Pi day just got infinitely better! A rich, chocolate filling and a light meringue crust make a great formula for Pi day. The meringue crust was something my grandmother made just a few times. I’d forgotten about it until I was thinking about Pi day and what I […]
Let’s look at the hype and some reliable resources to reassure our female (and perhaps our male) members that consistently eating whole, real foods like meat, full-fat dairy, and vegetables and NOT EATING processed packaged foods created in a factory, will result in personal crotch calamity.
My latest book, Keto Living Day by Day, includes a complete 4-week guide to following a ketogenic diet. We will use the book like a textbook and the guide I’m providing here like an active “class”, so that you have support every single day of the 28.
Here’s how to follow the 28 day guide and what you need to do NOW to prepare for September 10th.
When I took the first bite, I nearly cried. My eyes closed, I was transported to my Grandmother’s kitchen just as it was when it was overwhelmed by Christmas baking and cooking. It was G who pulled me back in time as she said, “Mom, is it wrong that I’m really glad that Dad doesn’t like coconut?! I really don’t want to share this!” We savored that cake, each being considerate of the other and only having a few bites over several days. As I offered her the last crumbs, she said, “This. Mom, THIS cake is what I want for my birthday.”
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.
What can you accomplish in 28 days?
Meal planning may or may not excite you. If it doesn’t it, I understand, and I won’t hold it against you; however, if you like having a guide to meals that are truly low carb (or ketogenic), then I think you’ll like this.
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 […]
Dinner in 20 minutes with foods already in your kitchen? Yes please! This is an absolute favorite at our house and really easy clean-up!
If you’ve never made a Dutch Baby, now’s your chance! Simple ingredients, easy clean-up, and smiles all around!
Did your mama ever wake you on a cold fall or winter morning with some warm cinnamon bread? You know the kind. It warmed you just by the smell alone. I loved waking up to it, and I loved devouring it warm with butter. This recipe makes a […]
Your kids, keto or not, can still enjoy a favorite holiday tradition of making cookies for Santa when you use my new shortbread cookie recipe.
When I compiled a collection of all of my Pumpkin Spice recipes, I came up with nine. Nine? That’s not an even number, so just to tidy up the list, I decided to share my Pumpkin Spice Dutch baby recipe.
One of the BEST parts about living keto for me is living keto with others! I love eating keto, talking keto, teaching keto, and preaching keto. It’s what I do!
As we move into week 4, our final week of the 28-day guide, the menu remains simple with foods that are likely to already be in your pantry. Many of the recipes on this menu guide can be made in 30 minutes or less, which is really important to me as a working mom with a very busy family.
I hope that you are enjoying these meal plans and that you, too, are learning how to make keto sustainable and delicious!
