Traveling on Keto

Summer is a time for fun but if you’re still adjusting to a new lifestyle it can bring a few challenges too! I have to say that compared to many diets I have tried in the past, Keto is by far the easiest for me to stick with both inside and outside of my home. Traveling on Keto was stressful the first few times but now I don’t even think about it. Keto is filled with so many options when it comes to eating out that it’s likely you’ll be able to find something suitable no matter where you go! That said I know itRead More →

Keto Krate May box. A review.

When you start a new way of eating, especially an entire diet change like Keto it can be hard to find snacks. While many diets simply cut out the snacks completely I have never found those to be sustainable long term. Somedays you just want to snack! If you don’t have appropriate snacks on hand then you tend to grab whatever is handy and sometimes those aren’t the greatest choices! This Keto Krate review is here to give you another option. While I have learned to cook a variety of keto desserts and snack foods once in a while it’s nice to try something newRead 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 →

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 macros, products useful on a keto diet

Starting a new way of eating can be daunting. There are terms to learn, rules to follow and sometimes entirely new methods of cooking! It’s very easy to get overwhelmed and lost in the chaos of starting out. I have found that this is especially true if you are embracing Keto. When my husband and I started eating Keto we found it best to stick to the basics at first and learn as we went. Some people, however, prefer to have all the information right from the start! Whether you ‘re new to Keto or just looking to learn more then this article is forRead More →

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! When you were a kid and came in from playing outdoors you had a steaming mug of hot chocolate to warm you up. 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 →
