Keto dessert Bars

Everyone loves dessert and that love doesn’t just vanish because we decide to eat healthier. In fact, restricting ourselves to the point where we give in and binge on all of our favorites is one of the top reasons many of us fail when we try a new way of eating. It’s hard to say no! The best solution to this problem and one of the top reasons I feel like I’ve been successful with Keto has been finding suitable alternatives that satisfy my desire for dessert. Being able to indulge in treats like these keto dessert bars makes this way of eating feel lessRead More →

Keto Cauliflower Casserole

My mother has been bragging about this dish for a long time now. this Keto Cauliflower Casserole is one of her favorites to serve when company comes over because not only is it Keto friendly but it tastes so good that everyone loves it. I finally got the chance to try it out while she was down visiting this summer. I went back for seconds and made it again right after she left. One of the things I love most about this recipe is how versatile it is, you could add almost anything to the base recipe and get a great turn-out. Even better isRead More →

Keto Meringue Cookies

Some days just require cookies! When we first started to eat Keto it seemed next to impossible to find suitable desserts. Everything we tried paled in comparison to what we liked before. Lots of people will tell you that embracing Keto means not looking for substitutes but I feel that this mindset is the wrong one to take. Creating a way of eating that we can maintain long-term means being realistic. Realistically I know that someday’s I will want treats. Finding solutions that fit our new way of eating and our desire for dessert without binging on sugar-laden junk food was necessary. Thankfully these KetoRead More →

Keto Strawberry shortcakeheader2

A long time ago I posted my Top 5 Strawberry Recipes. As a family, we loved those recipes but they were enjoyed before we started following the Keto way of eating. Unfortunately, when it comes to keto those recipes don’t quite fit the bill. I have since learned how to convert most recipes to Keto, thanks in part to my handy conversion chart and have decided to go back and re-do as many of them as I can. This Keto Strawberry Shortcake is the first of these attempts and although it took me a few tries I am proud to say that it turned outRead More →

Keto Chili

Chili is something my family is pretty serious about. It’s been a challenge to perfect the recipe so that it suits all of our tastes and we had it perfect. Down to a science. And then – We Went Keto. The Keto way of eating is great and I love it but it meant giving up our old Chili recipe! That was a sad realization – however, we didn’t stay sad for long! With a few twists and tweaks, I managed to turn our old Chili recipe into a Keto Chili Recipe. My husband loved it, my kids asked why I hadn’t made it soonerRead More →

A selection of keto friendly vegetable's

With spring just around the corner, I find myself itching to get out in the garden! With all the changes to our lifestyle, however, our typical garden just won’t work anymore. We used to grow the garden staples – corn, carrots, pea’s, potatoes.  That is hardly keto friendly. I didn’t want to give up my garden so I decided to plant a keto friendly garden this spring! Being self-sustainable and healthy are both important and you don’t have to give up one for the other! This post may contain affiliate links.

A collection of Keto Pantry Staples. The collection includes Coconut Flour,Coconut Oil, Swerve, Olive oil and almond flour decorated with various blue and purple flowers.

  When my husband and I started the Keto way of eating our pantry was given a serious overhaul. With the exception of a few things for the kids, almost everything was given away or just thrown out. We felt it would be easier to stick with our new diet if all of the bad food wasn’t around to tempt us. This approach worked very well, except we were still learning about Keto and at a loss about what should be on our shelves. Thankfully you don’t have to fumble around like we did! We are here to help and this list of Keto PantryRead More →

A few months ago my husband called me up with some information I was skeptical about at first. Like many people, he had been wanting to lose some weight for a very long time. We had tried prescription medication (Phentermine) from the Dr, portion control, attempting to just eat healthier, Slim Fast and other programs in the past and nothing worked. If we did lose weight it would come right back. Keto changed everything. This post may contain affiliate links.
