Keto and Cancer

I have always loved baking! There is something wholesome and fun about making delicious treats in the kitchen and sharing them with your family. Plus, it makes the house smell divine and who doesn’t love that? This love of baking didn’t vanish when we started eating Keto, but the way we went about it did! The most popular keto flour substitutions are Almond and Coconut flours and while they work quite well they do require a little bit of practice and getting used too. Keto baked goods can be delicious for the whole family. There is no reason that you have to give up allRead More →

keto sweeteners

My husband and I started this Keto journey about 2 years ago now and I’m not lying when I say it’s changed our lives for the better. Keto was a drastic change to our lifestyles but a much-needed one that turned our health around for the better and allowed us to enjoy activities like running and hiking that our previous physical condition made difficult. However, it wasn’t without it’s learning curve. Starting Keto can be confusing, not only because there are different types of keto with vastly different rules but because all of us are different and what works for one person might not workRead 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 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 →

A collection of ingredients for lazy,strict and dirty keto

People seem to have this habit of trying to break things down into cliques. When I first started Keto I was unaware of the groups Keto people fell under. I couldn’t understand why some people would say something was ‘Keto’ and others would disagree.  It was confusing and overwhelming and honestly just a little bit off-putting. People can be very strongly opinionated when it comes to their food. The debate over lazy, strict and dirty keto rages on in the keto community and I am here to help shed some light on it for those of you just starting out. Before I start, however, IRead 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 →
