It’s been a while…

I've been off and on my keto journey (mostly off) for the past two years. I'm restarting the journey today with new purpose and new focus. In April 2019, I left a high stress job that was taking more toll on my mental and physical health than I wanted to admit to. Since then, I … Continue reading It’s been a while…

Loaded Cauliflower Bake

I have always loved loaded baked potatoes and loaded mashed potatoes, though. Everything is better with bacon, butter, and cheese, right? This recipe mimics a loaded baked potato. It has bacon, onion, sour cream, and TONS of cheese. It pairs well with any meat, but we like eating it as a side to steak for … Continue reading Loaded Cauliflower Bake

We knew how … Continue reading Keto Dog Food

Today I struggled…

We started keto on June 1, 2018, but had a couple of cheat meals around my birthday at the end of the month/beginning of July. On July 6, 2018, my husband issued a 60-day challenge and basically told me he didn't think I could stick to 20g net carbs a day or less. That was … Continue reading Today I struggled…
