Low Carb Stuffing

I’ve been making this low carb stuffing for the last 5 Thanksgivings. We love the sausage, mushrooms, celery, etc., but I’ve changed out the “bread” a few times. I’ve used soul bread and cornbread. The cornbread is by far our favorite! This year, I MAY try a mix […]

Who’s Afraid of Real Food? (My response to claims of keto crotch.)

If you’re following along on the 28-day guide in Keto Living Day by Day, we’re starting week 2 on Monday!  The first week has been GREAT fun, and I love the progress that folks have made so far.  Now, I know that it’s a holiday week, so you may need to adjust this menu to fit your celebration plans.  

Keeping Food Logs

While I don’t love tracking my food intake, it can be a very powerful tool for troubleshooting.  In fact, in my Facebook group, if you complain of a stall or of not losing weight quickly enough, you’re likely to be asked for a 5-day food journal. In my […]

gumbalaya

Low Carb Gumbalaya

We fondly call this low carb gumbalaya because it’s a little bit gumbo and a little bit jambalaya. It’s a lot delicious! Very hearty with a thick broth, chicken, kielbasa, and shrimp. It has just a few veggies–onion, bell pepper, and okra and is delicious on its own […]
