Keto Chocolate Candies

Like most people, I enjoy a treat now and then! This is especially true during special times of the year. Whether is a seasonal holiday such as Christmas, Easter or Valentines Day or a celebration like a birthday or an anniversary some days require dessert! Thankfully, Keto is a way of eating that has so many possibilities when it comes to desserts that it can be hard to pick which one I want to make. In fact, part of the reason I have been so successful on Keto is due to the ability to substitute old favorites with healthier but just as delicious options. TheseRead More →

Is Keto Hard to stick to?

When my husband came home and told me about wanting to start Keto I thought he was crazy. Surely there were better ways to get healthy! I had no idea how much it would change my life. Keto might not have been directly responsible for some of these changes but it was definitely the starting point and deserves a lot of credit. Being successful with Keto gave me the confidence to try other life changes I had previously thought impossible. Eating this way made me feel better in general but it also made me realize that I was strong enough to follow through with otherRead More →

Simple Keto Fudge

Fudge is kind of a strange dessert for me. I always liked fudge but I was always really picky about it too. Some fudge was just too rich or too hard. When my family started following the Keto way of life part of our challenge was discovering easy to make desserts. It was no longer acceptable to pull out some pre-made cookie dough and whip up a quick treat like before! We needed something that was fast and simple! While we love our Keto chocolate chip cookies and Keto Lemon/Blueberry Cupcakes they take a bit of preparation! On the flip side, this simple keto fudgeRead More →

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 →

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 →

Keto Chocolate Bars from Kiss My Keto

I might have committed to a Keto lifestyle last year but I fully admit to being a full-fledged chocolate lover. Don’t get me wrong, the benefits of my new way of eating fully outweigh my desire for a chocolate bar but every now and then I do miss them! That’s pretty normal I think, my husband admits to missing potatoes so we all have our weaknesses. To combat his potato cravings we substitute with cauliflower which tends to work pretty well. To combat my chocolate cravings? I’ve tried many things and while I’ve found some decent substitutes I’m always willing to try some new ones.Read More →

Keto stuffed Bell Peppers

Stuffed bell peppers have been a family favorite for a couple of years now! They are super easy to make, which makes them perfect for busy nights. But! Even better they are highly customizable which means they can be adjusted to fit the tastes of almost any family. Bell peppers are my favorite peppers, they are packed with flavor but lack the heat found in other peppers. I have never been a big fan of hot or spicy foods! Thankfully even after we turned to the Keto way of eating we were able to continue enjoying this family favorite with only a few simple adjustments.Read More →

Keto Drinks, Celebratory cocktails

When you choose to follow a Keto diet and a healthier lifestyle then it stands to reason that alcoholic drinks go out the window too.  While drinking isn’t generally considered healthy if we are being realistic with one another, then it’s also a social component that many of us enjoy. Thankfully like cookies and cupcakes, there is a way to fit a couple of keto drinks into your new lifestyle from time to time without too much trouble! Drinking while on Keto isn’t overly complicated but there are a few things you should keep in mind! People who follow a low carb eating style oftenRead More →

Keto Jello Cookies

There is something about holidays that just bring out my desire for cookies. It probably has something to do with a childhood spent baking with my mom. When my husband and I started following a Keto diet in order to lose some weight and start living a healthier lifestyle our cookie recipes needed a bit of a makeover. Thankfully these keto jello cookies are not only very simple to make but can be customized to fit practically any holiday or event! If there is one thing better then a great tasting cookie, it’s a great tasting cookie that can be altered to fit whatever myRead More →
