous and unnecessary. What I didn’t realize at the time was that this lack of care wasn’t so much because I didn’t like the items but because I didn’t want to pull attention to myself. I didn’t like myself so why should I bother trying to look pretty? When we started our healthier lifestyle I alsoRead More →

I love holidays. Not only are they great for family bonding and spending time together but they give me an excuse to craft. And visit the Dollar Tree. Not sure which one I love more, to be honest!
