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 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.

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

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 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 →
