Grilled cheese is the ultimate comfort food. It likely stems back to lunches as a child. I loved them back then because they were one of the items I could help make and who doesn’t love a gooey cheese sandwich? I love them now for some entirely different reasons, though rest assured that taste is still one of the top ones! These keto grilled cheese sandwiches are just as delicious as the ones I had as a child but just as cheap and simple to make! Since I use low carb tortillas these are probably more suited to those following a more dirty style ofRead More →

keto pumpkin cheesecake

Cheesecake is one of those desserts that are very easy to convert to keto, which is great because my family loves some cheesecake! It seemed only natural that we attempt to make a Keto pumpkin cheesecake for the fall season. Of course, we weren’t expecting to make it a slow cooker cheesecake but when your oven decides to go on the fritz what else is a baker to do?!? Of course, this cheesecake can be made in an oven too! Just use a springform pan and cook it for at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes instead! Slow Cooker Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake this post may containRead More →

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 →

Keto Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

When I was little my mother used to make strawberry and rhubarb pies pretty religiously. Rhubarb grew very well back home so it was always available and while it’s somewhat harder to find where I live now the low carb and the relatively high fiber content of this tart-tasting vegetable makes it an excellent Keto treat. After creating this Keto strawberry rhubarb pie I can say without a doubt that it’s worth the search! And of course, we have always loved strawberries around here! When making this recipe I always try to find fresh rhubarb but if that’s unavailable the frozen diced stalks work justRead More →

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 →

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 →

One of the early challenges my husband and I had when starting a keto way of life was figuring out what to take to social gatherings. Gameday parties or birthdays were filled with carb heavy options that were no longer suitable even for a less strict version of keto. The creation of these keto spinach and artichoke poppers was born of two goals – to bring something that our non-keto friends and family would enjoy and to bring something along that we could eat when other options weren’t suitable. These poppers are delicious with loads of flavor! If you don’t eat them all in oneRead More →
