Keto pumpkin pecan pie on a plate will fall leaves surrounding it.

I admit that when I was younger the prospect of pumpkin pie wasn’t much motivation. I generally preferred an apple pie.

Following a keto diet has brought with it so many great changes to our health and lifestyle that I would keep eating this way even if I couldn’t convert my favorite recipes.

Keto Hot chocolate

One of the things I missed last fall when my husband and I started following a Keto diet was hot chocolate. I tried many recipes. Some of them were good, none of them were perfect. Hot chocolate is a staple of fall and winter, it’s more than a drink – its a family tradition!

Last year when it snowed here in Georgia (twice!) the kids got hot chocolate but my husband and I passed. It was sad and I missed it. IRead More →

Keto spaghetti, however, is one of the things a lot of people haveRead More →

Keto has been a fairly popular topic lately and I have found that many people are confused about exactly how it works and what it entails. Many people are interested in this way of eating but often find conflicting or confusing information once they start researching it.

This article on keto diet basics is here to help you cut through a bit of that confusion. My husband and I firstRead More →
